    Friday, January 29, 2010- Depart Portland Maine around 10AM. Arrive at our Hotel the Super 8 Quebec City for check in. After check in you will receive your Carnival Effigy ( This is your pass to all of the Carnival Activities and is good for the entire time we are there. ) We will set a time for the group to meet for dinner but you feel free to make your own plans.

    Saturday, January 30, 2010- Today is a day with 2 options. Option 1 (additional cost) is to hit the slopes of Mont-Sainte-Anne for a day of Skiing or Snowboarding. We will leave at 8:00AM and return after the the mountain closes at 3:45PM. We should be back to our Hotel by 4:30PM. Option 2 is to explore the city of Quebec. You can use your Effigy to get into to any Carnival related activities. You can visit the ice hotel or go shopping in downtown Quebec, one of the most European cities in the western Hemisphere. We will again set a time for a group dinner but you will be on your own if you are not interested in joining the group. After that we will enjoy the Carnival Night life by hitting the activities and drinking establishments that are part of the celebration.

    Sunday, January 31, 2010- Our last day in Quebec. There will be free time until our departure at Noon. You can get in last minute shopping. Last minute food.

    Next time you might want to either (1) ask permission before posting this stuff, or (2) contact me about purchasing advertising. I'll let it slide this time, but I merged your three threads.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Sorry about that Greg. Thanks for the heads up.

    This guy carpet-bombed First Tracks Online too. Not cool.

    I am a little unclear about what we are doing incorrectly...

    Carpet Bomb seems to imply that we are being destructive in some way. We are not trying to ruin any forums by posting relevant information on them.

    We are trying to get the word out about trips we are running. If you are in the Portland Maine area then these trips are a great deal. We save people money and help them meet skiers and snowboarders that they can then go on their own trips with.

    Please advise on what we should be doing differently. We are very open to constructive criticism.

    If your only purpose in posting is to 'advertise' your organization, then you should be forming an advertising partnership with Greg.

    Just going onto forums and broadcasting your business is SPAM. People get annoyed by that sort of thing.

    Agree with deadhead.

    It would be different if you were a participant in the forums on a regular basis for reasons other than promoting your trips (see: KingM, who is a little different because he actually does pay greg for advertisements )...

    By posting in the manner you have, it basically looks like you're trying to get 'free advertising' without contributing anything to the community.

    We have already been informed about this and Greg has spoken to us about it. Is there a difference between us and anyone else posting about a trip? We are not profiting from these trips.
