About Us

FAGOWEES stands for Fun and Games on Week Ends Especially Skiing, and is pronounced Fuh-Gow-eez. We’re a 21 and over club that does a lot!

We organize events and trips throughout the year. If you’re a competitive skier or boarder of any skill level, we participate in the Cleveland Metro Ski Council (CMSC). This is an organization that provides an organized racing schedule where we compete against several other Cleveland Ski Clubs over the course of the winter skiing season. The races are held at several resorts in Ohio and New York.

We need racers! If you’ve ever raced NASTAR, give us a try. You’ll be part of team as well as competing for yourself.

If recreational skiing is more your speed, all FaGowees members are welcome at all events, racing or not. We even go out west at least once a season! Even people who don’t like the cold find the FaGowees a great club. We have social events of many kinds all year long. From winery trips and tailgate parties to boating and camping, you’ll find things you love to do with a great bunch of people! We meet twice a month just south of Cleveland in Parma, from I-480 (State Rd exit south) or from I-77 (Pleasant Valley Rd exit west).

We meet at the VFW Post 1974, 4305 Woodrow Ave, Parma (between State Rd & W 54th), 44134

Give us a call for more information at: 530-FAG-OWEE (324-6933).


We meet the first and third Tuesday of every month from October through May. Just the third Tuesday of the month from June through September. In the summer months we also have an informal gathering “meeting” on the first Tuesday of the month at a local watering hole. Check the Happening for details.

Meeting begins at 8pm (doors open at 7pm) and are $6 for members and $8 for non-members. There’s a raffle and trip information. Drinks and Snacks too!

On a sadder note, we’ve lost a Fagowee, Susan Stewart passed away.  She was a past president of ours & CMSC, plus so many other offices, she was a skier.
A memorial will be held for her October 26th at 1:30 PM, the Near West Theatre, 6702 Detroit Ave., Cleveland.

Greeting you at the door November 5th:

Don Stricker                                                                                                                                                                              John Giba
