THE FOUR TAUS also had trips to the Colorado ski lodges during one of their spring breaks and again durng a Christmas vacation. All expenses for food, lodging, liquor, and skiing were paid for by the Lodge in exchange for the band playing music each night.

In the above picture the four band members are taking a break from the ski slopes and having a beer. By this time, Kirby and Ray were married and the Lodge paid all expenses for both wives.

Interestingly, upon graduation, both Kirby and Ray moved to Denver, Colorado, and lived there a number of years. The above picture was taken during spring break.

NEW YEARS EVE DANCE

HARVEY, DAN, RAY, AND KIRBY
During the Christmas break (shown above), one member of the band took his super 8 mm movie camera along on the trip. The above picture was made by taking a single frame of the 8 mm movie film and blowing it up. The quality of the picture is poor by comparsion to a 35mm still camera. However, one can still get an idea of the fun that everyone had at the New Years Eve dance which was held at the ski lodge.

Above, you see Ray wearing a goofy mask while he is singing a song. Remember, the drinks were free and it was New Years Eve. What a hoot!
