Today was the first full UCOA (United Clubs Of Austin) meeting of 2023. We had good attendance, and several events to talk about. You can get the details at the UCOTEXAS.ORG web site on the calendar. Here are a few photos.
Ice storm in Bartlett and surrounding areas. The ice accumulation broke lost of branches and also power lines. City has been working to repair everything, but electricity isn’t expected to be restored until sometime Saturday… This is Thursday… Uh! We are plenty warm, with the Natural Gas space heaters we had installed after the storm of 2021. Anyway, here are a few photos.
Tomorrow is Legislative Day 2023, the day we “the Bikers” visit out legislators and speak about the bills we are introducing this legislative season. So, today we met at the American Legion Post in Round Rock to hear our Defenders talk about what we hope to accomplish.We had a good group in attendance, including lots of Motorcycle club members as well as lots of independent riders. Here are a few photos of the festivities.
Debbie and I headed out today to a benefit for Guardian Gadget, being held at Cliff’s in Rockdale. After we got turned around a bit we discovered that there is a highway between Bartlett (where we live) and Rockdale (where the event was being held). So all we had to do was pull out of our driveway and turn right on 487, then drive 33 miles and we would arrive within a block of our destination. On arriving we found a parking place and walked a block or so to Cliff’s. We got to have a great time talking with old friends and sampling Cliff’s cuisine, and of course making a small donation toward Gadget’s recovery. As you can see from the photos there was also an auction and live music was being performed for all to enjoy. Oh, and I would be amiss if I didn’t mention that when someone from your club arrives in a truck, and you discover that the water pump has gone out, you can be sure there will be enough tools and muscle power available to replace it on the spot. Finally, we stopped at the Kay Theatre for an obligatory photo of a beautiful building, and of the Texas Historical Landmark sign of course. Another well spent Saturday afternoon. Enjoy the photos!
