Hello, I am your socials director, aka your party captain, WOO! I’ve been in the club for 10 years now, mostly as a regular member, then as a social committee chair, and now director. I’m also a newly minted snowboard instructor.
The first time I went snowboarding was on Mt. Fuji while I was teaching ESL in Japan - the good friends, spectacular views, physical challenge, and exhilaration made me say “This makes me happy to be alive!”
The second time was at Whistler/Blackcomb while working for the 2010 Olympics. When I came home to Ontario, I just had to get out to the HUGE mountains we have here and went to Glen Eden, Boler, and Horseshoe. Then a friend convinced me to try a day trip to MSLM with NTSC, and after the relaxing morning bus ride, the super fun and educational first lesson, nerding out with other snow geeks, the lively apres that continued on the bus ride home, learning about the amazing travel trips to the big mountains - I decided I had to join.
I love helping to build community and partnerships, and the social committee is all about that! We plan events all year-round to give members opportunities for fun, friendship, new adventures, challenge, chill-axing, conversation, socializing, networking, romance, and exploring the best Toronto has to offer for enjoying life!
As the socials director, I’m excited about collaborating with all the portfolios to make the upcoming season the best it can be. The plan for socials: Keep up the pub nights, stick with the much-loved old faithfuls like bowling and curling, experiment and take some risks with new ideas, revisit successful past events, and keep planning ahead to deliver the fun opportunities to all of you.
Get in touch with me at socials @ ntsc.ca if you have any ideas for future events!
