The South Texas Trail Ride will kick off its 54th annual trail ride to the 64th San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo on Thursday, Jan. 31.

The South Texas Trail Ride directors have dedicated this ride in memory of those trail riders that passed away in 2012. They are Shirley Masur, life member; Chris Clark, life member, past officer, and 1990 sweetheart; and trail riders George Reiter and Ray Garza.

South Texas Trail Riders Queen is Lauren Ramos of Beeville, the daughter of Larry and Sherry Ramos. Sharie Folmar of Kingsbury is this year’s sweetheart. Abby Atkinson, the daughter of Jason and Alice Atkinson of Corpus Christi, is this year’s mascot.

The group will kick off their ride Jan. 31 with registration from 2-9 p.m. at the Edcot Gin in Edroy.

The trail riders will ride out Friday at 8 a.m. and arrive in Tynan at 4 p.m.

Leading the way to San Antonio are Trail Boss Arlis Young, Assistant Trail Bosses Michael Dunn and Ray Garcia, along with Honorary Trail Boss George Camp, Wagon Boss Virgil W. Culpepper, Assistant Wagon Boss “P” Doty, Captain of the Scouts Bill Siddon, Marshal Willie Moses, Deputy Marshal Robert Cavazos, and all the scouts helping with the traffic.

The riders will travel through Beeville and Pettus, and arrive at the Karnes County Show Barn, midway between Kenedy and Karnes City, on Monday, Feb. 4.

The trail ride will leave the show barn on Fat Tuesday, to travel through Karnes City and up U.S. 181 to Falls City. The Falls City Chamber of Commerce will host a country and western dance, with music by “Cactus Country,” in the Falls City Hall at 7:30 p.m.

The trail riders will bid their byes Wednesday and travel to Poth for the lunch stop, and proceed to the Wilson County Show Barn for a wonderful supper cooked by the “Floresville Boys.” A big dance, with entertainment by Bobby Marquez, will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight. Door charge is $7 per person.

The riders will say goodbye to Floresville Thursday, Feb. 7, en route to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Posse Arena, where the awards ceremony will be held.

The trail riders will be leaving the Bexar County Sheriff’s Posse Arena Friday and travel to the end of the trail campsite.

The South Texas Trail Riders would like to thank all the law-enforcement agencies for their help, and all the towns and communities for their support for letting the riders spend the night in their community.
