Jack,

Sorry about the tire. Since I have been religious about keeping 65 lbs COLD tire pressure, I have never had another Marathon problem.

Fred

Rivet More Branson Photos

Saturday featured a polishing demonstration. Wow, what a lot of work, but the results speak for themselves. The demo trailer has unpolished areas that are so oxidized that when someone up the hill before the demo was trying to point it out to someone, they kept asking, “The painted one down there?” We couldn’t see the polished sections from there.

There was also a very nice polished unit just up the hill.

Makes me glad that ’83s have a type of Al that doesn’t polish well.

Hey Gene,

Amy came up with this: Branson "Spring is in the AIR" Rally.

Early April looks promising as Easter is at month's end.

Rivet The Chili Cook-off

The high event of Saturday evening was the Chili Cook-off! Fame and fortune were at stake. The fate of the free world seemed to hang in the balance. Smack talk rivaled wrasslin’. (2air came up to billberk’s and said that his chili was really goulash and should be served with pasta) Sorry, no pics of that, but I only had a still camera.

Steve gathered the contestants’ chili and put them in identical cups for the judges.

There was also a great spread of other dishes to complement the chili, for the rest of us anyway.

The suspense built – who will win?

The key collector, the artist, the entertainment, the face of humble acceptance, and the face of pure chili evil.

Rivet The Judges’ Verdict

Fortunately, the Cook-off was blessed with an august panel of judges who made their decision seriously (if not exactly soberly).

The crowd waited, spellbound with anticipation.

Finally, the results were announced.

The trophy was awarded and victory was celebrated! Bill’s goulash was vindicated and officially proclaimed the victorious chili.

Still to come, the rest of the evening including the door prizes.

The picture Bill posted of 2air with the rose colored glasses hid the true evil.
Note the glowing red eyes.

A Big Thanks to Steve and Amy

Just a note to say thanks to Steve and Amy... This was our first Airstream rally of any kind and it was a winner. My wife Laynah and I had a great time and we met a lot of nice people from all over the country. We are looking forward to the next rally and hope to visit with a lot of new friends.

Thanks again....And to all who have pictures on the site, they are great.

Tim

Rivet First of the Door Prizes Photos

Not the first, but certainly one that catches the spirit of the event. Any of you who doubted 2air’s radioactive chili should see this. I’m not even goin’ to talk about that 3rd hand (!!!) sprouting from his back. Check out the evil glow from his eyes!

On another note, the excellent artwork on the table is Artstream’s (Michael Depraida) print. I was also lucky enough to get a door prize, so that’s what I chose. Thanks Artstream for donating it!!! Everyone else should check out his work.

Ok, the evil glow was really a tiny corner of the streetlight (I think), but could a coincidence (?) be more appropriate?

You really need to view this one full size, click on the image.

Really, trust me.

Really!

Rivet More Photographs

I will have more tonight. I have several of the door prizes and some more miscellaneous trailer and people photographs. I will put together a CD with all the photographs for you.

Thanks for the Karma from both you and Susan (Alumatube). I really had a great time.
