Fall in as directed by 23-5 RC, and follow to San Antonio.
After presenting the Trike, and any other activities, we will reform and select best direct route back to Austin.
TBD for time and Route.

The Trike will be arriving in Beaumont TX late Saturday Afternoon.  Longhorn from Chapter 23-5 contacted me and told me that there are some members riding down from 23-5 on Saturday and will be staying at the Rodeway Inn on 11th St. 
They have blocked some rooms so if you want to stay in BeaumontSaturday Night and escort the Trike on over to San Antonio on Sunday callAnthony "Longhorn" Carden at (254) 760-2540.  He has volunteered to take point on blocking rooms for members coming in to Beaumont.  
Members that would like to participate but can not make Beaumont I recommend that everyone meet at the Rest Area at Exit 619between Luling and Sequin (Same stop we use on TX Honor Ride).  This will provide room for all chapters that are converging to get set up.  Chapter 23-3 if you would take point on setting up a staging area there it would be greatly appreciated.  I am thinking we should be rolling in there around 1400hrs.  (Google says 3:20 minutes) I figure 4 to 4.5 hours with Gas stop(s).
Sunday - Plan right now:
0900 - Meet and form up at Cowboy Harley Davidson Beaumont, TX
0930 - Kickstands up enroute to Luling
Gas stop will be determined by smallest tank
1400 - Rest stop exit 619 meet up with other chapters
1430 - KSU enroute to delivery point
Understanding that the link up point at Rest Stop could slide 30 minutes either way do to unforeseen Traffic etc.  I will leave it to Chapters to determine what time to have their members on site.  I would ask that you contact Lucky Joe if your Chapter plans on meeting there that way we will know who to expect.  While enroute from Beaumont we will keep Lucky Joe updated on our progress.
In closing I want to thank everyone that has grabbed this and ran with it, I can see us rolling down I10 with 100+ members.  I will contact the MA State Rep and get the final destination point so Lucky Joe can send a recon over to see how we are going to accommodate the number of bike I foresee participating.
More to follow as information is available, please get this out to everyone.
