1.  ATTENTION, ALL FAIR WEATHER PADDLERS.  OK!  OK!  So it got cancelled a second time.  So what?  The good news is all the rain last Sunday will give the river a little burst of energy to speed us along in October … maybe.  Besides, the fall colors have a ways to go to elicit the anticipated “OOOOs” and “AHHHHs!” Stay tuned and we’ll see if we can this idea to float on top of the water instead of under the rain.

 

2.  THE EAGERLY ANTICIPATED FALL WORK BEE is coming Saturday, October 5, 2019 beginning at 8:30 a.m. Hey!  That’s Paul Waug’s idea.  You want to tell him how you feel?  Send him a note: waugelect@aol.com  He might even ask if you have a power washer or if you’ve got skills.  Work Bee first, golf and potluck later.

 

3.  THE GOLF OUTING is fast approaching (Saturday October 5), so we wanted to put one last call out there for anyone interested in participating.  The first tee time is at 2 P.M. and all the groups will go off in order from there.  If you'd like to join us, and haven't already let Shane know, please email him at shanedemek@gmail.com so he knows you're coming. 

 

 4.  POTLUCK!  ALSO! Following the golf outing there will be a potluck in the Stags Head Lounge in the evening.  Any and all are welcome (whether you're golfing or not), just bring a dish to share and come enjoy a beautiful fall evening, catching up with all the people you haven't seen since March. The first golfers will probably start trickling into the clubhouse around 4P.M., but anyone who wants to join can feel free to show up earlier. There will be beer, wine, and liquor for sale at the bar. 

 

 5.  CALL FOR BARTENDERS!  The Stags Head Lounge runs on volunteer power.  Bartending is a great way to get your work bee credit as well as meet other members.  If you’d like to learn how to bartend, stay tuned for a training in December.  This year there will be no drop-in bartending.  Bar hours will be posted in the eNewsletter each week based on volunteers who have signed up for the available shifts.  No volunteers by eNewsletter date (Tuesday evening) publication means no bar for that date.  Help fill out these shifts by clicking the link below or sign up on the printed sheet in the Stags Head Lounge that will be updated periodically.  Priority shifts are indicated in red.    https://tinyurl.com/y6ysecv9

 

 6.  DUES R' DUE  If you've saved up enough beer bottles and cans to pay your dues, please do so, post haste.  Here's the deal.  The good people who have been waiting so patiently for upwards of eight or nine years to join the club, would like to get the most out of their season.  Members who are choosing to leave the club family can not only help new members get the most out of their winter, but can lighten a heavy burden from Norma's shoulders.   Her single most difficult task is sorting out who of us is returning and who is not.  Calling (hounding) those who have not yet paid to find out their plans.  If members leave, there's another struggle of dealing with old contact information of people on the Wait List.  

 

7.  MICHIGAN ROAD TRIPS.  Our Web Master, Jim Neff recently discovered some YouTube links to segments WNEM (Channel 5 - Bay City, Saginaw, Flint) recently aired about the Cadillac area. They were featured on their program, "Michigan Road Trips."  Jim also saved them to the club website.

8.   A LITTLE REMINDER ON HOW THE WORK BEE CREDIT WORKS.  If you attend a Work Bee before the season begins, or after the season ends, you will receive a credit on you club dues for the next year.  In other words, if you attended the fall 2018 Work Bee, or the Spring 2019 Work Bee, you will receive a credit on your 2019/20 Ski Club Dues.
