Hello every one, I hope you all had a good May Day and month of May. For
those of you unable to attend the last meeting at the YumYum we had a vote for
our next ski trip. Including eight hot line votes, the totals were: Whistler-11,
Vail -13, and Aspen/Snowmass-17. Further details follow in the newsletter.
The Ski Club board thanks all the club members for our annual installation
dinner for board members. Honey Ruppel and Michele Herbert have agreed to volunteer
their time for the good of all of us. I say three cheers for the new board members!!!
I also want express my appreciation for the current members and all the effort
they put into the club. Well, sometimes you don't know until you try. That's
how I feel about the coming meeting at Kathy Mulledy's. I very much hope we
have a good turn out and that folks become comfortable doing meetings this way.
I want to thank the Mulledy's in advance of the event. Bill and Anita Hodges
and Jeff Davis have already volunteered for future events.
Many Mahlos!!! See ya'll soon, Dave
New Look-(Also new times and locations)
for General Meetings
To generate more member participation and enjoyment, General Meetings will take
on a whole new look. EFFECTIVE JUNE they will be changed from the typical 1st
Thursday of every month at the Yum Yum Tree. Now our focus will be more of a "Social
Event" and will occur on the first Friday or Saturday of each month. The
venue will rotate from a member's home to a local restaurant. We would like to
have a "theme" to make things more interesting i.e. Wine & Cheese
tasting, game night, decadent desserts, Chili Cook off etc.
If you have any good ideas PLEASE SHARE THEM! Keep an eye on each monthly
newsletter for locations. Or call the HOTLINE at 545-SNOW.
Ski Trip 2004-UPDATE
Well folks it looks like we're "SNOWMASS" bound. Let's hope the implied
name truly represents the amount of snow we'll receive for our upcoming January
2004 trip. Dates will be departing Friday 1/23 and returning Saturday 1/31.
We have selected the last week in January as the prices do go up beginning the
first week of February.

to questions during that time
Wine Tasting at Kathy's- Saturday June 7th: 6:30pm
June starts off trying out having meeting/party at someone's home or other
chosen location/event. The first one will be held at Kathy Mulledy's. We
will have a wine-tasting party. So, bring your favorite wine disguised in a brown
paper bag. Also bring along a pupu to share. There will be plastic cups
available but I heard some of you wanted to drink from a wine glass.....so bring your own as I don't have enough to share. (Editor's note: not to mention she
would have to be insane to trust this crowd with them.)
