Ski Day

ALCON,


We are on short and final for the Heritage Ski-In event on Friday, 19 Feb 2016 at Ski Cooper.  We need to get a headcount for the luncheon, help people out with ski gear if required, and we need to offer a carpool spot to those who need transportation to Leadville.

 

ACTION REQUESTED:

Is you plan to attend the event, RSVP by sending a message to SFA Events under Contacts.  If you would like to get a ride via a car pool, mention that on your RSVP. If you are willing to drive and take some people up with you, mention that on your RSVP.

COORDINATING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. If anybody has in their possession Group-issued ski kit that could be loaned to a member who needs it, reply to this email with what items you can loan out.  Items could include military skis, ski boots, over whites, etc.

2. If anybody needs to borrow any of the kit mentioned in item #1 above, include that on your RSVP.

3. SHOWTIME at Ski Cooper:  Recommend you show at Cooper Mountain, Leadville between 0900 and 1000 on Friday, 19 Feb 2016.  The not-later-than time for participating in the ski down procession is to be at the top of the main
lift in front of the Main Lodge NLT 1130 hours.  The procession will commence at 1200 hours.  For those who haven't done the drive it is approximately 2.5 hours on dry roads with good weather from Colorado Springs to Ski Cooper.

4. Once we have some numbers to work with as far as carpooling, we will identify drivers/groups and link folks up.

Website Updates

I've been rather busy on a number of projects, one of which was updating this site.

Late last year there were issues with the site which required a rebuild. That rebuild has been completed.

I have removed the Guestbook because it was not being used by legitimate individuals, mostly spambots and the like. Use the Contact Form under Command & Signal > Contact Us, or Facebook.

I moved the How To Join to the main page.

The Archives have been re-populated.

The photo gallery was also dropped.
