Texan's Lets meet at the Beach
 
Looking to put together an end of the Summer Beach meet for Ram Owners on the Beach at Port Aransas. There is plenty of Camping, RV Resorts and Motels. If the turn out is big enough I will invite some Texas Musicians out to play around the Campfire for us (if only a few then we can still have a good time). There is over 6 miles of drivable beach.

If your interested in going and possibly help in the planning PM me or post here. I'm headed out there tomorrow, I'll take a few pictures but IM sure the 4th of July Weekend will be crowded...

Info on Port Aransas.
One reason people come to Port Aransas is to enjoy the 6.3 miles of beach along the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Parking a car on the beach requires a $12 annual sticker that can be purchased from local convenience stores or from vendors located on the beach. The sticker is valid until December 31 and allows the vehicle to park along the beach from the City Limit at Lantana Dr near Horace Cladwell Pier through Port Aransas Beach to the Kleberg County line (south of Bob Hall Pier). Free Parking areas in the City limits include between the Jetties and Horace Caldwell Pier and between Markers 52-58.

Camping in a tent or pop-up is permitted for up to three consecutive days within a three-week period at no charge and small 3 ft x 3 ft campfires are allowed.

RV camping is permitted on the beach for up to three consecutive days within a three-week period at no charge but the RV must display a Beach Parking sticker and any towed vehicle that is detached from the RV must also display a Beach Parking sticker.

The City of Port Aransas provides trashcans along the beach to keep litter from spoiling the beach scene.

Between the sand dunes and the wooden post markers, the beach is a two-lane Texas roadway, subject to all applicable traffic laws.

From the posts to the waterline, people can kick back and relax, read, enjoy the sun, play beach games (Frisbee, volleyball, football).

The water is great for swimming, bodysurfing, boogie boarding, and surfing.

Port Aransas Beach Guards oversee the beach area from Avenue G south to Sandcastle Drive from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

That's a great idea nopaydave! I'm in bud! In fact I am planning on driving the family for a little beach fun myself. Hey, take some good picks and share 'em with all here to get bit on this idea!:smileup:

Put me down as a maybe. To be really honest about it, i'm kinda tired of planning these things or planning to go to them and then at the last minute almost everyone backs out for some reason or another. History has shown that if you have 50 people say they are going to be there for sure---no question about it---you will probably end up with 5-10. I'm not trying to be a dick about this but i've just seen it happen time after time. I'd like to go, and if I can help you I will, but I'm just passing along my experiences trying to organize one of these. Good luck and let me know if I can help you in any way. I've got something going the end of August and the first part of Sept so a date would be helpful.

If 3 go then it's enough to have a good time but the more the better. We have some time and I will be there for sure.

3's enough---more beer for us-----LOL
(like your dog's pic---Border Collie?)

Border & Aussie Mix. Good dog.

I have put on a few events in my days. Mostly Charities. Sometimes you need to start small and then grow them into a unmanageable monster and then, after your done being proud of what you achieved....you wish for the old days when they were small.:doh:

The distance isn't the issue its the time it takes to cover that distance that's the issue. When you figure out the date I'll know if I can come.
