PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE March 2017
As the current ski season comes to a close, I would like to urge all of you to plan to attend the next and final ‘official’ meeting of the year. Scheduled for Tuesday, March 21st. Not only is it an occasion to enjoy the company of your fellow members and share a meal together, it is also an opportunity to help chart our clubs future. New officers are slated to be elected at this meeting. They will be responsible for setting the tone and administering the organization in the coming season and beyond. We need committed people to lead us. So if you feel as I do, and want to see CASTA continue to be a viable vehicle for promoting our enjoyment of X-Country skiing, then your attendance is mandatory.
As a first year president I would like to thank all of my fellow officers for their support and guidance. Thanks as well to everyone who has volunteered, from trip leaders, to those who have organized and executed our potluck get togethers, to those who have worked to promote the club. Thank you one and all for your commitment to the spirit of CASTA.
It is my firm belief that with all of us participating together, our organization will realize a renaissance of financial stability, expanded participation, and an expanded slate of experiences for all of our members, including both in season and off season activities. One last word to all of you. If you value, as I do, what CASTA provides us all, your increased participation in the inner workings of the club are needed in order to continue and enhance the fun and fellowship which the club has provided to all of its members now for over 40 years.
