The President's Corner - April, 2024

Greetings  fellow ski clubbers.

Well,….here we are, nearing the end of another winter ski season. Hope many of you were able to get out and enjoy a few runs at either one of the local ski areas, or travel a little farther up north, or made a trip out west. As I write this, the Winter Park train trip is just one week from taking place. Thanks to Bill Cole who has done a great job this year in getting things organized for this always fun out west trip. 

I also want to give a BIG THANK YOU, and I’m sure you do as well, to the trip chairs this year who had to work thru all the details to bring these trips to our members. Our Board meetings are always filled with great information on what is happening at ski resorts as we review trips monthly. External VP for the Club, Michele Mollard, has been quite busy. There has been much interest in the 2025 trip that the Club is planning to Big Sky, Montana for the week of February 8th, 2025. Kathy Rubino and Cheryl Dedoes will be the trip chairs for this amazing adventure.

Big Sky, Montana, 2025 - The board had a long discussion about early “interested” signups already occurring and would like to clarify how to get on board and “confirm-reserve” your spot. Trip chairs already have increased the number of pillows (beds) that will be available. (1.) You must be a BCSC member at time of signup, or renew your membership when signing up. (2.) A deposit of $200.00 will be required. If the Club does not have these two things from you, you are not on the trip. Please be aware that final pricing has not been determined due to airline pricing, but the Club has already reserved and made down payments for lodging. Early reservations get us the best pricing for our member

Ikon passes for 2025 are now on sale. Ski.com is our sales agent and can help with a pass if you are going on this trip or others. Board member, Chery Dedoes has more info, give her a call if you are interested in saving money.

OKAY,…now for a few items of interest as it relates to Club elections and the end of season raffle of $150.00 for overnight trip attendees, will be at the April General meeting. The annual $150.00 BCSC trip raffle, for those members who attended either this past year’s trips to Boyne Highlands, Nubs Nob, Telluride, CO, or Winter Park, will be eligible to win. Please plan attending the General Membership meeting on April 9th, when the drawing will be held. You might be the lucky winner! You must be present to win.

Those people who have volunteered to be on the Board, along with those who have specific additional tasks, we will have membership voting to be held at the April General Membership Meeting. If you would like to step off the sidelines, and onto the playing field, consider giving me a call and volunteer to be on the ski club board. New ideas are important to many organizations. Maybe you can help! Please consider.

Please be sure to sign up for the off-season fun and adventurous summer activities that are being planned. Specifics are detailed elsewhere in this newsletter. Early signups are important to making reservations.

Well folks, That’s it for this month. I’m looking forward to hearing on how much fun our Winter Park attendees had!

Ski Ya,

Gerry Tillmann – BCSC President
