Organisation of 2021 season

This is a tentative planning, subject to approval by the CERN Clubs Coordinating Committee and to change at any time depending on how the sanitary situation evolves   Alpine ski and snowboard The alpine ski and snowboard section courses that normally kick off the season will take a different form this year, with the aim of minimizing outings cancellation. Assuming that it will be allowed to conduct day outings already in January, they will be organized on the same principle as the normal after-course outings where participants sign up one outing at a time until it’s full. We hope to be able to provide this at half the capacity we usually do, so a maximum of two buses each day of the weekend. This also means that there will be significantly fewer places for beginners (if any at all) – may not apply for the snowboard section though. Following the first 5 weekends, we will try to run our usual day and weekend outing program along the same lines (also with restrictions). In order to participate in any of these outings, the club membership and a full Carte Neige is required as usual (make sure your medical certificate is in order). Another announcement will follow with the opening date for the membership subscription. Ski touring Ski Touring section is planning to propose the outings in an unchanged format, i.e. as they were in the previous years. There will be a couple of outings per weekend, we will continue using cars, but unlike last seasons we may ask participants to use them less occupied. Cross-country (ski de fond) The cross-country section is planning to conduct courses in La Vattay on Saturday afternoons in January and February 2021, as in previous seasons. Unlike in the past, the section will neither be in a position to provide for a bus nor ski passes for participants. Exceptionally in this season, participants are required to take care of their transportation and ski passes themselves. There is public transport from Gex to La Vattay at 13h00 and from La Vattay to Gex at 17h00. Instead of a course fee (as was in the past), in the coming season participants will pay a section fee of approximately 80-100 EUR (plus membership fee and the costs for the Carte Neige). The section fee will enable them to attend the courses and possible other outings offered by the section. While we try to have as many outings as possible, we cannot guarantee that all of them will happen due to the pandemic situation and we will unfortunately not be able to reimburse the section fee. No full-day outings (e.g. family outing) or weekend outings are foreseen. An introduction to biathlon may be organized, if feasible, at additional cost. In order to be able to better determine the cost of the section fee, we would like to ask those of you interested in the cross-country section activities in the upcoming season to complete this poll by Friday 30 October 2020. Whilst this is not binding and may change with the pandemic situation, thanks for indicating your interest as precisely as possible at this stage. Ski Fitness Ski Fitness classes are still suspended until further notice. Following the decree of Geneva’s state council of 21.12.2020, indoor sport activities of club members aged 16 and above are forbidden. (French version: Les cours de gymnastiques sont suspendus jusqu’à nouvel avis. Suivant l’Arrêté du 21 décembre 2020 adopté par le Conseil d’Etat de Genève, les activités sportives au sein d’une association exercées en salle sont interdites aux participants de 16 ans ou plus.) Generic rules All club activities will take place outside, respecting safety distance between participants and in compliance with the rules of the FFS, state, department, prefecture, and CERN Clubs Coordinating Committee. Name and contact details of outing/course participants will be tracked through an online subscription form which is verified by the instructor at the beginning of the course/outing (as in previous years). Limited car sharing: we will encourage people to meet directly on the outing parking and to limit sharing to two people. We will follow any state rules while visiting a restaurant/bar (face masks and social distance). There will be a safety responsible for the section who will be reachable and provide advice in case of any infections reported before or after an outing.

Information sur l’Assemblée Générale 2020 / Information about General Assembly 2020

Information sur l’Assemblée Générale 2020 En raison de la situation difficile causée par la pandémie, notre club n’a pas encore pu organiser l’assemblée générale 2020. Nous envisageons de le faire dans les mois à venir, probablement sous forme d’une réunion en ligne, et ceci avant le 31.05.2021. Les autorités françaises ont mis en place un cadre juridique correspondant, qui alloue également une prolongation de trois mois des délais légaux et de ceux fixés dans les statuts et règlements de l’association. En conséquence, les membres du comité peuvent continuer à exercer leurs fonctions en toute légalité jusqu’à la prochaine assemblée générale. (A noter : Selon nos statuts, l’assemblée générale doit avoir lieu dans les 6 mois qui suivent la clôture de l’exercice budgétaire qui a lieu le 31.08. En tenant compte de la prolongation de 3 mois, cela nous amène à la fin du mois de mai 2021.) Information about General Assembly 2020 Due to the difficult situation caused by the pandemic, our club was not able to organise a General Assembly in 2020. We plan to do this in the next few months, probably in form of an online meeting, by the 31.05.2021. The French authorities have established a legal framework for this, which allocates also a three-months extension of deadlines and time limits. In consequence, the committee members can continue exercising their functions in all legality until the upcoming General Assembly. (Note: our statutes define that the General Assembly must take place within 6 months after the book closing whose date is fixed on the 31.08. of each year. Adding the three months extension, this brings us to end of May 2021.)
