August-September Events


We begin August with another summer cruise-in, this one to The Dream Hut in Bartonville.  It starts at 6pm on Saturday, August 3rd.  When it’s over, you should (shameless plug here) rush home, turn on your TV and watch the St. Jude Telethon, and give a few bucks if you can.  It’s on until midnight, and you should definitely watch THE ENTIRE THING.  Or fall asleep trying.

The 2019 Big Trip to Estes Park, Colorado starts that day as well.  If you want to make some last minute plans to go with the group, better announce your intentions now in the forum.  The trip lasts the entire week, returning the weekend of 8/10.  August 10th also has a tentative placeholder for something called the “Not So Far To Travel Trip”.  I don’t think we’ve made any specific plans for that.  If you’re interested in going on a day or weekend wheeling trip, post your idea in the forum and gauge interest.

Saturday, August 24th is our annual Picnic & Hog Eat at the Stearnes residence.  More concrete plans are forthcoming, but plan on bringing a dish to share.  We usually start the festivities in the late afternoon.  There will be swimming and games; very family-friendly.

At the end of the month and into September, Labor Day weekend will be a trip to Land Between The Lakes in Kentucky.  Watch the forum for travel plans, as usual.

In September, we have our final cruise-in for the summer on Saturday, September 7th at 6pm.  This one will be at Cranwill’s in Pekin.  EDIT: location changed to Abingdon.  See this post for details.  Saturday 9/21 we’ve got a trip to Moonlight Racing in Sullivan, Missouri.  Peeking into October, our regular meeting is replaced with a weenie roast at Jill & Jon’s house on Saturday, October 5th.

All these events and more can be viewed in calendar form on the Schedule page.  Always check the forum before showing up anywhere in case of rescheduling or outright cancellation.
