The Council

The By-laws of Council state that council will hold three general meetings a year. Dinner Meetings have been traditionally scheduled for the fall (late September), winter (early to mid-January), and spring (May). Member clubs have taken on the responsibility of organizing these dinner meetings. Getting a club to volunteer to run the meeting has not been a problem until recently. It has fallen to Council too often in the past several years to organize these meetings. We need clubs to come forward and take on this responsibility.

On a rotating basis, with a current affiliated club membership of 39, a club would only have to be a host less than every 14 years. That really does not seem to be a huge commitment for any club. So, sign up early for the meeting of your choice and satisfy your obligation to run a dinner meeting before someone else snatches away your preferred dates.

The next general membership meeting will be here before we know it. Call today and volunteer as a host club. You will be sent an outline of what you will need to do to run the meeting. Mailing labels for the invitations are supplied by council. You would need to find a place to have the meeting and choose the menu. You would need to find four or five sponsors for the cocktail hour. If you wanted to include door prizes or raffle items, you would need to solicit these things. You would need to take reservation and collect the payments. Once you start the process you will find it goes quite easily, and members of the council board will be available to help.

Raise your hand to volunteer by contacting Larry Kirschner, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your dates.

Free  Lessons

This winter's ski lesson program will again take place at Spring Mountain, and there will be 3 nights of lessons:  January 7, 14, 28, 2019.  (We skip MLK Monday.) 

If there is an evening where lessons cannot take place (for example, should Spring be closed for bad weather), there will be a make-up night held on Monday, February 4th. However, as long as Spring is open, we WILL have lessons. Lessons start promptly at 6:30pm, and a registration table in the main lobby will be manned from 5-7pm each night.

Participants MUST be a current member of an EPSC-affiliated club and show their membership card on their first night of attendance. A completed registration form is required; blank forms will be available each night, but things will go faster if participants can have one filled out ahead of time and bring it along. (Available to download and print on EPSC website.) Lessons are available for never evers, novice and intermediate skiers. Attend just one night, or all three.
