Minyan Mountain Magic



I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again.
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend


Do you consider yourself spontaneous? Do you like to take advantage of life? Are you sick and tired of the flickering ticks and in need of some serious educational relaxation? The first annual Minyans in the mountains retreat is TWO (count 'em!) days away and the critters are beside themselves with giddy excitement. Crested Butte provides a beautiful backdrop to build relationships, further financial skillsets and vibe with the Minyanville family. All attendees will receive a special collection of gifts that include the new Minyanville DVD, posters, tees, cookies, the 100-year Dow chart and much, much more. Below is the latest itinerary of what's scheduled for ye faithful.
