This is the last SnoBiz of this season – we are taking May off and will have a monthly newsletter over the summer.
First off, I would like to sincerely thank all of you for being members of High Park Ski Club. Without all of you we would not exist.
At this point I would also like to express a special thank you to ALL of our volunteers who are the backbone of the club. Absolutely nothing would get done without the volunteer hours put in by members so that their fellow members can enjoy trips, receive lessons, attend socials, check information on our website, read this newsletter, attend election night or AGM virtually, or receive a refund when required, as well as numerous other things. Volunteers are just that and can choose to walk away if they do not feel they are being appreciated. I look forward to honouring all of our volunteers at the Volunteer’s Dinner in September.
I would also like to thank all of the members who attended, either in person or via Zoom, this week’s election meeting. This allowed us to ensure we achieved the official quorum required by our club By-laws to proceed with the election. There are two events in the annual calendar where members have direct input on how the club is run – the election in April and the Annual General Meeting in September. No official actions can be taken without a quorum of members present as outlined in our By-laws. So again, thank you!
I would like to congratulate and welcome the following members as new Directors to the Board. I look forward to working with each of you.
Director of Administration: Wendy Rangel
Director of Finance: Francis Rementilla
Director of IT: Peter Kovalchuk
Director of Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding: Christine Bellerose
On a personal note, for those who have asked, my recovery has been coming along nicely this time, and I hope to be able to cycle by sometime in July. And of course, be ready for next ski season!
I do hope to see and speak with many of you over the summer at our various social events (see below) or just out and about. If not, I want to wish all of you a fantastic summer and look forward to seeing you in the fall! FYI, SkiFit resumes on Saturday, September 9th!
President, High Park Ski Cl
