Our Mission

"The Alamo Winnies have a great formula for fun filled and adventurous get

 togethers: campgrounds with clubhouses for meetings,pot luck meals, games, movie

nights, and getting out of the weather. Each gathering includes a Cook's night out.

There's daily social hours in the afternoon at a member's campsite and our canine

members are invited.  We also invite guest speakers and go on excursions to
 
local points of interest."



Spring 2018 Newsletter

The Spring months brought a lot of fun for the Alamo Winnies but also a devastating loss.

In March the Winnies went to a new campground, Medina Lake RV Resort.  We had a great turn out with some new folks joining us and, of course, most of the ‘regulars.’  Since we were a little further out of town than usual, we did less ‘eating out’ and instead did some extemporaneous meals.  One of the fun ones was hot dogs: simple any easy and inexpensive too.  Al quickly was identified as the Hot Dog Executive Chef because of his unparalleled ability to cook to perfection dozens of hotdogs on a tiny grill and have them come out just right.  The women made the shopping run to a local, and very small, grocery store to buy the dogs and buns and condiments.  The problem was there wasn’t a hotdog bun in sight!  But at the last minute, when we thought all was lost, the bakery truck showed up and saved the day!  Cornhole was played for entertainment and we later found out that ESPN actually shows national cornhole championships.  It was obvious we have some experts in our group that could put these national champions to shame.  We also used the huge campground smokers for a fajita meal and all the delicious side times that was orchestrated by the Ryons’.    The best margaritas in town were made and provided by the Bliants.  Mmmm!  Jennefer also did a cooking demonstration that was even attended by other guests at the campground.

Several Winnies went to the Texas W in Aransas Pass and also went to Victoria at the invitation of the Winnebago Texas Bluebonnets.

The Alamo Winnie’s May get together was at another new park, Longhorn RV Park, in Niederwald, Texas.  This is a new park and very nice.  We were treated great by the owners who even prepared the wood and lighting for a big fire one night where we cooked hobo dinners that were provided by the hosts, the Horeckas and the Bizzells who also provided a delicious breakfast one morning.  Though it was hot and windy, the food was delicious.  Boy, they sure knew how to spoil us!  We spent a lot of time at the pavilion overlooking the lake trying to stay cool and having fun.  The clubhouse overlooking the pool was reserved for us all weekend and one of our members, Nancy, did a interesting presentation on genealogy.  It was also used to watch movies and play cards in the evening.  A tiny little Mexican restaurant just down the road became the place to have lunch and after overwhelming it with our large group, they soon were welcoming us with open arms.

Though the Alamo Winnies had a fun filled Spring, it ended on a very sad note.  Our long term member and Treasurer, Marty Anderson, passed away after a long illness on June 15.  She loved camping with Mike, her devoted husband of 52 years, past president of the Winnies and current president of the Texas W.  She will be missed and long remembered by the Alamo Winnies.  I’m sure memories with her will be shared at the next get together in September when we meet at Brackenridge RV Park in Edna Texas.
