Was ist ISFR?

ISFR – International Skiing Fellowship of Rotarians wurde im Jahre 1974 in den Vereinigten Staaten gegründet und besteht aus zwei unabhängigen Organisationen: Nord Amerika und Europa.

Schifahren wird weltweit von Tausenden von Rotariern und ihren Familien, unabhängig vom Alter und der Herkunft genossen. Was gibt es daher Besseres, als weltweite Kontakte und neue Freundschaften mit Rotariern im Rahmen einer gemeinsamen Schiwoche zu schließen?

Durch Teilnahme an einer Schiwoche des ISFR werden Sie Mitglied in einem weltweiten Netzwerk von schibegeisterten Rotariern. Jedes Jahr findet eine solche Schiwoche in verschiedenen Destinationen in Nord-Amerika und Europa statt. Im geselligen Beisammensein von Rotariern aus verschiedensten Ländern und Kontinenten haben sich zwischenzeitlich langjährige Freundschaften entwickelt. Wer einmal dabei war, kommt immer wieder.

Diese Website soll bestehenden und neuen Mitgliedern von ISFR helfen, sich über die neuesten Aktivitäten zu informieren, sich bei den jährlichen Schimeetings anzumelden, den Kontakt mit den Organisatoren zu finden und auch spezielle Wünsche äußern zu können.

Um an der nächsten europäischen Schiwoche teilnehmen zu können, benutzen Sie bitte den Button „Next events“ und Sie erhalten alle erforderlichen Informationen. Wir freuen uns, Dich, lieber rotarischer Freund, auf den Pisten Europas zu treffen und gemeinsam schöne Schitage zu verbringen!
