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 JAN FERRELL




Tis the weeks before Thanksgiving and all through the grocery stores are people ordering turkeys and grabbing bags of dressing. Yes, I agree that Pepperidge Farms has the best dressing. That is unless you are a fan of cornbread dressing. I had never encountered cornbread dressing until moving to Houston 50 years ago. It’s an acquired taste. Well, enough about me—let’s talk about YOU!


Our November general meeting at Dave and Buster’s had over 50 determined members that braved really ugly weather to show up. Here are the big door prize winners:

Janet McKenzie            T-shirt

Rick Livi                        Battery charger

David Gresko                Money pouch/belt

Rowena Roche             Backpack

Pete Mathieu                 Flight socks

George Sargent            Beanie – grey hat

Ken Reding                   Luggage tag

Pam Smith                    $25 Amazon Gift Card

We’ll be at Sun and Ski, 6100 Westheimer, for our December meeting on 12/9.  We’ve done this for several years and they are always excited to see us. Think Christmas presents for yourself and others

Happy Thanksgiving,


Jan Ferrell President
