Hello Fellow Skiers,
Before I get into the details of the BIG EVENT at the end of the month (August 23rd), I would like to remind everyone about the Annual OSC Bowling Event this Sunday. Yours truly, the Snow Dog, is again organizing the Annual OSC Bowling Event, August 9th, 3pm – 5pm, at the Aloma Bowl, ($18.00/pp cash discount). You can register (and pay) for this event online (www.orlandoskiclub.com ) or bring a check to the event. This is always is small, fun gathering. We usually head down the street to a sports bar afterwards to talk about the pins we “crushed”. Please sign up early. I need to give a final count to the Aloma Bowl by Thursday, August 6th. IF you do plan on coming, please make sure you let me know. Once I give the bowling alley a head count, the Club is responsible for all the no shows. There may not be room for you if you just show up at the event.
The Orlando Ski Club’s Ski Trip Kick-Off Meeting is August 23rd, 3pm – 5pm, at the Dubsdread Golf Course, 549 West Par Street, Orlando, FL. This is the Club’s Biggest Event each year. This Kick-Off Meeting is the result of many hours of work by the Travel Committee and your Trip Leaders. As I stated in a previous newsletter, three (3) ski trips have been in the planning for over a 1½ years. These trips are Whistler/Blackcomb, Mt. Bachelor (Oregon) and Zell am See (Austria), each are fantastic locations. The Club sends ski representatives to each location to discover what is new and great about location, such as lodging, restaurants, non-ski activities, etc. DO NOT be intimidated by the two locations you have never heard about. Mt. Bachelor and Zell am See are each going to be one of those “dream” trips you could never imagine. Oh! I forgot about the incredible resort in British Columbia, Whistler/Blackcomb. This trip is only “2” huge mountains in some of the most beautiful scenery in the northwest!
Wait! I am not done. The Club start’s its ski season trips in December with a fun, short excursion to Vail, VAIL, VAIL! It needs no further explanation.
Wait, Wait!! Then the Club is going back to (without a doubt) its favorite ski location Snowmass!!! We are staying at the Top of the Village Condos, can do a little trip to Aspen, and ski 4 mountains. Oh, you know this already. Don’t you?
Wait, Wait, YES, I said, Wait!!! And “Yes”, the Club’s ski season is closing again with a ski trip to Big Sky! But that is not the BIG news. Miz Moosie is coming out of retirement to again lead the Big Sky Moose Tour Trip!! I have heard rumors regarding a few people who are planning to go on this ski trip. A few of them have been there before and have (shall we say) a dubious reputation. Furthermore, I also know the assistant Trip Leader (and yours truly) in enjoy a local strange brew called “Moose Drool”. So, I hereby dub this final Club trip of the year “The Moose Tour RevisitedSki Trip, with the Strange Brew Crew!”
Wow! Which fun event do you plan on going to? I wish I could go on everyone. You have just over 2 weeks to decide. Most of the ski trips are going to be filling up fast.
Until August 23rd at Dubsdread ..
Wishing You Many Happy Dreams of Gently Falling Snowflakes, and Groomed Slopes!
Bob Mackey, President (a/k/a Snow Dog)
