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.
Well, we had our UCOA meeting this evening at Texas Mist, and we certainly had a good crowd. There was discussion of events, which you can see at the UCOTexas.org calendar and we got an update on the press conference about motorcycle profiling that happened yesterday at Shamrock Cycles. We also heard that Christian Unity rally/benefit at Hardtails raised an additional $4000 for the Waco Aid. The year is definitely in full swing, with activities happening every weekend.
We had the UCOA meeting this evening, and we had lots of people there. As is to be expected, there were a lot of announcements about events coming up next month, so be sure to go to the UCOA calendar at the UCOA web site; http://www.ucotexas.org/Austin.html. Of particular note is the Children’s Easter Egg Hunt that will happen the morning of the Bunny Run. It will be March 20th, starting at 10AM at Patterson Neighborhood Park, 4200 Brookview Road, Austin, 78722. After the egg hunt, the 26th Annual Bunny Run will be down the road at Texas Mist starting at noon. All the clubs are asked to support the Easter Egg Hunt by providing 1-2 dozen plastic legs filled with candy (no peanut butter anything please). Contact me for details of where to drop off the eggs if you didn’t get it at the meeting.
