A Message from the Ski VP

From time to time the question comes up about how to become a coordinator for an RSOC ski trip.

Historically, coordinating RSOC Ski Trips has been awarded to the most experienced and active coordinators who are also skiers. Coordinating RSOC ski trips has also been regarded as a reward for service to the club.  Ski trips can be some of the most demanding events to coordinate.  Therefore, it is important to use our most experienced coordinators to run our ski trips.

If you would like to coordinate an RSOC ski trip and you are an experienced overnight trips coordinator, a skier and you are currently active in planning and coordinating events for RSOC, then you are eligible to coordinate a weeklong ski trip. If you do not meet this criteria and you would still like to coordinate an RSOC ski trip then get active, plan and coordinate some activities.  It's fun and very beneficial to RSOC.                                   —Jim Bennett, RSOC Ski VP

 

Please consider how you can contribute

to RSOC to keep it flourishing

and vital organization!

We have several Board positions open (see Board of Directors list on last page of the newsletter).

In addition, many of our current Officers have been serving

in their positions for several years, and we would like new voices on the Board to keep the RSOC thriving.

So, please let any Board member know of your interest in filling any of the Officer, Director or Internal Affairs positions.
