Arrow Bownanza is set - April 2, 2022

After a little back and forth with hotels and the Brazos Center....we have finally worked out April 2nd for this year's Bownanza.

Location:
Brazos Center
3232 Briarcrest Dr
Bryan, TX 77802


Our timing for the event will be 7 am to 7pm. There is a prom there that night, so we will need to vacate at 7pm.

We have all our options open here for cooking

The Best Western is happy to have us return as well. They are offering a block of rooms until March 11th. The rate will be $101 for double queen, single king and king suites. Please don't wait too long to book your room, once they are gone....they are gone.

I thought the favorite Teams were
- Team Fishheads
- Team Fajita
- Team Bloody Mary
- Team Alligator/Gumbo/Gorditas
- Team Ribs
- Team Kids
- Team Chili
- Team Cabbage & Sausage
- Mary's Pavillion TBH Store
- Team desert
- Friday night gathering
- Saturday night cool down

Sure there are others missed on this list

That weekend should be good for us. This will be my first ĎNanza. My wife has questions though. How many women attend? Kid friendly? We have a 7, 2, and 5 month old.

Ok this is going to be my first year going. Already have the wife planning on it. So what’s the schedule look like? Is there a Friday night or Saturday night get together as well or is it just all on Saturday? If we want to help out a cooking team is there a list of teams needing things or help? Early I know.

The true diehards arrive Friday for an early start on libations, hugs and some grilled protein.
Be on the lookout for joining a team Saturday if you want. Each team is in charge of creating their own threads and gathering their own supplies. Some newbies choose not to join a team the first year so they can kinda have time to take in all the festivities and learn the ropes (i.e Teams).
If you can't have a good time at Nanza you just can't have a good time period!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
