On average, we have about 16 cars attending our tours.  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).

Please review the Touring Etiquette prior to attending a tour in order to understand our rules and regulations.

2018 Final Tour:

December 19 – Interlochen Christmas Light Tour

Join us for a fun filled evening touring the fabulous Christmas lights in the famous Interlochen neighborhood located in Arlington! It’ll be a great evening of looking at lights followed by fellowship and dinner in Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth. This will be a great family friendly event that you won’t want to miss. We will meet up promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind Wendy’s at 1500 Eastchase Parkway, Fort Worth.

2019 Tour Update

Mark your calendars for our 2019 tour schedule. This year’s out-of-town trips will be a return to the Twisted Sisters in the Texas Hill Country, a trip to Colorado and a trip out to Greenville, SC in October.

January 1st – Tuesday – 9:00a-noon: Hair of Dog

Ringing in the New Year, we’ll head out for a morning enjoying some twisty roads.  We’ll start out from the QA in Burleson nearest to Joshua, TX (2690 SW Wilshire Blvd Burleson, TX 76028) and then enjoy some of the roads along the way to Glen Rose and then onward to either Cranfils Gap or Hico for lunch (still working on the New Year’s Day food option).

March 1-3 – Friday-Sunday: Return to the Twisted Sisters

To change this up this year, we’re going to head a little further South away from Fredericksburg.  This year, we’ll stay in Kerrville, TX.  While our trip down to the hill country will still be too early for Blue Bonnets, we will still get to enjoy the twisty roads known as the twisted sisters (RR 337, 336, 335).  Saturday night, we’ll look at options to head into San Antonio.  Sunday, we’ll have an enjoyable return trip back to the DFW area.  This out-of-town trip typically costs about $600 for budget purposes.

April 13 – Saturday: Bluebonnet Tour

Dennis will lead our group along the Ennis Blue Bonnet Festival, enjoying the sites along the way.  This will be much closer to a cruise along the route to take in the beauty of nature.

April 20 – Saturday: Cranfills Gap Tour

Easter weekend, the Lone Star Chapter takes off in search of some interesting roads.  Brian will be leading the group back to Cranfills Gap and the Horny Toad restaurant.

June 15 – Saturday: Muenster Run 9:00a

This route takes us from Chisholm Trail Elementary School in Sanger, TX up and round to our favorite bridge over the Red River and back to Muenster for lunch.  After lunch, we’ll lead a group over to Nocona and visit the Horton Classic Car Museum.

July 10-14 – Wednesday – Sunday: Colorado

This multi-day trip will leave on a Wednesday, stop in Amarillo the first night and enjoy TEXAS (https://www.texas-show.com/) an outdoor musical within the Palo Duro Canyon State Park.  Then, we’ll continue to head into Colorado and cooler weather, awesome sights and twisty roads.  We plan to stay West of Denver and visit things like the Rocking Mountain National Park and find some interesting places along the way.  We’ll setup MotorSportReg.com and work to keep the hotel costs at $150/night ($600), so budget about $1500 for the entire trip (fuel + hotel + food).

July 27 – Saturday: Potential combined tour with Sunbelt Chapter

This year, we’d like to join the Sunbelt chapter in Oklahoma and/or Texas and meet new and old friends just over the border.  Please stay tuned for more details.

August 17 – Saturday: East Texas Tour with stop at BMW of Tyler

We’ll start from Buc-ees in Terrell at 8:00a and then take some twisty-style roads toward Tyler, stopping at BMW of Tyler and hopefully adding more friends along the way.  We’ll then take a circular route to Mineola and stop at the East Texas Burger Co for lunch.

September 8 – Sunday: McKinney Afternoon Drive

One of our few Sunday drives, we’ll head out from the RaceTrac around 2:30p in McKinney, enjoy some of the roads north of McKinney and stop in Sherman for dinner.

September 21 – Saturday: Southwest Fort Worth Tour

We’ll return to some of our favorite roads in the Southwest Fort Worth area with a stop in Hico to enjoy a good lunch.

October 15-19 – Tuesday-Saturday: Oktoberfest in Greenville, South Carolina

This is the 50th anniversary of the Oktoberfest and there are some rumors that O’fest in the future might look a little differently going forward.  Make plans this year to head out to South Carolina for a big party in Greenville, home of the BMW Car Club of America, BMW CCA Foundation, the BMW Performance Center and the Spartenburg, SC plant.  Typically for a week-long event, a budget of about $2,500 should be expected.

December 14 – Saturday: Toy Run

While delayed this year by a weekend, we’ll still plan to make a toy run, starting at the AP Travel Center in Valley View (13965 S IH 36 Valley View, TX) and run East, enjoying the roads long the way.
