President's message November 2013

The Fall Banquet was a success:  After we sat down to a wonderful meal, Ron got up & made a few announcements.  Unfortunately, Jim Sievert had to step down from the Treasurer’s position for personal reasons.  Since Ron is familiar with QuickBooks Accounting, he took over the Treasurer’s position.  I moved up to the President’s position and Mike Komoroske, the Vice Presidents position.  This was all done according to the Gelandesprung Bylaws.

From there, I issued Senny Wagner the Donny Steffans Award that he had won last season.  We had his name and number of days skied for the season (32 in all) engraved on it.  Dar, president of the Sly Fox Club, gave a great PowerPoint presentation on all of the ski trips both clubs have this year.  The club raffled off a dinner at The Woods and a free trip on our day trip to Marquette.  Dick Wortiska collected money for a raffle for a helmet camera.  The proceeds from the money collected by Dick will be given to a charity.

We will be having a Christmas party in conjunction with our pre-Marquette trip meeting on December 17th.  This event will be held at The Woods.  We still have room on all of our trips, (Marquette, Boyne and Searchmont) including 8 seats for Breckenridge.  I am getting excited for the snow to fly and the ski season to begin !!
