Annual Texas200 June 9 - 13, 2014

At the Board meeting about a month ago it was decided that from now on,
or until the Board changes its collective mind, every third year
(starting in 2014) will use the "Classic" Texas200 route. This is the
route we used in the first 3 years of the event, starting in Port
Mansfield and ending in Magnolia Beach. There will be some changes in
camp locations. The Camp 1 site in the Landcut from 2011 will replace
Hap's Cut, and we will be opening a discussion on whether or not you
all would rather stop at PIYC or a site around Bird Island. Paul's Mott
and Army Hole are the other two stops. The logic behind this is to keep
a bit of continuity in the event while still having some variety for
the folks who want to do this more than once. Starting in 2015 we will
be trying some new things including perhaps going further up the coast.
The payment buttons and amounts will be live starting Jan 1, 2014 so that signups can begin. Thanks for your patience!
