Texas National Picnic in Jacksonville

This is about 150 miles to the north of Houston, but I thought I'd post it in case anyone wanted to make a weekend ride up. There is no rally fee.

The East Texas BMW Plus club is holding the first Texas National Picnic at noon on Saturday, May 18th, 2013 at Love's Lookout Visitor Center. The Visitor's Center is located on the east side of HWY 69 approximately 4.5 miles north of the intersection of HWYs 69 and 79 in Jacksonville, TX. It's marked with green signs. N32d 01' 46.03 W95d 16' 46.93 Information about Love's Lookout and about local camping is on our club website: http://etbeemers.blogspot.com/ We’ll fire up the grills at noon and wait for the hordes to descend. There are restrooms, vending machines, covered picnic tables, grills, plenty of parking, and a great view. Bring your own food and drink. We will provide charcoal for the grills. Come join us for some food and meet some folks from East Texas. There is no fee and there will be door prizes and cake. Further info: Jeff Florentine@ 936-569-8343

We now have cake, door prizes (donated by the MOA & RA), and about 30 free back issues of moto-magazines.

I wrote up a post on our club blog here:

http://etbeemers.blogspot.com/2013/0...al-picnic.html

I posted all of the pictures there. We should have a group photo posted later and I saw one member making a video, so hopefully I will have that soon. All of the picture are at our site above, but I will post the ride report here and a few pictures.

This was our first picnic/semi-rally and it was a success! We had 24 people attend on 18 bikes and one corvette. There was one Flying Brick (my K75S), one other K-bike (K1200LT), 2 Airhead R100RTs, a few Oilheads (R1100RT & R1150RTs), a few Hexheads (R1200RT, R1200R, & R1200GS), an F-bike (F800GS), & quite a few other makes (Aprilia, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, and a couple others).

We had many riders from around East Texas, at least one from Houston and several from the San Antonio MOA Club. It was a nice cookout with a lot of moto-talk and and a lot of fun visiting with friends and making some new ones. Love's Lookout was a great place to have a picnic - clean picnic areas, VERY clean restrooms, plenty of parking, and a GREAT view.

The first rider made it to the park a little after 9 a.m. and laid claim to the pavilion. Since it is a Texas State Park, you can't reserve the sites. Other riders starting filtering in by ones and twos around 10:30. Close to noon a group arrived that had ridden in from San Antonio that morning, including the National BMW MOA Chartered Club Liaison, Paul Mulhern on his R1200GS, and his wife on her F800GS. By 1 p.m. all 24 people had arrived. It was good to be able to meet folks from other areas.

We ended up with eighteen door prizes, which were generously donated by the BMW MOA & the BMW RA (we are a charter club of both organizations). With 24 people and 18 door prizes, almost everybody won something. We also had a couple cakes, more brat and sauerkraut than we could eat, and a really good time.

We are thinking that we will mark the third Saturday in May as the annual date for the Texas National Picnic. So for now, the Second Annual Texas National Picnic will be at Love's Lookout on May 17th, 2014!
