Upload Your Photos & Videos!

The photo gallery was also redesigned. Photos from our ski trips and many other activities can now be viewed via a slide show or an Activity Photo page. In addition to viewing photos, videos are now supported and they can be viewed in full screen mode!

KOPSC Members can now upload both their activity photos and videos to the photo gallery.  The photos and videos can be added either to an existing activity page or to a new activity page, that will be automatically created.  The upload feature is also supported via the mobile site. The uploading process is simple. The instructions are on the photo-gallery page.


Activity leaders and others can also submit your KOPSC photos and videos 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.

Remember COVID Is Still With Us

 

While COVID-19 is no longer designated as a public health emergency, the virus is still very much with us and is likely to be around for some time. We ask that you be mindful about taking precautions against contracting the virus and/or exposing others when participating in our group activities. For example, if you are symptomatic and will be in a group setting, it’s a good idea to test yourself just to make sure you’re negative – even if you think it’s just a cold or allergies. Thank you for your cooperation. Let’s be careful out there!

Real ID Finally Coming

 

After a few postponements, the REAL ID driver’s license in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is finally imminent. As part of an act passed by Congress in 2005, states are required to adhere to certain security standards regarding sources of identification that are used to issue driver’s licenses in order for them to be used for boarding domestic flights. Happily, this won’t take affect before ski season.

 

Beginning May 7, 2025, all driver’s licenses must be “REAL ID” compliant in order to be used as identification for domestic flights. Technically, the REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses are optional, but if you want to use your driver’s license to board a domestic flight, you’ll need it. After the May deadline, if you don’t have a REAL ID driver’s license and want to board a plane, you will need to have a passport or other government-accepted ID with you (see https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification).

Subscription to Listserv for Non-Gmail Accounts

 

Our Listserv is a free members-only service designed to offer information on club-related activities and other “news you can use.” It has been our practice to proactively subscribe new KOPSC members. If you’re not already on our Listserv, and if you do not have a Gmail account, we now have to jump through a couple of extra hoops for you to subscribe. GoogleGroups recently reduced our capability of proactively adding new members if they do not have Gmail accounts. For non-Gmail members, we have to issue an invitation to subscribe. This will appear to be from GoogleGroups and will no doubt go to a spam folder.

 

To join the Listserv without the invitation, simply send an email to kopsc+subscribe@googlegroups.com. You will receive a message asking you to confirm your request. Our moderator will confirm your membership and approve your subscription. Of course, the email request doesn’t always work, so if you haven’t heard back from us within 24 hours, please email the moderator.
