picnic2017Left, Right, Center, Hold. No, it’s not the latest line dance or poker game. For those of you familiar with NSC, you know it’s the popular dice game of chance. A chance to win a tidy sum of cash with a $3 buy in and yours truly won. Luckily, I had $3 in my wallet. Thanks to all 17 participants who donated their $3 to the cause.

Saturday, June 24th was a beautiful afternoon visiting with friends and enjoying the wonderful pot luck. NSC members never disappoint when it comes to delectable eats: BBQ pork ribs, tri-tip, hot dogs, hot links, egg rolls, sashimi, fried chicken, sushi, assorted salads, noodles, dips, chips, summer fruits. And, it would not be a complete NSC event without dessert. Ono grids, absolutely Da’ Bes’.

Our president, Armand, conducted the annual meeting, recapped our ski season, detailed the upcoming 60th anniversary ski trip to Vail, and future Far West ski trips to France and South America. Frank Chang gave us the treasury report and the good news we are financially healthy. Karen Soo, our trip director, also gave her report for last season and the lack of enthusiasm to fill one bus! Come on people! It was an epic year — the likes of which will not be seen in a long, long time. But wait! You can still enjoy the ski season, because Squaw is still open every Saturday as long as conditions permit and Mammoth is open daily until August!

A big thank you to the members who work so hard to put on these great social events. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and volunteers to keep this wonderful organization going. Great job! Keep up the good work! The club will be 60 next year and may we continue for another 60 years!
