Twisted Fillies Winery & Luncheon Cruise


The Fillies started the cruise off from in front of Lowe's at The Rim. From there they traveled up to Medina and visited the Apple Store. Then lunch and shopping at Camp Verde General Store. After Cathy Nelson found a purse to match Bluebell (her car), they were off to Singing Hills Winery in Comfort. The Fillies attending were Cathy Nelson, Renee Read, Jean Cooper, Nancy Tribby, Cheryl Di Ianni, June Bright, Olga Andrews and Beverly Anderson. And I'm sure the rest of us Fillies are sad we didn't join the cruise.

Bandera Cowboy Mardi Gras

On Saturday, 2/23/19, 5 cars and 10 people traversed to Bandera for Mardi Gras. We started the day very early at Home Depot in Helotes. Drove straight up Highway 16 to Bandera and started the day with breakfast at Old Spanish Trail (O.S.T.) Restaurant, then spent the morning browsing the many shops, antique stores and vendors on the courthouse lawn in Bandera. At noon, the parade commenced, and what a parade it was. Floats, cowboys & horses, kids & adults in costume, a guy riding a longhorn, and everybody throwing beads. After the parade, Busbee's BBQ for lunch, then check out the rest of the vendors on 11th Street. By 3:00 p.m., we were all bushed and ready to head home. The weather was beautiful and a good time was had by all.

SAMC 2018 Christmas Party

On December 15th, 60 people gathered at the Marriott Suites SeaWorld to celebrate another year of camaraderie and friendship. We feasted on Prime Rib or Roast Duck, and I think everyone enjoyed their meal (I know I enjoyed my Roast Duck). After the meal, we held our annual White Elephant gift exchange - 47 people participated and a good time was had by all. Best of all, we had 2 representatives from Dare to Love to accept a check for $3,000 from the club, and the many many gifts and gift cards that our members brought to share with the children that Dare to Love represents. Thank you, one and all, for your generosity.

Twisted Fillies Visit to Don Strange Ranch


17 Fillies visited the Don Strange Ranch in Boerne to view all the Christmas lights and setups that were there. We had a great time driving around looking at all the different Christmas visions around the ranch. Then we went inside where there were quite a few vendors and had the pleasure of doing some shopping for our loved ones. We also had our photo taken with Santa.

Opie's BBQ/Spicewood Vineyards/Iron Wolf Ranch & Distillery


2019 started off great with a San Antonio Mustang Club sponsored cruise to Opie’s BBQ in Spicewood on Saturday, January 5th. The cruise started at 281 and 1604, straight up the 281 to 71 and over to Spicewood for a total of 75 miles. The neat thing is that we all managed to stay together and 34 cars wound up at Opie’s for a fantastic feast. As always, Opie’s had great food, which makes it our first cruise of the year for 4 years in a row. After Opie’s, several members went for tours and tastings at Spicewood Vineyards and Iron Wood Distillery. Thanks to all the SAMC, WSS, S550, STS and Greater Texas Bullitt Owners for making this such a successful cruise. It is such a popular cruise that we need to do it again this year.

Lone Star Mustang & Ford Round-Up
It was a beautiful day for people to come out and show off their cars. We had a LOT of Mustangs (of course), but we also had Thunderbirds, Raptors (Ford trucks), plus many other models that came out to support SAMC and Dare to Love. Many thanks to Alamo City Stangs, the S550's, and all the other clubs that participated and helped out. The Kid's Choice award was one of the highlights of the day we had so many kids participating. I think my Bumble Bear in the back seat of my car helped me win the Kid's Choice Award, but I'm not complaining. All in All, a great day for showing off our cars, having some cruises, and we even had the San Antonio Police Department doing VIN etching. Thanks again to all who showed up, and especially all the volunteers helping in various areas.

Alamo Heights Optimist Club Open Car Show
SAMC members came out in force for this show put on by the Optimist Club and Alamo City Stangs. And did we clean up in the awards. Bea Kalinowski, Becky Dowda and Steve Garcia won Class Awards for their cars, Cathy Nelson won Best in Class for her car, and although they brought their Corvettes out, Traci Tate and David Gunnoe also won awards for their cars. All in all, it was a great show, with lots of cars decorated for Halloween and giving out candy to all the kids that attended. Looking forward to next year's show.
