Newschoolers has a bit of a reputation for hosting wild and janky events. We like to kick it, we like to have fun, and we feel that the less you try and control outcomes, the likelier you are to produce good ones. We have learned to embrace the unknown.

And that is, in many ways, what the Newschoolers Gathering at Loon Mountain, NH is all about. Entering its third year, the gathering is an opportunity to step out from behind the keyboard and saddle up for a weekend of shredding, good times and maybe just a little partying. It’s fast becoming the highlight of the newschoolers winter calendar, and we want you to be there with us.

So start making those phonecalls, start pleadings with your bosses and your parents and your college administrators. Tell them it's important, tell them that you have an opportunity to meet Doug Bishop, live in person. Tell them you would rather drive six hours to New Hampshire to ski with a bunch of people you know only by username, than do anything else next weekend!
