TBR 2007 Busnuts,

First, a HUGE "Thank You" to Sonnie Gray for doing extra legwork to track down a new site on such short notice! ;D

With that said, the TBR 2007 will take place at the Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma close to Denison, TX! 8)  Sonnie helped us secure the Cedar Hollow Group camping area at a fee of $15/nt with no in/out fees (normally $3/day per person).  These campsites have 30amp Elec & Water.  No sewage at the sites, but there are dump stations in the park.  We will also have free use of the pavilion in the group area (normally $50/day) which includes built-in grills for doing a little BBQ. :D 

To eliminate mass confusion trying to figure out the online or phone reservation system....Sonnie has graciously booked and paid for the Cedar Hollow Group area.  We have space for up to 37 buses/RV's in the group area (at last count we were expecting 25-30 buses :-\ ).  So no need to make reservations through the park system, but please confirm with Paul & I via this board or email that you will be attending the TBR 2007 on Sept 13-16.

Now Sonnie is a super nice guy ;D, but he would like to be reimbursed.....so please be prepared to pay Sonnie your $45 fee ($15/nt x 3) when you arrive at the park.  Otherwise we may find out what "Don't Mess With Texas" really means!!! :o

Here is the park address & directions:
Eisenhower State Park
50 Park Rd 20
Denison TX 75020-4878

From Dallas: Take Hwy 75 North to Denison. Continue on Hwy 75 for 5 miles. Take Texas Hwy 91(exit 72) to FM 1310, turn West for 2 miles to the park.


Despite the last minute switch-a-roo we are very excited about getting as many fellow Busnuts together as possible for the Texas Bus Roundup 2007!  I have attached an updated park map specifying the Cedar Hollow Group area.  Let me know if you have any questions/concerns that I can help you with and we will see y'all soon! ;D

For all of you busnuts coming to the Texas Bus Roundup 2007, this email is not for you, it is for your better half.

If any of you ladies are interested in a scrappin/scrap booking party let me know.  We need a commitment of at least 8. I am one, so we need 7 more. I have contacted a Close To My Heart Consultant that said she would be very willing to come and have fun. Let me know, so I can get us on her books. (Ought to be easy, it is my sister)
Just email the board and I will try to keep up with the numbers.

Scrapping 24-7--wouldn't it be fun~~

See you there!
Mike/Brenda/Paige

To those "better halves" mentioned earlier - are any of you quilters?  If so, bring something to show and tell or to work on while we visit.  I have some quilt tops ready so I might as well see if I can figure out how my dear sweet grandmother did all that quilting by hand and this roundup is as good a time as any - especially if I have some partners in crime.  I may even bring a few fat quarters for swapping or showing -who knows what kind of trouble we might get into.  Wonder if Dennison has one of those quaint little out of the way quilt shops..........hmmmmm................don't mention any of this to the men, okay?

I'll see you there!
