Default 2016/17 Event Schedule

The FMO board of directors is proud to announce the 2016/17 event schedule. This will be the 11th season for FMO. We look forward to seeing you this winter. Thank you to all the board members for all the work done throughout the year.

This season we will once again have two overnight destinations. We will return to the Keys and stay at the Hyatt Faro Blanco in early October. In addition we will have our traditional run to Hyatt Sarasota in April.

While most FMO events are free of charge to paid up club members, we will also continue our tradition of having two designated fund raising events in support of the clubs student scholarship fund. In addition we will have our usual 50/50 draws and clothing sales in support of our designated charity. Last season we had a record number of memberships and we hope that will continue again this season.

Thank you,

Eric Belisle, Bob Barnhart, Hans Haedelt, Bill Lemanske, Meghan Brousseau, Drew Phyfe and Stan Quinn
