Suddenly a Golden Opportunity for a Spontaneous Member!

Trip Leader Joe Knopp reports that a room on the Traverse City trip has become available. 

Joe will hold onto the room until Wednesday, 4-SEP.  One or several members are invited to take advantage and become late a addition to the Peninsula Pedal and Pour Bike Trip on the Leelanau Peninsula, Friday September 13 through Sunday the 15th.

The room has two Queen beds.  Joe must release the room by week end.  Contact Joe ASAP if interested.  To get the double occupancy rate come with a roommate!

The weather was awesome.
As were the dishes brought to be passed.
As was the crowd!

Four Ski Trips Opened for Registration

Telluride, Colorado
Davos, Switzerland
Breckenridge, Colorado
Ogden, Utah

Telluride surprised no one and filled on the first day of registration.   The other three trips reached half full with strong interest across the membership for the remaining slots.

Friends Came!

Old ones and new friends too.  One hundred ninety members and friends joined the party.

Thirty members re-enrolled for another year.  Eleven new members joined at the Roast.  (Eight more newbies joined in the several weeks prior plus five this week.)

Members Raffled...

... and no one got hurt.  [Bada-Boom Clang!]

The following A2SC partners generously donated to our raffle, which revived our gambler instincts...

...at least on this run!

Maplewood Lanes Bowling
Powder Mountain
Sports America

Twenty-two friends and members walked away with prizes!
