Since we are getting close to the end of the season it is time again to get ready for the I-du-ski and snowshoe award presentations. As always the March club meeting has served as the club’s awards presentation and Roberta Truscott has taken the lead at tallying accomplishments and preparing certificates. Hopefully everyone has been keeping track of your skiing and snowshoeing accomplishments and are ready to get them to Roberta.
In order for there to be enough time to tally accomplishments and complete certificates before next week’s meeting please email them to her by Friday, February 25th. Send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have the capability to scan and/or email documents, you can drop them off at Truscott’s residence at 3774 N Sutters Way, CDA 83815, or as a last resort bring them with you to the meeting. Please try to get your accomplishments to Roberta by no later than the February 28th .
The Ski area has finally received a little more snow this week, and hopefully there is more on the way. If we’re lucky skiing and snowshoeing conditions will hang in there for a few more weeks. I encourage you to take advantage of it as long as a you can.
As far as the trail grooming conditions go most of the ski trails are cleared and are being groomed on a regular weekly schedule. The exceptions include the last quarter mile or so of Elderberry and all of Eagle Run. From reports skiing these routes is possible but due to trees that have only been partially cleared it can be a challenging experience. Since the end of the season is rapidly approaching the decision was made to hold off on finishing the clearing of these trails until we can drive them with a vehicle other than a snowmobile.
Finally, we will still be meeting at the same location (Community United Methodist Church). The meeting is Tuesday, March 1st and will start at 7:00 PM. Hope you all can make it! PS – please remember to bring your masks and please wear them properly (i.e., cover your nose and mouth) while in the building. We appreciate being allowed to use the church facility at no cost to the club. So we want to continue abiding by their safety requirements.
