How many skiers does it take to fill a bar?

We're offering this up as proof that people who ski are not only healthy, athletic types. They are also inventive and able to squeeze into very small places.

At 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 20, the SnoJets, a local ski club, broke the record for the most people inside Sam's, the World's Smallest Bar, at 22 N. Tejon St.

The SnoJets now hold the "Sam's Cram" record with 63 people squeezed into 109.57 square feet. The previous record was 57 people. Participants signed a log book that will be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.

The SnoJets meet every Thursday at Howard's Pit Barbeque. The club sponsors a variety of activities including group trips to ski areas. (No word on how many SnoJets can fit in a van.) For more info about the SnoJets, call Marlys Fleharty at 477-0141 or Chris Schmidt at 265-4686.
