Volvo Car Club Get-together Fredericksburg Texas Saturday May 6 2017

Sponsored by the Texas Chapter Volvo Club of America (VCOA dot org) and representatives from Volvo Sports America (VSA dot org).

Pavilion 5, Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park (see maps below).

432 Lady Bird Johnson Drive, Fredericksburg TX 78624. 830-997-4202.

The Park is 3.5 miles southwest of downtown Fredericksburg on Hwy 16.

This meeting is open to all interested parties. No RSVP required.

If the granddaughter's volleyball game runs late just hop in the Volvo and hook up with us at Enchanted Rock. Bring food, drink, sunscreen and at least $7 cash.

We will be rejuvenating the Texas Chapter Volvo Club of America to include the election of a vice-president and secretary/treasurer. Chris Ng, chapter president, will preside. Each adult human attendee will have one vote. Be prepared to nominate your favorite Volvo Nut and be prepared to get elected!

Itinerary: Pavilion 5; 10am - noon. Sign-in, meet-n-greet, show-n-tell, sell-n-swap.

Noon - 1:30pm. Hill Country driving tour to Cooper's BBQ in Llano, Texas.

We will travel State Highway 16 from Lady Bird Johnson Park through downtown Fredericksburg then on to Llano on Hwy 16 north.

Traffic will be one-inch-per-minute in downtown Fredericksburg. You will have time to shoot a video as you pass all the pointers, "Hey, what kind of car is that?!" We hope to view your video on U-toob.

Texas weather for the first week of May can be 27F or 109F - be prepared.

1:30pm - 3pm. Get your grease at Cooper's (menu)…

Note: If you have done Cooper's too much try Laird's BBQ on Hwy 16 (Ford Street) at Lampasas Street just south of downtown Llano.

3pm - O-dark 30. Second-gear blast to Enchanted Rock State Park.

Check your brake fluid before departing Cooper's. Observe all laws.

From Cooper's we will drive east six block to Hwy 16, south on 16 15.5 miles to FM (Ranch Road) 965, southwest on 965 24 miles to the entrance for Enchanted Rock State Park (no pets allowed on the rock).

Entry fee ($7) required at Enchanted Rock…

NOTE: Enchanted Rock State Park may be abruptly closed when park personnel determine that the facilities are becoming overcrowded.

If on arrival we find the park closed we will continue south on Ranch Road 965 seventeen (17) miles to US Hwy 290 in Fredericksburg then east on 290 sixteen (16) miles to State Park Road 52 and the entrance to LBJ state park in Stonewall.

This is a day-use park open to the public with a giahugic parking area. The facilities include a tour of an historic farm, public swimming pool and, across the Pedernales River, the LBJ historic home complete with a 6,500 feet runway for your drag racing pleasure. Not!

By this time most folks are ready to head for home.

Drive carefully and thanks, again, for making this get-together yet another great success in the lives of all us Volvo Lovers!

Thanks George.

That should give me enough time to correct the rest of the coolant leaks in my 960.
