President's Message

 Holy hot tamale! I can’t wait for the upcoming OSTC’s Ocoee & Blue Ridge rafting trips, plus, our Maine sailing adventure to cool off. OSTC has lots to offer!

 Notice the new letter “T” in our club acronym? It’s official. Membership at the May General Membership Meeting voted unanimously in favor of the new name “Orlando Ski and Travel Club!” And the new slate of officers (listed below) were installed.

  I will be your President for another year. Thank you for your vote of confidence. Please write me ( with your suggestions, ideas and input for upcoming year.

 Thanks to the Board of Directors for their service during the 2016-17 year and to our Ski Trip  Leaders for the last ski season. It was a good one!

 Thanks to those who answered my call for volunteers. We’ve had a good turnout to plan & lead local events and to serve as Assistant Trip Leaders or Financial Assistants.

 Now we need a volunteer with IT experience to assist with OSTC website (there may be some trip discount associated with this position). Please contact me directly if you can help.

 Between bicycle adventuring thru 5 cities, pushing our limits with Tree Trekking and challenging each other with Pickleball…. OSTC keeps us FIT year-round! Wrap that up with a delightful evening of jazz in the VIP area at Alfond Inn, it’s great to be a member of OSTC!

 As we endure the heat of summer, divert your thoughts to cooler months of skiing! Our annual Trip Kick Off Event will be Sunday, July 30th from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Dubsdread.  You’ll find the Trip Summary at It’s time to register for your trip(s) of choice on-line. It’s an exciting lineup, sign up quick!

W e’re honored to be presenting donations of $1,500 each to the St Augustine School for Deaf & Blind and the Veterans Adaptive Sports Program. OSTC has helped support these two worthy organizations for many years. A few dollars of each of your trip payments go toward this annual donation.

 The Florida Ski Council also donates, as do other Florida clubs. It helps these organizations sponsor ski trips for their vision- and hearing-impaired students, and for disabled veterans. You know how good it feels when we see these special needs programs on the mountain. And YOU are part of making them possible!

                                    See you at Ale House Weds, June 14th!

Kathryn Hardage

OSC President
