Hot digity damn....OSC really
hit the jackpot with snow conditions this season! We have four trips
completed, Banff is currently underway (freezing), Japan starts in a
few days & Big Sky wraps up the season mid-March. Some of us have
been home only long enough to wash our ski clothes & repack!
Can you believe planning has
already begun for 2017-18 ski/board season??? The confirmed
destinations at this time are early December long weekend trip to kick
off the holiday spirit at Vail, followed by FSC January trip to
Steamboat Springs and FSC International trip to Spain in early March.
Another BIG trip to watch for
is in October or November 2018, FSC will be going to New Zealand for an
Adventure (non-ski) trip!
Additional trip announcements,
dates & pricing details will be coming in May.
Not to worry....OSC doesn't
take time off, we have FOUR adventure travel trips planned for summer
& fall! Trips are selling fast, go to OSC website to sign up NOW!
Also watch OSC website &
Meet-up for local activities announcements. OSC had a private box at
Amway for Solar Bears game & in April we're going to an Orlando
City Soccer game. Also for something really unique, we having an
upcoming Paint with Wine night! And, yoga & monthly pickle

OSC Trip to Telluride
by Dale Ulmer, Trip Leader & Rhonda Ulmer, Co-Trip
went back to Telluride and Mountain Lodge Feb. 4-11th--and it was a big
enthusiastic group of skiers! Aloha, we even had 61 participants
coming in from Alaska to Hawaii to join us! In summary there was great
skiing, the historic town of Telluride, the new Mountain Village, the
plane turnaround for one group, welcome party, 3 apres-ski
parties with food and prizes, a super Super Bowl party, a Good/Bad/Ugly
Ski Outfit Contest, hot tub time machine parties, shopping galore, the
Amazing Ski Race, and (whew!) the winners and trophies presentation at
the Friday evening Apres-Ski event!!!
had too much beer or drinks from Rhonda to remember all of the Award
winners, but I do recall a few which I will honorably mention:
"Good" Ski Outfit--Jeannie Meyers, "Bad" Ski
Outfit--Charlie's Devils, "Ugly" Ski Outfit--Dave Pels, 3rd
Place Amazing Race--Linda Johnson, Miss Congeniality--Charlie Landers,
Best Use of Hot Tub Award--Dennis Davis, Best Snowmobiler Award--Kara
Weese, Best Skier Award--Cyndy Valence, 2nd place Amazing Ski
Race--Relay for Life, and 1st place (drum roll...) the Mad Ski
Dogs. The Ski Dogs weren't perfect but still won, 24-23.
Relay for Life even had the tiebreaker...so very close and the fastest
team again has never won in the history of this race! I guess
it's better the be a turtle than the hare!!! Bottom line, all had
a great time--I remembered that much.
