Solar Eclipse

Total Eclipse 2024 Rally in Lampasas, Texas

Saturday, April 6th through Tuesday, April 9th, 2024

Hosts: Leon and Janet Hauck

Please join the 4CU for the last chance (in most) of our lifetimes to experience a total eclipse of the sun in Lampasas, Texas.

The rally dates are arrival on Saturday, April 6th, 2024, through departure on Tuesday, April 9th, 2024, with the total eclipse occurring on Monday, April 8th, 2024.  At a length of 4 minutes 26 seconds, eclipse totality will be almost double the duration of the 2017 eclipse, and Lampasas is in an optimal area of the path offering almost the maximum possible time of totality.  The next total solar eclipse visible in the United States will occur in 2044.

The venue we have chosen is Texas Legato Winery in Lampasas, Texas, which is about 60 miles northwest of Austin.  This venue is a Harvest Hosts location. 

There is a three-night minimum stay and it is dry camping.  There are some flush toilets.  We will have access to the full outdoor kitchen area that is covered by the patio.  

Black Dog Friday will perform live music on Sunday and Monday night.  A different local food truck will be available on Saturday and Sunday night.  On Monday an award-winning barbecue team will prepare a Texas-style barbecue of smoked brisket (information to purchase advanced tickets forthcoming).  The wine tasting room and bar will be open with wine available for sale.

A price of $500 per rig for the three-day minimum stay will be paid directly to the venue.  Spaces are filling up very quickly.  Those who hope to attend should sign up now.

Aside from the venue pricing, the 4CU rally fee is $20 per person to cover:

  • Two days continental breakfast 
  • One day hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, toast), brunch beverages
  • A set of CE and ISO Certified Sunglasses for each attendee
