Winter Tennis and Whitefish trips came out in the black. That's good for Sitzmark. Fiscal year closes end of May at which time taxes are due! Peter Leuthold, T-Th summer tennis already started. Wednesday tennis starts in May when the weather gets warmer. Kennedy. Summer pickle ball needs a new location due to renovations. Looking into Sitzmark Summer Golf? Julie Bromley and John Olson attended MTS. Overall, clubs report the newsletter is important. Can we please pass out our hand printed advertisements at events? It depends on the event who is available to recruit for new memberships? There is a natural ebb and flow of members. We are talking about web design, calendar and newsletter (2-pager) for better commnication. We need some help with these tasks. Volunteers?!! Dennis and Bob will look for web development volunteers. The travel show in May wasn’t getting any new business for Paul Weber group and therefore, is cancelled. Let’s get some flyers published to hand out for new members. Let’s promote membership at Randy’s golf event. Other thoughts and comments are invited. Summer picnic is a good event with members only and discounted membership! The Stillwater Cruise on the St. Croix is a good meeting place. Bo Bondy reports our summer cruise is great. This year it is $34.95 for the event. That way, we don’t need to book our own boat or catering. The Lake Minnetonka is $46.95 each. Susan and Bo are thinking about the Poker Run trip. It is a Stillwater pub crawl. April 22 is The Lookout in Maple Grove, May 13 night out at Loui’s, top floor of Cosetta’s. June 17th Lord Fletchers. July 15 St. Croix Cruise. August 12 Maynard’s in Excelsior.

MSC asking for Sportster news. Utah and Norway submitter to Alice. Club news needs to be written. Councils are important valuable to bring many groups together to share in activities. Places with no snow have great councils because that’s where members go to get “Winter News”. The councils bring exposure for all the clubs to each other. It pulls many ski groups together.
