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.
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!
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).
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.

Ropes Course Adventure at Granlibakken (RSVP)
Monday, October 6, 2014
10:00am at LOCATION
Have you ever wanted to fly through the trees? Well, the TDSASC has a new outing that will give you that opportunity. We have scheduled the Treetop Adventure Park and Ropes Course at Granlibakken, in Tahoe City for the morning of Monday October 6th. Irene and Art King will be coordinating this fun adventure. They have been there four times with family and friends, from ages 5 to 75. Everyone loved it!
If you've never been on a ropes course, then this is your chance to try it out. If we get at least 12 members to sign up, they will open the park, just for us, for a 2 1/2 hour session, from 10 am to 12:30. It's difficult to explain in an email how this works so we suggest you go to their website and check it out for yourselves. Click HERE and then click on the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park picture. We would plan to do the Monkey Course.
After this adventure, bring your lunch to the Tahoe Park Private Beach, which is next to Sunnyside and share your experience with the group. The cost of this great opportunity is $40 per person. We need a minimum of 12 people, but the course can hold up to 50.
TO SAVE YOUR SPOT, YOU MUST PRE-PAY BY FRIDAY, SEPT 26: send your check, made out to TDSASC, to the following address:
PO Box 9952

Please indicate the names of the participants covered by the check. CHECKS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26.
