We returned to the Silver Fox Inn for the second year and weren’t disappointed. Thirty-three folks traveled from near and far to share in the fun. We kicked off the week with our welcome pizza party. Among the group were recent and long-time members reconnecting with the gang. We welcomed the new members with our usual flair…starting with lots of introductions, sharing the history of the gang, and ensuring they
enjoyed plenty of snacks and refreshments.
Every day, people chose their preferred winter activity…some outdoors such as x-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, or downhill. And for those who wanted to stay warm, there was the Waterville Valley Athletic Club with a swimming pool, hot tub, and workout equipment. Reading a book by the roaring fireplace was also an option. No excuse to stay in the hotel room!
The downhill skiers enjoyed well-groomed trails and even some fresh snow. The snow was even better if you were the brave (or crazy) few who took the T-bar to the top of the mountain. Reports were also favorable for the x-country and hiking trails. Seems like everyone took good advantage of their ski passes and gear.
We shared stories over the ample buffet breakfasts and dinners at the Inn. After indulging in the delicious dessert selections, no one went to bed hungry. While playing the game Chronology, a hard-core group exercised their brainpower to remember the dates of obscure world events. There was keen competition, and a few rematches occurred throughout the week. Thanks, Karen Sch, for bringing the game with you and thanks to Tom J. for emceeing!
By the end of the week, everyone agreed we should make the Silver Fox Inn an annual destination!
Unfortunately, Bob G. couldn’t join the trip due to a family emergency. We send his family our best wishes and hope to see him soon. And Bob would like to thank Elizabeth B. for taking over and running the trip in his absence.
