    • ImmunoChemistry Technologies, 9401 James Avenue South #155, Bloomington, MN 55431

    Learn how to create and manage events using Sitzmark's website. Our new website is working great, and now it's time for more comprehensive training for our trip chairs and event coordinators how to manage events and payments using our new WildApricot website and credit card payments thru AffiniPay. Sally Hed Dahlquist will teach you how to create an event, add people, and collect payments. This session is targeted for board members and event coordinators. Bring your laptop so you can start exploring the website immediately and edit events.  Be prepared to learn and work! Although it will be fun, this is not a social event - it's time for business! The business of running the club. This is a joint event with MSTC and TCRC who will also have their event coordinators attending. This is held at Sally's work. Show up after 530 to log in and we'll get started by 6. We will have a projector so everyone can see Sally's computer screen. Potluck. Bring a snack or dish to share.

    Join Sitzmark and other MSC members on a day trip to Duluth to Spirit Mountain (www.spiritmt.com)  and/or Glensheen Mansion ( Glensheen Mansionin Duluth for an incredible price! Nonmembers may attend for $10 more. (This is just a few dollars more than the box office price adult weekend lift tickets!) This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket (or museum), deluxe coach bus ride, a healthful breakfast on the bus and snacks (hard-boiled eggs, bagels, bananas, meat, cheese, orange juice, and granola bars). 

    New for 2020: Lessons are just $5 with a group of 8 but we need to reserve in advance! Rentals are available for an extra fee ($xx skis or boards). More details to come.

    Kinda New for 2020: Last year we added an excursion to Glensheen Mansion for a few people who didn't want to ski, so we're planning to do it again this year. It takes 1.5 to tour the mansion, so you can do it in the morning or afternoon.I f you don't get a ski lift ticket, I'll pay for your mansion ticket.

    We'll leave at 730am and you can board the bus as early as 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the southwest side of the complex, by 35W - see map!). Feel free to get cozy and spread out as we'll have a nice group around 50 people.

    We’ll leave at 730 am and serve breakfast once we get rolling; we plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am and ski from 10-530pm. If you don't want to ski, the bus will drop you off at Glensheen or other tourist destination in Duluth in the morning or afternoon. We'll chat on the bus to see who's going where. There are no official chaperones if you leave Spirit Mt. Sally will adjust your ticket price if you don't need a lift ticket.

     We will be in the Slopeside Room on the lower level next to the hill (like 2019). Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the room to get your lift ticket from Sally and Nancy, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). (We will have a server from 1130am-2pm so you can order lunch.) Pick up your rentals and arrange lessons. For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 530 pm for a 6pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 830pm. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online or contact Sally to arrange for other payments (like cash or check at the Holiday Party).Pictured: Mike, Avis, Greg, Nancy, and Dennis did a puzzle in our private room.

    Organized by Sally Hed Dahlquist, sally@immunochemistry.com 612-554-0864; co-hosted by Nancy Peterson 507-206-7882 of Traverskis

    PS: If you are not a member of an MSC club and paid the member price instead of the nonmember price, you will have to pay me an additional $10 on the bus or join Sitzmark for $25. If you paid the nonmember price and sign up to join the club on the trip, I will refund the $10 difference to you. If you don’t know what clubs I’m talking about (www.midwestfun.org), you should have paid the non-member price, so bring $10 extra bucks. We’re glad you are joining us!
