Presidential Message  

By: Kathryn Hardage

¿Hola cómo estás hoy? Practicing my Spanish in preparation of Orlando Ski and Travel Club’s upcoming trip to Spain in March!  OSTC’s first ski trip leaves next Thursday to Vail, I’m certainly looking forward to kicking off my holiday season with the festive lights and holiday cheer in Vail.

Next get your glitter attire on for OSTC’s Holiday Party happening on Thursday, December 14th at Ferg’s Depot.  You will want to make sure to be present for our Holiday Party inclusive of a DJ playing great dance tunes, heavy hors d’oeuvres and first wine or beer for Members.  Please let us know you are attending, so we can adequately anticipate our food needs, by registering at OSTC’s Meet Up site. https://www.meetup.com/skiing-96/

As has been OSTC’s tradition for many years now, we will be supporting the US Marine’s “Toys for Tots” collection drive!  For entry, please bring an unwrapped toy or make a $10 donation for the Marine’s.  Last year was a FABULOUS party while also being a hugely successful toy drive, let’s repeat again this year!

One of my goals as President has been to INCREASE benefits for Club Members.  The Board has worked to make this possible by offering this fun-filled Holiday Party and enhanced food offerings at Monthly Socials.  Also, in addition to our awesome Ski/Snow Board trips, we are offering exciting Adventure travel and numerous Local Events for OSTC members participation.  All while keeping Trip pricing trimmed as low as possible!

To continue offering these trips and local activities we need LEADERS!!!  Once again, I make the plea, the club is ALL volunteer operated, we need more volunteers! It’s personally fun and rewarding to put together an event/trip which brings so much pleasure to participants!  Plus, the club DOES offer trip benefits for your Leadership! Please contact me (hardage.kathryn@gmail.com) or VP of Trips, Steve Clark (SClark2575@cfl.rr.com) with your interest in Trip Leadership.  Or, Debbie Ashworth (injezz@yahoo.com) with your ideas and interest in coordinating a gathering for a local event.

Speaking of ADVENTURE travel, Orlando Ski and Travel Club is going to New Zealand in November 2018!  This will be a trip of a lifetime, jammed packed with activities.  Trip includes first night in Hollywood, Ca; then Auckland, NZ 2 – nights, Queenstown, NZ – 5 nights and Sydney, Austraila 3 nights.  Don’t miss this Adventure opportunity!  Sign up now at https://orlandoskiclub.com/event-2561288 .

And, for a local event, OSTC will participating with “Get Your Jazz On Holiday Concert” to be held at Alfond Inn, Monday, Dec 22nd.  Register to attend at https://www.meetup.com/skiing-96/events/245427671/ 

See you at the Holiday Party, Thursday, December 14th!  Think snow!



Snow Report!!

Las Vegas - Adventrure Trip

On October 25th a small group of Orlando Ski and Travel Club members met up poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.  We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon getting acquainted with each other, drinks in hand, under the Vegas Blue Bird Sky.  The laughter and good times were then on for five days straight.  Non-stop action starting with hiking the Valley of Fire (old Western Movie Set in the Desert), Carrot Top Comedy Show, Bellagio Buffet, a little gambling, a tour of the Hoover Dam, hiking Mt Charleston in an avalanched riverbed to a waterfall at 8,800 feet in the crisp refreshing air of 50-60 degrees, Fremont Street, Cirque du Soleil Show, and Red Rock Canyon.  Weather was superb and everyone on the adventure trip is already calling for another Las Vegas Hiking/Party Trip next year!  Keep your eyes out for the possible launch, and if it is offered by the club be sure to sign up immediately as spaces will be limited to a total of 12. 
Viva Las Vegas!

Cooking Class Demonstration

The November 16th Cooking Demonstration Class was a fantastic!  OSTC member Paul Kurrash summed up the evening perfectly:

"I really enjoyed the culinary demonstration put on by Publix/Winter Park Village.  Portions of food & beer were ample. Publix provided a 20% discount on any kitchen accessory used in the demonstration. Quite educational--I learned some valuable information that I can put to use in the kitchen. Enjoyable attendees to be around, and I was quite impressed by the culinary staff. First rate presentations & they were quite willing to answer various questions."

Orlando Magic Game

On Saturday, November 18th a group of 30 members between the Orlando Ski & Travel Club and our sister club the Orlando Runners Club attended a Magic Game!  It was a wonderful social event for our members as well as new people interested in joining our club.  This was the second annual Club Magic Game, be on the lookout for 2019!
