I hope everyone is managing the COVID-19 adjustments as well as possible under the circumstances. The purpose of this newsletter is to provide everyone with an update on the activities at our club and to offer you some insight into our perspective of what lies ahead for us as a club. Relative to the COVID-19 situation, you may rest assured that our Membership safety remains on the forefront. We will integrate reasonable changes if needed into our operations until which time it’s no longer necessary (restrictions are easing every month) so that our club can reopen with confidence for the 2020-21 SnowSports Season in December.
Our Board of Directors and Club Management are in the process of planning the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year which begins July 1st. Under the circumstances, we feel the prudent path to take is to prepare for a typical season at this point and adjust if necessary given any limitations placed upon the club as we near the 2020-2021 snowsports season. The Board has already decided that Membership Dues will remain the same as last season, and with that in mind please note your Membership Renewal Invoice will be coming your way shortly. Please watch for a Constant Contact notice asking for interest in receiving your invoice via e-mail rather than through the mail. Respond accordingly and if you suspect we may not have your most current e-mail, please notify Dennis at DEvinrude@ausblick.org to make any adjustments.
Our Annual Membership Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday evening, August 19th @ 7pm. Proxy votes for the election of three Board Members will be mailed out to all members 10 days prior to the meeting. You must have renewed your 2020-2021 membership for your ballot to be counted either by proxy or in attendance at the meeting.
In closing, I’d like to offer a huge Thank You to Dennis Evinrude, Kyle, Lynn, Amber and all the employees working at Ausblick the past several weeks to accomplish tasks in preparation of our upcoming season. Our Lodge has been painted, grounds refreshed and seasonal maintenance is well ahead of schedule. While we remain cautiously optimistic going forward, our enthusiasm grows daily by the progress gained in our overcoming the pandemic.
