Myrtleford Ski Club Christmas 2015

Membership Fees
Annual subscriptions become due just after the AGM on November 1, so are now due and must be paid by 31st March. 
If you use an automatic payment to the club for your fees could you alter this to the end of the first week in November as earlier payments have caused difficulties for the Treasurer due to the subscriptions changing at the AGM.  This creates the need to follow up for the extra amounts.
In future years, the club will endeavour to send an invoice to all memberships (that have an email address) in the time between the AGM and November 1.
This year’s invoice was sent out a few days ago, if you did not receive this please send an email to the Secretary --  .
For those members who do not have an email address the annual subscription fees are:
Family Membership $220.00
Single Membership $110.00
Family Associate $160.00
Single Associate $80.00
Junior $50.00
Tub Hire (If applicable) $10.00 / Tub

Professional cleaning trial
Brett asked for ideas and comments regarding the trial we had implemented over the winter season.
Points made:
  • Due to the rush in/rush out nature of the cleaners and that it was only on two days that the managers might be better utilized in this.
  • Managers could do the same tasks but on an ‘as needs’ basis rather than just two days a week.
  • The managers had been seen cleaning when it was required on some of the days that the cleaners were not scheduled.
  • At the committee’s request the manager’s had maintained a comprehensive cleaning log which they presented to the committee as part of our end of season report and debrief.
  • The additional cleaning was due to some members not doing their chores.  This has been a perennial problem and the managers may need to play a role here.
  • After the winter season and also just prior to the next winter season the club should have the lodge professionally (and thoroughly) cleaned.
  • The committee would be seeking feedback from the all members in the form of an email/survey
Members not doing chores
In a follow up discussion on the issue of some members and guests still not doing their chores the following points were made about this problem:
  • Agreement that the manager’s needed to take a role in this
  • Further that there needed to be some support regarding discipline through the constitution
  • The constitution is currently under review and that this would be considered as part of this process.
"It is better to go skiing and think of God, than go to church and think of sport". 

Merry Christmas from the Myrtleford Ski Club Committee, and may this new year bring you joy and laughter. To be happy is the greatest wish in life.

Until Next Time.
