Thanks Volunteer Painters!

Painters

Thanks to the nine volunteers for the Pico Ski Club paint day on Saturday, June 7!

We accomplished a number of projects, including the front overhang as well as entrance ways, concrete walls, picnic table, wood racks, windows trimmed and touch up around the building. 

We still have approximately 30-40 hours of projects to be completed late summer/early fall, and will be announcing upcoming work days to accomplish these additional tasks.

Pico Ski Club Founding Member Erling Omland passes

Erling Omland – May 21, 1917 – September 6, 2014

It is with great sadness to report the passing of Erling Omland, one of the founding members of the Pico Ski Education Foundation. Erling was a pioneer in starting the Pico race program and volunteered years of his time to make us (the Pico Ski Club) what we are today.

Erling was a member of the US Army’s 10th Mountain Division during World War II and legendary in the world of skiing between his accomplishments, not only for our country and our club, but also with the Watchung Amateur Ski Club of New Jersey among others. Over the course of the past 10 years, I can recall countless times seeing him on snow and enjoying every minute of it. Skiing was a way of life for Erling, and so he chose to live it that way - skiing. He has been an Honorary Member of the Pico Ski Club and we owe him a debt of gratitude for all he’s done.

In his honor a memorial service will be held at the Andrea Mead Lawrence Lodge at Pico Mountain at 11 a.m. Saturday, September 27th. A fitting tribute for a great man.

 Michael Roussel – President, Pico Ski Club

VARA Awards Sami Rubin Betty Clayton Award

On behalf of the entire PSC coaching staff, I would like to congratulate Sami Rubin and her coach Chris Reynolds on her selection as the 2014 recipient of the Betty Clayton Award. 

The Betty Clayton Award is one of six Vermont Alpine Racing Association (VARA) Merit Awards given annually to deserving VARA athletes. This award is presented to a U21-U16 level athlete who has attained top results while participating in a club program. The selected athlete receives a $1,000 scholarship.

Sami will be presented with this award at the VARA Gala on November 8th at the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont.

Sami has been a top MVC racer over the years and this season proved to be no different. Sami produced great results in her first year racing as a U18. The U18-U21 racing circuit has a rigorous schedule that includes state, regional and national events. The U18-U21 circuit includes two season-long series, the Vermont Cup Series and the George Tormey Series, as well as a State Championship Series. These series are typically dominated by academy, collegiate and national caliber athletes. Sami's results are very impressive given that she is a club level athlete who is challenged with balancing school, training and racing and limited access to midweek training.

Thanks to all the Social Committee Volunteers this season!

As we know, volunteers are what makes the Pico Ski Club tick.  Without people pitching in, giving their time, and helping to make events happen, it wouldn’t be the organization it is.

Helen Kinsman and Linda Lambert, Social Co-Chairs, would like to thank the following members for their willingness to volunteer their time during the Harvest Social, Wine and Cheeses, Pot Luck dinners, and the Spring Fling events held this season.
