Looking for Extended Ski Trip Proposals for Next Winter

The North Star Board will consider proposals for extended ski trips for the 2015-16 winter season at the March 24 board meeting. Extended trips are trips
lasting 5 days or longer. Please notify the trip coordinators (Dan Jacobson and Gary Follett at schedules@north-stars.org) in advance if you plan to propose an extended trip. This year, we had four extended trips.
