CABERFAE SKI CLUB DUES RENEWAL

Invoices will be sent out on Saturday, August 17. If you have not received in it the next few weeks to notify Norma Roelfsema (roelfsen@gmail.com).

 

FIRST EVER SKI CLUB PADDLE TRIP

CALLING ALL SKI CLUB PADDLERS who may be interested in paddling down a creek with a paddle.   Sam Hogg is "just throwing it out there" to see if there's any interest in a ski club paddle trip.  To help you make up your mind, some of the thinking has been done for you ... like the date and where and what.   Sunday, September 22nd.  Rendezvous point will be Peterson Bridge (south of M55 on M32) at 12:30 PM.  Just listen for Lauren playing the music from Deliverance an a banjo ... poorly.  That's where we'll catch a shuttle bus to take 'paddle people' up the river for a 2-3 hour paddle back down to Peterson Bridge.  Like 18 or 24 hours later ... or dinner time (which ever comes first) wet and dry paddlers will rally for dinner at Coyote Crossings (non-paddlers welcome!).  Cost will vary from $10-25 per person based on what equipment you prefer. (lots more if you'd like a four-wheeler).  Please respond to hogg.sam@gmail.com with the following information: Number attending? Providing my own equipment?

 

Would like to rent a kayak (1 person, ~$25) or canoe (2 person, ~$40)?

 

FRESH LOOK AT OUR GOLF OUTING 

Calling all golfers!  It's about that time for the leaves to start changing, and perhaps more significantly, for the Annual Caberfae Ski Club Golf Outing. The date is Saturday October 5 (after fall work-bee) at 2 P.M.  We'd like to get back to doing a more traditional style golf outing with a shotgun start, longest drive, closest to pin, etc., but in order to do so we need to have enough interest.  If you would like to participate, please contact Shane Demek (shanedemek@gmail.com) ASAP so we can try and get a gauge on how many people we will have.  More details will follow, and we hope to see you there!

 

GET READY TO RIDE THE "POLAR COASTER"

The Farmers’ Almanac, a publication famous for making North American weather predictions, is forecasting a “polar coaster” winter, which is expected to be full of more ups and downs, twists and turns than a Michigan’s Adventure thrill ride. Read the article in the Detroit Free Press


Caberfae Ski Club lost a long time friend this week with the passing of John Kelly.  John had been a fixture around the clubhouse he helped build for over 60 years.  In the early 1950's John was part of the work crew clearing the land, laying the block and setting the log trusses above the iconic round room, creating a permanent home for those of us who followed.  Thank you, John.

CLASSIC CABERFAE MATCHBOOKS

Cadillac memorabilia collector Rich Edwards shared these images of classic Caberfae matchbooks. Pictured here are the fronts and backs. The one on the right might be of particular interest because of the resort's one-digit phone number -- Hoxeyville #3.
