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 2020-21 TRIP SCHEDULE: MARSHA LUTZ VP-TRIPS


Hi there!

Last month I wrote about the 50 or
so SCSC lucky participants that were able to ski in either Jackson Hole or Snowbird. I have one more person to add to the list of skiers. Yours truly. I know there were several others that managed to get to the slopes on their own, but I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to go to Breckenridge for 4 nights over Easter weekend. They still had the 2 household per condo limit so not everyone in our group was able to go, sorry to say. Other than that rule, along with wearing masks while in the lift line and eating outside for our ski day lunches on the mountain (reservations only for in-door tables), the rest was mostly the same as usual. It was so nice to be out on the slopes and we had great spring weather-blue skies, warm temps, no wind, and amazingly good snow. Breck and many resorts have decided to stay open into May so some of you may still find an opportunity to go on a trip.

As far as SCSC trips, the 3rd and remaining trip of 2021 is the Grand Canyon/Zion adventure. Those 30 participants will enjoy the beauty of the American West for 4 days. Currently there is one opening for a male. Just a reminder due to the uncertainties of international travel the Bruges to Amsterdam bike/barge and the Greece trips have been postponed to similar time frames in 2022. The New Zealand trip had to be canceled. Check with the TCs for details whether you are carrying forward your participation or are newly interested now that we have new dates.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT BEVERLY ROBERTS


Hello Friends

Spring is here! To my amazement, just about everything obliterated by the February freeze has re-sprouted. My roses are just going crazy! It makes me happy and hopeful to see regrowth and beautiful blooms. And it also made me really happy to see sooooo many people turn out for the April club meeting. I saw dear friends that I havent seen at all, or only on Zoom, for almost a year. Most people are vaxed upand happy that their antibody superpowers are fully kicked in.

Well, speaking of Zoom, I am pretty Zoomed-outafter the TSC virtual Bidfest sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 9-11. But it was worth it we are excited about the TSC selection of wonderful ski and adventure trips for 2022 and 2023. Check out Marshas article for the particulars. And you already know about the full roster of 2022 trips. Our 2022 trip leaders will soon begin planning and advertising for their trips. Information will be posted to the website as details are nailed down. I am so ready to restart travel, and the first steps are underway!

Im also so ready to enjoy the dinners, activities, and happy hours that Lynn has scheduled. She is busy helping us restart the socializing that we have all missed so much.


This information will also be on the website and will be included in the weekly eblasts. Be sure to check both for all the updates. In the meantime, go out and smell your roses!
