TOUR OF ENID-Sponsor Derel Schrock
Greetings, fellow Plainsmen (& women),
As to what has been hinted at before, I’m offering to conduct a touristy bus tour(s) of good old Enid, visiting basically anything anyone would wish to drive by, slowly. In particular, I would expect to revisit your former homes and neighborhoods if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen them. Besides that, we’d tour the town and elsewhere that have undergone dramatic changes. Most of this will be by request, and I’ll be flexible. No charge, and food and drink are allowed on board — BYO drinks/food! The vehicle is a 14-passenger Transit-type van, and if we get more than 13 (I’m #14), we can have a second tour. That said, if we get a van-load of earlier arrivals, we could do the first tour Friday afternoon at two-ish, and be able to launch another tour Saturday afternoon at 2pm.
What I need from you is:
a, Your commitment to go on a tour
b. When (Friday at 2pm or Saturday at 2pm)
c, Submit the physical addresses you want to check out,
