Christmas Party - 12/08/2018

posted Nov 8, 2018, 8:08 PM by tom slick

Our Christmas Party will be held at Angelo's in Irving this year on Saturday 12/8 from 1 pm to 4 pm ct.
The address is 1330 W Pioneer Dr, Irving, TX 75061.
I thought Angelo's would be a good change from La
Ha, and is priced competitively for the holiday season.
Please bring a gift as we are going to do a white elephant gift exchange.
I also need to have a head count for the party, so
please RSVP to Justin by Monday 11/26 if you will be attending the Christmas party.

Justin's email address is justin_bowman@sbcglobal.net

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.

The Fiero 35th Anniversary in East Peoria, IL - 08/08/18 to 08/12/18

posted Aug 1, 2018, 6:30 PM by tom slick

In our great country... with unrestricted travel and so much to offer... I find that the journey should be treasured as much as the destination... and it is made better when shared with friends.
Turn your travel into a mini-vacation! This is an open invite to any other adventurous Fiero souls that might want to join in all or part of the 35th Anniversary trip going from South to The Land of Lincoln (no, not Nebraska!)
We have several leaving D/FW on Saturday, Aug 4th AM. Plans are to take 30E towards Hot Springs AR and then jump on twisty Ozark roads on state-7 headed north to Branson MO. 2 nights in Branson. The Dutton Inn looks very nice, affordable at under $70 with bed choices when booked through TripAdvisor and close to several activities we could even walk to. Might be cheaper if you select a king bed or prepay. We are thinking maybe doing a run up to Springfield MO on Sunday to do the drive through Fantastic Caverns and check out the NRA gun collection museum at the Bass Pro World HQ. Lots of other options if caves and guns aren’t your bag! By noon or so on Monday... we are on the road to St. Louis. We will stop at a RT-66 Museum and the Bigfoot HQ. 2 nights in StL. Tuesday we plan to hit the Arch in the AM and the Anheuser-Busch tour including the world famous Clydesdales in the afternoon. Wednesday we have some morning options and a unique crossing of Old Man River. Then chase the Illinois River north using IL state-100 and get into Peoria about 4p via state-24 for check-in and then meet with other early birds. Note... there is not much interstate on this route... and that makes me feel great.
America is prettier on an 8point font road (the grey lines for those of you who don’t know what a paper map is) than on a freeway.
Also!!!... you don't have to book where I book... you may have rewards with some chain you prefer!  I will share the info and you just pick and choose how you want to trip!  That goes from activities to restaurants... do our thing, do your thing, we may do your thing because it is better than our thing... you get the idea. 💡

Here's a link from TripAdvisor for The Dutton:
https://www.tripadvisor.com...ranson_Missouri.html

As for Saint Louis... Tom Slick and I rolled the dice 🎲 🎲 and went for a casino in downtown.  It is on the river and a 15 minute walk to the Arch. It sounded more interesting than being off in a random suburb.  
I used Hotwire... total for room + tax + resort fee is $100/day and includes free parking.  (Now we don't have to mess with parking for the Arch).   Ratings are mediocre, but the locale and view sound nice.
Just put your dates in (check-in Aug 6th check-out 8th). City is Saint Louis...
The casino is The Lumeire... and can probably be booked lots of different ways... I just used Hotwire for that deal.

For the 30th Annv event, I organized the big gathering at Funderburks in Illinois where we merged caravans from Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois... it made for a great cruise to Indy until a Fiero broke down... (an Indy no less)... Hopefully something like that can happen again (well, not the break down)...

Join us for all or part! Feel free to post options or suggestions and regardless we see you en route or in Peoria... travel safely!
