New: February 20th 1/2 day tour
We’ve added a new tour day (weather permitting) for February 20th. The tour will start at 1 p.m. at the Home Depot in Ceburne and doing our normal circuitous driving stuff (with a potty break or two thrown in) until 5:00pm when we would arrive at 1187 Cafe, just south of Benbrook, just east of Highway 377. If possible, Marc will try to arrange a parade lap for everyone around MSR in Cresson – we’ll be going right by it.
1187 Cafe has two rooms that seat 22 a piece. If you are interested in attending the tour (and want to include dinner), please RSVP to Marc Leediker at firstname.lastname@example.org by end of business Feb 12, in order to give Michelle an accurate head count.
If we fill up fairly quickly, Michelle said we could overflow into the adjacent room if we need to. She is asking that we limit our entree selections to 3 or 4 so that she can shop accordingly, seat us all at one time, and maintain her level of quality and customer satisfaction!!
Update: March 4-6th Fredericksburg
The tour dates changed due to hotel availability but Fredericksburg is ready to go. We’ll be staying at Sunday House Inn again this year. Judy has reserved 12 rooms (most are Kings, some are doubles) at 129.95/night. Please call Judy at 830-997-4484 to reserve your room and tell them that the rooms are reserved under the Lone Star BMW. She will hold the rooms until February 28th.
When you make your reservations, let Raymond Mimick know (email@example.com) and if you want to join us for a group dinner for either Friday night and/or Saturday night (last year, the group split up to different destinations).
