    Far West’s 88th Annual Convention:  MAY 28-31, 2020.  Put those dates on your calendar NOW!   Northwest Ski Club Council is planning a terrific four-day-event for you all next May. The theme is “Rollin’ on the River”, with a Riverboat Gambler idea in mind.  We will have a Mt. Hood Adventure Day on Thursday, as well as the Annual Far West Pub Crawl on Thursday evening. Friday will bring the “Not Your Daddy’s” Golf Tournament on Friday morning at McMennamins, Edgefield.  We are also planning a Wine Tour and a Bike Ride on Friday (no, not together! That would be ‘Not Your Daddy’s Bike Ride’).  Along with our typical Awards Banquet on Saturday evening, we plan to have both musical entertainment, and Casino tables set up for your enjoyment.

    Portland, the “Rose City”, due to its’ many gorgeous rose gardens, is a beautiful place to visit!  You really must plan to come early and stay late.  You’ll not get tired of the many things to do and see in our fabulous city!  We will also be celebrating Far West Ski Association’s 90th Anniversary during this event.  Lots of history, lots of stories, and hopefully a few very “Special” Guests from the Pacific Northwest.  This event will be held at the beautiful Red Lion on the River, Jantzen Beach in Portland, Oregon.  See you all there!
