Why not join in the fun!
Club membership not required for many of our events. Non-ski activities include: Kayaking, bike-riding, hiking, and Pubs-of-the Month. Additional events and activities can be added at any time, so watch our Facebook Page for new invitations to enjoy "year-round fun" with the Warren Ski Club.
Our Spring and Fall Hiking/Discovery and Winery tours have been a club favorite for years. This Spring we will travel to the famous HOCKING HILLS. The number of attendees is limited; registration will begin at the January membership meeting on Tuesday, January 3. Trips fill quickly, so you must act soon if you are interested in attending.
Additional information can be found in the February Newsletter found on the NEWSLETTER tab.
We had a GREAT TURNOUT for our annual Christmas Party Pub of the Month. On December 13 our members showed off their holiday vests, won prizes for their creativity, exchanged gifts, enjoyed great wine and beer, and sampled the unique and flavorful pizza created by the chef at Cork and Cap Tasting Room.
On October 14, the Warren Ski Club was well represented at the Ski Chalet's reinvention of its Preseason Party following two years of Covid-19 induced absence. Our club, along with other local clubs and ski resorts, set up tables with information outlining plans for the upcoming ski season. We met with current, past and possibly future club members, distributed information about our upcoming Ski Tips, and enjoyed refreshments and entertainment provided by the Ski Chalet and K2 Sports.
We continue to enjoy hiking local trails throughout the month of October. Both of the hikes taken during October 2022 provided attendees with both gorgeous landscapes and wonderful weather in which to enjoy them. We hiked the Cuyahoga National Park trails on Sunday, October 9 and our local Mill Creek Park on Sunday, October 30.
Full Moon Paddle
A full moon paddle took place on Friday, August 12 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)
Chairpersons: Terry & Rick Shifflet
Contact Number: 330-442-2863
This was a flat water float, perfect for beginners
We began our SPECTACULAR 65th Anniversary Celebration on the evening of July 27th with a special event at CharBenay's Wine on the River, Warren Ohio. We were taught how to make creative and delicious cocktails inspired by famous worldwide ski resorts.
A great time was had by those who attended this unique and creative event.
Each summer the club attends one or two Mahoning Valley Scrappers Games, usually on "Buck Night," when admission, hot dogs and drinks are all $1.00. This year, as part of our great "65th Anniversary" celebration, instead of meeting in the picnic area we occupied two loges on July 8th and watched as our president, Mark Gorse, threw out the first pitch. We enjoyed hot dogs, pizza, pop corn and beverages, and watched as our team won a very close game. But the evening was not yet over; the game was followed by a spectacular fireworks display.
RECAP OF THE JUNE 18 LAKE MILTON PADDLE
We had a very windy day on Lake Milton June 18th as a large group of WSC members took off on a group paddle. There were whitecaps on the lake, so we decided to paddle up the river instead. With 21 kayaks and 23 people going down-wind the start of the paddle went very well. When we turned around the wind was right in our face! One of our members said that she had been seeing the same landscape for way too long — could somebody please help her? My wife Karen and I tied a rope to two different kayaks and proceeded to paddle forward. With much effort we got back to the launch. After the workout we all went to the Lake Milton Brewery and had a few beers. It was a very good day of playing corn hole and just reminiscing once the paddle ended.

All who attended the Monster Truck Throwdown June 11th at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds enjoyed the competition and thrills. Of particular interest to club members was the opportunity to watch one of our member's son perform live and local. Corey Rummel, son of club member, Jane Rummel, drove the Avenger Truck that evening, doing flips, flying over cars, and racing the other trucks through an obstacle course. To enhance our pleasure, Corey was gracious enough to meet with club members and their families both before and after the show.
Our annual Spring Kick Off Party, the Spring Fling, was held on May 21 on the shores of Lake Milton, and was once again a great success. Over 50 people attended, sharing the wonderful food prepared by our members. We visited with old and new friends, danced, won prizes, and enjoyed the peaceful lakefront setting.
Clarion River Paddle
For the past two years the Warren Ski Club has paddled the Beautiful Clarion River, starting in Cooksburg and ending the float at the summer cabin owned by one of our members. This year's June paddle was followed by a fabulous picnic, games, swimming and lessons on the use of a stand up paddleboard (SUP). Nothing more could possibly have been packed into this great summertime event.
Once again this year, during the non-ski season club members and friends enjoyed group hikes in the beautiful Mill Creek Park. We explore this beautiful park, while getting exercise and fresh air, several time each year -- so watch our Facebook Page and Website to find out when the next one will take place.
Stay Active and Stay Heathy!
