July Driving Event - 06-14-2011, 04:36 PM

Hi All,
At the picnic meeting last weekend, we discussed the July driving event. Since we will be on country roads and it will be hot, it came up about the probability of getting tar from the roads on our rides. I'm sure most will agree that would not be a good thing.
A possible solution, is to have the event earlier in the day, before the roads heat up.
Since the meeting is on July 9, and driving before the meeting would require getting up really early, Someone suggested we have the driving event on the next Saturday, July 16.

I figure we could meet at Bankston Ford at about 8:30, have the driver's meeting, and start the drive about 9:00.

Please post up and let me know what you think.

I should take a couple hours to run the event and we can finish at a resturant for Poker and late breakfast or early lunch.

Im in, put it together.
I know of some greasy spoons in Allen, Allen Cafe on Main street (lots of parking it may have been a dairy queen many years ago). And there is another one that opened at Mcdermmott and highway 5 (also has lots of parking).
Like I mentioned at the picnic in Mckinney there is the Sauce an italian resturant where I know the GM and the Cadillac bar, both of these are on the square, just a couple of places I thought I would throw out there...
