Terry Barton, FSC Delegate, Past President

FSC DelegateIt’s our loyal travelers that have made our club so successful. The people in our club are special and bring an enthusiasm and spirit that gives me pride in saying that I’m a member. We always seem to succeed in the FUN department!! Skiing/Boarding is the passion that brought us all together, but the friendships gained go much further than a week on the mountains. This is what makes our club one of the best in the country.

When I started on the board, my guiding force was to always do what is in the best interest for the club, our travelers, and our club leadership. Eight years later, this guidance hasn’t changed. Let’s keep this club thriving. Bring a friend to one of our social events and hopefully they will like what they see and join you on one of our trips.
