Annual Meeting/Activity

The clubs annual meeting/activity is February 6th at 6:00 pm in room 200C (room may change) of the lobby of the South Town Expo Center. This year we have pro skier Chris Rossi and the guys from Radar coming in to talk for 15 minutes or so about their products. 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, 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 (not will call), the information desk will have the club member list to verify your membership with a valid photo ID. Please send a e-mail to utahwaterskiclub@gmail.com by the 3rd to let the board know if you are coming or not and how many of your family will be eating 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/208830669300862/

The main reason for the annual meeting is to elect a new board, the board is ALWAYS in need of new people and ideas. If you want to be on the board in 2014 please e-mail scotchipman@gmail.com. The UWSC board only meets four times (sometimes only by e-mail) a year and does not pay annual 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 the club on mailing costs. Go to http://utahwaterski.blogspot.com/p/members.html for the details of how to renew on-line, you can still snail mail everything in but please do everything electronically if possible. Attached is the application and release form which you can fill out and sign electronically then e-mail to garnski@yahoo.com. Membership cards are good for various discounts at local retailers, club stickers are for your boat windshield ONLY so please make sure that is where they end up. 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.
