545-SNOW       Hawaii Ski Association - June 2004

President's Message
Aloha everyone!
Your Board of Directors has selected a resort for Ski Trip 2005 at Big Sky...The Big Horn Condos. The contract is signed and the ball is rolling so firm up your plans to be a part of it. Also, we selected South Lake Tahoe as the area for the Spring Break trip. Will publish more details as they become available.
We had a great turnout and time at the May Pau Hana at Brew Moon. More than two dozen skiers/boarders enjoyed sunset on the veranda and the associated food and drink.
The search for the General Meeting place ended at the Fort Street Bar & Grill. It is one of Goef Chu's haunts and will hopefully turn out to be a reasonable, central location for our meetings. Hope to see many of you there on June 3rd!

We are "doing" the Fourth of July at Schofield Barracks again this year. For those of you who have not attended before, this is a day full of activities and the best fireworks in town. We will reserve a site again for relaxing and barbequing and talking story. This event always draws a big crowd. So mark it on your calendars and watch for more details in the next newsletter. See you there.

Any certified scuba divers in the club, Michael Cloe is looking to put together a dive trib, but needs to know how many divers we have. If you're not certified, but always wanted to experience diving, let me know also.
