Houston Diesels May Meet 

Please come join us May 22nd from 11am- 5pm at Captain Brads- Tomball, Tx. We will be having a wonderful day spending time with fellow diesel enthusiasts raising money and awareness for The Louisiana Cajun Navy. The Cajun Navy has done a tremendous amount of work through the years to not only help their state but tens if not hundreds of thousands of Houston residents during our large storm events. We feel it is time we try and repay them for the love and support they always show us, in the time of need. 

 Please bring a friend and enjoy a great day with us. Please always be respectful and NO coal rolling, light bar flashing, train horns, burn outs or any other obnoxious activities.

Houston Diesels Beach Bash 



Please join us for our 6th annual beach bash on Crystal Beach! This year we will be raising money for Mission 22. We welcome your family and friends for a great day on the beach swimming, BBQ, games, looking at awesome trucks, and a wonderful time with fellow diesel enthusiasts. While on Crystal Beach, please keep in mind the beach is considered a roadway and laws do apply. You will need to purchase a $10 beach pass (cash only) at any local store on Hwy 87. You will need a beach pass for any motor vehicle you have on the beach; this will include SXS, four wheelers, dirt bikes, golf carts etc. Golf carts are the only vehicle that can be driven on the roads. Any other SXS, four wheeler, dirt bike, etc must be trailered from your beach house or camper to the beach! There is to be no coal rolling, burn outs, donuts, light bar flashing, air horns or any other obnoxious childish acts. We should do our best at all times to respect the local residents and other patrons on the beach. Local Galveston County Sheriff's will be patrolling the beach. We will also have TXDPS Troopers watching over our event. DPS is not there to keep you out of trouble. If you break a law, they will do their job. DPS will be assisting in the security and safety of our event. Please be respectful to law enforcement, as they are there for everyone's safety. You may camp on the beach in your truck, tent, travel trailer or motor home. Camp fires are permitted as long as there is not a burn ban in effect and you clean up after your fire. Please be respectful of people camping on the beach. Also, make sure you throw your trash away or take it with you! There are no utility hook ups on the beach so you will be responsible for your own generator. There are MANY local RV camp sights on the peninsula you may rent for cheap. Obviously there are plenty of beach houses to rent that you may find through apps such as Airbnb and VRBO. There are two hotels on the peninsula that you can book as well. When coming to the beach, you will be coming down Hwy 87. If you come across the Ferry, you will take Hwy 87 to South Monkhouse, take a right on South Monkhouse and take it to the beach. Once at the beach take a right and you will see us. If you are coming from Winnie on Hwy 87 you will stay on 87 to South Monkhouse and take a left on South Monkhouse and follow that to the beach. For vendor spots or to make a donation to the raffle, please contact event host Wade Julian.
