Most SCWDC meetings are held at the Crowne Plaza Crystal City. We meet upstairs in Veranda Cafe. Grab a beverage and some light hors d’oeuvres. You can bring food and drink into the meeting room. Also, the Veranda Cafe has a "half-price" (tasty) burger night special, lots of us take advantage of that.
Attending a meeting is an opportunity for you to find out the latest information about our ski trips and other program activities.
