Michael,

I am at Newell now having a fender repaired. I met Morris Wienstein here; we had supper together last night. He is a great guy. Hope he can make the mini rally.

Thanks for clarifing the mini rally is not a Newell Coach sponsored rally.

I'm looking forward to it.

Please say Hi to Morris for me. I was aware he was taking his coach to Newell and I am glad to hear that the two of you got to meet.

For those of you who are GPS freaks, the approximate coordinates of the entrance to the La Hacienda RV Resort are N31.41707 W97.92973 (per Street Atlas) which seems reasonable based on the coordinates I recorded at my site when I was at the park in late November, 2008.

The address again is 5320 Hudson Bend Road, Austin, TX 78734. Phone numbers for reservations (don't forget to tell them you are with the Newell rally) are 512.266.8001 or 1.888.378.7275.

Look forward to seeing everyone in April.

I was told that the Rally rate would be a 15% discount as long as we had at least 10 sites. Not sure how many days before and after the 'official' rally dates that applies but other parks have typically allowed a number of days either before or after the rally at the special rate.

I will be making my reservations as soon as I lock down the dates tighter. I will likely be there by the 17th and stay past the rally.

After reading Tom's post about reserving a site I called La Hacienda again today. I originally tried calling to reserve one of the sites in December, but was told at that time that they would just assign one of the sites reserved by Tuga to me upon arrival in April. Didn't make any sense to me at the time, so I let Tuga know what they had told me. Apparently he straightened the misunderstanding out, as I was able to secure a site today in my name.

Clarke,

Glad to know that everything is straight with the RV resort resevations. I just didn't want to overbook any reservations.

Look forward to seeing everyone in April.

Hello Tuga:

My wife and I are now planning on attending the mini rally in TX. We are Coach #303 and live in CO. I will phone Linda tomorrow to make reservations.

I will send to you an email confirming our spot once received from Linda.

Thank you for organizing this opportunity. We look forward to meeting all.

Clarke,

Currently we have 10 coaches who have made reservations with LaHacienda RV park.

Post #30 on this thread lists the coaches that have made their reservations and have contacted me so that I can list them.

I will edit post #30 as folks notify me that they are going to attend the rally.

Hi Tuga...it looks like we have a 12th coach (Ron and Jean Skeen) for the rally. I noticed Ron's post in the "Introduce Yourself" forum says that he has made reservations for the mini-rally, so that would make 12 now, I believe!

Clark, thanks for catching that post. I have added Ron & Jean to the list, and yes that does make 12 coaches in attendance. Morris Weinstein told me that he will ride his motorcycle from Kerrville (he owns a site in Buckhorn) to the rally. So I guess that makes 12 1/2 coaches in attendance. It is shaping up nicely. I think it is going to be a blast!

Hi Tuga,
If I don't get called out to work in the next four weeks I will coming to the rally with Tom. We will be traveling from Arizona together. I am hesitant to reserve a spot because the odds are pretty high that I could be working. If I'm working and can't get a spot I will travel with Tom anyhow and just go to San Antonio to visit relatives.

Great Wally, hope you can make it. If I might suggest; check with LaHacienda RV Resort regarding their cancellation policy. I think that it is one day but I would confirm it if I were you. If it is a one day cancellation policy, make the reservation so we can all be parked together then if you have to cancel call them one day ahead of the rally and your cost will be zero.

Just a thought! Hope you can make it. Let me know when/if you make the reservation and I will add you to the list.
