Austin Skiers Message Regarding
As of March 18, the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC) has recommended people not congregate in groups of 10 or more.
For this reason, Austin Skiers has suspended our Happy Hour & other Special Activities until it is safe to do so. The Texas Ski Council (TSC) canceled their annual Bid Meeting
originally scheduled for April 17-19 in Austin. (If you paid the registration fee
it can be refunded upon request to the TSC.) And finally, our Annual Membership
Meeting held on May 12, was conducted by virtual conference allowing
members to join via the Web or by phone.
Please know our Austin Skiers Board
will continue to keep our club running strong and provide updates via email,
Website, Facebook and Instagram.
Until we gather again, we encourage you
to follow the CDC guidelines, take care
and stay well.
