Winter has made its way to Central PA as we witnessed during the November membership meeting with a wintry mix, falling temperatures, and snow in many parts of the mid-state. It’s time to get those skis into the shop for their annual tune-up, and maybe shop for some new boots, equipment, clothing or accessories as well. Remember to show your membership card at the ski shops as many will give a 10% discount for being a member of our Club!

We have had a lot going on these last few weeks, and I hope you had the opportunity to join in the fun!

  • On October 18, I chaired our 8th Central PA Expo, which is co-hosted by SSC and Lancaster Ski Club. Thank you to volunteers Terri Falk, Sharon Royer, Lovena Nickle, Jim Haslam, Lilly Peek, Gary Smith, and Barb Collier, who helped with setup and worked the registration table. Over 90 people attended the event, and some great prizes were won by SSC members!
  • Thank you to Dave and Jane Timothy for leading 26 members on our first trip of the season to the Finger Lakes Wine Region; everyone had a Spooktacular time!
  • Thank you to Sharon Royer and Lovena Nickle for organizing our Movie Nights held on the third Wednesday of the month. Be sure to check the email blasts for the movie selection each month.
  • The full moon on November 5 was the perfect night for a journey to the Wolf Sanctuary! Thank you to Terri Falk for again organizing the Wolf Sanctuary Tour, and hosting the pre-tour get-together.
  • Our November membership meeting was packed with need-to-know information for more enjoyment of our favorite sport… skiing!! Thank you to each of our three presenters: John DeLuca (Elk Mountain), who shared lots of fun facts about this mountain which is just 2.5 hours to our north; Jim Mulligan (Bouquet, Mulligan, and DeMaio Eye Professionals), who gave us the stats on the Prizm Goggles and why they make skiing safer and more fun; and Shawn Withers (Mountainside Ski & Sports), who showed us some of the latest skis, boots, poles, and accessories, and gave us an overview of their comprehensive boot fitting services.
We finished the month of November with our Get-Acquainted Party on November 18. Hope you were able to attend this event! As we enter the busy holiday season, let us give thanks for our many blessings! And… Think Snow!Dianne

SSC Election of Board Officers and Directors

We are more than halfway through our administrative year, and that means we have to start thinking about volunteers for Board positions for next year. Volunteers are the engine that keeps this club running by providing great trips and fun activities for the benefit of all of its members to enjoy. Nominations for officers and directors will be presented at the January 2, 2018 membership meeting. If you are interested in serving on the 2018-2019 Board of Directors or have any questions about director or officer responsibilities, please contact Past President Sherry Predix at slpredix@comcast.net.
