So if your interested in coming..... I'd make a reservation soon! When you do please email me let me know how many is in your party, it also gives me a way to keep you informed of what's up.

Kerrville Texas Rally!

There are a few folks who have made reservations at Buckhorn lake Resort that did not call or email, that's ok, but I'm unable to contact you with any updates/ activities.

We are filling up fast, looks like we will have a waiting list.

Looking Good

Glad to see the great response to the Kerrville rally. Did you see my message about the possible date for our spring rally at Ron Hoover Oasis Resort in LaMarque? My preference is the last weekend in March 2014. The school spring break season will be at an end, but Easter will still be several weeks away. The wildflowers should be in bloom, the birds migrating, and all the local attractions will be up and running with the kinks worked out of their operations. Read Susan Wittag Albert's new China Bayles novel, Widow's Tears, this weekend. It's a fast read and gives lots of information about the 1900 storm.

How many and what sort of optional activities are you planning? Possibilities in the Galveston County area - beyond exploring independently - could include a dinner cruise, winery tour, or show at the Grand Opera House. (We're going down in July to see Riders in the Sky! Saw Asleep at the Wheel last year.) Those are just a few off the top of my head. We may be able to get discount coupons for Schlitterbahn, Pleasure Pier, Kemah Board Walk, Space Center Houston, Moody Gardens, and other venues from the Convention and Visitors Bureau.
What sort of numbers are you setting up with the park/resort in Kerrville? Did they ask for any contracts, deposits, etc.?
Is your RV out of the shop yet? Our next trip will probably be the weekend of June 14. East Tex-LA Escapee group will be getting together for their monthly lunch so we'll probably take the trailer up and try out one of the parks around Onalaksa or Woodville.
Would love to hear from anyone reading this post with thoughts about the spring rally or places to meet up more informally between now and then.

The only thing for me is your close to Spring break, and Easter , but the Ron hoover place looks great! For now we are planning a pot luck night, wine tour, movie night, catered meal night, big morning breakfast. Trying like my friend Bob S. said, just relax and let it happen.

Sorry I won't be able to make the Kerrville rally. Just too much going on this year. And thanks for the heads up Steph on the LaMarque rally. I hadn't seen anything on it (guess I'm looking in the wrong place), but it is definitely closer and Spring Break/Easter isn't a show stopper for us.

Now, if FROG's out there are going to be at Braunig Lake RV Resort this coming weekend (Memorial Day weekend), let's hear from you. We'll be there visiting the chitlins/grand chitlins in San Antonio.

Ron Hoover LaMarque more centrally located

There are several reasons why I've been working with Ron Hoover Oasis in LaMarque. The first is that they have indicated an interest in helping us out as sponsors beyond giving us rally pricing at the park. No details at this point, but I think this could possibly take the form of sponsoring a meal, providing goodies for drawings or door prizes, or possibly gift bag stuff. They indicated that it takes a minimum of ten units/20 people to make the organizational work of a rally worthwhile, but based on the response Lori is getting that doesn't look like it will be a problem.

The other reason I have gone with them so far is that they are more centrally located. Not everything of interest is on the Island. While Lone Star Flight Museum, Pleasure Pier, Opera House, historic homes and much more are on the island there is just as much on the Mainland. Examples include, but not limited to Space Center, Kemah Boardwalk, Haak Winery, Sea Center, Tanger Outlet Mall, Dog Track, Terminal Air Museum, etc. LaMarque is in the middle; it doesn't take long to get to any of those venues from there.
I will try to keep gathering information since we are so far out, but I wanted to get started so that folks like us, who can't make the October rally, have something to look forward to!

Kerrville Tx. Rally!

FYI, just spoke with Buckhorn folks, we have 3 site available/ left, then they will take names for a waiting list. She indicated that they may add a few more sites, put will not commit right now.
I'm missing several email addresses, if your not sure if you call or emailed it would help if you did, that way as it gets closer to the date I can send out info.
Can't wait to meet all our new friends!
