Time to begin!

This year’s first event will be held in Carmine, TX March 15-16. Plan to arrive on Thursday to be on time for the 9:30 am ride on Friday morning.

From the “Calendar of Events” tab:

March 15th & 16th, 2019 – 13th Annual Carmine Ride–Carmine,TX. Come join us in Carmine, Texas (about 20 miles west of Brenham on US 290) this spring! Here’s what we have planned. The rides start at 9:30 from the Pecan Grove Inn parking lot on both Friday and Saturday mornings, so those coming from a distance need to arrive on the 14th to make the 9:30 AM start time on the 15th. The Carmine Chamber of Commerce has asked us to park our scooters in front of the Depot Museum when we get back from Friday’s ride. They want to attract visitors & townspeople to the ribbon-cutting ceremony that afternoon. The meet will be at the Pecan Grove Inn B & B, 233 Augsburg Street in Carmine, http://www.pecangroveinn.com. We (yes, that’s my wife and I) have six rooms. Call James or Jane Press at (281) 433-8845 to book or for further information

Happy Valentines Day from TCC

As a surprise, a club roster has been printed with the membership of 2018-2019.

The money was raised by the auction at the State meet. It will be mailed with the State magazine which is at the printers now.

G and C Printers of Bastrop created the list from Chrysti Love’s club membership. Richard Kesselus and Tommy Goode located this business.

IF you find an incorrect entry, let Chrysti know.

2018 New Year’s Eve Party

For a change, the Concho Valley and Big Country Clubs chose to change their annual Christmas party to a New Year’s Eve party.  James and Barbara Perry offered to host the meeting at their home in Lubbock. It was a central location for Abilene, San Angelo, and Amarillo. Our Central Texas areas were represented also.

Our Chinese Christmas brought out some interesting gifts and laughs. There is always fun with this group.

Don Henry recapped 2019 events. PLEASE make your reservations ASAP for the Big Bend ride in April. See the Calendar of Events page for phone numbers and all the dates for next year’s event.

Don Henry suggested we might play games and enjoy celebrating the New Year’s beginning. Some just hoped to stay awake until 9:00. No games but there were so many friends to visit and catch up with that we stayed until 10:00. It was decided it was 12:00 midnight somewhere. So with “Happy New Year” wishes, we departed for the night.

A BIG thank you to James and Barbara Perry. It was a wonderful party. Our hotel, La Quinta Lubbock North was both convenient and and newly renovated.

These are special people who were there from Devine, Tx. TCC #25, Hazel and William Davis. Our club was begun because the first 30 members had a dream of preserving Cushman Scooters. William rode his scooter on Thursday and Friday. He and Hazel drove chase vehicle on Saturday. The “Caution: Cushman Scooters” is on the back of his trailer.
