Was this by chance a donated item from an RV dealer? I received one of these a long time ago myself.

Glad to see everyone had a good time. Only 2 days till I'm in TX for over 30 days!!!!!!

This was another great effort. Thanks to Dennis, Mary, Mike. Loren and the rest of the elves that put in the extra effort each year to make this a success. This year nature cooperated with excellent weather.

It is always nice to connect forum handles to real people.

My only complaint is that the time went by too fast and wish we had more time to connect more. I learned a lot of new stuff about my trailer from the pros. Thanks Dennis for hosting and all the little and the big details that happened to make it so much fun.

You really out did any of the "official" photographers that we have had in the past - hope you are ready for a permanent job!!!

If you have not yet seen the results of Jim's work check out the link to the 2010 Blanco Rally pics below:

Blanco, TX 2010 Christmas Rally - Photo Gallery=

Great job - many, many thanks.

What a great time we had - it was certainly one of the "best" Blanco rallys I can recall. Especially heartwarming for me were all of the "younger" families with kids and friends in attendance. Four of the fifteen trailers brought the two legged variety of kids along - for a total of 10 very well behaved, quite attractive, and thoroughly enjoyable youngsters.

Total attendance was 51, including the 10 younger people mentioned above.

As we were winding down and debriefing the weekend a common theme continously reoccured - what a wonderful experience it was to help the families that were there with offspring to introduce the kids to what "Airstreaming" is all about. I know that there were memories made this weekend that will stay with most all of us - especially (hopefully) with the kids that will last a lifetime.

I often worry about the demographic directions the US seems to be taking, but when I experienced all of these young families taking the time to introduce their offspring to a way of life that almost seems forgotten it DID give me hope for the future.

Great Job!

Thanks to our planners (Dennis & Mary) as well as the idea that Laura had in coming up with the decorated Flamingos. Prim and I had a great time, and Prim is happy to have her thong back!

Thanks to all that donated the prizes (Inland Andy and the folks with the coolers - sorry - didn't catch their names or handle on the forms). Someone please help correct me with their actual names and handle!

Michael and Jennifer represented Igloo for the cooler, and what a monster cooler it was! Their forum name is MJMarkhams70.

Kevin, Prim, Bandit and G, great to meet all of you and look forward to future rallys and the occasional dog walk. I hope my dogs didn't leave too much fur on Prim for Bandit to get funny about. I brushed and brushed those dogs and they still covered my trailer for head to tail in fur.

I must also mention again how EXCITED Sophia and Julia were about winning their flamingo prizes. Sophia slept with the plush bird the last two nights. Julia walks around the house with the inflatable all day long!

Roseann & I also had a WONDERFUL time!!! Dennis, Mary, Mike & Loren, thank you for a memorable experience!! We will be regulars, work schedules permitting. It was nice to meet all of you and put names with handles. The people we got to spend more time with, stay in touch. Those of you with projects, I would have like to spend more time with. Lance, Michael let me know how you rebuilds go, maybe we can share some ideas. To EVERYONE there, it was a fantastic experience and get together with the adults, the kids, and the dogs.

From our household to all of yours: Best wishes for a Mery Christmas & a prosperous Airstream filled year!!!
