President’s Report

Dear Members and Friends of Brattleboro Outing Club:

As we close our October, 2018, fiscal year, we are proud

of the gains we’ve enjoyed in membership in all our

programs, from tennis, paddling and rowing in the spring

and summer, to cross country skiing in winter.

Over the last year, we’ve developed greater community

awareness, updated our website, and improved our

facilities. We also helped launch a revitalized Junior Ski

Jumping program, which is now part of the Harris Hill Ski

Jump Association.

In just over three years from now, in 2022, BOC will

celebrate its 100th Anniversary! Our buildings and

equipment have served us well, but are in need of

significant attention; a new roof for our tennis clubhouse,

new sleds for our snow grooming equipment, to name just

two. We will be mounting a tax-deductible fundraising

campaign to address these concerns and ensure that BOC

remains strong as it enters its second century! I encourage

anyone who can offer help in organizing our fundraising

efforts to please contact me.

Brattleboro Outing Club is a true hidden gem of

Southeastern Vermont, nestled at the base of the

Connecticut River Valley, and providing access to

members who have taken advantage of Vermont’s beautiful

natural resources through BOC programs for nearly 100

years. Here’s to 100 more!

With warm wishes,
Chris Wocell

BOC President
