The View From The Top
What a great fall – fabulous outdoor colors, amazingly warm weather, and fun times and activities with the Reno Ski and Recreation Club. Our outdoor TGIF’s were well attended. The Davis Creek trip was a blast, with 25 Recr’s camping and/or joining in the group BBQ. And our turnout for our recent group bike rides was fantastic. With a choice in bike rides – 10 or 22 miles, we were able to accommodate all interested – and about 40 participated. The picnic at Bower’s Mansion afterwards was like old times – well, we did social distance, so it was almost like old times. Although since distancing is the new normal it didn’t feel much different. Regardless, it was so much fun to enjoy outdoor recreation and socializing and connect with so many friends.
And did you participate in the virtual pumpkin decorating contest?
With winter and cold temperatures fast approaching, we need to make some changes to our activities. Weekly COVID friendly TGIF’s will have to be modified, possibly to some weekend afternoons when the weather permits, and some Zoom socials. Details forthcoming.
Since we are not ready yet to have in person meetings, we will start having Zoom general meetings. Yes, that’s right – we just have to be creative. Our first will be on Tuesday, November 10 starting at 6:30 p.m. Our guest speaker will be a representative from Mt. Rose Ski Resort to talk about how the 20-21 season will look like as the pandemic continues. Mark you calendars! We will send out the information to join the meeting as we get closer to the date.
By now I am sure you are aware of our virtual Bake and Craft Sale fundraiser that will be held in December. This event is one of our most popular, so with modifications, we want to keep if that way. Vice President Pat Deenihan and Webmaster Robert Newbury have found a great website to use. You will easily be able to post information about an item to donate. And to purchase the scrumptious and festive items, you will be able to sign up on the site, put your credit card information in, and bid when the time starts. And if you are a lucky winner, your card will be charged at the time. Look for a separate article in the newsletter.
Last call to ask you to renew your membership, if you have not done so already, before it expires at the end of November. And please, do not abandon our Club in these challenging times! Recognizing that we will not be able to offer our members as many activities as during good times, the Board of Directors has agreed to reduce the membership fee for the 2020-21 year from $40 to $25 per member
Your membership will be valid through November of 2021. Visit our website and click on “membership.”
