Summit Trekkers

Thursdays | July – September

The Trekkers do strenuous hikes (slightly slower than the Mountain Goats), usually 8-10 miles with 1,500-2000+ elevation gain. They hike mostly (not always) on trails. Formerly known as the “Trail Goats”, the group originated to provide an alternative to Mountain Goat hikes. For more information email Susan (Sue) Johnson at suesue.paris@gmail.com.

Summit Trekkers

Strength & Balance

Wednesdays from 9:30AM to 10:15AM

Reduce your risk of falling by performing agility exercises and placing positive stress on the bones, muscles, and cardiovascular system to keep them healthy and strong. Walk with more assurance and confidence. This is a fun class for all levels to improve your range of motion and ability to move your body quickly, easily, and with control & balance.

Dominoes | Mexican Train

Every Tuesday at 1pm to 3:30-4pm (depending on how many people we have)

A fun group that plays Mexican Train. If you have never played, we will teach you.  The game takes about 2 minutes to learn. Dominoes are available at the Senior Center or you may bring your own.  We meet in the hobby room. Come early for a delicious lunch with Chef Sam.

Beginning June 6 we will also be playing at 6pm for the summer.  The 1pm group will continue to meet. Please contact Carol at (847) 903-4521 or skinnyme1025@gmail.com for more information.

Monthly Trips

The Monthly Trips group will meet once per year to create a schedule consisting of one trip per month. Depending on the number of committee members, each person will serve as lead for specific trips. The trips are usually for a day. Examples include:

  • Summer sculpture/art exhibit in Loveland
  • Denver Art Museum
  • Silver Plume Melodrama
  • Specific theater/music events
  • Crane Migration in Montrose (2-day event)

Participants usually meet at the SCCSC to carpool.  Anyone wishing to join this committee should contact Mickie Parsons

Turtles & Snails

Thursdays | Year Round

The “Turtles” hike all year round on Thursday mornings. We switch to snowshoes and yaktrax in winter, rec paths during mud season and easy hikes all summer. Our hikes are usually 3 to 5 miles. Sometimes we have some “Snails” who hike at a slower pace and not as far. We want our group to be accessible to all so come and enjoy our beautiful mountains.

If you are interested in helping as a leader or co-leader please contact Mickie Parsons at mickiepar@msn.com.

Timberline Toppers Square Dance Club

Select Saturdays, usually at 6PM

A fun activity of moving with a partner, in patterns as directed by the professional “caller”. For those without a partner, the Club welcomes singles and they enjoy dancing with several other singles. Square Dance is good exercise that is mentally challenging without fancy footwork. Most dances are at the Senior & Community Center.

Mainstream and Plus dances 1st and 3rd Saturdays. To view the Timberline Toppers calendar, please visit our website. For more information, contact Dave Bernhard, 703-887-5421 or email ddst44@gmail.com.

Scam Alert

Scams are recently on the rise.  According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), anyone who demands payments by gift card is always a scammer.  Gift cards should never be used as payments to someone asking for money.  Here is an FTC web link with more information on gift card scams.

Another fraud scheme that’s on the rise is the “imposter” scam.  For more information on various imposter scams, please once again visit this web link on the FTC website.

Cards & Games

Every Thursday, 1:00 – 4:00 PM

We are a fluid group that comes together to play cards or games. We usually meet in the hobby room of the Senior Center. We play weekly, normally year round, as folks are in town. All Summit Seniors members can join us. We furnish cards, games we can pull out, and visit a lot. We enjoy our time together, win or lose. Bring yourself, your jokes, your laugh and join us. For more details, please call Linda McKinley at 970-389-3212 or email rmckinley@sprynet.com.

Summit Older Bushwackers (SOBs) do intermediate backcountry trail hikes on Tuesdays, mostly in Summit County. These typically range from 4 – 7 miles and with 400 – 1500 ft of elevation gain. They are led by volunteer trip leaders, usually a different leader each week. We meet from June through mid October, weather permitting. We usually leave the car-pool location at 8:30, get on the trail by 9:00, and are back between 12 and (rarely) 2 pm.  Check the weekly email for updates to times or locations.

We are thrilled to announce a brand new class that we will be offering through our “Aging Gracefully” series – Tai Chi for Arthritis. Tai Chi improves strength, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, and balance. It’s been proven to improve cardiovascular fitness, lower blood pressure, prevent falls and help people who have arthritis. This class is a benefit to everyone, whether you have arthritis or not, and accommodations will be available for all movements (and chairs will be available).

Come ready to have fun! Wear fitting shoes and comfortable clothing. And don’t forget your water bottle. Class will be presented by the wonderful Lizzy de Guia, RN Trauma Program Specialist at St. Anthony/Common Spirit. Call the front desk with any questions (970) 668-2940.

Quilting & Sewing

Every fourth Monday (except December), 5:30 PM

We are a group of people who like to work with fabric—quilting or otherwise. Persons with any skill level are welcome to join our group to learn and share ideas. The meetings are informal. Some people do handwork during the meetings; Group sewing retreats are scheduled several times per year.  Please bring your own project and material to work on. For details, contact Sharon Maroni at matravlr@gmail.com.

Yoga

Mondays & Fridays, 10:00AM – 11:15AM

Melinda’s yoga classes vary depending on who shows up and what their experience is, and what their expectations are for the day. It is truly a community-centered offering!

Typically, one can expect the practice to include  breathing, moving in coordination with breathing, balancing, strengthening and stretching. The classes begin and end with mindfulness and intention and the students “tune in” with mantras and close with a song. Melinda teaches from her experiences with Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga, and offers and encourages modifications and even chair yoga.

All levels are welcome. Most people leave a $5 contribution for the instructor as she is not paid. Mats are available.

Meals on Wheels

Delivered Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday

The mission of Mountain Meals on Wheels is to provide healthy and nutritious meals to adults of any age who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals due to health issues. Meals are prepared in a commercial kitchen located at the Summit County Community & Senior Center. Meals are delivered by volunteers on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This program is heavily reliant on volunteer drivers. Drivers are required to have their own vehicle, and be able to pass a criminal background check. If you are interested in driving for this program, or for more information, please email seniors@summitcountyco.gov. This is a year round volunteer opportunity.

GALS Group

First Wednesday of the month at 4:00PM

This is a women’s  social group, open to all women that are members of Summit 50 Plus.  GALS usually meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 4PM at a restaurant or a member’s home. Participants bring an appetizer to share and a beverage of their choice if meeting at a private home. These gatherings provide an opportunity to meet  new friends, exchange ideas and the potential for planning future shared experiences.  Contact either Bev Muraski at 937-307-9914 or Carole Woodbury at 303-437-5622, the GALS co-chairs, for up to date information.

Mahjong

Every Tuesday & Thursday from 1-4PM

We play American mahjong with tiles and a structured card which changes annually. Not only is it challenging but strategy, skill, downright luck and the ability to change your original plan will help you make a mahjong. Since we all play with the same card, we have winter and summer visitors eager to join the local Summit County residents.  Please come and play with us  in the Hobby Room at the Senior Center.

Mountain Goats

Wednesdays | Mid May – September

The Mountain Goats are Summit 50+’s most challenging hiking group. Our mid-season hikes are typically 8-12+ miles with 3000-4000+’ elevation gain. They usually contain a significant off-trail component with some Class 2+ scrambling, moving at a brisk pace. Our members make our hikes a priority in their summer plans because they love hiking, and they love hiking with our group. We hike every Wednesday from mid-May through the end of September. If this sounds like what you are up for doing on a regular basis with a group, please email summitmountaingoats@gmail.com for further information and a possible try-out hike..

Thanks for your interest in the Loosey Goosey Ski Group, our Après Ski potlucks and Summit 50 Plus.

 

Established in 1989, we are a loosely (Loosey Goosey) structured group of fun and active folks 50 years old and over who ski and ride together on specified days at local resorts and enjoy gathering at weekly socials during the season.

 

Our group, with a membership of over 200 local and visiting senior skiers, coordinates popular potluck après ski parties on most Thursdays, from 3:30 to 5:30, December through March at the Summit Community & Senior Center in Frisco. We are now part of the Summit Seniors, a non profit organization, that is the social organization connected to the Center.

 

Our members participate in many local ski day programs including the Meetup 50+ Ski Group at Breckenridge on Tuesdays and at Keystone on Thursdays. When you attend our potluck après ski parties you will always hear about other members joining up to travel to Loveland, A-Basin, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek, Steamboat, Cooper and other resorts near and far.

 

Our nominal, but critical, annual membership fee this year of $15 helps cover the costs of weekly room rental fees, serving supplies, some beverages, and our annual membership party which is held in January. Members also receive our emailed announcements. All members must also belong to the Summit 50Plus.

Cross Country Skiing Group

Wednesdays | December 13, 2023 – March 27, 2024

Cross country skiing with designated leader, info provided for trail difficulty, distance, and elevation gain. Easy-moderate & a couple of upper level backcountry trails on Wednesdays.  The meeting time for carpooling (recommended) to the trailhead is always 9:30 AM.  A weekly email is sent out with tour details.  Roundtrip distances are usually 3-6 miles with an elevation gain of roughly 300-800 feet. Outings are suitable for all levels of skiers who have mastered snowplow and herringbone skills. You will need backcountry skis with metal edges and fish scales, or know how to wax and/or bring skins.  After some outings, a volunteer host will provide light appetizers, hearty soups, dessert and beverages in her home (a $10 donation is recommended). Contact the host by Monday noon for a reservation and headcount, as all lunches are limited in number and skiers are the priority. This year we are fortunate to have eight hostesses and seven restaurants lined up. We also have a few new trails this year and our awesome leaders are all coming back to help out.

Summit 50 Plus Golf Program

May through September

The Summit 50 Plus Golf Program is an excellent way to meet other Summit 50 Plus folks who have the same passion for the sport. The golf courses in the area are beautiful, challenging and provide opportunities for players of all skill levels. Golf courses in the program include the Keystone River and Ranch courses as well as the Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks.  Golf discounts are given for the Raven and Keystone courses. These include: green fees, merchandise and lesson discounts.

Three programs exist for the 50 Plus golfer:

  1. The golf program coordinator has arranged discounted green fees at each of the courses identified above for Summit 50 Plus members. To participate in this program, folks must be up to date on Summit 50 Plus membership dues and have purchased a Summit 50 Plus Golf Card at the Community Center for $5.
  2. Boomers on the Links: The Summit 50 Plus Golf Program promotes and supports a weekly Tuesday clinic at the Keystone River Course. During these outings, participants play nine holes of golf, receive a group lesson and are treated to lunch for a reasonable price. Those interested in this clinic should contact the Keystone Pro Shop at (970) 496-1520 to reserve a spot.
  3. Special golf outings are arranged at courses apart from those mentioned above. These outings give the Summit 50 Plus golfer an opportunity to try courses not played before. The group aims for two special outings in the summer during July and August.

If you would like to help with the Summit 50 Plus Golf Program, please call Tom McCullough at 630-880-8024 or email Tmccull567@aol.com.
