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 2019-20 TRIP SCHEDULE: BEVERLY ROBERTS VP-TRIPS


Here is our schedule of trips for the 2019-20 season. As mentioned previously, this year we are opening the trips for signup on a staggered basis. The opening dates for each trip are listed. Each is on a Monday, and will be at 7:00 PM.

These trips can sell out pretty quick, so if you see one that you really want to go on, you should be on the website ready to sign up at the proper time. Our December Vail trip sold out in less than 24 hours!

The Trip Coordinators (TCs) are furiously writing up the descriptions for each of these trips now. If you see an active link on the trip names in the table below, that trip description is complete and ready for viewing!

Space City has decided to not run trips with the Texas Ski Council (TSC) to either Keystone or Sun Valley. SCSC ran a trip to Keystone last year, and our survey revealed very low interest in returning. We had very high interest in the Sun Valley trip, but we were assigned bedding that was below the standards of SCSC. If any member wants to go on either of these trips, we suggest you consider going with the Clear Lake Area Ski Club (CLASC) under the TSC reciprocity clause. We have included links to the Clear Lake website.

The prices for the non-ski trips are still being calculated.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT JAN FERRELL


What a year! Our 2018-2019 season was exceptional with many great trips and activities. From volunteering at the Marathon, the Sand Castle Competition, bingo and board games, it was a very good year.


Drag your ski gear out and see if everything fits. Scary thought but necessary. Come on, you know you want new boots.  It’s snowing somewhere. Actually, it’s snowing in Gulmang, North India. That resort is a must for everyone’s bucket list.

Be sure and check our website for current information regarding trips and activities. Especially take note as to when you can sign up for trips. You’ll find that information in the SCSC 2019-2020 Trip Schedule of the website.  Just look for Beverly’s picture.

Looking forward to seeing you again!


Jan Ferrell 
President
