'splain this thing to me

I did a double take as I looked at the numbers. I just thought each unit carried its own numbers..I guess its the owners number. Regardless....I luv it all. Will the real 1777 please step up?

Both of those numbers and both of those trailers belong to Pat McDowell who is Region 9 Vintage Chairman and who presented some of the restoration seminars.

The partially restored unit in the background also belongs to Pat. He brought one of those trailers for PeeWee and Susan Schaumberg to stay in during the rally.

Incidentally, Pat has 5 Airstreams and all can carry the number 1777.

In addition to our usual unit newsletter for the month, I put out a "Rally Special Edition" with all of the rally info from our regular newsletter and a lot more photos. There is a list of awards and a list of door prize winners.

John,
Thanks for sharing your newsletter. For those of us outside your region, it again did a nice job of summing up a great rally. I shared how much we enjoyed the rally this past weekend with our local unit (Missouri Greater Ozarks). Don't be surprized if you have more folks from Missouri next year (that is if we're still invited).

Dennis, you and your friends will always have a standing invitation to this rally though I can guarantee you we will be moving it to another location next year. This park repeatedly did not honor its agreements which created many, many problems for us that did not have to be.

I enjoyed so much meeting you and your lovely wife. I just wish I'd had more time to visit.

Maybe moving it further north towards Missouri?

That will help us out next year traveling with a then five year old.

I wish we could hold it further north Steve, but we will likely keep it in the Southern part of Texas below a San Antonio, Austin, north of Houston line to try and insure the best possible weather. It is imperative due to a variety of reasons that we hold this rally in February each year. Our Texas Highland Lakes Unit conducts this rally without financial help from any other source every year and we try to pass along all savings in parking fees, meals, etc. to the participants thus keeping our rally fees as low as possible. We are not in this to make a profit, but to provide a platform for the celebration of all things Vintage Airstream. A bad weather event with resulting cancellations would spell financial ruin for us if we had a number of folks fail to show up after we had already paid for catered meals, decorations, rally awards, etc. This year we fed over 225 people each of the three nights at an average cost of $10 per meal. Do the math just on meals to see the kind of money we could potentially loose. Add in the cost of some of the seminar presenters, copying costs, programs, rally ribbons and awards and you soon see that we must have a reasonable chance for having good weather to sponsor this event each year.

We will have a short meeting at our March unit rally to once again take it before the membership as to whether or not we hold this rally again next year. I am confident we will, but it is something that the membership must collectively decide upon every year. This year it required 28 committee chairmen and 52 total volunteers to put this rally together into the cohesive, well run rally that you saw for the benefit off the 103 trailers and 8 rooms of people staying in the nearby motel. This rally now exceeds the size of all but one WBCCI Region Rally in size as announced at the rally by International 1st Vice President Tom Collier. All of that effort is essentially in the hands of our unit's members with only minimal help from members from other units. Our feedback was tremendous this year. We believe this year's Vintage Rally was universally extremely well received. This rally has become an International event, but remains totally dependent upon the energy and good will of our small group of unit members.

I hope this helps to explain the selection of location each year. By the way, though I didn't have near enough time of my own this year to visit as I would have liked, I would like to personally thank you for attending and adding your own contributions to the success of this rally. I really believe having you available to perform leak testing and having Camper Clinic provide free repair to over 50 trailers while at the rally gave a real value added component to this year's event. Thanks again for your contribution.

GStephens

Hi Everybody, thanks for posting all of your info, we were very sorry to miss the rally ... my doctor seemed to have other ideas, like sharpening his scalpal.

Great to see the pictures aand read the accounts. I was wondering, does anyone have any pictures of the Argosy that won the 70's award?

Marvin and Annie Fisher, if you are members here, would love to see your pictures!! We have a '78 year model and would love to see how the inside and out was done on yours.

Thanks, and see you next year,

Steve
