Event:    Bastrop Homecoming Parade
Location: Bastrop  Texas
Description: The Bastrop Homecoming parade was another of the 'summer' parades from a small town East of Austin about 20 miles.  The club decided to participate in this event however many of those commitments fell through at the last minute.  I however did manage to finish the Colson bike project in time for the event.  The jeep is still sick at this point with a flooding/float problem we can't seem to resolve.
