PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE (April 2019)

Our club just completed another great ski season with a ton of wonderful and wonder-filled trips. Many of us made new friends and had a great time with old friends. Although you may be sad that our 2018-2019 ski season is over, we have great news! We’re already making plans for another awesome season, and it’s well on the way to becoming a reality. See the preliminary schedule here on our website for more on that.

Thank you to the people who travelled with us for making this such a fun season. I also want to thank the Board Members, the Trip Committee, and the Trip Leaders for all the efforts they contributed to making this another successful year. On that note, congratulations are in order for the newly elected Board Members whose 2019-2020 terms begin on May 1st. Scroll down and click on Club Leadership below (after May 1) to see who’s serving in each position.

Visit our website often and make sure you’re signed up for our e-newsletter, The Sitzmark, to get Club news and learn about social events. Please plan to come to the Club Parties. The next one will be in August. We will publish all the party dates at the bottom of this web page as soon as we’re able.

Have a wonderful summer!

Mike Pearson
TBSSB President 2018-19
