Good Times at Vertebrae Lodge

Snowcat Skiing at Chatter Creek
When a group of old friends get together at Chatter Creek, they can have a lot of fun. They have fun on the hill, sharing the great skiing. They have fun in the snowcats, sharing terrible jokes and they have fun in the lodge with seances in the hot tub, games in the bar, and speeches and awards and more jokes at dinner.
It's pretty common at Chatter Creek for awards to be given for all sorts accomplishments (and misdeeds too). There is the "Pink Purse" award given for missteps on the ski hill. It moves constantly about each ski group during the day, to be finally awarded by general acclaim each night at dinner. Now, there is also the "Limp Cock Award", Chatter 's "Oscar", given for reasons we can't remember. Here we have our illustrious MC, Hartley, ex-water-ski champion awarding the Limp Cock Award to Al, ex national ski racer and ex motorcycle racer (well perhaps).
When last seen, the Limp Cock Award was decorating the water spigot in the kitchen. We mustn't lose track of that! It's a priceless and esteemed keeper with a long and honourable history.
