Ski Club

Ski Club

The A.G.m was held in April, and the following officers were elected:
President Dave Howden
Secretary Dave ("Doc") White
Treasurer Nigel Gould

One important outcome of this meeting was its decision for the club to buy or lease a truck for transport to and from Mt Ruapehu. This will be a great improvement on the former hiring of a furniture van each weekend.

A spectacular wine and cheese, and an equally spectacular Masquerade Ball, have been recent functions. Also, a work party was held over Queen's Birthday weekend to prepare the hut for the coming season. The Vic Hut offers carpeted bunkrooms, and a large common room (complete with romantic stove fireplace), together with other excellent facilties.

The gym staff and members of the club have been giving free "learn to ski" lessons in the Gym. The times for these are as follows:
Beginners: Monday 12pm.
Tuesday 1pm.
Friday 1pm.
Intermediate and advanced: Monday 5pm.
Tuesday 5pm.
Wednesday 5pm.
Friday 5pm.

There Is also a "Get Fit For Skiing" class held every Thursday at 5pm.

Each year a Ski team from he club is sent down to Ski tournament, which this year is being held in the Canterbury Range area, (probably the Porter Heights Field), during the second week of August Vacation. The Vic Club has a fine record in Ski Tournament and we naturally want to keep this up. Any persons interested in racing for Vic please contact Phil Jones. Remember: fitness is a prerequisite for Ski racing, so intending racers should be in training now.

Any enquiries about the Ski Club and its activities should be directed to Box 5141, Wellington.
