FWSA Annual Convention June 2017, BOISE IDAHO!
The 2017 convention will be held in Boise thanks to the hard work of past President, Michael Bouton and many others who proposed the idea and have done the leg work to initiate the planning needed for this huge event.  The last FWSA Convention our council hosted was held in 2012, in Ogden, Utah.  This is a huge undertaking, and the council sincerely hopes we will have as much enthusiasm for the Boise convention as was demonstrated in Ogden.  Discussions are underway to choose a logo and motto for the Boise convention, submit suggestions directly to Michael.   

Member Clubs, it is time to submit plans for summer social events and trips
We'd love to post the invitations to your events which are open to the council member clubs. The Calendar is empty at this time, but we know you will be busy as always with the picnics and parties... so, SEND 'EM IN!  Please include date, location, cost, and organizer contact for questions and details.  

Club Reps - Action Item!
Your club trip schedules for the 2015-2016 winter are being formed, and we would like to be kept informed.  If you all would be so kind to report your known trips, we could then carefully plan our winter trip around your trips, and hopefully not overlap.  Also, please consider opening your trips to other member clubs and hopefully get a little help in filling the seats!  Even though our council territory is vast, by listing trips on our trip page, others can join you.  

Next Monthly Meeting - 3rd Tuesday of each month, at 7:00 pm  - You are invited! Our council meets via phone conference on the first Thursday of every month at 7 pm, MST. If you would like an invitation, contact us, we'd love to have you join us. (Note that the conference call is not an 800 number and long distance charges will apply to your line.) Contact: Lennia for an invitation.

We need volunteers who would like to participate in the operations of our council. Many openings exist and they are reasonably easy tasks. If you have a few minutes each month to help us out, you could hold a seat on the board or help on a committee to make sure the council continues to "join clubs together to make skiing fun!"  Won't you please join us? No previous experience necessary!... we will teach you. If you are interested, please contact Paul.
