Keep your eyes out for a few e-mails in the next week to initiate sign ups for the Aspen, Mammoth Drive Up, and Jackson Hole trips. The deadlines to sign up for these trips will be relatively tight – due to the limited amount of time that we have before we incur cancellation charges on unused space. So if you are interested in any of these trips, please try to sign up as quickly as you can after you receive the trip announcement e-mail.
Payments for trips can be made online via the Arriba PayPal page. Mammoth trips and social events have their own payment buttons. The club is waiving PayPal fees for the Mammoth trips and social events.
All Out of State/Country trips can be paid using the Non-Standard Payment section at the bottom of the Arriba PayPal page. You can enter the initial deposit or you can pay for the entire trip. The PayPal 3.4% transaction fee will apply.
We are still working on a few details but the date will be Saturday, September 30. The venue is the home of Arriba members Robert and Ricardo located in Pico-Robertson. Check your inbox for the eVite with all the info.
The club is still busy during the summer with our social activities so keep a look-out for e-mails and eVites for our social events during the summer (you should have already received an e-mail regarding our trip to the Hollywood Bowl on July 29 and our trek out to Palm Springs pride in November).
And finally, the board is busy planning next years ski season and making other changes as well. We are making the membership renewal process more electronic – watch your e-mail inbox for an e-mail with all the details in a few weeks and please hold off on renewing your membership until this announcement is made.
It’s summer and time to head for the Beach. Join us for our annual beach outing at Will Rogers State Beach, which if you don’t know is just south of where Entrada ends at Pacific Coast Highway. Look for the Arriba banner on the sand near the southern most set of beach volleyball courts, just north of the beach club. The club will provide KFC and drinks. Please bring a side, snack or dessert to share. RSVP by June 23 to Rhonda at Social@arribaski.org
Our End of Season Party will be in Venice this time. Join us for some great company, good food and drink. The evite has already been sent out to all members. If you haven’t received the info, contact your social chair, Rhonda at Social@arribaski.org to get all the details.
We are pleased to announce our Aspen Gay Ski Week Trip. This is a four night trip, leaving Wednesday, January 18 and returning on Sunday January 22, 2017. This is your chance to experience the longest running gay ski week in America with its apres skis, comedy night, downhill costume contest, parties (including its fabulous pool party on Saturday night), and I almost forgot – great skiing in Colorado powder at 4 different resorts.
Please note that there will be only one chance to sign up – due to the short time between this announcement and the trip, the sign up deadline is November 11, just a few weeks away. I have attached a description of the trip and a sign up form to this e-mail. To sign up, e-mail your sign up form to Moises at email@example.com or mail your form to the Arriba P.O. Box (P.O. Box 69611, West Hollywood, CA 90069). Also, mail your deposit check, payable to the “Arriba Ski Club” to the P.O Box.
We are excited to start the new ski season with our annual Season Kick Off Party! Come hear about all the great trips we have planned for this season. We will be taking sign ups for trips so bring your checkbooks!
We are holding the party in the early afternoon to take advantage of the pool so bring your swimsuits and sunscreen. Also, seating is limited so please bring a beach chair to lounge on.
The club will provide a main dish (chicken) as well as drinks. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Evites have already been sent out. Please RSVP by September 26
