Calhoun’s on Bearden Hill
By Joyce Mayer
It’s a great time to get the body and mind ready for the upcoming ski season.
Bryan Milsap will once again show us the right way to stretch and exercise to get the “bod” ready to go out and attack
the slopes and also to help prevent muscle pulls and injuries. This will even help our non-skiers tone up!
Come and enjoy the fine foods and beverages at Calhoun’s on Bearden Hill. Social time around 6:00 PM, program
and meeting at 7:00.

Telemark & Backcountry Skiing
November 19, 7-9 pm Barleys
By Ben Kadas & Rob Mayer
Telemark and Backcountry Skiing Gear and Video Night, Wednesday, November 19, 7-9pm at Barleys (upstairs in the back
Join us for pizza, beverages, gear, and awesome video footage as we show off the art and sport that is Telemark skiing. We
will have a variety of Telemark and alpine touring ski gear, as well as tools for getting around in the backcountry and staying
safe in avalanche terrain. We'll have some of the hottest extreme Telemark skiing videos as well as some fun instructional videos, some come check out the free heel craze.
What is Telemark? Telemarking is the "original skiing style", developed by Norwegian Sondre Norheim in the late 1800's. Originally it was used as an alternative to snowshoeing, allowing skiers to glide across the snow as done in cross-country skiing. As
ski gear has developed, the Telemark turn has evolved into a thing of beauty and power. Unlike alpine skiing, Telemark skiers
have a "free heel" which allows them greater flexibility and range of motion during the turn. Recent innovations in Telemark
specific ski gear, tall plastic boots, strong bindings, and wide skis, have allowed Telemarkers to equal their alpine brethren.

their program to include a Terrain Park Competition. All of the races are flighted so that you only race against people
of similar ability to you. So whether you can make it out to all 6 wkds, or just want to come to a couple to get warmed

Big South Fork
February 22 - March 1
By Bill Bands
In Jackson Hole, the Old West still lives in one of the most charming towns you’re likely to find anywhere. From the
“local color” of the Town Square’s elk antler arches and the nightly Jackson Hole Shootout, to the unique shops and
restaurants along the boardwalks, Jackson truly has something for everyone. The wonders of Yellowstone, just a
short drive up the road, are sure to open the eyes of even the most experienced traveler. Someone said that Jackson
is somewhere between a five star ski resort and Custer’s last stand!
We’ll be staying at the 49’er Inn, which is located in downtown Jackson Hole. We stayed there in 2006 and every one
enjoyed it. The Suites are quite large and all come with microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator. There is also
a “fireplace suite” option with an even larger room, upgraded interior and a gas fireplace.
( Included in the package is an expanded Continental breakfast in the hotel restaurant, (waffles, boiled eggs, hot and cold cereal etc.) I personally like this setup because I get to see almost everyone early, and we can plan that days and nights activity. We will have an awards dinner some time during the week,
the owner of the Inn, an avid hunter, will be our host, he and the staff prepare an Elk BBQ for our group. The Inn is
located about 20 minutes from the slopes. Busses pick us up at the Inn’s front door and whisk us up the mountain.
Storage is available on the mountain for those who don’t want to carry their skis and boots back and forth.
Our airline connections are with United thru Denver, leaving Knoxville 3:46pm arriving Jackson Hole 7:32pm on Sunday, we arrive back in Knoxville 3:12 Sunday week, keep in mind this is a Sunday to Sunday trip. Discount lift tickets
will be available, also we are planning to ski Grand Targhee, one, or possibly two days, weather permitting. The price
for all this fun is only $1170.00 per person double occupancy; add $40 per person for the fireplace option. I think this
trip will sell out quickly, so send your deposit of $200 pp, made out to KSC, mail it to Bill Bands, PO Box 20235, Knoxville 37940 [email protected] 609-9058

March 28 – April 4

This trip is being billed as our luxury trip of the winter, so for those who have requested a more posh ski trip with skiin, ski-out convenience, this is the one for you. Where else do you get handed free freshly baked chocolate chip
cookies at the end of the day as you leave the slopes!!
Beaver Creek was built with the influences of renowned resorts in Europe such as St. Moritz, Cortina, and Spain’s Val
d’Aran. This led to the creation of a unique mountain resort full of excitement and village luxury. The towns of Avon
and Edwards are located minutes from Beaver Creek and offer a variety of entertainment, shopping and restaurants.
There is a free shuttle to these towns from Beaver Creek Village.
The package price for this trip is $1,420.00. Our luxury accommodations are the Highlands Lodge right next to the
Highlands lift, which provides us “Ski-in, Ski-out” comfort and we’re only a short walk to the Village restaurants and
shops. We will be staying in 3-bedroom, 3-bath townhomes, with private balconies, wood burning fireplaces, full service concierge, bell service, hot tubs, ski storage, washers & dryers, and the privilege of using the Allegria Spa health
club. Included in the package, of course, is airfare on Delta, flying into Eagle Airport, arriving 10:15 a.m. with only
one change. Then it will be just a short bus ride to our condos. Also included is baggage handling at the lodge.
Some of the mountain stats are 1,805 total skiable acres, 4,000 ft. vertical, 11,400 ft. elevation, 148 trails, 17 lifts (2
gondolas, 10 high speed quads, 2 triple chairs, 3 double chairs), 3 terrain parks, and their longest run is 2-3/4 miles.
Also there are 2 bowls. Grooming is their passion here, where it is done 20 hrs. per day, 7 days a week. The result
is 775 groomed acres for your skiing pleasure. One unique fact about Beaver Creek is that it is 100% powered by the
wind, and they recycle over a million pounds of material every year. Even the trail maps are printed on recycled paper!
It is known that Colorado ski areas usually get the most snow in March. Remember last season when our Vail trip had
3 ft. of snow during the week. So don’t miss out, send in your deposit + first payment of $500 for this wonderful location to Carol Waldbauer, 12004 Taylors Landing, Knoxville, TN 37934, phone 966-9966, email [email protected]
KSOC needs your help!
Are you good at, or want to learn how to put together a Newsletter.
The KSOC newsletter is one of the most important items your
dues pay for. The newsletter is one of the primary sources of
information for the club. Jim Smith has been putting together
our newsletter for over 10 years and has decided to retire from
this job. We highly appreciate his service to the club! He has
decided that he will continue until his tenure is over in May 2009.
However, we desperately need to find a club member that would
like to fill his position. This job will take some training to learn
how Jim puts it all together. If you are interested, please contact
Jim or myself. Our phone numbers can be found on the back

Gute Morgen! Early morning, Sept. 27th, after a couple of last minute cancellations,
twenty eight fun loving members left Knoxville on a new adventure trip to Helen, Georgia, to experience a beer drinking festival
similar to the real thing in Munich. The party
got started early on the bus with juice, doughnuts and lots of Bloody Marys! By the time
we arrived in Helen about 4-1/2 hrs. later everyone was in the party spirit! The town definitely had a Bavarian atmosphere with
the type of architecture. Departing the bus, various groups scattered in the town looking for the nearest “beer stube” or lunch
restaurant. Everywhere, pitchers of beer were flowing. Don’t know who won the most beer-drinking contest in our group, but
two guys I know well, did a pretty good job of it that day!! One guy I know very well, was the hit of the town with his tall beer
mug hat and Oktoberfest shirt from Munich. Everyone wanted to buy a hat like that! After a lunch of wurst, sauerkraut, potato
salad, or red cabbage, most people went on a shopping tour of the many touristy souvenir shops. Some also checked out the
many outdoor beer gardens. A large group found a sports bar where they watched UT lose to Auburn and, of course, drank
more beer! The main “Oktoberfestivities” were held at the large Festhalle where most people ended up for more German food,
polka dancing and beer drinking that evening. One particular guy, namely Jerry, who had to be talked into going there, ended
up being a real party animal dancing just about every dance, not leaving out any gal at the big table! Prost Jerry! There was a
good polka band and the comedy female duo of “Lorelei & Schatzi” to entertain us. About 9 p.m., everyone wandered back to
the bus to drive to our hotel for the night.
On Sunday, after a late buffet breakfast at the hotel, we boarded our bus and drove about an hour to our first beautiful winery.
The Wolf Mountain Winery, in the hills of northern Georgia, with a great mountain view. We were blessed with a warm sunny
day. It was a first class winery where wedding receptions and fancy Sunday brunches are held. The tasting was excellent and
several bought their favorite kind. After a two-hour visit, we were off to our next winery a short distance away. This was the Frogtown Winery, another beautiful estate
with a mountain view from their large deck on which a group photo was taken. Here
we sat at large round linen clothed tables for our private tasting of 10 various wines.
Both of these wineries were quite impressive and produced some great red and white
wines. A third winery was on the schedule, but after four hours of touring, and tasting
many wines already, the group consensus was to head back to K-town. It was a fun
trip and everyone seemed to enjoy it all. An added bonus was our super friendly
Mayes bus driver, another Jim Smith, who knew a lot about this part of northern

eat as many tasty snowball look-a-likes as your stomach can stomach! Be sure to bring the whole family to watch a thunderous and spectacular fireworks display at the base of Sugar Mountain Resort, Saturday evening at 5:45 pm. After a long, hard day of skiing and snowboarding there’s nothing better than good food, warm drinks, and live music by Boss Hawg from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.
Don’t miss the Edge of the World/Burton Rail Jam Expression Session at 12 noon on Sunday as talented snowboarders pull off some
of most spectacular tricks. Later in the day marvel as blocks of ice become beautiful winter works of art.
