Ninth Annual Blanco, Texas Christmas Rally Dec. 9, 10, 11, 2011
Oldest Annual Forum Rally By Far

Santa Comes To Town on December 10.

I'm posting this early while there are still plenty of sites left in the park.

Last year some Airstreamers had problems with the reservations.

This will be a good outing for Vintage, first timers (and old timers), and kids...

Reservation numbers:
Austin: 512-389-8900
Park: 830-833-4333
or Texas Parks & Wildlife Department :: Your Reservation system for outdoor fun.
Texas State Parks Region 6 - under campground name enter: Blanco State Park

Gift Exchange Rules are the same as last year.

As in years gone by, there will be a hosted dinner at the park on Friday evening - BYOB, Drinks, Table, Chairs, and Setups - Desserts always welcome.

Pot Luck and Gift Exchange on Saturday Evening.

Please post any ideas you may have about rules, procedures, judging, or grievances.

Pets and kids (both on a leash) are welcomed.

If there are any doubts that kids are REALLY welcome just refer to last years postings:

and take a look at JimJ's picture gallery of the event:
Blanco, TX 2010 Christmas Rally - Photo Gallery=

The theme has yet to be devoloped - anyone with a suggestion please post here.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again - especially the younger Streamers.

We should be able to make it this year since no conflict with the THLU Xmas rally like the last two years. We made it the first three or four times.

On edit ... reservation is made! I'm coming down a day early (8th). Wife probably will come the 9th.

We just made our reservations. It looks like there are already very few sites available on the State Park reservation site. Looking forward to it because this will be our first time to attend and the reviews always sound like it's a great time. Will there be a Rally posting that we are supposed to RSVP on?

It will be good to see you guys.

This has always been a fun get together. The weather is sometimes a bit cool, but we have always had a great time. We particularly enjoy the vendors around the old courthouse and the small-town parade. Makes me think of the small town where I was raised.

Woo Hoo. We just made our reservations. :santa: Our last outing was the Vintage rally in Glenn Rose earlier this year. So much fun. But then they called me back to work. :sad: It will be so good to know we have something lined up. We went to Blanco on our "Maiden Voyage" (see pic). What a beautiful small park and immaculately clean.
Did I see someone say "Frozen Pipes"?? :blink:

According to a letter I received today from the Blanco Chamber of Commerce with regard to planning our Silver Christmas 2011 the parade will be Friday, December 9th at 6:30 pm and something called an evening on the square. Saturday is their Annual Christmas Market Day on the square.

Thanks Skye for letting me know about this one. Sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. If Dennis and Mary are involved it will be fun! Have always wanted to go but as John said, there always seemed to be a conflict with our THLU Christmas Rally. Glad it's going to work out this year. Jimmy and I will be there and look forward to seeing Frank and Mike, John and Kay, and Chuck and Skye and everyone else!

casa3805 07-17-2011 12:05 PM

OK, we are registered at the park but do I now need to register with a host? Send money? How do I get a hold of the rules and plans...?
we are blissfully ignorant. :p
