President's Message

Hello Orlando Ski and Adventure Travel Club members! We have much good news to report this month.  

The new Orlando Ski & Travel Club T-Shirts have arrived!

These beautiful shirts are available now for you to pick up at our upcoming Social Events for a $10 Club donation. You can get your T-Shirt at the Club’s Monthly Social (rotating locations) which is scheduled on the 2nd Wednesday of each month or on Thirsty Thursday. Go to our Meetup Page to see which Thursday is scheduled each month as it may change. If you are signed up for the Lake Louisa Cabin Weekend, the T-Shirt is included (no donation necessary) and you can pick it up early. Let’s get these shirts on and wear them when you are out and about Orlando to spread some “Club Cheer”!

Our Membership Drive is experiencing continued success as we’ve gained more than 52 new club memberships since we last skied together a few months ago. 

The September 10-12th Lake Louisa Cabin Event is SOLD OUT for the cabins we have reserved. But if you or your friends have an RV or Tent, I encourage you to contact the Lake Louisa (Clermont, Florida) State Park and Reserve an RV or Tent space so that you can participate in our planned Friday Night Potluck, Saturday Social around the fire pits and Saturday/Sunday planned group hikes, bike rides, and kayaking across the lake. There is no additional expense to participate in all these planned club activities.  

Even if you aren’t able to cabin, RV or tent, you are welcome to come out and hang with fellow club members for the day as I expect there will be more than 70 of us there for the weekend. You can bring your own bicycles (both road or mountain bike) or kayaks or you can rent them at the park by reserving rentals on This Website.

Our 2021-2022 trip signups have been flying out the door faster than ever due to everyone’s pent up demand for travel. If you have not already signed up for next year’s trips, go to our website now before all spaces are reserved. Early bird discounts of $100 are still being offered for signing up with deposit/payment received by July 15th!
