DOASBA PROMO NA 8.5 x 11 blank“We do this every year,” said J.P Pardy, owner of Recess.

“Annually this time of year we do a video premiere to get everyone together and excited to kick off the winter season and to celebrate our anniversary too.”

Starting at 5 p.m., professional snowboarders from Capita, a snowboarding company, will be at Recess to sign autographs and meet fans. Afterwards, a video premiere will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Boone Saloon on King Street. The event is open to all ages until 10 p.m., and to attendees aged 21 and up after 10 p.m.

“The video is a Capita video, a snowboarding company, and it is a video with their pro riders and athletes,” Pardy said.

“We show one or two videos per year and this one happens to be a Capita one. This is their second video and we did the first one two years ago.”

The video, Defenders of Awesome 2: Stay Bad Ass, will begin at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to the video screening, a raffle will also be held with great prizes.

“We will sell tickets at the shop that day and at Boone Saloon,” Pardy said. “They are $1 raffle tickets to get everyone to have fun and participate.”

Prizes for this year’s raffle include a snowboard, DVDs and the grand prize: a season pass to Beech Mountain Resort.
