Reservations - As a reminder, to make a reservation, please email Sandy Maguire at sandy.tsrm@verizon.net and again, your reservation is NOT FINAL until you have heard from her that you are a "go"!.

Lodge news - 


Book swap - Mark and Jean Duffy collected a small number of old paperbacks and put them in the fire pit area as a start on a book swap area.  If anyone wants to contribute (or has a small bookshelf or even a bookend we could use) that would be great. Feel free to take and leave a book!


Front door care: The front door has been sticking a bit recently. Please be careful to pull it all the way closed when it is supposed to be locked.


Club news -


Race weekend - Larry Durkin is our club's organizer for the inter-club Legacy Ski Race on Feb. 15, 2020 from 10 am to 3 pm, Please contact Larry if you're interested in racing  - larrydurkin@gmail.com.  There will be an apres-ski gathering as well, which is always a good time!


Club Crawl - A member from the Hartford Ski Club, Mike Boland, is organizing a Schuss Pass Ski Club "crawl", on Sat. Feb. 22 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm, and our lodge will be one of the "stops"!  Not sure when our time slot is, but we'll be serving food and drinks to whomever comes by.  Noam Shoshan is our club organizer, and we'll be asking our cook Jake to come prepare some fun appetizers.  Please be aware that if you're staying at the club that weekend, we will NOT have a traditional dinner that Saturday night, so if you're not interested in taking part in the crawl, please make your own arrangements for dinner, and that there will be other non-club guests in our lodge for the hour or so that we are hosting.  More details to come - sounds like fun!


Signing off - think snow!
