ROW 2017 Rock Out Weekend
Events will spring up on the spur of the moment, people will choose to just hangout at the swimming hole all day and some will go all-in on all the events. It is whatever works for you.
We are camping at the ranch! We will try to camp at this swim hole if possible! The camping is primitive, just porto-potties at the campsite BUT there are flushing toilets & showers in the main building where we will eat each meal. You will not be 'roughing' it on this camping trip.
The nice part - big starry Texas nights and an open area to view them.
You'll be close to the swimming hole and it's really peaceful in this part of the ranch.
Member Only Information:
Here's an overview of what the fuss is all about. The name comes from originally renting a house to do a bike ride to Enchanted Rock (the rock) and back. But, we got to the house and no one really wanted to ride that hard, it was more of a "hey let's just chill and enjoy the Hill Country"........
Every year more people came and we had to find a bigger house until we settled on Flat Creek Ranch, 500 acres of our own ranch in the middle of the Hill Country (we share a fence line with Pedernales State Park).
There are hiking and biking trails, a private swimming hole, 1000's of stars and room for everyone. It's "rustic" (don't expect mints on the pillows) and comfortable. The property has a "hotel", and several cabins of varying sizes scattered around the ranch. You might see people saying in the RSVP comments "I want to stay in the same room as last year". No worried, no shortage of bathrooms.
There are also several refrigerators to share in the main dining areas and some rooms have a mini fridge. Please feel free to also bring your own coolers.
We have a very large dining hall where we serve dinners and breakfast items are laid out to grab as you go out the door to whatever adventure you have planned for the day (talk about that a little more below).
Dinners and breakfast foods are included in the price - that is Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights and Friday, Saturday Sunday mornings. We also put some lunch "fixins" out if you want to grab a sandwich to go for the day. We have some BCO'ers who are amazingly talented in the kitchen and on the grill so expect to be full and happy after dinner and ready to hangout under the stars.
And yes, we do ask everyone to pitch in and help - there will be a sign in board for volunteering.
Prior to the weekend, there will be numerous events posted on the calendar for the weekend. These events include hiking on the ranch and at Enchanted Rock. Biking on the ranch and in the area. Rock climbing in the area. Swimming in our private swimming hole, sight seeing all around the area, from Fredericksburg to blue bonnets in the pastures. Wine tasting & even whiskey tasting at times.
In addition to the events that are posted on the calendar, there is a white board in the dining hall that is used for last minute events, event changes, event ideas, pretty much anything to do with events.......
