Announcing Second Annual 4-club Picnic: After our first picnic saw close to 70 members of Warren and Youngstown Ski Clubs joining us for our first summer beach party on Lake Milton, we decided to do it again. GTSC member Ken Franklin will again host us at his lakefront cabin and pavilion for a day of commaderie and kayaking, boating, swimming, and water skiing. Members of Warren, Youngstown, and Shenango Ski Clubs are invited to attend. Bring a dish to share, a beach chair and beverage of your choice, and the GTSC will provide the drinking water, hot dogs and hamburgers. Attendees are welcome to bring kayaks, Paddleboards or other items for water fun. Party begins at 3:00 and will wrap around around 10:00. Address for the event is: 1510 NE River Road, Lake Milton, OH
OVERNIGHT TRIP a Great Success
We headed back to the Seneca Allegany Casino for a two day trip Wednesday, Feb. 7th and Thursday, Feb. 8th, 2018. We skied Holimont on Wednesday and Holiday Valley on Thursday, leaving for home at 6 pm that evening. This trip was Co-Sponsored by the Warren Ski Club and well attended by members of both clubs.
The weather was wonderful, the slope conditions perfect, and the company fun-loving as well as exhausted from non-stop, top-to-bottom ski runs both days.
Plan to join us next season for our next fun-filled midweek ski trip.
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
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.
