Hello Reno Ski and Recreation club!

As you are reading this Mary and I are in Brian Head Utah. We are enjoying a 16-day ski vacation that we bought at a silent auction at last year’s Far West Ski Association Conference in Indian Wells Ca. I tell you this as this annual event is something you should consider attending. One of the features is the silent auction where many resorts across the country offer 3- and 4-day vacations for auction. We bid on three and won each one, for a combined total of less than $2,000! This is for a total of 12 days at 3 different resorts. A heck of a deal! We started at Park City, Utah, and our next stop will be Taos New Mexico. In addition to the auction, you can socialize with skiers from all over the west coast, attend informative classes and learn about the many aspects of skiing. Also, there are additional excursions and activities attached to the conference. This year’s convention will be in Portland, Oregon, May 28-31, 2020. If you are not aware, as a RSRC Member you are automatically a member of Far West Ski Association through our membership in the Sierra League and Council.

I would like to thank John Anderson for coordinating all the social ski days this month. I appreciate the fact that we are accommodating meetings at many of our local resorts. These can all be found on the website calendar. Tip: if you are not seeing these on the calendar scroll to the bottom and click on  “show tag menu.” You will see an icon on the left side towards the bottom that says “Select All.” Click on that. Click on “hide tag menu.” You should now see all of the calendared items.

I would like to thank Janet Bills for the fantastic and “sold out” Group Dinner at Ichiban! What a nice venue to share a meal with fellow members. It was enjoyed by all. Look for future group dinners as board members schedule them.

We have our Spring Shindig coming in April (see the website for details). This is a western themed dinner and dance being hosted at the Reno Elks Lodge. You can practice your Country Western Dance moves after TGIF at The Little Waldorf as they’ll be having lessons following our Happy Hour.

Sug Miles has done it again and we are returning once again to the Sierra Valley for the Tour De Manure in June (see the website for details).

Kathleen Downen has arranged for ticket to the Shakespeare at the Lake event this summer. Enjoy two great Shakespeare plays at the edge of Lake Tahoe! (See the website).

We are returning to Aces Ballpark for another 4th of July! Todd Betterton has done it again by getting a block of ticket in the party zone which includes a all you can eat barbeque dinner and a great fireworks show to top off the evening.

Dianne Hilliard has arranged for another trip to Sierra City. This very popular event sells out fast, so sign up soon. (See the website for details).

That is all for now,

See you at the bottom!

Steve Kelly, RSRC President
