Howdy from Southeast Texas...
I have been (and am quite humbled) to organize and plan a ride (actually 2 rides) for the Oldest Town in Texas Rally coming up in September.
In Association with the Oldest Town in Texas Rally (OTT) "http://ottrally.com/" and Missy Covill "The Iron Cowgirl " http://www.ironcowgirlmissy.com/" we are having, actually 2 rides, to raise awareness, education and funds for OVARIAN CANCER.
The Rally dates are September 15-18 (thursday through Sunday) The First of the 2 rides will be to "escort" Missy and The Iron Cowgirl (the band) into Texas, from Hot Springs, Arkansas, Thursday morning September 15th into Nacogdoches, Texas. We will be flying TEAL (ribbons and t-shirts) for Ovarian Cancer. I will update this post with the exact route soon, as I will be making a "test run" Memorial weekend. I will have several locations noted along the route where you can join us.
A few more things, Missy rides! The band follows in the bus and she will be riding with us on both rides. Check out her original music on her website. The lady rocks! She has and is again playing the Buffallo Chip at Sturgis. She will be rocking the OTT Rally Friday night this year, her only Texas booking this year.
The Second ride will be a "Fun Run" Friday morning from the Rally in and around Nacogdoches through the East Texas "Piney Woods", most likely a 2 ro 3 hour ride. Again, we will be "Riding for Teal".
While there is no cost (other than your Rally Ticket) to join us for eaither ride donations are appreciated. The Ladies of We Fight Like A Girl ("http://www.wefightlikeagirl.com/mission.html") are putting together "swag" for all participants and will have a Vendor Booth at the Rally to sell t-shirts, koozies, etc. to raise more money.
Check out the Websites listed above, mark you calendars, ask the boss off, whatever you have to do and come help us Welcome Missy to Texas in style, and help us raise some funds for a good cause.
Again, more specific information coming shortly as details are finalized
