President's Message
The location of this month's first gathering should be no surprise to old timers. For new members it means the Elks Club for the Snowmass kick off party. It's time to let a little fresh snow on the brain to cool you off during this Kona like weather. This is one gathering /meeting / party that's not to be missed. We always have a surprise or raffle or other freebie's for the members so don't miss out. The location and details are listed after this message just down the page in the newsletter. If you don't get any further than the varied ramblings of this message, just look to the left column for the scoop on this months activities.
Next, I'm looking for your opinion on how things are going for you and your relationship with the Ski Club.
We moved from static meetings to variable gatherings. We make greater use of e-information and phone hot-lines. Feel welcome to send your comments to my e-address of Till next time, you can catch me going down hill,
Dave B

It's not too late to join us for our upcoming Snowmass Ski Trip in January 2004. However, any vacant rooms and airline seats that we are holding have to be returned to Crestwood and United. If you have ANY interest at all and THINK you may be going, please contact Amy and we'll do our best to continue to hold space for you. For those who sign on during the last few months, we will do our best to accommodate you at the Crestwood Condos and with our current itinerary, but there are no guarantees. No worries, however, I'm sure we'll find accommodations nearby and will find a reasonable itinerary to ensure you arrive and depart with the group.
For more tips on Snowmass and Ski accessory give-a-aways, please make sure you attend our annual Ski Club Kick-off Party on Friday October 3rd at 6 pm at the Elks Club! As this is our ANNUAL Club kick-off party, all members and guests are encouraged to come!!!!

Halloween Party- Waikiki Yacht Club- FRIDAY OCTOBER 31st, 6pm
It's time to start getting creative with your new "fall look" for the upcoming Halloween party at the Waikiki Yacht Club. (Of course, some of you can come as you costume you're naturally scary enough with no additional props!!!) For those who have attended in the previous years, well, you know how much fun this party can be. And it even falls on a Friday night!

Our hosts Chris & Marilyn Harris are kind (editor's note: some might say "reckless") enough to allow us to return! The party and music are FREE!. A separate pupu buffet will have a nominal cost. Please give us an idea if you will attend so the Harris' can provide an estimated head count to the club. Please advise Amy or contact Chris & Marilyn Harris.
