Here are some preliminary details of a few events planned for 2019. As more details are added you will find complete information in the “Rallies” option on the main menu (on the left). Also, we will let you know through the blog as others are added. Stay tuned!

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!

First United Methodist Church. And lots of construction equipment too
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)….
Can you guess the time of year?

We have around 11 member rigs here, which means 22 members in attendance. We also have some visitors (in an actual Travel Supreme motor home!) who we are happy to meet and greet.
The meeting started with an informal gathering, where the fate of the world was discussed. And many other topics came up as well, especially how much we all like the RVing lifestyle! The we were invited into the club house, where Gail had prepared a terrific meal for us. Delicious ham, potato casserole, pea salad and delicious brownies were attacked with the usual Traveling Supreme gusto. Not to forget some of the most delicious yeast rolls ever! After which the meeting was called to order.
After the Pledge of Allegiance, we discussed past meetings, and Jim Hoover discussed the upcoming New Years Rally. A table was setup with signup sheets for additional events and activities. New officer election results will be posted in a Business Meeting post followup. Several current members were recognized for continued service to the club.
For everyone who plans to come to Fredericksburg for New Years, I would like to get some feedback on who might want to attend the Rockbox theater on December 29th at 4:00 PM for a matinee performance of a tribute to Elvis. They are holding 24 seats for us until October 15th. The cost is $50.88 per person payable by card when you make reservations. That is a group rate but I should advise that the tickets are non refundable.
The other option is to wait until we are there and sure that we will be able to attend. The tickets will cost slightly more and we won’t be seated together. Also, the show is currently 1/3 sold out.
The Rock Box performances are worth the price of admission but I’m not sure about the nonrefundable part.
Please let me know what you think so we can book some seats or let them go. I will also be at the business meeting to discuss but a quick phone call, text or email would be appreciated.
The 2018 General Business Meeting and Rally will be held October 10-14, 2018 in Aledo, Texas (just west of Ft. worth). It will be hosted by James and Gail Smith. We will stay at the Cowtown RV Park, 7000 Interstate 20 East (exit 418), Aledo. They are holding spots for us until September 15. You may reserve by calling 817-441-7878 and ask for Janie. She is aware of details for us especially for those with larger rigs. She has a special section for 40-45 foot rigs. Our rally rate is $31 per night and includes rally room. We will forward itinerary and activity details later, but there should be lots of fun things to do in this area!
