So feel free to come out to any of the events, and say hello to the current and officers elect.   The new board will officially take over July 1st, and the current officers will help with the transition process till that date.  We ask that you support these fine guys as they bring new and fresh ideas to the club…they will really appreciate it….and I know they will do a GREAT job.

I also want to take this time to thank all of you for supporting the current board over the past year, and it is our hope that we have served you well.  We have had a fun time and hope you have too.

We have many events coming up in the next few months and hope that you are able to attend.  UNRUN 7, Lonestar 23, the Anniversary Party, Pride just to name a few.  So come on out, bring a friend, enjoy a good time with your Bear brothers.

Lonestar 23 – Join us this Memorial Day Weekend!

And now a word from our TCC liason….Peter Reid

Many of you have enjoyed the annual campout at Texas Conference of Clubs “Back to the Woods.” It’s a great weekend and one that I look forward too every year. There are other events at TCC you may like to consider. One of them takes place over Memorial Day weekend. It is called LoneStar.

This year, LoneStar # 23 will be a Carnival Themed 4 day 3 night campout. The current fee includes a campsite, food, beer, cocktail parties, games, and all of the camaraderie you can expect from a long weekend run. Of course there are accommodations available in the bunkhouse as well as spaces for trailers. The two shows put on will include a contest for Mr, MS, and Miss LoneStar. The event typically gets 100+ attendees.

Open to anyone over 21, LoneStar is put on by all member clubs across Texas including: Austin Gay Nudists, Bound by Desire, Chain of Command, TCC Independents, Cowtown Leathermen, Misfits, Discipline Corps, Heart Of Texas Bears, Houston Area Bears, LoneStar Leathermen, Dallas Motor Cycle Corps, Colt 45’s, Touch of Leather, and Trinity River Bears. Lead my your truly, the HOT Bears have been asked to make the Saturday morning breakfast.

I would love to have my fellow club members join me for the weekend. It’s a great way to kick off the summer. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to email me direct.
