Celebrating 80 Years of Skiing and Lifelong Friendships

February 4, 2020      Vol. XIII, #13

 

Family Fun Day was a hit with young and old alike.  The Giggle Slalom gave those young whipper snappers a taste of what's to come in running the gates.  Those attending the bonfire rolled a frosty snowperson and managed to toast s'mores without getting to close to the propane tank.  Someday we ought to move that darn tank.  

 

Inside this issue:

4.  HERE'S YOUR CHANCE to REVIEW the PROPOSED BY-LAWS. Just over five years ago the Board of the CSC embarked on a journey to conduct a complete review of the club's Constitution and By-Laws.  This was undertaken for the first time in over 30 years.  It was time, change has happened over the years - family structure, legal liability, insurance requirements, electronic communication, to name a few.  And with that, a lot of suggestions, ideas, discussions, and debate. 

 

Check out the proposed By-Laws and the current version of the By-laws at www.caberfaeskiclub.org  On the menu bar, across the top of the page, click on By-Laws to select either "Old By-Laws" or "New By-Laws"  The new By-Laws will be presented at the CSC Annual Meeting on February 29, 2020. 

 

Want to talk about it?  Join members of the Board and By-Law Committee members at 1 PM, Sunday, February 9 or 16, 2020 in the board room, located at the top of the stairs in the Round Room.
