38th Annual Texas T-Party
Sept. 30 - Oct. 3, 2015
It is time to mark your calendars for the 38th Annual Texas T-Party. This year’s event will be in Uvalde, Texas. We will start the tour on Wednesday morning Sept. 30th, and will close it with the banquet on Saturday evening October 3.
The Wednesday tour will begin at 9:00am from the hotel, driving to Bracketville for a visit at Fort Clark Springs, then going to the Alamo Village, for lunch. Alamo Ville has been closed for the past five years, but we have been allowed special entrance.
Thursday will be our in-town day, where we will take pictures at Garner Field, have a short ride to the 3P Ranch, a hunter’s paradise, for lunch. Then back to town to tour the First State Bank Art Collection, Opera House, and The Garner-Briscoe Museum. The Visitors Center will be providing a sit down Mexican dinner and entertainment on the square. You will be able to walk around and take advantage of some of the shops as well.
Friday we’ll head to Camp Wood then on scenic Ranch Road 337 to Bent Rim Grill near Leakey for lunch. On the way back to Uvalde we will have a stop in Garner State Park.
Saturday we will start out riding to Leakey then RR 337 to Vanderpool for lunch at Lost Maples Winery. After lunch we will go back thru Utopia then a short stop at an antique tractor restoration shop where FFA students help restore the tractors. Back thru Sabinal to hotel. The closing banquet will be at the Uvalde Country Club.
There are very scenic roads in this area with steep hills so have your cars, especially the brakes, in top condition. We will have alternate routes on some of these roads. Ranch Roads 335, 336, & 337 are known as the ‘Three Twisted Sisters’ by motorcycle and car clubs. We will be driving on RR 337.
The Hampton Inn will be the host hotel and the Holiday Inn Express right across the street will be the over flow hotel. We will have to use both hotels to hold everyone. Rates at both hotels are $92. Mention the Texas T-Party when you call. Neither hotel allows pets but the Quality Inn does. Make your reservations now you can cancel later if you need to. This is a busy time for them so we need to fill up the rooms blocked and they will add more to it. Trailer parking will be either in a field next to the Hampton Inn or a paved parking lot at the nearby civic enter.
Tour fees will be $175 for the car & driver, passengers will be $150 and children 12 and under will be free. We will accommodate a few single day visitors—call for a daily amount—but if riding more than one day, please figure the full tour amount. We will need to know how many are attending on Wednesday’s tour to get a lunch total.
