Last Minute Camping Spots

Just talked with the park about camping at the shelters - the person I talked to said it's OK as long as the trailer fits into a "normal" parking space - I took that to mean up to 23' or so overall - parking for the tow vehicle is available at other close by areas of the park, so...if you want to come and have a "shorter" trailer - give the shelter idea a shot.

Otherwise, the River Oak campground mentioned earlier is a good choice - their phone is (830) 833-2322.

Blanco is not all that for from Pedernales, Canyon Lake, or the Guadalupe State Parks. As stated before - walkins, SOB's, and wannabees are always welcome.

Bring a gift for the exchange and a sense of humor.

If, for some reason, you have a reservation and have to cancel at the last moment, please post on this thread, as there may be some Airstreamer wanting to pick up your spot - better to sell the spot to an Aluminum Streamer rather than have an SOB luck out.

Anyone need a site at the Blanco SP???

Just learned of a cancelization...

If you would like to pick up a reserved electric-water site for the rally please PM me.

Don't forget to gather your decoration paraphernalia for the Flamingo decorating contest...standard three dimensional plastic lawn flamingoes will be distributed...you supply whatever feathers, boas, jewelery, clothing, or other enhancements you may desire....

Again, thanks to Inland RV and a large Katy area manufacturer for donating prizes...you will be surprised at the quality of the giveaways.

Yes - Friday dinner will be at 6 o'clock - this will be hot dogs and chili - nothing fancy - every one is welcome, but there will be nothing more planned for the Friday dinner - any "extras" (chips, cole slaw, dessert) will be welcome, but certainly not required. Always bring chairs and a table (if you have one) for eating.

Actually, a bit prior to dark - much easier to set up in daylight.

Immediately following the dinner.

As soon as you get set up your naked flamingo will be there to greet you.

Bring your dressed and decorated flamingo to the pot luck set up - judging will be done during dinner.

Winners of the best decorated campsites and the best Flamingos will be announced immediatly following the gift exchange.

Actually, there will be two flamingo prizes - one for participants 14 and under, and one for those presented by anyone 15 and older - proof of age will not be required for anyone over thirty.

Several prizes may be awarded for best Christmas theme decorated campsites - members of the judging team will not be eligible for any prizes.

Other prizes may be awarded.

Hello Y'all,
I would like to attend this great little get together with my family. If anyone has to cancel, please let me know. If I can't get a spot at the park, we'll just have to go to one of the alternate campgrounds. Looking forward to a great time. This will be the first event we will be attending with Abby. Can't wait!

You newbies to these events should know that some people take these decorating challenges seriously. At the Vintage rally in Conroe last year Dennis was serving up mini burgers and Root Beer Floats and had the whole 50s diner thing going. So be prepared. Also the White Elephant gift exchange usually has some very coveted gifts in the mix.

We are still a go for arrival on Friday of the event, hopefully sometime in the late afternoon. We'll bring our decorations, but I'm not sure if we'll meet Clark Grizwald standards, and I promise no trans-siberian orchestra level light shows will occur. If I haven't said it yet, my wife and I are in our 30's. We have two girls, 2 3/4 and 4 1/2, that will be joining us along with our two siberian huskies. We are looking forward to meeting everyone. The girls are especially looking forward to decorating their flamingo!

Still upset that I won't be in town for this even if just to come up for the day. Heading to San Antonio for the next 10 days starting tomorrow, and then 14 Dec-17 Jan. Anything else going on over that time period?

Steve

Steve, I was hoping that you were going to be around then too. Nov 26 is Dickens on Main in Boerne. Should be some good family fun. I'll be there with my family that night.

Last year we took a trip over to Johnson City Sat. night after dinner festivities to see the lights there and attended an out door living nativity at a local church. Will probably do so this year so anybody interested in going let us know. It's a short drive but worth it. Got back to camp for some good coffee and fire side conversations.

Also we have a huge (I mean huge) grand prize for the site with the best Christmas decorations!!!!!
Come on and join in the fun.
Below is a "standard" pink flamingo decorated circa December, 2003.



Trust me, a pathetic set of antlers held in place with electrical tape will NOT win this years contest....I suspect pink feathers, boas, sequins, rhinestones, glitter, beads, and other superfluities will be required to win a prize in 2010.

Standard pink flamingos will be provided (yours to keep and treasure). The kids will have their own flamingo to decorate and will be judged in a category separate from the adult submitals.

The judges have warned that they expect some very high standards.

A healthy dose of imagination will help all pre-purchase the required appurtenances for a winning endeavor.

Rumor has it that the judges may be swayed by attention (sucking up) and adult beverages.
