Deposit Your Money Here
By Jodee Pring, Board member
Hello everyone! Hope
you all have been out enjoying this great summer we are experiencing. But dont get too used to all the warm
weather. The snow is just around the corner!! And the Board has some AWESOME ski trips planned
for the 2006-2007 season!!
I want to let all of you know about a policy the Board has
instituted for this year concerning deposits. In
the past, when a member was interested in going on a ski trip with the club, a deposit was
made to hold that members spot on the trip. The deposit could be made any time prior to the
date of the trip, including at the annual Chili Supper.
Weve found that some folks signed up for too many trips too early,
ultimately creating uncertainty about final head counts for our trip captains, and refund
puzzles for the Board.
Well, this year, we are changing things up a bit. And here
is how it is going to work. The trip captains
for each of the trips will only accept deposits for their trip on the pre-designated
Deposit Open date. Those
Deposit Open dates coincide with our meeting dates (1st and 3rd
Thursday of the month) and are as follows:
Winter Park - October 21 (Chili Supper)
Jackson - November 2
Aspen - December 7
Vail - January 4
Arapahoe Basin - February 1
So what does this mean to you? This means that at the Chili Supper, you will be
able to make a deposit on the Winter Park trip only.
The trip captains for the other four trips will have an Expression of
Interest list for their trips. If you
are interested in any of the other trips, please put your name and phone number on that
list. Then when the Deposit Open
date comes up for the trip in which you are interested, you must pay the deposit to hold
your spot for that trip. Please be aware that
your name on the Expression of Interest list will not guarantee you a spot on
the trip. Only your deposit can do that. Then you must pay the balance of the trip cost by
the final payment due date.
The Board feels that this policy will provide ample time
and opportunity for you to plan for those ski trips throughout the year. Please also be sure to review the refund policy
that is given to you when you complete your membership form.
If you have any questions concerning this policy, please
feel free to contact me at 637-6944 or talk to any of your Board members.
See you October 21st!
