Central Texas Rally 2012

Greetings all!

Last June we held an absolutely great rally in San Marcos (Central Texas). Many folks have expressed interest in doing this again, so this is the announcement thread.

Like last year we are holding the rally at Pecan Park Campground which offers HUGE shaded areas, tubing and canoeing, an indoor swimming pool, and fishing.

Last year we held the event the first weekend in June since school had let out, and it looks that the first weekend in June would be appropriate for this year as well since the park owner has agreed to give us the group rate for that weekend. The park has a policy of no group rates during June-September since they normally book up without groups.

Early arrival or staying late is welcome. All sites are full hookups. The rates are $25 Sunday-Thursday and $28 Friday and Saturday. Normal non-group rates are $40 per night or higher. The park will hold a block of spots for us for up to 14 days prior to the event, so don't delay in making your reservation.

As usual, potluck meals and trailer tours for the willing will be planned as well as a prize give away.

The rally signup page is ready to go!!!


Enjoy pics from last year!

I just spoke again with the campground and we are ready to go.

When you call you must tell the staff you are with the Airstream Forums Rally. Jim told me to let everyone know that their office hours are 0900-1200 and 1300-1700.

I saw your comments Sid...it's all good to go amigo.

San Marcos Rally

Hi Steve!

Have been out of touch with you guys, but I retired 12/31/11 & we moved to Little Rock, AR. However we have been in Florida since mid February. The 23FB Flying Cloud serves us well !!!! Are you back in Texas & how is your project coming along?

Our Son in Law, now at Bagram AFG will be out of there on or about 4/1 with a new assignment in San Antonio. San Marcos could work into our schedule for a visit with them also. We are also planning a trip to the North Western National Parks & could finish up in Central Texas in June.

Will keep you posted.

Sam & Gloria Spearman

P. S. Will tell Vaughan HI for you

Hey Sam,

Congratulations on your retirement. I am also glad to hear that your son in law will be leaving the "Stan" soon. I am not back in Texas full-time yet, but graduation is only 54 days away. My project? Oh yeah...THAT PROJECT. That's a discussion to be held between one another or via email...not here, or you can read my blog found in my signature below.

Anyhow, glad you are well, and we hope to see you in June. Vaughn? Tell that guy to get a darn tow vehicle and do some traveling!

Steve

Amy and I hope to see you in June!

We're happy to hear that this won't interfere with your work schedule as it stands. I'm sure your kids will be up for tubing down the river again, and I'm sure Amy is looking forward to chats over coffee with Laura.

This is going to turn out to be another fantastic rally event. Unfortunately, my lovely wife was just informed that she will be TDY with her Commander for the yearly training brief, and Collin and I will be doing the boys thing. That's okay with me...we should be able to have a great time.

Last year we held the potluck on Friday, and another with leftovers on Saturday. Is anyone interested in doing two nights of potluck this time around? Another thing a group of us did last year was drive over to Lockhart, TX which is the State Capital for BBQ.

If anyone has their site number, I will update the map and post it late on once we get a few more folks. I believe I am in spot 322 (whichever one Whitsend had last year).

I am hopeful we can book these 20 spots and be grants several more before the deadline. Let's go streamin.....

Great to hear.

I am hoping that we can have a bunch more folks join us that are attending the Hill Country Easter Rally as well. We have six official signups on the rally page here on Airforums, but I just know that Sams is going to give it his all to be there. I also believe that the recent purchaser of my 56 Sovereign of the Road will be there in his 59 Tradewind, as well as several other friendly forum folk.

Anyone interested in having a theme? It seems to be all the rave in current rally events.

Steve
