Thanks for the shameless plug, Carol!
It will be here before we know it. My how time flies!
I do suggest that all who are attending to please heed Carol's advice about the picture. We have decided that all who do not submit a photo for their sign will be set up with the life-like cardboard cutout of me!
It has been brought to my attention that there are some that will be attending that would like to change the name of the event from "Airstreamforums Rally" to "Lou-A-Palooza 1.0". You know who you are, so I will not embarass you by mentioning names! I considered the name change but then decided that the cardboard cutouts would be too large an expense.
Carol has suggested that I do a stand-up routine at the pavilion. I can make an appearance but I will need a few good hecklers in the audience! Please let me know if you can fill one of those positions?
The potluck is scheduled for Saturday. I will be preparing my "World Famous Smokin' Lou's Yardbird"! This does involve some secrecy while preparing and I must ask all of those who wish to pay homage to me or the Minuet to do so on the streetside of the trailer during that time.
I know it will be hard to resist the urge to bow in front of me and chant "Oh Great Argosy Jedi your wish is my command". Although that is nice you can just keep repeating how awesome my Minuet is compared to all of the unpainted Argosys.
As Carol mentioned the spots are on a first-come first-served basis. I will try to accomodate all who would love to park next to me so we will have raffle to see who the lucky winners will be! All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the "Paint an Unpainted Argosy Fund".
I will be sure to bring the velvet ropes for the guided tour of the Minuet. With the high demand and the short amount time to tour all 19'3" of the Minuet. Please be patient and wait your turn.

Man, am I having fun with this! I have got to stop! I have gone on too long! What a hoot!
It is gonna be a fun time though! I promise I will behave!
Please come one out and join us. It will be a great time no matter how many are there but the more the merrier!
Please let Carol or I know the names of the attendees. I seem to have misplaced my list! DOH!
If there is anything special that you would like to do or bring please let all of us know!

All:
Carol and I have decided to get everyone that is attending the rally an "Airstream" type gift. We have already picked it out and will be ordering them this week.
If you are sitting on the fence about whether you can go or not, now would be a good time to register. We are ordering some extras but once those run out we will have to give you an IOU!
Get crackin'!

Otisville is not far from me but I don't expect my GT to be ready for camping by then. Will visitors be welcome if I stop in to visit y'all?

Roger,
You are very welcome to join us.
My Mom and brother are coming up to see us on Saturday.
Just let them know that you are coming in to visit Carol Baidinger or Lou Patterson.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks for the invite Carol and Lou. I'll plan on it. Thanks also Carol for the kind words about my home town. Frankenmuth is a small tourist town with a German theme. There's always something going on in town...Bavarian festival, beer festival, classic car shows, horse and buggy rides, river boat cruises, beer festival, German style chicken dinners, year around Christmas store, Jellystone RV park with fun for kids of all ages, etc. Did I mention the beer festival?

Thanks for trying to "rally" support for the forums rally with the Metro-Detroit WBCCI.
I was wondering if there are any plans already in place for the September buddy rally for your unit?

We took a drive to the rally site today.

It was a leisurely drive for us to Otisville through Davidson from our house in Lapeer. However avoid construction delays on I-75 and US-23. Here is a link to Michigan's Department of Transportation for alternate routes. http://www.michigan.gov/mdot/

The grounds of the Covenant Hills facility are just beautiful . I shot a few pictures while exploring the area and thought I would share them with you. The large pavillion has just been screened in and it's one of the nicest I have ever seen. Our potluck will be as comfortable as it will be fun! There is plenty to do, as well as plenty of places to relax and enjoy the scenery. Cudos to Lou for finding this gem and hosting this event.

For those of you who have not as yet registered, there is space available for you.


Follow this link for more pictures of the site and maps of the campgrounds and complex. http://www.pbase.com/baidinc/covenant_hills

Due to some changes in our vacation plans we are once again considering attending this Rally. What are the specifics? Are people showing up early on Friday, or after work? Are there any organized events planned other than the Pot Luck? And what's the deal with the Pot Luck - when is it and is there any specific type of dish we'd need to bring? Do you know how many forumers are planning to attend? If we sign up soon, will we still get a spot with the rest of the group?

Hey, I just want you all to know that if it weren't for the fact that we had to alter our vacation plans such that they overlapped this rally, we'd be attending. I have gotten to know Lou from his helpful hints on air conditioners and Carol clued me in to the Fantastic Fan people. So I hope you have a great time and I'll try to make it next year!

John
