President's Message 

One more day to go before we take off for the Big Sky
Country, let's all pray for more snow!
Both of my bags are packed, I'm ready to go, could
hardly wait for tomorrow, I'm leaving on a jet plane,
(does that remind you of a song)? Anyhow, Paul & I are
planning to be @ the airport around 9PM, so for Sam,
Guy & Dennis, no worries, I have your travel documents.
Regarding February general meeting, there is a change
of venue. Yum Yum Tree can not accommodate us on the
3rd, so we're combining the Post Ski Party with the
general meeting at Kathy Mulledy's house on 12FEB,
starting @ 5:30PM.
For those members who are not going this time, there's
always next year, or maybe Lake Tahoe in late February, and we hope to see you @ Kathy's on the 12th.
