The SPINDLETOP SPIN retires after 12 successful years!  
After 12 great years, the Spindletop Spin is retiring. There are not enough words of appreciation that could effectively communicate our deep gratitude for all past riders, sponsors and volunteers. 

THANK YOU for your unwavering support of the Spindletop Spin. Because of you, the Spin has consistently generated much-needed funds to support the charitable programs and activities administered by the Jefferson County Bar Association. 

WHY RETIRE THE EVENT?

The overwhelming success and growth of the Spin over the years has led to one significant drawback – the ride has simply outgrown us to the point where it is no longer feasible for us to continue holding the event. It was a very difficult decision for the Board and one that has been researched and evaluated for the last three years. Harvey helped put it into perspective for us.  We are confident that we can no longer continue to give our programs the attention they deserve while also providing the vast resources and time required to conduct a successful and safe Spindletop Spin.  

We thoroughly enjoyed the 12 year ride!  Your support made a huge impact - check out these statistics:
