Y'all come to the 2009 Region 7 VAC Rally!
It will be held the same place as last year, the L O Simenstad Municipal Airport, Osceola, Wisconsin, timed to coincide with Osceola's 3-day Community Fair and Wheels and Wings Day, a grand gathering of exotic cars, aircraft--and now Airstreams!--at the airport.
We had a blast last year. We were parked on a large grass area right on the airport, where we had a ring-side seat for the aircraft. (pictured below) No electricity, but daisy-chained water and porta-potties were provided. Enough people had generators to share that we could keep our batteries charged.
You probably won't
need air conditioning in northern Wisconsin in September--do
come with some LP in your tanks since you may need heat! Last year Osceola provided a fire ring and a prodigious quantity of firewood, which they cordially invited us to use up so they wouldn't have to haul it away!
Everyone in Osceola was nice as could be, and we had a big turnout for the Vintage Open House.
By the way, your hosts, Curt and Julie Gunderson, are in the hospitality business (Home in the Pines Bed & Breakfast http://www.frontiernet.net/~jag50/
), so they know how to line up first class catering!
This is a buddy rally, so you don't need to be a member of WBCCI--or even own an Airstream--to attend.
If you have a vintage Airstream in the upper midwest--this is the place you need to be that weekend! Invitation and registration form are attached in .pdf form.
