ATTENTION! May 14th updates! Heads up...eyes front!

- +465 Drivers signed up!

- The group will NOT be stopping at Bucces in Lake Jackson. Due to our numbers we will cause more problems than we can solve. They finished 288 South all the way to our exit.

- Make sure you have your $2 cash for the toll bridge. We have a system that will get our group through in about 20 minutes. The process will be explained durring the briefing. It does not work if you don't have your $2. EZ tags do not work.

- We are changing from Salsas Mexican to Twin Peaks Webster. 20931 Gulf Freeway Webster, TX 77598. We have reserved parking and the entire restaurant. Twin Peaks will have enough staff on station to make sure we are all taken care of. I have been ensured of this.

- We will all head to Twin Peaks after we regroup at Cherry Hill. We will announce roll out from there.

If you have questions about these updates. Please post them here.

We have breached the +500 Driver marker. We are NOT taking on any more drivers. If you have not signed up for the fun run then you are on the bench until the next one.
