Thanks
Friday, we do beanies and weenies or anything you like...very, very low key while folks are arriving.
Sat.-Let the games begin- Lunch on your own. 2:00-It was Open House/Happy Hour. Everyone had a snack/beverage...whatever at their trailer to pass out to those who came for open house. Open House = everyone walks as a group from trailer to trailer to see what great ideas everyone has put into their home on wheels.

6:00ish-Sat., at the potluck, last year, we all brought some kind of item(s) to raffle off. It can be something new that is "trailer" themed, an AS part or piece, a handmade item, a craft etc. etc. etc. Then we all buy tickets and put tickets into cups in front of the item you would like to win. After dinner ticket numbers are pulled and the FUN continues! I founds some cool "aluminum" items to put in this year.
Potluck- everyone brings their own tableservice, berverages, a meat, and a dish to share. And we eat CORN...and drink recipe! Right, Ralph?

Well, I just can't let that casual description that Loudruff gave remain "un-commented"...

Here is what really happens.....

Friday: Everyone gets together a has an amazing time telling stories, drinking their favorite beverage, and telling the same bad jokes as lat year. Around midnight, everyone laughs as that guy from Ohio shows up late again.......

Saturday: Wake up, start eating. Try to clean up trailer to look presentable. Do something fun. The open house is always fun.

OK, now for the potluck. This ain't your normal potluck! An amazing amount of diverse, high quality food will be provided by your fellow Airstreamers. I'm still trying to figure out how some people prepare these types of dishes. This is a "not to be missed" buffet!

The raffle is equally great. Last year the prizes ranged from small toys to a new bicycle! I won a trunk bumper for my trailer! No where else by at metro-Detroit would this happen!

Can you tell I'm really looking forward to this?!

This always a high light, and my favorite part! Last year I won $20.00 betting his arrival time.

And we get to laugh at the guy from Ohio Who arrives way late,way after dark and then parks cross-wise of his site. Well,at least he didn't hit nuffin. I can't emphize enough what fun we have had in past yrs. Dan's rite,I also was amaze at the variety of dishes that seemed to come out of thin air and were delicious. You have to admit,some are just food wizards.
And I think we saw the luckiest guy in Airstream history (U KNOW WHO U ARE) he seem to win everything in sight.
It was great fun and I am glad I didn't miss one minute of it.
I can't hardly wait either Dan.

Look here, some of us were up at the crack of dawn and were amazed by the path of distruction left by you un-chaperoned oldies! Besides, us going to bed left the mosquitos to feast upon you!Hmm, on second thought, it seems there may be more "younguns" this year. You may be ousted yet!

Hi,
After reading the posts about possibly having the youngins take over and oust the oldies from the late night fire tending, I am wondering if I will be part of the ousting or the ousted. As a virgin metro-detroit rallier, I have no idea which side someone in their mid 30's would be on.

Last year

I am pretty sure you will be a "youngin". Larry and I are early 60s. We are in the "other" bunch usually. But time will tell!!!!

Good question...come to think about it, I am not sure what side I am on anymore.

Is there a don't ask, don't tell group? If you stuck with the oldsters you would definitely be a youngin. Of course if you are one of the children even 20 something might seem old. All relative. Age doesn't matter unless you are cheese!
