Socials 2020-2021 Updates:
Socials during a pandemic are, what’s the word?, tricky.
Generally, our socials have been great opportunities for our members to get together off the slopes or trails to have even more fun, deepen friendships and party. We try to move them around the city, try to strike the right balance between tried and true and new and exciting, athletic and sedate, quiet and loud.
And then there are our major events, Kick-off, Holiday Party, Year-End. These are almost inconceivable right now in the way that we have done it in the past (although we hold out hope for the year-end). And, I am not sure that people would enjoy these events virtually. 300 people with open mics on a Zoom call sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
So, what to do?
The socials team is working on it. We have some events we are working on now that include:
Virtual wine/vodka/scotch/? tasting with a professional
Golf Tournament - September 26 - Sign up now!
Scavenger Hunt with online reveal
Online games including Trivia
Ice skating seems like a natural
We are also looking at the things that we already do to see if there couldn’t be a social there. For example, could we get a group of mostly alpine members to come out for a Nordic trip and vice versa. Snowshoeing, why not?
We would LOVE to still do socials every two weeks and make them fun and memorable. While the weather is still good, we would like to be outside as much as we can. If you have ideas, or things that you have been part of that worked for other organizations, let us know and we will investigate how this could work for us and our 1,150 members. firstname.lastname@example.org is the best way to reach us.
We really do hope to see you soon!
