Make sure to bring your appetite and see how much chocolate you can eat in three hours, and don't forget to vote for your favorite in each category.
Friday, February 3 - Avalanche Awareness Prevention
Being stuck in an avalanche is a fear of many people, and while for some it isn't a reality, in Idaho it is. Anytime you head to the mountains, there is a chance an avalanche could occur. No matter how big or small the risk is, it is always good to be prepared and know what to do if one does occur. There is an avalanche awareness prevention class this Friday, at Adventure Motorsports of Twin Falls from 6 PM until 8:30 PM. If you are someone that spends a lot of time in the mountains during the winter, this is a great event to attend. Everyone in the area should check it out to be prepared, but if you can't, make sure to check with someone that went and see what they picked up. Click on the link for more information.

The weather should be better this weekend than last, which makes getting out of the house a little easier. If you are looking to get out of the house this weekend, go eat as much chocolate as your stomach will allow, search for a new career, learn to sew or improve your sewing skills, make a quilt, enjoy some time horsin' around, jump on a trampoline like a child, or learn what to do in case of an avalanche. If these events aren't what you are looking for, there is a ton more to do this weekend. Whatever you decide to do, have fun, be safe, and enjoy your weekend.
