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


It’s beginning to look like Christmas—in that it is not 80 degrees outside. You know it’s cold when we have to wear sweaters with our shorts. We had a great turnout for our December meeting at Sun and Ski! They’ve hosted us for several years and provided some terrific door prizes.

Here are our big winners--

Debbie Moser               Winter Scarf by Mitchies

Beverly Roberts            Smith Helmet

Gary Haley                   Gloves

Dale Allbritton               Helmet Speaker

Sandy Upchurch           Smith Goggles

Jim Matujec                  Beanie

We’ll be back at Dave and Busters on January 13th . Let’s get together starting at 6:30 PM with our business meeting at 7 PM. We’ll have our own bar, bartender and servers to take your orders from their terrific bar food menu.

Our trips are moving right along with Vail completed in December and Banff is in progress. If you are still interested any of our trips, please go on their wait list. It won’t cost you a dime. I’ve run a lot of trips that had wait lists and usually cleared them.

Have you ever received a “Save the Date” request? Well, here is the “Save the Date” for the Texas Ski Council Bid Meeting in Austin and it is April 17-19, 2020. You will have input as to the trips SCSC plan for 2021. You will first on the block to know the selections and then “Save the Dates” for the trips.

I wish you the best and happiest 2020 New Year!

See you soon,


Happy Holidays, ya’ll.

Jan President
