Sailing »

There will once again be summer sailing on the 31-foot sloop Phriendship Too for Club 50 members on Wednesdays and Thursdays weather permitting. Beginning in June David Thiessen is available to sail. Just contact him by phone or email (see club directory or email for contact info) to make arrangements. Bring your own snack and drink.

When the weather forecast indicates a potentially good sailing day, David usually asks Elizabeth Norris, our Club 50 communicator, to send out a group email indicating that possibility.  Once a sail is planned Dave always checks the weather before confirming with guests by phone. Dave’s motto: A pleasure shared is twice as enjoyable.

For contact info email and follow the instructions in the response.  You must RSVP to Dave Thiessen to participate in a sailing event.

Cross Country Skiing – Winter Season Events »

Unfortunately there’s no way we can set up local cross-country ski outings ahead of time since their so weather dependent.  You’re just going to have to get on the Club 50 Cross-Country Email List and then watch your email each time it snows to see if one has been scheduled.

To get on the list, contact, look in the auto reply under x county skiing for contact information and then be ready to join us when you get the call!
