Our second stop today was up at The Post in Cedar Pork for the Chupacabra Anniversary Party. We called out friends the Potters, but since Don was already out at a “dirt bike” event, Susan met us at The Post. As one of the club members put it this was just a relaxing time to hang out and have a free beer. Well, we had a free soda, but you get the idea. The other good news was that they didn’t serve food, which was good since we just ate at the Fish Fry. Anyway we had a pleasant time, and as we were about to head out they asked for a “photo shoot”, so you will see those at the end of the post.
Our second stop was out to Texas Mist to the Companeros MC’s 19th Anniversary Party. Lots of good people, food, and the music was great. First up was Earl Hinton, with some solo guitar and vocals. As you will see from the photos, he is a character. Next up was EBM Execution By Music. They are always entertaining. I posted a video on their Facebook page; Quite an event! Next up will be the Crossroads MC Patching party. Till then enjoy the photos (and video).
We headed out around lunch time for the Dark Horse 7th Anniversary party in Kingsland. Our GPS couldn’t find them, but we didn’t have any trouble finding the party, because we remembered where they were from last year. The process goes something like find their old digs in Granite Shoals and then drive another 10 miles and it’s on the right. We just need to get maps fixed one of these days. On arriving, there were already quite a few people there, so we gradually socialized out way through the crowd to the food table inside. All the while being told by everyone that the BBQ was really good. Well it took a while to get there, but it was definitely worth the effort. The Pork came with all the fixings, and I do mean all. The beans were wonderful as well, three kinds of salads, etc. They even had apple cobbler for dessert. We found a place to sit, and talked with friends while we ate. I would have loved to go for seconds, but I was just too full. after a while, we expressed out thanks and headed back. On the way we stopped to take pictures at the edge of the lake. We encountered some officers just coming in from working the lake boat patrol. Poor guys, must be tough work. Anyway the area where we encountered them was marked No Trespassing. I mentioned I just wanted to take pictures for a few minutes, and the seemed t think it would be ok. It was a good thing too, as Debbie found one of their personal floating devices left behind, and was able to catch them just before they drove off and return it. They were very appreciative and said they were glad they let us stay. We were too cause I think I got a couple of pretty neat pictures. After leaving the lake, we stopped at the overlook and met some new friends that were out on actual motorcycles. I had to get their picture of course. Speaking of pictures, here they are;
I heard about the anniversary party for BOOZEFIGHTERS MC Chapter 100 last night at the UCOA event planning meeting from BFMC VP Joker. Since it is happening this Saturday, which is kind of quick, I promised to pass along their flyer. So, if you aren’t already tied up Saturday evening, drop on in to the Red Shed Tavern on South Congress. All the festivities start at 7PM. Respect to BFMC !
