Welcome to the 

Washington, D.C.
Fagowees

Ski, Snowboard and Social Club

 The Washington, DC Fagowees are Dedicated to Having Fun! 

 The Fagowees offer trips and events year around for skiers and non-skiers   who want to make new friends and enjoy the advantages and   championship of group travel. While our members enjoy skiing, we really     enjoy traveling with like minded folks who just want to have a good time   while exploring new places and adventures.

 Why the Name Fagowees?

 Dutch Mueller, our founder, started the ball rolling in 1966.  He was in the   business of selling F-U-N at the Hecht Company Ski Shop. He had the   opportunity to start his own ski club for "publicity" reasons and after   several meetings in local pubs with like minded individuals a ski club   was born.  In order to standout in the sea of 106 local ski clubs, an unique   name had to be found.  Dutch had used the Fagowee name back in   California for a defunct social club and some suggested the Fagowees   return.  So Fun And Games OWeekends Especially Skiingwas born. 

 Join Us!

  The club is open to the general public.  Anyone 21 years of age and older    can join the club.  

  Monthly Meetings

  The club holds monthly meetings, the first Tuesday of every month at   local watering hole.  You do not have to be a member to attend the   meetings. Upcoming meetings are listed on the meetings page.

 Membership Has Benefits

 Club members also enjoy the benefits of membership in the Blue Ridge   Ski Council and the National Ski Council Federation.  Our members can   participate on ski and other trips "sanctioned" by other BRSC member   clubs without having to join other clubs.  this gives our members access to  a wide range of trips to choose from.

FAGOWEE UPDATES

 ATTENTION FAGOWEES: A Message from   President John McIntire!

 Current Activities:  Hope everyone is enjoying   the Summer heat.  Several of us kicked off the   season with a great kayak adventure on the   Occuquan led by john Morrison. Weather was   great, everyone returned safely and no water   rescues required!  Topped of the morning with   a brunch at Madigan's. 

  Then, the following week, we gathered to   invade the Fair Winds Brewery under the   leadership of john Morrison.  Sandy made sure,   we were slowly able to take over real estate   until we were the last patrons standing   er...sitting while playing a game of "That's   What She Said".  Fagowees know a bit about   closing up a bar.  The Fagowees made our   presence know at the dive bar, Alley Cat.  We   had a great crowd, who enjoyed good food &   beverages. Check out the Events tabs for   upcoming Bars of the Month.

 Coming up, we have Horseback Riding, a   theater night and the Fagowee 55th   Anniversary picnic at Fort Hunt Park. We will   have catered food, beverages and games for   young & old.  It's not to early to secure your   room for Ocean City in October!  Join us for a     relaxing week, long weekend or Weekend at   the Castle in the Sand. A one night deposit   secures your room.       

 Some events have limited availability, so if you   can't make it, please make sure you   cancel   your registration, so another can take   your     place.  RSVPing via Meetup & Facebook   does   not ensure, you a spot.  Click over to the   events tab to see the latest upcoming events.
