5th Annual Blanco, Texas Xmas Rally

Oh, yes, it is that time of the year again to gather up the firewood, start shopping for the ever so popular gift exchange and the best pot luck west of the Mississippi.

Dec 7th, 8th, and 9th 2007.


If you want to join us, make your reservations TODAY.


There are still plenty of sites left in the park for this weekend.

Sign up soon so as to not be left outside without a reservation.


Reservation numbers:
Austin: 512-389-8900
Blanco: 830-833-4333
or
http://www.reserveamerica.com/
under campground name enter:
BlancoState Park

Gift Exchange Rules are set in STONE - First out of the hat gets to steal last, no hiding or rewrapping the gift - it must be out in the open - children under the age of 16 will not be permitted at the exchange (unless they are the gift) - once gift exchange is over, the gift MUST be retained for at least one year (especially the children) - gift retainage rule suspended for any Viagra, cigar, or adult beverage received as a gift.

Regift of previous year’ gift is acceptable.

Present plan is a Dutch Dinner at a local restaurant on Friday after the Beer Tour (?), Pot Luck and Gift Exchange on Saturday. Blanco Open Air Market starts at 9:00 on Saturday, Santa is scheduled to dodge the Llama Crap at 10:00.

Please post with your reservation and number of sites left at the park for the weekend.

We're In !!

We reserved our spot and a spot for The Goodwins. Been waiting all year for the gift exchange (how fun is that) have my Flamingo gift all wrapped and ready.

And the potluck. I really do think it's the best potluck on either side of the Mississippi. CU all there.

White elepant gifts, Christmas in Blanco

Kay, Frank and Angela,

Glad you’re coming , the gifts are nothing expensive just various/new-ish white-elephant items. Examples are: chicken salt/pepper shaker, picture frame, commemorative toilet-roll, and duck-tape, unopened Hi Karate after-shave or anything unique. The sky’s the limit, be creative and use your imagination, just wrap it up and put your name on it.

See you in Blanco, John

So far I think the following will be present - each trailer with two occupants -


OakHill
87MH
Bambi Bandit
PeterH
MikenLora
JohnBaker
Santart
Carnegie1935
Ole81
Txstreamer
GeraldClay
Larry and Carolyn


So, I would guess about 20 or so for the tour, plus any of your "Eclectic Argosy" group who may wish to brave the cold (I know they will have plenty of antifreeze).

As for the time, I think as late as possible on Friday would be better, as there are some who will not check in until shortly before dark (after work) on Friday.

See pics here from the 4th Annual Gathering.

Any others interested in attending?

Tour Time

I'd vote for the later time on Friday (whatever that is). We don't have far to go but we're always late.
