Well everyone we are gearing up for the 11th annual Blanco Christmas rally. The dates for the rally are Dec 13th, 14th and 15th. This years theme for our rally is "Rockin around the Christmas tree" or should I say "the Airstream." So get your creative side thinking for this years theme!!! We will post more details as they become available. We will have a sign up sheet for those who are attending and a sheet sign up for those who wish to participate in the flamingo decorating contest. If you have not made your reservations, please call Blanco State park to grab a spot to attend the rally. The usual will apply, we the rally host, Dennis & Mary Watermann, Mike & Lora Robinson, and Ken & Deb Gordon will provide you with dinner on Friday night, desserts are welcomed by those attending the dinner. On Saturday we usually go to the open air market in the town square of Blanco, we gather for a pot luck dinner on Saturday. There is a Christmas parade in the square in the evening hours, we usually gather again after the parade for our infamous "Dirty Santa" gift exchange.

Where exactly is Blanco? We are heading South, but first a stop in Grand Rapids, Mich. the 8th, 9yh, and 10th for a vegetable conference. Sounds like fun.

This place is right next to the State Park, has RV sites and is an easy walk to the events:

We camped here last year, the owner is very nice and it actually turned out to be a great solution.

Good hearing from everyone! We are looking forward to another great Christmas non rally. Everyone please keep checking the park daily if you cannot get in now but there is always cancellations. Also there is an RV park very very near the state park. Look for the sign up sheets!

Shelly and I will be there. I guess we need to start scheming on the flamingo contest already. We are going to the vintage Airstream rally in Gonzales this weekend. It looks like fall weather will be arriving this weekend!
