Man, that's about 40 miles away. If I can save enough money for fuel, Debbie and I will be attending. If you don't mind, we could do the Friday morning Breakfast Extravaganza with us supplying the meats. Just a thought so let me know. I'll post back with our dates. Later and have a great day.

Well, at least you're near Margaritaville and the Tiki bar.lolI I bring my golf cart up, you can be my designated driver,lol See you and Stella there along with the rest. Later and have a great day.

A golf cart?.... I think it really will be a mobile Tiki Bar-Limo with striped canopy with fringe. It will also have lights and Palm Trees to match Margaritaville!

i think you guys have hit on an idea here! Delivery service for Margaritaville or Margaritaville on wheels!! 😅😅😅

We will be there. Reservation made 14 - 21 Oct 2019. No site number yet. Frank, you do that breakfast, we'll do the gravy and I'll get the meat for it.

'Lil Guy'
02-21-2019, 11:16 AM
OK, the Breakfast Extravaganza is on again. I'll do the sausage, bacon and ham. Friday morning potluck breakfast to be held at 8:30 or 9:00 AM. Anybody's call on time.

avvidclif
02-21-2019, 11:29 AM
Let's see. Golf Cart and designated driver. Hmmmm sounds like a delivery service for those who enjoyed too much Margaritaville...

pegmikef
02-22-2019, 01:27 PM
Jason, my site is 207. Hey Frank, I hope you can control the Margaritaville patrons as I remember one year they tried to burn down a tree (don't remember if it was actually at Margaritaville though).

'Lil Guy'
02-22-2019, 06:02 PM
I believe that was in Alpine, Tx. Mike. Trying to charcoal steaks in 20 mph winds with lots of dry grass. Only charred a 10' circle of dry grass. Had the cooker on the patio but decided to move it behind the tree to block some wind. Ash catcher underneath the pit fell off and we were trailing hot embers. Another Heartland moment I'm trying to forget.lol
On a funny side, you should have seen George Speir come running out of his LM with a cookie sheet filled with water. By the time he made it to the fire, his tray was empty.

If Margaritaville and the Tiki Bar were involved with those vast mounts of alcohol, we would have never been able to put out the fire.
I can assure you that Margaritaville will be a huge draw this year with a controlled environment.

I'm waiting to see this "controlled environment." You're correct, it was Alpine and we remember George vividly because we were thinking of putting some money on when his rig was going to catch . . .

Jason, Dolly and I will be there the 14th and leave the 21st, Lori said we would be in site 103. I don't think there are any trees close by, but just in case, I will re-mount the fire extinguisher to a more accessible location.

I finally have made time to update the attendance list on the first page. Sorry I haven't been on here to respond to everyone.

Frank I'm glad to hear you are up for your " Breakfast Extravaganza" on Friday morning and bringing the Tiki bar for nightly entertainment!

I'm looking forward to the fall hopefully life for me will slow down by then.

Hey Jason and Audra - the Belettis will represent. Unsure if it will be just myself or Nancy and the pups too.

I have updated the attendee list. I think I have everyone that has sent me a email or PM.

We were going to have a true Pot Luck for supper on Saturday night, But after the region get together at the national rally I was told by many that they were expecting me to do my magic on the smoker again so I will be cooking Brisket, Pulled pork, Chicken and Sausage.

We hope everyone has a safe Fourth of July and I'm really looking forward to cooler temps in October.

Jason,

Now that our remodeling effort is virtually complete, we plan to attend this rally.

Today, we made our campsite reservation for a pull-thru site to arrive on Thursday, 10/17 and depart on Monday , 10/21.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in October!!

Gonna need help with the Friday morning 'Breakfast Extravaganza'. Be thinking of sides to go with the bacon, ham and sausage. Egg dishes, potato dishes (casserole, fried, etc), fruit, Juice, cheesy grits, biscuits and gravy, etc. and whatever you eat for breakfast. Since this is going to be a big meal, 9:00 AM would be great. Help us make this one of the best breakfasts we've had to date and there have been some great ones.
Debbie and the girls will have the punch fountain going with Mimosas. Looking forward to the rally.

Arriving 10/17-10/20 Site #101

Get your lawn chairs ready as we will be demonstrating how not to back a 5th wheel (no pull thrus available). Should be a good show.

It will be good to see Jim again, been a while since the inaugural West Texas Chapter Rally.

Sounds like the early arrivals need to get out the score cards, Hopefully I have a pull thru so Debbie and I don't get into another shouting match where she throws wine bottles at me.
Again, looking forward to the rally.

I procrastinated until all the pull thrus were gone. Early signups got the easy way. No problem someone has to provide some entertainment. Now Frank if you find out you have a back in let us know so we can get there early enough for the show.

I had a conversation with Lady E and the RV professor Terry Cooper at the RV show in Dallas today. Since we are having the rally at their park, they have both offered to do presentations for us on Saturday. They have left it up to us on what to talk about and demonstrate. Lady E will do a cooking presentation and Terry will do something on RV repairs.

I would love for y'all to give me suggestions on what you want to see so I can let them know.

I would like for Lady E to show how airfryers can be used in the rv. I love mine, but could use more tips.

Can Terry talk about how to fix the tank handles in the udc, ie if they don't close all the way or are very hard to push/pull.

It seems the show of how not to back next Thur will have to be canceled. Due to a chance meetup between my roof and a tree limb I have a hole where the skylight in the bathroom was. It also damaged the roof and it will have to be replaced so we're not going anywhere for a while until repairs are made. We are thinking of driving out sometime to say "Howdy"
