*** Meeting Place ***

 

Meetings are now held at Jameson’s Pub, 2755 Black Road, Joliet, in their private meeting room. 

Important Notice: Future meetings will be the third Thursday of the Month. .

They are not charging us for the room and there is no minimum food or drink purchase required. I would suggest that we patronize them by ordering drinks perhaps partaking a meal before the meeting.

 

Message From the President  by Jim Boisso

    Just got back from this year’s trip seminar. Have been thinking of an early December weekend trip to Sundown at Dubuque Iowa, will investigate a small bus of twenty-five or so skiers. Asked several tour operators for bids on Sun Peaks BC, Canada for the week of February 11 – 18, 2023. The mountain has just about doubled in size since our last trip to visit Nancy Green. Several other clubs where strongly considering the same location, but not sure of dates. We could always piggyback, partner with them, or just join their trip.

CMSC Spring Fling for 2023 will be at Park City Utah, April 1 – 6, 2023 more details to come. Chicago week in 2024 will be BANFF, BC, Canada February 24 – March 2, 2024, more details next year. So, make your plans, and have an idea of your selective hotel, the earlier we register the better our chance of being downtown.

The results of the board meeting: the membership fee for renewing members in good standing will be waved for the coming year, you will have to sign an application and waver, the financial report for CMSC Telluride trip accepted and approved, the June picnic was agreed upon and necessities started in motion. Please respond for the picnic via text, or by e-mail to Ron Dewey at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If he doesn’t hear from you, there will be no brats or dogs for you.

       Be Young at Heart.

P.S. be thinking about next years ski trips you may want to take with the club.

Your pres, Jim B.

Social Events by John & Annette Ruffner 

🌞 🌷 HAPPY SPRING🌷 🌞 

If we can’t ski, lets, do some other activities.    Ohhh, what a race at the Derby! 🐎

The race didn’t pan out for betting on the two horses that were likely to win, but I’m sure it was a surprise to almost everyone that, “Rich Strike” at 80 to 1 would come out of nowhere to win! That is horse racing!

So, with most of us being losers, we had delicious food and a good time, playing Euchre, dominoes, and some of us just enjoyed catching up with each other. Thanks everyone for bringing good eats, and John for making yummy Mint Juleps!

Ron was the winner of the trivia questions, answering 7 out of 14 correctly. His prize was a big candy bar!😋

Our Meet and Eat will be at La Mex on Jefferson, on June 2, at 6 pm. They don’t take reservations, but if I have a head count, I can let them know. Text or call me.

The Joliet Historical Museum Rooftop schedule is: Friday, June 17, 7 pm, with Rockin Johnny Burgin- Hepkats music, and on Saturday, June 25, 7 pm, Great Moments in Vinyl-Tom Petty music. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

We still haven’t found a website for the paddle wheel boat, but will keep looking. We’ll appreciate any suggestions for events.

             Looking forward to some good times with the Club!!!

 

🎿  Your Social Team,😜

T-Shirts

We have found a place to get t-shirts, sweatshirts etc! BIG FROG of Shorewood. at 1141 Brook Forest in Shorewood, right behind Portillos. They have numerous styles to choose from. Custom T-shirts shop for members to order shirts. Shirts can be purchased individually; from what they have in the store or they can also be ordered from a catalog. – we don't need a minimum order. They have our new logo on file – just go in and choose a shirt and decide where and how big you want the logo. Turn around time is usually 24 hours. Trot on over and see what you can find. Let's advertise our Club by wearing JSC shirts!
