TICKEY CREEK TOUR - Waco, TX
   
   
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

2017 Tickey Creek Tour
Waco, Texas

November 2-5, 2017

Tex what? While they refer to their food as “Tex-Mex”, the menu is made
up of a combination of flavors, with recipes and ingredients from across
New Mexico, Mexican border towns, the Rio Grande Valley, deep South
Texas, Austin and beyond. The Green Chile sauce recipe was “borrowed”
from a little hole-in-the-wall in Española, New Mexico, and the fajita
marinade is an old South Texas family recipe (used at some “infamous”
South Padre Island beach parties). Happy Hour is from 4-7 p.m., so you
can hit the Fully-Loaded Nacho Car for free!
August Dinner Night Out
When: Thursday, August 17 - 6:00 p.m.

Where: Chuy's Mexican Food
4440 Belt Line Rd, Addison, TX 75001
Hosts: Hal & Liz Wolff
There is a group at the Mt. Pleasant Regional Airport that is needing help in
as
sessing a 1920 Roadster that was donated to the museum.  There goal is
to get the car running so that it can be displayed with other items from the
era.  They are not sure when the car last ran, so for this Saturday we are
needing a small group of volunteers that can arrive at the airport around
8:30 am - be shuttled to the hangar where the car is stored and create a
short list of items needed to get the car to run, then possibly the long list of
needs to get it dependable to be displayed.  As of now we have myself,
David Harris, Nolan Refro and Sam Goforth that are making the trip.  We can
carpool - but more important I need to know how many guys we will have so
that the airport knows how many are coming.

PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP if you want to attend - Kathy Harris
