Trip Report  By Noelle Newman

Welch 2019

What a fun trip! So glad to see everyone. Incredible weather and awesome skiing. No ski injuries, what every trip leader wants. 1 bowling injury though, but my dad brushed himself off and finished his game. Jim Bousso had fun bowling as well. John Ruffner had a "turtle sunday"...you'll have to ask him. The group "Catch Phrase" was fun on the bus on the way home - thanks Skylar. And thank you Barry for letting us know what you thought the little blue pill was. It was actually Razzles. New driver this year, Tiara got us there and back safely.
Thank you all and enjoy the rest of your ski season!

Another Welch Village story: A Success by Judy McCarthy

The wonderful kickoff trip to Welch Village was a big success in many ways.
As with all ski club trips we had great skiing, great company, and wow, this time in Minnesota, really unexpected and unusually warm sunny skies and temperatures. (I did place an order for sunny skies and nice weather, much appreciated, Lord!)
Let me tell you how especially grateful I am to be back skiing this year! This trip was the maiden voyage for my new hip on skis and it was a complete success.
I’d like to thank the following, who I am very grateful for. Trip leader Noelle, the designer of shaped skis (I can still make turns with this “power steering” technology.), John (the boot fitter), my sister Nancy and her family for the support they gave me during my recovery, and finally my whole ski club family for all your support and helpfulness.
I could not have done it without each and every one of you. I am blessed! Thank you again everyone. By the way, here is how you ski with new artificial parts, first you find an easy way down...then you rest.
