President's message July 2013

Our summer events are in full swing now and we have had some decent turnouts at the first few. Sorry to say the kayak thing didn’t work out but a huge thanks to Dee Dee for her efforts in arranging the event. I went to the first happy hour event, which was a fun night with about 20 to 25 people showing up. We even had three potential new members there to check us out. I hope to see them on the slopes this winter. Check out the newsletter for up-coming events and come on and join in on the fun!

As you may have heard “cause no one can keep a secret”, we are heading to Breckenridge this January. This will be a great trip and we were told a new part of the mountain should be open when we get there. I’m excited about this trip as I haven’t been there for a very long time and it will include a day trip to Vail for those who so choose. Also you will be able to ski Keystone and A-basin on this trip. I can feel my legs burning already!

We will be discontinuing snail mailing the newsletter in the near future. The cost, time and effort for the few that still get snail mail requires too many resources. This is a volunteer based organization and people’s time and effort are at a premium.  It is time consuming to snail mail the newsletter. Please make arrangements to get a copy from a friend or go to the library and view it on line. It will make life a lot easier for our editor. This subject has been kicked around for several years now and I think it is time to act on it. Your understanding in this matter is appreciated and we are not doing it to offend anyone.

I hope you all are enjoying the summer and I hope to see you soon at one of our summer events!
