The Houston metro area is growing like crazy and the county to the north (Montgomery) is the fastest growing county in the United States.
Because of that, getting to and from Houston from here is becoming a bit obscene in the evenings when the Space City T folks hold their meetings.
Add to that, the fact that thee are quite a few active Model T'ers on the far north side, I'm wondering if there'd be interest in forming a chapter in Montgomery County. I'll quality that by saying that I'm not really the sort that enjoys the tedious stuff that goes along with clubs, but I do like having a local group to wrench on cars with and run down the back roads with.
And, the reality is starting to become that Houston is really no longer "local" to the counties to the north...not when it's often a 1 or even 2 hour drive to get there.
I can relate to that. I'm in a couple of the Kansas clubs but it's a 2½ to 3 hour drive to meetings, so I don't get to many meetings. Unfortunately I doubt there are enough interested people for another club down here.
Don, including you and me I have the names of at least 8 other T owners that live nearby and I have contact info on all of them. Let's make it happen. I think that would be at least 15 Model Ts in the group.
Don isn't there a Club around the Bryan College Station area?
But that may be to far.
I'll be in touch John Mays. I know we can meet for free at the library. They have a couple meeting rooms available to the general public.
John K....yes, there's a club in the Bryan area, but that's a good hour or two to get there from here.
So, it'd be the same issue.
I'm just thinking that folks are more likely to attend meetings if they're really close. They're also more likely to get together for the things that, IMHO, are the real reason for being in a Model T club...driving the cars and helping each other with cars.
And, like John M mentioned above, there's a pretty good sized Model T contingent in this immediate area.
Don here in the central Texas where I live the closest club is in Dallas or Bryan. Both would be a 1 1/2 - 2 hr drive depending on traffic. There was one here years ago but died for lack of interest.
FYI: The Texas Touring Ts, in Bryan/College Station disbanded after their last meeting.
