Once you finish, we invite you to lend your creation to us for our New Year art installation. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop-off time.

There will be an opening reception in early February - details to come upon submission.
Ideas: raining cats and dogs, a cat using a megaphone to coordinate other cats, a dog in outer space, a dog taking a cat on a date, a dog asleep on a cat tower, a cat-dog hybrid - literally anything with a cat or a dog!
Submissions are due by Monday, January 17th. You can drop off your work at Coyote North or Coyote Central.

Wunderkind Winter Break Mountain Bike Programs
Momentum Sports will be offering full-day mountain bike programs over winter break for more seasoned riders who are comfortable riding off paved surfaces and enjoy climbing, descending, jumping, dropping, and full-sending the incredible Pacific Northwest Terrain at our disposal.

The program will run both Mondays and both Tuesdays during winter break (Dec. 20, 21, 27, and 28) from 9am – 4pm and the cost is $90 + tax ($99.23 after tax). Premium, full suspension mountain bikes are available for rent for those interested or you can bring your own bike. Email email@example.com if you’re interested in registering. Depending on interest and demand, a third day of riding may be added on both Wednesdays of winter break (Dec. 22nd & 29th).
