Another fine Chattanooga Ski Club Board has been working for weeks on the next year’s trips. Our trips continue to evolve to the members’ needs and desires. We do a lot more than ski. Change is necessary for groups like ours. We continue to try new events and trips.
Several traditions have remained at the core of the club values. We volunteer and support charities and community causes with money and manpower. These activities are both enjoyable and uplifting.
We welcome new members to the club both skiers and non-skiers. We have a large number of members who join for other reasons than snow sports. Several Board members are in this group. Age and injury are moving some of us into this group sooner than we would wish.
We take care of one another on trips and at home.
I joined the Chattanooga Ski Club for the low cost trips. I found that benefit and a friendly caring group of people. Dan Paul and Harry Brundage were the first two to take the new kid under their wings. They made me feel welcome and included on the trip both skiing and off slope both. They were both gentlemen of the highest order. The Hilbrandts, Plemons, and Peaks also went out of their way to be inclusive to everyone.
The people who make up the ski club make the ski club great. The club will continue to grow and prosper as long as we remember to include everyone. Thank all the leaders and members for all they have done. I am proud to be member of the Chattanooga Ski Club.
