Welcome Back Craigmeur members – the leaf colors are peaking in Vermont, get up there to enjoy the brilliance of the autumnal color changes.
NEW THIS MONTH –
National Winter Activity Center (NWAC) – Hidden Valley Ski area has passed into history with their closing a few seasons ago. Luckily, the facility has not gone to waste. It has been resurrected as National Winter Activity Center, providing under-privileged and inner city children with the opportunity to experience outside winter sports. YOU can make a difference by joining their team. There will be an Open House at the National Winter Activity Center on 10/21. See the attached flyer and read more info on their website – 2016-natl-winter-activity-center http://www.winter4kids.org
NJSSC Expo (Jamboree) – Friday 28 October 2016 at the Hanover Marriott, Route 10 East. Exhibits will run from 7pm – 10pm. Admission & parking are free.

I am looking for one or two members to alternate as apprentices with me as NJSSC rep. Being a NJSSC rep entails attending the NJSSC monthly meeting (2nd Monday 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 !
NJSSC Guidebook printing will be completed in October and you can get your NJSSC Guidebook copy at the NJSSC Expo (Jamboree), Friday 28 October 2016 at The Hanover Marriott. I will bring copies of the guidebook to regular club meetings beginning in November 2016.
