Rep: Chris Budd – skijcb (at) hotmail.com
Welcome Back Craigmeur members – veterans and rookies alike. Let’s hope for another great winter weather season similar or better than last year.
I am looking for a member or three to apprentice with me as NJSSC rep. Being a NJSSC rep entails attending the NJSSC monthly meeting (2nd Mondays Sept thru May), learning the voucher order / distribution system and posting info about NJSSC events & offers on the Craigmeur web site as info becomes available. Interested members please contact via email – skijcb (at) hotmail.com. Thanks !
Guidebook publication will be completed in October and you can get your NJSSC Guidebook copy at the NJSSC Expo (Jamboree), Friday 06 November 2015 at The Hanover Marriott. I will bring copies of the guidebook to regular club meetings beginning in November 2015.
Our club listing page has also been up-dated to reflect the most current contact information. Please take a look and advise if any changes need to be made.
When patronizing retailers / resorts / restaurants in ski country or anywhere else, remember to show your Club membership card with the NJSSC member sticker to inquire about discounts and deals. Also check the new NJSSC web site for additional point of sale discounts under the “Membership Direct” heading.
Points of interest this month:

NJSSC Expo (Jamboree) – Friday 06 November 2015 at the Hanover Marriott, Route 10 East. Exhibits will run from 7pm – 10pm, dance party & social mixer will run from 9pm – closing (midnight-ish). Admission & parking are free. There is an Irish pub on premises to purchase a meal if you are hungry or a beverage if you are thirsty.
NJSSC membership stickers for the 2015-2016 season have been delivered to Craigmeur’s membership chairperson and will be placed on the back of your Craigmeur membership card when you renew your dues. Show this sticker to retailers / resorts / restaurants in ski country or anywhere else you patronize to let them know you are a member of NJSSC and would like to enjoy any discounts they offer to NJSSC members.
Take quick look at the 2015 NJSSC mid-summer post and you will find info about three (3) NJSSC sponsored trips for the 2015-2016 season.
