The Sly Fox Ski Club was founded in 1967. We are a year-round ski, snowboarding and social club for active adults.
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.
I want to thank Deb Bramschreiber for her dedication and endless hours she has given the Club the last two years as President. We are now in compliance with the various Federal and State agencies as a non-profit organization…and this endeaver was led by Deb.
As we move forward, the Board of Directors and volunteer committee chairs have been meeting already. Any member is welcomed to attend board meetings. The next board meeting is June 5th, beguinning at 6:30 pm at The Bar. The volunteer committee chairs include the following people:
Newsletter Editor: Sandy McMonagle
Trip Chair: Sam Fontaine
Marketing Chair: Deb Matz
Membership Chair: Jim McMonagle
Social Chair: Lynn Sommers
At the banquet, I shared my goal for the year…to get everyone involved in ‘your club’. A focus this year is to have committe chairs involve you on their committees. The Chairs will get the activities organized and you can help with the execution of the planned activities. Every little thing will be greatly appreciated!
A major focus of the Club is offering a variety of exciting and affordable ski trips for all the members. By joining forces with the Green Bay Gelandesprung Ski Club, we will have a large list of ski trips throughout the Midwest and the Western part of the United States (we had our abroad trip last year to France). Seven members of the Club attended the CMSC meeting in Chicago on May 18th and we should have the list of trips set soon. A way for you to be involved with this committee is being a trip leader. Sam, the Trip Chair, sets everything up…all you need to do is carry out the plan. I have been a trip leader on a variety of trips and it is not har. You can start out with a weekend trip or if you feel adventurous…try a Western trip.
The Newsletter is another way we would like to get more members involved. Sandy, the newsletter editor is looking for Field Editors. If you would like to contribute an article on a variety of topics of if you like writing…please don’t hesitate to offer. I know we have talented members in this club. In the next newsletter, I will share other ways you can be a part of our other committees.
During June we have a great activity plannes…a Timber Rattlers game and tailgate. Check out the newsletter for the information. We were able to secure great seats behind homeplate.
Finally, please have a great summer…but remember to keep those ski legs in shape.
