You may be wondering why Mike Hood isn’t the author of this month’s President’s column. Contrary to some rumors, there wasn’t a coup and he wasn’t impeached. Mike wasn’t going to run for re-election in April, but because we couldn’t have a meeting/election, he was continuing to serve. However, at the May Board meeting he stepped down, leaving me to fill in until we do have elections. More on that later. For the past two years, Mike has done a great job as our club president, so be sure to thank him the next time you see him.
While this has been a strange year, we are slowly starting to return to some of the things we have been missing for the last few months. One summer activity we all look forward to is the Lake Party. Does anyone remember when the CSC started having an annual Lake Party? This will occur Saturday July 11th, but since we all need to take precautions, it will be a little different this year. First, if you aren’t comfortable attending, we certainly understand. Also, if you have any symptoms or a positive test for COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms or who had a positive test, please do not attend. Second, we will be emailing a waiver form to everyone. Please print off one for each person, including children, who will be attending; read it and sign it before you arrive. We will have a box for you to put the form in when you arrive. We strongly encourage everyone to maintain six feet separation between family groups and to wear a mask when possible. We will have servers on the buffet line to minimize the number of people handling the serving utensils. We will have hand sanitizer available at multiple locations, but we encourage you to bring your own as well.
At the Lake Party, before we eat, we will have the election of officers for the 2020-2021 year. The tentative slate of candidates for the upcoming year is as follows:
Bob Tramel - President
Lulu Copeland - Vice President
Tom DuBose - Treasurer
Hilda Jones - Secretary
Jim Bates has agreed to be the Nominating Committee Chair for the election. If you are interested in running for one of these offices, please contact Jim at (706)-537-6331 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are like me, you are looking forward getting back on the snow. Sign-ups for ski trips are ongoing with Taos, NM (January 16-23, 2021), Mt. Bachelor, OR (February 20-27), and the Crescent Ski Council’s Race and Ski Camp at Steamboat CO (December 5-12 https://www.crescentskicouncil.org)
Last, we have some new members - Mark Davis, Romy Mueller, Alina Mueller, Victoria Florea, Erica Lamb, Lana Swartzlander, Todd Lyons, Gail Lyons. Let’s all be sure to welcome them to our club.
