SnowBall Information – Rescheduled for November 12, 2022

We are sad to announce that we have made the difficult decision to once again postpone the SnowBall for another year. This is not something that came lightly, or without a lot of thought. The first piece came after a conversation with my contact with our band, Rum Runners. After playing the Milford Oyster Festival and another large outdoor event this summer, several members of the band came down with COVID, including some who where fully vaccinated. They are currently very leery of playing such a large indoor event such as ours. The vulnerability demonstrated at these outdoor events highlights the continued concern surrounding large gatherings. The second part of the decision came about after polling the presidents of our ski cubs. Several said straight out that it was unlikely any of their members would attend, and most of the rest quoted greatly reduced numbers. The question was raised if we could mandate proof of vaccination, but after checking with the governor’s office, we are not allowed to make such demands. We can only follow CDC and local guidelines. Without a large number of attendees, we would be unlikely to even cover the cost of the SnowBall, never mind raise any money for the CSC.

On a much more positive note, our efforts are going to shift to arranging a large outdoor picnic for late spring/early summer of 2022. This would most likely take place at Falcon Field in New Britain, and would allow everyone to get out and socialize, enjoy some good food and music, and yes, dance! (There is a large pavilion we can use.) Details are just starting to be worked out, so stay tuned!
