OCSA Newsletter Spring 2022

Message from the OCSA President – Ken Petterson

We are busy at the club planning new projects to make the club safe and ready for your enjoyment.

The repairs to the North Ramp have been completed. A 14’ x 25’ section was removed and replaced with new precast concrete panels. Please make sure you do not power load. It’s very expensive to repair the ramps.

The asphalt was resealed and striped. The club remained open during both projects.

I hope everyone enjoys all that OCSA offers. It’s been a pleasure serving you as President over the last year. Wishing everyone a very safe and fun 2022!

Ken Petterson,
OCSA President

We are busy planning events for 2022!

Annual membership renewals are due by March 31st. You are encouraged to pay your dues upon receipt of your statement. This will avoid any late payments and possible loss of your membership. Payments can be made online at www.ocsaclub.com or mailed to OCSA, PO BOX 690367, Orlando, FL 32869. You can also drop off your payment at the club. Please ensure the office has your current mailing address and email address. Truly, the OCSA is still the Best Value that you will find anywhere!

New member applications will be emailed in mid-April. We have over 1100 people on the wait list and they are eager to join the club. It’s even more important this year to pay your renewal fee on time.

OCSA WEBSITE

All closing times are posted on the website, www.ocsaclub.com. A webcam is on the website and is a great way to view lake conditions prior to coming to the club. On the rare occasion that we are out of gas, you will see an orange cover on the gas terminal which can be seen on the webcam. We also update the water level and post updates during the week on the website.
