TSC TRIPS FOR THE 2019-20 & 2020-21 SEASONS
The Texas Ski Council (TSC) has picked its slate of trips for the next two years. The trips are listed below. Your Space City Trips Team will now start the work of selecting other destinations that the members have expressed a desire to visit.
In two weeks Space City needs to tell the TSC how many people that we think we will send on each trip. Please click HERE and take our quick survey to let us know which trips you think you might attend. The survey should take no more than 2 minutes.
Thanks to all the members that attended the Bid Fest. Your input was very valuable.
And please consider becoming a Trip Coordinator for Space City. It can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

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.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT JAN FERRELL
Our May 6th meeting will be back at Dave & Buster's at 6010 Richmond. We will be in a different room for the rest of the year and we will not have our own bartender. The room is to the left as you come up the stairs and towards the back but not as far as the game room. It’s right next to the dining area.
Jan Ferrell President
Tips From The President!
Did you know that as a Space City Ski And Adventure Club member, you get a 10% discount at both Saint Bernard and Sun & Ski Sports? If you’re buying warm clothes for your first ski trip ever, or investing in that new pair of skis you’ve been wanting, that can add up to some real savings! However, the good people at Sun & Ski want to make sure that you are truly a member!
No problem! Make sure that you can log into the Space City website from your mobile device before you go shopping, and while checking out click on “Your Info” at the bottom of the screen. A popup that looks like this will come up.
Just show them this to prove that you are in Space City. And it’s much better if you’ve added your picture to your profile!
And when you get off the slopes, check out the bike shop at Sun & Ski. The 2019 bikes are already available.

GETTING THE WORD OUT ABOUT SCSC! BIL CUSACK VP-MARKETING
Announcing a new SCSC Brochure!
Brochures can be a great way for an interested person to get a quick idea of our 'story' without having to wade through tons of material on the website. However they must be shared to be effective.
I want everyone to have this so the new Space City brochure will be easy and fun to share.
Share the "contact" in a text or email or any other way that your phone shares (check out the options).
- Save the name "Brochure" in your contacts (computer, phone, tablet).
- In the website field of that contact paste: online.fliphtml5.com/mure/nvxg/#p=1
- SAVE your new contact.
- When the subject of the club comes up, simply share your 'contact' with the interested party. They will then have the brochure to look over, and click the link in it to join or learn more.
