We met at the old Albertsons just south of I-20 on 377
Doug held the driver's Meeting before loading up
We departed at 9:35 heading south then west on a back road
our route took us only 2.1 miles down 377 (5 stop lights) to turn on our first back road. Unfortunately, there was also a "Ride for the Heros" cyclist ride down that same road - would have been nice to know :(
We "shared the road" with the cyclist and finally came to 171 where they went north and we went south :)
Meanwhile in Granbury
Brazos River Corvette Club was meeting up in Granbury to head over to the location we were meeting them
They then headed over to the meet point
Connecting with Brazos River Corvette Club
We pulled into the meeting point about 10:35 where 10 Vettes from BRCC and one of our members were waiting.
On down the highway
After visiting with BRCC members for a bit, plus allowing cruisers time for a pit stop, we headed on out towards RCL.
People were pulling over on the side of the road to watch and take photos
Arrival at Rough Creek Lodge
We arrived at the gate around 11:40 where we were greeted by a RCL guide; they had both ends of the 2.4 mile private road blocked for our Corvette Caravan of 38 Vettes. Jose and the staff at RCL did a great job taking care of us.
They had special parking area (wasn't big enough) prepared for us; with guides to help get them parked. Once parked, we strolled to the lodge entrance.
Inside the Lodge
They had tables setup with tea, water and place settings for the number of folks we had called ahead to provide.
The food line was opened and folks helped their own plates at the buffet MENU
As most were finishing lunch, John Armes (CTV President) spoke a few words about today's event and the fact that this was a cruise Mike Lanzara had been working with Doug on for several months, prior to his passing
John Bratta (BRCC President) also shared some nice words about Mike and his love for Cars and people having fun
