Spring is here and it would appear that the season has started to come to an end! I hope everyone was able to get out and get a few more kilometers of skiing or snowshoeing in over the past few weeks.
As of the end of this week the grooming crew will begin the business of transitioning the area from skiing and snowshoeing to spring and summer uses. If you plan to visit the area next week just be aware that gates that have been closed all winter may be open. As such, the trails will probably no longer be groomed and may have foot prints or tire tracks in them where there is still snow.
FYI, I recently was made aware that the annual Coeur d’Alene Earth day event is going to take place on April 23rd. What I didn’t realize was the deadline for letting the organizers know that the club would want a booth is March 23rd, (i.e., tomorrow). Unfortunately, based on my inquiry to the board no one, including myself, was available to take the lead and an application has not been sent in. So, I am asking if any of you members would be willing to make the contact, by tomorrow, and take the lead at covering a booth for the club. If so please let me know and I will forward you the message Nancy Lewis sent me. The application form may be an attachment to the message. If you are interested, please call “Charlene Beach (listed as a member of the event planning team)” @ 208 769-2315” by tomorrow. You should let them know the application will be in the mail soon.
The agenda for the final meeting of the season will be the development of a summer activities list. Hopefully, since it was mentioned at the March meeting that we would be making the list everyone has been thinking about ideas. All ideas are welcome. So come prepared with ideas like float trips, hiking or biking.
Finally, for the April meeting it was decided that we would meet for pizza and beer, or soda pop. In the past we have held the meeting at the Pizza Factory. But to make sure of where we will meet it will be discussed at the board meeting coming up next Tuesday (the 29th) and a message be will sent out and posted on the WEB with the details on location and time. Be sure to check for the follow up message later next week.
