We got together at Bentwood for the November UCOA meeting, and as usual we had a good crowd. The primary activity this month was the distribution of the Clubs For Kids family information sheets so we can all get started preparing for the December Christmas delivery. Clubs For Kids through UCOA is helping over 50 families this year have a wonderful Christmas, and we can’t wait. It’s going to be a great Christmas.
We had our regular monthly UCOA meeting at Bentwood Texas this afternoon, with a big group of people in attendance. There were several events announced, so be sure to look at our brand new web site, courtesy of Sintax. Goto: http://austin.ucotexas.org Great job Sintax!
We also had the drawing for the Mossburg shotgun that generated donations that benefit the HOBO (Help Our Brothers Out) fund, supporting local needs in our area. It’s been good day, now I need a nap 🙂
Debbie and I went to the UCOA meeting out at the Bentwood Texas event center in Georgetown after church today. We had very good attendance, at a great location, and fortunately the rain held off as well and we have pleasant temperatures. The main focus of the meeting was about the upcoming ROT Rally, and we were strongly encouraged to keeper eyes open while riding, to watch out for all those RVs with bikes on trailers trying to get to the rally. As someone once said, it’s going to be hot, it’s going to be crazy out there on the roads, so keep your head on a swivel and drink lots of water. Definitely a good recommendation.
We had our second UCOA meeting at Ernie’s on the Lake, and with the cool weather I thought attendance might be down some, but we had a good crowd. Debbie and i got there early to have lunch, and it seems I am starting to make a habit of having Ernie’s burgers, cause they are quite good. The agenda was pretty normal, with quite a few events announced, including our New Life Rider’s Bug Run that will happen next month on the day before Easter. When I announced it I said Mothers Day, but fortunately someone remind me that Mother’s Day is in May, not April, so I was able to correctly say the day before Easter. I think I need to study my holidays better. Any way, be sure to check the calendar on the UCOA web site for al the coming events.
We had the UCOA meeting this evening, with several new events being announced. It was also especially good that ROT is over, and no one from the community was killed or severely damaged in the process. The anti-profiling protest Saturday came off without a hitch, and it was great to have some out of state visitors here in support. Of course one of the highlights of the meeting was the visit from Senator Kirk Watson in support of the cause. Be sure t check out the UCOA calendar on UCOTexas.org.
