Matagorda Madness


Registration is Open


After 6 years at the helm of the Madness, Jackie Erikson has stepped down as the wagon master and I have taken the reins. I want to thank Jackie and Pam for their wonderful leadership and dedication to our unique gathering on the Gulf.

The official dates for the 2018 Matagorda Madness are 11/29/2018 to 12/02/2018. Wednesday, November 28th we will have an “Early Bird Special” which will be an unofficial day of the gathering for a beer swap in the evening if you would like to attend. If you're joining us for the 2018 Madness, I suggest you make your reservations for Wednesday night thru Saturday night in order to attend all of our "festivities".

While you are in Matagorda, you can explore the area, go birding, fishing, kayaking and attend some of the great LCRA Nature Center courses. The weather this time of year historically is 49-69 degrees and is the second lowest month on the calendar for rainfall. 

First, you need to get a reservation on Reserve America's website for the Matagorda Bay Nature Park, and then come back and Register With Us so we can properly plan for our gathering. The Madness, who's coming?

As the Madness gets closer, and you have registered, I'll be informing you of the Nature Center offerings and other outings that may take place.


We have had great times in years past, and we hope to see you at this year’s gathering down on the Third Coast.

Sincerely,
