It seems early while the heat of early September summer is still upon us, but yes it is time to think forward to winter snows and the upcoming ski season.
So, with the new ski club year dawning, it is time to consider club membership renewal before the holidays quickly come upon us and push it from our minds.
The club would like to have a fresh copy of your membership information, signed liability release agreement and dues by our next meeting on December 7th. You may print the membership forms here.
Dues are $10/person (or $20/family) – “Life members” are exempt from dues. Make a check payable to: MVCCSC
Mail your signed forms and check to: Mike Stebner, Treasurer MVCCSC, 2259 Princess Dr, Beavercreek, OH 45434
If you have been a member in the past, but do not intend to renew your membership, please send an email to *protected email* to let us know of your intentions. This will help out the membership committee immensely.
On behalf of the 2014 Board, we wish you a wonderful Fall season and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Mike Stebner, Treasurer
There is still time for members to join the group for this big trip.
The next club meeting will be held the evening of December 14th at our annual holiday dinner. Additional details will be forthcoming.
It was a beautiful day for our annual Fall kickoff picnic and meeting. Bill led a group on a bike ride in the vicinity of Eaton before we all joined in for some BBQ fare.
The club meeting was held where we thanked last year’s officers and welcomed in the new.
Briefings were provided on the 2014 winter club trips, planned for Vista Verde Ranch (near Clark, CO) and Lone Mountain Ranch in Montana. There is still room for members to join these trips, but space is limited. Please contact the trip coordinators for more to reserve space (see the Upcoming Events section of the web site for more details).
The next club meeting will be held on Saturday, December 7th at our annual club holiday dinner. Additional details are forthcoming.
As a reminder to existing club members, annual dues ($10/person or $20/family) along with a signed copy of the membership registration form will be due by January 1st, 2014. Members are encouraged to bring the form and payment early at the December club meeting.

On the weekend of July 20th, club members Dennis Mann and Mike Stebner will be participating in the annual Young’s Ice Cream Charity Bike Tour to benefit four different groups – The Alzheimer’s Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, South Community Behavioral Healthcare and United Rehabilitation Services
If you would like to help each of us achieve our $500 fund raising goals, please visit the Alzheimer’s Fund Raising event site and choose “Click here to find a team or participant“. Just type in one of last names and follow the web pages to make a contribution.
You can be thinking of us during that weekend when we bicycle 85 miles each day from Young’s Jersey Dairy up to Ada, Ohio where we will stay on the Ohio Northern University campus along with over 100 other participants. Last year it was very hot in the mid-90′s, so we’re hoping for better weather this time around.
Hello sports enthusiasts…don’t know if you have seen this exhibit yet? They have one cross country painting from the DAI collection in this exhibit.
This might be a nice outing for the club. The Leo Bistro is lovely and it would be a nice place to have our meetings also. Check it out. I believe they take reservations and the back part of the cafe near the Gift Shop is out of the hub bub and quiet. Lovely little lunches too. http://www.daytonartinstitute.org/visit/leo-bistro No fees, we just eat our lunch there. Opens at 11 AM.
Andy Warhol: Athletes
It was the mid-1970s, and Studio 54 was in full swing when art collector Richard Weisman commissioned his friend Andy Warhol to paint the portraits of several top athletes of the day. At first Warhol was unfamiliar with the sports stars but characteristic of his obsession with fame he recalled: “I really got to love the athletes because they are the really big stars.” The resulting group of ten silk-screen paintings from 1978 present some of the most influential sports stars of the era, including boxer Muhammad Ali, football’s O.J. Simpson, ice skater Dorothy Hamill, basketball’s Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, golfer Jack Nicklaus, ice hockey’s Rod Gilbert, tennis’ Chris Evert, horse racer Willie Shoemaker, baseball’s Tom Seaver and soccer’s Pelé.
The Art of Sport: Highlights from the Collection of the Dayton Art Institute
The theme of sports is ubiquitous in art, and has occupied artists from ancient times to the present. This exhibition features more than 100 examples of how that theme is manifest in some of the Dayton Art Institute’s finest treasures. The objects on display represent a wide-range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media, and the exhibition is sure to delight sports, and art lovers of all ages.
