We offer sports-oriented adults the opportunity to participate in recreational activities in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
Year-round, we enjoy camaraderie in sports and social activities that mainly revolve around the outdoors.
Our club members are active adults ages 21 to 70+. Single and married, from all walks of life. Abilities range from beginners to expert skiers and snowboarders. Whatever your skiing or snowboarding ability, there are members with similar abilities and interests to accompany you on and off the hill.
Because of our group buying power and camaraderie, we’re sure you will appreciate the affordability and unique nature of our club.
This is a video shot by Jeff Theisen at our Nov. 3rd club meeting. We had Jason Schultz from Appleton WI give a very good demo on waxing your own skis.

We are lucky to be Sly Foxes in March of 2014. This month we get to celebrate Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day and ski twice out West.
Our first Western trip leaves March 1st for Winter Park, CO and we have over 60 people looking for a great time skiing. The trip is lead by Sam Fontaine (cell: 920.445.1298). Please let Sam know if you have any questions.
Our final trip of the year leaves March 29th for Aspen, CO. Again, over 60 people are heading out to 4 great ski mountains for a week of fun. Sam Fontaine is the trip leader on this trip, too.
On February 7th, 45 skiers headed out on the M & M trip to Marquette Mt, MI… lead by two fantastic and first time trip leaders: Mark Nelsen and MaryAnne Herwig. The effort they put into making this trip a blast was off the charts. We played all types of games on the bus, sang Happy Birthday to Bill Smith (who turned 85 that day), and ate and ate and drank on the way north. Everyone could not believe how fast this made the trip go by. I would also like to thank everyone that stepped up and helped in little ways: Gary Herwig, Jane Aubrey, Deb Matz, Deb Bramschreiber, Tim Parkers, and Adam Hansen. Please see the article in the March Newsletter for more details.
On the Marquette Trip we did have a member fall and take an injury. Luckily, a family member was along. This brings up the issue about having identification, insurance cards, and most importantly … the HEALTH CARE PROVIDER card. Please fill one out and carry it with you. You will find a copy of this on page 6 in our March newsletter.
It is hard to believe we have only three more meetings this ski season. That means two things… election of officers and our annual spring banquet. We will begin taking nominations for the four elected positions on the Board at the March 5th and 19th meetings. The elections will be held at the final meeting on April 9th. If anyone is interested in any of these positions, please have someone nominate you at the meetings. It is great fun, and I mean that sincerely, to be on the Board.
Our spring banquet information is also in this news letter. Please join us that evening for a great time at the Stone Cellar at Riverview Gardens in Appleton, April 25th.
That brings up the final item… summer events. Several people have been sharing ideas and we are going to share more information at the March meetings. We do need volunteers to help out with these events. Remember, non-members are
always welcomed at our Summer Events.
Take care and may the Ides of March be lookin’ down upon thee…
