FINAL PRAY FOR SNOW

The final Pray for Snow is happening tomorrow (Thursday, March 14th) at the Tap Room! This last one will feature lift tickets for Mt. Ashland & Hoodoo, in addition to prizes from Peak Sports and other cool stuff! There will also be a cornhole tournament with a pretty kick-ass grand prize for the winners - a custom Block 15 cornhole set! Block 15 employees have been down on their luck for the past few events, so maybe this is someone’s chance! (Just make sure to wear non-Block 15 clothing!)

Now it’s time to Pray for Sun!
