President's message for January 2018

Julie’s Jive January

Happy New Year!!  The preparations and planning for our week at Sun Peaks is coming together nicely—thanks to Tom Piette, our trip leader and Ron Quick, the assistant trip leader.  It is snowing at Sun Peaks; their weather forecast indicates:  An upper low currently off the Washington coast will move into the North Cascades by this afternoon.  I love traveling to new places !!  There is snow in the forecast a week before we arrive almost every day !  Today, the following trials have been groomed—it looks like a great selection.

We still have seats available on our weekend trip to Mont Ripley/Mount Bohemia in February.  Mont Ripley has 6 green runs, 7 blue runs, 10 black diamonds and 2 double blacks—a little something for everyone.   The town of Houghton is a quaint little place with lots of activity since it is the home of Michigan Tech.  Sign up soon !!

Parking will now be available for all of our trips in 2 places. The Bar in Appleton and at The Woods in Green Bay (where we hold our Banquets and Board meetings).

We are in need of a trip leader for our Mont Ripley/Mount Bohemia mid-west trip. If you are interested, take a look at the website, Gelandesprung. org, under Member Resources. There is an updated comprehensive Trip Leader Guide that gives a great overview of what is involved. Please contact me at, or any other Board member if you are interested. As the trip leader, you will receive 50% off the price of the trip.

We will need people to fill the positions of VP, Treasurer and Marketer in April at the Spring Banquet.  If you are interested in any of these positions, please talk with Rita Delveaux, Jeanine Bosdech or Mary Halloin respectively, for more information.  

Our next Board meeting will be held on January 23rd, 2018 at The Woods at 6pm, followed by our Sun Peaks Pre-trip meeting at 7pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend the Board meeting. The Woods has a great menu that many of us partake of while attending the meeting.
