President's Message

    Happy Summer to all OSTC Club members! 

    Our June Social held in Downtown Winter Park at Imperial Wine was another β€œRecord Breaker” regarding attendance. I believe we had over 140 people attend our Social event over the 2 hours. I find it so exciting and very rewarding to watch so many of our long-time members hit it off with brand new attendees interested in joining our wonderful travel club. New members (you know who you are πŸ˜Š) that have recently signed up for our upcoming trips were expressing to me their high level of excitement and anticipation, love it!

    Thank you, Cyndy Valence our VP of Trips for all your hard work and the extensive personal hours you’ve donated to our club. I know it took a lot of careful planning and coordination with our vendors, webmaster David Pugh and wonderful volunteer trip leaders to be able to pull off such a successful and timely launch of our upcoming ski trips!  

    We have another amazing adventure trip coming up on the horizon! It will be an exciting trip to Argentina (Patagonia region) along with other friendly Florida Clubs (FSC). We will not be skiing on this trip, instead we will be viewing Giant Glaciers, Penguins, Whales, and a Tango Show in Buenos Aires. Extension options to the Wine region Mendoza and Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazil! Trip will take place the Later of October 2024 during their beautiful Spring. Keep your eyes out a few months from now for that signup announcement as the detailed planning for this trip is still very much in the works.

    Ski Trip signups for our Dec 2023 – March 2024 Ski Season are open now on the club’s website! 2 of our 8 different Ski destinations for next year have already sold out. At the time I am writing this there are plenty of great OSTC snow- filled options available for you to consider. Many of our members sign up for multiple Ski trips traveling between Dec 2023 – March 2024, so if you’re able to, be sure to get yourself signed up on at least one!

    I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July!  

    Steve Clark, OSTC President
