Our annual Ski day sponsored by Drs. Brick, Ready and
Vrahas took place on March 6, 2010 at Waterville Valley Ski
Resort. We had a strong showing of residents this year with
over 23 residents/fellows plus their families. It was a beautiful
sunny weekend with slick snow conditions. Ski and snowboarders
of all experiences came out for this exciting weekend.
Tension was high as the residents and the staff/family
team competed in the ski race. With the Winter Olympics
fresh on our minds, the competitors fearlessly flew out of
the gates. Some of the times recorded were mind-blowing,
but once again the staff/family team won by a landslide by
taking the top six finishes and seven out the top ten finishes.
Fortunately, no one was hurt this day except for some bumps,
bruises and abrasions. We even had Dr. Mansfield covering
the triage clinic. At the end of the day, the staff/family had the
opportunity celebrate their victory at The Bucket where beers
were consumed by the six-packs.
At the end of the night, Dr. Brick graciously hosted us
at his condo. We toasted the days events while roasting the
juniors with orthopaedic cases from this past ski season. We
witnessed and clapped for the Ready Lauge-Hansen "SADSER-
PAB-PER" dance. We feasted on tuna steaks, shrimp
cocktails and consumed laughter throughout the night.
