Default Hurricanes in Texas 2017

Our annual statewide Spring Meet was March 29 to April 2nd, once again in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This year we had the pleasure of having guests from Missouri: Mark and Johnna McKinnis, and Mark's parents Mike and Kem McKinnis. Mark and Mike recently completed HM2006 and boy is it beautiful. We also met Sam Reynolds (HM1076) who recently moving to San Antonio although I didn't get to see his Hurricane on Saturday. Dave Firebaugh brought his beautiful red Hurricane cobra with ghost flames and 8-stack EFI all the way from Ohio, with George Dalton from the Ohio Cobra Club trailer once again.

I didn't get pictures of Gregg Herdlitchka (HM1037), Richard Parker (HM1005), Nathan Parker (HM100?), Kurt "BigDaddyFrog Cajun Hibachi" Curole (HM1111), did I miss any other Hurricane cars in attendance?

The Hurricane Motorsports trailer was brought down by Hurricane builder-extraordinaire Jason Kruse. Great to see Jason again!

Dave's beautiful small block EFI :

This year since Russ Rittimann's HM2005 is in the paint booth, I got to bring down my build-in-progress HM2008 to display with the Hurricane trailer. It got a lot of attention and scrutiny. Thankfully, mostly positive comments

"BigDaddyFrog" Kurt Curole (HM1111) serving up some amazing fried alligator off his "Cajun Hibachi"!

Sorry this isn't a Hurricane. Its just a multi-million dollar original Shelby competition 427 Cobra - George Thompson's CSX3020!

Time to hit the road! With John Shelton (HM1038):

Lunch stop at the world-famous Salt Like BBQ in Driftwood, Texas- mmmmmm!

Dang it! While we were eating delicous BBQ the rains came. Time to bug out!

Watching the radar, we decided instead of going east where the rain was going we would go west for more adventure. The sun came back out on the road to Luckenbach. Yay!

Enjoying some liquid refreshment and fantastic music on the back stage of Luckenbach:

Heading south from Luckenbach we stopped at a friend's bar in the small town of Sisterdale:

I built and donated a one-of-a-kind custom set of "Texas Cobra Club" Cornhole board game for the silent auction during the banquet, all proceeds going to Ohio Cobra Club's cystic fibrosis charity fund. I believe the winner took them out of state. Hope they are being enjoyed!

The Usual Suspects lineup: Mark McKinnis (HM2006), Mike McKinnis (HM2006), Russ Rittimann (HM2005), John Shelton (HM1038), Bob Worley (HM2008)

Well that's it. I took less pictures this year and just enjoyed living in the moment for a change. I apologize, I know I missed a lot of names and faces. I need to take more pictures of people than cobras.

If anyone has pictures of the event to share add them to this thread please!
