Greetings TMGR folks: we are excited that the “Convoy To Killeen” is back on the road again for the Spring Gathering of the Faithful and it will be hosted at the Shilo Inn. The dates are Friday 14 May through Sunday 16 May 2021. We hope this event will get our GOF up and going again.  All event and activities and been made with social distancing in mind, so please keep that in mind .  This years event is scaled down somewhat due to COVID as well as not being able to find places that can handle our club.
