Hey folks --

I finally got the 2008 Winfield photos up on our Website. Phil has much better flood pictures, but you may enjoy paging through these, just for the flavor.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Lin. Some handsome couples out there by the lake, but I liked James' tee shirt the best. The pictures of the evacuation were interesting to see after hearing so many stories about it.

Epilog: Muchelle's cousin from Winfield was here in Texas recently and he says that the city council is determined not to have another "Woodstock at the Lake" in 2009. They plan to enforce all the normal park rules – paid camping in designated spot only, quiet time after 10 PM, and a curfew.

That would be what I'd expected, and the "designated spot only" bit means that all the designated spots have already been reserved for next year's time period, if few enough of the regulars weren't completely demoralized by our invasion. Tenters might get in, but anything with wheels has to have the wheels on a slab in normal times; and all the slabs were full before anyone from WVA arrived last year.

We're still running into some who claim they intend to go back to Oxford instead of the the fairgrounds next year. They're all "really sure" that Oxford will welcome them back, but I haven't heard from the ones(?) who've actually checked that out with Oxford.

I don't think I've heard anyone hoping to go back to the auction barn though.

lol, I don't think you'll hear of anyone intentionally setting out to camp and the auction barn, though it was a good port in a storm this year. The folks who camped in Oxford only have nice things to say about it, and cuz says the good citizens of Oxford were happy to have so may tourists in town so who knows. I certainly expect Carp Camp and Front Porch Radio to be back on the Fairgrounds, but also expect some of the people who discovered Oxford this year to camp there next year.

Uncle Phil -

It actually has been people from the "Irish establishment" - including some from Carp Camp - that we've heard talking the most about camping at Oxford. (That could be because most of the people we've talked to are Carpers or "associated fringe-Irish loiterers.")

Rumors about this were circulating at the KBA outing (at Winfield in October) with one or two people asserting that "someone" is already making reservations for "a group" at Oxford. The only problem was that the various sources didn't show much agreement on who "someone" is or which group was making the plans, so it was hard to tell who knew something, who only "heard something" and who was just hoping out loud.

The lake might be attractive to some, since pets are allowed there; and a few people who've found out that it's a fairly comfortable campsite might try it for that reason. Pet boarding near Winfield is somewhat limited relative to the demand, and fairly expensive. We were told a few years back when we considered it for that reason that there was no space available - for that year or for the next.

I wouldn't expect significant numbers to be able to camp at the lake under "ordinary rules," due to the full-booking of available spaces by regular lake "residents." Oxford could draw a fairly large group, but it will depend on whether Oxford is organized enough to do some realistic planning and get the necessary community agreement on what the rules are (and which of them will be enforced).

John -
There should be a lot of "associated fringe-Irish loiterers" here in March for NTIF. I'll ask around then.

Oxford does have advantages including two big, concrete-floor picnic pavillions and is only 10 minutes from the fairgrounds (half the the time it takes me to drive into town to work everyday). I expect you are right, Oxford could draw a good crowd but only if they get organized and work it.
