President’s Message  

Our second social event of the season was held on Saturday, October 14th  at the William Udicious Pavilion in Rush.  A big thank you to Bill and Bev McElheny for organizing the annual pig roast.  We wish to thank all of those who provided the wide assortment of appetizers and desserts, as well as those who helped set up and clean up.

There are still some openings on the three ski trips, although time is running out to secure a room.  The next event will be the Holiday Party, December 7, at the Burgundy Basin Inn. Pattie and Joe Kuby will be chairing it this year.  Don’t forget the Swain Ski & Chili Party January 1st. In closing, another exciting ski season is nearing hopefully with an abundance of cold weather and good snow. 

***Bob Pogel, Your President***

Ski Trip Coordinator Message 

Ski Trip Newsflash! There are still limited openings for all 2018 RSC trips, so what are you waiting for? Don’t miss out on all the fun this winter. Life is way too short, and we only have so many opportunities to share something we love, and create special memories with great friends. Remember- “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when and if you do.”  Also, I am now taking suggestions and requests for trips in 2019, and anyone interested in running a trip for the RSC, please contact me.

RSC’s Annual New Year’s Day Chili Party/Ski Day – Swain

Come help us celebrate the first day of 2018!  In the past couple of years we've had soup in addition to the chili ... and it seemed to be a big hit.  Please bring a light dish, snack, or dessert to pass.  The chili and soup should be ready around Noon.  The club provides beverages and plastic/paper products.  No sign-up is required.  Corinne and Larry Coon are looking for volunteers to bring a pot of soup or chili to the New Year’s gathering. They can be reached at 585-223-2881 or 585-704-6902.  We did have snow for skiing last year; so we are hopeful this year will be just as good for skiing!  Lift tickets are each person's responsibility.  We'll be there - snow or no snow!  As usual we will be located in one of the rooms above the rental shop.


Reports on past events:

Pig Roast – Saturday, October 14, 2017

This fall the annual RSC pig roast was held in Rush, N.Y. at the William Udicious Pavilion. The 87 members and guests found – great weather, great friends, great food, and a great time.  The afternoon began with a variety of appetizers including marinated sausages and meatballs, cheese trays, and other tasty hors d’oeuvres.
Throughout the afternoon, members were able to watch a DVD with some of our past ski trips and events.
Tom Mitchell, Jr of Old Mill Catering took care of the pig.  He provided samples of the roasted skin and of the pig.  Once the samples were given out, he displayed his art of carving.  The buffet also included potatoes, sauerkraut, baked beans, and various salads.  There was something for everyone.  The weather was so nice, some members chose to eat outdoors.  After dinner, members enjoyed coffee or tea, and a variety of yummy desserts.
I know Bev and Bill McElheny appreciate all of the help with the food preparation -- of the appetizers, the sauerkraut, and the desserts, and with all who help with set up including purchasing some of the beverages, and with the many members who pitch in during clean-up.

RSC November 2nd Dinner Meeting

Our first dinner meeting of the season was attended by 86 RSC Members who enjoyed a sumptuous buffet meal at the historic Daisy Flour Mill.  Members caught up with old friends and thought about their ski boots as Tim Hart, Masterfit Technician of “the Balanced Athlete” spoke about how your ski boots should fit.  Balancing is the key and our balance changes with age and injuries. Better ski boot fit means better ski control and better use of our ski edges. It was a fun evening in a beautiful setting.

Reminder for Future:  I need your reservations on time to give an accurate number to our banquet caterers. RSC is charged for the number I turn in so if you do not show the club is charged for your dinner.

Next reservation deadline is Feb. 14, 2018 . Heart     ** Sandy Foley**


Embroidered Rochester Ski Club Logo Information

If anyone is interested in having monogrammed club clothing and accessories embroidered with the Rochester Ski Club logo, here is the new place that is now doing it:  Apparel Printers Plus located at 67 Main Street, Victor, 14564 — just east of the town hall.  It is a father and son operation, Tim and Shane Maher.  Tim Maher is the Founder/President.  Their phone number is (585) 924-5118.  They were able to buy our "Murph" logo.  They have a full complement of clothing to choose from at the store, or from a catalog, or you can bring your own clothing.  The cost to embroider the “Murph”, our ski club logo, on an item you supply will be $7.75 . This is for one item at a time.  If we opt to do a group order the cost would be lower.  We look forward to working with Tim and Shane, and to continue to promote the Rochester Ski Club and “Murph”.



We hope Dick C. is feeling much better after his stay in the hospital.  Elise K. had shoulder surgery, Barb L. had her foot and ankle tendons taken care of so this is just a “prepare for ski season” thing and we hope all is well for now.  Bob A. had some chemo treatment which hopefully has cleared everything up.  We send our blessings to all and since it’s early enough, everyone should be doing well for the upcoming ski season.  Right?



Steve W., Korleen D. and Dave H.’s son passed away.  He had been ill for some time.  Micah E., Jeanne and Knobby’s son passed away.  Both these young men were in their prime but cancer got the best of them.  They will be sorely missed by their family and friends.  With Micah, the whole Swain Ski Patrol will miss his smiling face and devil take care attitude.  It’s very hard to understand when young men like this have to leave us.  Our sympathy to their families and friends.
