What Texas MG Register Christmas Party

When: Saturday, December 2, 2017 – 5 pm until….

Where: The Kube Place (Wayne’s Garage) 2215 Tractor Trail Lucas, TX  75002 214-236-0232 (Wayne) or 214-801-5579 (Vickie)

Cost:  $13 per person (no charge for kids 12 and under), payable either through PayPal (w.kube@verizon.net) or by check if you’d rather not use PayPal.  Please RSVP with your payment no later than Wednesday, November 29.  We need to give the final count to Rudy’s on Thursday, November 30.

We’ll have the gathering in my shop, and if the weather is good, we can also move outside to the pool area, where you can sit by the fireplace under the covered patio. 

For dinner, we’re having Rudy’s BBQ delivered (food will arrive at 6 pm).  Three meats are included: Rudy’s chopped brisket, smoked turkey breast and smoked sausage links, along with two styles of Rudy’s sauce. Three sides are included:  pinto beans, cole slaw and potato salad. Rudy’s will include bread, pickles, onions and jalapeños.  If you have your own favorite appetizer or dessert recipe, you’re welcome bring a dish to share.

It’s BYOB for wine and spirits.  We’ll provide a keg of beer from a local brewery, and bottled water, soft drinks, and coffee.

Bring your own folding chairs for sitting outside if the weather is nice, and for inside when we do the traditional TMGR gift robbery. And speaking of that, bring a wrapped gift for the robbery if you want to participate in the fun. There’s no price limit on the gift, but make it something that you’d like to receive yourself. Car related, home related, drinkable or wearable.  It’s your choice.

We’ll also be collecting toys for donating to a local children’s charity; if you want to contribute to that, bring a new, unwrapped children’s gift.

There are no hotel/motel facilities in Lucas, but there are several along US-75 in McKinney, Allen, Plano and Richardson, and along Hwy 121. See below for a partial list.  Or if you have a camper, we do have some limited space for that; just let us know in advance. Or, after the festivities, the shop floor is available for air mattresses.  My shop has a natural gas heater, and there is a bathroom with shower available in the shop.

• About a quarter mile later is another traffic light, where Stacy Road begins again.  Make a right (east) onto Stacy at the light.• Stay on Stacy Road east (it makes a hard left and then a hard right) until it ends completely this time at a stop sign at Orr Road (County Road 317).

  1. I am a new 1953 MG TD owner and am looking for a club near Salad, Texas

    • Hi Jack…your best best is to join this club…you are in the middle of a great state organization and, assuming you live near Salado (or maybe there is a “Salad” texas?) you are on the home turf for the annual Spring Gathering of the Faithful. Go to this page and download the form to join.

      Congrats on the TD and we look forward to meeting you.

  2. I don’t if any of you members are into sports car racing,but there will be a race this weekend at Eagles Canyon in Decatur.Addmission is $5.00 per day.Check the web site I enclosed.

  3. Curious to know the date set for the Fall GOF ?
    If that information is available please response..thank you
    Safety Fast!

    • I don’t believe they have set a date yet.

    • The 2017 fall GoF is October 19-22 in Granbury TX per May newsletter.
