Others are going to Alpine on Tuesday for a car show and BBQ (live band) with Dave Durant (The Stable Performance Cars), and then will drive down to Lajitas as a group on Wednesday.

 

I think Dave has a nicely priced block of rooms held at a local hotel in Alpine for Tuesday night.

All,

 

So much looking forward to seeing our friends and seeing new folks who will be friends!!!

 

Reine and I will be flying in Friday Sept 23 and around throughout. For those who are new, we lived in Terlingua the last 14 years and retain our Terlingua house for regular returns now that my job has taken me to Southest Sitka, Alaska.

 

I have lived in Terlingua on and off since 1985 and visited since 1979. I am the local and can answer many, perhaps most or all questions. Please feel free to email me with questions vorpl8@yahoo.com. Any board member can gladly help as well. www.terlinguapreservationsociety.com to see the board and event.

 

I am still wishing to hear from Texas Hold-em players for Thursday night - drop me an email so I know how many dealers to have. Shelby Asom Broso Tequila is top prize! Also, if you plan to make our BBQ lunch Sunday drop me a note to plan food.

 

The board will be bringing together our biggest and best event ever this year! See you soon!!

 

 

 

David

Way to go Dave Durant!

 

For all in Alpine Wednesday night, check your event schedule for the meeting time for the Thursday morning Big Bend National Park meetup and drive, includes all fees and event paid lunch. For more info catch Warren Faris.

We had a blast this morning/afternoon driving the local kids through slalom & drag! Lots of smiles & we received a "thank you" each and every time we took a passenger, without fail. It was awesome to see how many drivers gave rides ??? honestly, good times had by all! Kenny & Kim

We will try soon. Many pics on FB, but internet and connectivity down here is pretty slow for loading pics and linking them. Can say it has been one of the best events yet to date. There will be also some overhead drone video of a certain blue Cobra spinning out on the autocross taking out a finish line flag! (minor paint blemish, no harm done!)

Thank you for the opportunity. Looks like a perfect day.

 

I felt very nostalgic, looking at the familiar sites, and experiencing the unique auras again.

Thanks for sharing. Where is Ms Amy B.?

Amy was there at every function. I don't think I took any pictures with her and Alex's big purple Terlingua van which she came in with. I'm sure there are many more coming.
