Facebook for AAC Falls Creek

Love it or hate it, Facebook has certainly become a widely used way of communicating. Some members are keen to use Facebook for club information and for sharing photos and chat about the club.

A Facebook page has been set up at https://www.facebook.com/fallshuette/ or just search Facebook for AAC Falls Creek. You'll know you are in the right place by the familiar wallpaper. You should be able to see the page without having a Facebook account.

Facebook will be an additional communication channel. The blog and email newsletters will still be used. In fact we are trialling a facility to automatically send blog posts to Facebook too. There is no pressure to use Facebook if you prefer not to.

Posts will need to be approved by our moderators before they appear. Please also be considerate of members and guests when posting or tagging.

The blizzard we've been waiting for

It's been a few years since we had a big snow storm. Starting on Friday 4th August we've had wind and whiteout and thunder and lightening - and lots of lovely dry snow.

It's been a bit chaotic on the road with trees down, power lines down, vehicle accidents and an influx of Hotham skiers unable to get up the road from Harrietville. They ran out of day car parks today. But as I write, the road has reopened to all traffic.

Ski patrol are reporting average snow depth of 150cm. The lodge is pretty full for the next few weeks but there are a few nights with beds for singles. Check the booking system


Club Race

You will be shocked to learn that Ross B didn't win this year.

That makes more sense when I add that the race had to be cancelled because of the blizzard conditions.
