    Default Help - need a name for the Towers!

    Hey guys...

    My creative juices are almost empty due to various engineering/technical issues draining them.

    I think it is time that we figure out a formal name for the new tower so I am coming to you for some help.

    While we were devouring the world famous "porker" pizza this past Saturday afternoon, someone mentioned the name "Sierra Summit" and it seems to be sticking with me quite nicely. "Summit" for short -- or maybe Summit-3?

    The tower is definitely part of the Sierra family so in naming the speaker, please keep that in mind.

    Please throw your ideas out there and I have some custom Ascend baseball hats for the top 3 names.

    Have fun!

    Good Sound To You!

    After one scotch of deliberation:

    The Ascend High Cascade Tower.

    Shorthand could be:
    Sierra-3 HCT, Sierra Cascade (SC), Sierra-3 Cascade Tower (SCT), or just Ascend HCT.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascade_Range
    The Cascades are just a geographic step north from the Sierra Nevada mountains, a trail of impressive, dangerous places...specifically North American volcanoes, called the High Cascades.

    cas·cade
       /kęsˈkeɪd/ Show Spelled [kas-keyd] Show IPA noun, verb, -cad·ed, -cad·ing.
    –noun
    1. a waterfall descending over a steep, rocky surface.
    2. a series of shallow or steplike waterfalls, either natural or artificial.
    3. anything that resembles a waterfall, esp. in seeming to flow or fall in abundance: a cascade of roses covering the wall.5.
    6. a type of firework resembling a waterfall in effect.
    7. Chemistry . a series of vessels, from each of which a fluid successively overflows to the next, thus presenting a large absorbing surface, as to a gas.
    8. Electricity . an arrangement of component devices, as electrolytic cells, each of which feeds into the next in succession.
    9. Biochemistry . a series of reactions catalyzed by enzymes that are activated sequentially by successive products of the reactions, resulting in an amplification of the initial response.
    - verb
    1. (intr) to flow or fall in

    It's all there: flow, fire, elegance, beauty, prominence, power. Also it seems to pass the google test.

    Dave, you can name that baby after your world famous pizza experience and call it the Sierra Porker!

    But seriously, here are some more useful suggestions:

    Sierra Insight

    Sierra Citadel

    I still really like Sierra Summit.
