July 2016 President’s Letter

Hello Skiers & Boarders,

Hope everyone had a great July 4th. I wish to invite you to join us for the July 12thmeeting. Nancy & Mark Miller hosted a volleyball and pool party at their home on Thursday evening, June 30. Several club members attended and enjoyed the evening.

Ohio Valley Ski Club had a booth at the Multicultural Festival, held at the Parkersburg City Park, the evening of June 17 in conjunction with “Go Outside and Play”. I wish to thank Don & Becky Tanner for all their help that evening.

Lisa & I will be hosting a cycling trip on Saturday, July 30 on the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway which runs from Athens to Nelsonville, OH and is approximately 15 miles each way. It is a paved trail suitable for road bikes as well as mountain bikes. We will meet at the ball field in West State Street Park in Athens at 10:00am and ride towards Nelsonville. It’s a casual ride with no expectations of how far or how fast you ride! Just come and enjoy the trail. Afterwards, we will have a late lunch at one of the local restaurants.

Again, the Western Trip will be Whitefish Mountain Resort in Whitefish, Montana in late February, 2017.

We had a great Thursday Night Volleyball with the Ski Club.  We feasted on smoked pork, oriental cole slaw, fruit, desserts and other great dishes. We were happy to see ski club members old & new!  AV used to be a Thursday Night Volleyball regular and even found his mug from 1994!
