Possible Texas Shindig?

OK, I have talked about this several times, and I have not had time to try to organize anything. Figured I needed to see what we could do about having another Texas Shindig.....

I have thought about it and I had an idea I wanted to run by everyone. Last year, we had a ride on the 3 sisters. It was an awesome area and I loved the ride, but want to try to move it around so others can be closer. We can look at doing it there again, if people want, but my idea is..........

I am planning on doing another trackday on November 7th at MotorSports Ranch in Cresson, TX. In the same area, there is supposed to be a good 110 mile run on FM-4. The trackday company, RideSmart, does parade laps around lunchtime for riders that want to ride around a track, but don't want to do a trackday.

We could have a Friday night meet and greet for people that want to come in on Friday, on Saturday people could have the option to:

do the trackday...
meet at the track by 10:30 or so and do the parade laps, then do FM-4...
just do FM-4 route
hangout at the track during the day...

The trackdays are over around 5-6, so we could then meet and greet and eat with everyone on Saturday so the people that come in on Saturday instead of Friday have a chance to participate. Maybe have a cookout somewhere Sunday for lunch, then head home.

We could also see about just doing another 3 Sisters ride, or something along those lines, if that is prefered by others.

I would welcome all feedback and would love to have another gathering.

I'll voice my opinion, even though scgstuff already knows it. I'm up for 3 sisters (they are just outside my door) or the track day, since I haven't done one. If we do the 3 sisters thing I can, pending girlfriends approval, put up a few guys at my house.

Looks like it may be just you and I at the shindig scgstuff, I think that makes the choice for me pretty obvious!

Never had any feedback from anyone but Beefsalad. Trackday is this weekend, if anyone in Texas wants to come hang out. I will be pulling into town Saturday the 7th and the trackday is actualy on the 8th now. They changed it a while back after I posted this. It is at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, Texas. It is about 30 minutes away from Ft Worth (SW). PM me if you are thinking about going and I will send my cell phone number so you can get in touch with me.

Well this is the first I've seen of this! I would have preferred the Sisters trip though. I've done my share of track days and Cresson is like a whole day trip for me to get to.

Maybe we can plan on doing something in the spring?

Sorry you didn't see it sooner. Probably getting too cold to plan it this year now, so yeah, spring will probably be good. Did you want to plan the sisters again, or look at doing something closer your way? Trying to get as much interest as possible so we get as many people there for the shindig. We are always supposed to do it bigger in Texas!

Doing something closer to here would be great but I don't think we can find anything fun to ride closer to here. Back out to the hill country would stop me from showing up.

Hill country is good for me, just outside my door. Well, 20 miles or so but still! I'd have to clear it with the roommate, but I'm pretty sure I could put up a couple of people at the house, garage and all.

What color is your 919? I was at the trackday at MSRC last weekend and I saw a red 919 riding around. Never got a chance to talk to the person. Was that you?

Sorry I didn't check this sooner. In answer to your question, not me. I did the RideSmart track day at Eagle's Canyon, and I'm on a black 06.
