Event Description

This is #12! We missed last year, but let's hope we can all be back together again to consume food and make merry! 

We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest  before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.

It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,

Party Central will be at site #4o. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site). 

As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.

It looks like Eva will be joining us on Saturday. I expect she'll take one of the two slots that have been freed up (see list above).

I may stop by...if so, I will bring a pie. Hey, that rhymes!

Hey all, Melissa here. Just want to say I really enjoyed connecting with you all at Sandy Beach, sharing food and conversation and enjoying the fantastic sunshine! There are a few people I missed visiting with this time around, and will try mightily to connect with you next time. I may no longer have a VW camper, but I feel grateful to have my VW camper family friends! Safe travels everyone.

Everybody is either a VW Owner or a VW owner in recovery. It's all good, as Regis might say. 

And I want to thank everybody who showed up, particularly the first-timers and the ones who shared music as well as conversation. I think this might have been the best Food Fest yet.

I have a wooden spoon, a white-handled corkscrew, a pink towel, and a bottle of wine. The wine will go into the Intoxication Fund and be contributed to the Soup Or Bowl Party. As for the rest of it, it I have no takers, they're mine! Mine! Mine!

Yes, this was a great gathering for sure.

Good News. I FOUND MY RING! had I not emptied out the van I would have never discovered it. It was underneath something that was underneath something else. I'm so happy.

Thank you everybody that had your eagle eyes open. Especially Kathy Marlow! You all are awesome!

See you all in Feb.

Excellent!  Glad you found your ring.  Had a great time as always.  We really enjoy our VW family.  See you in February.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

It was so good to reconnect with the VW Camper Family and to meet some new campers. Thank you to Joe and Corey for letting me share your spot, and to John for instigating the event, and for unleashing your song "Little Red Dot" upon the world. Happy Thanksgiving to all
