It’s that time of year again.  Football is about to start and that mean the Red River Shootout must be around the corner. This is always a great event due to the combined talents of the Central Oklahoma Vintage Triumph Register (COVTR) and the Red River Triumph Club (RRTC). This year’s Shootout is hosted by the RRTC with Jim and I responsible for putting the event together. The location is the quiet North Texas area between Gainesville and Muenster. The dates are the weekend of 19, 20 and 21 October.

The host hotel is the Comfort Inn at the northwest corner of the intersection of I-35 and US-82, easily reached from both OKC and DFW.

As usual we will have Friday night dinner at member’s choice locations around the Gainesville hotel with a full slate of events on Saturday.  Starting in the morning, there will be some arranged tours including Ron Huddleston’s machine shop and various other choices we’re working one.  Originally, we were to tour the Bob Smith Restoration shop but he stopped doing tours due to someone taking unauthorized pictures of his client’s cars. So Jim and I are scrambling to find other places to do that morning.

Lunch will be at the Pavilion in Muenster Park. For those with GPS, that’s 100 Maple Street. Lunch will be at 11:30am. About 1pm the rally will start from the Pavilion and end up back at the hotel in Gainesville in time to clean up and return to Muenster for dinner.

Dinner will be at Rohmer’s in Muenster about 6:30pm with rally results to be presented after. Rohmer’s restaurant was started by Emil Rohmer in 1953.  The family is still in business over 60 years later serving many of the same dishes and families.
