Fontaine of Knowledge

The lion’s share of the ski season is complete and it is only the end of February. Our Winter Park trip is our last trip of the season and with 44 going, it is buttoned up. Of course, Gelandesprung has a week at Steamboat coming up on March 4, and their Lutsen Trip on March 17 to 19 still has openings.

On February 1, we returned from Madonna di Campiglio and Amsterdam. See the article elsewhere in this newsletter for my detailed report on Madonna. Amsterdam will have to wait until April.

We also completed our Big Snow II trip on February 12. The report for that trip is included in this newsletter as well.

So now it is time to plan our season ending banquet! It will be held on Friday, April 21 at High Cliff Golf and Supper Club. The cost will be $15 for members and their guests. See the flyer and sign-up sheet in this newsletter.

Finally, planning for next season has to get under way. The Sly Fox Ski Club is finishing up their 50th season this year. Technically our 50th birthday is in December 2017. Nancy Smith is starting planning our birthday party for this Fall. She will need help on her committee, so step up and get involved with the celebration.

As part of the transition, we began the formal nomination process at our February 15 meeting. Nancy Smith was nominated for Secretary, Julie Buechner for Treasurer, Gary Herwig for Vice President, and Bruce Kettner for President. We will have another round of nominations at the March 1 meeting. The election of officers will take place on March 15 at our last regular meeting of the season and also the Winter Park pre-trip meeting.
