July Picnic at Bear Creek





A flag-waving breeze flowed through the pavilion to make it a comfortable summer event.  35 or so Club members and family attended the “worried” event at sometimes-flooded Bear Creek Park on July 11.  It was anything but flooded and hardy MG people enjoyed the park scene and the usual British camaraderie with a Texas flair.  Hamburgers and hotdogs were served after the humongous  wood bbq stove finally got to temperature.  Oak logs burn hot but take some time to produce the embers we needed.

A gimmick rally in the Park entertained a number of the 10 MG drivers.  A prize will be awarded at the August meeting to the First Place driver  after the “subjective” scoring is completed.

A few written responses from the rally competition:

What is longest name observed (at the War Memorials)?

Analvara Expareza Guturrez     23 letters

List animals you see:  goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, donkey, goat, goat, goat, goat, horse, horse, emu, prairie hens, covey, emu, emu, horse, ducks.

It was interesting that the Woodwards did not get past the animals on the tour because their Grandson was enthralled with the “wolves with horns”!!

Number of people who pointed at you or waved:     30      (I wonder if some were WAVED AT first, Darrell!

Thanks everyone for making it a fun summer outing.

    Looks like it was a great time. Wish I could have made it, but this is BritishV8 week. We hooked up just outside Dallas with several from Waco and Dallas, plus a friend from California to make the trek to Indianapolis. Stopped in Blythville AR for tonight. Should get into Indy around 1pm tomorrow.

    Glad you guys had a good time at Bear Creek park and that you had a good breeze. It was HOT today!
