We had the Help Our Brother Out swap meet and benefit today up at the Pit Stop in Nolanville. We didn’t have the best weather, but we still got quite a few people out for this event. The food was a pulled pork plate, which was very good, and music was provided by a band called Tenth Leper. They certainly provided some good tunes. All in all, it was a good day. Especially after Debbie bought me an extra long sleeve shirt to help keep me warm. Oh, and on the way out, Debbie saw a Longhorn steer next door and had to take it’s picture. It was very cooperative, and stayed on it’s side of the fence.
We had the Christian Unity meeting this evening at Bill Miller’s BBQ. The food was good as usual, and we had quite a large group. I counted 25 people. I think we consumed almost half the restaurant. Mostly we talked about legislative day coming up. The COC&I meeting is on Sunday the 22nd at 1pm at Bomb Shell’s in Pflugerville. The ride to the Capital is on Monday the 23rd, meeting at Glad Tidings Church between 8am and 10am for donuts and coffee and then ride to the Capital KSU at 11am. Debbie and I are planning to be there around 9am (in the car), and then we will head to the Capital early so we can take pictures of everyone arriving.
We also talked about the HOBO (Help Our Brothers Out) swap meet on February 4th from 10am to 4pm at the Pit Stop in Nolanville, 14595 FM 439, Belton, TX (map)

My first stop today was up in Nolanville at the Pit Stop where UCOW was holding a benefit for the Families of those affected by the Waco Incident. This was my first time to visit the Pit Stop, and it’s pretty nice. They have a meeting area inside, and a large stage and performance area out back. There were lots of clubs there, and amazingly (my sarcasm) everyone was getting along fine and enjoying the music and BBQ plates. I met several new people, chatted with some old friends and just generally enjoyed the layer back atmosphere. As I was heading out, I spoke with the owner who changed me for coming out, and appreciated this was for a good cause. We spoke briefly about the apparent lack of police presence, and he said the Nolanville bikers have a good relationship with the local police. On my way out I stopped by the local police station, and in the last photo you will notice that most if not all of Nolanville’s police cars were safely tucked away at the station. I guess they were busy with more important matters.
