    Throwing this out there to see what y’all think, sometime this spring or summer a gathering of All Squares Chevy/GMC around the Square in Cooper Tx ( beautiful with a lot of room) with local vendors welcome & of course BBQ. I might know some people who could help facilitate this if their is enough interest. Wit a plus Lake Cooper has a lot to offer as well ( camping, fishing, & a swimming beach with boating) good times could be had.

    Sounds like a cool idea! I'm located in Wichita Falls. A nice summer day in Texas full of cool trucks, BBQ, and beer! :favorites13::favorites13::favorites13:

    I believe it could be the start of something that families could enjoy annually if it’s done right with the support of Square owners of all shapes and sizes ( pun intended) maybe eventually some contests & what not. Oh, I know the Mayor

    I might be. I am originally from Sulphur Springs which is only about 25-30 miles south Of Cooper Lake. Now, being in Euless, add 100 miles to that.

    Well I will start a conversation with the right people then, figure out some good dates to choose from. This is going to be our 1st of hopefully many, so y’all got any ideas throw’em out their. But the location is perfect because of the slight remoteness ( Walmart 30 min away in every direction ha ha) and easy highway on & off.

    Here's a thought. What do guys who drive cool trucks also like? Yep, T&A, preferably different than what they see all the time at home. Sorry Ladies . Maybe a Bikini Truck Wash by the local reigning Rodeo Queen and her court to benefit some local charity or club! :cheers:

    Mayors generally go for stuff that brings outside money into their community!

    Well, the DFW area members could also have something similar IN the DFW area too.

    Anyone can do this anywhere, I just thought the Cooper Square is empty and wide open & a lake near for other activities. Again just a thought. I’ll park there & if a square pulls up, we got our 1st annual Squares on the Square. And next year another shows up & we got ourselves a Parade. Happy New Year

    Whoever kills these threads can kill this one now. It’s played out & went in the wrong direction.

    So, the suggestion is played out and in the wrong direction just because someone suggested a bikini car wash? If you wanted a dudes only event, maybe just cruise the local mall...

    No I love the bikini contest idea, bring the girls have it on the beach, fishing too. I mean to say, is to get it started we might have to stick to Square bodied trucks to even see what types of people are interested and if we could generate prizes and what not. But yes that is exactly what I eventually want. Cook offs, Bikini, brewing & fishing contests.
    SQUARES around the SQUARE at Cooper Lake, or some such. Just don’t want to plan for huge at first if little interest

    Sounds like a good idea.
