Our Ohio Region 2020-2021 ski season is near. This is not only a new season, but we have a new Region Administration in place. Let us welcome Dave McKinley as our New Ohio Region Director. In addition to Dave, you will notice many new names of patrollers who have stepped up to serve your Ohio Region. The 2020-2021 Organization chart has been posted. We do have a few unfilled positions. Take the time to look at the open positions. Can you fulfill one of the open region administration positions? Please consider stepping up! Follow this link to check them out.
The Ohio Region board has agreed to move the Awards Banquet to the Fall meeting due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. This essentially switches our traditional Meeting/Awards weekend from Spring to Fall. The plan is to hold a spring business meeting, similar to how we conduct the fall meeting. The big difference is this will be a tele-meeting. We will have access to a ZOOM account where we can all stay safe in our own homes/office and do our season recap and next season planning.
Due to unforeseen circumstances MTR 1 has been cancelled. Look for a rescheduling in late summer 2020 and an MTR 2 to be scheduled in November 2020.
The 2020 Ohio Region Awards Banquet will be held in conjunction with the region Spring business meeting on:
Saturday May 16, 2020
Crowne Plaza Hotel
Registration for the meeting and Banquet will be coming soon!
Rooms are available at $119/night. Please call at 888-233-9527 to reserve a room. Please identify yourself as a member of the Ohio Region Ski Patrol when making your reservation.
The city offers many activities to keep you and your family entertained. The historic Churchill Downs race track, the home of the Kentucky Derby, is nearby. The spring meet will be underway with racing throughout the weekend. The grounds are also home to the Kentucky Derby Museum. Other museums in Louisville include the Louisville Slugger Museum, the Muhammad Ali Museum, the Speed Art Museum, and the Frazier history museum. The Louisville area offers several distilleries you can tour to learn about the production of Bourbon (and sample!). Close to the Paoli Peaks Ski Resort is the famous French Lick Springs and West Baden Springs Hotels which offer casino gambling and world-class golf.
Congratulations to all who participated in our on-snow events. Here are a few pictures.
