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)

WEBMASTER OPPORTUNITY!

Do you have a talent for working with websites, then we have a position for you!

The Webmaster uses the Club Express software and SCSC custom templates to maintain and update the SCSC website.  
Here is a idea of what you would be doing:

 

  1. Adding new officers and BOD members to the website and granting the appropriate website permissions needed for their job responsibilities.
  2. Using established formats and templates to build the Trip Events with information provided by the VP & Director of Trips and the Trip Coordinators.
  3. Updating Trip Events as necessary.
  4. Managing cancellations from events using documented process steps. Steps include: canceling the participant from the event, charging their account any appropriate cancellation fee and marking any remaining payments as refunded.
  5. Assisting the VP-Activities in setting up Activity Events.
  6. Updating as necessary the email forwarding function (which matches personal email accounts to club email accounts – ie, Betty.Boop@gmail.com matched to VPSitcom@spacecity.org)
  7. Assisting any other SCSC Officer in extracting information from the website.
  8. Updating as necessary the SCSC website Home page current with information about the club.
Training would be provided by the current Webmaster David Stotz.
Please contact Beverly Roberts or any officer with questions.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT BEVERLY ROBERTS


Hello all from my desk at the dining table. Like everyone, I’ve been socially distanced for what seems like months. I have a comfortable store of TP, paper towels, pounds of beans and pasta. I have my face masks ready for the grocery runs, and my hand washing soap ready for my return. Situation – new normal!!

I have pandemic skills and scars. Skills include lots of new recipes, an elementary but growing understanding of Zoom, and an inventory of YouTube workouts. Scars include my poor foot when I dropped a landscape rock on it.  How about you?  I think it would be fun to share our Covid chaos and conquests.

Hopefully, we will soon be inching toward a less restrictive lifestyle. Lynn has had a remarkable response to the reinstatement of the monthly dinners. We will let everyone know when we have information around resuming monthly meetings, and what those will look like. In the meantime, Lynn and Bil have come up with some fun games and activities for our weekly Zoom happy hours. Please join us – we have had a steady, and growing participation.  Stay safe and look for the blessings. 

Beverly President
