4th Annual Hill Country 100 & Classic Car Show  2009

The Baron's Motor Club from San Antonio once again hosted their annual Hill Country 100 event.  The main event is held at the River Star Arts & Events Park in Kerrville, a beautiful tree filled park with rolling grassy hills, shaded pavilion, and across the road from a nice river view.  On Saturday, September 26th at about 8:00 am several participants began meeting to join up and be part of the 100 mile reliability run that is part of the event.  The run is a "follow the leader" type road cruise that takes the group through some of the most beautiful and scenic back roads in the Texas hill country.  The group makes several stops throughout the run at places like Stonehenge of Texas as well as a unique motorcycle museum containing some of the world's rarest and most sought after early motorcycles.  The run itself is great and is an event in itself but, back at the park other participants gather and park their vehicles on the rolling grass hills to display their cars and and enjoy the live bands playing.  When the road rally participants return to the park, the games begin.  Games such as the blindfolded death race, valve cover races, and tug bucket.  The blindfolded death race is an event which participants get into their cars with a co-pilot.  The driver is blindfolded and relies on instructions given from the co-pilot to direct them through a charted out obstacle course.  Valve cover races are similar to pinewood derby races.  Participants make vehicles using old valve covers and much imagination and then are paired up and run down a gravity fed drag track.  Tug bucket, well is sort of a play on tug-o-war with two participants standing on top of plastic buckets with a length of rope and the object is to either pull the other off their bucket or pull the rope from their hands.  Participants to the event are given goodie bags, dash plaques, and are eligible to win one of the cool, highly coveted, handmade trophies as well.  Great times were had by all.  This event is family oriented and is great to see the number of participants and supporters from most of the attendees.  The event is open to vehicles that are from 1964 or older and generally attracts those of the more "traditional" persuasion.  This event is quickly becoming a full weekend event with activities on Friday evening, Saturday evening, and early Sunday as well.  I could go on and on about this event, but you will just have to check it out for yourself.  You can find more details at www.caferacerproduction.com The Baron's put together a great event and we look forward to this one year after year.  Be sure to mark your calendars and make plans to attend this one in the future.
