December Student Trip

November 26th, 2012

For those who would rather ski, and ditch Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, please plan on attending the General Meeting, this Wednesday, November 28th at Pat Moynihan’s clubhouse, address is 3754 Hamilton Street, Irvine CA @ 7pm. This is our first student trip of the season, which will take place on December 14-16th.

Great chance to see familiar faces, as well as new ones; or to show off your Coppertone tan before it goes away. Better yet, come and turn in your membership forms, trip forms, or coordinate ride share to the mountain. Talking about ride share, be sure to indicate on the Trip Form whether you’ll need a ride, or if you have room to spare. With gas price close to $4, it only makes sense to ride share with others.

The mountain has a base of 2-3 feet so plenty of snow to avoid scratching your precious skis or snowboard. More snow is on the way, so likely much more by the trip date.

Updated Policies and Procedures

November 4th, 2012

Hello Achievers,

There are a number of changes to our Policies and Procedures for this season.  Below are two of the bigger changes but please take the time to review the entire document so you’re updated on all changes.

Section G. Instructor Training. There’s a new outline in regards to what’s needed for new instructors, as well as returning instructors.  We’ve instituted a training unit system, see P&Ps for details.

Under Section VI Equipment, category C. Safety.  All participants must wear helmets during ski/snowboard training, instruction or skiing on a Friday ticket.  This is now a National requirement.

Reminder to send in your membership dues for this season.  Any questions on membership, please contact Karen Lunzman at

Instructor’s Trip

November 1st, 2012

Hello Achievers,

The season is upon us, and it’s time to think SNOW ! For those interested in attending the Instructor’s trip, it will take place on November 16-18.  Please plan on attending the General Meeting on November 7 at Pat Moynihan’s clubhouse to turn in all needed forms, and dues.

Time – 7pm

Address – 3754 Hamilton Street, Irvine CA

  • Background Check – If you are a new “instructor”, please remember you’ll need to go through a background check.  The cost is paid by the group, and it’s easy as clicking on a link, and putting in the below registration number. For returning instructors, this needs to be done every two years, so if you didn’t do one last season, you’ll need to complete this season.  Please do this as early as possible as the process can take 30 dayshttp:/ Enter self registration number: 29771900.  All volunteers will need to go through the check before attending any student’s trips.
  • Membership are now due for the season, please fill out attached membership form, and send check to Karen Lunzman.  Address is noted on top portion of form.
  • If you’re not able to attend the General Meeting, and would like to go on the trip, send an email to DSOC.TRIPS@GMAIL.COM.  Please provide all information including whether you need accommodation, the days you’ll be attending, and if you have room to carpool.
  • It’s also my understanding Pat Moynihan has available space at Van’s condo, please contact him at 949-295-6744 if you’re interested, first come first serve.  We will attempt to reserve space at Viewpoint Condo if we have enough interests.
  • Our website has been updated with our 2012-2013 schedule and forms.

Rumors this will be a great snow season, come join us on Wednesday, and don’t forget to bring all your forms and dues.  Time to Ski !!!
