Texas Cobra Club Spring Meet - Info


Mar 24, 2023
Howdy to all!

This year’s Texas Cobra Club Spring Meet is just around the corner and excitement is building every day. This year will be our 25th Anniversary and is shaping up to be one of our best event ever!!

However, this year, we will be experiencing a few obstacles during our event. As you are aware of, on Monday, April 8, the day after our event, central Texas, especially the Texas Hill Country will be ground-ZERO for the solar eclipse. The area is expecting thousands of tourist and (believe it or not) several counties have already issued “States-of-Emergency” (Go figure!) We were even “price-gouged” a little trying to find overnight parking lot security.

Cruising the Hill County on Friday and Saturday (April 5-6) or anywhere west of the I-35 may be tricky, congested, and aggravating at best. So, you better hit Luckenbach on Wednesday or Thursday!!

We are working to create alternative activities and routes for “East and South” of San Marcos for Friday and Saturday. (Thanks, Doug Jensen!) Hopefully, the solar eclipse folks don’t damper our fun in the least.

Also, we are planning a 25th anniversary photo shoot on Friday, April 5 at 4:30pm at a location very near the Embassy Suites. (Maps will be in your Welcome Packet) Please make arrangements to join the group photo. Hamburger cookout will begin around 6:30 after the photo shoot.

During the Saturday Night Banquet, I plan on showing a slideshow/video of all 25 years of the Texas Cobra Club. Please plan on joining us for this showing even if you are not participating in the meal. As usual, we will play a few games, have a silent auction, give away a few raffle prizes and have a great meal together.

Looking forward to seeing y’all in a few days!!

Now back to your regularly scheduled program……….

I have to turn in a meal headcount for the Saturday Night Banquet on Monday, April1st. No additional banquet tickets will be sold after Sunday, March 31.
Do we need to bring anything for the Friday burger burn? What do you need help with from the group?
The Friday cookout is put on by the Austin group. What you need to bring is a chair if you want a place to sit, money for the donation and your appetite. Some of us will need to go to Sam's during the afternoon to buy all the fixings and some folks help with the serving line set up and stocking. We have a charity group that does the cooking and they are really nice folks. If you are interested in helping out contact Ken or Steve Klestinec and we will put you to work. LOL!
