President's Message

A message from Dianne

The View From The Top

As I write this, the air has recently cleared and I am so appreciating blue skies and clear air. It’s so easy to take for granted simple things in life like seeing the sky and stars. The year 2020 has certainly taught us to appreciate the good things we have and not take much of anything for granted.

September was a month of many activities for our Club, including two trips in one month! We had a blast at Sierra City. This occurred when the smoke was terrible in Reno. Amazingly, it was at a decent level in Sierra City. We were limited with hiking and other activities due to the closure of the national forests, so we enjoyed the resort we were in, the downtown area, and some local hikes. The friendship and camaraderie was unbeatable.

 I am currently packing for the Davis Creek campout which I anticipate to also be much fun with beloved ski club friends.

 Thank you, Doug Barr, for hosting your Monday night football party. This worked out well with a small group. Although there was enough food there for an army!

 Things are still unstable and unknown with COVID-19, but if you are thinking about planning any kind of trip or activity for the near future, please talk to me. We can plan ahead and hope for the best!

 In a recent email blast I mentioned a change in our bylaws, to reduce/combine some board positions. Please refer to the article in this newsletter for further information.

 And please, as I have stated before, 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

 So please, renew your membership – only $25 this year! The renewal time frame is from September 1 through November 30, and your membership will be valid through November of 2021. Visit our website and click on “membership.”

 Keep recreating,

Dianne
