Who are the judges? How does one become a judge? How much does it cost to buy off a judge?

Rich,

It takes a full bar serving free beers and pina coladas with two young bartenders, or it takes a 50's style cafe serving cokes and sliders. Either way gets you the big prizes

Yes, the Blanco rally is an executive level event. Some ladies were sighted wearing fur coats to the Friday dinner. It's a group that takes Airstreaming to a high level. Expect to see one Flamingo wearing pearls and painted toe nails.

At the local goodwill shop today I found a pink flamingo and palm tree hand soap dispenser, two pink flamingo candles, a pink flamingo handbag with pink sequins, and a set of flamingo swizzle sticks. $9.36 total. These will make excellent rally prizes whenever we get to attend another event.

From Soldiermedic....It takes a full bar serving free beers and pina coladas with two young bartenders, or it takes a 50's style cafe serving cokes and sliders. Either way gets you the big prizes

Ahhhh, yes, young Padawans, much you have learned - observe and polish - thusly you will learn the ways of the Flamingo Level Airstreamers....

May the Shine be with you.

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

Also cold hard cash works!!!!! Can't wait to see these decorated birds!!!! Sounds like a good time will be had by all.....

Wow Chris,

That is very cool. I'll be stuck in COLD missouri doing nothing but studying of that weekend. Look forward to maybe getting together again while I'm down there over Jan and Dec.

Steve

Today I had a little free time and drove up to Blanco and checked out the park. It's a nice little park that has everything you'd need. Someone has their Airstream there already. I also checked out Blanco Settlement a few miles outside town. It is a nice place as well. Hope to see you all late on the 10th or the 11th.

Lance:

Did you secure a camping spot in Blanco?

If so, please post what you did - I have had a couple of inquiries for available sites.

Dennis,
I have checked and checked the online site. I haven't found any available RV spots. There are the "shelter" spots available. I spoke with the park ranger in the office. He stated if you reserve one of the five shelters you must be one of the first three to arrive to get one of the three shelters that will accommodate a trailer. I did not make a reservation.I doubt that we'll be able to arrive before 8:00pm on Friday. We may just wait until Saturday so we can set up in the light. Hopefully we can get a spot at the park, but if not we'll be close enough and camping for the first time in our Airstream.
