Riders Needed for Press Event Launching Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month on Thursday 27 April 2017

I’m reaching out to enlist your help again this year in publicizing information about this opportunity for Texas motorcycle riders to participate in the Texas Department of Transportation’s annual motorcycle safety awareness campaign. As you know, we were rained out last year, but we're going to try again! We would really appreciate it if you can post information about this event on your VFW Motorcycle Group of Texas Facebook page and event calendar and include in any newsletters. We're hoping for a great turnout! Here are the details:

We invite you and motorcycle riders from across the state to participate in the campaign’s statewide press conference in Austin on Thursday, April 27. Please share the Facebook event link and attached event flyer with your fellow riders and club networks. events/471262483264303/

Some new info from Lloyd (U-9 Chair) on rooms.  Ramada is booked at this point apparently, but Lloyd has worked with Sleep Inn for a smokin rate.  If we can blast this out to all the Units, Commander Lumpkin, State QM, website and FB, I think it may engender people to come when they see many are already booked.

Talked with Sleep Inn and they have a VFW rate of 69.99 a night. Please call and make reservations at 254-420-3200! Any questions let me know!!!
