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)

Kudos to those brave SCSC members who volunteered or ran in this year's Houston Marathon. Brave because it was COLD! 

 

Volunteer and veteran team lead was Bill Bomberger along with Sharon Simandl and Ross Baker who made sure their portion of the track was safe. 

 

The really brave members were Deb Cini who's run 16 full marathons along with 5 half races. She did a half marathon this Sunday. Her next full marathon will be in San Diego for her birthday. Then there's Sandra Cornelius who's run 11 full Houston marathons with 3 others overall. She's been running since 1994 and met her husband through a running club. Arlen Isham has run 38 Houston marathons with a total of a 102 overall. He's been running for 40 years. He finished this race in 3:29 hours. He oversees the Houston Marathon warehouse. 

 

Awesome job!
