2007 Texas State Vintage Rally

Texas Highland Lakes Unit is doing it again! And this time, the North Texas Unit is joining us as co-hosts

Don't let your trailer sit unused all winter. Join us in east Texas. This rally is centered around vintage trailers with an open house and judging, but Airstreams of every and every vintage are invited.

Set aside January 31-February 4 to come to Haven's Landing at Montgomery, Texas. Haven's Landing is a first-class park with all full-hookups on concrete pads and a fine meeting hall.

We have 100 sites reserved for this rally and we need 60 rigs to get the meeting facilities free. We had 51 rigs attending at McKinney Falls SP for our first big vintage rally in February, 2006, so we certainly should be able to get 60 or more out the next time.

This will be conducted very like a Forums rally. There will be a potluck one evening and a catered meal one evening and probably some continental breakfasts. There should be some seminars but no other sceduled activities. Don't look for berets, pomp, and processions; it won't happen.

ALL Airstream owners are invited. WBCCI membership is not required. We will certainly invite you though, without pressure.

Montgomery is just west of Conroe, TX, near I-45, about 55 miles northwest of Houston. Montgomery is an easy tow from Austin, Houston, or the DFW area.

We held a unit rally there several years ago and the 2005 WBCCI IBT was held there. It is one of the top 5 parks that I have ever visited.

Good news

The North Texas Unit is joining our Highland Lakes Unit as co-hosts for the rally. That is good news since we now have two of the largest and most active units in the region working together to insure that it comes off well.

We have 100 sites reserved at Haven's Landing and will start to take reservations for those sites starting in late fall, 2006, probably late October.

Some new info

The rally information and a registration form is now up on the Region 9 website. All owners of Airstream products are invited, so don't let the blank for WBCCI number throw you if you are not a member. That blank is there only to make some of the WBCCI brass happy (or less unhappy).

Not too much hard schedule information yet, here's what I know so far:
  • Wednesday: arrival day. Registration. Dinner on your own since we expect a lot of late arrivals.
  • Thursday: Seminars and demos. A simple pot luck or chili dump that evening
  • Friday: Seminars and demos. A catered dinner and entertainment
  • Saturday: Swap table. Vintage and new Airstream open house. Sausage wraps & fixings that evening
  • Sunday: departure day

We have 100 sites reserved and the vintage trailers will all be on "Vintage Row". For the open house, there will be parking at the end of vintage row and only foot traffic on the row itself. The open house will be widely advertised.

Montgomery is a small "arty" town with a number of antique and other shops.

More good news

For those working folks with limited time, we have made arrangements with the RV park that will allow us to stay until 3PM on Sunday without extra charges wnd they will not balk if some stay until 5pm.

We are considering moving the swap table to Sunday morning to free up more time the other days and make use of our extra time on Sunday.

The Airstream Company will be donating door prizes and ice cream. We are working with them on having a Base Camp on display along with the several new trailers our dealer is bringing.

Tentative schedule

I just posted a tentative schedule at http://www.wbregion9.org/Vintage%20Sched.pdf.

Changes can and will be made at least until mid-January when we go to the printers for schedules. We expect to add more seminars including a "Great Ideas" seminar based on my column in Airstream Life.

Deadline Change

The registration deadline has been extended to January 15. We will go to the printer on that date for schedules and attendee lists for those attending.

The park has graciously permitted us to stay until 3PM on Sunday without extra charge and we can even push it till 5 if necessary. We have moved the swap table to Sunday morning followed by a potluck lunch. For those who cannot get there at the very start of the rally, this effectively gives us another day.

Remember, if you can not attend the full rally, we still want you to come. Call Jerry Jackson at jerry@gaj.com, or 512-832-5663 or 512-431-8536 to determine the rally fee required.[/U][/I][/B]

This sounds like a perfect trip for my Overlander's first outing to Texas with Kim & I leading the way.

If we can line up my mom & dad to watch the Boyz for a few days, we would like to attend as we have really enjoyed The Lone Star State in past visits.

In Shiner Bock in season in January?

Tom

Time to sign up is growing short

The deadline for registering has been extended to Jan 15 if you want to be assured of the catered meal and a listing in the rally booklet.

You can register right up to the rally, however, by getting in touch with Jerry Jackson at 512-832-5663 or 512-431-8536 (cell). We can't assure you the catered meal after Jan 15, but we will adjust the rally fee accordingly.

We have over 60 rigs registered to date with over 20 vintage. We hav 8 seminars scheduled so far ... I'm giving one based on my column in Airstream Life. Fred of "Phred says" will aso give a seminar.

I'm leaving this morning for Haven's Landing for a final planning meeting with Jerry and all of the rally chairpersons. We want to make this a rally to remember.
