Will there be a forums get-together at this International? I don't think the one at Salem materialized, but I did meet several of you at the vintage tent and the Save Wally get-together and at Hunter's. I have been to Bret's and Eddie always made buttons. I have a collection.

If you plan it, they will come!

Take charge, pick a date, name a location & let everybody know ~

It does sound like it would be interesting from that stand point, but we weighed the options and decided on our usual summer plans. Maybe the next time it is on the east coast of perhaps in the middle of the country. I just can't manage enough time off at one time to make it to the west coast.

That's why it moves around every year...gives everybody a chance every couple of years.

Hi Carol, The Forums get together at the Salem International did materialize. It was at Silver Falls State Park roughly 15 to 20 miles from the Int.. 2air came up to stay and several Int. attendee's visited. FYI
Keep an eye on the Forums, maybe someone will organize a forum GTG off-site.

Glad you got to get together. I think 2air is a hoot!! Had to be some high times in a beautiful setting. Hope I'll catch you all next time around. See what happens when you don't have internet on the road, you snooze you lose.

Paperwork Rec'd Yesterday

We received our paperwork in the mail yesterday. Looks like some sort of self-adhesive registration that we attach to the inside of the window... not quite sure yet since this is our first international.

Anyway, we're excited and look forward to attending. Not sure yet if we'll arrive on the first day or wait until the weekend - depends on vacation schedules at work. I submitted my vacation request for the rally today so I suppose I'll be able to take the entire time off. Don't think there are many employees thinking about June/July vacations yet.

I called the Perry fairgrounds recently and found them to be rather vague regarding the number of sites, what type of hookups, etc. Based on MOHO and SOB rallies that have been held there in the past I believe there are over 1000 sites with full hookups (may even have 50A). If that's true I can't imagine why WBCCI did not make this known. I'll do a little more checking and get back to everyone.

Lucius,

You are correct on the registration receipt, but as I recall from Salem, do not attach to the trailer until you have checked in at the site. If Perry is like Salem, you have been assigned an arrival date, on the registration, and cannot arrive until that date.

Have fun.

Bill

Things to see around Perry?

We will be coming in from New England with a small caravan. We are staying off sight at a local campground. Planning on day visiting the International rally, shopping the vendors court, visiting with friends, taking in some of the seminars and classes....

What are the "must sees" or "must does" in the area?

What is the protocol for day visits? We may have a day at the beginning of that we can "drop by" on our way south.

certainly folks just drop in on any day and skip the security check point...

this is frowned upon big time...

and IF you go into the vendor area or other indoor areas someone may approach you for id...

if the wb volunteers wearing security hats (no foolin) spot you and are in the mood...

you will be asked to leave or escorted off site...

there was a day, early last year, with some thefts from officer moho/trailers last year,

when folks were attending a function (before the official rally started)

afterward a pseudo lockdown was started. the main gain was to be closed at 10pm and IF not inside one had to call a guard...

of course there were alternate ways in/out but perry may have different access...

afterwards many were eyeballin' badges and name tags big time....

saturday is also when the vac has it's open house and the vintage units toured...

lets hope they don't to the honey bucket service during the open house again this year...P U!

cheers
2air'

on edit the vac open house was friday! and click the pic for a wide view of the action....

Lucius the fairgrounds probably could not give you an exact number of hook-ups because they will be expanding a central hook-up to multiples. Bring LOTS of sewer hose AND duct tape. I did not connect with my single hose, about 4 or more may have gotten back and around to the other side on my unit. It will probably depend on the volunteers how many hook-ups they create.

Minnie's Mate, look me up if you visit. Should not be a problem at all.

2air,

The VAC open house at Salem was on Friday, remember, the day the tanks were pumped?

I had a friend come by a couple of times during the week, but I was in the VAC section near the road and not near the action.
