UPDATE Sat, June 20th: Half day tour to Whitewright, TX (sort-of) with brunch thrown in. We’ll start in McKinney at the RaceTrac at 1004 E University Dr 9 a.m. If we need to split the group into two run groups, we will use two different destinations. Primary brunch destination is Cattleman’s Cafe in Blue Ridge (Gerald scoped it out and said if we get close to 20 people, they will not be able to fit us all). The secondary destination is The Breakfast Stop in Boham. Both maps may be used tomorrow, so please bring both along with you. Raymond Mimick will be leading this tour so please let him know if you are coming along.
Maps: McKinney to Blue Ridge
Maps: McKinney to Bonham
Both routes cover a similar section of road and both will run through Whitewright for a short stop to take pictures if desired.
We have a tour to Whitewright, TX scheduled for this Saturday. If you would like to participate (and possibly claim Father’s Day as an excuse), please let Raymond Mimick (email@example.com) know you will join us (to make sure we have everyone before we start).
Below is our latest news on the touring-front:
Generally, we have about 16 cars attending our tours as of June 2015. We welcome all to join us. With this many cars, we highly recommend purchasing a 40-channel CB radio (this is different than an FRS radio) to hear about road conditions and participate in group discussions (if this is your first time, this is not required to get a taste of the road). Locally, a number of us have used Bonnie & Clyde’s off Harry Hines in Dallas. The Midland radios have worked well and if you want to only receive announcements, the handheld version will work.
Please review the Touring Etiquette so we are all on the same page.
