A message from Dianne

The View From The Top


Happy Summer! I love summer and all that it brings – warm weather, long days, outdoor patios, BBQ’s, swimming, camping, biking and hiking and other recreational activities - the list goes on. Typically, I would add summer parties to this list, but alas, our current situation is not conducive to parties. I look forward to summer parties again someday. For now, let’s enjoy what we can do!

So yes, we have found ways to have activities and social distance to keep everyone safe. Our TGIF’s in parks are working out well. Many have commented that for hot summer evenings, meeting at a park is more favorable for TGIF’s instead of restaurants; something to consider! Thank you, Todd Betterton, for organizing our outdoor TGIF’s. And Gary Rose, our VP of Skiing, is organizing some outdoor recreational activities for the rest of summer. Outdoors makes it easier to social distance in these COVID times.

We have two trips on our calendar. Our annual Sierra City trip led by yours truly is scheduled for September 11-13. I just booked the last room, yet I have no waiting list.  It’s not uncommon for someone to have to cancel so if interested let me know and I’ll get you on the list. Also, currently there is space for trailers and RV’s – again, let me know if you are interested. Our second trip is camping at Davis Creek Park for September 25 – 28. At the time I am writing this there is still room for trailers and tent campers. For only $20 per member for 3 nights of camping, what are you waiting for? Contact Todd Betterton for information.

You have probably already heard that the Air Races are cancelled this year. This event provided an opportunity for our Club’s biggest fund-raiser. We will have to get creative this year if things don’t turn around soon. More to come on this later.

We will keep you informed with our email blasts as new activities are scheduled, and when we are able to have our general meetings again.

Enjoy summer!

Keep recreating,
