Information about our types of activities

Below are general descriptions of our various events held throughout the year - as you mouse over the title, the description will appear. EACH event has its own sign-up sheet; we make no assumptions that you will attend multiple/related events on a given day if you ONLY RSVP for one event.

  • Dinner


    We offer potlucks and catered dinners throughout the year. The venue may limit attendance, so the club may close sign ups before the cut-off date.

    We plan 2 dinners per year: one is our Holiday Party (Dec) and the other is our Awards Dinner (Mar). Dinners are catered events at "The Lodge". You pre-pay for your dinner selection via snail mail and there will be a list of attendees on-line. However, any changes to your RSVP must be made over the phone (contact name will be given).

    A potluck is where the club requests attendees to bring a dish to share. For a potluck, we provide an RSVP form and the sign-up list. You may modify/cancel your RSVP by resubmitting a revised form - this new submission will replace any prior ones!

  • Skiing


    Throughout the ski season we host ski days at nearby ski areas midweek. We negotiate lift ticket prices for the club on those days and possibly a bus (between Northwoods parking lot and the ski area). Payment for lift tickets are due that morning, either at the bus or meeting place of the ski area. We rely upon the signup sheets to determine the number of tickets, bus capacity, and overall number of skiers. We also need phone information as a means to contact the skier in case of any changes (cancelled bus and/or ski day).

  • Clinics


    We arrange for pre-season conditioning exercise classes at Trout Creek for our members. There is a fee for attendance if you do not have a Trout Creek fitness pass.

    We provide several ski clinics each at Tahoe Donner Ski Hill. In January we hold a three-day clinic in the morning at various skill levels. In February and March we offer a clinic or race choice for the morning. Such clinics are provided free to club members (there is a fee for guests), apart from the lift ticket. In combination with the Ski Hill we may offer a race clinic, for a fee, the day before the race.

  • Golf


    Each year we offer a golf tournament and the club provides an appetizer event afterwards for all members in the Grotto. You separately sign up for the tournament and appetizer (you can attend either or both). The club provides the appetizers and beverages may be purchased at the bar.

  • Tennis


    Each year we hold a tennis round-robin with a potluck dinner to follow at the TD Tennis Center. You separately sign up for the tennis and potluck (you can attend either or both, but different volunteers check for numbers from the specific list they oversee).

  • Kayaking


    We typically arrange for 3 kayak trips in the summer at Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. Our shortest trip is on Donner Lake and we socialize after with a Breakfast burrito. The sign-up sheets specify rental vs own kayaks and, based on that information, we work with a nearby vendor to set aside kayaks for our needs. The Lake Tahoe outings are generally longer where you'll want to bring plenty of water and food since we may not end until noon.

  • Tour


    In the fall we may offer a tour of Thunderbird Lodge. Payment will be made at the venue and we recommend carpooling from Northwoods since parking is at a premium. Signing up via the online form is a must since the number of attendees is limited.

Meet at Meeks Bay Marina, Lake Tahoe - Kayak from Meeks Bay to Sugar Pine Point Park and back. Meet at 9:00 am, boats in the water 9:30 am.

In order to plan the lunch (see below) an RSVP by July 15 would be very helpful. Be sure to RSVP no later than 5pm, July 17. We did this trip last year and it was so popular we thought it was worth repeating! It is a beautiful paddle of 3 - 5 miles, about 1 - 2 hours on Lake Tahoe. We will meet at Meeks Bay Marina at 9am so we can be ready to paddle around 9:30am. The marina is located at 7901 West Lake Boulevard, Tahoma, CA. There is a parking fee at Meeks Bay of $10 for the day.

The plan is to paddle from Meeks Bay to Sugar Pine Point Park and beyond for a total of about an hour, then return to Meeks Bay. People are welcome to go longer or shorter as they wish. It will be a lot of fun and this part of the Lake Tahoe coastline is beautiful. Lots of forest, rock, houses and boats to look at!

Kayak rentalf: You can bring your own kayak or rent a kayak from Action Watersports which is right at the beach. W e have a new, hopefully improved, rental procedure. Single kayaks are $25 per hour, double kayaks are $35 per hour. To speed up the rental process we are going to put this all on one rental form and submit everyone's names in advance. They charge the first hour up front, and any remaining hours are charged upon return. The organizers will charge everyone's first hour rentals on their credit card, so please plan to bring cash to reimburse them for your share. Once we have final counts for single and double kayak rentals, the organizers will contact Action Watersports to reserve.

Lunch following kayaking: We'll make a giant taco salad for lunch, with everyone bringing an ingredient (details to follow), and we'll eat at the very nice beach at Meeks Bay. Bring your own beverage. There is also a general store right there in case you need to buy anything.

To cancel after 5pm, July 17 or if you have any questions, contact Jacky Poulsen.
