We had our TMRA2 meeting this evening at Polvos in Wells Branch. Debbie and I got there early and had dinner, and during the meeting we talked about the up-coming TMRA2 general membership meeting at Hardtails on the 28th, and we discussed the success in Washington state with the Red Light bill they just got passed that allows motorcyclists to go through a red light after waiting unsuccessfully for the light to change. They have to go through the red light safely of course.

We had our May meeting for TMRA2 at Palvos this evening. Great service, and great food. The meeting was pretty much a retrospective on the NCOM meeting this past weekend. About that, NCOM was really good, and very informative. There were lots of clubs in attendance from all over the US, and everyone got along just fine thank you.
Coming up this Saturday is our New Life Riders Bug Run at Burger University, starting at 12 noon. I hope y’all can make it.
We had our February meeting for TMRA2 tonight, and though we had light attendance as some of our members couldn’t make the meeting tonight, we did have a good time of fellowship and brainstorming about how to grow TMRA2 this year. After the meeting we got a look at Ashley’s new bike, a ’96 1400cc Suzuki Intruder. It looks real clean.
We had a really great time at the joint TMRA2 Freedom Run/Pflugerville Chili Fest event at Hanovers. Debbie and I started out up at the Wag-A-Bag on HWY 29 where we registered the Freedom Run riders. Wes and Woody came up to make sure we had it all under control. We had a relatively small but enthusiastic group of riders that headed to the next dice roll stop out at Dales Essenhaus in Walburg. After completing the ride, the drawing was done at Hanovers, and the winner of the Freedom Run was Najdi Nour. Congratulations Najdi on your new iPad mini. The TMRA2 chili entry (made by cooks Clem and Mary) even won first place in the judges portion of the chili competition. I was blown away! Pflugerville gave out a wonderful trophy as you will see in the pics. Congratulations Clem and Mary! Special thanks to Marie with assistance from Terri for running the silent auction, it turned out to be very popular. The Door Prize ticket booth was assisted by lots of people, including Ashley, Woody, Wes, OT and Robert. The people bought lots of Door Prize tickets, no doubt encouraged by the display of the antique motorcycles on loan from Steve Kline, Greg Nelson and John Heckeroth (Thanks guys), and of course the young lady in fish-net that sat on the bike all day selling tickets. At the 5pm drawing, Steve Heracleous of Liberty Hill won the 2003 Anniversary Harley Davidson Sportster. Congratulations Steve! There was also a car show, with lots of restored and custom cars, and we mustn’t forget the chili pepper eating contest. Finally, a big thank you to all of you that came out to support us. We really appreciate y’all.
