Radios! Handheld radios, don't forget to bring them!

Cruise details:
Ok, now for the long awaited details of the cruise. Our initial meeting place for this year's RoundUp will be at the Blue Bell Creamery at 1300 on Friday. We will spend some time at the observation deck, the gift shop and of course the ice cream parlor. The observation deck is open until 1400 and the gift shop and parlor are open till 1700. There is no set time I'm expecting to leave the Blue Bell Creamery but we'll check into the hotel afterwards and have time to unwind from our respective trips. This is free time until dinner. Dinner reservations are at 1830. We'll be eating at Yumm! Sweets and Eats in the heart of Brenham, TX. located at 106 E Alamo St. Our reservations run until 2100, at which time we'll head back to the hotel. Be sure to fill up your car with gas Friday night so we can start right in on Saturday. Walmart and a couple of gas stations are near the hotel. We'll be having goodie bags for the trip too! Please bring your contributions if you'd like to participate. Elvie and I will collect them on Friday night and for those arriving on Sat we will accept after dinner at the hotel then.

Saturday morning breakfast at the hotel. Be aware it is only a continental breakfast, no hot food items except for waffles. We plan to leave the hotel at 0915. Drive about 45 minutes to Old Baylor Park in Independence, TX. Good photo opportunities at the park as well as several signs around the park describing what you see. After arriving at 1000 and spending about 45 minutes at the park we'll drive to our lunch stop at Mallett Brother's Barbeque, 9339 Hwy 6, in Navasota, TX. Lunch will be 1115 - 1245. After lunch we'll drive another 40 minutes to the Historic Austin County Jail Museum in downtown Bellville, TX. No entry fee but donations are appreciated. We'll be at the museum from 1330 until 1415. Leaving the museum we'll drive 45 minutes to Washington on the Brazos State Park, arriving at 1500. Here we will have 1 1/2 hours to explore the park and what it has to offer. There is a guided tour to independence hall, a recreation of the place where the Texas forefathers made the formal declaration of independence from Mexico. There is also the Star of the Republic Museum and Barrington Living History Farm. It will be difficult to see everything there so I encourage you to visit their web site to see what you'd like to visit while there. Driving back to the hotel from the park should take about 30 minutes, arriving at 1700. This will give everyone about an hour or so to unwind before dinner at the Los Cabos Mexican Grill & Steak House, at 2800 TX-36. Dinner is very close to the hotel, walking is possible, and will be from 1830 - 2100. Back at the hotel we'll pack and distribute the goodie bags.

Sunday we'll head off to the Chappell Hill Bakery and Deli at 0900 for breakfast and goodbyes. Save some room in your vehicle for some great baked goods to-go if this is of interest!

Ruckus 17 ~~ The Texas Three Twisted Sisters ~~ Oct 12-14

posted Sep 23, 2018, 1:59 PM by tom slick   [ updated Oct 8, 2018, 2:17 AM ]

For all Ruckus attendees,

I hope you have a safe journey down to the Hill Country.  If you would like to join a caravan from North Texas, then be prepared for an early start.  I normally hate early starts, but our logic is that with a 4-5 hour trip ahead of us, we are hoping to get to the resort with enough time to enjoy the river for a few hours before supper.  The weather is finally starting to turn cooler, but i am determined to get a bathing suit wet this trip.

The morning rendezvous will be in Hillsboro at 0800 at the Country Czech Bakery, 302 Elm st.
We will leave at 0830 with whoever has made it.  Will take state roads down to Mason Texas for lunch at the Willow Creek Cafe. The food looks good and they have pie, Tom.  After lunch, we will take a quick stroll through the county museum next door and then boogie on down to the River Inn for afternoon fun.  They have all sorts of water equipment, and you are welcome to bring fishing gear.

Don’t forget to bring:
Cash for your shirt order (about $20 per shirt we think)
SWAG bag items
Any random cool donations for our fund raising raffle
Family Radio
==============================================================================================================================
This will be a drivers Ruckus featuring one of the most famous (notorious) cruises in Texas!

Dates: October 12-14
Location: Hunt, TX
Hotel: River Inn Resort & Conference Center @ 800.841.0501
https://www.riverinnresort.com/
ask for the ‘2018 Pontiac Group’ when reserving!

The resort is beautiful. I mean it... we drove 900 miles of roads before picking this place. They have 4 fire pits (wood provided), numerous grills, a covered gathering area if it rains, life jackets-canoes-tubes provided if the weather is warm, you can fish, and is kid friendly.

Friday: supper, a Kerrville restaurant
Saturday: 1 Sister then BBQ lunch. Sister 2 & 3. Lost Maples Winery (Lost Maples State Park very nearby if folks would rather see trees than vines). Supper in Kerrville.
Sunday: Mexican Brunch in Kerrville

Not to scare anyone away... but I want to give full disclosure for Saturday:
The area we will attempt to drive ‘as spirited as traffic allows’ is fairly isolated. No cell service in much of it. Try to make sure your car is in good repair, I can only imagine how long or how much $ a tow might run... and not many places to easily pull off.
This is not to discourage or scare anyone away! You should still come! Float the river on Saturday if the drive is not for you... or maybe just make lunch and then call it from there. We will do the kinkiest sister (TX-337) in the morning.

We will do swag bags... so bring your two dozen or so pieces of swag!
Long sleeved R17 themed shirts are in the works!
As always... Bring a radio!

Things to know for Ruckus:

1). Bring a radio... we use channel #2. Bring batteries for said radio.
2). We are doing SWAG bags, so if you want a bag... bring 20-30 small cheap made bought clever random mundane useful annoying items to throw in the bag
3). The cruise is 199mi in total length. It will include 2 gas stops, a BBQ lunch around 1130, a souvenir stop, and a winery stop. (** winery optional, there is a motorcycle museum, a state park, or head back to the resort as other options)
4). Winery setup is $16 for a 1/2oz pour of all the Lost Maples wines (which is like 9-10 of them). It will total a little over a standard glass of wine for the full ‘tour’. Or you can just buy wine by the glass or bottle.
5). All but Sat lunch meals are in Kerrville (about 15mi from the resort). Cajun/seafood/grill on Friday night. Sat night is Southern comfort food. Sunday will be Mexican breakfast.
6). There is no breakfast or food at the resort, so maybe bring your own early morning meal if needed (every condo has a kitchen), though lunch on Saturday will be fairly early and we are doing a breakfast farewell on Sunday.
7). Depending on local traffic or other clubs on the Sisters... the drive might be ‘spirited.’ Please make sure your suspension, brakes, tires, and driver module are up to a 199 mile, incredibly curvy cruise in remote country.
😎. Ruckus is free, however... if you would like to donate some items for raffle or prizes... it would be appreciated. The money goes into a fund to help next years show or defray unexpected expenses.
9). The combined Midwest Fiero Clubs have donated two shirts from the 35th Anniversary Show to support Ruckus! Thanks guys!!
10). Let me know what size of shirt you’d like! It will be long sleeve and about $20 with design ideas taken from a post lunch meeting of people I forced to stay until we had a shirt!
11). I know some people that wanted to dress up even though it is early for Halloween. Far be it from me to say no to fun! Dress away!
12). There is 1 room left in our block. I think there may be another that is just unbooked for general public. If the resort is sold out, Kerrville/Ingram is your next best bet.
