Our 25th annual TCA Car Show benefiting St. Jude’s Ranch (SJRC) was a huge success. A quick review:
- The Friday evening “meet & greet” was held at a new venue – the Cibolo Nature Center – with great food, drink and fellowship.
- 400 cars participated in Saturday’s Car Show, under cool skies with great food, vendors and music.
- The car show passed its Fiesta re-certification with flying colors
- The Sunday Hill Country Run drew 106 participants (and fabulous driving weather)
- The raffle car ticket sales and car show proceeds will collectively contribute over $90,000 to SJRC
- A huge “THANK YOU” to all who helped achieve this success
- The children at SJRC gave us beautiful hand-made thank you notes.
- May 19 – 21 – Lone Star Classic
- June 10 – Opi’s BBQ drive and dine

In addition to the TCA car show in April, we had a few other events in April and May for our members.

We had the rain day makeup for the Lester’s Car Show with many of our members attending and taking awards. See our BLOG page for the story details
Several of our members also participated in the Annual Big Bend Road Race. Waiting for input on participant names and any awards granted and will update the site as those become available.
The Corvette Coral (COTA) also took place in April and a few members won at the auction.
We had a group participate in a Drive in Dine to Fredericksburg, hosted by the Creekmores. See the details on in our blog post area.
