2013 LSSRA State Rod Run in Fredericksburg, TX.

The Gear Grinders once again volunteered to serve the coffee and doughnuts for the State Rod Run on Saturday, May 18th in Fredericksburg, TX. We all gathered at the designated spot at about 6:00 AM, which meant that some of us had to get up at 2:30 AM to be able to be there on time.

We would like to give a big THANKS to the following people for donating their time for this undertaking. A very special thanks to Doug and Carlene Seiler and Delton Scholwinski for bringing all the supplies required. We sure couldn't have done it without them. Other members there were Rick McDonnell, Wayne Malone, Eddie & Sunny Zipp, Don Thompson, Roger Sullian, Clarence Oliver, Ron & Lita Delcourt, Jimmy Crews and Mike Krisak.

We had alot of heavy winds that almost blew our tents away there for awhile, but all in all it turned out well. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the fact that we were there, and I'm pretty sure that everyone got their fill because we had plenty of doughnuts left at the end of the shift.

A big thank you to Andrew, Doug's grandson, for all his work. He was our water runner for the coffee, among other things. He was a big help!

2013 New Braunfels Swap Meet

We were lucky to have Chamber of Commerce weather (except for the wind on Friday). Beautiful week-end, great turn out of buyers and sellers. Think most of our members bought more than they sold, but we got rid of most of the great "junk" that we brought, so all in all in was a good time had by all.

Special thanks to Doug & Carlene Seiler for bringing the vittles for Saturday. They always come through !!!

2012 Club Picnic

We had our annual club picnic at Wayne & Huey Malone's place. A great big thank you to them for opening up their home to us. The weather was perfect and the location absolutely wonderful. Thanks to Doug and Carlene Seiler for ordering and picking up the food. They're always there when there's something that needs to be done.
