2010 Texas Hill Country Rally - April 9-15, 2010
« on: February 24, 2010, 11:37:21 AM »
Ned and Lorna invite all of you to join us at the Spring Branch RV Resort April 9-15, 2010. No special plans - just make a reservation and show up for some fun!

Spring Branch RV Resort is located on Texas Hwy 281 about 30 miles north of San Antonio, TX. All sites are full hookup 30/50A pullthroughs and the park is satellite friendly. Amenities  include clubhouse & pavilion, large community fire ring (with all the rain this year there probably won't be a burn ban), and very clean restrooms and laundry.

The address is 10950 Hwy 281 N, Spring Branch, TX.  Toll free: 866 542-2110 or Office: 830 885 2491.  E-mail address:  sbrv@gvtc.com
Website:  www.springbranchrvresort.com

You can make the reservations online at their website or call for the Hill Country RV Forum Rally.  In the comment section state the size, type of rig, and number of people.  He will give a discount if we get 5 or more rigs.  Please post a reply on this thread including name & state if you are coming.

We had the Hill Country Rally there last year and everyone was very happy with the facilities.  Robert went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied and taken care of.  It is very centrally located to San Antonio, Austin, Fredericksburg, and Johnson City.

Sure wish we could make it Lorna, but we won't be in that area.  It was sure fun last year and a great opportunity to meet many of our RV forum friends.

We had hoped to attend but it will be a little early for us.  We won't head west for a couple of weeks after that.  But we will see you at your place before you head north.

I sure hate it, but we're going to be in Kansas and Missouri for a month about that time.  My aunt is selling the home place where my Grandfather settled in 1908, and we're helping setup the stuff for the auction.  When they asked for the help, I was afraid it might interfere with your  ralleyNe, and I was right.  Since I've retired, we've been on the road quite a bit and was looking forward to being able to participate for the whole time.

For anyone considering going to Spring Branch, I saw a report on the news today that due to the cool, wet weather this year, the wildflowers in central Texas are expected to be extra beautiful this year, and April is when they will be at their peak.

Ned & Lorna,

Can't say for sure we will be there but we'll put it on our schedule. We're hoping to leave here in early April.

Sure wish we could be there, but we won't be leaving NC until after the azalea, dogwood, redbud, daffodil, crocus, and all the other beautiful flowering trees, bushes, and plants have done their thing this year.

Hope you all have an even better time than last year!

I know we are right after the crocus ;) only kidding.  We will miss you but that means that we can talk about you and the others that can't make it ;D  It was so much fun last year.  Looking forward to seeing anyone who can come.  Dave and Jeanette it will be great to see you again.

Jim the flowers in the Hill Country should be in full bloom by April.

Wow, we are so close but no cigar. We'll be in White Sands, NM for the Trinity Site open house on 4/3, but have to be back home in Goodyear on the 7th. Sorry.

We will miss you, Bernie and Marlene, but then we can talk about you too ;) 

From what I have heard the flowers are suppose to be spectacular this year.  As Ned said we have over 20 Bluebonnets coming up in our yard and they should be in bloom for the rally along with fields of them in the area.  Canyon Lake is back to normal after being 20' low last summer.

I talked to Robert yesterday and a minimun discount will be 15%.  For those that are attending the FMCA in Albuquerque and the Hop, Skip and Jump there is plenty of time to make this one too ;D

Hey guys - we might be able to make it, but not sure.  We are hoping to get away middle/end of April so this might work out (or not).  Thanks for putting it together again - we had a bunch of fun last year!!

We won't have our coach back in time to make it. We are hoping for the end of April, but still don't have all the parts in hand. Still missing the front cap, which kind of puts a damper on things!

Sorry to hear that Gary.  You did say the last time we talked that you probably wouldn't be ready to travel until the beginning of May.  We can always hope though.  We will be leaving the lot sometime the beginning of May.  We will be back sometime in Oct. I think.  Hi to Nancy.

Hi Lorna and Ned,

We are Joe and Lynn Grano from Houston and would love to join your group.  We have sent in our reservation request for 04-11 to 04-14.

We have only been fulltiiming for 5 months.  We are very interested in possibly setting up a home base in the Hill Country and hope you don't mind if we might pick your brains a bit.

Thank you for providing the opportunity and we'll see you soon.

Sorry Ned & Lorna for a little thread drift  ::)

We have a small ranch 30 miles due west of Fredericksburg which is our home base for the winter - we love living in the Hill Country.  If you want to look around the Kerrville or Fredericksburg area, I can hook you up with some good people.

Thanks, John.

I'm not looking for a ranch, more like a place to park (that I own).  I'm trying to determine how best to find something like that.

Perhaps your sources can help.  Will I see you at the rally?

Joe - you can buy anything from a lot to a 2,000 acre ranch and anything in between.  We want to make the rally but we're not sure if the timing will work out for us.

Here is an update on the rally which is two and half weeks away.  It looks like the spring flowers will be in full bloom by then.  Because of   the rain and warm weather the flowers are really coming to life.  Some of the bluebonnets in our yard are already blooming.  If you have been thinking of coming you can go to Spring Branch RV Resort website and register or call them and mention the Hill Country Rally. 

The address is 10950 Hwy 281 N, Spring Branch, TX.  Toll free: 866   542-2110 or Office: 830 885 2491.  E-mail address:  sbrv@gvtc.com
Website:    www.springbranchrvresort.com
 
The following have signed up:

Dave and Jeanette Reavis - North Carolina/Texas
Joe and Lynn Grano - Houston, Texas
Ned and Lorna Reiter - Wisconsin/Texas

Since there are only 3 of us signed up for the rally, we're moving the venue from the Spring Branch RV Resort to our lot.  Between us and our next door neighbor, we have room to park 3 RVs with full hookups, in addition to ours.

If you have reserved at the campground, please call and cancel and email us for directions to our location.
