Well it’s a new year and time to start the discussion for where to have this year’s meet (thanks @towcat) I’ve spoken with a number of local members and here are the suggestions that I have received, and some of the features of each location that I have found through some research: 1. Guadalupe River State Park Four miles of river front, full hookups for campers, showers and bathrooms for tent camping, close to San Antonio and Austin, lots of local attractions around the hill country area, and less than ten minutes from our shop for those who would like to check that out https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/guadalupe-river 2. Palmetto State Park Multiple swamps, streams, oxbow lakes and the San Marcos river are all options for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. These boats are available to rent on the park grounds or visitors can bring their own. Lots of trails and place for fishing. Cabins, RV hookups bathrooms and showers are all available as well. This location is more secluded but a very scenic park. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/palmetto 3. Hidden Falls Adventure Park Off-road trails, atv and dirt bike rentals and shooting range. All camp sites have water and electric, bunk house, RV hookups and tent sites available. http://www.hiddenfallsadventurepark.com/ 4. Pedernales State Park Similar attractions as Guadalupe river state park but located closer to Austin. Fishing, hiking and bird watching with RV hookups, and campsites available. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/pedernales-falls/fees-facilities/campsites 5. Garner State Park Swim or canoe the Frio river, explore the trails through the 1,700+ acres, or play mini golf at the park hq. Screened shelters, cabins, campsites and RV hookups available. Groups campsite reservations are available. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/garner 6. Surfside Beach The wildcard option, off-roading and sand trails, cheap camping on the beach, easy to keep the group near each other, fishing and swimming on the beach. http://www.surfsidetx.org/ These are the locations we are currently considering so let’s hear which one is your favorite. Whichever has the most support by March 1st will be where this years meet will be. We will be meeting the weekend after thanksgiving so November 23-25th. This seemed to work well for everyone last year so I think we’ll stick with this date this year as well.
