12 Kings Car Club
September 18, 2019
Well it’s the time of year that we have a wide variety of possible events to attend! Finally the heat has broken, and we can look forward to cooler days going forward!
Our main September event was a lot of fun – the Cruise last Saturday and participation in the Luckenrod Classic Car Show in Luckenbach. There were close to 300 cars registered and the 12 Kings caravanned with 9 cars that entered. For those that were unable to make it, we left at 0730 from our gathering spot west of Wimberley and very much enjoyed the beautiful morning and the Texas Hill Country scenery as we cruised to the show. We were able to park as a group under the shade of the large oak trees and with the light breeze it was downright comfortable until about 3:00! Several members were recognized for their cars and we had Willis Ragsdale with our group which was a pleasure. Lots of lies swapped under the trees and altogether a pleasant experience.
A discussion was held at our August monthly meeting about ideas for future Ride’s to Eat. It was agreed that the next one would be October 11 at Brookshire Brothers Store and Restaurant in Canyon Lake. This event is the Canyon Lake Hot Rod and Classic Car cruise-in held monthly on the 2nd Friday of the month at Brookshire Brothers grocery store, 18209 FM 306, Canyon Lake TX. The Classic Car cruise-in coincides with Steak Night and Live music on the Patio. A gift certificate from the store is drawn at 7:30p for all cruise-in participants.
How does gathering at 5:30 or 6:00pm Friday, October 11 sound to everyone? We could rendezvous at the Wimberley City Hall parking area, take RR12 to RR32, right on RR32 over the Backbone, then go to RR3424 (turn just before the High School there) and turn right. That dead-ends into RR306 where we would turn left, and go about a mile to get to Brookshire Brothers on the right side of the road. (Other ideas for route options can be discussed.) Four members, including myself (Jay) will still be at Cruisin’ the coast and won’t be able to participate so let’s decide on a coordinator for any last minute changes, etc.
Doug Webb (57 Chevy) has suggest we take a cruise via Fischer Store Road to River Road (along the Guadalupe river) and stop for a cold beer at Bubbas Big Deck. Let’s discuss a time for this, maybe late morning on a Saturday, or a Sunday afternoon in late October, early November?
John Tyndall gave a promo on the benefits of the Key to the Hills Rod Run to be held Oct 11,12 & 13. He suggested it would be a good event to attend as a Club. Let’s discuss this possibility as well at our September 18 meeting.
The 12 Kings Club will be providing support for the upcoming Rolling Sculpture Car Show at the Hill Country Galleria on Oct 27, 2019. Basic support will be in the form organizing and performing the car judging for the show. More specific details will be forthcoming at the Sept. 18 meeting.
The Deuce Reunion show is coming up September 20 and 21 in Bulverde, as well as the Goodguys Lone Star Nationals September 27, 28 & 29 in the Fort Worth area.
And let’s set a date in early November for getting together at the Drive In Movies (New Braunfels area).
Lot’s to discuss and participate in! Let’s kick all this around Wednesday, September 18th at the 12 Kings Monthly meeting!
NOTE - It was decided at our meeting last night not to go to the Canyon Lake Hot Rod and Classic Car cruise-in for October since so many of our regular cruisers will be gone. Instead we plan to go to the Alamo Falls Cafe on the 19th. We will do the Canyon Lake run in November. More info to come.
