The Nor-Tex Travelers crossed the Red River to join forces with the two OK chapters, Green Country and Sooner Schooners, at the Windstar RV park in OK. It was our very own version of "Hot August Nights." Although the park lacks a full kitchen, they offered us their charcoal grill for burgers one night and potluck the other, which made meals easy. There is a large breezeway by the pool and we had a close game of beanbag baseball with the guys just barely edging out the gals. Activities included golf Friday morning; a trip to nearby Sanger, TX for lunch at Sarah's on the Square and shopping afterwards; card games; cooling off in the salt water pool; and, of course, a trip to the casino to donate to the local economy.
It was a fun way to meet our neighbors to the north and foster lasting friendships. Of course, Gary Rigsby, President of the TX W Club, did have to do a moderate amount of gloating over TX winning the head of row decorating contest at GNR. He proudly showed a framed photo of the "longhorn saloon" complete with its cast of shady characters.
