Sly Fox Ski & Snowboard Club President

Fontaine of Knowledge

Well, I’m back.  I never really left, but I’ve got a new hat.  We’ve never had a year with three Presidents, but there is a first time for everything.

On Friday, November 14, we had an open house at Hergert’ Sport Shop in Oshkosh.  Snacks and refreshments were provided by Hergert’s.  Hergert’s is introducing their new name, “Latitude North Sports”.  Mark Spanbauer of Latitude North sowed off this season’s skiing and snowboarding products.  Interesting, while he will be doing quite a bit of internet selling, the best prices are always available at the store.  This is because of the sales agreements with the equipment suppliers can limit price reductions advertised on the net.  Thanks to Mark and Tom Sitter for setting this up.

I look out my window, and I see snow on the ground.  That means the ski season is almost here.  We have already closed registration for our trip to Davos, Switzerland and Venice, Italy.  Our Big Snow trip, Jan. 9 to 11, has 35 people already signed up.  We have room for 15 more, so don’t wait much longer.  Deb Mossong will be leading this trip.  The Marquette Mountain trip, Feb. 13 to 15 has openings.  Finally, our Banff, Canada trip, March 19 to 23 has 33 people signed up, so there are still opportunities for a big mountain skiing yet this season.

Finally, our next event is the Annual Sly Fox Christmas Party at the Red Ox in Appleton on December 17.  Cost is $20 plus your gift ($10 maximum) for the optional gift exchange.  See the ad* in this month’s Fox Tales.  Also, we will be collection nonperishable food items which will be  donated to the local food pantry.  I hope to see you all there!
