Space City Ski and Adventure Club  

THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR NEW WEBSITE
MEMBERS, REMEMBER TO LOGIN !!!


We are a non-profit, member run, Sports and Adventure Club operating in Houston, Texas for 50+ years.  We offer 8 - 12 winter and summer trips per year, all over the world.

Our social, sports, cultural, and charitable events fill the calendar year-round. From September to May we have fun monthly general meetings normally held the 2nd Monday of the month.  Happy Hours are the 4th Thursday of each month, year-round.

Popular local Houston Area activities this year were monthly dance lessons, monthly dinner gatherings, theater outings, and winery/brewery tours.  Activities are run by volunteers, if there is something you are interested in doing, make a suggestion and we will consider offering it.

Initial trip sales generally start in August and sell briskly, so act quickly to avoid landing on a wait-list.  Trip participation requires membership but it is only $40 for an Individual for an entire season.  Have a look around and we hope you decide to Join Us.  If you need some more time to decide, Click "Add Me to your Mailing List" (Top Left Corner)

THE SCSC 2020-21 TRIP SCHEDULE: MARSHA LUTZ VP-TRIPS


Hello fellow travelers

I hope you have been making plans for your 2022 travel. We have a fabulous slate of trips. The domestic ski trips are basically full and the International ski and adventure trips are getting full. As my broken record keeps saying - don't hesitate to get on a wait list. Sometimes another room may become available and always some people have to cancel. That is just life when you sign up for something 5 -12 months out. Email the TCs if you need more information.
 
Come to the general meetings at Warehouse 72 to meetup with your travel buddies and make plans for a fun vacation.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT BEVERLY ROBERTS


Hello Friends

According to the calendar, summer is winding down, but someone forgot to tell the thermometer.  Surviving the Houston heat and mosquitos requires turbo AC, ice cold beverages and jungle strength bug spray!  But there is one unmistakable indication that we’re moving towards fall – trip signup for 2022 travel is underway!  I was thinking about cool weather and cool trips as I completed my ski trip registrations on August 9.  Same for many of you - response was tremendous.  And don’t forget the adventure trips!  Check Marsha’s trip info below for details.

Mark your calendars for September 13 at 6:30pm for the first general meeting after the summer hiatus.  We will be going back to Warehouse 72, with its great food, room accommodations and easy parking.  Come talk to the trip TCs, hear about the plans for fall activities, and catch up with your friends after the long hot summer. 

See you soon!  Stay cool!


Beverly President

MEMBER NEWS


Ron Hayes
1943-2021

Ron was born in Tampa Bay, Florida on April 28, 1943.  He passed away in Houston, Texas on Saturday, December 4, 2021.  Graduated Pasadena High School, Pasadena, Texas.  Graduated University of Houston and South Texas College of Law.  Practiced law in Houston and contiguous areas for many years.  He really enjoyed the practice of law and probably would still be practicing law if old age and dementia hadn’t stopped him.  He volunteered in many capacities with different law committees.  He loved working in the yard.  But his other love was taking photos.  He could always been seen with a camera in his hands.  He volunteered to be Space City Ski Club’s unofficial photographer when he became a member of the club.  He would take the photos and Judy (his side kick) would pass them out to individuals– sometimes to the chagrin of the person involved.  I’m sure that wherever he is now he is taking someone’s photo.

For any of you that has had a friend or relative that is living with dementia, God bless you.  It’s a horrible disease.  Ron was diagnosed with memory loss some 20 years ago after he had a slight stroke.  He managed to hide this for a while, but it eventually manifested itself about 10 years ago.  He was homebound most of that time but was finally totally bedridden for the last 2 ½ – 3 years ago.  Take the time to tell your friends and family that you love them every day.

Ron was survived by his brother, Wayne Hayes, his son, and his significant other, Judy Schiro, SCSC member.  Ron will be cremated and his ashes sent to his brother in Ohio.
