The holidays are upon us and I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It sure was great to have Black Friday stretched out to a week, with more or less normal traffic in the stores instead of the usual crowds! Jackson Hole opened on Thanksgiving, with Steamboat a couple of days later, and all the major New England areas are open if you're going north for the holidays. We had a nice afternoon and a great turnout on November 20 for the Stream Cleanup on the Tenmile Creek Greenway. The December happy hours are on Friday, December 3 at Brother Wolf in the Old City, and on December 17th at Mind Yer Ps & Qs Wine Bar on Kingston Pike. The Crescent Ski Council Spring Convention will be held in-person April 21-24, and will again be at Kingston Plantation in North Myrtle Beach. See the latest Fall Line for details on all these events. Finally, we are looking for a volunteer to be Programs/Special Events Chairman to organize programs for our general meetings and other events of interest to KSOC members. Program Chairmen are members of the KSOC Board of Directors and receive complimentary Club dues. All it requires is attending monthly Board meetings and making a few phone calls and handling any needed logistical details for two or three events each year. See me or any other club officer at a happy hour if you are willing to help with this. Also, please let us know if you have ideas for programs or events.
