                   CLUB ACTIVITY Summer/Fall/2014

Bend Ski Club did some re-organizing this past summer to get ready for the coming season.  The changes included Joe leaving the President position and becoming the Chairman of the Competition Committee to focus on Hoodoo racing and David resigning (see message below) from his officer position and from the board.  Rod Robinson has joined the board.  Tad Scharpf and John Stockham continue on the board.  Al Pierce continues as Communications Director.  Ken Robbins continues as Treasurer. 

This leaves the positions of President and Secretary open.  There are also new positions for Chairpersons/members of the Social/Meetings Committee and for the Membership/Communications Committee.  We are looking for those who might be interested in these opportunities to have fun creating fun.  Please contact Ken Robbins at with your inquiries.  

You are also invited to join the board at the next meeting to find out more, offer opinions or see how things work.  It will be at McMennamins, November 10, 6:30 PM.   Please RSVP to Ken ( so he knows whom to expect.   

Dear Members:
I’ve come to realize, after careful consideration, that I can’t go forward contributing the time, energy and thought to the Club operations that I did this last year.   Personal priorities require that I step down from the position of President and also not participate in the board at this time. 
It has been a great experience working with Ken, Larry, Joe, Tad, John and Al, members who do such a great deal to make the Club worthwhile for everyone. 
I’ll be staying involved in limited ways that support the leadership, as my time allows and as they need.  I encourage any of you that can, to join a committee to share some of the workload that makes the Club beneficial and fun for all.  It’s a lot of fun working together to make it happen. 
I appreciate all the strong positive feedback I’ve received relating to my and the others’ efforts throughout the season from so many of you.  I look forward to seeing everyone on the slopes, at next season’s Club socials and around town.


The officers and board members hope everyone enjoyed last season’s events and socials.  We’re looking forward and planning to have more of the same and more for 2014/2015. 

Hope your summer was fun & everyone is excited for the next ski season!


The Board of Directors met June 3rd for the Annual Meeting.  In preparation for looking forward to the 2014-2015 ski season and personal availability, changes have been made.  Joe Bentley is moving to the role of "Chairman of the Competition Committee" to focus on coordinating with Hoodoo.  Ken Robbins is continuing as Treasurer.  We are sad to confirm that Larry Barker is ending his involvement as a board member but he will still be a Club member and help out.  John Stockham and Tad Scharpf continue as active board members.  Rod Robinson has joined as a board member.  Al Pierce continues as our Communications Director.  

(Check the "events" and "club ski together" pages for what we've done and what's planned for this season.)

                  "CLUB SKI TOGETHER"
Join other members every Sunday, 10 AM, bottom of Pine Marten lift for our Club Ski Together in the spectacular powder, or whatever Mother Nature has provided. 

     Regular Sunday's "Club Ski Togethers"

                  Bottom of Pine Marten lift; 10 AM. 

Hoodoo got beaten up last year.  The City League racing was canceled, sorry to say.  For the first time, we had a Bend Ski Club team formed.  Next year it'll be better.  Go to the "racing- city league" page for details. 

                     How good do you have to be to enjoy club membership?  

You can be a beginner or someone happy to do a few runs on the green and blue slopes or the shredder looking for the toughest challenge of the day...steeps, backside powder and trees. You can be the person who heads for the warm lodge when the wind starts blowing and the visibility lessens or the hardcore who likes empty slopes no matter what the conditions.  But everyone can enjoy our warm and friendly social events.  

Join us at the Bend Ski Club to share the next exciting ski season on our "backyard mountain"!!  

Our social events are held between November and May.  Please check the "events calendar" page for event details, times and locations.

The Bend Ski Club is also on Facebook (Bend Ski Club).  We are a non-profit, 501c-7 organization.

We always welcome new members!  Call Ken Robbins (678-333-5767) for inquiries and information.
