Starting primarily as a ski club, Altair Ski & Sports Club, the first meeting of ALTAIR SKI & SPORTS CLUB was held on March 11, 1987 with twenty-three members. Altair has since expanded to include year-round outdoor and indoor activities, including skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, bowling, volleyball, golf, and rafting. In addition to sports activities, Altair sponsors a wide variety of social events and out-of-town trips, including barbeques, card games, ballroom dance lessons, and theatre and dinner parties. We also actively contribute to community service projects, including fund-raisers for such groups as Food for Lane County and Relay for Life. Altair is an all-volunteer army of dedicated members working to have fun. All activities come from the ideas and efforts of our members. From event leaders to activity directors to the Altair board of directors, all are volunteers.
Our annual dues and any revenue gained through activities or other sources go to pay for club expenses such as meetings, activities, insurance, accounting, etc.
