Pics

Hey Lawchick,

I'm loving all the pics you posted,I'm so glad everyone took and posted pics. Emilye and I didn't take any for ourselves.
I saw the FOD rally in AR, it starts the day I fly in from work so it dosent look like Ill make that one either. But I promise Ill make it up there to y'all one day.
Y'all were to much fun not to camp with again. If I get up that way Ill have to tell my high dollar azz cat story
Hope to see y'all around soon.
I'm trying to work out some details for another rally.

That High Dollar Azz Cat story did me in. My ribs were actually sore from laughing so hard. But, it isn't even very funny when I try to repeat it. You make it great. I think, um, a few drinks, helps you do your best relating of that story! LOL

That "Dag-gone cat." LOL Unforgettable.

Hi all! Just want to say that K & I had a blast at last month's PW rally. It was great meeting fellow Airstreamers and seeing all the vintage, as well as new, Airtreams. I was a bit under the weather with a cold, but I'm over it now and I'm ready to hit the trails again. You can count us in for the spring rally, fer sure. Thanks to all for posting the pics. See ya'll again soon (I hope).

Spring Rally

Figured Id give everyone an update on the spring rally situation.

Seems like everything I try and plan I run into a wall.

Mrs. S contacted Martin Dies Jr Park and they weren't to helpful. There website for reservations is a nightmare. Beings its a state park they wont hold any sites and beings April is peak season they know their sites will get filled so there not to worried about a rally.

So I moved a little further down and tired to book something for Sandy Creek which is another nice park just down the road. They are almost fully BOOKED from March to April.

Mill Creek Park which is where the last rally was held is open but I was trying to do something a little different. Some folks didnt like the railings there, some sites where farther apart, and I was trying to find something with a enclosed shelter. They would be more than glad to have us back, Mrs. Arlene told us before we left to come back anytime.

While we were having the rally we spoke with several couples about Canton Texas Trade Days and Mrs. S is in favor of having a rally for that.
They do not offer discounts on group rallies during the trade days but they will for non-trade day rallies. They are more than willing to hold a rally for us and said they would help with the planning. Mill Creek RV Resort is the name of the park and its a gorgeous park with loads of amenities, full hookups, bar, firepit, dog park, nature trails, swimming pool, large pond with paddle boats, and loads of other neat stuff. Check it out Mill Creek RV Resort.

So this is what its down to....

Option 1 = Mill Creek at Lake Sam Rayburn April 19-22

Option 2 = Mill Creek RV Resort in Canton, Texas during Canton Trade Days for shopping. March 1st - 4th
(Guys dont be afraid to sign up for this, I hate to shop but I love Canton Trade Days theres something for everyone here)

Option 3 = Mill Creek RV Resort in Canton, Texas NON-Trade Days
Maybe a live band and gathering at this awesome park and organizing fun and games. April 19th - 22nd
If we do it in the NON-Trade Days we get the sites for 30 dollars a night if we have 10 or more trailers.

Post your vote for what option if intrested and I can go from there. The sooner we get a response the sooner I can move forward.

Canton is closer for us and sounds fun. Non trade days seems less hectic, but if everyone else wants shopping, I'm sure that'll be fun too.

Option 3 would be the more relaxed Airstream orientated event.
Im more in that favor as well.
I like to get to know the folks that come out.

The shopping option would burn everyone out pretty quick, then off to bed they'd go. Thats what I do.

Canton is just down the road a bit for us... First Monday or not we'll go! It's definitely quieter there when it's NOT Trade Days, so for a weekend that focuses more on the rally itself I think that would be better, and there are 3x as many of those weekends to choose from.

Really the only thing that wasn't great about Mill Creek on Sam Rayburn was the railing issue, but we learned quickly to be careful in the dark and it was no problem. As far as doing that vs. a new park, well, the park is definitely nice enough to visit again but the best part of the rally was the company, we could go to the same park again and again to spend time w/ that crowd!

Nice find Joshua. Looks like Mill Creek RV Resort in Canton would be great, especially since its only an hour from us.... nice. Olga and I vote for the non trade days weekend.... definately would be more relaxed and I got the sense that lots of folks at the Fall Rally really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out in planning, given that we are so close.

Dana

Thanks Dana, You were a great help with the last rally taking care of the name tags and signs. Ill be sure to keep you in mind. We got a few folks taking intrest, so if we get a few more yes votes Ill email or call the park and confirm the dates then start a new offical rally thread.

I agree I noticed that everyone seemed to enjoy the relaxed theme. Although there were a couple request for prizes at the next event.
I got some things in mind, this would be a great park to host a rally in.
Also something I forgot to mention earlier if everyone hasnt noticed yet, the park has wifi, its in the middle of town with stores just down the road, and phone service with AT&T was full 3G. All some of the folks seemed to miss.
