Time to Signup for Whistler/Blackcomb Jan 31- Feb 7

    If you are one of the club members who hasn't decided for sure if you are going on the FWSA Ski Week to Whistler Blackcomb,  now is the time to make that final decision.  You need to contact Debbie ASAP and let her know and get a deposit in and begin payments.  The quicker you join the rest of us who are going, the better the chances of getting the best condo or hotel room.

     What a better way to spend a winter vacation week than at the biggest resort in North America.  Since our last visit the year before the Olympics, there have been some on slope upgrades.  Gondolas and high speed lifts dot the two mountains, and where else can you ski one run if you want with a mile vertical from top to bottom.  Let's get a large group from our club going on the trip.


     Our own Debbie Stewart has done it again, winning a top award at this past summer's FWSA annual convention in Bend, Oregon.  She won the Elizabeth "Schatzi" Award that goes for a "decisive contribution to skiing."   George Stewart was the Sierra Council nomination for the Man of the Year.

     Debbie is no stranger for top awards.  In 2011 she was named the FWSA's Woman of the Year.  Club members know that Debbie has served in a number of different capacities over the years at both the Association and Council levels. She is also currently our club vice president.

Next Meeting:

The annual beginning of the ski season potluck will be held Thursday, October 16 at 6 p.m. at the home of Mike and Lupe Bowers.  There will also be a short first club meeting of the year.
