This year’s Tickey Creek Tour will take us to Waco, Texas where we will visit the famous Magnolia
Market, Homestead Heritage Craft Village, the automotive school at Texas State Technical College,
and do some back-road touring to McGregor, Crawford and more.  I will trailer directly to the hotel on
Thursday morning because there will be a short stroll that afternoon.  The tour hotel is:

Springhill Suites by Marriott, Woodway on the southwest side of Waco.  
Address: 200 Colonnade Pkwy, Woodway, TX 76712  Phone: (254) 732-7979

With increased popularity of Waco, major brand hotel rooms can run from $140 to $200 nightly.  
Springhill Suites, is an excellent location with designated trailer parking & has blocked 15 suites

This year's Veterans Day parade will be in Downtown Dallas on Friday, November 10th, with
massing of the colors and the 11th hour (11:00 a.m.) ceremony in front of City Hall. The parade will

lunch; more details to follow. Donuts and coffee will be available while waiting with the cars. We'll
be co-sponsoring the event with the Dallas Model A Ford Club. It’s time to sign up and start
