Local Ski Trips
As a Board we discussed the need to develop some local ski trips (e.g., Timberline, Canaan Valley Resort, Snowshoe) of shorter duration (i.e., less than a week in duration) as a means for engaging more of our members in skiing/snowboarding opportunities with KSC members. I’ll be sending out a short survey in the next couple of days to assess member interest and where most people would like to go. If anyone has information on lodging options, particularly for Canaan Valley (e.g., condos or houses that can be rented for small groups) please share that information with Tom Connelly.
Another activity idea brought forth by Martha Endres (Director of Activities) is that of a Game Night as part of one of our Membership Meetings. In Martha’s own words, “We could have our regular informational meeting and then break into small groups to play games. Folks could bring board games, card games, etc. I can contribute several-Scrabble, Charades, etc.”
The Board has endorsed this idea for an activity to “add a bit of spice” to our monthly Membership Meetings. Our November Membership Meeting is scheduled for November 1, 2022 at The Bear’s Den Restaurant, 405 Capitol Street beginning at 6:30 pm, and at this meeting we will give Martha’s idea a “test drive!” So, if you have a favorite board game or card game, bring it with you and we’ll see what happens!
Crescent Ski Council Fall Conference
I will be traveling to Gatlinburg, Tenn., October 28-30, 2022, to represent your interests at the CSC Fall Conference where I’ll be joining representatives from our sister ski clubs in CSC as we review vendor presentations for possible CSC ski/snowboard trips for the 2023-2024 season.
That’s all for now. Think snow!
