Check-in at your favorite rally point, sample Class VI beverages paired with pogey bait, conduct a public art reconnaissance mission, and have a great time in Salado, TX.
Buy your tickets prior to April 25 and you will be treated like a general officer and get a one hour extra general officer VIP head start at 1 pm. Tickets cost $29.95 each for adults 21 and over and $5.95 for kids. Adult tickets will include 4 samples of beer along with an MRE inspired snack from the Pig & Pickle and 4 samples of wine paired with a chow hall inspired snack. Kid tickets are meant for the little ones and will include a juice box and a cookie.
At check-in you will receive an OPORD giving you your mission to do a public art reconnaissance in Salado, TX and your first round of rations. The OPORD will be created by June Ritterbusch, owner of Salado Winery and former Army Aviation Officer and KD Hill, owner of Barrow Brewing and former Air Force Linguist. Both are not only #FermentationFriends and #BrewingBuddies, but also lovers of public art. Check points will be at public art locations throughout Salado where you will take selfies with the art to prove you visited them. Don’t be a Blue Falcon, help each other find the check-ins. When you arrive at your end point, you will show the pictures in order to earn your second round of rations.
Want to go above and beyond? Aim High? Get a selfie with all 10 of the sculptures listed on the OPORD and be entered for a chance to win the ultimate bag of swag from Salado Winery and Barrow Brewing.
Master stone carvers, Bob Ragan and Matthew Johnson, will be on site at each camp working on current projects. Feel free to chat with the artists and learn more about their craft.
