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!

Well I have gotten off to a crazy start as President!  

At the June meeting Warehouse 72 informed me that the way we were meeting was not working for them.  They are set up for people to come in, sit down, order, eat, and get their check without moving.  Our mingling around talking with friends and not sitting down so they could find us to give us our food and check was not how they do business. 

I have spent the last two weeks looking for a new place for us to have the monthly meetings and believe me, it is not easy to find.  Finally, the Post Oak Grill in the Galleria area agreed to let us use the whole bar area (where we have had the last two Gala’s) for our meetings but we had to go back to Monday night because they are closed on Sunday. 
 
This gives us the opportunity to now have an August meeting so we can have the TC’s set up tables and give the members information about their trip before the August sign ups. This also gives us plenty of space to visit with our friends but also have food and drinks in a very nice place. 

They are going to have an abbreviated menu for a lesser price for us to choose from but you can also order off their regular menu.  Please be sure and order food and drinks so we make our minimums.  I want them to let us stay for a couple of years so we don’t have to go looking for another new home.

We had a great Volunteer Party June 4 at Gary Haley’s house with plenty of BBQ prepared by Bruce Lowther and Robert Clemmons and lots of other food.  I really want to thank Gary for allowing us to use his beautiful home and hanger.  It was lots of fun to see his restored old car and the airplane he built himself.  You don’t get to see either one of those things very often.

Beverly and I have heard from different members about wouldn’t it be fun to have a trip to a certain place.  We would love to have more trips but it takes someone to run that trip.  If you are interested in running a trip to a certain location whether it be a long week end or a week, please contact Beverly and let’s see if we can make it happen.

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
