Craigmeur Ski Club

ClamBake 2011 – Photos

18 Sep

A full house once again of members, family and friends came out to enjoy the sun, food and fun. Weather could not have been better for the Club’s biggest party of the year. The second annual running of the food contest resulted in a variety of signature dishes in addition to dozens of clams, kegs of beverages, burgers, dogs, ribs, steak sandwiches, countless ears of corn. Congratulations go out to the winners: for non-deserts, the runner-up Ken Fox and 1st Place Glenn DeSantis; for deserts, the runner-up Diane Bogert and 1st place Ashley Kowzun. Food was simply awesome – “Well Done!” to all that contributed.

A party of this size does not just happen – many members arrive early and stay late to set-up, cook, and clean-up – efforts greatly appreciated.  Special thanks go out to the few that worked tirelessly for weeks to make it all happen – Bob, Glenn, Christine, Roy and Amy.

See you all next year….

meeting date: September 12, 2011

Rep: Chris Budd –

The days are getting shorter, the nights are becoming (much) cooler, that can only mean ski season is quickly approaching. Welcome Back to the 2011-2012 NJSC / Craigmeur ski season.

If you are interested in learning more about NJSC, are curious as to how it functions, or you would like to volunteer some time, please seek me out at any regular club meeting & I will be happy to discuss it with you. Ken Fox has volunteered to assist me with NJSC administrative and voucher functions as his time permits. Everyone else is also welcome to help out.

NJSC expects the Guidebook publication will be completed in October. You will be able to get your NJSC Guidebook copy at the NJSC Jamboree, November 04, 2011 at The Hanover Marriott. I will also have copies of the guidebook after the November NJSC meeting.

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.

NJSC membership stickers for the 2011-2012 season have been delivered to Craigmeur’s membership chair and will be placed on the back of your Craigmeur membership card when you renew your dues. Show this sticker to retailers / resorts / restuarants in ski country or anywhere else you patronize to let them know you are a member of NJSC and would like to enjoy any discounts they offer to NJSC members.

When patronizing retailers / resorts / restuarants in ski country or anywhere else, remember to show your Club membership card with the NJSC member sticker to inquire about discounts and deals. Also check the new NJSC web site for additional point of sale discounts under the “Membership Direct” heading.

Be sure to visit the NJSC web site often – – for news / discounts / events.
