Texas State Rally

October 19-21, 2018

Bellville, TX

HOWDY Y’ALL!!

We are looking forward to having YOU attend our wonderful TEXAS State Rally, October 19-21 at Coushatte Recreation Ranch (www.coushatterv.com) in Bellville, TX! In a laidback ‘out on the farm’ environment, we’ll enjoy the luxury of plentiful trees to keep things cool and plenty of wonderful TEXAS Hospitality to keep things hot! We’ll have generous catered meals (desserts big enough to feed 4!), entertainment, familiar games (and some not so familiar) plus great companionship to make this another great event! 

Come early and stay late – there is so much to do in Central TEXAS: Tour the Blue Bell Creamery plant and sample the superb ice cream. Visit Newman’s Castle or the Jail Museum. How about the blacksmith’s shop? Maybe the brewery is more your style?

Despite the fact that we’ve all become to depend on our GPS equipment, this is one place that you’ll want to either follow the directions on the Coushatte website (www.coushatterv.com) or call ahead for those same directions (979-865-5897).  Your GPS will take you on a more direct but much rougher road -- save that excitement for a drive in your toad!

Block the dates, make your plans now and come to the TEXAS State Rally October 19-21, 2018!

For additional details as they are published, see the Texas W website at http://www.texasw.org/
