Posted by skijcb on October 1st, 2015

NJSC Monthly Report

meeting date: September 14, 2015
next meeting: October 12, 2015

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:

Chasing Shadows – Warren Miller’s 66th annual snow sports film showing Thursday 05 November 2015 at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown.  Here is the link to the NJSSC web site with a short trailer and more info:  http://www.njssc.org/

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.


Kids Ski Free programs – follow the link to the flyer – offers vary for fourth thru seventh graders. Each state has unique requirements. Follow the links in each flyer for add’l info.  KIDS SKI FOR FREE PROGRAMS

NJSSC Discount Vouchers will be available thru the NJSSC club rep at any Craigmeur meeting. Hopefully pricing will be completed and sign ups can begin in late October 2015 with payments taken at time of order.

2015-2016 VOUCHER PURCHASE POLICY – if your payment has not been received the night of the cut off, your voucher order WILL NOT be submitted for purchase.  No late payments will be accepted this season, NO EXCEPTIONS.

PRELIMINARY 2015-2016 voucher sign-up cutoff / voucher delivery dates as follows:

cut-off 28 October 2015  – delivery 11 November 2015
