Houston Meetup

Hello All,

I am reaching out to the Boxster owners of the Houston area. Myself and three other owners are taking a drive to Galveston, grab some food, and return. We will be meeting at Memorial Park at 10 am Saturday December 22nd. From there we will take I-10 east to 146. We will cruise through Kemah to Galveston. Grab some food and a drink(ummm non-alky yeah) on the seawall and return through the same route. Anyone interested let me know! I hope to see you there. Weather should be great!

I can meet along the way, as I am out in Kingwood it doesn't make sense to drive out to Houston and then turn back around.

Any check point near I-10 and Hwy 146 you would like to meet?

On I-10 outside the beltway, there's a Wendy's on the south side just before Sheldon. Take exit #783 on I-10E. You'll see Wendy's on the right. There's a Chevron station just after Wendy's.

Wendy's
15770 East Fwy.
Channelview, TX 77530

That's about 20 mi. from Memorial Park. Maybe meet there around 10:30-10:45am.

I hope it warms up fast, left my top down and it is still 34F

Maybe warmer in the garage I hope but may be taking the hairdryer out with me or turn the heater on high and drive like a crazy man

A Great day again

Guy's (and Gal's)

It was great to meet some of you for the first time and to see others again, it was a great top down day and a nice ride followed up with lunch at the Crab Shack!

Took a couple of shots.

You guys must of had fun!

I'd say in the very near future we'd have to meet up as fellow Texans some time, huh? Would be a blast.

Travis, thanks for the pics. That was Damon behind you.

Kenny, we Texans definitely need to get together sometime. Nov - Apr is the best time to do it. Maybe we can all meet in Austin and do a run on the 85mph toll road.
