  • No December Meeting. Next SNC-CDS Meeting will be January 13th at 6:30PM at Tamarack Junction.

Seasons Greetings!

As I write this we are getting our first "real" snow of the season. How exciting! While its not so great for riding, for those of us stuck outside, it sure does put us in the holiday mood! And speaking of holidays… By now everyone should know about The Annual Holiday party coming up this Thursday December 1st at 6pm at the Tamarack Junction. The dinner menu looks fantastic and the facility is great. Thank you so much to Lesley Grove for her hard work in putting this together!

The Annual Meeting is coming up soon as well which means SNC will be working on the chapter basket to take to the meeting. Every year the various chapters of CDS take baskets of goodies to be presented and auctioned. Proceeds from the baskets go to the Travel Grant Fund.

In the past we have asked members to donate gift items for the basket. This year, we agreed that the chapter would purchase items for the basket and ask members for monetary donations in place of gift items. We will be accepting monetary donations at the Holiday Party. If you are unable to attend but would like to donate, please send a donation to the PO Box above along with a note designating the monies to go towards the chapter basket.

Newly Elected….2006 Board of Directors!

Our November meeting was very well attended. Thank you again to Lesley for setting us up at the Tamarack Junction. The room was perfect! The minutes have been posted to the site for members to review at their leisure. The highlight of the meeting was the election of the 2006 Board of Directors. The 2006 Board is as follows:
