Whether you own a GM compact or not, GM of Houston cordially invites you to our semi-annual Galveston Cruise! Once held annually (typically in the fall) we have decided in recent years to hold it twice a year due to popular demand! With the beginning of a new decade, we thought we'd make a few changes to our cruise! This year's participants can expect to see a change in the route and a slight tweak to the events during the cruise. Instead of our usual route from Nasa Rd. 1 down I-45 South, we will start our cruise at the Bass Pro Sporting Goods Shop located off of HWY 288 and Sam Houston Tollway South--here is a map for specific directions:
Our cruise will then follow HWY 288 and through HWY 332, and make a pit stop at BUC-EE's off of HWY 332. Again, here's a map noting the pit stop:
Following the brief pit-stop, we will cruise from Freeport all along the coast and arrive at our usual final destination, Salsa's Mexican Restaurant, for some good food and great company! From there, we will have a photo-opportunity at Cherry Hill, only five minutes northeast of Salsa's, along the seawall. As oppose to ending our cruise at this moment, we thought it would be more appropriate to end our Galveston cruise with, what else, a relaxing day at the beach! So plan out a whole day to spend time we our humble team and get to know some other great teams from the Houston area!
For those of you who have never attended a GM of Houston G-town cruise, here are some links to some pics of past cruises:

Other Important Information:

Rules and Formalities:
-ABSOLUTELY NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL OF ANY KIND!!
-No revving your engine
-Observe all traffic laws when entering and exiting the parking lot (this means no test runs or racing of any kind. You will be asked to leave)
-Respect each other and vehicles
Our Galveston Cruise is the main way we interact with different teams and car clubs in the Houston area, and therefore expect to see vehicles that are non-GM at our event. It is because of this that we will strictly enforce the rule about RESPECT for other people's vehicle choice. Failure to adhere to these rules will result in the loss of your forum privileges (or you will be banned altogether) and you will no longer be invited to a GM of Houston meet. Like I said, we've never had to enforce these rules because we have an awesome group of people here who have an outstanding level of courteousness and etiquette. Bottom line, LET'S ALL HAVE FUN!!!
*Because we will be making reservations with Salsa's for this event, we ask that if you are planning on attending the cruise, please R.S.V.P by adding your name to the list of attendees, along with how many guests you plan on bringing. This thread will be posted on multiple forums, so it is important for us to have an exact count before we make our reservations.
