Youth Ski Trip

Hi all!

It's that time of year again - get your skis and mittens out!  Flowing Forth youth are going skiing!!  Here are the details:

Who: All Flowing Forth youth, 6th-12th grade (invite a friend if you'd like!) & Chaperones

Where: Cascade Mountain, W10441 Cascade Mountain Rd | Portage, WI 53901

When: Monday, February 18th (yep, they're out of school that day)

Time: Meet at Sharon Seitzinger's house 2s820 S. Raddant Rd., Batavia at 6am so we can hit the slopes early!

Cost: Our cost is only $20/person for lift ticket and ski rental as long as we have 15 skiers going.  If you want to ALSO tube, it will only be an additional $10/person.  If you need a ski lesson, that is only $5/person.  If you only want to tube it is $20/person.  Please refer to the additional paperwork re: food vouchers should you decide to purchase food there.  Basic food cost is $8 and the Deluxe food voucher is $10.  Checks to be paid to Flowing Forth UMC.

What to bring: WARM clothes, ski gear, helmet, gloves (and an extra pair just in case), goggles.  Bring snacks for the road and a lunch.  You can bring money to purchase food, but it is often expensive and the lines are long.   Bring some cash for dinner on the way home.  We've stopped at Culver's in the past - always a favorite.

What do we need??  Chaperones!!  I will drive, but I need several other parents.  I'd also love to have an adult who would like to ski come with us.  I'm getting old and fragile so I won't ski (though I might go tubing...).  I'd also like another parent who would be willing to hang out in the ski lodge at our "home base".

We will plan to arrive at Cascade by 9am, ski and/or tube until about 4pm and then hit the road home so that we are back by about 8pm.

What do you need to do?  Let Sharon know that you are going on the trip by Sunday January 28.  Please contact Sharon or the church office for the necessary field trip and medical release forms.  Have all of your paperwork signed and dated and turned in to either Sharon at church or the day of the ski tip.  All forms must be filled out for all participants or they won't be able to ski (and that would be sad).  Make a check out to Flowing Forth UMC for the cost of everything you'll need for the day  (skiing, lessons, tubing, helmet, food vouchers).  Then set your alarm and show up at 6am on that Monday!!

Thanks, Sharon Seitzinger
