Annual Meeting/Activity

Dear UWSC Member,

The clubs annual meeting/activity is February 7th at 6:00 pm in room 200C of the South Town Expo Center. All club members including immediate family members will be given free entrance into the boat show after the short meeting that will be over by 7:00 pm at the latest, a light meal will be served starting at 6:00 pm. If you would like to go into the boat show before the meeting go to the information desk and give them your name for a ticket, the information desk will have the club member list to verify your membership with a valid ID card. Please reply back to the e-mail you were sent by the 5th to let the board know if you are coming or not and how many of your family so that the board can plan the proper amount of food. You can also RSVP on the club's facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/498298470200640

The main reason for the annual meeting is to elect a new board, the board is ALWAYS in need of new people. If you want to be on the board in 2013 e-mail scotchipman@gmail.com. The UWSC board only meets four times (sometimes only by e-mail) a year and does not pay dues.

All members are strongly encourage to pay their membership dues of $125 ($25 for emeritus members) before the annual meeting so we can give you your membership card and boat sticker which saves on mailing costs. Go to http://utahwaterski.blogspot.com/p/members.html for the details of how to renew with the NEW on-line option, you still can snail mail everything in but please do everything electronically if possible. The application and release form can fill out and sign electronically then e-mailed to garnski@yahoo.com. Membership cards are good for various discounts at local retailers, club stickers are for your boat windshield. If you still need to renew your USA Water Ski membership you can do it on-line at http://www.usawaterski.org/pages/Join.html remember to send the USA Water Ski conformation e-mail to garnski@yahoo.com as well.

Sincerely, 
UWSC Board
