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


Our March 11th 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.

MEMBERSHIP CORNER WITH ANNE THOMAS-VP MEMBERSHIP


Question - How do I update my member profile?

It is EXTREMELY important to keep your member profile accurate and up to date. Your Activity or Trip coordinator on any SCSC event is assuming that the data in your profile is accurate. If you have not input your correct Legal Name, you might not get onto your flight! If you didn't input your frequent flier #, you might not get miles for that flight!

Take a few seconds to make your life easier in the long run.

  1. Log onto the website, and hover over your name in the upper right corner, you will see a link to your Profile.
  2. If you click on Profile and then on the Member Profile page under PERSONAL INFO click on Contact Info to verify all data fields have been updated. NOTE - be sure to click on Save at the bottom of the page!
  3. Next click on Additional Member Data. Completing this page out makes it MUCH easier for a Trip Coordinator to get your vital info. Again be certain to click Save at the bottom of the page.
  4. For more fun, click on Standard Member Directory and upload a glamor shot of yourself so we can recognize you on trips! I did!

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.
  1. Save the name "Brochure" in your contacts (computer, phone, tablet).
  2. In the website field of that contact paste: online.fliphtml5.com/mure/nvxg/#p=1
  3. SAVE your new contact.
  4. 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.
Share the "contact" in a text or email or any other way that your phone shares (check out the options).
