									Western Country Cousin Picnic Camp Out and Officer Installation 2012
On July 24 thru 29, 2012 we will have our annual picnic camp out in Sandy Beach RV Park, Rio
Vista California. This is a centrally located park on the Sacramento River. I have made and
confirmed reservations for sites 11 and 13.

RIO VISTA is 31 miles South of Sacramento, CA and is on the Sacramento River. Antioch and
Pittsburg are within a 30 minute drive.

Reservations can now be made (only 6 months in advance). Hopefully our group will rent #9
and surrounding sites. These are very large sites with room for at least 5 tents each. One or two
RVs may be parked on pavement in front of each site’s grassy area. Limit of ten people per site.
Rate is $18.00 for senior/disable ($30.00 non-senior/disable). Additional vehicles are $10.00.
Day use is $5.00.

Sites 9, 11, and 13 are in shady tree area for shelter from sun and wind.
