NJSSC 2018 trip info

Hello Craigmeur Ski Club –

Here it is September already, summer seems to have passed in the blink of an eye, kids are back in school, cooler temperatures & shorter days are upon us.

On Thursday 8/30 I saw weather report from Wildcat Mountain – 47 degrees for a high with possibility of flurries. The autumnal equinox is not far off – 22 September 2017 –  then on the Winter Solstice 21 December 2017

It’s time to get out your alpine / nordic / winter sports gear and determine what needs to be repaired or replaced and what remains useful for another season. Did someone say Craigmeur Ski Club member’s garage sale ?

I am pleased to annouce Patrick Brennan has volunteered to take over as Craigmeur’s NJSSC representative for 2017-2018 season.  Patrick will be attending the monthly NJSSC meetings and handling the ski voucher program.  Patrick has requested anyone interested in learning more about NJSSC or helping out to please contact him at any regular club meeting.  I will also be available to provide NJSSC information to interested club members.  Welcome aboard Patrick !
