The Fourth Annual 4CU New Years Rally at Picacho Peak State Park is coming right up! Mark your calendars for Thursday, December 30, 2010 to Sunday, January 2, 2011 (check out before 2 PM)! Early arrivals are welcome beginning Wednesday, December 29th.
Picacho Peak State Park is in Arizona, right off I-10, about half way between Phoenix and Tucson. The closest town is Eloy, AZ, situated between Casa Grande and Tucson.
We will rally in the Quail group area, which has electricity in the Ramada; water is available, and there is a large group fire-ring for our New Year’s Eve Bonfire. We'll be providing champagne to ring in the New Year! There will be a hike up the Peak (optional, of course!), a Dessert Cook-Off (Dutch Oven treats encouraged but not required), a White Elephant Gift Exchange, games, evening Happy Hours, at least one Potluck dinner, and some time to just sit back and relax in the mild Arizona winter weather!
The Quail Group site is dry camping - no hookups. But we will have full access to the modern showers and restrooms at the regular campgrounds, which is also where we can use the dump station and water.
We have paid the $35 to reserve the group site. Your cost is $15 a night per trailer, payable to the Ranger when you arrive and check in.
All activities are optional of course, and we will maintain an informal schedule! What to bring?
- Food & drinks for potlucks, dessert bake-off, and snacks
- Firewood for group fire-ring
- Cash (dollars) for games and raffle tickets
- A wrapped White Elephant Gift
- Warm clothes, including hats & gloves, for possible cold evening temperatures
- Sturdy shoes & gloves if planning to hike to the Peak!
This is a Four Corners Unit Rally and is open to all WBCCI members. Anyone who is not a member will have to be a guest (we’ll work with you on this!).
Co-hosted once again by the fabulous Louis & Sergio and Ken & Linda, this rally is a welcome retreat from the hectic holiday season in a lovely Sonoran Desert environment, and a great way to start off the New Year! We hope to see you around the campfire!
