Hello All Coastal Ski & Outing Club Members,
Hey, There, Everyone!!! Hope this letter finds you well and happy.... and hopefully, COOL! Can you believe the hot days we have been having?!? We LOVE LIVING AT THE BEACH, but we certainly have had to share it this Summer! I think this is one of the busiest Summers I can remember here. Oh, well, the Hotels and Restaurants and Entertainment Industries are having a BANNER YEAR!!. Hang in there, in another month, we will have the beach all back to ourselves (and the golfers)!
We had a great month of Activities in July. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO FAITH CAMPBELL AND ROSEANNE MAGLIONE for the wonderful and varried activities (pool party, Boat House Concert, Beach Party, Games & Ice Cream social, Ladies' Lunch and Movie) in July. Remember, Pie Eyed Parrot Boat ride is rescheduled for August.
Bill Neumann and Elena Moglia and Pat Van have wonderful activities lined up for August - Music on Main in NMB, Ladies lunch, Scavenger Hunt, Belly Dancing, AND NOT TO MENTION THE famous and so much fun White Water Rafting Trip!. Be sure to sign up for all the activities you want to participate in. Remember, you get to know the other members of the Club better when you join in and attend the fun things we have planned.
We are at the State Park Beach Shelter again this month on Tuesday, August 9 at 6:00pm... the Club will provide Pizza, Salad, Water, and Cake. Please BYOB (discreetly) if you want anything else.
We gave out a handout at the July meeting which is a guide to help new members sign into the Apricot Website and how to navigate it (sign up, cancel, etc.) THANK YOU TO PEGGY CHRISTI and the Board for their efforts on this handout. If you did not get one, please contact one of the Board Members, and we will get you one.
We began our new fiscal year in June. What that means is, IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID YOUR DUES ($50) YET, YOU WILL BE DROPPED FROM OUR DATA BASE AND MEMBERSHIP ROLLS AS OF AUGUST 31, 2022. Most members have renewed already, BUT, if you have not, please complete a new registration form (we need a new one every year) and send it to Coastal Ski & Outing Club, PO Box 8043, Myrtle Beach, SC 29578. The application form can be found on our website and we will have them at the meeting. I used to call all members who did not renew, but now, I figure if you want to renew, you will. Please do not think it is because we don't miss you, because we do. I hope those of you who have not renewed, will reconsider, and join again. It is well worth the cost, when you think of all the meeting foods the Club provides, the planned activities, and the PRICELESS CAMARADERIE you get with friends!!!
John Schwartz is coordinating (with Holidaz rep) some exciting BIG TRIPS, like Ireland in September 2023. We will limit this trip to 44 members. We already have many signed up as interested. We will take current members first before we can offer it to friends and/or relatives. If you are REALLY interested and ready to commit, please bring your $350 down payment to the August meeting. Checks should be made payable to "Coastal Ski & Outing Club. This will assure you a spot on the trip. Total cost of the 8-day trip will be $3000-$3500pp (double occupancy). This INCLUDES airfare.
That’s it for now, hope to see you at our next meeting and at some OR ALL of the events planned for AUGUST!! SIGN UP AND STAY SAFE AND COOL!!
Mary Alice Blackburn, President
