Feb 2013 At Sunset point Rv Park, Marble Falls, Texas
The Texas Bluebonnet Allegros Tiffin Chapter 202 rallied Feb. 10-13 at Sunset Point RV Park in Marble Falls, TX. We had 18 coaches in attendance.
Our wonderful hosts Steve & Becky Gallun and Bill & Fran Ferrier put on a great weekend for us. Wednesday when we arrived they had cold cut sandwiches for us which was above the call of duty. We all visited out on the nice warm patio of the clubhouse on the lake until late in the evening. Some went into the clubhouse and played all kinds of games.
Thursday morning, as a group, we visited Fort Croghan Museum and grounds. It is one of an arc of Texas Forts built on the “western” frontier to protect the pioneers. There is a very nice museum building and then we were given a guided tour of the many buildings at the site. We returned to the clubhouse and had lunch on the leftover cold cuts. For dinner we had heavy hors d’oeuvres followed by visiting and more games, “42” dominoes, jokers and pegs, and sequence.
Friday morning some the members played golf and some of the group went shopping and moseying about town. As is the “routine” everyday, we had happy hour at 4PM, followed by a group dinner at River City Grill located on the Colorado River. We returned to the campground clubhouse for more games and visiting.
Saturday we were served a fine breakfast of blueberry & apple pancakes & sausage. This was followed by our business meeting, which was quickly followed by our tech talk led by Chip Jennings. This is so popular that most of the members attend including many of the ladies. Discussion of maintenance and other items of care and safety of our coaches is the topic.
Afternoon was again taken up with visiting and games. After happy hour our wonderful hosts served us a fine meal of chicken chili, salad, cornbread, tea, coffee and fine cobblers for dessert. Oh, and don’t forget the ice cream that was served every night. For those of us that could stay awake after all this food, it was visiting and games.
Sunday we met again at the clubhouse for a light continental breakfast that included left over pancakes, juice and coffee. Everyone said their goodbyes until we meet at our next rally and then we were off.
Our next rally is in Boerne, TX March 10-14 at Alamo Fiesta RV Park.
