Life on Adam's Street
Hello and welcome to another page-turning edition of the Gelandesprung Gazette, your monthly newsletter. We are happy to have you and glad that you have come back around for another update. If that’s why you’re here, then definitely read on as I have some important news to share here in this section.
The Board and I were extremely pleased with the turnout at our social gathering October 2 at The Woods. We have been blown away by the fact that we already have 63 registrations for our Big Sky Trip as well! You have demonstrated to us that you definitely want to gather and ski again. It is our intention to do that, to the best of our ability, keeping member safety in mind.
Covid is putting a damper on our excitement and bringing us back to reality. Regardless of your viewpoints, the news says it every day, the numbers continue to rise and we are in a hot spot of the country.
It was our initial hope to have in-person General Membership meetings this season. With statistics being what they are, it was a unanimous approval to make this season’s General Membership meetings virtual recordings. We will not gather in-person for meetings at all this ski season, up to, and possibly including, the Spring Banquet. Instead, watch your email for a video of what would have been presented at the normal General Membership meetings. For December, we hope to have this available to you in the December newsletter.
One topic that is being discussed, and a decision will be reached soon, is that of busses for trips. It is not determined yet, although a likely possibility that all Midwest trips will be carpool/drive yourself. Please watch the video in December for more details on our decision.
In order for us to succeed as a club in this new normal, responsible action is required by each and every one of us. Regardless of your personal viewpoints on Covid-19 please respect your fellow club members. When we gather, remember to practice social distancing, wear your mask if you are able, and stay home if you’re feeling ill or not comfortable with the setting.
