Step 2- Get a team together and figure out what you're cooking, start perfecting that recipe!
RULES ARE HERE. Tell your workplace you need off. Don't ask, just tell.
Step 3- Reserve your cabins. **CALL Lonestar Jellystone in Waller, Tx to get the discount rates. You will need to bring your own towels and bedding.
Step 4- Purchase pre-sale tickets and category entries to save money! This will be available online in December. You will be able to purchase everything at the door too...just no discount.
Step 5- Get your theme & patriotic gear ready...outfits, decor for golf cart & cabin, team site. We take this very seriously. We will look at you funny if you look too normal.
Q: Okay so what do I do when I arrive?
At the entry gate make sure you know the name of the person who made the cabin reservation or if they have already checked in- the cabin number. Get your wristbands, kids 10 and under are free but they still need a wristband for their activities. Get all settled in friday, you can put some stuff in the cooking arena to hold the space you want for your team, up to you. Get your golf cart. Then you can head to the pavilion to get your turn- in containers, t-shirts, what not...you can also get these items on Saturday. There will be raffle items set up in that area so check them out. Raffle is drawn just before awards on Saturday.
Q: Whats the weather usually like?
She's a moody-moody mistress. Pack a heavy coat & thermals and shorts & flip flops. And mudboots & rain gear.....we usually go through all the seasons of Texas in that one weekend. The pool is temperature controlled to bring swimsuits for the kids.
Q: Can I bring my own beer?
Of course you CAN, this IS AMERICA!....we encourage you to consider travelling light where you can, and support the general store onsite! They stock up for this weekend!
Q: Anything I cant bring?
The only thing you should leave at home is the drones.....something about invasion of privacy. But we will have a film crew and event photographer soooooo there's that. Let them know if you don't want to be included in that.
Q: Who puts this on every year?
Just 5 regular folks with day jobs, who try to keep things organized.
