Bunkie Boucherie 2018 - March 23-25 - Central Louisiana

12

Bunkie (bun-kee): A farming community in the North end of the Cajun Prairie in Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana, named after a little girl who referred to her toy monkey as her "Bunkie" ( http://bunkie.com/GoodStuff/About.Bunkie.htm )

Boucherie (boo-shuh-ree): – A community butchering of a pig which involved several families.... done in late fall to provide meat throughout the winter.... lasts several days....with a big dinner on the last day.... ( http://www.cajundaughters.com/cajun-dictionary-b/ )

Location: Ripley's Lane - Believe It or Not!

Dates: March 23-25, 2018

No, we're really not planning to kill a hog (nor a Hawg), but Ripley's Lane is just off Slaughterhouse Road and I suspect there will be a lot of "chewing the fat" and we'll likely conclude with a big dinner on Saturday evening. This will be another joint sidecar gathering with the TURD's.

Rally central will be at the home of Larry & Barbara at 121 Ripley's Lane in Bunkie, Louisiana. It's easy to find as Ripley's Lane is, literally, their driveway.

Camping: On-site with a bath/shower available. We should be able to accommodate limited electric service if needed.

If you prefer a motel or RV hook-ups, please make your own lodging reservations:

Motels: All-Star Inn 1 mile away - 318-346-8113 or Howard Johnson motel 7 miles West - 318-346-6866

Note: The All-Star Inn is a small motel just down the street the rally site - please make your reservations early.

RV Park: Gator Grounds RV Park on Golf Course Road 6 miles Northeast - 318-295-4030 (https://gatorgrounds.org/)

Preliminary Plans include (subject to change, of course):

Friday:

11:30 Meet-Up for Lunch at Lea's Lunch Room in Lecompte (20 miles North)
followed by 50 mile tour of fish hatchery and local bayou back roads

6:30 Potato Bar Supper at rally central

17 days and counting fast.
Spring is blossoming here in Louisiana.

 

Preliminary head-count is 35 and growing daily.
 

And Étouffée just might be on the menu.

I plan to be there and camp. This will be my 1st. Sidecar Get-together, so be gentle. I'll be driving a rig I bought last year from one of your neighbors. This will also be the longest trip I've made on it, so I hope we both make it. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Bud...
