IMPORTANT MESSAGE: The Board of Directors of the Susquehanna Ski Club (SSC) considers the health and safety of ALL of our members and guests a top priority. Due to the recent surge of cases of Covid-19, SSC is instituting a new protocol for all meetings, events and trips provided by SSC. To participate in any SSC meeting, event, or trip, the "Covid Release for SSC" form (click on hyperlink to open this PDF) must be completed and signed by members and guests before entering a meeting room, event, or boarding a bus. Please read this form at your convenience, print if possible and bring it with you to our next meeting or event. If you cannot print it, copies will be available upon registration at the meeting/event. We ask that if you are sick, have a sore throat or fever that you please stay home.
If you are interested in hosting a wine/beer night, bowling, or other activity, please contact Social VP Suzanne Laughman at email@example.com.

Summertime is Deck Time!
Thursday or Friday events! It’s Deck Time again! This year we are changing things up by flipping days of the week for some of these events. It’s time for gathering with friends old and new at local decks/patios throughout the SSC area. No reservation or membership needed! Arrive at the selected destination at 5 PM or later, look for folks gathered around tables displaying SSC table tent cards and JOIN IN! This is a great way to meet club members and discover SSC. Below is the schedule of our 2021 deck events for the rest of the season. Hope to see you there!
SSC Meetup Page
Do you ever feel like getting out on the ski slopes, waterways, golf course or bike trails, but don't really have anyone to go with you when you are available? Maybe it's your day off, but your friends cannot go. That's why we started the SSC MEETUP page, so you can post activities that other members might enjoy too.
To sign up, please click on the Meetup icon at the top of any SSC webpage, or type this URL into your browser: http://www.meetup.com/Susquehanna-Ski-Snowboard-Club.
New Way to Volunteer: SSC recently launched an on-line volunteer sign-up tool. It’s called SignUpGenius and it’s super easy to use. When the club needs volunteers (for example, to help at the Get-Acquainted Party, which will be here before you know it), we will send out an email blast requesting your help. Open that email! It will contain a link to our volunteer sign-up form. All you need to do is click on the link, and you will see the various jobs available and the shifts that need to be filled. Just fill in your name and email address for the slot(s) you want. That’s it! Thanks for supporting your club!
We urge those of you who have yet to get involved in your club to stop thinking about it, and just do it! The more you engage in this club, the greater the benefits to you. There are many ways in which to become more involved – ranging from volunteering at a social event to providing an essential function to help run the club. Any amount of time you can spare will be repaid richly through the friends you’ll make and keep through SSC.
Current volunteer opportunities:
Hershey Park Volunteers: We are seeking dependable volunteers who would like to be part of a program that will help you earn free Hershey Park tickets while helping SSC to earn a little cash. You will earn 1 to 3 Park passes for working each 4-5 hour shift, and SSC will earn $6 for each hour you work (half of these proceeds will benefit SSC and half will benefit Special Olympics or the Central PA Food Bank. All you have to do is submit your name and email address to our Hershey Park Volunteer Coordinator, Lovena Nickle at email@example.com or 717-541-8803. When volunteer opportunities at Hershey arise she will send you an email asking if you would like to work that event. Volunteer opportunities include: Working at Food & Beverage kiosks at the Giant Center; helping inside the Park with ride operations, games, food & beverage, and parking. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and have no known violent, criminal sexual or felony convictions, and no known outstanding warrants. All volunteers will be required to sign a Hershey Park Volunteer Release and Waiver Agreement.
Weekend Rides & Hikes
Now that you have put your skis away for the year, it’s time to bring your bike out and join the Email Riders as we cruise rail trails throughout our area. Everyone rides at their own level; some riders push themselves and some simply want to “Smell the Roses” and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the trails we ride.
New riders are encouraged to join the group, and if you want to spend some of your stimulus check on a new bike, reach out to Mike and he can give you information to help you make an appropriate bike choice.
If you don’t want to ride, come and hike the trails as others ride their bikes.
Contact Mike Gavin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to get the ride schedule.
