NJSC November / December 2011 report

22 Dec

 NJSC Monthly Report

meeting date: December 12, 2011
next meeting: January 09, 2012

Rep: Chris Budd –

Here is a truly inspiring story that is happening right in Craigmeur’s neighborhood:

If you attended the 2011 Jamboree, you may have met Staci Mannella.  Staci is a partially-sighted alpine skier who lives in Randolph, NJ and she is working towards qualifying as a team member of the US Para-Olympics Alpine Ski Team for the 2014 Winter Olympic in Sochi Russia.  Read more about Staci here Staci Mannella   and learn how to donate & help her reach her goal of attending the 2014 Para-Olympics here.   Staci Mannella donations

We are all familiar with the inconveniences caused by Hurricane Irene back in September.  Unfortunately many of our Vermont hosts suffered severe devastation to their homes and businesses and many are still working to recover.  Money spent by our club members while visiting Vermont go a long way towards helping the recovery.   Not everyone impacted in Vermont directly benefits from our dollars spent there.  To provide help to those in Vermont who still need it, NJSC has created a fund to collect money & provide direct aid to those still in need.  Please see the attached flyer.  Skiers & Boarders CARE

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 Guidebook has been published and our allotment is gone !  I will try to secure more at the January 2012 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.
