        A note from our President

        The Ann Arbor Ski Club '23-24 season began with the Corn Roast on Sunday, August 27. It was fun to see new and old faces at the Ypsi Freighthouse. I am excited about all the different trips, parties, and other things the club has planned this year.

        I personally want to thank our Board of Directors for taking the time for the club. As all positions are volunteer, it is great that the Board has given many hours to keep the club going. A shout out to all our Returning Members as well. The club was founded in 1954 and will be celebrating its 70th year next year! That would not be possible if there weren't people in the club volunteering and helping out behind the scenes. Also, a big welcome to our New Members. We are a group of active minded individuals that want to welcome you to our many activities and events. If you ever have a question about the club or want to help in any way, please feel free to contact me through our club email at

         What does your $30 membership fee go toward?

        • Club Insurance
        • Website
        • Storage Locker
        • Food and Drinks at Meetings & Parties
        • Bartender At Meetings & Parties
        • Financial Backing for Trips (i.e., Trip Deposits. Ttrips are self-funded, but club money holds the spaces until people pay)
        • Financial Backing for Room Deposits and future events.

        There are more but those are the major costs. So, we need members to keep doing what we are doing, which is having fun, getting together, going to cool places, and having awesome local events. That is why you are important  So thank you for making the Ann Arbor Ski Club rock!

        Corn Roast Recap

        We are off to a great start of the 23-24 season with an incredible Corn Roast party August 27! 

        A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped out both on the committee and the day of the event.  There were over 50 volunteers from the club that helped make it a success.  A special thank you to Ken Shannon "our Corn Czar"  and the core corn roast planners and implementers: Anne Gilbert, Lisa Salisbury, Vicki Watson, Janet Starr and Jeff Overmire.  The party ran smoothly thanks to you and your hard work.

        People loved the Ypsi Freighthouse with its nostalgic vibe and great location.  The Halloween party will also be at this great venue.  Details on our club website.

        Next issue: Wednesday, September 27.
