Ski Club Trip #4 - 2/15/19

posted Feb 13, 2019, 6:32 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

Get Ready for Fourth Week of Ski Club
 
This is our first make-up date!  We contracted with EYRE Transportation for this 'off-schedule' trip since our regular provider, Haymarket, was unavailable.  Everything remains the same - just the names of the buses will be different.

Please remember to be at NBMS by 11pm.  We continue to have parents arriving late, which delays our volunteers from heading home with their own kids.  Parking remains at a premium.  Please carpool if you can, and spots are available in the tennis court lots (a short walk from the buses).  Thanks!

Remind your kids that buses load at 3pm - not earlier. A few students are not going to SOARR, instead heading straight to the buses.  Please remind them that school is not dismissed until AFTER SOARR. 


Looking forward to another great night of skiing at Liberty!  :)

Ski Club Trip #3 - 2/8/19

posted Feb 6, 2019, 4:37 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

Get Ready for Third Trip of NB Ski Club This Friday, February 8
 
Yes, snow is on the ground at Liberty!  The temps are dropping tonight and into the weekend, so they are making snow when it goes below 32.  Remember to pack a bandanna or ski mask, as snow making while skiing can make it extra cold.

If your stuff is in the POD from last week...  It will be unloaded as usual for students to pick up and put onto buses after NB dismissal.


Make-Up Dates Set for Friday, February 15 and Friday, February 22
 
For only the second time in a decade, we had to add a second make-up date to our calendar.  We looked at all options and based on charter bus availability, chaperone availability, MCPS schedule, and the best dates to visit Liberty, we chose next Friday, February 15th.  We understand that some families travel away that weekend, and for that we're sorry.  But there is really no other date possible.  Thanks for understanding.


Thank you and remember.... Ski Club is an all-volunteer organization.  We couldn't do it without the 50 volunteers who keep the club running.  Thank them when you see them at the PODS or the 'blue jackets' as they get off the buses at the end of the night.  :)

Ski Club Trip #3 - 2/1/19

posted Jan 29, 2019, 2:45 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

Few Tips for Week Three - READ THIS WITH YOUR STUDENT
 
Keep the Buses Clean is the theme this week.  Students are reminded to use the garbage bags, not the floors, for all garbage.  We will restrict food and drinks should there be any more problems.

Morning Equipment Drop-Off is from 7:15-8:15am sharp.  If a 2-hour delay, it will be from 9:15-10:15am.  Thank you for being patient while waiting in the queue.

Label All Bags With Name and Phone Number, including backpacks and instrument cases.  Adding a colored ribbon will also help your student.

Bring your Night Club Card and Money for Dinner.  Lost your NCC?  Head to Group Sales as soon as you arrive to get a new one.  If definitely lost, then call in advance to have one printed (for $25 fee).  If just misplaced for one week, they will give you a one-week temporary pass.

Dress for 15 to 20-degree Weather this Friday.  It may even snow up at Liberty while we are there, which would be great!  This will be our coldest night so far.

Remind your student to take their lessons.  They are always better once your student can more accurately describe their skiing/boarding ability to the instructors for proper placement in a class.  

Charge phones in advance, or bring a portable charger.  The cold weather robs phones of battery life VERY quickly.  Many kids are shocked when their phone die.
Want to Ski/Board with Your Student? 
 
You can!  Due the very large size of our Ski Club, we have earned 50 extra vouchers that we don't need for chaperones and volunteers.  So we're offering them to you at a steep discount.  Just $60 donation per voucher (limit 4 per family), versus a cost of up to $100 at Liberty, Whitetail, or Roundtop for a night lift ticket, rentals, and lesson. 

100% of your donation will go the NBMS PTSA and NBMS Principal's Fund.

Hurry!  We only have 50 vouchers, and when they're gone, they're gone.  

Safety - READ THIS WITH YOUR STUDENT

30 NB Parents will be serving as chaperones for 365 NB students.  Responsibilities for chaperones and students are clearly outlined in the information packet.  Your student is responsible for his/her behavior and safety.  Chaperones serve as guides, not supervisors, throughout the trip - especially once at Liberty Mountain.  Please have a discussion with your child about smart decision-making, for everyone's sake.  Safety is our #1 priority - make sure it's your child's as well.  Thanks!

Ten Decisions Made Every Week by NBMS Ski Club Participants
1. Do I rent skis or a snowboard tonight?
2. Do I take lessons tonight? If yes, at what time?
3. What lifts and runs will I try tonight?
4. Will I use the terrain park tonight?
5. With whom will I ski/board, and what is their ability compared to mine?
6. If my friends want to ski/board on a run that I'm not familiar, what will I do?
7. If I get separated from my friends while on the mountain, what will I do?
8. Will I ski in control or unsafely?
9. Will I drink high-caffeine energy drinks?
10. How will I behave on the bus, in the lodge, and on the mountain?
Not Riding Home on Bus?

If your student is not riding home on the bus from Liberty, your student must provide a written note to his/her Bus' Lead Chaperone.  Absolutely no verbal or email confirmations.  Thank you for your cooperation.
And remind your student.... HAVE FUN!  :)

Ski Club Trip #2 - 1/18/19

posted Jan 29, 2019, 2:27 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

Few Tips for Week Two - READ THIS WITH YOUR STUDENT
 
Our first week was VERY successful.  Thanks to all the students who did a great job doing their part to follow the expectations and ski/board safely.  We had a few minor injuries, but all-in-all a successful week for our first 7-bus trip!

Morning Equipment Drop-Off will go much faster this week, as most bags are already tagged.  Thank you for being patient while waiting in the car queue.

Label All Bags With Name and Phone Number, including school backpacks, because they all look alike.  Adding a colored ribbon will also help your student.  Bus Leads have lots of Lost & Found items without names ready to pass out this week.

Afternoon Loading needs to go faster.  Once a student has loaded their stuff under the bus, they are not allowed off.  Every minute we spend in the parking lot is one minute less we spend on the slopes.

Bring your Night Club Card and Money for Dinner.  Misplaced your NCC?  Head to Group Sales as soon as you arrive to get a one-time pass.  If definitely lost, then call in advance to have one printed (for $25 fee) - it will be waiting for your student.  

Dress for 30-degree Weather this Friday.  And the snow will be much better due to all this great winter weather!

Remind your student to take their lessons.  They are ALWAYS better the second week.  The student knows more, and the instructors are able to better classify them.  If they miss the 5:30pm time, the 7:00pm time offers smaller classes.  

Charge phones in advance, or bring a portable charger.  The cold weather robs phones of battery life VERY quickly.  Many are shocked at how fast their phone died.

Don't be that parent who shows up at 11:30pm.  Last week, we had several students picked up late.  You must be at NBMS at 11:00pm for pick-up.  

Carpool for the late-night pick-up.  We just have too many cars and not enough parking spaces.  Trade off with another parent to do 2,3 or even 4 kids in one trip.

Not Riding Home on Bus?

If your student is not riding home on the bus from Liberty, your student must provide a written note to his/her Bus' Lead Chaperone.  Absolutely no verbal or email confirmations.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Ski Club Trip #1 - 1/11/19

posted Jan 29, 2019, 2:26 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

First Ski Club Trip ON For This Friday, January 11, 2019! 
  
Welcome to ski season - this time with snow!  Please re-read the 2019 Ski Club Info Packet (click here to download) to answer most, if not all of your questions.  This e-mail provides some reminders, but does not cover everything.  If you have a question not covered in the packet, please e-mail nbskiclub@gmail.com. We will try to answer within 24 hours.

The remaining trips are scheduled for January 18, and February 1, 8, and 22.  If we need an additional make-up date, we will announce later.

Want to ski more?  Your student's Night Club Card is valid every night after 4pm (3pm Sundays) through end of season.  Take advantage!
What's Up with Bus Assignments?
  
Bus assignments are posted outside the NBMS cafeteria.  We will not be posting them online or e-mailing them out to protect student names.  If not already known, please have your student get their bus number this week.  We will also have them at Morning Equipment Drop-Off and Afternoon Bus Loading.  Sorry, no bus changes.   
The Skinny on Friday Morning Equipment Drop-Off

Friday morning between 7:15am - 8:15am (sharp) in the lower parking lot by the tennis courts, we will be accepting bags and ski equipment for storage.  Be sure to put your student's name and home/cell phone number on every bag, coat, helmet, and piece of ski equipment - even if you are not putting into storage.
  
All bags dropped off on Friday morning will be tagged with a colored tag before being put into the storage POD.  When you or your student hands your bags to the volunteer, clearly state the bus number and color.  (If you don't know it, they will look it up).  The bag will be tagged for the season, allowing us to more quickly load/unload in future weeks.  Please cut off last year's tags before Friday.
  • Bus 1 (grade 8) - YELLOW
  • Bus 2 (grade 8) - RED
  • Bus 3 (grade 8/7) - BLUE
  • Bus 4 (grade 7) - GREEN
  • Bus 5 (grade 7) - ORANGE
  • Bus 6 (grade 7/6) - PURPLE
  • Bus 7 (grade 6) - GRAY
Please drive slowly and follow the directions of the volunteers.  Do not get out of your car or park - just keep moving.  Students may bring their ski bags/equipment on the school bus in the morning and drop it off over by the tennis courts too. However, ski club morning equipment drop-off is not a valid excuse to be tardy.

If MCPS has delayed opening, Morning Equipment Drop-Off is delayed as well.
Being Ready to Ski/Board this Friday...

Temps are predicted to be in the 20's!  (Click here for weather).  Be sure to have your student bring appropriate cold-weather gear.  If you are dressed appropriately, skiing is a GREAT experience.  Some suggestions:
  • Appropriate winter/ski clothing - including layers on top and bottom, helmet, winter coat, ski gloves, ski goggles, and (if windy) face mask or bandanna.  
  • A plan for before-school drop-off of equipment/bags.
  • A plan for after-school food/drink.
  • A plan for dinner money while skiing.  Click here to learn about loading money on your student's Night Club Card.
  • A parent-student conversation about decision-making.  See below.
  • A plan to pick-up your student a11:00pm on Friday night.  Arrive early for best parking - but don't park in the bus alley.  And PLEASE don't be late.

As a reminder, if schools are closed or close early, no ski club.

Lessons are Awesome!
 
If your student's Night Club Card comes with Lessons, they are at 5:45pm or 7:00pm.  Instructors should be punching their lift tickets with the Liberty Mountain logo to prove they took a lesson.  This allows you to have proof if you need it with the punched ticket.  We highly encourage lessons, especially for beginners.  Perhaps you can create an incentive for your child to take lessons?  We highly encourage them!
Chaperones

30 NB Parents will be serving as chaperones for 363 NB students.  Responsibilities for chaperones and students are clearly outlined in the information packet.  Your student is responsible for his/her behavior and safety.  Chaperones serve as guides, not supervisors, throughout the trip - especially once at Liberty Mountain.  Please have a discussion with your child about smart decision-making, for everyone's sake.  Safety is our #1 priority - make sure it's your child's as well.  Thanks!

E-cigarettes, Vaping, and Juuling

They are 100% strictly forbidden during the entire ski club trip.  If your student in caught with any paraphernalia, they will be removed from ski club with no refund.  We suggest reminding your student of this important rule.
Not Riding Home on Bus?

If your student is not riding home on the bus from Liberty, your student must provide a written note to his/her Bus' Lead Chaperone.  Absolutely no verbal or email confirmations.  Thank you for your cooperation.
Emergencies

In the highly unlikely event that your student has a medical emergency, we have a thorough process to manage it.  Please answer any 'Unknown Numbers' on Friday night, and, if needed, be prepared to drive up to Frederick or Gettysburg.  In the past decade, we have had from 0 to 3 hospital trips per year.  So, highly unlikely, but know the safety and well-being of your student is our top priority.  
And remind your student.... HAVE FUN!  :)

Ski Club Cancelled 1/4/19

posted Jan 2, 2019, 4:38 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

NO SKI CLUB ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 2019
  
First Ski Club Trip Cancelled Due to Lack of Snow, Warm Temps
  
As (bad) luck would have it, this week's unseasonably warm temperatures are melting the base of snow and preventing Liberty Mountain from making any more before Friday.  Therefore, they are closing tonight with a TBD re-opening date.

The remaining trips are scheduled for January 11 & 18, and February 1, 8, & 22.
This is a first for us; we have had to cancel for extreme cold before, but never for extreme warm.  In any case, long-term forecast shows cold temps and snow - we'll get up there next week.
Night Club Card Valid at Whitetail and Roundtop
  
They have been able to maintain snow at their sister resorts, and they are scheduled to be open this weekend.  Check the websites before going, but your student's NCC is valid there too - Monday-Saturday after 4pm; Sunday after 3pm.    
Until next week.... think COLD and SNOW!

2019 NB Ski Club Filled

posted Oct 25, 2018, 6:34 PM by North Bethesda Ski Club

The 2019 NB Ski Club is filled.  

All RETURNING members who registered by 10/22/18, and all NEW members who entered the lottery by 10/22/18 were enrolled in the club.  

RETURNING members have until 10/26/18 to complete their registration requirements.  NEW members have until 11/02/18 to complete their registration requirements.

We will consider a wait list AFTER 11/5/18.

NB Ski Club Registration Now Open

posted Oct 18, 2018, 4:12 AM by North Bethesda Ski Club

Interested in joining the 2019 North Bethesda Ski Club?  Please read on... 

What is the NB Ski Club?
The North Bethesda Ski Club is an activity sponsored by the NBMS PTO, a separate organization from the PTSA.  In existence for more than 20 years the NB Ski Club transports 320 NB students plus parent chaperones on 5 ski trips to Liberty Mountain January 4, 11, 18 and February 1, 9, (22 make-up date), 2019.  

How can I join the NB Ski Club?
Read the instructions below based on your student's previous participation in the NB Ski Club.  Be sure to meet all stated deadlines - there will be no extensions for any reason.  

NEW TO SKI CLUB INSTRUCTIONS
All new to Ski Club students (all 6th graders, and any 7th or 8th graders who did not participate in 2018) may enter a lottery for the remaining seats.  Entry into the lottery requires completing an information form by Monday, October 22nd.  This is a hard deadline. Selected students will be notified of their status by Saturday, October 27th, and have until Friday, November 2nd to pay, turn in the permission form and purchase a Night Club Card to complete a student's registration.  Visit http://www.nbms-pto.org/new-lottery for information and to enter the lottery.

RETURNING TO SKI CLUB INSTRUCTIONS
All returning 2018 NB Ski Club members (and those who were on the 2018 Waitlist) are guaranteed a seat in the 2019 NB Ski Club if they register and pay online by Monday, October 22nd.  This is a hard deadline.  In addition, a signed permission form must be turned in and the Night Club Card must also be purchased by Friday, October 26th to complete a student's registration.  Visit http://www.nbms-pto.org/returning-payment for information and to register.

Why is this the registration process?
Because we want to offer the fairest opportunity for students to participate in this high-demand program.  We used to wait in line for hours - no fun for anybody.  Then we moved to a first-come, first-serve online - stressed-out parents and crashing browsers.  So, last year, we separated RETURNING and NEW, and gave both groups 5 days to register, plus another week to complete all the other requirements.  MUCH less stressful for everyone involved.  :)

We guarantee seats to RETURNING TO SKI CLUB students (and those who were on last year's Waitlist) who meet the deadlines, and offer a random lottery to NEW TO SKI CLUB students.  We feel this is the most fair to all, and anticipate that the vast majority of new to ski club students will get in the club.  However, we also know that some students will be disappointed in the outcome of not being selected.  

Last year, about 25 students who were on the waitlist did not get in.  This year, we are guaranteeing those students a seat in the 2019 Ski Club.  We will do the same next year for this year's waitlisted 6th and 7th grade students.

We encourage ALL NB Students to consider registering for the NB Ski Club.  If you have a financial need, please contact us and we will refer you to the Counseling Center for potential assistance.

Questions?  E-mail nbskiclub@gmail.com.

Thanks!
