A Message from our President

Dear Fellow HOGS,

​Welcome​ to Houston Outdoor Group.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2014, and looking forward to an even better one this year. I am Ron Drumm and I have the great honor to serve as President Of HOG.

We are a social organization. Our activities include camping and pretty much anything outdoors. We also have some indoor activities such as monthly pot lucks, game night, and eating out for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. We attend plays, concerts, etc. The mutual theme here is--fellowship and fun.

Take a look at our Events calendar, or monthly Newsletter to find out what's going on when. If you have any ideas about an activity, let us know! My personal favorites are Pedernales Falls and Enchanted Rock State Parks. I've also been blueberry picking with the group 2 years running. There are many amazing women and men in our midst; get to know some of them.

Thanks for being a part of HOG! See ya.
Ron Drumm
