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. Flyfsh_peter@yahoo.com

From the President’s Den – March 2011

Its about to heat up here in Austin….and I’m not just talking about the weather.  SXSW will celebrate its 25th Anniversary this year, and its expected to be one of the biggest ones yet.  With it there will be LOTS of people from out of town descending on downtown and the surrounding areas to enjoy what we sometimes take for granted….a vibrant city full of live music, restaurants, clubs, art, and multitude of things to experience.  That’s what I love about this city…there is ALWAYS something going on here, and there is ALWAYS something to do.

And speaking of things to do, we have an event coming up that not only helps celebrate what Austin has to offer, but helps raise money for some very worthy causes.  I’m talking about UNRUN.  This year will be our 7th year of helping keep Austin weird, and raising money for OUT Youth and the People’s Clinic at the same time.  Its sure to be a great weekend, so be sure to join us April 29 – May 1 at any of the scheduled events.  For more information go to http://heartoftexasbears.org/unrun.  Bring a friend!!!!

From the President’s Den – February 2011

WELCOME to all our newest HOT Bears….and many THANKS to all of you who continue to renew your memberships. THANK YOU!

After the recent cold weather, I for one am glad to see the return of warmer temperatures. Not only is it time to get into the garden, work around the yard and house, it’s also time to start thinking about the various runs coming up for 2011. IBR is being held in San Francisco in the next couple of days and for all of those who have not heard, this is the last one. For those of you who have attended past IBR’s over the years, I know you have many fond memories and have made many good friendships as well. LUEY weekend, hosted by the Houston Council of Clubs, is just around the corner, as well as TBRU in Dallas, Lonestar 23, and many many more. A little bit of something for everyone to be sure.

And not to be left out of all the fun, the HOT Bears will also hold its own run called UNRUN 7. This is our annual charitable fund-raising event, and is being held April 29th thru May 1st. Last year’s run was very successful, raising $2000 for local charities….all while having a great time too. This year we have many great volunteers who are helping plan the many events and activities for what we hope is our biggest and best UNRUN to date. And as a very special event….we would like to announce that BEARRACUDA will help kick off UNRUN immediately following the meet and greet on Friday!  We still have many opportunities for members who want to help out and volunteer during the weekend,…so contact any of the officers today to see how you can help out.

If runs are not your thing, remember we still have many other opportunities for you to hang out with fellow members, and make new friends. The first breakfast has been picking up since moving back to Trudy’s and the movie nights have been really fun too….as well as the many other events we host each month. And as always, we are open to new events and opportunities to hang out, so if you have suggestions we want to hear them.

We want to hear from YOU!

Email - officers@HeartOfTexasBears.org

and tell us what you think. We welcome

feedback to make this club remain drama free

and fun for all.
