Newsletter – October 19th

Annual Club Meeting Next Monday, October 22nd

Please join us for our annual meeting and celebration of the upcoming ski season.  The event starts at 3:30 with a special introduction to roller skiing, then moves indoors for social hour (1st beer or wine is on us) followed by free dinner and finally a short meeting.

  • Commodores Inn, just south of Stowe Center on Rt 100
  • 3:30pm – come check out Roller Skiing with NENSA’s Justin Beckwith
    • if you have never been on roller skis this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try in a safe environment with professional instruction
    • Helmet is required to participate.  We will have lots of skis and a limited quantity of boots and poles to lend – best to bring your own boots and poles so they fit (NNN bindings preferably)
  • 5:00pm – if you would rather not roller ski, just show up at 5pm for social hour – your first beer or wine is on us and cash bar after that
  • 5:40pm – dinner (also on us)
  • 6:00pm – annual meeting – update on what’s in store for this winter (programs, events, trips etc.), volunteer opportunities, and quick but compulsory business of electing club officers & board members

“Volunteer Give-Back” is Back for 2019 Season 

Our fantastic community of volunteers is the heart and soul of Stowe Nordic.  We hope everyone who volunteers during the course of the ski season has fun, makes new friends and feels good about helping out with important winter events.  We could not do what we do without your help, so in thanks for your time and effort we want to share our appreciation for what you do and add a bit more to the fun and reward of being a Stowe Nordic volunteer.  Here’s the program:

  • For every 1/2 day you volunteer you will receive 1 entry for our huge season end volunteer raffle (the more days you volunteer, the better your chances of winning)
  • Every volunteer receives an invitation to our free season end volunteer appreciation dinner
  • At the end of every big event (and there are a bunch this year) all volunteers are invited to a casual post-event-party immediately following the event with free beer, wine and snacks

All volunteer opportunities will be posted on our website at:  https://stowenordic.org/volunteer-opportunities/    Plus there is a “Volunteer Opportunities” button right on the home page that takes you to the same place.

To sign up for any event or with any questions please email us at:  volunteer@stowenordic.org.
