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 along Lake Livingston, north of Cold Springs.  We are forming a posse of a few brave men and women to chase Pancho.  We will be starting from the East 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.  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.

Smokey and the Bandit

Big Enos (Pat McCormick) wants to drink Coors at a truck show, but in 1977 it was illegal to sell Coors east of the Mississippi River without a permit. Truck driver Bo “Bandit” Darville (Burt Reynolds) agrees to pick up the beer in Texas and drive it to Georgia within 28 hours. When Bo picks up hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), he attracts the attention of Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason). Angry that Carrie will not marry his son, Justice embarks on a high-speed chase after Bandit.

Riding the Rails
Texas State RR – Palestine to Rusk and Back
March 8-9, 2019

Become immersed in the romance of train travel as we ride relaxed inside historic first class 1920’s rail cars, being pulled behind a diesel locomotive. The experience is like none other, through scenic pine and mixed oak and Dogwood trees (hopefully in bloom.) Join us and create a memory that will last a lifetime.

We have a group rate of $65.05 per passenger for the 4-hour train trip, and a special flat rate of $8.68 for a pre-ordered box lunch at the Rusk turn around. TSRR does not allow for individuals to call in for group individual payment. I have prepaid for 30 train reservations and box lunches. If you would like to go, please get me your check. Right now I have 28 seats left – don’t hesitate.
