It's All About the Weather...SUN!
FROM THE GOLF CART
My son said he was going to take up meditation.....well, I guess it's better than sitting around doing nothing.
Well, our race was pretty successful. We had about 70 sign up for it. I was the first one to cross the finish line. Of coarse, I was in my golf cart. Nobody told me you actually had to run to get a prize.
Many thanks to all helped at the water stations, monitoring the course, and helping with the food and beverages. There were a lot of familiar faces from races in the past. A special thanks to our own Ted for all he put into laying out the run, putting up direction signs, and he handled the awards. I know what a pain it is to get it all together.
This coming weekend is supposed to be beautiful, so come on out and enjoy it before the cold weather hits us. You know it's gonna come.
Hope to see you soon,
FROM THE CRUISE DECK
Fall is in the air! Don’t let the lack of 100º weather keep you from coming out in the months to come. So much to do. And we have a tournament coming up on the 8th of October. Get your Frisbee wrist warmed up. Using laundry baskets as the ‘holes’, and a Frisbee as the ball, this should be a fun game. The course will be on and around flag pole hill. Be sure to join us!
I’ve had a few questions about the NudieFeud games coming up in January. A bunch of our people are already starting to get prepared. The game is based on the TV show Family Feud. But the teams are by street, with 5 members on each team. There are 5 streets at Armadillo:
Cyril down to Donnie/Dottie
Scotty/Annetta curving around to Clark/Laura
Jesse/Heather down to Jerry/Cheryl
Roger/Cathy’s down to Lowell/Johnna
Kevin/Janet down to Ray and Carolyn
Tenters, Renters, and Visitors
are free agents, and can participate with any street, as long as they have not played this game on another team.
Same is true if you have guests at your camper. Some streets may have enough wanting to play, there could be two or more teams per street!
Lots of fun things coming up! We love seeing so many people participating in these. Mark these dates down on your calendar, and always check the Armadillo Newsletter. Prizes (and most importantly) CHAMPION bracelets are awarded to all winners…
Redneck Frisbee Golf
Indoor Nerf Dodgeball
Indoor Team Bowling
(2017 bracelet season)
Indoor Redneck Basketball
In case of inclement weather, we offer indoor tournaments
COMING THIS WINTER:
START ORGANIZING YOUR STREETS NOW!
As always, thank you all for your participation and/or spectating these games. Getting together with our family is the whole idea. It makes us all better by being together!

FROM ANYWHERE BUT THE OFFICE
I've notice that the other Blogs are paragraphs full of information. Mine will be a bit more "direct" and "to the point" That's easier for me. So here it goes...
OCTOBERFEST PARTY IS CANCELLED The Octoberfest Street Party planned for October 1st has been delayed by the Outlaws. Updated information will be shared at a later date.
ONLINE PAYMENTS PREFERRED
In the near future, we will no longer be taking checks as a form of payment. The online and secured processing of credit/debit cards to pay your invoice is both immediate and accurate. It makes both sides very happy. Please consider using the PAY INVOICE button now.
UNMANNED OFFICE PHONE
I know one of the issues that folks have with the office is the unmanned phone. Since the office is not a "full-time" position and I at times am either cleaning pools, cutting down trees, dragging the roads, or getting supplies and necessities, the phone seems to "never be answered." I am working on a solution that is better than forwarding the phone. Hopefully it will be implemented within a month or so.
WE ARE A FAMILY CLUB. RESPECT THAT.
Issues have been made known to the office regarding occasional inappropriate behavior by members at the dance. Armadillo Resort is a Family-oriented club and insists that its members adhere to the rules as stated on the website and member/resident contract. We are also a member in good standing with the American Association for Nude Recreation and adhere to its rules of appropriate conduct. If you wish to behave otherwise, please be prepared to forfeit your membership and site.
UNSIGHTLY SITES NEED ACTION...NOW
Some of you may not know that it has rained enough for your sites to be overgrown by knee-high weeds. These sites need to be taken care of immediately. If need be, I can email a picture or two of your site. I took pictures the other day. Some sites look extremely messy and are unsightly and embarrassing. This is not good and those that rent/live around these sites are reporting extreme frustration and even anger over the situation. Dottie is willing to mow sites for a charge. This would be a business deal between you and her, if so chosen.
