At the first meeting on Oct. 9, we will be talking about two handbook changes that were made over the summer, regarding dining and lodging arrangements. 

 

Work Weekends - There is one remaining organized work weekend left - Oct. 13-14,usually a beautiful time up in the Mad River Valley!  Please contact Reservations Chair Sandy Maguire at  sandy.tsrm@verizon.net and  Lodge Chair Dave Stein  David.stein@dms-ent.com to make your reservation and get your assignment. You can also go up another time if you pre-arrange it with Sandy and Dave.  NOTE:  We urgently need someone to wash the mattress covers and blankets.  

This is a big job best done by a few people, and can be done over the course of a few weekends, but it can't be outsourced and I think we all agree, we like clean blankets for each season!  Please contact Sandy to discuss the details.

 

Season at a glance - attached please find the "Season at a Glance" which has lots of helpful info for this coming season.  

 

Lodge - This will be a monthly reminder: as the weather gets cooler up in VT and the heat kicks on, please be conservative in turning up the thermostat.  The lodge often gets too warm, especially when the fireplace is going, 

and we are trying to manage our propane usage.  Think green! 

 

Welcome to Winter - our annual Welcome to Winter party is tentatively scheduled for Sat. Dec. 8 at the usual place, St. Joseph of Arimathea Church in Elmsford, NY.  Pam Ferraro and other board members have run this 

event for many years, but this year we are looking for someone else to step up to run this fun event.  The marvels of modern technology (email!  Sign-up Genius!) make this event easier than ever to run.  Please consider

running this event, which is so enjoyed by so many in our club.  Email Pam if you are willing and she has lots of info on past events to share with you to make it even easier!

 

See you at the meeting next week, and think snow!
