President's Message  

By: Kathryn Hardage

Greetings Orlando Ski and Travel Club peeps! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having in Central Florida! YES, we love to go play in the snow but how lucky are we to live where the sun shines 99% of the time!

In April OSTC participated with Alfond Inn’s Art Happy Hour Art Tour. It is always thought provoking (and head scratching) to hear the docents analysis of the art…though I don’t always “get it”, it does make me look harder! And it’s always enjoyable socializing with other OSTC persons!

Also in April, OSTC cruised the Winter Park Chain of Lakes at dusk, that was REALLY beautiful, such a great time of day to be out on the water! We even picked up a hitch hiker, a local resident ski clubber who lives on the chain! We had adult beverages and snacks while listening to our guide provide some old Winter Park history (& some really corny jokes), such as pointing out the Historical estates-built many decades ago.

Wednesday, May 9th will be OSTC’s Monthly Social to be held at WP Ale House on the patio. We had another great turn out in April, let’s repeat for May! Food is always provided, bring a friend! Our May meeting will also we our annual Election of Officers, our annual Business Meeting; yet, believe me…it’ll be short & sweet! The Ballot is posted within this newsletter; however, we will also take nominations from the floor night of the event. Should any of you who have not stepped to the plate yet… we NEED NEW blood to help lead us into the future! I keep reminding everyone, our Club is a 100% volunteer operation!

Wednesday, May 19th will be OSTC’s Monthly Funday Humpday Happy Hour Event for 20’s, 30’s & 40-year old’s meeting in the new ACE Café, downtown Orlando. This is for young persons who wish to be social and active, be it skiing/boarding, running or tennis, great way to meet persons of like age and interest! More details at: https://www.meetup.com/skiing-96/events/250025501/

Thursday, May 24th,come join us for a “tasty” evening at The Meatball Stoppe, they are launching their first Food Network Style cooking class.  It’s mostly a cooking demonstration yet with a little hands on, then we dine on the fabulous food prepared by a very vivacious cook that keeps things interesting. You get to eat and drink until your hearts content! More details HERE.

Then for June, we’ll repeat our Monthly Club Social and the Funday Humpday Happy Hour events. Plus, our next “local adventure” will be Sunday, June 10th, on a Historical Guided Walking Tour of Sanford (about 2 miles), hosted by a very knowledgeable insider! We will follow this with Dinner and drinks at The Alley/Fuel BBQ, while being entertained with Sunday evening Blues Jam! More details HERE.

OSTC likes to be active and social…come join in the fun!

Space still available on the Tennessee Rafting Trip & New Zealand Adventure Trips

See everyone next on Wednesday, May 9th at WP Ale House!
