Bevercreek Ski Week!   

RSOC joined Crescent Ski Council this year for a week of skiing in Beavercreek, Colorado, January 14-21. There were over 200 members from the Crescent Ski clubs, with the strongest showing by RSOC, with 36 members attending. Skiing was great, with a few inches of new snow the first few days. On Tuesday, buses took us to Vail, where we enjoyed the back bowls and beautiful scenery. In addition to great skiing, we had plenty of opportunities to socialize. Our Coordinator, Ken Schuster, hosted a great pre-trip party where new people got a chance to meet fellow trip participants. At Beavercreek, Crescent hosted a welcome party Sunday night, an appetizer apres-ski on Wednesday, and a fajita lunch on Friday. On Thursday night Crescent hosted a dinner, followed by a band and dancing. As RSOC dominated the dance floor, the snow began falling. We finished out the week with 4-6 inches of powder our last day!


21 RSOC members enjoyed the CSC Spring Convention in Myrtle Beach from April 22-24, with good-spirited competition at the Beach Olympics, and excellent dance parties on Friday and Saturday.

At the Beach Olympics, and we congratulate:

Mini Golf: Charlene Flahiff Third, Women. 

Beach Run: Charlene Flahiff  Second, Women. 

Ladder Ball: Tom Garrett and Sharyn Kloster Second.

Tennis: Tara Griffin Second.

Golf: Ron Scott’s team Second.

Volley Ball: EJ Secola's Team (mixed club team) First.

RSOC also earned a top prize for the costume contest at Saturday night’s theme party “Wild, Wild West”, with Sharyn Kloster and Tom Garrett awarded Best Couple.


Scenes from the RSOC 50th Anniversary Pig Pickin’

More than 100 current and former RSOC members had a terrific time reconnecting and reminiscing with long-time RSOC friends at the 50th Anniversary Pig Pickin’ on October 3. Our thanks to Rick Butler for providing and preparing the delicious pig; to Susan Nicholas for preparing the rest of the delicious meal with the assistance of Ernie Braasch, Charles Pulley, Viline Cherlinczuk, and Vicki Fels; and to George Rucker for providing the music. This commemoration reminded us all of how important being a member of  the RSOC has been in establishing our wonderful friendships.
