The club had its 50th anniversary this year. To see the writeup for the anniversary party please to
DOLOMITE ITALY and AMSTERDAM NETHERLANDS Jan 21 – Feb 1, $2,720
Too much fun was had by all. The hotel accomodated us with live music, watching the Super Bowl, and our favorite watering hole after a hard day on the hills the Dolomite Bar.
Some ventured onto the glacier which was unique to see such a large mass of an ice sheet.
Finally we traveled on to Amsterdam to view the sites and celebrate a birthday. The Anne Frank house was interesting as well as the Guggenheim and Rijksmuseum Museums. The food was excellent and the fun was endless.
BIG SNOW, INDIANHEAD-BLACKJACK MT., JAN. 8-10, 2017 $275
Great time was had by all on our Big Snow trip. With a FULL bus & a fun ride up we arrived at Indianhead Lodge where we settled in then had a great time enjoying the music in the lounge. Breakfasts & dinner at the Lodge were wonderful. The next two days skiing/boarding were at Indianhead & Blackjack Mts. With new snow, the conditions were great, maybe a little cold but everyone played all day on the mountains. Our ride home was cheering the Packers on to a win. Thanks to all who attended the ski trip & supported your Clubs trip.
Sly Fox Ski & Snowboard ClubTurned 50!!
The 50th Anniversary was a great success. All those who joined in the bike ride, arrived back at Plamann for the beginning of social hour. The club had 86 member’s current and past signed on for the event. Thanks to Jane Kurath, there was an enjoyable montage of photo’s running throughout the event for everyone to watch. We also had a sneak peak at this year’s upcoming trips.
Prior to dinner our current Sly Fox President, Bruce Kettner, introduced Chris Dachelet, who regaled us with some stories from the history of fun in the club. Sam Fontaine took over the floor following Chris. Sam has been a past President of the Sly Fox six times in the last twenty-nine years he has belonged to the club. He is our trip leader on the European and Western trips. Sam had some great stories to tell as well. To wrap it up, Paul Buechner, another long-time member and former President, provided a short speech and we toasted all of our members who have passed on to skiing the mountains beyond.
Following the presentations, everyone enjoyed a full catered dinner. Post dinner door prizes were given away. Marie Wurdinger donated a couple ski hats, one specifically had the Sly Fox insignia. The piece de resistance was the 50/50 door prize which the club decided to split among two winners. The 50/50 winners were Taj Jordan and as luck with have it, Taj’s wife Bunny won the other half of the 50/50. Talk about luck. Congratulations to the Jordans. Following dinner and door prizes, many stuck around for the camaraderie and a chance to share memories and catch up with their lives. It was day to remember. An opportunity for old friends to gather and for all in attendance to look back at the good times that were, the present opportunity to make new acquaintances through a shared love of snow sports, and to look to the future plans and years ahead for the Sly Fox Ski Club.
