Monica Seal New FWSF President

In September the current FWSF president Gordon West resigned, leaving me, Monica seal Vice President as the new president!

I have several goals for this year including making some updates to some of our policies for sanctioning tournaments and collecting FWSF memberships. I would also like to continue to grow our junior development program and hopefully get more clinics in the next year. If anyone is interested in heading up junior development for north or south Florida please reach out!

Our annual December meeting will be held December 7th.  The general membership meeting starts at 11am at the Lake Myrtle complex in Auburndale.

If anyone has questions or comments or just wants to say hi, please email me at mmseal01@hotmail.com.

Looking forward to ski year 2020!
