A Scavenger Hunt to Explore the Copper Mountain Music Festival 2018

first_imgFind your next adventure on a Nat Geo map! With so many exciting new maps being released for the summer, there were plenty of adventures to be found. The Road Atlas‘s were especially popular– lets all road trip north to escape the heat. Check out the lightness and ease of setting up and breaking down a pair of LEKI Poles! It only took us a few minutes to master the ‘LEKI pull.’ If you hold them in two specific spots and hold, it literally builds itself in less than a second. We had a great time showing scavenger hunt participants the fastest way to equip themselves with poles. Take a crazy photo in a Crazy Creek chair! We had Crazy Creek chairs stationed all around the festival. You had your pick of the original chair or Crazy Legs Quad Beach/Festival Chair or Crazy Legs Leisure Chair. How crazy was your crazy photo? Experience the future, with a UCO headlamp! Before trying a UCO headlamp, I had no idea there could be so many improvements to the classic model you find at your local sporting goods store. Copper Mountain attendees got to see for themselves why this headlamp is brighter than the rest (literally). We attended our second year of Copper Mountain Music Festival, and enjoyed the second year of dipping and ducking around Center Village ticking off activities in a mountain-wide scavenger hunt. Follow along in our own virtual scavenger hunt as we explore Copper and the companies that helped made Copper Mountain Music Festival awesome for the second year in a row.Pack a Sea To Summit Ultra Light Hammock. These hammocks are ultra light, and ultra easy to pack. Coming in at the super skinny 5.4 ounces, they’re breathable but able to support you in all your relaxing needs. If you need reassurance, take a look at the video we did last year. Check out the Wenzel Tent! What better way to get away from the energy of the festival than to peak into a Wenzel tent and have some time to yourself. We set up the tent in the grass and let participants have some time out of the sun. Copper Mountain is a resort built on family and community. We felt right at home when we pulled into the festival for the second time. Everyone who participated in the scavenger hunt was happy, excited, and ready to try new things. If that’s not a good basis for a community, we don’t know what is.We have plenty of community events coming up and we would love to see you at all of them! Next Saturday, July 14th, we are working with Salida Mountain Trails to build more trails in the area. On July 21st we are hosting our second annual Elevation Outdoors group campout. Hope to see you there! Guess the weight of the Lowe Alpine pack! Can you virtually guess it through the screen? We even let participants hold the pack to get a better guess. This Aeon weighs in at a mere 33 ounces and functions as both a daypack or one-night backpacking backpack. Tour the Live Outside and Play Van.We had our home on display for everyone to peek into. This year, Timbr Basecamps helped with our build, and then we finished it off. Plenty of questions, plenty of answers, and plenty of interest in the #vanlife. Take a photo of your best “air row” in an Old Town kayak! You don’t need water to experience how comfortable these kayaks are. Even on land you can explore the storage possibilities and recline in the fully adjustable seat. We had many a kid and adult alike take em out for an “air spin” Learn how to expand and break down a Hydrapak! When you can hold a packed up HydraPak in your hands, you can truly see how convenient they are. This water bottle got popped in and out all day long and still held strong by the end of the day. Challenge a Nite Ize gear tie by hanging as much gear as possible! This one was tough to do because we were worried the tent was going to break before the gear tie did. These tiny guys are mighty, reusable, and super duper strong. Taste some Mountain House freeze-dried food. Slingin’ samples all day! We had the two burner going from morning to evening making Mountain House samples. With a variety of flavors to try, we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered.last_img read more

Reports: Cellino fined €40,000 for tax evasion

first_img1 Massimo Cellino Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has been found guilty of tax evasion and fined €40,000 in an Italian court, according to reports in Sardinia.Cellino has been convicted for failing to pay VAT on an imported Range Rover in a court in Cagliari, according to Italian news website L’Union Sarda.it.The 58-year-old, who recently served a four-month ban by the Football League for failing to pay tax on a yacht, was acquitted of customs offences on the Range Rover, which had been imported from the United States.Cellino may now face investigation by the Football League to establish whether this latest conviction was confirmed by the court judge to be a dishonest act.The same judge in Cagliari, Dr Sandra Lepore, convicted Cellino of tax evasion in relation to his yacht, Nelie, last year and fined him €600,000 euros.That conviction led to the former Cagliari owner being disqualified from having any executive influence at Leeds for four months by the Football League.The League ruled that because the tax offence involving the yacht Nelie had been confirmed by the Italian judge to have been a dishonest act, Cellino failed its Owners and Directors test.Cellino was banned in December and failed to have his disqualification overturned at a Football League hearing in January.The ban was extended until the end of the season as a result of Cellino’s failure to disclose court documents, which confirmed non-payment of tax on Nelie had been a dishonest act.Cellino returned to office at Leeds following the expiry of his ban on May 3 and has since had his Leeds ownership status approved by the League.He is currently appealing against his disqualification through the Football Association’s arbitration process.Cellino’s legal team claimed the guilty verdict against him in Italy over his yacht Nelie should not be classed as a formal conviction until it has passed through three stages of appeal, an argument which was turned down when he challenged his League disqualification earlier this year.The former Cagliari owner also faces a separate court hearing in Italy for tax evasion in relation to a second yacht, Lucky 23, in October. That case was adjourned until October 16 earlier this month.News website Cagliaripad reported the yacht Lucky 23 had been imported from the US to Italy in a container in May 2011 and that Cellino had been charged with failing to pay 84,122 euros on tax duty.last_img read more
