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


March and spring has sprung! That word always looks weird to me. Our February general meeting was at our new location, Warehouse 72 located in the Marq-E complex. The address is 7620 Katy Frwy Suite 305. Look for Dave and Busters and we are right next door. Why did we move? Glad you asked. Dave and Busters decided to want to charge us a lot more than we had budgeted. Their loss.

At any rate, the place is beautiful, the manager more than accommodating, the food very good and the waitstaff friendly. We do get happy hour prices. I hope not too many people went to the old location and were turned away.

Again, their loss. As always, our V.P. Membership, Bruce Lowther had door prizes and quite a few members walked away with goodies. Here are the big winners:


Sandy Fowler                Beanie

Joan Waddill                 Beanie

Stan Kuper                    Insulated cup

Rita Marie Therolf         Boot bag

Frank Yu                      $25 Chuy’s gift card

Terry Gray                    $25 Amazon gift card

Anne Thomas              $25 Amazon gift card

Our next meeting is March 9th and I hope to see you there. Who knows what Bruce might have for door prizes?

There’s snow on “them there hills” and we do have openings on the some of the upcoming trips. Wait lists get cleared often so check them out. If you haven’t registered for the TSC Bid Fest, now is the time to do so. Whatever TSC trips are decided upon, we have the opportunity to chat with other resorts for our club trips. So, come and be a part of the 2021-2022 season of trips.

MEMBER NEWS

We are all living life fully and there’s always something going on with our members. We would like to start this new feature of Members News to recognize and acknowledge the important happenings in the lives of our members. Let us know if there is something we should let everyone know about.

Unfortunately, for those of you not at the meeting or have not heard, we have sad news and we ask for your good wishes and prayers for our friend and member, Debbie Moser. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer a few weeks ago but had to be admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, February 12th. She had minor surgery and is still in a lot of pain. The doctor is putting in a chemo port on Monday, February 17th and will start chemo Tuesday. Debbie will remain in the hospital for several days to see how she reacts to the chemo. Hopefully she will be home by Friday, February 21st. Debbie is still in pain and not up for visitors at this time. She thanks and appreciates everyone’s love, thoughts and prayers. Let’s hold off on the flowers until she gets home. If you want to send a card, mail it to her home and her son can take it to her. You can get her address in the membership directory. I will keep everyone informed as she progresses.
