Richard,

We need Rhonda to coordinate & moderate the ladies' activities. If us guys do it you know it will be WRONG! Glad to have her on board. Just have her email me with her ideas and we will get the ball rolling. If anyone else thinks that their wife would want to help Rhonda out I'm sure she would welcome it.

Let's remember that this rally is a group effort; we all need to help out with suggestions and ideas.

Is April 11-15, 2009(tenative) o.k. with everyone? If you have any conflicts please let us know. I would like to see if these dates are open @ Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville. Rally dates fill up quick.

April 11th to 15th works the best for us!

Went to the Buckhorn Lake Resort website and it looks like a very nice facility.

Our route to Kerrville is pretty uncomplicated....we jump on I-10 in Ontario, CA and drive 1200+ miles and exit in Kerrville...LOL!

Tom....if you are able to attend, maybe we could hook up with you on the way and travel there together. Let me know....

Mike H,

If you are coming down I-49 from Ruston and then catching I-10 in Lafayette Arnold and I could hook up with you and caravan on to Kerrville. Let me know what your plans are.

Remembering that the 12th is Easter, Buckhorn is pretty much full on that weekend. They have a Marathon Rally the 20th - 26th. They could probably get us in either the first part of the month leaving prior to the 9th or 10th or anytime between the 13th and the 19th. After that, it would be after the 27th.

Michael,

Thanks for calling Kathy @ Buckhorn. Personally, I would prefer the beginning of April; maybe April 1st thru the 5th. But I am open for any dates if someone else has a conflict.

What do the rest of you guys want?

Currently we have 10 coaches that are coming. According to Kathy we need 15 or more to get a special rally rate of $29+tax per site per night. If we all rally (excuse the pun) some of our Newell friends maybe we can get to the magic number of 15.

The 1st through the 5th puts me in Texas too early for the family wedding. We could do the 13th to the 16th, but would have to leave on the 17th to drive up to Tyler for the wedding. We could also probably do the 19th to the 23rd, after the wedding.

Does it have to be at Buckhorn? Is there another resort in the area, or region we could check out that has availability??

Clarke,

The 19-23 sounds good for both you and Tom, but Buckhorn is booked on those dates. So we will contact LaHacienda RV park west of Austin for those dates. They have just opened a new section but I'm not sure if they do rallies. Will keep everyone informed.

I reserved some sites at LaHacienda RV resort for April 19th thru 22nd checking out the morning of the 23rd, 2009. Each coach should call and reserve/pay for his site; reference the Newell rally. Ask for Linda 512 266-8001

This is a beautiful RV resort, and I encourge all of you guys to try to make it down to this mini rally. It is going to be a lot of fun.
