Below is our calendar of events. Please check for upcoming events such as club meetings, charity events, board meetings, autocross or racing events and road trips.
A few years ago the National Afro American Corvette Club (NAACC) did an annual event for all Houston based Corvette Clubs to get together. This is back and they are inviting us to join them on October 20th to participate in a Cruise and Display fun day to Royal Purple Raceway.
This year we have been invited to join the Cleetus and Cars Event at Houston Raceway (Royal Purple Raceway). Come and join us and watch the Demolition Drag Racing, Burnout Contest, and Drag Racing all day. Our goal is to have over 100 Corvettes parade down the track between Drag Racing and Demolition Racing.
Also, there will be Corvette Exhibition Racing in which any one of the guest Corvette Clubs can participate. All racers must go through the Race Techs in order to participate and the fee is $40. If you register online the entry fee is $15 per person and $20 per person at the gate in order to be admitted. Attached is the flyer for registration information. It has been two years since we had an opportunity as Corvette Enthusiasts to get together. For more information go to WWW.HoustonRaceway.com and click on Events to purchase tickets for $15 per person.

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.

Palestine is approximately 2.5 hr. drive from Houston, my thought is to leave Friday afternoon to make the drive. I have an area reserved for the cars at the train depot, but we have to be there at 9:00 am. to park. If you choose to get up at O dark thirty and get to the depot, bear in mind, we have to board the train at 10:00 am. I will be happy to send you the map and route.
