Debbie Pepper, Director of Membership
Spring has been in full swing with numerous opportunities for members to mix it up with a variety of fun social events, and more are on the way this summer and fall. Be sure to check out our very expanded upcoming calendar of events … there truly is something for everyone!
Young Guns of Cordillera Ranch
A social mixer group for young professionals and/or families still raising children and seeking to meet others who share this same phase of life.
The Club is excited to launch Young Guns of Cordillera Ranch with our first happy hour mixer held on Thursday, April 21. The Club, along with our Cordillera Ranch community, has experienced expansive growth in the past few years with a sizable increase of young professionals, many with young families who are excited to call Cordillera their home. Our hope is to connect those members, with limited time away from their busy work life and family obligations, to other like-minded members.
“Young Guns” will be an organized quarterly happy hour mixer dedicated to those members in this busy phase of life. The Kid’s Club is always available for those needing childcare. Watch for upcoming calendar dates and mixers…
Thursday, June 23 at 6:00pm – “Margarita Night at the Pool”
Thursday, September 8 at 6:00pm – “Theme TBD”
New Member Cocktail Reception
An opportunity for new members to socialize, make new friends and be introduced to the fabulous events at the Club.
New members were invited to a happy hour cocktail party on May 12, held poolside from 5:30-6:30pm. This special event preceded the Club’s annual “Spring Round-Up.” The big party started at 6:30pm featuring rockin’ country western band Smoke Wagon, with members two-stepping and enjoying a great barbeque buffet.
The next New Member Cocktail Reception will precede the “Oktoberfest” party for all members: Friday, September 23.
Pinot & Pearls
Back by popular demand, the Club hosted the annual “Gallery of Pearls” shopping event presented by Mike Brennan, owner and global pearl producer.
Our ladies enjoyed cocktails of sparkling wine, pinot noir and pinot grigio with a delicious buffet in-between shopping and presentations from how to wear pearls and care for pearls, and where they come from and how they are produced. Each lady was given a complimentary pair of pearl stud earrings while enjoying “before retail” pricing for their purchases along with many door prizes.
This will be back again next year… watch your calendar!
W.O.W. – “Women of Wine” “Martha Stewart on the Riviera”– Inspired Food and Wine from the South of France.
While the ladies were enjoying wine and food pairings with cooking class demonstrations from Chef Isaac, the men enjoyed a men-only event — “MOBB, Men of Beer & Bourbon,” in the Men’s locker room.
C-Star Ladies Day Out
Shop, Wine & Dine – Texas Hill Country Style
Our Cordillera ladies and their guests enjoyed a fun day of shopping, dining and wining while our Annual C-Star Member-Guest Tournament was underway for the men! The ladies began the day with breakfast at the Club, and those interested designed their own custom boots with custom boot designer, Collin Rae Nichols.
We boarded our party bus limousine for shopping in Boerne for the rest of the morning where our ladies received shopping discounts at our favorite boutiques… Celeste, Joli and Uptown Chic. With shopping bags loaded, our party bus headed to Singing Water Vineyards in Comfort for an enjoyable lunch and wine tasting.
