Thank you for allowing me the great experience of being President of Vail Club 50 for the last year. Not having a management background, it was a bit intimidating but with the help and advice of our Board things are pretty easy now and I’m looking forward to another great year with an amazing variety of social and sporting events.
Amongst the benefits of this last year was the opportunity to meet and interact with many new people. I have also attempted to attend as many social events as possible. I have learned the rudiments of budgeting and bookkeeping and best of all I have learned to use the resources available and delegate responsibility. In short, I’m not sure what I would have done with the time otherwise.
The highlights of the past year include a very successful Winter Kickoff/Sign-up Party with Mel’s great chili. We had a very elegant Holiday Gala. I really enjoyed the Game Night/Chili Cook-off in January. Then there was the Treasure Hunt and of course the fabulous End Of Winter blowout at Mango’s.
This summer the Solstice Party was very enjoyable. The Raft Trip was much fun and I even produced a real painting at Cocktails and Canvas.
As far as plans for this year other than a busy social and sports calendar we hope to continue to improve the digital interface with the membership. We are revising our bylaws to reflect the current Board membership and functioning. We will continue to carefully plan and budget events to use your dues as efficiently as possible.
As of October 1 we have some new Board members and some Board members are finishing their term. I would especially like to thank Ann Faison for doing an excellent job as Winter Social Director. Also Karen Gerhardt served us well as Web Designer and Secretary.
Have a great year, welcome to new Vail Club 50 members and please let me know if you have any positive or negative feedback on how to improve the functioning of the club.
