President's message June 2013

We are already at it planning for the upcoming ski season. Adam, Mike B., Dick and I went to Chicago to check out new trip ideas and work out final details on this year’s out west trip. We are heading to a place that we haven’t been to in a long time. Again we will be offering both train and flight options. Speaking of trains, those who rode the train to Whitefish last year have about a $100 dollar credit to use given to Winter Ski and Sport from the train company for the delays that were experienced. The board still has to work out details of the credit and how to apply it. Rates and details of the trip will follow in upcoming newsletters. And no, I didn’t forget to name the place, I just want to keep you in suspense because it amuses me!

Our good buddy Adam has been working on summer events, which we already have a few planned (details in this newsletter). Bike rides, summer picnic and golfing are but a few. Adam is open to ideas but remember he cannot do it alone. If you would like to plan an event he will help you but be prepared to run with it. Dee Dee has set up the kayaking event, which should be a great time. Please sign up early so she can better prepare for the event.

We are open to all ideas and thoughts concerning the club. This is your club, the board just implements the business end of things. We want to make this the best it can be and the only way to do that is with feedback and communication. Over the next couple of months we will be finalizing our 2013-2014-ski season trip schedule so your input would be helpful. We are looking at Tuesday, June 4th for our next board meeting. We will try to plan far enough in advanced to give you the chance to attend board meetings if you wish. Better communication was one of the areas the outgoing board identified as needing improvement so we will be paying close attention to that.

I hope to see all of you this summer. Be safe, have fun and get ready for a great upcoming ski season!
