President's message April 2014

Julie's Jive

We had wonderful trips for the 2013-2014 ski season!  With a Marquette Day Trip, a week at Breckenridge, a weekend to Boyne Highlands/Nubs Nob and then finally our Canadian trip to Searchmont, the season couldn’t have been much better!  The club received 4 free lift tickets from Searchmont for the 2014-2015 ski season.  If anyone is interested in these tickets, please let Adam Hanson know.  To finish the great year off, we have our Spring Banquet to look forward to on April 11th. 

To find more details for the Spring Banquet, the sign-up form is in this month’s Newsletter.  We will be giving out the “Don Steffens Memorial” Ski Trash Award.  This is an engraved plaque that is given to the person who has skied the most on our Gelandesprung Ski Club and Sly Fox Ski Club trips.  We will also be giving out the Obtuse Award.  This is a Gelandegnome and is given to the best Obtuse Award winner of the year. 

We will also be voting for three positions:  the VP, treasurer and secretary.  This is the year for re-elections of the VP and treasurer.  Unfortunately, Niels Jensen will be stepping down as our secretary since he will be out of the area more than 50% of the time this coming year.  Please find the job descriptions for the VP, treasurer and secretary further down in this Newsletter.  Please take a look at these descriptions to see if you may be interested.     

CMSC, Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council, is happening on May 17th.  By attending this, the board comes away with ideas for next season.  The board is also starting to plan this summer’s activities.  We have bike rides and Friday night get-togethers on the agenda.  Adam Hanson is doing a great job organizing these activities.  Hope to see everyone at the Spring Banquet !!
