Autumn Newsletter, 2017

Mon 01 May 2017
Highlights from Summer and the months to come
As the Annual General Meeting approaches, we would like to welcome a new member and review some of the highlights from the last few months and upcoming events relevant to all members.

 

The club has been active over the warmer months with groups booking the whole club. Eltham Ski Club hosted a number or Scouts in conjunction with the 20th Annual Australia Rover Moot who enjoyed some time in the mountains between December 27th, 2016 and January 6th, 2017. If you’re interested in booking the club for a corporate activity over the year, rates will be published after the AGM. If you want to make a booking sooner, please contact the Booking Officer, Geoff Geist at geist02@optusnet.com.au.

 

Summer Bicycling

Whilst the Victorian Interschools and our own OLOS/Eltham ski races have become a highlight of the ski season, Mount Buller is also hosting world-class bike events that rival the excitement of winter sports.  March saw two races taking place, including the 48km Mansfield to Mount Buller road race that includes a gruelling 16km uphill ride.

 

It’s still not too late to experience the fun on two wheels with the upcoming Blue Dirt Blowout. On the weekend of April 29-30, single day or weekend passes are available for downhill shuttles with a free sausage sizzle, free beers and pizza for all in attendance. Read more here and get your tickets as no registrations will be taken on the day.

 

Working Bees

The March working bee saw an unusually late snow shower, which meant exterior painting had to be postponed. A lower than expected turnout also put paid to some of the plans the Maintenance Officer had for the weekend. The next working bee on April 29-30 so far has a healthy turnout, however a few more helping hands would be appreciated.

 

2017 AGM

The Eltham Ski Club Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 3rd May at The Geebung Polo Club in Hawthorn. We welcome the attendance of all members and look forward to catching up with friends new and old.

 

Fob Key Implementation

It looks like the fob keys are working well and feedback has been positive on the whole. We are mindful that some fob keys may have been lost or misplaced. If you are missing any fob keys, could you please contact Jim via email on jtsaouss@bigpond.net.au with either the details of your missing fobs or the details of the fobs in your possession.

 

New member: Brendan Lynch

Brendan Lynch joins the club this year along with his wife, Jen and sons Bruno and Amos. Brendan hails from New Zealand where he started skiing as a child and into his twenties. He’s stayed at Eltham Ski Club and enjoyed the family atmosphere. We hope Brendan and his family enjoy their time skiing this year before heading off to Italy for a five-month sojourn, where he plans to keep working in his business of manufacturing drinking fountains for the education sector.
