We had a great turn out for the Friday evening Potluck and Raffle.
We raised $400.- to benefit Blanco SP via "the friends of Blanco State Park".
Thank you everyone for the awesome food, good company and fun raffle contributions.
Special thanks to Roseanne and Cannonball for making this evening so much fun! We had to drag Bruce in from running laps around the park to help us with the raffle, so we can assume his knee replacement went very well.
Today we will join the Blanco Christmas parade with 3 richly decorated entries, hoping for the rain to hold off until later tonight.
Sorry for the sideways picture

Thanks to Peter for setting up this "rally/non-rally". We had a great turnout. I counted 18 rigs in the Park. As Peter mentioned, we raised $400 for the Friends of Blanco State Park. The funds have been turned over to the head park ranger at the park, who is also a member of the Friends. She mentioned that she had spoken to the head person, and they are very excited about our donation. I believe that they will be sending a thank you note. I just gave them my address, and when I receive the note, I will scan and post it on this thread.

Thanks again to everyone for their participation and generosity.

Here is a photo of the festivities:

Hey everyone..great weekend with special thanks to Peter, Cindy, Roseanne (great mince tart! and the usual catering excellence) and Cannonball.Hi also to Kevin and Melissa in their diminutive Airstream and love of fine Mexican cuisine. Great to catch-up with Ben, Cristie , Austin and Sofia after some 10 years (need to know how to reach you as Carmen is ready for a catch-up get together).
Peter, thanks for putting this all together and providing continuous moral support for us newbies and to Joe for letting me ride along in the Christmas parade. See ya'll in Johnson City in April?

What a great time! Our family had a blast. My only regret was not being able to really socialize with our fellow campers much. Our two little kiddos pretty much make sure we're unable to carry on adult conversation for long. That being said, we had such a wonderful experience and plan to attend next year. Great people, great food, great venue. Thanks for all those who contributed to this event. There were some amazing trailers and motorhomes to be seen. You guys sure know how to care for your rigs.
Blanco parade was excellent, and within walking distance of the park.
Also got to catch up with an old friend Chris who used to be my neighbor 8 years ago. Couldn't believe my eyes when he knocked on our door. Time flies, GREAT to catch up with you Chris!

Ben, Kristin, Sophia and Austin.

By the way, on our way out of the park yesterday, Cathy & I stopped and dropped off a tray of "goodies", namely those darned lo-cal donuts, some Christmas cake, and some of Roseann's great cookies, to the park staff. I think we made a good impression, and the money certainly has to go along way as well.

Thanks again to everyone who participated, particularly the raffle donors.

See you on down the road. Keep the shiny side up.

What a Pitty for me, you all are soooo terrible far away! I wish i could be at this event myself and meet my Airstream-friends in Person! Congrates Peter to this event!
The funny thing is:
On Sunday evening i met here in Hamburg @ Christmasmarket a couple from Austin/TX!!
The brotver of the guy bought an Airstream, he was wondering about the "Red letters" on the coach, he had no idea aboit the WBCCI!
I kept gheir adresses, sometimes the worls is a "village".
Merry christmas to all of you, a blessed new year.
May the sun raise up daily for all of you!!!!
