SRC sprints to the finish

The club just completed our busiest week – conquering the slopes in varying conditions, attending multiple social events, and participating in the Annual Chez Henri Race.

On Wednesday, the ladies’ ski group, Birds of Paradise, had a great time flying up and down the slopes.

On Thursday, Club members took up the challenge of slope-side Scavenger hunt. Anne Halverson, the winner, was out the door early to search for information and collect items from all over the Mountain. Diana and Gil Edwards were hot on her trail and crossed paths with her as they raced around the hill. They all received gift certificates for their fine sleuthing skills. The scavenger hunt was the brainchild of Leslie Mahoney and will become an annual event.

On Thursday evening, the club was hosted by the Bluestone Restaurant and treated to the restaurant’s outstanding pizza. No piece was left behind. On Friday, we speculated whether the weather would allow for the Annual Chez Henri race. Fortunately, the snow gods delivered, and many in the club took up the challenge. Several club members won raffle prizes.

On Saturday, 80 members dressed in green and gathered for a St Patrick’s Day feast of corn beef, cabbage, and desserts galore, hosted by Dave and Nancy Wilstein. Begorra! It was a wonderful time!

Our final social gathering of the season was at Toast and Eggs (Nellie’s at Night) on Thursday. It was a fun evening as all the members reminisced about the year, bantered, and shared ideas for next year. We enjoyed generous and tasty food that “hit the spot”.

A week ago, club talk was about how long the season would last. Now, we have had a week of daily snow, culminating in the storm of the season. It’s a perfect touch as to wind down the season.

The Club will be having a golf tournament during the summer, perhaps a pickleball face-off and Fall BBQ after which our 2024-25 season begins.
