Are You Ready for Winter?
Now that Labor Day has passed, summer is giving way to fall and the next thing we know it will be winter. Are you ready for the upcoming snow season? I’ve got a new pair of skis/bindings and boots that I picked up at the end of last season. So, yes, I am ready. Well, almost ready. The bindings still need to be mounted on the skis and the boots adjusted to the bindings. Then, I’ll be ready.
If you need new equipment then starting in October is when the ski shops start having some sales for last year’s inventory. And then, in November, there are the annual Snow Bomb shows in San Francisco and San Jose. These events offer great deals on ski and snowboard equipment, clothing and accessories, plus it’s like attending a great big party. There will be more details on the Snow Bomb shows in future newsletters.
Was that a great picnic we had last month? There must have been at least 50 people wandering around sampling a variety of foods, talking with old friends, and enjoying what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny afternoon in Sunnyvale. Many thanks to Karen Soo for organizing the event and to Curtis Otaguro as chef extraordinaire on the BBQ. And a special Thank You for all of the members that attended and made this a great event.
