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)

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT LYNN BURCH


Greetings SCSC’ers!


I want to thank everyone who came to the September Meeting, we had 60 members and guests.  There were a number of members who did not come due to them leaving in a few days for the SCSC Greece trip and not wanting to take a chance of testing positive on their Covid test. 

We had a number of new members and guests coming to see what our club is all about.  Thank everyone for talking to them and making them feel comfortable. 

This meeting had about the number of people I feel like we will usually have and the service was good.  Last month when we had a little over 100 attending and Post Oak Grill was a little overwhelmed.


Rita gave a rundown on the status of our upcoming trips where most are now full or almost full.  If you are wanting to go on a trip, please sign up now or get on the wait list.  We really have a great time on our club trips regardless whether it is a ski or nonski trip.  It is so much more fun to travel with a group of friends to different destinations.  We would still like to add more trips that are non-ski trips but we need trip leaders to run them.  If you have an idea for a trip and would like to run it, please let Beverly know.  There are a lot of members who want to travel but we have to have someone to run the trip, it can be a long week-end or a week.


Bil has activities such as Happy Hours, parties and other activities planned, watch the website and eblast to let you know what is coming up next.  There are dinners planned monthly thru October.  There will not be a dinner in November since the date we have is 2 days after Thanksgiving and that doesn’t work.  There is not one in December because of the Gala and the Holidays.


Please participate in the activities and trips.  These volunteers spend a lot of their time trying to provide the members with lots of fun things to do.

As you have heard the officers say many times we need Volunteers to help with activities and trips.

Without Volunteers this club could no longer exist.

I am always available for anyone to call, text or email me about any new ideas they may have about running this club.


Lynn Burch
President
