Ski and Ride Club Trip!

As many of you know, last year the Ski & Ride club offered a discounted a trip to Killington for Ski & Ride members, and we are thinking about doing another trip this year. We will be meeting this Tuesday (Oct 25th) at 7:00 in Boyer 131 to decide on what we are going to do for this year’s trip.
We have had a few meetings already to discuss this. The best options are:
1). Stay at the Bethany Birches Camp cabin again and go to a mountain near that area (Vermont). The cabin worked out really well and is ideal for lodging.
2). Find an Airbnb house or two near a mountain that we want to go to and reserve them.
3). Find a mountain with a cheap lodging/lift combo for a group.
It would be awesome if people could come with suggestions to keep the meeting moving forward and to help us find a good option for this year’s trip! If you want, you can e-mail me with suggestions prior to the meeting so that we can look them over.Secondly, Night Club cards are still on sale for $184 through November 7th so get them now while they’re hot! (or cold.. I’m not sure)
Here is the info needed to do that:
•1. Go to roundtopmountainresort.com
•2. Go to the passes/cards tab and click Night Club Cards
•3. Click the blue box that reads “Select Here to Purchase Online”.
•4. The club name: 4647 and the Password: Messiah
•5. Click “See available items” under Messiah College. Select what you wish to purchase. If you’ve done this last year, just login and they should have all your info.. easy. If not make a guest file and go ahead and fill out the info.
•You will need to print and sign a release form. This can be taken to Roundtop or given to an executive.
Email Austin Kratz, Ski&Ride President, with suggestions or for more info at ak1350@messiah.edu

In addition to prayer, if you would like to contribute to disaster relief efforts in Haiti and are not already connected to an organization that is providing emergency response, we’d like to offer information about Mennonite Central Committee as an option. For information about their work and to donate (bottom of the page), please visit their website here:
