Ski with Sitzmark

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.

Friday October 24, 2014 8pm Warren Miller Movie and Happy Hour at Crave

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). As of 10/16/14, we got 11 more tickets. When these are gone, they're gone. Buy ASAP! Thanks everyone, it will be fun!

This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket, deluxe coach bus ride, a hearty breakfast (bagels, meat, eggs, cheese, Nutella, bananas, juice, and more). Rentals are available for just $20 (skis or boards), and lessons for just $12. Last year, we had 60 skiers (including 18 new people) and everyone wanted to go back again! This year, we are also offering 20 lift ticket vouchers at $32 for people driving up on their own, which I can mail to you in advance, or you can meet us at the bus. These vouchers are good for any day this 2014/2015 season (redeem them at the ticket window or group office). You must be an MSC member to buy the voucher as it’s a special deal our club got and they are not available for sale to the general public. Board the bus at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the south side of the complex). Get cozy as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp and serve breakfast once we get rolling; we plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am. Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Fireside Room (next to the Moosehead Lodge) to get your lift ticket, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). Pick up rentals at the group office. For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 8pm. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html. Organized by Sally Hed, sally@immunochemistry.com 612-554-0864; co-hosted by Nancy Peterson of Traverskis. For just $5, buy a green Sitzmark bandana so we can find each other on the slopes! I’ll have them available on the bus.
