Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch is set for the second Thursday of the month. The next date is August 12th at 11:30am, and the location is the ever-popular Quality Seafood! 

For those of you who may be new to Austin, Quality Seafood is a foodie institution, with terrific seafood and great commaraderie with fellow members. If seafood isn’t your thing, don’t fret….they have chicken dishes, too.

Bob will have our usual private room, and due to staffing shortage that most businesses are facing these days, you will order at the counter on your way in (just like the regular customers). No pre-registration or RSVP required.


Event details are at the HCR Calendar.


Bob is always glad to hear that you are planning on coming or if you will be bringing a large group. Bob can be reached at:

Looking Back

Here’s a reminder that the Bruce Canepa DSS interview is now out on our HCR YouTube channel. The correct name for our channel is “Hill Country Region PCA”. Just search on YouTube using those terms and it will pop up with the Bruce Canepa and Magnus Walker interviews.



Our objective continues to be to keep our membership up to date on what is going on in HCR, as well as PCA nationally. Please remember, our goal is to deliver events that allow you to participate safely, and to ensure you have fun!  


If any questions or comments, please let me know.
