I will also be at springfield parked adjacent to the airstream tent. WBCCI 1611. Look forward to seeing the forums crowd. Will be there from 6/20-7/5.

Visitors are welcome in the campground, at the airstream tent, dealer sales area, etc. You would need tickets to go into town and attend some of the scheduled events at the convention center. They may have visitor passes at the convention center, I don't know for sure.

We'll stay until the end, July 4, or until our A/C conks out!

I think that's called a pay back for everybody having to come out your way a couple of years ago!

It'll even be worse for you next year in Salem, OR, can't get much further away from Vermont!

See you there!

We'll will be there in the 30 amp vintage section and should arrive in the parade with 47WeeWind, Insideout, and Coloradobus.

I will be there 6/23 - 7/4. 1969 Caravel in the 'poor folks' section (3 amp).
I think a get-together is a great idea!

2005 International...I'm going, are you?

If all goes as currently planned, I will be there with my '78 Minuet 6.0 Metre and Cadillac towcar -- in fact, I should already be in East Saint Louis, IL for the beginning of the Wagon Wheels Caravan. Career obligations got in the way, and my departure has been delayed until either tomorrow or Monday.

My mechanic finally was able to give the Cadillac a clean "bill of health" for the trip so I am hoping that it will make its first extended trip with the Minuet this summer. The temperamental car did, however, manage to short out a brand new Custom Autosound stereo less than ten minutes after it was professionally installed.

I see in an article the Blue Beret (June issue) that we are being asked not to leak graywater on the ground at International, due to the risk of contaminating the caverns below. (See page 21, third column.)

Does anyone know if there will be any provision for vintage trailers to dump graywater anywhere nearby, or is this one of those "unfunded mandates" which leaves us to figure out how to exist for a week without showering?

Bob Herman (VAC prez) said in the May VAC newsletter that there will be a sewer access point for the dumping of blue boys in the VAC 3 amp section. The 3 amp section and the 30 amp section are separated by an electrical substation.

Arrow Can't go but courtesy parking available....

If you are coming to Missouri from the West or Northwest, please keep us in mind for an overnight stay. Just 20 minutes north of KC. Not hard to find. 42 acres of country peace and quiet..... unless you consider the nail gun at the son's building site, or the neighbor kid's newest "souped up" truck, or the tree frogs, crickets, and hoot owls.

Just email or pm your plans.

Have fun at Springfield....

Does anybody KNOW the official dates for the rally? The WBCCI site says both 6/28/05 to 7/4/05 and 6/28/05 to 7/5/05.

From what I've seen...there are events planned all day on the 4th so if you want to stay through those, you would most likely stay the night of the 4th & leave on the 5th.

Well, I usually try to have the button image relate to the rally location or theme. That doesn't mean that I don't appreciate needing an easily recognizable button.

Since the theme of this rally is FUN FELLOWSHIP ADVENTURE - THE HEART OF WBCCI, here's the button...
