The club met early in the morning at Cotton Eye'd Joe's in Clint to begin our 500 mile cruise to Boerne, Texas. Our plan was to make it in time for the Texas Corvette Association Open Car Show Meet and Greet for some refreshments, make new friends from around the country, and to get our placards for the car show.
2022 Cruise to Boerne - Day 2 The Car Show
Here are some pics of our cruise and car show at the Texas Corvette Association Open Car Show in Boerne. There were over 480 beautiful rides there and this is just a sample that begins with some of our own El Corvette Club Vettes. Serious eye-candy here in Corvette Heaven!
2022 Cruise to Boerne - Day 3 Hill Country
Day 3 we launched out on our own cruise to Hill Country and stopped at Canyon Lake; had a lunch at a nice Italian restaurant, Genaro Trattoria; stopped at “world-renowned” Buc-ee’s for pics, and it was the biggest dang beaver I have ever seen! On our way back to our hotel, we encountered San Antonio traffic, which is why we live in El Paso! We concluded our day enjoying each other’s antics and the evening festivities.
2022 Cruise to Boerne - Day 4 The Road Home
After a great cruise and weekend, reality set in as we got ready to launch out on the road home. As we were about to leave our hotel, we introduced you to Chase. A nice young man from Pennsylvania who is a big fan of Corvettes. When his mom saw all the Vettes in the parking lot, she shared her sons love for the cars. Lou invited him to meet us and to start his Z06. We gifted him a model Corvette and made him an honorary member of our club. As you saw in the video, when Chase pushed the starter and the engine roared to life, so did this young man’s smile…worth a Billion Dollars. In honor of being a club member and future driver, he was given an EPCC baseball cap. We hope that Chase will remember us warmly when he buys his first Corvette. Safe driving Chase!
As we headed west on that long, long, long ride across Texas, we stopped in Fort Stockton for lunch and to celebrate Rudy Alba’s birthday with ice cream cones! Happy Birthday, Rudy! And Happy Trails to us as we motored our way back to El Paso and made plans for our next adventures.
