The club plans social activities throughout the year, but its primary focus is organizing group ski trips. Open to anyone that likes to ski or snowboard, we're always looking for new members.

THE LATEST NEWS & NOTES -
Upcoming Dates & Events:
** This Sunday (March 9th) at Pinehurst Park!
Join us this Sunday afternoon (March 9th) from 1 pm to 3 pm for an afternoon of winter fun at Pinehurst Park. Bring your skates, sleds, tubes, skis, snowshoes, or just plan to sit and enjoy the free hot cocoa provided by the city park department. See the completion of "Phase 1" of the park renovation. The city has a wood burning fire pit to enjoy and there is also a warming house on site with restrooms available. This outing replaces the regular March meeting.
Directions - From old Hwy. 53 take Eddy Lane east to Delbert Road. Turn right on Delbert Road. Delbert is one block beyond the Locust Lane Elementary School.
*** "Volume One" and "Leader Telegram" Feature Articles -
On page 30 of the Dec. 19th edition of "Volume One" there's a nice Red Eye Ski Club feature interview (and photo) with Trip Coordinator Dave White. You can see the online version of that "Volume One" article by clicking this link. On adjacent page 31 there is an equally interesting feature article about the winter recreation developments at Pinehurst Park. On Saturday Jan. 4th, the Eau Claire "Leader-Telegram" ran a wonderful feature story about the Red Eye Ski Club. If you missed that one, it's available on the Leader-Telegram website archive page.
*** NEW VERSION "Ski Trip Packing - 303" available -
The "Ski Trip Packing" presentation at the January meeting was extremely well received, and many requested that Power Point be made available on our website. Here's the link - <SKI TRIP PACKING 303>
*** The "Pinehurst Project" -
With the abundant early snow fall and some great media publicity, the sledding interest at the renovated Pinehurst Park has been phenomenal. It's very rewarding to see the great public response. It's obvious now that this project was long over due. Corporate sponsorships continue to build so there is every reason to believe that Phase-2 plans will become a reality next summer. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, you need to. Red Eye members volunteer efforts and financial contributions have been greatly appreciated. Project fund raising is on going, and donation site links can be accessed through their website at http://pinehurstpark.org/ . You can also follow the project's progress on their Facebook page.

*** Midwest Sport & Ski Council -
The Red Eye Ski Club is affiliated with the Midwest Sport & Ski Council. This brings our members access to a number of benefits through the MSC. Click the MSC logo below for a link to their website, which includes an online version of the "Sportster".
