Matagorda Madness


        The Madness for 2014 has concluded… 

...Oh, how I miss the madness!            

Matagorda Madness 2014 ran from December 4 - 7, 2014.  This year’s rally had 48 trailers in attendance with our furthest traveler from Virginia.  Trailers included, Casitas, Escapes, Forest River, Oliver, and Scamps.

As usual, our weather ran to the extremes, with the added scourge of swarms of horse size mosquitos.  All in all, we were not deterred and still had lots of fun at our Beer Swap, Sip and Dip, Bonfire and other social events.

Thanks go out to Carolyn Youngmeyer, Rafaela Vega and Joyce Smith for their Crafts events that both entertained and educated.  Pam Erikson initiated a Scavenger Hunt that put folks out in the community searching for “artifacts”. And, finally, thanks to the special musicians who entertained us with impromptu concerts.

The Matagorda Bay Nature Center provided outdoor excursions including kayaking, beach combing and bird watching.  Simon DeSoto of the Colorado River Locks gave us a personal tour of the Locks and barge traffic.  Everyone had the opportunity to experience Matagorda Bay and most everyone did!

Thanks to each one of you for coming to this year’s event.  And thanks to the weather we learned why our rally is called Matagorda Madness!

The 2014 Agenda and Pictures are available on line.  For pictures and slide shows of previous Matagorda Madness gatherings, check out the sub-pages below.

Next year’s event will run from December 3 thru December 6, 2015.  I hope to see all of you there!
