                                       SPRING FLING  May 11, 2024

The 2024 Annual Spring Fling party at Lake Milton was a great hit.  Over 70 people attended the event, where they were treated to great homemade food, comraderie, and the sounds of The Dickey White Band.  It was a chilly May evening, but we stayed warm by dancing the night away.

                    Fall 2024 Wine Trip to Finger Lakes, NY

Well, here we are again….another year later from a Warren Ski Club wine trip!  We had so much fun at the Finger Lakes in 2018 with 31 members that we decided to go back again!  This year we had 45 members sign up for this amazing trip and had plenty to say when we arrived home!  Here are the highlights of the weekend:


Friday, October 13:

We left the Lowe’s parking lot in Howland and traveled to Hammondsport, New York where we stopped for lunch.  Shortly after that, we arrived at our first winery: Pleasant Valley Wine Company.  This particular winery is the oldest winery in the Finger Lakes region being founded in 1860.  How did they make it through prohibition, you might ask?  By making sacramental sparkling wine.  After our wine tasting session and quick tour through the wine museum at this establishment, we were back on the bus and chugging up the hill to our next winery.  Well, the bus finally made it and we arrived at Bully Hill Vineyards and, wow, what a great view of Keuka Lake!  The grounds at Bully Hill were just as spectacular as well.  Our group, plus a few others, took up their entire tasting room and, man, what an energized tasting that was courtesy of the staff!  Soon, however, it was over and we left and went back to the hotel, checked in, and headed to downtown Corning for dinner.


Saturday, October 14:

Up and at ‘em early with a hot breakfast at the hotel and loading the bus to our next adventure.  We soon arrived at Watkins Glen State Park and began our hike of the area.  The Gorge Trail lead us along a walk of 19 waterfalls to view.  If you made it the 1.5 miles to the end of the trail then your reward was a 180-step climb up Jacob’s Ladder to the top and the North Rim Trail! What spectacular views were seen, despite the rain an hour into our hike!  If you have never been here before we highly recommend it!  Not long after our hike we were in the town of Watkins Glen eating lunch and off to our next two wineries: Torrey Ridge Winery and Earle Estates Meadery.  These are two classic Warren Ski Club favorites with plenty of great wine to choose from!  Once we had our wine slushies we were on our way back to Corning for dinner once again.


Sunday, October 15:

Our last morning in the Finger Lakes was another action-packed day!  We started the day with another delicious and hot breakfast, loaded the bus, and headed back to Watkins Glen.  This time, we did a little something different.  We took a guided boat tour of Seneca Lake courtesy of Captain Bill’s Lake Cruises.  This one hour guided tour of the deepest lake in New York (618 feet) held many interesting facts of the area, the Native American tribes that shaped the history of that part of the state, and also the fascinating details of the salt mines below the lake (2,000 feet under the lake!). Well, as fun as the boat ride was, it was time to get back to land.  All that learning really built up an appetite and we found ourselves back in downtown Watkins Glen for lunch before traveling to our final winery, Magnus Ridge.  Talk about saving the best for last as each one of the wines in their private tasting barrel room was paired with a cheese that was produced in the area.  All good things must come to an end, though, and we were soon headed for home, but not before a quick stop for dinner at Southern Tier Brewing Company just off of Lake Chautauqua in Lakewood, New York.  The rest of the trip was rainy, but we all eventually made it back. 


Many special thanks to everyone that went on this adventure!  Without folks signing up, there would be no trip!  We hope to see everyone next October 11-13 for our 2024 Fall Wine Trip!   Remember: If you wait too long, you might just miss out!

Full Moon Paddle

A full moon paddle took place on Friday, September 1 at the north end of Mosquito Lake.  We began paddling at 7:30, traveled north for an hour as the sun set, then head back to the starting point as the full moon rose.  Over 23 people participated in this event.  The weather was perfect, the sky clear, and the sun and moon did not disappoint.  Some bugs chose to join us, but were just annoying, not biting. 


Meeting point: Causeway Sports, 2233 Greenville Rd., Cortland (Route 88)

   This proved to be a flat water float, perfect for paddlers of all levels of experience.




                                     Scrappers Game


On June 30 the Warren Ski Club celebrated a great win for the Scrappers in two loges provided by club member, Tom Uher, and the Champion Insurance Company.  In addition to food, beverages, friends, and good times watching the game, we took this opportunity to help President Mark Gorse celebrate his retirement. 


A great evening of fun, ending with a fireworks display.





Boat Day at Lake Milton was a great success.  Around 40 people attended on a perfect day for a picnic and water fun.  We swam, boated, shared great food, played games, and toured the lake in a variety of boats, all brought to the event by club members.


Looking forward to Boat Day 2024.

Upcoming 2024 Activities include activities such as: the annual CMSC Golf Outing, a Bike Ride and Pub of the Month at Malovich's country home, an evening at the Warren Ampitheatre to listen to a Tribute Band, a Float down the beautiful Clarion River, Fireworks in Newton Falls, morning and sunset paddles, the D-Day re-enactment in Conneaut, OH, dancing at local bars and wineries, and other great, fun activities.
