Space City Ski and Adventure Club  

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


Happy Halloween!

Our October meeting was a success with some wonderful door prizes. Cindy Acquard and Thuy Rocque both won $50 gift certificates from Patagonia Grill. The restaurant hosted a dinner for us and the food was great! The owner is a club member. Rita Cardenas snagged a helmet, Frank Yu and Kay McKeough walked away with gloves and Roger Holzman got a travel package filled with all kinds of goodies. Check out the photos of our meeting HERE.

We’ll be in the small room over by the dining area in November. December is our annual meeting at Sun and Ski on Westheimer. January through May will find us back at Dave and Buster’s in the small room.

We’ll be on the Vail slopes Dec. 7 with 6 more awesome trips following close after that. Get on a wait list!

Please send our VP Marketing, Bil Cusack, your photos so we can have a slide show at the meetings. Send them to pianozizuz@gmail.com. We want to see your victories and your agonies of defeat. Hopefully, someone remembers that phrase.

THINK SNOW!


Jan Ferrell 
President
