Also, bring your ski boots if you would like a free consultation.

Our club race is tentatively scheduled for March 10th.

Our social calendar is busting at the seams. October 20th is the Jamboree at the Westin Inn in Morristown (7-11pm). Roy is running a booth for the club (he needs volunteers to help man in). The party includes a silent auction & dancing. Please come! October 25th is Membership Night for the club at the Exchange. Oh dear, this is another party. It includes refreshments, a slide show, door prizes, and more. And we’ve been invited to High Life Ski Club’s Halloween party at their lodge scheduled for October 28-29th. They said something about a graveyard??? Our November calendar includes guest speaker Bill Thistle at our regular club meeting on November 1st, our BIG MOVIE NIGHT on November 4th (see this website for more info), and all our regular meetings every Wednesday at the Exchange. December is busy and includes Open House at the lodge December 1-3 and our Holiday Party at the Exchange on December 13th.

Ski instruction for members is still being offered by Karen Blaine.

Maryanne is still offering discount season passes and mult-trip passes to Mountain Creek at group rates.

Chris’s report from ski council was packed with information. Council will be having a booth at Giants Stadium ski sale on December 4-9, Windham Tune-Up day will be December 2nd, and Ski Night at Hidden Valley will be January 18th. There is still availability on St. Anton and Panorama ski trips. Orders for the first round of ski vouchers are due by November 1st.

Three potential new members were greeted and one new member was voted in. Welcome Charles.

Under old business, Roy announced that there are five openings for the Vail Trip on February 24-March 3rd. 27 people are currently signed up to go. He reminded everyone that the BIG MOVIE NIGHT event, Snow Gods, is still selling tickets (albeit slowly) and that club member Bill Jones will be writing about Meathead Productions in his magazine, Snow East. Roy also announced that Special Olympics day at Mountain Creek will be January 29-30th and that he will again be participating. He invited others to do the same. There was a short discussion about which channel to use on walkie talkies (whether to change it). Another discussion was prompted by Christine on how our club could participate in Toys for Tots.

The next meeting will be on October 18th at 8:00 at The Exchange.

Lodge Opening

05 Oct

The following is a message from Paul Kattermann:

Please announce at the meeting tonight that the lodge will be open from Friday Oct. 6 evening through the morning of Monday Oct. 9 2006. There is a huge ski swap at the Snowshed Lodge. Killington also has a Beer fest at the K1 Lodge. The foliage is probably past peak but is still great. As far as I know, golfing is still open.

Please contact Paul Kattermann if you have any questions.

Bowling Event – September 30, 2006

02 Oct

We never envisioned such a great turn out! What started out as a small event with only 6 lanes, quickly turned into one of our top events for the preseason. Our turn out swelled to 48 people covering 12 lanes of Rockaway Bowling. Two hours of unlimited bowling along with pizza and soda brought our club together once again for a night of socializing and having some fun. We learned some people hadn’t bowled in 20-30 years!

Top scores for the night went to Hans Winkler, who scored a whopping 213, and to Charlie Dolce, a friend of member Jared Ticotin, with a score of 207.

Check out our photos!

Don’t miss the movie premiere of “Snow Gods” on November 4, 2006 at the Lake Forest Yacht Club in Lake Hopatcong. Click here for more information and to purchase your tickets on-line.
