NSC Meeting Minutes 3-16-17

NEWINGTON SKI CLUB MINUTES
March 16, 2017

Meeting was called to order by President Jon Putnam at 7:45pm.
Reminder to sign the book in the bar when ordering drinks.
Secretary’s Report: Last meetings minutes 2/16/17 were reviewed which was Soup, Stew and Chili night.

Treasurer’s Report: Carol Sweeney was away. Jon reported the club is in good financial standing. We went over budget on the racer reimbursement, but since we did not have the club race we saved $1400. We should be able to reimburse each racer $15 per race. Will look into giving additional donation to Skiers Unlimited to make the total contribution $1000. The members contributed $822 so we would look to give an additional $178. from Newington Ski Club. The board will figure out the budget remaining and what can be carried over with our non-profit status.

Membership: Co-Vice President Jim Carle was not able to make the meeting and Dan Petit resigned so Jon gave an update, no new member sign-ups. We have approximately 460 members to date.

On-Snow: NSC won first overall at On Snow at Loon Mt. Loon did a great job, the race courses were excellent, Saturday dinner was good and the dancing was really interesting with snowcats grooming just outside next to the dance area.

New Snow: With this week’s new snow, many of our members were up North skiing. Many members were on the Sugarloaf trip organized by John Hunter this week. Great week to be off and up North!
