See you There!


Feel free to come for a quick lunch or to stay and visit till 2pm.  If you can’t make it, don’t worry as we will catch you at the next one.  Golden Corral has a “banquet” type room which can hold up to 75 people.  We won’t necessarily have the room all to ourselves, but should easily be able to sit together as they have us marked down to eat in that room.  There is plenty of parking on the sides and behind the restaurant.  If you have a “Classics” cap please wear it. If you have any questions please let me know.  I am looking forward to a good turn out and seeing you all there.  Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Please RSVP back to me, if possible, so I can give Golden Corral an good estimate of how many to expect.  Feel free to show up even if you forgot to RSVP though.  Look forward to seeing you there!

To keep informed of our activities, contact Chuck Peck at or 512-587-3006 to get on the monthly email list.

230 and 260 Paper GMCs. Thanks to Rhonda Peck for these terrific centerpieces.

November 30, 2018

Well, it looked like everyone made it through the Thanksgiving holiday okay and we had a really great turnout for the November Central Texas Lunch Bunch, with a total of 23 attendees!  We had a chance to greet old friends and make some new friends as well.  Lots of folks showed up to include: Mike & Billie Kelley, Sandra & Bob Price, Chuck & Rhonda Peck, Stephen Wilhite, Anneka & Tom Henderson, Delanie & Wayne Brady, Billy & Debbie Massey, Brian LaBorde, Robert Abney, Bert & Charlotte Austin, Janice & John Sloop, and Bob O’Farrell.  We also had new friends show up; a big “Classics” welcome to Paul Wright and Mike & Vera Hooper.  Paul already has a GMC and Mike & Vera are actively searching for a coach.  We also had two “Classic” GMC’s show up, so please give a big shout out to Bert & Charlotte and Mike & Billie for driving their coaches to the luncheon.

It looked like everyone was having a good time as there were several animated conversations going on and everyone was socializing and enjoying themselves.  As a special holiday treat, next month the December Lunch Bunch will be hosted by Sandra and Bob Price.  They have graciously offered to have it at their home, on Friday, Dec 28th, at 11am (stay tuned for more info in December, to include directions as well as other information).  Enjoy the cooler weather - it’s a good opportunity to maybe do some work on your coach that you had been putting off due to the heat!  Everyone stay safe as we want to see you at the next luncheon and, of course, the upcoming rallies.   Merry Christmas y’all and remember it’s Christmas so you don’t have to feel guilty buying something you want/need for your coach, just be sure to get something for your significant other too though!!

Special thanks again to Charlotte Austin, our official CTLB photographer!  There are 29 pictures – I’ll send them out in this email and three additional ones so hopefully everyone will receive them all.

Kind Regards,
Chuck Peck

I think we got this thing going; this was the second meeting for the Central Texas "lunch bunch." Our meeting last Friday, the 26th, was a great time and had a good turnout. The attendees included: Billy and Debbie Massey, Sandra and Bob Price, Tiago Soromenho, Bert and Charlotte Austin, Bob and Nancy O'Farrell, John Sloop and Janice Doerner, John Strauss, Michael Touhy, Tom Henderson, Carrol and Gayla Shelley and Chuck and Rhonda Peck. We even had two GMCs show up (Many thanks to Tiago Soromenho and John Stauss for bringing their coaches!!). A good time appeared to be had by all and there was lots of interesting conversations going on…all in all a great time and great to see friends we know while we make some new ones. Billy and Debbie brought an absolutely awesome GMC Motorhome Beach Towel to show everyone. Already looking forward to seeing everyone in November, (tentative date will be Friday, November 30th) so keep an eye on your email as we will be sending reminders/info in the next couple of week. We asked Charlotte Austin to be our official photographer at our lunches, and she took some great photos. I've attached part of them to this email and part to a second one, to avoid the email from getting too large. Thanks, Charlotte! Again thanks to all and thanks for your support as we meet and share a meal, good times and conversation. See you next month…be safe and enjoy your GMC!!!

The Inaugural Meeting

The inaugural meeting for the GMC Central Texas Lunch Bunch went well. We had several folks show up to include: Tiago Soromenho, Stephen Wilhite, Bud Degroot, Paul Array, John and Janice Sloop, Charlotte and Bert Austin, Delaine Brady, Brian LaBorde, Robert Abney, Anneke and Tom Henderson, Chuck and Rhonda Peck. It was also great that three GMC Motorhomes were brought also!! We had a chance to see some friends and make new ones. I think a good time was had by all. The next meeting will be on Friday, October 26, at the same location. I am thinking we will have a few more folks there as I know some Classics members were traveling. I will send out a reminder email as we get closer and if y'all have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Hoping to see y'all at the Mathis rally.




Thanks to Chuck for organizing the GMCMH Austin Lunch Bunch earlier today!
It was great to put faces to many names I had seen in various online groups!  I didn't get to talk to everyone, but I did realize how much knowledge and experience there is all around us!
If anyone took photos, please share them! I only took a couple, they are attached... : )

Also:, oOne of the goals of the meeting was to gauge interest and the knowledge and skill levels of those of use willing to put in a day or two a month helping each other out.  I certainly welcome and support that idea, and am willing to give one of my weekends every month to both help and learn from others.  If any of you that were not able to make the inaugural Lunch Bunch but are interested in that idea, please email us to let us know your interest. Chuck will send out a notice when we take a first shot at starting this.
For anyone wanting to attend the Fall GMC Classics rally in Mathis in October, we'll also be looking to coordinate driving there in a group. It's just way cool to drive in a procession of GMCMHs -- and it will generate more head-turning potential! ; )  And also in case something happens to anyone of us, there'll be more heads and hands to help out.  Let us know too if you're interested in that.
And thanks to those that brought their coaches! It was great eye-candy and total bonus!  (And to Paul for letting us drool over his amazingly restored '50? Mercury Coupe.)
