What is Whistler’s Greatest Icon?

ICON GONE 6TH OCCURING MARCH 6TH AT MERLIN'S!

 
Icon [AHY-kon] noun: A person, place or thing of great cultural significance.

Icon Gone [AHY-kon gon] eventA no-holds-barred critical-thinking cage match to determine Whistler‘s greatest icon.

Tailor-made for a town with as quirky and contested a history as Whistler, this raucous community celebration pits passionate, outspoken locals against each other in a rhetorical joust to determine Whistler’s greatest historical icons.

The formula is simple, the competition fierce: eight local agitators appear on stage to argue on behalf of a potential icon. A head-to-head elimination format will put these community pillars through the proverbial pressure cooker, whittling them down to an eventual champion deemed most worthy of the exalted “icon” status.

Icons—our shared experiences, cherished landmarks, and beloved neighbours—are the essence of our shared identity, the difference between a collection of people and a real community. So what are Whistler’s greatest icons? Is it Black Tusk? Opening day gondola line-ups? Your favourite local visionary or eccentric? Or is it some under-appreciated yet essential element of our social fabric? Come with an opinion, and come prepared to laugh, cheer, maybe even cry at one of the few events that can truly claim to be “history in the making.”
 
Icon Gone 6 will be occurring on March 6th 2013 at Merlin's Bar & Grill. We are somewhat saddened to announce that this will indeed be the final Icon Gone. The event has had a great run, but all good things must come to an end. We hope to meet your needs for contentious, live debating action through our new event series, Whistler Debates!
