Friday, Feb. 13-15 was our Marquette Mountain Trip.  Great food on the way up and fun at the Irish Bar ended our travels on Friday.  Arriving at Marquette Mountain on Sat. we walked into a mound of racer bodies.  Some lifts were closed due to high winds.  Some decided to take the day off & enjoy the entertainment.  Sat. night we had fun in Marquette after a dip in the hot tub along with a wine & cheese party.   Sunday we were back to normal with Nastar races & lunch on the hill.  One last libation before leaving was our shot ski, impressing some college students at the mountain.  Fun was had by all.

Fontaine of Knowledge

March is here and it seems like the ski season is nearly over already, and we just got started.  We all got home safe and sound from Switzerland and Venice on February 3.  On February 13 to 15, the Marquette trip took place.  See Mark Framness’s wrap up article elsewhere in Foxtales.

On March 19 we will leave on our last trip of the season to Banff, Canada.  If you still want one more trip, Gelandesprung is going to Boyne, MI on March 6 to 8, and they still have openings.

With that, the ski season will just about be over.  Our Season Ending banquet will be at the Mariner Supper Club in Kaukauna on April 17.  See the sign-up form elsewhere in this newsletter.  I hope to see you all there.

The banquet will also be the installation of new officers for the 2015-2016 season.  As always, we are looking for people to step up and get involved with the planning and operation of our club.  Yes, there is some work and time involved, but it is work and time spent planning on how to have a good time!  So let us know if you would like to help in the fun.

Lastly, the annual CMSC Trip Seminar is coming up on May 16.  This is the premier trip planning event of the year.  There will also be Ski Club Leadership Educational Sessions from 8 am to 10 am.  The Trip Seminar is held at the Sheraton Gateway Suites by O’Hare Airport from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm.  Registration is by advance registration only and the registration fee is $20.  That includes the Seminar with a chance to visit with the major ski destination reps, tour operators, and others.  A lunch is included and a beer party afterward with a chance to win valuable prizes!  As in the past, if you wish to go you need to pay the $20 registration fee to the Sly Fox Ski Club.  If you attend, we will refund the registration fees afterward.  No other travel expenses are covered, but we’ll get together for car pooling or lodging if you want to stay in town.

Tips Up,

Sam Fontaine
