President's Message:


OSC has a change of venue for the May 10th Social.  We’ll meet at Winter Club Ski, this month ONLY. There will be a cash bar and light snacks. Social will include a brief business meeting. (The acoustics are better at WSC.)

Your Board of Directors is proposing a club name change. To give a more comprehensive picture of what the club is offering, we’re suggesting renaming ourselves the Orlando Ski and Travel Club.

It is YOUR club! Please be here for this important discussion. We’ll formally propose the name change, then open the floor for discussion, and then vote. IF the proposal is approved, we’ll then vote to revise our By-Laws to comply w/ name change. You can see the proposed By-Law revisions at osc_by-laws_proposed changes for 2017_05-10.draft.4.23.17.pdf. This will be followed by the annual Election of Officers, you can view ballot in this newsletter.  

Now to the fun part! Our summer is starting off with lots of events.

This past Saturday OSC Snow Chaser team participated in a fund-raising walk for the kennel at Harbor House, a shelter for abused women and children. Statistics show 48% of abuse victims choose to stay with their abuser to protect their pet. This kennel allows them to leave the abusive situation, bringing their two- and four-legged kids along. You may still donate at

For May, we start Sat 6th with a “Bike 5 Cities” ride from Mead Gardens. The ride starts at 8 a.m. It’s FREE! See details at: . The following Sat 13th is “Tree Trek Adventure” in Kissimmee, an agility local adventure. Sign up at Gotta stay FIT for skiing!

For more adventure, join OSC rafting trip in July to Chattanooga & the Ocoee River. It was a HOOT last summer, sure to be great fun this year too! Sign up here:  

The June Maine Schooner trip and August Blue Ridge Mountain trip are sold out.

Space is still available on the two ADVENTURE trips, Chattanooga and late October Las Vegas Party/Hiking Trip! Deadline for signing up approaching soon! Don’t miss this opportunity!

At the OSC May 10th Social/Election Meeting the Board of Directors will be proposing to the General Membership a club name change under which the Orlando Ski Club, Inc. will operate.
