Our previous season was loaded with special events such as Charles Elliot’s 100th birthday and our 30 year club anniversary, plus some terrific dumps of snow.
Hopefully the coming year will be as eventful. The forecast of an el Nino weather pattern for the coming season is a welcome suggestion that we can expect avery good snow season this coming winter. Your Board of Directors is remaining essentially the same, and you can expect very little to change in the way of events that will be put on for the enjoyment of the club membership.
Our shift to the new season began on June 18 with our Annual Business Meeting featuring the traditional smoked pig and our 30 year celebration. The meeting
was enjoyed by all, as you can see in the group photo later in this newsletter. If you get the chance, always remember to thank Mary Gamache for the work that she does photographing and getting out the newsletter.
At this time of year, the club has two on-going events taking place. Every Tuesday (that is Gray Wolf Day, isn’t it?) gray wolves are meeting for food and drink at Riff-Raff Brewery in Pagosa Springs at 3:00, which is when their happy hour begins – half price for their beers and some selected appetizers. Participation has been low the last few weeks, and we would enjoy your joining us.
We also are continuing the Gray Wolf Theater nights at the Pagosa Center for the Arts. This summer includes an incredible series of performances - Les Miserables, July 19 (with Opera quality singers to blow you away), A Chorus Line, July 31(with some of the best dancers in the USA), Beauty and the Beast, Aug 8 (with incredible costumes), and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Aug 20 (with guest performances by some of your friends in the audience). All these plays will receive the Gray Wolves discount and reserved seating by accessing the promo code “GW1” at www.pagosacenter.org, but you must buy in advance and arrive at least 15 minutes early. Be sure to check out the list of vendor discounts that are available to Gray Wolf Ski Club members below in this newsletter.
Remember to put on you calendar our Annual Tail Gate Party in the parking lot at Wolf Creek Ski Area on the last Sat. in September, which is when they start selling us our pre-season ski passes for the coming season – see the details below in this newsletter.
If you ever have any problem with the club, an event, or the Board, please do not hesitate to contact me personally about the problem. I served the club as treasurer for many years, and now I have risen to the level of my greatest incompetence, President. I will do my best for the club, but recent past Presidents will be hard acts to follow. As mentioned above, all of the Board members are continuing, and we expect to provide you with the same events and services as in recent years. Please thank them, when you can, for the dedication and enthusiasm they bring to our club.
