(SC) Big Bend - Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties Rally 2014
« on: November 05, 2013, 01:47:30 pm »
South Central COG is pleased to announce that on the the 20th through the 22nd of March, 2014:

The 2014 Big Bend - Davis Mountains Ride the Twisties for South Central COG 2014

March 20th through March 22nd, 2014

This year the Rally will be hosted at The Maverick Inn:

www.themaverickinn.com    432-837-0628

1200 E. Holland Avenue

Alpine, TX 79830

COG rooms are only blocked out until the 21st of FEB. Please make your reservation as soon as feasible.

SC COG will have exclusive use of the Maverick Inn which will include unlimited access to the heated pool and fire pit "after hours" once we reserve all 20 rooms.  :campfire:   :beerchug: :clap:

This weekend does occur during the "spring break" window so all rooms in this region will be booked quickly as that time approaches. The COG event cutoff is the 21st of February, 2014, so please reserve your room as soon as practicable. The Maverick Inn has great amenities and people so this year we will have the "run" of the place with their great free breakfast, free WiFi, and easy walking distance to good restaurants.


This year we will have prizes and awards at the exclusive COG Dinner to be held at 7PM on Saturday the 22nd, at :

www.judysbreadandbreakfast.com/   with a multiple entree menu for $10 per person.   :celebrate:

The Big Bend and Davis Mountains regions have arguably some of the best roads and scenery for riding  :motonoises: anywhere in the SC region along with the unique geology of the Eastern most expanse of the Basins and Ranges region in the United States.

A guide and maps to the area are available to all riders at the URL below:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/iworxlm9rg89e1g/n1O_PzO70H

Please make your reservations today! The link to the Calendar and registration is below:

I'd love to do the Big Bend ride again, but I can only get one March/April ride in and Wildflower is kinda "home" for me.  Wish I could do both... AND the National, but weekends off are pretty limited for me.

It is north of Del Rio but I do not have an exact address and have never visited.

You can get directions from Ted by email:


"If you are interested in camping at Halfcow on the way to Big Bend, contact Ted Adcock at: ted@zggtr.org  for more details"

The HalfCow Luxury Inn and Suites is a broken down trailer house on a few broken down acres where Ted hosts ne'er-do-wells who drink whiskey and beer and smoke cheap cigars (except when I bring em) and where the truth has seldom been heard but discouraging, or rather disparaging, words along with a spicy bowl of deer chili are freely distributed.  Currently celebrating over two years without a wrongful death suit.  BYOB (bring your own bike/blade/blonde/bottle/bullets/buckshot/etc.)

Ah.... the memories.  :nananana:

Hey, Ya'll go EZ on the Halfcow.....
I bet ya'll thought I wuzn't watching the Forum!

Sheeeezzzz,,,  What-do-ya-want for free? Perfumed beds??  Silly "U"   ???

"""and"""" Fer yore information,,,,, I did do a LOT of work at "the Halfcow" recently.  :)

3 months ago,,,,(or mebbe 4)      I propped up the front door, put some nails in the wall fer hangin' yer clothes, mowed down 1/2 some of the cactus in the front yard Camping area, put a new blanket over the bathroom door (opening), used a gas powered blower and blew the dust off the beds,,,,, put a bug bomb in the cabin ta kill the scorpions/ticks/fleas/spiders/"etc",,,, and swept out 1 room.... 
I figure that,,,, If the Illegals haven't moved in (again),, it will be fine...   :great:

The Halfcow Ranch, Conference Center and Resort,,,, is located near the intersection of Hwy 277 and 377.
                                                                                   (North of Del Rio) Near the Town of Golden Meadow...
                                                                                    EZ to see from the Road, as it's the Only mansion in the area!!
Cost to stay there is $0.00,
but da "great" Food is extry, lie swapin' is extry, shootin' is extry, beds is extry, Moon shine is free (if'n it don't kill ya), sheets are free (b'kuz there ain't any)!
PS: DO bring muney,,,, (by popular demand) we're gonna have the mouse races again.... and the betting gets into sum big $$!!

I'll be bringin' sum Gen-U-ine Deer Chili and Jalopenia Poppers....
(Bring yer own beer/whiskey/moonshine/rum/whatever)
Rev's in charge of the Cheeeeep Ceegars. (Again)
Jim will prolly bring sum shootin' irons.... fer target practice and ta keep the neighbors away.
I'll get Fred ta bring sum burger stuff,,, (mebbee),,,,,

Gonna be fun!

Ride safe, Ted

Hi Curtis. Great to hear your gonna be there.
Hopefully I'll be there too. Had some issues lately that might prevent me going, but I think I can overcome them.

Folks,

Rooms reserved for COG at the Maverick Inn will be released this Friday 21 FEB 14.
This is in the Spring Break time frame so almost all rooms get filled in the Big Bend area.


Please make your reservations soon if you plan to join us and register with the Calendar on the COG online event page in the first post in this thread is you are attending. This will make you eligible for awards and prizes and also assist in the COG Dinner count for our restaurant host in Alpine.

I will provide maps and a highlight summary of the rides and very interesting geology of the Big Bend/Davis Mountains/Trans Pecos region.

The maps and PDF summary will be available for both download and hard copy at the rally.

GPS files for possible routes will also be made available by download.

Ride free,

Craig
