President's Message for April 2015

Julie's Jive

Our Spring Banquet is right around the corner on April 10th.  Please sign up using the form in this newsletter and join us for elections, the determination of the “Obtuse award of the Year”, the designation of the “Donny Steffens Award”, and upcoming activities.  In this newsletter, you will notice a ‘Helpful Tips” section that will be linked to our FAQ page on the website.  By using this link, you can always get to the past tips in case you need them as a reference. 

If you are interested in going to Chicago on May 16th for the Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council’s seminar, please contact Dick Wortiska at

We are including an ‘emergency card’ in our Newsletter.  You can fill this out & place it on your person in case of emergencies.  This has come about from discussions with trip leaders who would like to have an emergency contact list with them.  We will continue to provide an emergency contact list to the trip leaders, but this will not help a ski patrol to know who to contact.  This card could help. 

I want to take a minute to thank everyone for their assistance during our adventure from South Lake Tahoe.  Dick with 6 others, were stranded in Reno, while the rest of us boarded the plane.  Without Dick and his wealth of information, we were literally “up in the air” on how to move forward.  After landing in Chicago, the group really pulled together to find the luggage of those still stranded in Reno and to make plans to bring things home to them.  All in all, EVERYONE was helpful and accommodating, making the trip home like skiing on corduroy—enjoyable J
