Celebrating nearly 80 Years of Skiing and Lifelong Friendships

October 30, 2018      Vol. XII, #3 


IF YOU MISSED THE FALL WORK BEE, DON’T DESPAIR.  A Second Fall Work Bee has been scheduled just for slackers. There’s still time to redeem yourself AND get Work Bee Credit.  No need to take that walk-of-shame through the clubhouse, up to the Stag’s Head Lounge and buy that round of drinks.  No one needs to know.  This Second Work Bee has been arranged to get the dining room back in order following the extensive work accomplished over the summer, and to finish cleaning up the McKenzie Cross Country Trail.  Help is still needed to remove fallen trees and limbs along the trail.  


Work on the dining room will take place this Saturday morning at 8:30 A.M.  Norma will be leading the charge.  


The next day, Sunday, Waddy will be in charge of the chain gang working on the Meadow loop, at 1 P.M. in the afternoon.  If someone had a four wheeler to carry equipment it would be greatly appreciated. You just might be rewarded with both methyl and ethyl alcohol for your efforts.  Bring work gloves, pruning saw, and a chainsaw.  Everyone is welcome to join … that way the slackers won’t be singled out.  In the interest of full disclosure, there won’t be any lunch. 



A BOOK CLUB AT THE SKI CLUB. Amongst all our avid skiers are many avid readers.  Some are testing the waters (or snow, if we had any) to see if there’s interest in starting a Book Club.  Here’s the plan:

Who: All members (guys and gals) and their non-member friends.  Knowing how to read is a prerequisite. 

Where: Stag’s Head Lounge. 

When: These dates are proposed as many ski the morning and finish up around noon.

Friday afternoon, December 14that 12:30 P.M.

Friday afternoon, January 11that 12:30 P.M.

Friday afternoon, February 15that 12:30 P.M.

Friday afternoon, March 15that 12:30 P.M.

Format: First: Open the bar!  Then the host will lead a discussion of the book, including information about the author.

A list of books and hosts will be posted on the bulletin board in the downstairs hallway.

Robin Pottoff has volunteered to get the ‘pages turning’ by choosing the first book and offered to lead the discussion. Robin chose, “The Sisterhood,” by Helen Bryan.  Plan to join Robin on December 14th to open the bar, talk about the book, and help choose the next book.  Robin’s contact information: (734) 645-4726.
