Preliminary plans include a Saturday morning ride to the Caddo Mounds state historic site 40 road miles to the East [ https://www.thc.texas.gov/historic-sites/caddo-mounds-state-historic-site ], which is rebuilding after being damaged by a tornado 3 years ago.

Avanell and I will be there. It's a pretty nice place. About 10 miles from our house.

The 1st post above has been updated with pic of the Flyer with a proposed schedule, which is also attached as a .pdf for printing.

The First Methodist Church of Grapeland has graciously offered to host a breakfast for us at 8:30 am on Saturday, October 8th, upon a donation basis.   If you have not already done so, please let Kent or I know you plan to come so we  can provide the church a reasonably accurate head count a couple weeks in advance.

We will depart from Crockett Family Resort by 8:00am to ride the 18 miles to breakfast in Grapeland.  Let's plan to take a group photo  in front of the church building before we depart for the Caddo Mounds.

The church is operating on donations only. Be free with your gifts. If they charged a  fee, they had to pay a bunch of taxes. No tax on donations. They will be ready to serve at 8;45.

The forecast for the upcoming weekend is great, with ±60° in the morning and high 80°'s in the afternoon, but, with no rain the past few weeks, it is very dry in our region, and there is a Burn Ban in effect for Houston County.
