Election of Officers to be held at the March meeting

Each year, at the March club meeting, we elect two officers for two year terms.  The positions up for election (or re-election) are President and Secretary.  Both incumbents are eligible for another term, if they offer to run for re-election. 

In addition, Mark Frumkin, our Vice President, is resigning his position for medical reasons, so we need to elect a replacement to finish Mark’s term which will end in March 2020.

The Nominations Committee, consisting of Beverly Kim, Jim Gillespie, and myself, are looking for volunteers to run for these offices.  As you may know, our club functions well because we have many volunteers who give their time to bring us all a quality hiking experience.

Please contact Bev, Jim or me if you wish to volunteer to be nominated for election to any of these three positions.

Thanks, Dennis Zigmunt, Treasurer - PC Hiking Club

Potluck and Used Gear Sale

On March 31st, the Pebble Creek Hiking Club will have a potluck and a used hiking gear sale.  It all begins at 4 p.m. at the Eagles Nest Ballroom with drinks & appetizers, followed by dinner, dessert and a 50/50 raffle.

Members need to bring a dish to share and their own non-alcoholic beverages. The Club will provide plates, cutlery, napkins, and a self-pay bar will be available.

Remember to bring your used hiking clothes/gear to sell (with the desired $$ price you are seeking.)

Prescott Overnight Hike - April 9-10

The overnight hike in Prescott has been moved forward by a week as the week originally scheduled was the week before Easter. Pete will be staying at the Hotel St Michael, on the corner of the main square in historic Prescott. The hotel was built in the early 1900s and still has the atmosphere of an early 20th century hotel.

Any hotel on the square is an ideal location for wandering around historic Prescott after the first day's hike. Hotel St Michael and several other hotels in the area have room rates under $100/night through online travel websites.

The hikes will be Willow Lake in the Granite Dells (all 3 levels of hikes) and Quartz Mountain (for Cs). I'll work with the B & D hike coordinators for second day hikes as needed.

Contact Pete Williams if you are interested and at what hike level.

Awards Patches 

Patches Awards patches for achievement of hundreds of hikes or thousands of miles are available for purchase by ordering them at Hiking Club meetings. If you can’t attend a meeting and want to order a patch, contact Dennis Zigmunt, 623-237-1077, or
