Heck, I just might make it to the one at Lucy's! After all it is about 3 minutes from the house :)

My wife will start working there in a few weeks once they move to their new location around the corner. Its moving into the town square proper area if anyone knows downtown Celina, its only about 100 feet and around the corner. They did a whole new joint from the ground up on the inside and from what she is telling me its very cool. With the new place they are going to have an actual bakery which she will be running. If we can get a head count and a time she said that she might be able to reserve a section for us.

When someone gets exact details about the May Pie Run (May 31 has been suggested, along with Fort Davis) and exact times and place, please post it. Some of us will be in flux, movement, travel so may not get to plan on it util the last minute. At any rate, getting out of movement might take some prior planning.

OK guys, the wife started at Lucy's yesterday and said she talked to the owner about us. She said that its great and welcomes us entirely. Also said that she will set aside an area and have an extra waitress or two on hand just for us depending on how many plan on attending.

Any ideas for the May 31 location yet? :eat:

Bump TTT.

Just a reminder that my wife runs the bakery at Lucy's in Celina and they are fully prepared to give us our own section and waitresses if we can give them an approximate headcount beforehand. They will also make sure to have extra baked goods on hand to accommodate us as well.

I know I will be there, its a whole 3 minutes from my house. Anyone else?

There will be a separate thread for this one soon - no need to clog the schedule thread.

Besides - it is only the Oneth of the month and the last Pie Run was only 3 days ago! :giveup:

I really want to do the Marble Falls Pie Run but it will be around 500 miles round trip from Garland. I did 450 when we did the Marshall Pie Run and I was ready to get off that bike. However, the last 90 miles or so was Interstate which was possibly the reason why I got so bored/tired at the end. I have almost zero endurance for the super slab.

Any of you DFW guys going to do this one? Maybe its time to discover a new max miles in a day.

Maybe we could car pool. My Avalanche is real comfy on long rides......

August? Not me... heat isn't my thing. I'm kind of wondering what the weather will be like for the September run down to the coast, though.

I suspect that there will be a group or more headed down that way. I am planning to go & will post up a route as the day gets closer...

Pie...... I like Pie. The Bluebonnett has really good pie. Anybody from H-Town going that I might be able to tag along with?
So far there's a group meeting in Navasota and another from somewhere (yet undecided) in West/Southwest Houston and meeting up in La Grange for the final push into Marble Falls.

This is the initial draft of the Pie Run schedule. I'm waiting for a couple more Pie Scout reports to come in, so I may switch a couple of locations around yet.

Jan 26: Ranchman's Cafe (Ponder)
Feb 23: Tony's Family . . .

. . . Let me know your thoughts.
Obviously it's waaaaaaaaaaaay too late for this season, but here's a suggestion for next season. Maybe have at least one pie run more to the north & west so some of the West Texas and Panhandle riders can meet the rest of you without having to make a full weekend (or more) out of a pie run. It's a darned long way from Fritch to the DFW area and beyond. :rider: Ponder is the closest 2008 event to me and is 345 miles away; just sayin' :scratch:

I hear ya.

Since I was responsible for the current schedule, I will say that during the window that I was soliciting ideas there was a small number (read: about 1) submitted and reviewed for potential candidates out that way. Of course, anyone is welcome and encouraged to be a Pie Scout and check a place out anytime during the year and post up. The place needs decent parking available and needs to seat medium to large groups. Most of all, the pie needs to be good and diverse in selection. You can check the Pie Scouting thread for previous submissions and ideas.

If you folks in the Panhandle have some good eats, GREAT! Post up some scouting runs and I'm sure Chuck (new Pie Man Gilk51) will work to incorporate them into the schedule next year. It was always my goal to make the rotation as fair as possible.

Oh-and if there is a particular time in the year that is better to come, please post that, too. Sometimes better weather or other events in the area may be a benefit or a detraction.

Yeah, I wasn't very active on this board when you did the scouting request. But I had such a good time meeting some of the TWT folks on a Panhandle pie run over the weekend that I though it would be pretty cool to try to get an even more diverse group together occasionally. That said, my wife and I make a couple of trips to Denton each year (usually in the cage tho) as well as a couple to Big Spring. What I'm thinking, is that we might try to make it a point to take some alternate routes and stop in various places to check out their pie over the winter. Come spring, we could have a some place picked out and report back here. Also hoping some others here will do the same.

BTW, must be a really long way to get pie from Renton. :eek2:

Sound good. Looking forward to the reports!

:doh: Yeah, I'm trying to establish a Pie Run up here, too, but I don't have the luxury of a well built and maintained site like this. Can't beat the riding, though!

I have asked Chuck to start the September/Blessing Pie Run thread so we cn begin to post our plans and routes. My calculations are a little under 2 hours from Fort Bend County to Matagorda County/Blessing but I want to ride the back roads instead of US 59 to Hwy 71. Once the new thread is up, I will elaborate with my proposed route, etc.

As much as I like Debbies in Hutto that date conflicts with the Harvest Classic in Lukenbach, maybe a change in dates for Hutto?

The Harvest Classic is over rated, IMO. Its not worth changing the date. Only a handfull of TWT'er attended the past couple years anyway.

For a non-profit event that benefits charities.. I don't necessarily believe it's overrated. :shrug:

To each his own.. guess I'll be missing my first opportunity at a pie run. I, for one, am going to Luckenbach. :mrgreen:

Just noticed that the November date for Edom is the 29th which is Thanksgiving weekend. In the past, we have made it the week prior.

So, I am thinking we should change the date to 11/22 before everyone makes their plans...

:huh:

There are always going to be conflicts between events. October seems to have more conflicts due to the usually good weather.

Does the destination have to be in Texas? I'm new here, so maybe the said pies have to be baked and consumed in Texas. But if not, maybe a run could be planned for Pietown NM.

www.pietown.com

Its very scenic in that part of the world, there is the VLA (tours, anyone?) and some good eating and free camping at Pietown. They even have a pie festival in September.

Just my 2 cents.

yes!

just a thought......i know you guys put a lot of work in this and i commend yall for it. but the last two runs are real close to the holidays and a lot of people travel to be with family those weekends. so i was wondering about moving Nov. to the 22nd and DEC. to the 6th.????? i would say the 20th for DEC. but last weekend shopping.....you know. just typing out loud.


i said that on 1-1-08 in the 2008 pie run schedule and everyone blew me off!! :doh:

I don't remember that so it must have gotten lost in the shuffle.

The December PR is typically an overnighter between Christmas and New Year and there can be some family conflicts then. I've been dragging my feet on this one, thinking the gas prices, the economy, and hurricane Ike may have placed restrictions on how many folks can attend...
