Javelina Roundup

Registration is Open! 
The 2019 Javelina Roundup and Acoustic Jam will be held Saturday, September 28th through Sunday, October 6th, 2019, at beautiful Davis Mountains  State Park, just 2 miles west of Fort Davis, Texas.  Come join other Casita and MFGRV owners for a fun, informal gathering! This years theme is 'Happy Trails - Blue Skies'. Please feel free to arrive early (as long as you have camping reservations with the park).

This year you will be pre-assigned a specific site number by the State Reservation System, which we request you provide when your register for our gathering.  And don't forget to purchase a Park Pass to avoid the daily entrance fees.

We are changing up this year's protocol a bit:  This is NOT A RALLY!  Events will not be pre-planned by your host in advance, as we have done in thee past!  For this year's informal gathering, YOU will have the opportunity to suggest and 'grab by the horns' what you would like us to do!  I am going camping this year and I will be happy to help facilitate your 'event'.  It can be as simple as hosting a coffee in the morning, or a pot luck supper, or a griddle cake breakfast, or maybe even a 'road trip' from Marfa over the mountains west of Presidio.  The skies the limit and you know that others will jump in to help you.  Or maybe even a musical jam session - or guitar pull - one fine band has already claimed an event!   Again - this is NOT A RALLY.  I am looking forward to a relaxing time enjoying nature and the company of good friends. 

Many folks love going to the MacDonald Observatory during the day ­ or for a Star Party on Friday, Saturday or Tuesday nights. Or to the Fort Davis National Historic Site. Or to the Museum of the Big Bend at Sul Ross State University in Alpine! There is lots to do and see around Fort Davis, Marfa, and Alpine!

Davis Mountains State Park has a lot of wildlife, including our beloved javelinas, deer and many species of birds. The weather in the mountains of west Texas can change quickly, but they usually have mild days and cool nights in early October (55 ­ 80 degrees). The park has beautiful tree shaded sites and it is famous for its miles of hiking trails.

Please make your camping reservations online with the Texas Parks and Wildlife first (or call 1(­512­)389­ 8900), then come back and  Register HERE for the gathering.  (You will see a Thank You page for registering, and if you entered your email address correctly, you will receive a confirmation email). See Who is Coming ! HERE

PS ­don't forget your acoustic instruments (guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, dulcimers, etc) for our informal jam sessions.


Sincerely, Brian Margason (aka BrianTex) and my javelina friends.
