Spring Cruise 2013

We are finalizing the first 2013 meeting/cruise for the Red River Chapter of SACC.


Please set aside Saturday May 18/Sunday May 19 for our first get together in beautiful SE Oklahoma.

Feel free to invite any solid axle you may know of, whether or not they belong to the SACC Red River Chapter or Legends.


I would appreciate your quick response as to whether or not the dates work and you intend to participate.

If there is a conflict with the date, please let me know what it is.


We have reserved the Lakeview Lodge in Beavers Bend State Park, just North of Broken Bow in the Ouachita National Forest.

It is not necessary, of course, to drive your C1, even if you have to drive a bent axle, just get yourself there.

And, again, Letís invite as many C1ís as we can.

Itís always amazing to see 15 or 20 solids in one place.


Thanks, and see you there.
