President's message January 2014

Julie's Jive

Tis the season to be skiing—Fa La La La La……!!!  The number of people going on our Marquette Day Trip had exceeded our expectations & we needed to get a bigger bus!!  The trip leaders, Frank Wickham & Mike Bast did a great job of promoting the day.  There are still spots open for Boyne Highlands/Nubs Nob and Searchmont, an possibly one spot for the Breckenridge Week — so please sign up when you can.  The sooner the trip leaders know how many people would like to go, the easier it is for them to start planning.

It was decided that the money gathered at the Fall Banquet for the helmet camera would go to Special Olympics.  We were able to send them $238.00.   

After our pre-trip meeting for Marquette was also a Christmas Party for the ski club.  Adam, our Social Events Coordinator, had a fun raffle of 2 items from Zellers and he asked The Woods to put out great hors d’oeuvres.

During the Christmas party, we had a guest speaker, Doug Ramsay, from a teen ski club called “The Crew” from Green Bay.   They are looking for adults to help the teens in their club ski.  (This is also a great way to promote our club, as these teens become 21; they are already familiar with Gelandesprung.)  If you know of anyone from age 14-21 that would like to ski or would like more information, please contact Doug, or James Johnson
