Family Reunions

Become the hero of your reunion by staying at Eagle Canyon Hideaway.

Your reunion is around the corner, and booking cabins for your friends and family is now the easiest, fastest part of the planning. With a variety of cabins, RV sites, and tent sites we have accommodations for everyone. This is also the perfect place for Weddings, Anniversaries, Church and Business groups, or just a vacation with family and friends.

 

We hope to make your planning easier by giving you a few suggestions:

 

Holiday

Plan your family reunion around a holiday that has special significance to your family. Since many people get off work for some of these holidays, that provides an added benefit. Some holidays include: St. Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras, Easter, Oktoberfest, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.


Wedding

Make your wedding simple, beautiful, and inexpensive by having a sunset wedding on the beach, or at Eagle Canyon Hideaway.

  • Invitation: Put an engagement photo of the couple on the invitation. Better yet a picture of them at Lake McConaughy.
  • Food: A barbecue, chips, salads, deserts. Have a pot luck, where everyone contributes by bringing their favorite dish.
  • Activities: At a beachside reception, you can play “pass the shell”, where a large shell is passed around and guests “listen” for some advice from the other world. Once they get a piece of advice (really something they think of themselves) they share it with the bride and groom, either verbally, or it can be written into a book for the couple.
  • Decorations: Choose the brides maids colors and decorate the meeting room.

Bayside golf is also a beautiful place to have a sunset wedding on the green. (just 2 miles from us)


Anniversary

An Anniversary with us (a fiftieth, for example) can be a special gift to the happy couple.


Mexican Fiesta


Hawaiian Luau

Can’t afford to go to Hawaii? Well the Hawaiian Luau family reunion is the next best thing. This reunion works best if you have access to a swimming pool, (and we do) or some other place you can get yourself wet.


Outer Space

If you have some relatives that have trouble fitting in, here’s a great way to give them an excuse.


Safari

Everyone likes being chased by lions and tigers, and fighting with mosquitoes the size of cats.  Well, get as close as you can by having a safari reunion.


Under the Sea

“There’ll be no accusations, just friendly crustaceans, under the sea.” Ah, the underworld. Made popular by the Hans Christian Andersen story and profitable by the Disney movie, “The Little Mermaid”. Here’s some starters to help you out.


Western

A western theme is very popular for family reunions.  You even get to dress up in cowboy clothes.

  • Food: Barbecue, baked beans (yipes! Watch out!), corn on the cob.
  • Activities: Campfire (singing around, roasting), square dancing,  a bit of calf roping (with stationary fake calf).
  • Games: Sack race, wheelbarrow race, tug of war, other old classics.
  • Dress: Flannel western shirt and blue jeans, ten-gallon cowboy hats, tall boots, big gold belt buckles with cow skulls and bandannas.
  • Decorations: Various versions of false cacti, cattle skulls, horses, those howling coyotes that are suddenly so popular.
  • Awards: Most authentic western outfit, best roper, best expectorating (seed-spitting)

 

So plan your get together now and make a memory that will last a lifetime!
