Ausblick Ski Club - President’s Message
Our Ski Club’s Annual Membership Meeting was held at the lodge this past Wednesday evening. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank those who attended and those who participated by returning their proxy ballot. With two of the four incumbent Board Members deciding not to be on the ballot, as a result the Nomination Committee was tasked to find replacements. My sincere thanks to Scott Grady, Nomination Chair, Dan Johnson and Mike Senkbeil, Committee Members. After the votes were counted, incumbent Directors Bob Turowski and Rick Ludwig, plus members Phil Laning and Jeff Minor were elected to a three year term on the Ausblick Board. Congratulations and Welcome Phil and Jeff.
October’s nearly upon us, and many are already making plans for the snowsports season not far away. Part of the process for many will be attending the annual Ski Sale at Ausblick, scheduled for Saturday, October 15th. Watch for details on all our events this season. Dennis and Lynn are working on all the events at the club and once determined, the events will be posted on our calendar on the website. And speaking of the website, there are improvements being made in several areas of the website which you may appreciate. I’ll defer to Dennis & Lynn to disclose more information as the improvements become available. Just to catch your interest, watch for an upgrade and additional web camera very soon.
Looking back at last season’s 50th. Anniversary of Ausblick and General Manager Dennis Evinrude, there’s no doubt that our ski club is more than a “snowsports place to hang” during the winter months. Families learn & strengthen their snowsports skills, many build lasting friendships, and some get involved and often leave behind memories of their contributions over the years. Two such Friends of Ausblick have decided to leave the Board, however will remain as Ausblick Members.
Our Sincere Thanks to Bob Kuelthau (37 years) and Jim Stein (32 years) for their Ausblick Board Service. They gave of their time, experience and resources to help make the Ausblick Ski Club what it is today. Please extend your appreciation to Bob and Jim as you see them over the course of the upcoming season.
Bob Turowski – President, Ausblick Ski Club.
