COVID Protocol Clarification
Throughout this pandemic, King of Prussia Ski Club Board of Directors continues to place the health and safety of our members at the forefront of all our decisions. At this time, the Board would like to address some concerns raised by members, as well as clarify and reinforce our policy related to COVID-19. While we support members getting vaccinations, the club cannot require that members be vaccinated to be a member or participate in club activities, committees or trips. Since vaccination is voluntary, in an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our membership, all members are required to wear masks at indoor club events, meetings and activities, including while on ski trip buses.
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.
Save the Date for the 2022 Spring Banquet
The annual KOPSC Spring Banquet will be returning to Manufacturers’ Golf and Country Club in Fort Washington on Friday, May 13, 2022. The banquet was last held there in 2019, and we will have the same setup with cocktails on the terrace overlooking the golf course, and the main event will be in the ballroom. So mark your calendar! More information to come, and if you would like to help out, please contact Vice President Tom Ott.
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 is making the transition to a new RSVP process. Now that all of our activities and events are posted publicly on our website (https://www.kingofprussiaskiclub.com), we are taking this step to protect the privacy of our leaders. The website is the host of News Flurries and KOPSC Activities Calendar where up-to-date information on our activities is posted. These web pages are readily accessible from computers and mobile devices.
The new process uses the club webpages and is accessed through the links listed on event postings on the Listserv distribution and Activities Calendar. Members will use the Activity Information page activity-info to request information or RSVP for posted activities. It has fields for 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 will work:
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 link to the KOPSC Store (https://www.kingofprussiaskiclub.com/store), where you can RSVP simply by purchasing the event in the KOPSC Store. The activity leader will follow up with you to acknowledge your registration.
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. An update on the release form will be coming forth when the electronic release form and submission is ready.
