Mark,

You might bring a couple bungees or a bungee net in case you win a door prize bigger than a t-shirt (I'm thinking you usually ride with just a little bitty tail bag).

See you in the morning.

I'll try to save you a spot next to the K75S so that we can establish the "Flying Brick Sub-Unit" of the East Texas BMW Plus Motorcycle Club! :sun:

Well, I would be helping if I could find him; been trying all day with No Joy. He seems to have been vaporized by a rampaging Martian, or something. I haven't given up but am getting a tad discouraged and it's looking like I missed a great event for nothing, but Hey, a friend's a friend and I wouldn't be much of one if I didn't at least try.

Hope he's not in jail . . . again!

Thanks to everyone who showed up early to help set up and everyone who worked the event!

We had 104 attendees from 51 different communities, towns, and cities in Texas & Louisiana; I listed them all below. Our first year we had 24 attendees, the second year we had about 75, and last year we had about 55 (we were in between days of thunderstorms).

We have a few door prizes and some freebies left over, so we'll bring some to giveaway to members at club meetings for the next several months.

It was a lot of fun.

Next year will be even better, with the picnic in the middle of three days of camping at Rusk State Park.

We had four members pay their dues and we picked up 11 new members! We are at 45 paid members for the year. I believe in 2015 we ended the year at 49.

Thanks again for all those that helped out and attended.

The 5th annual Texas National Picnic will be held this Saturday at the Texas State Railroad RV park and campground in Rusk, TX. Some of us plan to camp on Friday & Saturday, and probably will get soaked.

The picnic is on Saturday, bring your own lunch to throw on the grill.
