President's Message

What a show - what a great turnout - skiing is believing! 
Join in a ski trip this winter - come along on our activities!!!

Wow!  Thank you Peter and Tami!  What more can one say.  I was overwhelmed by the many faces, both new and old, who showed up at our November club night, one of the only ones where we did not bring along our P.A. system.  We had to have Roger Lambert help us with his great, booming voice to get parts of our message out to all of you. 

Yes, we are still around and skiing Sun Peaks, Red Mountain, Whistler/ Blackcomb and a few more each and every year.  With some of the trips already sold out, our new members will have to put their names onto the waiting list, but there are always last minutes cancellations, so it is very likely you will be able to go.  However, at club night, we still had 25 spots open on three of the trips, so get those membership forms in and start skiing or snowboarding.  

The Victoria Alpine Ski Club has been hard at work bring great ski trips at very reasonable prices.  There is no time to lose if you plan to ski with the group and make new friends.

Have you been nice and naughty?.. or is that the other way around?  We have it from the top, Watermelon and her comedy show is back.  December is when you need to be nice if you want that special gift from Santa.  Come along and see the WRONG SHOW. 
Date: December 22, 2019 - Waldorf Hotel's Tiki Lounge.  We will have more in this newsletter very soon. 

Grey Cup - Hey, I won one round of the cards.  Congratulations are in order for Doreen, Iain, and Joseph.  Joseph won the third quarter and the final.  Good to have seen all of you on game day.

Board Game Night was a success.  Iain and Irene hosted a lovely evening with a roasted Black Forest Ham, Lara was MC and hosted the game Family Feud (I think the other family cheated, and I am still mad --hey that's why it's called a feud).  Great new large board game; the other table held their mind/ memory games.  Good thing there was lots of food and beer/ wine to ease the strain on or brains.

 ...please, check out the Christmas Charity Pub Crawl page.  Member of the Pacific Ski Club and friends from the Victoria Alpine Ski Club get together in Vancouver for this Annual Charity event.
We sold our past members and guests Pub Crawl tickets, so I think it will be a bigger group than last year's event.

Tickets at $5.00 each, hat and gifts sales along the way.  All the money collected , (100%) goes to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau.  Any donation over $10.00 may ask for a personal income tax receipt this year.

Grand Prize (as mentioned above) - Joseph B. Lavalley has donated an original acrylic painting.  This $500.00 value work of art will be raffled off at our December meeting.  Tickets and information at : PSC Christmas Charity Pub Crawl.

Not every child is fortunate enough to find a gift under the Christmas tree, and our donations help out those in need.  Please, set Saturday, December 7th aside to join us in this worth-while cause.  It's also a lot of fun.  Santa comes down from the North Pole to help us out each year.

  Welcome to the members who signed up at that club night.

Dust off the boards, get the edges sharpened, the bases waxed, and go to ski fit.  The temperature has dropped below zero and the snow is about to fall; the mountain will open before you know it.
Cheers! Enjoy the Advent /Christmas Season

Don't forget our Sponsors, especially :

John Henry's Resort and Marina   who are provided the 4 bottles of premium wine for our AGM draw.  

See you at our Christmas Party (club night), December 19th, 6:30 pm onward.

Sven Stefanov, PSC President
