Piette's Post

Isn’t it great to be enjoying some great fall weather as we enjoy paddling, cycling, golf, hiking and other outdoor activities!?  Yet, this time of year always gets us thinking about skiing and boarding down those mountain trails in the coming winter.  I couldn’t be more excited about the skiing experience we will have at Big White in January.  We’ll have the great snow and good weather of the Okanagan region of Canada to enjoy for a week.  If you have not signed up yet, we have one spot remaining that includes Friday to Friday transportation.  We also have limited hotel and condo availability for a few people willing to provide their own transportation.  You can pick a nice hotel or a luxury condo for your experience.  Both are true ski in/ski out and they are close enough to easily visit friends at either location. 

The Fall Banquet is Friday, October 6.  Sign up today and join us at the Fall banquet on Friday, October 6.  We will have more news about Big White including a review of some of the amenities.  Scot Wederquist will also share information with you about the trip to Searchmont March 22 to March 24.  Searchmont has been a favorite destination for us for years.  The bus is usually full for that trip because of the great terrain and the good lake effect snow that the area receives.  The new owner has made significant improvements to the lift systems to enhance our skiing experience. 

We received a lot of feedback during our spring banquet regarding a number of topics.  One question that we asked you was if you would prefer to have different food at The Woods during future banquets.  The survey results strongly supported changing the food.  Although we will have our typical menu at this banquet, we intend to make the change that you prefer at the Spring Banquet.  We will ask you to complete a short survey at this Fall Banquet to enable us to know what you would like to have based upon the choices available and the costs for the options.  So, show up and share your thoughts with your elected Board regarding our banquet food and other operations of your ski club.

Finally, we had three great bike rides this summer.  Thank you to Frank & Shelly Wickham, Rita & Gary Delveaux, and Ron & Jackie Quick for your efforts to provide great bike rides and camaraderie to our members every year. 

I hope to see you October 6,

Tom Piette
