    FRIDAY NIGHT BOWLING

    Casual, non-stressful, group bowling for those who wish to participate.  

    Each week we will send out an email to see who is interested in bowling that Friday, then we  will reserve the lanes. That’s right, you will not need to commit to bowl every Friday; only those Fridays you want to.

    Email Pete at scwdc@scwdc.org to get on the regular email list. 

    This event is run every Friday night.  You only pay the leader for the lane costs of $11 for three games.  You may rent your own bowling shoes if needed.

    We have regulars who come every week and some only occasionally.  Beginners are welcome.  Bowling skill not required.

    MONDAY NIGHT VOLLEYBALL

    Because the gym at Jelleff is not available on Federal holidays, there will be NO Ski Club volleyball on:

    Monday, January 15, 2018 (Martin Luther King Day)
    Monday, February 19, 2018 (President's Day)

    Monday, April 16, 2018 (D.C. Holiday, Emancipation Day)
    Monday, May 28, 2018 (Memorial Day observed)
    Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day observed)
    Monday, November 12, 2018 (Veteran's Day observed)

    Good coed, pickup volleyball Monday evenings in upper Georgetown / Glover Park.  Advance reservations are not required; just show up. Teams are formed on the spot. Optional beer and pizza  (or other items on the menu) after volleyball at Froggy Bottom Pub, 2021 K Street, NW.

    We meet almost every Monday evening throughout the year with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day. In June, July, and August we play outdoor (sand court) volleyball at the Lincoln Memorial Courts.

    Location:

    We have three nets at Jelleff Community Center, 3265 “S” Street, NW, just a half a block off Wisconsin Avenue.  We play Mondays, starting from 6:45 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.  $5 for Ski Club members, $8 for non-members. No bills over $20 accepted. There is an ATM on Wisconsin Ave. half a block away.

    Parking:  Free parking in the lot at Jelleff.  Right when we start, a lot of soccer parents are picking up their young players, so the parking lot tends to be full until 7:15 p.m.  If you arrive earlier than that, just park on “S” Street away from the parking meters – it’s a two-hour zone.  This is a very safe neighborhood.

    With Ski Club volleyball, you will typically play more games per evening than in most leagues.  We have two levels of play:  intermediate and advanced. This is not “picnic volleyball.” We play by the rules.  Play on our advanced court is often fierce. They tend to play 5/1 volleyball with a three-person attack on the front line.(See playing advice below.)

    Leaders:  John Henrehan, johnhenrehan@yahoo.com, or Ira Silvergleit, irates@verizon.net.  Questions?  Hit us before Monday evening, because we’ll be playing volleyball!

    Ability Level / Having Fun?
    Can you bump?  Can you set?  If your answers are “yes”, try our intermediate court.  Rusty players are welcome. We''ll give you a few tips to get you going.

    Skill levels vary on the intermediate court, so, for safety reasons, we try to stress three house rules:  1)  Do not chase the ball onto another court.  i.e. stop running at the boundary line;  2)  When possible, try to take all three hits before returning the ball over the net;  3)  The setter gets the second touch.  No matter where the ball is on the court, the setter gets the second touch UNLESS the setter calls “help.”

    TUESDAY NIGHT SOFTBALL

    Leader is Bill WIlkinson reliablebillw@yahoo.com

    Weather permitting, we play  at Annandale Community Park in Annandale, VA starting at 6:00 PM. Cost is only $2.00, no registration required. All players are welcome, male and female, all ability levels. Bring a glove if you have one. Afterwards, join the group at a local restaurant for pizza.

    Our season begins April 10 and continues each Tuesday during the spring and summer seasons. 

    Location:

    For the newbies, we welcome all players, male and female, of all ability levels – these games are strictly for fun and we offer equal-opportunity chances to excel (we don’t count strikes, and Bill’s team always wins)!  If you have your own glove or equipment, great; if not, we share nicely.

    After the game, neither rain, sleet or snow will stop us from having pizza and beer to discuss the finer points of the game. Pass the word to softball players and those who wish to be softball players.  Always check the Calendar for possible last-minute changes.

    The Golden City of Prague and the Rivers Elbe & Moldau
          Explore the Legendary Bohemia - Cruising & Biking these Historic Rivers 

    With Optional Extension to the Irish Capital of Dublin

    July 7 - 15, 2018 (or 19th w/Extension)

    Price: $2,480 Dbl  + $400 with Extension

    Leader:  Frank Peñaranda

    The “Heart of Europe” is a good description of the destination for our next Bike & Barge adventure. The region formerly known as “Bohemia” evokes exotic culture, customs and history; not just for its resplendent cities, but its villages and country-side. Our starting and ending point is the city of Prague, one of the few large cities whose buildings, monuments and culture were spared from the devastation that WWII brought to the rest of civilized Europe. We will have ample opportunity to visit this major capital of Eastern Europe, but also the villages and hamlets that dot the course of the two principal rivers in our journey: The Vltava (also known as the Moldova or Die Moldau in German) and the Elbe; all close and personal on bikes or on foot.

    This promises to be one of the most rewarding trips we have offered, and will fill-up very quickly, so if you are even remotely interested, please contact the trip leader immediately to reserve a spot

    Tired of real politics and want to have some fun with laughing at it.  Capitol Steps have been doing just that since 1981. They will be presenting a free show at Mason District Park, in Annandale. With all the odd political things happening these days, I am sure this show will be the best!
    We cannot reserve seats, so try to be there by 5:30.  We will try to save some seats inside the ampitheater, on the right side near the back, but we can’t reserve them, so if there are none remaining when you come, come on in anyway.  Come laugh with us.

    In case the weather looks bad, call their hotline at 703-324-7469. For more information, visit their web site, www.capsteps.com. or contact Bernie Joiner at choosri@aol.com, or 703-969-2881

    Date and Time:  Saturday, July 28  12:00 noon

    Cost: $135/person which includes food and drink at the end of the day. You pay Precision Rafting directly.

    Location:  Precision Rafting, 715 Morris Ave, Friendsville, MD  21531
    www.­precisionrafting­com

    We will raft the Upper Yough (pronounced yock) in western Maryland with Precision Rafting on Saturday, July 28. This is an intense trip through 20 continuous Class III – V rapids with an impressive 115 ft per mile drop; sure to give you an adrenalin rush. You must be in good physical condition, very comfortable in the water (you could wind up there) and some rafting experience is highly preferred. This is not a float trip! Everyone works hard to keep the raft (with a guide and three passengers) out of trouble.
    Rafting starts about noon and we finish late afternoon, so this can be done in one day. Carpooling will be planned to Friendsville, MD – about 3 hours.

    If you are interested, please email, text or call as soon as possible. The trip is limited by the number of spaces the outfitter has available, so it will fill fast. Contact Bill Rakow, 703-626-6630(C), billrakow@gmail.com.

You can take the helm and help trim the sails, or just sunbathe on the bow if that’s your preference. Enjoy taking pictures or peering through the binoculars to see the beautiful osprey diving with their sharp talons to grab a fish to take back to the nest to quiet the peeping chicks. And as you sail out of the marina onto the Chesapeake Bay.  If conditions permit, we can drop anchor and take a swim. After a great day of sailing, the fun continues with dinner at a local restaurant (separate cost).

We reserve boats and confirm skippers based on the number of people who have signed up 3 days in advance.  If you can sail at the last minute, contact the trip leader or come to the marina; we’ll try to accommodate you if we have space.  If you’ve made reservations and can’t make it, please contact the trip leader as soon as possible.  Check-in time is at 9:45 AM, 15 minutes prior to sailing time.  Meet at the picnic tables by the marina's office trailer.

    Belle Haven Marina is located on the George Washington Parkway about one mile South of Old Town Alexandria and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.  It is NOT the marina by Reagan National Airport.

    Captain Larry will gladly share his extensive knowledge. You can take the helm and help trim the sails, or just sunbathe on the bow if that’s your preference. Enjoy taking pictures or peering through the binoculars to see the beautiful osprey diving with their sharp talons to grab a fish to take back to the nest to quiet the peeping chicks. And as you sail out of the Patapsco River onto the Chesapeake Bay, you can see the Francis Scott Key Bridge and the buoy marking the location of where Key penned the Star Spangled Banner. There may be an optional dinner scheduled before the sail (separate cost).

    Weather:  We sail rain or shine! Sails are cancelled only if there is severe weather or extreme heat as determined by the skipper in conjunction with the Bay Sail Coordinator.
