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)

THE SCSC 2019-20 TRIP SCHEDULE: BEVERLY ROBERTS VP-TRIPS


Here is our schedule of trips for the 2019-20 season. As mentioned previously, this year we are opening the trips for signup on a staggered basis. The opening dates for each trip are listed. Each is on a Monday, and will be at 7:00 PM.

These trips can sell out pretty quick, so if you see one that you really want to go on, you should be on the website ready to sign up at the proper time. Our December Vail trip sold out in less than 24 hours!

The Trip Coordinators (TCs) are furiously writing up the descriptions for each of these trips now. We will make an announcement when they are posted.

Space City has decided to not run trips with the Texas Ski Council (TSC) to either Keystone or Sun Valley. SCSC ran a trip to Keystone last year, and our survey revealed very low interest in returning. We had very high interest in the Sun Valley trip, but we were assigned bedding that was below the standards of SCSC. If any member wants to go on either of these trips, we suggest you consider going with the Clear Lake Area Ski Club (CLASC) under the TSC reciprocity clause. We have included links to the Clear Lake website.

The prices for the non-ski trips are still being calculated.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT JAN FERRELL


President’s Message

We had a lovely spring and June hasn’t been that bad, either. Well, at least as compared to what we can expect in July and the dreaded August. Please stay in touch via our happy hours, events and club dinners.

We would love to have a slide show at the September meeting on the 9th.  You can contact our Webmaster, Dave Stotz, at webmaster@spacecity.org to put them on the website and our VP Marketing at marketing@spacecity.org for the slide show.

Stay cool and have a wonderful summer!


Jan Ferrell 
President

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).
