Road Trips

Start with a full tank and an empty bladder!

Periodically the club gets together to travel to a fun spot. Road trips can be a one-day event or a weekend or even a longer. All of the road trips have a theme such as the Tour de Fleur, the Fall Foliage Tour, the Bandit Run, or the Round Top Trip just to name a few.

The Tour de Fleur is an annual road trip to Fredericksburg, Texas over the Easter weekend. The Fall Foliage Trip is a trip through East Texas to enjoy the changing color of the forest which ends up with lunch somewhere. The Bandit Run is a fictitious run through the region chasing Pancho Villa in which we usually catch up with him at a restaurant…

Fun Fun Fun ’til her daddy takes the T-Bird away.  T-Bird!?  We don’t drive no stinkin’ T-Birds!

9:00 AM, Wheels Turning at 9:30 AM

Pancho is back and we are going out to get him again. Come join us on the chase for the legendary bandit, Pancho Villa. He is rumored to be camped somewhere in Sam Houston forest. He is too close to Houston and up to his usual tricks. We are forming a posse of a few brave men and women to chase Pancho. We will be starting from the Northeast side this time. It is guaranteed to be a run full of twists and turns and full-throttle blasts. After Pancho has been thoroughly banished from Texas, it will be time to water our horses at the Ransom’s Steak House & Saloon, Montgomery, TX. Bring your fast car and pray for shine. No rain allowed for this event. On this run, we will cover about 150 miles and it will last about 5 hours including lunch. Pencil in the date now.
Please RSVP for this event. We are expecting a large turnout and we need to let the restaurant know how many to expect.
This event will be open to all Corvette owners. Invite your friends and potential new club members. All are welcome. Bring a handheld walkie talkie or a CB if you have one. It is always fun so come on out in the middle of winter and enjoy yourselves with a fine group of fellow Corvette enthusiasts.
