Tenth Annual Blanco, Texas Christmas Rally Dec. 7, 8, 9 2012

I'm calling for this rally a couple of weeks earlier than last year to try to fill the park with Aluminum and eliminate the white fiberglass of the SOB's from Blanco SP for this particular weekend.

The success of the big Pavillion last year (especially with the rain during the Dirty Santa) demands the reservation of the facility for any future Forum Blanco get-togethers. To this end the organizers will probably ask a nominal donation this year to offset some of the ever growing expenses.

Each year I write that the previous year's gathering would be hard to beat, yet this thing just keeps on growing and getting better.

I have heard through the grapevine that several more Vintage Projects have been (almost) completed, so let's hope that the Vintage Rigs (especially the "almost completed" ones) make a huge showing.

As last year, Market Days will be on Saturday during the day, and the Parade starting about 6:30.

Hope everyone gets in at the State Park, or at a really close alternative.

Is the online reservation system not working or are all the campsites already taken?

I would suspect that most are already taken. Call the park to be sure. We will be there... and I promise to do no bodily harm to my wife this year

Skye, bring your "A" game, girl.

Last week Westfalia booked sites for his family, my family, and Top's family. These were supposedly the last spots available, but you never know.

See everyone in December.

Plans are always changing. Make it a regular part of your job to keep checking back on-line. People always have to cancel reservations (especially some made this far out) for one reason or another.

Send a message via Skype™ to Melody Ranch
And.....my pet peeve (not that it matters)....people who block off a reservation, not having a clue if they will attend or not. Just in case. The Parks should have a no refund reservation system as many privately run ones do. It would clean out the problems.

My MH is my only wheels at a rally so transpotation was a big concern. I have to bring my dogs as they have medical needs. A cabin or motel would not work for me. Thanks Peter and Mary for the offer of transport. I will keep checking for a cancelation until closer to Dec. If I dont get a space at the park I will book as close as possible. I dont want to miss the fun, food and friendship. See ya in Dec. Kay
