Welcome to the Pentagon Ski Club!
2020-2021 General Membership Meetings
In a normal year we hold monthly club meetings, on Tuesdays at 7 PM in Fort Myer's Patton Hall (the building formerly known as the Officers Club). (Exception is the picnic which is at the Spates Community Club.) Meetings are held from September through April, but we don't have a February meeting as the weather is a risk and many of us are off on ski trips anyway! We have no summer meetings other than our annual picnic.
This year is, of course, different, with the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we hope to hold club meetings this season, it will depend on the guidelines that Ft. Myer has in place. As of August 2020, Fort Myer was only hosting events for 50 or fewer people, and only after funeral services. It's uncertain when this policy might be relaxed. Regardless, it seems likely to remain unwise to have meetings such as ours where social distancing is a challenge.
That said, we've penciled-in some tentative dates with Ft. Myer; most are on
the 2nd Tuesday of the month:
Our meetings provide lots of complimentary hors d'oeuvres (essentially dinner) and a cash bar. New members are always welcome. Just let the welcome desk know you're new! Most meetings have a fun theme and club business is discussed, as well as (of course) upcoming ski trips. Door prizes are offered in a 50-50 raffle drawing, with the club's half of the proceeds going right back into buying more prizes for future meetings. Everyone can socialize, exchange photos from the latest trips, and share stories. Trip leaders are present, so you can sign up for trips or discuss trip details. Meeting themes have included a fashion show with the latest skiwear, ski safety, conditioning exercises, new ski equipment, costume contests, and ski trivia contests.
