Welcome to the SCWDC Social Program

NOTICE:  the Club's Cultural and Social Programs have recently been merged, under Program Chair Bernie Joiner.  The Club also decided recently to make all ticketed events available to our members and guests at our discounted group rates, without any additional markup or administrative fees.  This will help to ensure that we offer the lowest possible ticket prices to our participants.

Join our social activities throughout the year for some fun and relaxation. We offer you warm camaraderie, not to mention the spirits you can enjoy while making new friendships at our happy hours. But be it hot, warm, cool or cold, the Social Program is ready to offer just the right activity to fit the climate and your needs.

Happy Hours: Every third Thursday of the month we get together at an area watering hole. Join us and meet new friends! Locations vary, nearly all are scheduled in Northern Virginia, from McLean, Tysons Corner, Fairfax, Springfield, Alexandria, Arlington.   Just added to our calendar:  a "Lucky 7" Happy Hour on the 7th day of the month, currently being held at O'Malley's Pub at the Tysons Crowne Plaza hotel. 

Parties and Events: Social gatherings celebrating seasonal events throughout the year, from wine-tastings, dances, picnics, bridge club. 

Social Meetings: are held on the first Tuesday of every month, October, December, and January through April. We hold big-time theme meetings on a Saturday night in September, our "Skifest", the roll-out of the coming season's ski trips, and a meeting in November which is a preview of Eastern trips and Ski School activities. 

Cultural Events:  Join our variety of cultural and spectator activities in the company of fellow club members and their guests. We see plays, shows, concerts, and professional sporting events; we tour museums, historic sites, and landmarks; we participate in guided walking tours; and we attend out-of-town productions, festivals, and other significant events. We usually include an optional social function either before or after the activity so that participants can meet and interact with each other.

All of our great event leaders listed under our various activities and programs are all people like you – really busy – but they are having fun meeting other people. They also need help! (Setting up and organizing prior to an event or the clean up afterwards .... think of it as a “mini tail gate” party!)  If a party is not your thing, consider leading a group to your favorite restaurant or in a book discussion.
