Hello and Happy New Year fellow Gelandesprungers!
It is Monday after Christmas, and I am looking out the window at some fresh snow which is the perfect motivation to write this column. I hope you all had a great Holiday and were able to celebrate your family traditions.
I know many of you are setting out on your New Year's Resolutions and so is the club. I'd like to share a few things with you today. For starters, we are making strides towards utilizing our website and systems focusing on efficiencies, reducing errors, and removing redundancies. This is so that we can provide you, our member, access to the things you need faster and easier. Ultimately, we are working towards an online registration and payment system, however, we are not at that point yet. We are doing this in stages, which will start with the newsletter distribution.
Historically we have been sending you a link to a PDF file which we have done this month. Beginning in February, you will continue to receive an email with a link to the newsletter which will instead direct you to our newsletter page (https://www.gelandesprung.org/news/) where you will see the same information as what would be provided in the PDF. We realize this is a change and welcome constructive criticism in February on the new process. Please also watch each month for additional tips on the things you can do with the new website.
An additional New Year’s Resolution that was made is to eliminate providing alcohol on our bus trips. Members are allowed to consume alcohol on the bus by bringing it on board themselves. Please plan to keep these items under your seat or in the overhead bin to avoid tripping hazards. Please refrain from glass or other fragile containers.
We are seeing low registrations for our day trips where it is important to fill the seats and ask that you get your sign ups in today.
In the meantime, get your skis shined up and grab a stick of Juicy Fruit as the taste is going to move ya!
Ski you soon!
