Water Valley 2021

The Concho Valley club hosted their annual “Ride to Eat” event April 8-11. We had 28 people who spent part of their days enjoying a great time together.

Thursday the people gathered at Harper Campground in Water Valley. Martin and Jane Stafford, Larry Rose, and Gloria Henslee came in for the day. Pete and Sharon Henderson, Gary and Betty Mathis, James and Jane Press, Don and Judy Henry, James Perry, Gene Perry, Joe and Joyce Faltinek, Ben and Gene Sargent, Tyler and Jennifer Johnson and their 2 children, Les and Carolyn,and Raymond and Chrysti Love were all thrilled to be together.

On Thursday night, 15 people enjoyed dinner together at Los Panchitos in San Angelo

On Friday morning we met at Ramos Cafe in Carlsbad for breakfast and to get ready to ride.

9 scooters were followed by the chase vehicle driven by Ben Sargent.

The scooters roamed around the Grape Creek area and back to Water Valley. After fueling, off we went over the Divide where we found bluebonnets in full bloom. Then into Sterling City for “lunch”. ( a nutritional way to save face about an ice cream stop).

One thought on “Water Valley 2021

  1. This was a very good story and pictures and the weather looked good and everyone looked like they enjoyed every minute of it. I am really missing those events and I hardly know any of the names on the pictures. That is bad for me, right? Keep up the good work and the good times.
