I am so excited; spring is approaching, and pandemic restrictions are lightening up. I know that many Club members are receiving their vaccines. I am very hopeful that we will be socializing again soon! Summer TGIF’s, here we come!
We have two new trips this summer/fall. Todd Betterton has secured a group campsite at Davis Creek for a trip this August. Trailer space is limited yet there is plenty of space for tent campers. And with this campground being basically in Reno’s backyard, you can also sign up to visit for a day and/or the BBQ and forego the camping. Also on the calendar is the 10th annual Sierra City trip let by yours truly in September. This is always a fun and popular trip.
ELECTIONS! They are happening in May. We have kept this social and recreational Club alive during a pandemic, let’s continue to keep it going, please! We have 8 board positions. In this April newsletter and on our website, you will see an article with job descriptions. Please consider stepping forward. We cannot have a Club with a Board of Directors, it’s that simple. As a board member, you can delegate some of your responsibilities to others. All positions are open. I understand that often members do not want to “run against” a current incumbent. If you want to discuss who so far has stepped forward to run and what positions we absolutely need a volunteer for, talk to me. If you want to volunteer to run for a position, let me know.
Our Mt. Rose social ski days have been a bit hit! I am jealous of all those retired folks who are able to ski during the week but am happy so many can enjoy the uncrowded slopes. We have two methods to help Club friends find each other on the slopes: 1) Suzie Jacox now has our Club pole flags to put on your ski poles, and 2) Doug Barr has ribbons to put on the back of your helmets.
We have a “Match Play” Golf Tournament that you can sign up for, thanks to Doug Barr. We will continue to schedule activities and announce them via email blasts. Our general meeting for April will be on Tuesday, April 13 via Zoom.
Our membership is at 165. I am thrilled that our membership is doing well in these times. Do you need to update your address, phone number, email address, or add your birthday? You can do this in your RSRC sports engine account through our website. Reference the newsletter article for additional information.

The “snow gods” have been generous lately, enhancing our ski season. How thankful we are to actually have a ski season, and extra snow just makes it all the better. Who would have thought a pandemic would shut down skiing? Hopefully that is behind us for good now.
You will notice our calendar looks a bit empty. With spring around the corner we are going to try for more outdoor activities. And rather than schedule outdoor activities in advance, we are going to schedule based on the weather forecast and then send an email blast a few days prior. We are especially hoping to schedule a weekend afternoon TGIF in a park sometime in March if the weather is warm enough. No, WHEN the weather is warm enough, I like that thought better!
Our movie watch parties have been fun. Not only do we get an entire movie theater to ourselves, but we are able to actually see each other and socialize a bit before and after the movie. Another will be scheduled soon.
We will continue our general meetings via Zoom until the day comes we can meet again in person. The turnout has been good. We are working on speakers for upcoming meetings.
Congratulations to Suzie Jacox for winning the Snow Angel contest, with a special mention to Eileen Puterski for making her snow angel while in snowshoes. Thanks also again to Doug Barr for thinking of and organizing this creative contest.
Elections for the 2021-22 Board of Directors is around the corner, coming up this May. Please start thinking about stepping forward to run for a position. We need board volunteers to keep this club running. Our board meetings have been by Zoom lately and they have been pretty short and sweet. We will post more information in our April newsletter, but in the meantime, contact me or any board members if you have questions or would like additional information.
Hope to personally see you all soon!
