Exclamation Metro-Detroit Rally

Hello Everyone. My name is Sarah. I am 20 years old and a third generation Airstreamer. I am the host of the September of the rally for the WBCCI and I am also the secretary of the Metro-Detroit unit. I would like to extend an invention to everyone that will be in the area to attend my rally September 23-25th at Groveland Oaks.
So far we have a potluck dinner planned for Friday night,and a catered dinner for Saturday night. We also provide breakfast for Saturday and Sunday. Depending on the weather we also will have campfires Friday and Saturday nights.
For those of you not familiar with the area it is close to Great Lakes Crossing, Canterberry Village, historic downtown Holly, and the Rennaisance Festival will be going on that weekend. Or you can just hang-out at the park.
Our WBCCI unit is not like any other. We are a very laid back bunch of people that are in it for the fun of camping.
I truly hope that all of you can make it and I look forward to a weekend filled with fun.

We're in Lapeer, MI

I like the Port Huron idea. I would have voted but need an additional, interested and may attend line. I will follow this thread with interest. We haven't met any local Airstreamers yet.

There are quite a few nice places to camp nearby. It would be nice to get something that we can do close to home.
Please use the poll attached to this thread to let me know how many would be interested in attending something like this.
Maybe we can talk to Moraine View folks in giving some suggestions and tips to plan a successful get-together...
It does not have to be anything extravagant. Just a little weekend outing.

We (The Metro Detroit WBCCI Unit) currently have a buddy rally planed for September at Grovland Oaks in Oakland County. We would like to invite any and all of you to attend our event and make this a Metro Detroit / Buddy / Airstream Foum Rally. We currently have a large goup site reserved , we feel we can accomadate a large or small turn out.

We are not your tipical WBCCI unit , not so much pomp and circumstance as most. We can post the details and handle the aragments if this is acceptable to you all.As this is a Buddy rally membership in the WBCCI is not required and not expcected.

I look foward to the oppertunity to meet fellow Airstreamers form Michigan and throughout the Midwest. Let me know if there is intrest. Our Host will also be posting here soon.

PS I love the AIR stickers, our Log in name ITOWAIR is also our linsense plate, we wanted to gett AIR for the trailer but it was already taken.
Jim and I were supposed to meet this afternoon and due to my father-in-law passing away, I have been helping my mother-in-law when she needs the help. Sorry, Jim.
Jim and I have agreed that the best thing to do is to try to get all of us at the WBCCI event AND get them to come to a forums get-together.
I think that sounds like a good idea.
It would be nice to get those in the Metro-Detroit unit interested in the forums and what they are all about AND get those of us that are not in the WBCCI to one of their events and maybe get us to join them.
I think that is a wonderful idea.
Jim, I will call you tomorrow(today actually) morning so we can get the ball rolling.
It seems like we are picking up a head of steam now!
I want to be able to show off my new axle! Two events are better than one for me to show it off at!

You are more than welcome to come along. Wait a minute... how can someone be "more than welcome"? Is that possible?
Anyway, you and your old car and trailer would be a spotlight event at anything we plan.
Thanks for the kudos on trying to plan this event.
Jim Mickle and I are both very excited about this. Jim brings his knowledge of other events like this with him. It is he whom I count on to really get me going in the right direction.

Well, I can tell that you are "wheel interested" by your choice of username! Man, I crack myself up!
The park has not been decided yet as Jim and I will sit down this weekend and get the ball rolling.
There are actually quite a few of is around the area. We just hide in the urban woodwork!

Well, let me be the first to formally invite you and your whole unit to the forums get-together that we will set up to be on a different date.
I am planning on attending your buddy rally. It sounds like it is going to be a blast! I know my five year old daughter will enjoy meeting and talking with everyone. 30 more years until she can run for the presidency!
Please let us all know here on the forums what it takes for us to register for your buddy rally in September. Feel free to post any information on this thread. I have no qualms about it.

Sorry to hear of your loss. We have been in similar circumstances. You have your work cut out for you.
We will look forward to being a part of the Forums gathering when you select a date. Put us down to attend, please. Two weekends traveling to Detroit will too much, but we look forward to meeting you all. We can compare notes on Argosy axles, etc. Ours has had some miles on it and is "holding up" just fine.
Larry and Lou

Hi Larry, Lou- I plan on going to the forum rally too, and probably with the kids. We should caravan, eh?

I got my brakes adjusted okay I think but I'd still like to stop by and have you check it out. I've only got 2 weeks until my East Coast trip though. Maybe if it stops snowing for the summer I can come over soon

Steve

Steve,
You are more than welcome at my home, buddy.
A caravan sounds like fun. Used to do it with my entire family when I was younger. All of us had Airstreams or Argosys.
I am going over to Jim Mickle's home right now. We are going to start figuring the where and when today.

Steve,
That sounds like a great idea. We would like to caravan. Maybe some other northern Ohioans will join us. I will PM Blucloud and see if he is interested too.

Let's give them our support, people.
I will be the first to say that the Patterson clan is ready and willing to attend both!
