We will fire up the grills at noon and wait for the hordes to descend. There are restrooms, vending machines, covered picnic tables, grills, plenty of parking, and a great view. Look for the BMW flags & the club banner hanging on a pavilion.
Bring your own food and drink. We will provide charcoal for the grills and condiments for your burgers, etc. Come join us for lunch and meet some folks from East Texas.
There is no rally fee, there will be door prizes, and the first 100 arrivals will receive the first-ever Texas National Picnic commemorative sticker!
In 2013 we had 24 attendees and last year we had 60+ motorcycles and over 70 attendees.
Last year riders came to the picnic from East Texas, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Killeen, & Northwest Louisiana. Hope we didn't miss anyone!
Attendees will also have an opportunity to join the East Texas BMW Motorcycle Plus Motorcycle Club. Dues are $10/year per person, $15 for family memberships. Each club member receives a ETBMW+MC sticker, suitable for your bike or for framing!
