We are going to have a year full of fun and adventure. In fact it has already began. Last month Steve Clark lead a group of OSC member on a Pre-Holiday trip to ASPEN, Co.

Steve Clark


Aspen - 2016 was a wonderful experience for all who attended –

We attended a concert at the Belly Up Aspen - Legendary “Steve Vai” of the band Whitesnake

We enjoyed Mulled Wine and Spiked Cider around the Firepit

We celebrated Gayle’s Birthday, one for the Aspen memory booksJ

From all accounts it was a great opening trip!


Also, we had our Holiday / Toys-For-Tots Party downtown at Ferg's. Great turn out, especially the Marines!

President's Message

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! Some 38 OSC skiers and boarders started the holiday season off with a long weekend trip to Aspen for both the sport and to enjoy the snow to feel in holiday spirit since sunny Florida has been in the 80’s!

Thank all you OSC members who showed up with gifts in hand for the very worthy Marine’s Toys for Tots drive! I felt so proud of our member’s generosity with the gifts, plus we raised almost $300 in cash for the Marines! We certainly had quite the showing of uniformed Marine’s; I think they enjoyed our party!

And what a PARTEE, it was! We had at least 90 members present for a fabulous evening of fellowship, friendship, lots of door prizes and some fun dancing with a DJ! OSC members know how to party! This was a fun new venue and a very successful event!

Two days later, we had OSC group tickets for a Magic game with another SOLD OUT event! We met for pre-game food & beverage, walked to the game together, gathered at half-time and again post game! Then on Dec 22nd we met for a live jazz concert at Alfond Inn! OSC is a very active club having lots of fun!

Soon our FSC Beaver Creek trip will be departing! Followed in February by Telluride, Sun Valley and Banff. Then in March will be Japan and Big Sky! All trips are SOLD OUT, except a few spaces remaining on Big Sky, contact the Trip Leader now! Also, you may sign up for “wait list” on the other trips, occasionally a cancelation occurs at last minute.
