Santa Ynez Elks Jamboree 2011 @ Live Oaks Campground
Well we had another great campout this year. The Santa Ynez Elks always put on a great jamboree.
We left on Thursday and met Jim and Paula Elkins on the way to Live Oaks.
We arrived about noon, checked in, and after getting setup we had a drink and started relaxing with McDaniels & Barks, who were already there.
Thursday evening was a quiet time with everyone just relaxing and taking it easy.
Friday broke bright and pretty. That evening we went over to eat BBQ beef at the pavilion. It was good, Belinda and the rest of the ladies liked not having to cook or do dishes. We then set around and visited with friends and listened to the band. The band was good and we danced some. It was then back to the trailers to set around the fire and swap stories. For some of us it was an early night.
Saturday came in great. Just cool enough to make it nice and warming up to a very pleasant day. We went over for breakfast, we then went back to camp after the pig races to get ready for the BBQ and dancing that night. The band was the String Rays and they are really good. They played a lot of oldies and we had a great time dancing and having fun.
Sunday dawned clear and warm. We went over for a breakfast of pancakes and after eating and saying bye to our friends (new and old) we headed back to break down camp and head back home.
All agreed that it was a fun weekend and we are looking forward to this campout again next year.
