Trail Riders, new & old - we are in need of your help!!!

If you can write your name, help in a serving line, have a good clean

driving record to assist in driving our rolling stock, wash a cup or plate

or take out the trash - please call any one of these Committee Chairpersons.

Even if it is only a couple of times that you can help, every little bit helps. 

It takes everyone in STTR to get this ride down the road.  

Thanking you in advance for donating your time,

talents and treasures to STTR.

"Keeping The Cowboy Tradition Alive" 


The meaning behind the Frank Hoch Award is for ALL the time, energy & devotion that Frank gave to the South Texas Trail Riders.  He was Vice President for George Camp in 1972 & 1973 and he was President in 1974 & 1975.  In 1974 it was the largest membership EVER for the South Texas Trail Riders at 1,578 when Frank was President.  A recipient of the Frank Hoch Award is someone who has dedicated decades to STTR and devoted their time, energy, talents and devotion to the club.
