On Oct. 16th the 8th Annual Weenie Motorcycle Ride was held in New Braunfels, Texas.  CZBrats from around the country, as well as Panama. came to join the fun and festivities. The mood was set Friday evening at a dinner party held at John and Vera Hanna's house in San Antonio where stories of past rides were retold. 

Saturday morning everyone met at LJ and Phyllis Christoph's house in New Braunfels for coffee, empanadas, breakfast tacos, and coffee cake. The route was laid out by John Hanna and Chris Christensen several weeks prior to the event to include many "Texas Hill Country" sites while keeping to the back roads as much as possible. The first "Pit Stop" was the Sundowner Café and Saloon at Canyon Lake.  By then we had already lost 3 riders and the gas/beer truck. After waiting  about 45 minutes we decided to continue on since the truck was bringing up the rear and would assist any rider who may have had mechanical difficulties and then would be able to catch up with the main group.  Note ... the missing group had a map of the route we were taking. We then went on to the "Devil's Backbone" and down into Wimberley and on to Blanco were the missing riders were waiting for us. As it turns out it wasn't one of the bikes that broke down, it was the truck. They had gone back to LJ's house to get his other truck and had left the map there. Anyway we were all together again and had lunch before continuing on the last leg of the ride. From Blanco we went to Luckenbach where we took another pit stop then on back to get ready for the Saturday night party.  The finale was held at the Elks Lodge in New Braunfels where the day's events were rehashed many times before closing time at 1 A.M.

Everyone that started the ride, finished.  Ted Henter made the trip on the back of Bill Weigle's bike -- although at times it seemed the other way around!

Attendees: John & Vera Hanna, Jim & Sherrie Slice, Phil & Debbie Sanders, Bill Weigle, LJ & Phyllis Christoph, Chris Christensen, Al Schonert, Pat Fallon, Larry Christoph, Ned Rose, John &  Ellen Gough, Terry Webster, Paula & Randy Ayers, George Cotton, John & Jackie Carlson, Ted Henter, Kenny Cooper, Don & Sandy Nungester,  and Dean Blazie
