Balloon festival followup

Please note that this is not a Travel Supreme event. In fact, Jim Hoover will be publishing an agenda for the rally before long. And there are conflicts between a scheduled lunch and the Elvis concert. But some of us will have non-TS family members attending the balloon festival so the info was published only for information purposes.

So keep this event in mind but only as an alternative to other scheduled events.

Balloon festival – New Year

Turns out there is a big deal balloon glow and ascension, polo match, and festival in Fredericksburg during our rally time. You can see more info on their web site, just click here.

Jim Hoover is looking into it, meanwhile, tickets are selling fast. A $20 ticket gets you in to the festival and the balloon glow the night before. You can get to/from the festival with a $5 shuttle bus from Fredericksburg.

This is just an alert that this event is going on at that time. But if there is an interest we can go as a group but we should buy festival tickets now. This is not a club event, so everyone is on their own to get tickets etc.

New Years reminder

Hello everyone,

I wanted to give a little update on the New Year’s rally. We now have 14 rigs signed up! How exciting! That means that we have one more site designated to the Traveling Supremes. The rest of the park is getting pretty booked up too so if you think you might want to go please call soon. It is The Vineyards of Fredericksburg RV park at 830-992-1237. Arrive December 28 and depart January 2. If need be, go ahead and get on the waiting list in case there are cancellations.

I will be sending out emails very soon to those who are signed up with more information.

Thank you so much for your interest in this gathering. ‎ Feel free to call or text me anytime.

James C. Hoover

Business Meeting, Day 3

Blog note:  on some devices, it isn’t obvious that you can double tap on a picture in the mosaic below.  That brings up a larger picture along with an arrow on each side so you can scroll through the pictures.  Clicking on the “X” collapses the pictures back to the mosaic.

Despite the exhaustive pace of Day 2, Day 3 didn’t let up at all.  We gathered at 9:30 and drove off to our first event, a bus tour of Fort Worth.  As usual, Gail did an excellent job of setting things up.  We had a nice bus and an excellent tour of Fort Worth.  I don’t think there was anyone on the tour that didn’t learn something!

It culminated with a short visit to the Fort Worth Stockyards where we witnessed the daily Cattle Drive.  Those long horns really live up to their name!

Lunch was at Joe T Garcia, Ft. Worth’s iconic TexMex restaurant.  If memory serves, most everyone walked off holding a box of leftovers for another full meal.  Delicious!

 

 

 

Business Meeting, Day 2

Addendum:  there has been some difficulty printing the Membership Application form, so now the Contact Us menu option has a link to a printable Membership Application.

After an exhaustive day of conducting business affairs, we decided to take some time off.  And Gail did an outstanding job of setting up activities.  First, a stop at the Weatherford Farmers Market gave us an opportunity to buy some fresh veggies.  And check out the pumpkins and other fall indications.  Then we walked across to the Vintage Car Museum, where we checked out some interesting cars.  Not only for the cars themselves, but most had an interesting history (like Aretha Franklin’s Cadillac and Lyndon Johnson’s Lincoln).

This worked up quite an appetite, so off the Boo Rays Cajun restaurant.  Made us think we were in Louisiana!  We obviously needed to walk this off, so we went to the Chandor Gardens.  These were the gardens designed and built by one of the greatest US portrait painters.  A very interesting walk, and tour of the house.

Then back to the campground where we gathered and once again discussed the state of the world.  Then off to bed, to get ready for day 3 (and hoping the rain stays away)….
