Question: Why did you join All Seasons?
I joined All Seasons because my husband does not ski and I have only a couple girlfriends that do so I am seeking out other folks with whom I can hit the slopes. Also, I'm a relatively new skier so I'm hoping more days on the slopes will help me to advance. Special interests: Within the club, I'd be interested in community service projects.
Outside of the club, I'm passionate about wine, I dabble in black & white photography, and I'm training for my first 1/2 marathon.
Question: Why did you join All Seasons?
I joined the club to network and get to know other people of color who enjoy the outdoors. I am very interested in hiking, biking and camping. I am a novice so I look forward to learning how to hike and camp correctly and safely and have a great time doing it.

The NBS had decided NOT to set up a conference rate for airfare for Summit '07. As the trip leaders (or any of you) come across deals in air fare they will be passed on to all participants. Once you secure you airfare, please pass that information on to Kathleen who will investigate group ground transportation.
