Good Times Ski Club held its annual preseason Social Mixer at the Hartford Hill Winery in Fowler, OH on October 12, 2017. This event offered a chance for current members to get re-acquainted as well as for guests to learn more about our club. Light refreshments were provided, the annual business meeting conducted and the election of officers held. As in past club events, there was a great turn-out, and members and friends took full advantage of the opportunity to meet off-season and spend time together.
The Good Times Ski Club was well represented at the preseason parties at our local Quaker Steak and Lube restaurants. These events are sponsored by the Ski Chalet in Niles and are the "unofficial" start of the ski season for Mahoning and Shenango Valley residents. The first one was held at the original Quaker Steak & Lube restaurant in Sharon on November 16, and second event took place in Austintown on December 7. As always, great prizes were awarded, and attendees took time to visit the tables of ski clubs, sports retailers, and area ski resorts.
GTSC conducted its annual raffle for Free trips to the slopes in December, with winners being
chosen at the Austintown Quaker Steak and Lube's preseason party in early December. First Prize of THREE FREE DAY TRIPS ($240 value), second prize
of TWO FREE DAY TRIPS ($160 value), and third prize of ONE FREE DAY TRIP ($80 value) for the upcoming season were awarded.
All funds raised by this raffle are used to subsidize the cost of our midweek trips
Successful 1st annual 3-club picnic: Close to 70 members of Warren and Youngstown Ski Clubs joined Good Times Ski Club members on Wednesday, August 2 for our first summer beach party on Lake Milton. GTSC member Ken Franklin hosted us at his lakefront cabin and pavilion for a day of commaderie and kayaking, boating, swimming, and water skiing. Attendees brought food to share and the club provided hot dogs and hamburgers for all in attendance. A heavy rain storm prevented attendees from evening boat rides and swims, but the roomy indoor pavillion provided everyone with the shelter needed to dodge the storm.
SEEKING NEW MEMBERS AND TRIP TAKERS
New members pay only $10.00 for Club Dues
We provide this first-year incentive because we believe that once a snow sport enthusiast experiences the advantages of midweek trips, they will return for many more. New members pay just $90.00 the first trip they attend - $80.00 for that day's trip plus annual membership dues of $10.00. Now, as members of the Good Times Ski & Snowboard Club they can attend all future trips at member cost of $80.00.
Existing members pay $20.00 for membership if paid prior to December 31, 2017, and $25.00 after that date. Members can earn discounts by inviting others along. For each new member a member brings on a trip he/she earns a $10.00 discount in the cost of that trip. For example, bring three guests, cut your price by $30.00, and the trip costs you only $50.00 to attend. Many people find that by bringing a friend along the guest's membership will be covered by the member's discount.
