Very nice pictures, can't wait to see the rest of them.

Looks like I am the first Houstonite home today! Up early due to the helicopter circling over the 10k run right outside my window, so I was off, while the others were still sleeping it off :rotf: with another cobra driver who had to go to work this afternoon :( Once again, another fun and memorable Austin cruise!! Food was good, sunset was perfect, the street meet there puts any of ours here in h-town to shame and not a single cop spotted anywhere :) 6th Street was as fun as ever, only a slight headache since I have finally learned to now take advil before going to sleep :eek: Thanks to those who organized another great Austin cruise :thumbsup:

SPECTACULAR!!!

What an awesome spectacle!!!

I am so glad to see such a great turn out!!!

The weather couldn't have been more perfect, and the scenery in those shots... just breath taking.

"Y'all"(<---a little Texas lingo there) really represented the club well!!!

I'm sorry I could not come, but will definitely try to make next year's event.

Looking forward to living the event vicariously through more photos as they get posted up!

Looks like "you guys"(<---a little New York speak) had a blast!!!!

I'm proud to be a member of SCMC :thumbsup:

Nice job... or PROPS(forum speak) to the organisers... WOW... just WOW!!!

Jimmy :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone for another AWESOME cruise!!!!! :thumbsup: :bounce:

We had a record turnout of 38-40something cars at different points. It was great to see everyone again, and it was sad that some that had attended previously could not make it this time. We got alot of ideas for the next one, especially now that we know how the cruise dynamic changes with that many car. Thanks a bunch to AustinSVT folks for helping make this a memorable experience.

There is a ton of pics and video to sort through :D

What a fun trip...thanks to all of the organizers who made the trip a success! Great to meet everyone from the other cities, another fellow R owner...and the view from the Oasis was pretty pretty. All of the Cobras looked great!

Fun to see the crew in "rare form" at The Dizzy Rooster. Everyone had fun letting their gears unwind. Let's do it again!

Here are a few pictures: http://www.kodakgallery.com/BrowsePhotos.jsp?UV=8040456185_924908952205&collid=112296952205&sourceid=64377074603#

What a great time Jocelyn and I had. It was fun meeting everyone in the club and driving the hills and twisties was awesome. It was a good thing that we did not do 6th street friday night :drunk:because I might have pulled an Erin :barf: on saturday while driving in the hills. I will post my pics as soon as I get it figured out.

we did Lime Creek road (I'm pretty sure that is the name)

but we did not go all the way to marble falls, after Laga Vista, we cruised somewhere else to a Marina to try to take a group pic by the water, but we had so many more car than we expected, so it was a short lived photo session due to our just jamming up the whole marina lot, so we did another little cruise, and went to the Sonic in Laga Vista for Ice Cream, and then onto the Oasis.

Hindsight, I missed the marble falls portion, cause the long sweeping higher speed turns are fun, and we need a bigger, more planned out, photo spot :D. Now we know what to expect for the group photo, so we will improve that for next time I for sure. :thumbsup:


Andy, we missed you man, we had an Austin resident with an R come to the cruise, it was sweet seeing his and Larry's back to back. If you would have made it (and gotten joe along), that would have been a sweet site to have 4 R's :eek: maybe next go around ;)

Ken, you and Jocelyn are a blast to hang out with man :thumbsup:

This is a problem we have in Austin everytime we want to get a group photo with a large group so we are always on the look out for a good spot. Hopefully we will find one by the time the Fall Cruise rolls around. I know the wife and I still had a good time even with the shortened route! Thanks again to everyone who showed up.:thumbsup:

oh that from Rachel (i think) saying that after they got to the room, she was trying to figure out a way to order Pizza

when we were walking on the side of 6th street that had the Dizzy Robin there was a pizza joint right there. Rachel and I had talked about getting some when we left the bar, but other things happened and we had to get back to the hotel. :(

I did hear from a guy in one of my Sam classes that the Real World has a contract or something w/Dizzy Robin and they go there all the time. That's why they were there that night. :thumbsup:

We enjoyed every minute of the entire weekend...except when we realized that we had forgotten one of our suitcases at the house. Which I blame my wife directly since she is not here to defend herself :D. We will try to make at least one if not more meeting per month, kinda hard since we live one and a half hours away. As far as the island meet in May...we're all over it. Thanks again..Andrew&Diana Kennedy
