Send Us Your Photos!
Have you checked out our online photo gallery lately at www.kopsc.com/picture-gallery Webmaster Stephen Chrostowski has done an incredible job of organizing and displaying photos from our ski trips and many other activities. We want more of them! Activity leaders and others, please submit your KOPSC photos as .jpg files to Stephen Chrostowski with “web photos” and the activity name in the subject line. We’d love for everyone who visits our website to see how much fun we’re having!
RSVP Process for KOPSC Activities
The KOPSC Activities Committee has transitioned to an online RSVP process. This step was taken to protect the privacy of our leaders, as our website is accessible by the general public.
Our RSVP process uses the club’s webpages and is accessed through the links listed on event postings in the Activities Calendar. Members will use the Activity Information page (https://www.kingofprussiaskiclub.com/activity-info) to request information or RSVP for posted activities. It has fields for the member’s name and email address (which allows both manual and auto filling), dropdown list of activities and message section. This page will be forwarded to the Activity Leader, who will respond to the member.
Here’s how it works:
Typical activity postings include the event name and description, when and where, cost, leader’s name, and the link to the Activity Information page. Click to open the link, enter the required information, select the appropriate activity from the dropdown menu for “Request Information on” and click Send. If the event has a cost and requires payment by check, the event leader will respond and provide necessary information for submitting the check.
For events that are set up for credit card/PayPal payment, event posting will include a link to the KOPSC Store (https://www.kingofprussiaskiclub.com/store), where you can RSVP simply by purchasing the event in the KOPSC Store.
For events that require a KOPSC Individual Activity Registration/Release form, each participant will download the form, complete it and send it to the Activity Leader – either by mail or as a scanned copy attached to an email. For group events, the Activity Leader will usually have a group registration form for participants to sign at the event. Specifics will be included in each activity listing.
KOPSC Mask Requirement Modified:
Update to Club COVID Policy
Throughout this pandemic, the King of Prussia Ski Club Board of Directors has continued to place the health and safety of our members at the forefront of all our decisions. In light of the recent decline in COVID-19 cases in our area, the Board is revising our COVID-19 policy. Effective Wednesday March 9th, masks will be optional at all KOPSC indoor events, including bus transportation, unless otherwise required by the venue or vendor being used. At this time, masks are still required at airport terminals and on airplanes during flight. As a reminder, please continue to practice social distancing when possible, and if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
This revision to the policy means that masks will not be required at the Spring Banquet. The requirement for proof of vaccination or negative COVID test at our indoor activities remains in place. The Board will continue to monitor the status of the pandemic and make adjustments to the COVID policy as warranted.
Please refer to the COVID-19 policy on our website for full details, and reach out to your trip leaders, activity leaders or Board members with any questions or concerns. We thank you all for your anticipated cooperation and for considering the health and safety of yourself and each other as we navigate these fluid and difficult times
