HISTORICAL SOCIETY News:
The Los Alamos Historical Society and Pajarito Mountain Ski Area have teamed up for a raffle featuring the publication, Just Crazy to Ski: A Fifty Year History of Skiing at Los Alamos.
For $10, raffle ticket buyers will receive the book and an opportunity to win a 2013-2014 season pass to the Ski Hill.
Only 700 tickets will be sold. The drawing will be held Nov. 1, 2013. (Yes, that is more than one year away, as is the season for which the ski pass can be used.)
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Historical Society’s publishing venture, Bathtub Row Press, which has put out more than 30 books on the history of Los Alamos and the Pajarito Plateau.
Titles include, The Secret Project Notebook, a children’s fiction book about the Manhattan Project, Sentinels on Stone, a book about area petroglyphs, and the award-winning biography, At Home on the Slopes of Mountains: The Story of Peggy Pond Church.
Just Crazy to Ski raffle tickets are available at the Los Alamos Historical Museum Shop. The Museum is open 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets also will be sold at other Historical Society events such as the Los Alamos Book Fair in Fuller Lodge Sept. 8 and at upcoming lectures Sept. 11, Oct. 9 and Nov. 13.
