<<From the Executive Committee>>
Whereas the COVID pandemic has made the work of the Vice President of Trips an order of magnitude more difficult than in any previous year,
Whereas in carrying out the duties and responsibilities of this position, Elisabeth Poigin has selflessly and faithfully donated immeasurable time, skill, counsel, dedication, and service far beyond all expectations, and
Whereas Elisabeth Poigin is retiring to her native France and may less enjoy the fellowship and adventure she has shared in Austin Skiers,
Now be it resolved that Elisabeth Poigin is hereby granted a lifetime membership in Austin Skiers, with all honors and privileges pertaining thereto.
A motion passed unanimously by the Executive Board, this 17th day of April 2021.

TSA issues NEW COVID-19 Rules
for Air Travel
In a press release on January
31, 2021 pursuant to an Executive Order, the TSA latest change
is requiring all passengers over the age of 2 to wear face masks. There are
penalties for those failing to comply - they will be prevented from entering
the screening area, and “the TSA will recommend a fine ranging from $250 for
the first offense up to $1,500 for repeat offenders.” The order became
effective February 2, 2021 through at least May 11, 2021. This follows the issue of a Federal Register notice (PDF) by the CDC effective February 1, 2021 regarding "wearing of face masks while on conveyances and at transportation hubs."
