Charles & Joe,
Here is the latest info. The actual address is 3499 US Hwy 281, George West, TX 78022, But the location that comes up in Google maps is OFF.
The only way I had Google maps show correctly is by the intersection: U.S. 281 & County Road 306, George West, TX 78022
The Live Oak County Coliseum is at the Live Oak County Fairgrounds and the Fairground entrance is on the south bound side.
From the north: Take I-37 south to US Hwy 281 exit. Take US Hwy 281 south 11.3 miles, Fairgrounds on right.
From the south: Take I-37 north to US Hwy 59 exit. Take US Hwy 59 south to US Hwy 59 Business S to US Hwy 281 north. Take US Hwy 281 north 3.2 miles, Fairgrounds on left.
Note: Main PGRSTX group will rendezvous at truck stop at Hwy359 & IH 37 across from MacDonald’s in Mathis at 07:30 am.
We are trying to muster as many PGR members as possible. Westboro Baptist Church has "threatened" to show up and protest by most of us feel that the likelihood of them actually showing up is slim as best, but you never know

Hopefully things are finally lining up for Saturday. The funeral home is planning on bringing the body of Lt. Ray to the coliseum@ 09;00am, therefore we need to move all of our times ahead 1/2 hr.
We will only need one escort group to meet up local PD and the hearse. The hearse will exit IH 37 at the Hwy 281 exit at 08:45 and will be expecting to meet escort there. RC for escort will be Bernie Norwood aided by, Tony Maldonado, Tim Waychoff( Pat ) Jim Reaves & Eric Thomas.
I don't feel there is a need for the escort to arrive any earlier than the rest of us, depending on meet time w/ local which I'm still waiting on a return call. Will advise asap.
Tad Leslie & Jim Cornwell have stepped up to cover support duties.
NEED support vehicle to bring get flags from the American Legion as they might be needed, if available please let me know.
At the coliseum we will stand a flagline outside and down the drive. Just prior to ceremony commencing we will enter the coliseum and stand a flagline inside.
Amended meeting times:
I will KSU from the Valero at Five points across Hwy 77 from Wal-Mart NLT 07:00AM; rendezvous at truck stop at Hwy359 & IH 37 at 07:30 across from MacDonald’s in Mathis
Those wanting to travel w/Turtle: Meet him at Portland Wal-Mart at 06:30AM w/ KSU @ 06:45 W/ rendezvous in Mathis 07:30AM
