Ski with Sitzmark


2014/2015 Meet & Ski with MSC Clubs

As Sitzmark is a member of the Midwest Sport/Ski Council (MSC), our members are invited to even more fun-filled events and get a chance to mingle with other local ski and sports clubs. This year Sitzmark is partnering with the 3M Ski Club. Sitzmark, 3M, and other ski clubs are hosting several Meet-N-Ski dates this winter and you’re invited to join us! Group discounts apply for a turnout of 20 or more. Watch our websites and www.midwestfun.org for more details. For the events at Welch (welchvillage.com), we will meet at Madd Jaxx Chalet in the east parking lot. Many Sitzmarkers will be there, as well as members from the other local ski clubs. Organized by John Olson, 612-385 -5646, johnskiier@yahoo.com. For more info on events at Afton or those hosted by Ski Hawks go to their websites at aftonalps.com and www.mnskihawks.org. 9/22/14: Here are some events in the works for this season- watch our calendar for updates and www.meetup.com!

Friday October 24, 2014 8pm Warren Miller Movie

Warren Miller Film and Happy Hour Friday, October 24 6pm Happy Hour at Crave (downtown) 8pm Movie at the State Theatre, Minneapolis Movie: This fall Warren Miller Entertainment brings you its 65th winter sports film, Warren Miller’s . . . No Turning Back. No Turning Back is your annual reminder that winter is on its way. Watch the trailer at warrenmiller.com. The show will be coming to the State Theatre (805 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55402) on Friday, October 24 at 8pm. Sitzmark has bought tickets for the Friday night show at the group rate: $25 each (this is a $6 savings instead of buying them through TicketMaster, which charges $31). RSVP by buying your ticket online at www.sitzmarkmn.org through paypal. To pay otherwise (such as with cash at the Kick-Off party on 10/11/14), contact Sally Hed sally.hed@immunochemistry.com, 612-554-0864 (and text). Meet me before the show at Crave or the box office to get your tickets. In years past, ticket holders received a free weekday lift ticket to Lutsen, Welch Village, and others WI. They also received $25 off a purchase of $100 or more at ski shops. Make no mistake that it will sell out: in the last 3 years, we’ve had about 40+ people come to the movie and happy hour. There is a great feeling of ski camaraderie at the theater, and it’s a good place to meet other skiers. We’ve opened the event to SkiHawks and other MSC clubs, so buy your tickets ASAP! Happy hour at Crave: Meet us before the show around 6:00 for dinner/happy hour/drinks before the movie at Crave downtown (825 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis. Last year, Crave was really busy and some people went to other venues nearby).
