March 27th, CHANGE OF PLANS: Hello, Well as luck would have it our event planned at the Renown Restoration Facility this Saturday has been cancelled. The owner/leadership team is out of town. We will work on re-scheduling in the future. So, what to do about this Saturday and our 4th Saturday of the month meeting date? Here is the new plan, if you are interested.

As we just entered the Spring season, it is time to think about getting our Thunderbirds cleaned up, ready for the Car Show Season and driving onto the Car Show fields. Well just in time, this Saturday we all have the opportunity to participate in one of the best organized Car Shows in town. If you are interested in participating and joining other STTC members for some socializing, music, food, 50/50 raffle and fresh air enjoyment, join us Saturday at the Alzafar Motor Club Car Show. NOTE: See Email from Brian for Alzafar application Form. Local and County rules regarding Masks and Social Distancing requirements still apply.

Address of the show is: 901 N. Loop 1604W, San Antonio, Texas. Time: 8am-4pm. There is a Thunderbird Class. Fee is $30.00. Also, if you would prefer to just show up as a spectator and walk around to see the cars, the event is free.

Let me know if you are able to attend and we will figure out a meeting location so we can all drive onto the show field together and park as a group. Look forward to seeing you. Brian, President, South Texas Thunderbird Club, 210-882-6857
