CLUB ACTIVITY THIS SUMMER
Bend Ski Club is doing some re-organizing this summer to get ready for the coming season. The changes include 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, Vice 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 email@example.com 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 Crossings at the Riverhouse; 6:30 PM; Monday, August 18th. The weather has been beautiful for their outdoor riverside dining. Please email Ken so he knows whom to expect.
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
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
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 2013-2014 Ski Season in “our
backyard” is done. On a day that went
from cloudy and cold to warm and sunny in a season that started sparse and went
to plentiful, a number of Club members covered the slopes. The conditions were surprisingly good. The pond skimmers put on quite a show,
costumes and all. Then several celebrated
in that traditional Bend
way…Beer!...while the music played.
The officers and board members
hope everyone enjoyed the season’s events and socials. We’re looking forward and planning to have
more of the same and more.
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 Competion Committee" to focus on coordinating with Hoodoo. David Horn is the new President. 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.
With these changes, the position of Vice-President is open, and we would like to add two more to the board. We will be recruiting over the summer.
Sunday several of us in the "Ski Together" found awesome untracked fresh powder!!! When it's not too sticky, it's still great skiing. Plan to "Ski Together" on 5/18 and 5/25, the last chance until next November.
The Chili Cook-Off was a tasty blast enjoyed by almost the full membership. See the events listing for details.
