Rochester Mn Traverski Ski & Sports Club will be hosting a Meet and Ski at Welch Village, January 12, 2013. Per the club newsletter, the theme will be pirates, so dress like one.
The usual meeting area is one of the fire pits near Madd Jaxx. Madd Jaxx is the east chalet and is located down what *appears* to be a service road to the left (as you face the chalet from the parking lot) of the main chalet.
There may be a discount lift ticket price available for purchase but I'm not aware of that at this time...this is "past event" recollection:) More info to be posted once I have it.
12/27/12 update: The host, Traverski, has a theme for this meet-n-ski...Pirates. So bring your hat, eye patch, parrot or whatever else you may have. Burgers, brats and hot dogs are provided around the lunch hour. I would imagine this would start around 11 and run until the food is gone.
