After our consumption of the fine food provided, our program consisted of a few appropriate jokes and other commentary. And of course our resident Irishman, Pat Ryan, aptly related a hilarious Irish joke. Typically this skier provides us with a joke of the week to entertain us at our coffee breaks. At such an event we make it a point to recognize special people in our community. Once again we recognize Pret Goslee (soon to be 95) as our most senior member. And we too recognize his wife Nita as another one of our skiing heroes.
Last year I was awarded the First Flake Award in honor of being a geezer most likely to be on the slope almost every day of the week. This year's recipient was Tom McCarthy. To our regret Tom on Wednesday became hospitalize with a medical issue and was unable to attend. We hear that his surgery was successful and we look forward to seeing on the slope next year. He is a most intrepid skier who is almost always the first on the lift in the morning. In his inimitable style he will cruise the slope with tenacity.
We were pleased that owners Marc and John were in attendance at our lunch too. As a part of the program they graciously heard kudos and gripes from the assembled geezer group. Our emphasis was on both praise and suggestions for improvement of the skier experience. In turn Marc and John had an opportunity to inform us of the challenges they face in making the business a success both for them and for us.
As a community, I believe we parted in good humor with full stomachs and enthusiasm for finishing a great season of skiing. We look forward to another great year for 2015-2016. Now is the time to purchase next year's season pass.
