Hello All Coastal Ski & Outing Club Members,
HAPPY SPRING!!! It's FINALLY here!!
I am so very sorry it's been a while since you have heard from me via this President's Letter. Sometimes. "LIFE" gets in the way of our best intentions. You all know how that goes. So..... Let's catch up!
Many many thanks to February and March Event Planners (Feb - Grey & Mary Culbreth; March - Sally Hucks and Annie Laurie Lehman). The events were beautifully orchestrated and well attended. We have a few more fun things to do in March (luncheon & movie, book club, golf & Plantation Tour). So, get out there and make the most of the rest of March!!
April Event Planner, Jill Stone, has added some new events - think.... AXE THROWING & SHAG LESSONS, and many more exciting adventures. Not to mention our trip to Amsterdam & Rhine River Cruise - Can't wait!!
Joe Calabretta tells me that we have Event Planners for the rest of 2023! - YEEEAAA!!! to ALL of YOU!
The Crescent Council Spring Convention is also the last weekend in April. Our Club is not as involved in the Convention as we have been in the past due to our Rhine River Cruise, so we are not doing the decorations for the Saturday night party this year - theme is Woodstock. However, you can still register for the Convention (April 27 - 30) if you choose to. Registration is $80pp and includes drink tickets for several events and attending the Convention functions. Another change to the norm of the Convention is that there will not be VENDORS at the Friday night get together. The Crescent Council has invited our club to join them in mini golf on Friday, April 28 at 10:00am at Rainbow Falls mini golf course. you can play for $9pp without paying the full convention registration fee and join them for lunch at The Backyard Restaurant - (Dutch treat after mini golf). Contact Faith Campbell 843-455-0606 if you are interested in playing mini golf with the Convention folk.
We will be presenting again the Proposed Slate of Officers for next fiscal year at our meeting in April, and you will be asked to vote on them. The newly elected officers and Board Mmbers will be inducted at the May meeting and start their duties in June. If you are interested in being on the Board and/or being a Committee Chair (Merchandise, Hospitality, etc.), please let me or another Board member know of your interest.
As always, keep an eye on the Website for any additions, changes or corrections to the events coming up.
Please share your interest in our club with your friends and neighbors and invite them to a meeting. We are 136 members strong now and still have room for more.
Remember, we still have room on the Scotland/Ireland trip in September. Please see John Schwartz if you are interested in joining us. IN ORDER TO GO ON A TRIP WITH THE CLUB, YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE CLUB! We have a wonderful time, and traveling with a group is as good as it gets!
I look forward to seeing you at our meeting in April and/or at some of our events!
Mary Alice Blackburn, President
