President's Message

Dear Orlando Ski and Adventure Travel Club members and potential new members!

The upcoming Membership Drive Picnic is so important to all of us and the future of our wonderful club. It takes all of us to invite our friends, coworkers, and neighbors to help continue to build this club with fun people and reach our best potential.

We’re all excited to speak with you in person at Wekiva Island in Longwood on Sunday June 9th regarding our upcoming trips that we will be launching for sign-ups later this month! CLICK HERE TO RSVP

This June 9th event will take the place of our normal June Monthly social.

Our 2025 Ski Trips will be first previewed at the Wekiva event on June 9th and this day is also your first opportunity to sign up for the Lake Louisa Cabin Party Weekend IV in Clermont, FL, taking place Sept 13-15th, 2024! This event is expected to sell out quickly as a limited number of spaces will be released on June 9th. An event waiting list will be created behind those limited signups. The themed parties and costumes were spectacular last October so don’t miss out! 

Official Ski Trip signups will take place online on our club website starting June 14th. Keep an eye out for an official email notification regarding that launch.
