*****************

 Trips are organized and planned by club volunteers.

 

Volunteers deal with travel agencies, hotels, restaurants, transportation and etc.  They organize the trips, conduct meetings, account for fees, keep records, and make sure everyone has enough information and have fun on the trip!  They're always open to suggestions on new destinations.  Our club has been to many really interesting and fun places.  If the area looks like fun and is affordable, we'll try to plan a trip there.

Thanks goes to our volunteers for all their hard work and the long hours that goes into planning a trip.

     It will be 7 years since our last visit to Radstadt. This trip has been a very eventful packed week spent in 3 very different cities in Austria. Radstadt is a small medieval wall-surrounded village with the distinction of having the most Winter Olympic medalists of any city. As you can surmise from that, there is spectacular nordic and alpine skiing in the area. The local school children are even given off winter school Wednesdays to ski. We will spend 5 nights there, with one full day trip to Salzburg. Salzburg is a middle size city that is most noted as Mozart’s home and the site of the “Sound of Music”. It has castles, music, and the oldest restaurant in Europe. We will spend our last 2 days in Vienna, the majestically rebuilt capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It has everything that you could want in a large European City; music, sightseeing, shopping and fine dining. We presently have 27 travelers signed up.  I may be able to add a few more travelers in the next week or so. This trip is advertised at $1,700; which; includes all transportation, 7 nights in hotels, breakfast for 7 days, dinner for 5 days, a day trip to Salzburg, and 2 skiing day trips. An optional night sledding trip will be scheduled for those still brave enough to travel at great speeds in a night-lighted course.   ~ Fred Adriance
