NEXT EVENT: Fossil Rim Wildlife Safari and Riverhouse Grill Lunch, Glen Rose, TX, Saturday, October 14, 7:00am.

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS CLOSED.  Click to get on the wait list.

Join us for a private, guided open-air safari tour in park-provided vehicles on a drive through the wildlife park.  Along the way, you’ll learn about the animals you’re seeing and the park's programs to help preserve endangered and threatened species.  Animal food will be provided so you can feed the animals which roam free on the park.  After the safari, we will lunch at the upscale Riverhouse Grill in Glen Rose. Elegant but casual, the restaurant occupies a renovated historic home built in the early 1900s. The chef serves excellent dishes prepared with the freshest ingredients. 


a)  We have reserved 2 vehicles which have a total capacity of 30 attendees.  The first 30 to sign up and pay will be guaranteed their spots. The rest will go on a waiting list.
b)  The deadline to sign up is Friday, September 29.  This is to comply with the park's reservation requirements.  We will be committed and will need to pay for the headcount, so please make sure you will be able to attend.  We may not be able to refund you if there is no one to take your place.  On the flip-side, the club risks eating the cost of vacancies if we get less than 30.  So, sign up and join the fun!

c)  Click to contact Mark Tirschler for general event questions.
