Officially, the 2007 WBCCI International Rally runs from June 27-July 4th, however MANY people arrive a couple of days prior to the "opening ceremony" on the 27th to attend some of the business meetings or to help out with the set up of the rally. I believe some folks start arriving right after Memorial Day weekend! Of course, the majority arrive about the 23rd - 26th. I'm planning on attending the IBT meeting on the 26th, so will arrive in Perry on the 25th after 2 or 3 days driving from Denver.

I understand International Rallies are not for everybody, but I happen to enjoy them as a part of our Airstream experience. I much prefer the informal gaterings or VAC Rallies which incorporate many of the activities you mention above. But as a VAC officer, I am participating in both and trying to encourage more levity on the International level.

You wanna have a good time? Come by the VAC area at an International during Happy Hour which usually keeps on going and turns into an After Glow well into the night!

Shari

Shari and Paula, great input. Happy Hour is definitely on the agenda!

I love the idea of going to Jackson Center, I think we could find lots to do or make our own fun, course I think with such nice women we could have fun anywhere to tell you the truth!

Sue had some cool ideas about organizing the rally and Jamie has organizing experience too!

If the date is ok to change for others thats fine by me. It would be great if we could get as many women as possible. Just so long as I don't have to tow in ice/snow I'm game! Hereabouts May and early June are spoken for, but July and August look pretty open for me.

Passing on an e-mail with a good idea.

Mrs Towdaddy sent the following to me... and I think that this sounds
a lot nicer than the terraports at Airstream proper.
For your consideration:

Hi Steph and all Rivette's,

The original dates are good for me. I can do boon-docking but would
prefer hookups. I'll go along with whatever is decided. Where would
Airstream put us up? My main concern would be dumping. Something to
consider...Lakewood Village Resort, 14296 Cemetery Road, Wapakoneta,
OH 45895-9706, (419) 738-5000, 15.32 miles, 17 minutes from
Airstream. It has 137 full hookup sites and 66 partial, 30 AMPS,
maximum length 50', clubhouse, pavilion, snack bar, game room, indoor
pool with 2 spas, two lakes, mini-golf, pedal boats, fishing and
horseshoe, shuffleboard and basketball courts, and dump station. The
site did not give a rate but it was rated on RV Park Reviews.com.
Our family tried a mexican restaurant in Wapakoneta when we were
there in August '06 to see our trailer on the line at Airstream. It
was excellent! My preferences are to keep things simple. The tour
and seminar sound excellent. I look forward to meeting everyone,
touring each others trailers, and swopping ideas. I am SO excited.
Let me know if there is something I can do to help.

Vickie (Mrs. Towdaddy)

This sounds great to me! It's close enough to Airstream to do the things we want to do there, and gives us a nice place to kick back and relax when we're not out and about.

I'm in - who has the biggest TV we could all pile in.

Sorry I have been a bit off line with other projects these last couple of days!

I am cool on pretty much any date - but Shari does have a very good point - the International Rally does take the Airstream Inc's attention - so an alternate date might be prudent. either the weekend before or after and possibly those Rivettes with extra time on their hands could make a little road trip to pop into the Rally as a day guest or overnight guest??? We could all converge onto Shari's site - I hear that she gives really great "period" parties.

I am sorry for the confusion - I thought I saw somewhere that Airstream Inc had or were going to build a really neat park - with full hook ups and the works and were calling them pods of sorts - I think I even saw an artistic rendition - did I or was I dreaming???

All great ideas and I can pitch in where ever I can from up here???

Smile Lakewood Village Resort

Thanks Vickie, Paula, and Jamie, for the input about Lakewood Village, I'll call tomorrow and see if we would have an opportunity there, that is if there are no restrictions and it is a membership AOR/C2C campground so would they let us in without being members. I'll be sure to post findings.

Sharon, thanks for helping us to get the ball rolling, I really love the idea of going back to the mother ship with the rivettes!

Shari, I surely hope we will all meet up at some time! Please keep sharing your great rally ideas with us!

Paula -- I think all the Ohio wineries are located up in the Northwest part of the state so there probably aren't any around Jackson Center to drop in on. But why don't we pick up a small assortment of the Buckeye State's offerings for our own little wine tasting and see what they have to offer? Their finest, and some two buck(eye) chuck maybe? Could be fun. If I take the northern route to get to the rally, I'll look for wineries, and wine stores when I'm coming through that area.

Hmmm this is sounding better and better - I might be bringing the larger trailer - don't ask right now why - but I can pick up lots of wine on the way!!!!!!!!! Forget Airstream INC after the wine tasting I am likely to pull a Carol and come home with a brand new one

And now I know why some are really into the dump stations or full hook ups Two buck(eye) Chuck! I was sort of wonder how on earth one single woman could produce over 13 gallons of poop in a single weekend - for the smallest black tank I think out there.....

Sharon -- maybe we need to try to rendezvous pre-rally up in the Ohio wine country area. Anybody else comin' through there?

Hey Rivettes,

Another option for consideration...I found a winery in northwest Ohio. It is Stoney Ridge Winery, 07144 County Road Road 16, Bryan, OH 43506. According to Mapquest it is approximately 36 miles out of my way to go there. Actually, it would be a good stop after 3 hours on the road. I included the address so that any that wanted to check out a route could do so. I wish it was June already.

Vickie
