Today we attended the Toy Run delivering toys to the Texas Baptists Childrens Home in Round Rock. It was a bit cooler this week that last week at the Helping Hands Home, but we still have great attendance, and lots of toys. It all starts at The Roadhouse Bar and Grill in Round Rock, and then heads over to TBCH around 1pm. We first stopped to deliver our toy to the delivery truck at the Roadhouse and take some preliminary photos, then we headed over to TBCH to capture the video of the bikes arriving. First up here, is my photos, and the video should be added shortly.
First stop Saturday was the Roadhouse for the Shayla Dame Fish Fry benefit. There were several activities Saturday, but attendance was good and the fried fish was excellent as usual. WE hung round a while, and Debbie played Bingo, then it was time to head out to our next stop the Chupacabra Anniversary Party at The Post.
We had our first COC&I meeting this year at the Roadhouse today. Attendance might have been a little light because of the weather. We had sprinkles on and off. But we had a full slate of speakers, from our usual MiniMe and Woody, to Christopher Ward who is running for Representative District 52, Mike Sweeney who is running for Congress, and last but certainly not least McKinley Melancon who is running for Judge of County Court at Law 5. This was definitely a good meeting, and Oh yes, we had a lawyer speak obout Family Law. Everyone stayed around after the meeting so we could talk and ask questions. It was great.
The second major toy run this year (for us at least) is the Toy Runners toy run that goes from the Roadhouse in Round Rock to the Texas Baptist Childrens Home just across the freeway. We had great weather this year, and so lots of bikers came out support this worthwhile event. We got a few pictures at the roadhouse, and then headed over to TBCH to capture the train of bikes coming in.
We had the UCOA Officers meeting this evening, and coincidently it was also Bike Night at the roadhouse, so we had lots of company around our meeting. No big topics to discuss in preparation for the UCOA Meeting Sunday at Texas Mist… Repeat Texas Mist !!! I just wanted to emphasize that because we don’t want anyone showing up at Bentwood dropping in on the nice Wedding Ernie is hosting this weekend. So we will divert to Texas Mist this month, who is very happy to have us back, even for just a day. Only a couple of photos this time, enjoy!
