Javelina Roundup

Our 2018 Javelina Roundup, held in Davis Mountains State Park near Fort Davis, Texas is long gone!  
This years gathering was held September 29 through October 7, 2018.

A big thank you to Blair McClure for hosting this site
and to each of you who were able to come, relax, and help make it a run gathering!  The weather was great and much fine pick'n and jam'n was had by many.  Special thanks to Greg Smith and Jerry Crees (the Lucky Dogs) and to each of you who brought your guitars and ukuleles.  Greg Smith did a mighty fine job leading some informal classes and organizing our guitar pull.  Also, a big shout out to Larry and Debbie Gamble for sponsoring our gathering again this year!

Next years Javelina Roundup will be held in Davis Mountains State Park from Saturday, September 28th through Sunday, October 6, 2019.  The theme will be 'Happy Trails - Just Camp'n', as this will be a very, very, very informal and relaxing gathering!
You can make reservations now with Texas Reserveworld.  Since the park fills up completely during our gathering, it is good to get your reservations made early with the park system.  Registration for next years gathering will be opened in a few months.  

A great thank you to all who hosted our morning coffee's (held at a different site each day) and to those who prepared our griddle cake breakfast!  Special thanks to Tom and Unie who prepared wonderful crunchy bacon for our group!
Many folks enjoyed going to the MacDonald Observatory during the day - or for a Star Party on Saturday or Tuesday nights.  Or to the Fort Davis National Historic Site.  Our day trip to Alpine was great!  And our soup nite, with the Lucky Dog Band, was a 'hit' and was enjoyed by all who attended!
And our javelina friends were in attendance this year and even rousted some of our campers.  
Being a very informal gathering, we had a lot of time to relax, hike, and make new friends.  Hope you had a good time!  And a warm thank you to Wayne and Charlotte for hosting our Sunday morning devotional!

And finally, we want to thank Jeannine Patani, who came all the way from the outer banks of North Carolina, to join us!  Her friendliness and enthusiasm for the RV lifestyle are greatly appreciated.  She publishes an online monthly newsletter called The Roost.

Hope to see ya'll on the trail next year!
