Tips;
-Your Kermode Snow Bear does not have to be any particular size.
-Wait for a wetter snow, dry powdery snow doesn't build well.
-Leave your surface rough as you build, snow sticks to itself better if rough.
-Have salt available for around the bear as the compacted snow will quickly turn to ice.
 Be safe first!
-It's OK to use props like scarves, rocks for eyes and nose and boards to help hold up
 any spaces under the bear.
-You can build more than one if you like, build a family of Kermodes, it's all for the photo!
-Take a digital photo set on highest resolution for a better photo.
-If you don't have a digital camera, it's OK to mail a regular photo or polaroid to post office
 box mentioned above.
-Put yourself in the photo with the bear for relativity of size.

The $100 prize will be awarded on the first day of spring March 20 2010
