Ski Scoop

The Newsletter of the Short Hills Ski Club August 2007


Greetings fellow skiers and snowboarders! I hope you are enjoying your summer at least half as much as I am. Irene Huhner has handed over the editorial reins of the Ski Scoop to me and this is my first issue. The SHSC Ski Scoop has been in publication for over 50 years. With each new editor there have been changes which have evolved the Ski Scoop, from that first publication in November 1953, to what it is today. I am thankful for Irene Huhner, Tom Milner, Don Klein, Pete Webster, and the many others who have laid the foundation for this publication. I intend to continue the tradition for 2007-2008. Many thanks to Irene for a phenomenal job as Editor of the Ski Scoop for 2006-2007. I will attempt to fill Irene's shoes with the same enthusiasm. Now, if only the computer would cooperate! The publication of the Ski Scoop will continue to be via the internet, in keeping with "Green" thinking. The newsletter will be posted on the SHSC website and will be emailed to the distribution list via our NEW president, Marie Nardino. Please print/share with your friends who DO NOT have an email account. The highlights of this newsletter include: Spring Banquet recap Meet the NEW Board Calendar of Events Announcements!



The spring banquet was held at Il Villaggio in Carlstadt, NJ on Saturday, April 21st. As members arrived in the banquet room they were greeted by the wait staff with plates of appetizers. After grabbing a drink, guests mingled to talk about the great ski season and how great everyone looked.

I would personally like to welcome this year's newly elected board members! By now, the 2007-2008 Board has met three times to focus their attention on the betterment of the SHSC for the upcoming ski season. If you would like to provide input for the upcoming ski season, you may access the survey on the website.

Happy reading! Sincerely, Colleen Bradley VanPell

Vermont is vibrant in the summer!

After the cocktail hour, everyone settled into their seats for a wonderful meal which included lobster ravioli. The lavish dinner was followed by scrumptious pastries and a canolli filled cake. The music was then turned up and dancers hit the floor. Members took a break from dancing for the distribution of the annual awards. The party goers had such a blast that Il Villagio had to kick everyone out at closing time. For those who missed the banquet, you missed great friends, great food and a great time!

Who is Barney Sarossy?

Barney Sarossy was a member of the SHSC in the early/mid 1960s. Barney had been a freedom fighter in his native Hungary, taking part in the unsuccessful 1956 Hungarian Uprising. He came to the USA after escaping from Hungary by swimming across the Danube River. Joining the SHSC, he became a very well liked and admired member for both his cheerful and helpful personality and for his willingness to expend himself in all ways for the good of the club. At the time of Barney's untimely death from a staph infection, this annual award was established to be given to members whose contributions and services to the club are judged to most closely emulate those of Barney Sarossy.
