October News

October is one of my favorite months with the temperatures dropping off at night and the fall colors. This month I’ll be spending a lot of time camping deep in the woods unwinding. Another thing I enjoy is gathering with all of my Schussmeister buddies at our Fall Kick Off events. If you haven’t purchased your tickets for OKTOBERFEST you better hurry, tickets at the door are an extra $10.00. Buy your tickets on our new website and save the money for a few Octoberfest beers.

New Website
Tim Todd has put together a great new webpage for us. It’s easy to navigate, find information, join the club and get tickets to events. Give it a try and let us know what you think. https://skimich.com

We are excited to announce that the Schussmeister Shop is now open for business! Our first bulk order will end on Friday, November 8 and will be ready for you to pick up at the New Member Party on December 7th. Visit https://shop.skimich.com/ now to grab your Schussmeister gear.

Warren Miller
Tickets are on sale for our Warren Miller event on November 23rd at University of Michigan’s Kiva Theater in Flint. We are having two shows. The first at 2:00 followed by a second show at 5:00. This year we’re selling both general admission tickets for $15 and student tickets for $10. College students will be required to show a student ID.  Younger students will not.  I’m excited about the Kiva Theater. It’s a very nice facility with lots of parking available. Get your tickets now.

Halloween Party
This year in addition to our costume contest we will also have Schussmeisters’ Family Feud! Get your team together! Host Ken LaBelle will be using the surveys taken by members at the last fall meeting. Teams will have to determine the top answers to win the cash prize. Entry cost is $5 per person with four players per team. Don’t have a team, not a problem. We’ll help you gather a team at the party. “Survey says” this will be a fun time!
There will also be prizes for best couple and best individual costume.

Mt Holly
The Schussmeisters have enjoyed a great relationship with Mt Holly over the past 58 years. Mt Holly provides us with discounts and use of their facilities for which we are deeply indebted. It has been brought to my attention by Mt Holly’s management that some of our members have been pouring their own drinks under the table in the Lift Lounge. Be warned if you get caught pouring they will ban you from the lounge.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Oktoberfest party. Bring your A game for cornhole, we’ll have four boards going for the single elimination tournament. 5.00 per team registration with cash prizes for 1st – 3rd places.
