12th Annual Hill Country Antique Tractor & Engine Club Bluebonnet Tractor Ride
Apr 08 2017 to Apr 08 2017
Each year the Club hosts an annual Tractor Ride. We have been hosting this event for a decade now and it has grown to be a favorite of tractor owners all over the state. Many tractor enthusiasts enjoy the day in the beautiful Texas Hill Country upon their tractor. The ride begins with registration and light morning refreshments. A “driver’s meeting” is held prior to the ride covering all of the safety rules and expectations of the participants. The tractor riders embark on a ride through some of the prettiest areas in the county and the ride begins.
The 2017 Bluebonnet Ride route will start at the Historic Cherry Mountain School House, traveling through the Hill Country on scenic back roads and stopping for lunch at the Historic Crabapple School House. After lunch, we will trek back to the Cherry Mountain School House. A “portable restroom” will be traveling along with the Tractors as our morning route is 14+ miles, rest assured a comfort stop is scheduled along our course.
Limited space is available on our “people hauler” for spouses and non-tractor riders who wish to participate in the days festivities. All riders stop for a noon meal where awards are given out for the “oldest tractor”, “oldest driver” and “farthest traveled rider”.
Each year the Club also recognizes a hard working Club member for their dedication to the Club. Riders then climb back on their tractors and travel back to the starting point with the ride culminating around 3 pm in the afternoon. Rain or shine, so come prepared for our unpredictable weather.
