Hello All Coastal Ski & Outing Club Members,
HAPPY OCTOBER!!! Can you believe Summer is REALLY OVER?!?! iT'S OFFICIALLY FALL!! Time for raking leaves, carving pumpkins, and most of all - OCTOBERFEST!!.
Speaking of which..... We are having a fabulous OCTOBERFEST PARTY at Bob & Sherry Walters' house on Tuesday, October 5 at 5:00pm. If you have not signed up, please do so right away and let them know what you will bring, so they can plan accordingly. Bob & Sherry put on the most fun parties, so you don't want to miss this one.
Another fun event we do each year is the HALLOWEEN PARTY at the State Park. We have changed the date to FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29 starting at 5:00pm. Bring a dish to share and BYOB (discreetly), dress up in a costume and have a scary good time.
Four of us (Darin Austin, Bruce Bailey, Laura Bowers, and myself) went skydiving last month and we lived to tell about it! It was WONDERFUL AND EXHILIRATING!, Another check off the ol' bucket list.
We also had a wonderful New Members Reception last month. This is a house party held in honor of the new members who have joined the Club during the past couple of years. The Board members were there and it gave the new members a chance to get to know other new members and the Board in a non-rushed setting.
I'm so sorry we had to cancel the monthly meeting for September, but we just didn't want anyone else to be exposed potentially to Covid. We do plan to have the October meeting. It will be at the Beachfront Kitchen and Bar on the ocean on 75th Avenue, Myrtle Beach. Starts at 6:00pm
We have a great lineup of activities for October thanks to Sherry Walters and Roseanne Maglione . WOW! In addition to OCTOBERFEST, we have oyster roasts, concerts, movies, Little River Shrimp Fest, lunch at Culinary Institute (always a fabulous lunch), beach day, Hopswanee Plantation tour, Dinner & Movie, spechetti dinner & Book Club! WOW! What a line up!. YOU CERTAINLY SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOMETHING YOU LIKE TO DO THIS MONTH!
Please remember to sign up for the activities you want to attend, so we don’t have to cancel an event because of lack of interest. ALSO!!! If you have signed up for an event, and something happens, and you can’t attend, PLEASE … CANCEL on the website, and/or call the monthly coordinator, so they can adjust plans.
John Schwartz is still planning a ski trip to Tahoe March 12-19, 2022. We will be joining the Asheville Ski Club and at this point, it consists mostly of skiers, so I'm not sure about activities for non-skiers so please check it out on our web site and let John (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested.
Since COVID-19 is still an issue, if you have not had BOTH of your COVID-19 vaccination shots, we are requesting that you wear a mask to the monthly meeting (for your protection and ours) and for events where you are in close contact with other members (i.e. all other events). We will have masks at our meeting, and hope that you will respect this request.
That’s it for now, hope to see you at our next meeting and at some OR ALL of the events planned for OCTOBER!! SIGN UP AND STAY SAFE!!
Mary Alice Blackburn, President
