Thanks Again to our rally hosts for GREAT time. The smaller number of people made for a more cozy rally. It was great to see all of our old friends again and to meet some new ones which I have looked forward to for a long time. To all of the cooks-Great Groceries!!! To Everyone-Merry Christmas and wishes for a prosperous new year! Safe travels, everyone, I hope you made it home without incident. Roseann and I will see you next year, if not before.

Thanks to you and Roseanne! You absolutely blew the judges away with your flamingo! Fabulous job I do believe that you raised the bar very very high!!

A BIG thanks to our organizers and founders of this event. It's always a great time at Blanco! I always feel like there isn't enough time to hang out and meet a some of the new people, and this year was no exception. Robin (Melody Ranch), you took off this morning before I could get your change back to you.

I must say the the one thing that I wanted to do was catch a trout, but the warm weather, while a blessing for a campout, was a curse for catching fish. Oh well, they stock the river every so often. It will be a good excuse to sneak away to Blanco SP for a day of fishing.

If anyone is missing an Igloo brand folding table that was left at Dennis and Mary's site, I have it with me.

What a great time!! A couple pics of the first prize Flamingo in the flamingo decorating contest, and the proud winner, Bruce (sorry about the campfire smoke)
I think he cheated...

Oh...I should mention the theme. "Grandma got run over by an Airstream." So if I heard the rules right, Bruce keeps it till next year, his name will be engraved on it, and it will be passed on to the next grand prize winner. The Stanley Cup has nothing on us!!

Thank you to the Hosts

Thank you to the hosts for a truly wonderful weekend, for the great meal that you provided Friday night and for all the hard work and planning that you put into delivering this event ... allowing the rest of us the opportunity to leave the "daily grind" behind for a festive weekend. It was a great time! Photo of the river posted showing a beautiful Saturday evening.

Also thanks to Chuck and Skye for the keg of beer and to Jim for the trophy. We have posted our 2nd place trophy for the Flamingo decorating contest.

Good idea; however, Texas State Park Sytem will not allow you to make reservations any further than 11 months out. So you will want to mark your calendar with a reminder in January to make your reservation for next year.

Had a GREAT tme

It sounds like everyone is making it home OK....except the weak ones who had to stay another night to recover. (you know who you are...)
Here are some pictures I hope you all enjoy.

Please note that my new Ranch Mascot Flamingo is at home......even though my Flamingo designed by Texans has similarities to the infamous.....an elephant is a horse designed by Committee.

Just wondering?

Are Alton and Anne Bell or Butch and Anna still volunteers there? We spent several months of March at Blanco S.P. They are great people! and really love the park.

I'll give you one guess on who might be missing something "Igloo" related ,
Michael remembered the table as soon as we got to the house😀

We also have a bunch of Emma's toys that she left at our campsite. We'll hold on to them all for a future rally or if you are in the area.
