Hello everyone!
I hope you are all staying warm during this Polar Vortex.  The good news is that it’s going to leave in time for our annual ski trip this weekend at Cascade Mountain! It’s forecast to be a balmy 34 degrees by the time we hit the slopes. RSVP today if you haven’t already (more information and links below).
As a reminder we won’t have a meeting this Sunday, February 3rd on account of the Super Bowl.  Go Packers (they’re in it right?)… 
We have a lot of great events coming up in addition to our planning for YP (Young Professionals) Week. Stay up-to-date by subscribing to our club calendar and by following us on Facebook.
Keep warm!
