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.

 2022 FAGOWEE FUN IN PHOTOS! 

 2021 FAGOWEE(S) OF THE YEAR & THE UNSUNG HERO

 Fagowee(s) of the Year: Congratulations to John Morrison.  John and his  wife, Marilyn, joined the tribe in 2015 after learning the Fagowees were  cruising the Mediterranean in 2016.  john jumped into the club  immediately and started running activities and offering a helping hand  wherever needed.  John became our Activities Coordinator and Bar of the  Month guru.  Congratulations on your well deserved award!   

 Unsung Hero: Congratulations to Chris Carlson.  This year's recipient is a  long term Fagowee who has contributed much to the club both in front  and behind the scenes.  most of you know Chris "Crash" Carlson as our  fearless leader of Canaan and other trips. But, this is for her contributions  has our long running newsletter editor.  What most don't see is the effort  to wrangle all of the pieces out of the rip leaders, club President and  others every month: and then to put it all together into a polished final  project, in a timely manner. A well deserved award! 

 Hopefully, we can toast these well deserved award winners in person  soon! 

FAGOWEE UPDATES

 Happy May! It's election time again!  

 ELECTIONS: It's that time again.  Our annual   election will be held at the May meeting.  You   will need to attend in person to cast your   ballot for President, Vice President and Board     of Directors.  I encourage everyone to consider   voting for the candidates that you believe are   most capable and likely to provide positive   leadership and creative contributions to the   Club.  We need active participation.  

 We are continuing the process of fleshing out   the Spring and Summer activities schedules   and we have several new offerings.  In May,   sign up for our dinner night at House of   Dynasty in Alexandria on May 14th and the   BOM on May 21st at Mark's Pub in Falls Church
