Carl Mayfield, from the Country Club, is super welcoming!  I’ll be sure you get to meet him on Tuesday.  He is working to include information on our club’s meetings in the their club’s newsletter.  We hope that Country Club members walk in to check out the ski club, and hopefully we will gain a few new members!You will be able to order food and beverages.  Just remember that if you choose to use a credit card, it will be an extra 3%, so plan accordingly with cash and checks.
Our July outing with the ski club was a white water rafting trip on the Lower New River, in West Virginia.  Thanks to Sheila Decker for inviting the ski club to participate with Kraton’s group trip.  Check out the video and shots below.  We had a thrilling day.  White water rafting is such a treasure for us, and if you haven’t been, I encourage you to take a trip.  You can’t beat the amout of entertainment you get for the price of a trip.  For an entire day of rafting with a fantastic lunch included, the ticket is around $100.  We did benefit from the group rate.  We rafted with ACE Adventures, and they have great camping, and a lake with all sorts of slides, trampolines, ziplines and other crazy toys to play on!So – what’s the plan for August?  Not sure, come to the meeting Tuesday and let’s pick one.  We can reschedule the Blennerhasset Island trip, we can go rock climbing via ferrata style, or anything in between.Hope to see you there!Nancy Miller
