BRENHAM OR BUST (BoB) October 6 - 8, 2017

Postby ScottR » Wed Aug 09, 2017 5:18 pm

Another gathering for the buggy family. Brenham or Bust (BoB) is a go for October 6 - 8, 2017.

The "Host" Hotel is Holiday Inn Express at 2685 Schulte Blvd., Brenham, Tx., 77833. It is newly built as of the end of May, 2017. There have been 10 rooms blocked off for "Texas Dune Buggy Owners"; 6 rooms with a king bed at $128 per night, 1 ADA room with a king bed and roll in shower for $128 per night, 3 rooms with 2 queen beds for $137 per night. There will be an antique show the entire week before we get there and they leave on Sunday, so acquiring rooms was not easy. The block prices are good until September 15, 2017, so get your room soon. (I got the ADA room for Dave and Christy)

Hi Scott,

Thanks for thinking of Christy regarding the ADA room. Really appreciate it.

Unfortunately, will will not be able to attend this year's BoB event. We will be traveling to Boston this weekend for Christy's annual amyloidosis check up. The appointments are scheduled a year out so we are not able to change our plans.

Thanks,
Dave

Dave, you are entirely welcome. I thought of y'all while booking the rooms. I wish you and Christy all the best and trust your appointment is a great success. Safe travels.


The room will now be up for grabs for who needs the ADA facilities.

I know the Round-Up is around the corner and can't wait to see everyone. See you soon.

Keep the party going at Brenham or Bust (BoB).

Just a reminder: there are only 5 rooms left of the block.

My wife and I would love to attend and will if our trip to Florida gets cancelled due to storm damage.
I think we should know something this week. I'm still chasing small problems with the new buggy so
I may drag it to Brenham. Just not sure I trust it on the highway that far yet. Not sure about the tires
either. They look good but don't know how old they are. Do most people drive
their buggies to the event or tow them?

Thanks, Tappa

Almost all of us carry them on/in trailers or tow them. Rarely does someone drive their Buggy to an event.

GREAT NEWS!!! If anyone is on the fence about joining us for BoB, they have extended our block reservation to September 22, 2017. There are 5 rooms left. Would really like to see y'all again for this inaugural event.

Tappa, just get a tow bar or trailer and bring it to BoB. The cruises are only about 60 miles on average and the camaraderie is second to none. We would love to meet you and check out your new ride.

Cyndi and I are in Branson, MO for our fall vacation. Sorry we will miss it, I really enjoy the history in that part of the state. I hope y'all have a great time and great weather!

Had a great time at Brenham or Bust. Unfortunately, Linda and I had to leave Sunday morning, but our Saturday cruise was some kind of nice: Smooth roads, beautiful country side and a break at the Independence General Store.

Back safely.

We had a blast! Thanks Scott for the wonderful cruise routes and places to stop. And, you picked a great hotel for us all to stay at.. we loved it! Super kudos to Bryan Porter. He jumped in his buggy, cruised to where he thought we might be, and met up with us briefly at the museum at Washington on the Brazos to say hello and give us a hopeful update on Anne. He hung out for a while with us looking at cool pioneer stuff, watched a movie at the museum, then headed back home to take care Anne and have a cold beer.. or something like that. Way to go Bryan!

Thank you very much, for those who came to the inaugural Brenham or Bust (BoB) 2017.

I plan on doing this again for 2018 with some minor changes. So, start making plans.

Thank you for coming.
