We will be holding a club ride this Saturday to BMW Motorcycles of North Dallas http://www.bmwmotorcyclesdallas.com/ at 900 Avenue K, #300 Plano, TX 75074. We'll be leaving the Legend's parking lot in Jacksonville at 8:30 a.m., with a planned arrival in Plano at noon. The dealership will be cooking hamburgers.

You can meet us at Legend's or meet us at the dealer. I'm attaching the GPS file that Ron made.

See you Saturday.

And as the deer are in rut, they are more stupid than usual, hard as that is to imagine.
Be careful out there.

The December meeting of the East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club will be held this Thursday, the 1st at Legend's Burgers in Jacksonville (1630 S. Jackson) at 6:30 p.m.

If you missed the picnic, you really missed out. We had a great time and hope to do it again next fall. We had 29 attendees.

The December club ride will be on the 31st to the Moosehead Cafe. We will leave out from Jacksonville, time of departure to be determined.

In January some of us are looking to carpool up to the International Motorcycle Show on Saturday the 14th.

Hope to see you at the meeting.

The February meeting of the East Texas BMW+ Motorcycle Club will be held this Thursday, the 2nd at Legend's Burgers in Jacksonville (1630 S. Jackson) at 6:30 p.m.

A little news:
March
We are working on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens, TX. It'll probably be the third Saturday, but I have to confirm with our illustrious tour guide. After paying the entry fee, you can fish in the Center's lake that day using their tackle without a fishing permit.

April
A group of us will be riding to the Texas Hill Country the weekend of April 7th for the Hill Country Hangout in Kerrville. Rally fee is $35 before April 1, $45 at the gate. Camping is included in the rally fee. There are a few cabins and RV sites available for an additional fee. See their website for more info: http://www.sabmwra.org/html/club_rally.html

May
Our Fifth Annual Texas National Picnic is on the BMWMOA website and we will be submitting an ad to the Owner's News magazine. Camping for $5/person/day at the Texas State Railroad RV Park & Campground, Rusk will be from Friday, May 19 - Sunday, May 21. The picnic will be held at noon on Saturday. I'm working on door prizes. We have the Dining Hall reserved for Saturday and 15 group campsites reserved Friday through Sunday morning. RSVP to me if you are going to camp. You can pay in advance or pay when you show up.

July
A group of us are headed to Paonia, Colorado in July for the Top of the Rockies Rally. http://www.bmwmcc.org/tor_rally.php This will be a six or seven day trip. We plan to stay in hotels headed there and back, and camp at the rally.

Hope we see you at the meeting and on the road.

We discovered today that the biggest fishing tournament of the year is happening this Saturday at Lake Fork Marina, and it will be very crowded with limited parking.

We are moving the Saturday morning ride to Richies in Hawkins, on U.S. 80, in between Mineola & Gladewater.

Hope to see you there around 8 or 8:30.
