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)

We also always need Trip and Activity Coordinators. If you might have some interest in running a trip or activity, please let Beverly Roberts (Trips) or Lynn Burch know.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT JAN FERRELL


September—we had a great kick-off meeting at Dave and Buster’s. More than 100 people attended. Some cool (pun intended) door prizes were given away. Lucky winners were Terry Gray with a cute knitted hat. He says it’s for his granddaughter but I think it would look good on him. Pat Salinas and Rene Reed both won ski helmets. Our intrepid Chairman of the Board, Bill Bomberger, won an inflatable pillow, Debbie Moser has new ski goggles and Russel Tuberville walked away with a stainless-steel water bottle.

Thanks to our V.P. Membership, Bruce Lowther, for those super door prizes.

We will be in the same room for the October meeting on October 14th. Socializing at 6:30 with a general business meeting at 7. Sorry folks, no more drink tickets or snacks but we will have our private bar set up. The food there is good so arriving a little early and having dinner might help keep from being “hangry”. One of my new favorite words. Been there and done that and it’s not pretty.

THINK SNOW!


Jan Ferrell 
President
