Canoe Raft Trip – July 29, 2006

30 Jul

The Canoe/Raft trip was a resounding success. We were almost 50 people strong! There was an ample amount of canoes and rafts for everyone. Better yet, we were blessed with beautiful weather. Some people sun bathed on their raft while meandering down the water. Other people enjoyed the swimming or participated in water fights. You could not miss Roy Spierer when he sounded of his foghorn while Chuck Guider and Larry Ticotin showed their lack of boating skills by getting their wives dunked into the water. Best of all everybody had fun because they were with friends.

Everybody enjoyed the ride down the Delaware River’s beautiful scenery. During our journey Hans Winkler pointed out a Bald Eagle that was flying above us. A Beaver was also spotted along a riverbank. In addition Bob Quinn’s children found large live clams in the water. Perhaps that was an excellent prelude for the upcoming Clam Bake event.

The most outstanding part of the event was the barbeque that followed our river journey. Our club Members Olivier R. Monod, President of Campus Foods Service, and Diane L. Bogert, President of, Diamon Catering, out did themselves. Everybody was overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of food they supplied. Oliver’s chicken and hanger steaks was an instant success with everybody. People could not get enough of the hanger steaks. Amazingly there was so much food left over.

Please share your experience if you were at this event by adding a comment to this post.

Club Meeting – YOUR HELP IS NEEDED. July 19, 2006

14 Jul

To All Craigmeur Ski Club members:

    The club has obtained a great opportunity to be the host of a movie premier for Meathead Films. Meathead Films is a film production group based in Burlington Vt. that produces exciting extreme skiing films all filmed on the mountains that we ski on. These films are sold on dvd in various ski shops all over the country. They have offered us the chance to be a site for the premier of their latest film “Snow Gods” to arrive this fall. This monumental task of showing their film will require many hands to assist in this project. The date of the film premier is November 4th 2006. This premier will benefit the club in many ways. The club will be holding a special meeting to recruit help for this project on Wed July 19th following our regular meeting at The Exchange. The regular meeting is at 8pm sharp with the special meeting to begin between 8:45 and 9pm. Please make every effort to come and see the exposure that this event will bring to the club. A task of this size cannot be taken on successfully with just a handful of people. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED.

Here is more information about this upcoming event:

Also, time is running out, please get your resevations in for the annual clambake at Lake Shawnee on August 12th. You can also pay and make your reservation at any meeting.
