Big Sky -  April 4 - 11  The Ultimate Spring Ski Trip!! Spots still open!!

We fly into Boseman, Montana via Delta Airlines and a short ride by bus to Huntley Lodge.  The lodge offers hotel-style accommodations with ski-in/ski-out access to the resort, and a complimentary FULL breakfast. The 7-day trip includes air, transportation, lodging, and 5 days of lift tickets. The price is $1,599 with lift tickets and $1,309 without. We have a total of 20 spots for this trip. The second payment will be due December 3rd. Contact Bev McCain at bevmcca57@yahoo.com for more information.

This year as an option, we will be offering our trip packages both with and without lift tickets (OVSC trip excluded). While we call them ski trips, we think that even those who don't ski would enjoy the fresh air, gorgeous vistas and special camaraderie that we skiers have experienced for years. We think we have a great bunch of trips this year that will appeal to both the hard core among us as well as the more casual skier and those who are simply interested in the beautiful scenery and social aspects. And remember, with Columbus Ski Club ski trips all you have to do is show up to the airport and we do the rest!!
 


CSC Ski Race Team:  Get ready for the 2014 - 2015 Season! Sign-Ups will continue through December.   Want to improve your skiing? Join the Race Team. 
Orientation for Ski Race Team will be Friday November 14 starting at 6:30 PM for new racers and returning racers at the Rusty Bucket (up stairs) just off 315 at Worthington Hills.    

Bowling

Bowling season is coming soon! The cost is $174 per bowler, with signups beginning November 5. We will again be bowling at the Palace Lanes (Cleveland Ave. & Rt. 161) on Sundays  beginning January 4, 2015. This is a fun, social, handicap league which lasts 13 weeks. The fee covers bowling (but not shoes), awards, prizes and a banquet at the end.  Teams consist of 3 men & 2 women or 3 women & 2 men. Sign up as an individual, part of a team, or as a full team.  We'll have pot lucks during the season and bar service is available. This is a great way to spend those dreary winter Sundays.

This show is a complete sell-out every year, so come early to the meeting to choose your table! 

 

You can also come early for cocktails and dinner at additional expense. Seating for dinner will begin at 5:30 pm and there will be a menu with many choices rather than a buffet, with prices for any budget. There are many appetizers, salads, sandwiches and full meals available to satisfy everyone! If you choose to come later, after 6:30 pm, no worries, you can still order food, but the show will start promptly at 7:30 pm.

 

This year's show will once again be emceed by Dino Tripodis from Sunny 95 as he has for the last 29 years! The line-up features the nation's best touring and most popular comedians!

NO Credit cards! Each and every year the show's proceeds all go to CHARITY.
