Thumbs up 4CU004 Vintage Restoration Rally

KenJ: Thanks for the kind words. I write for the South Plains Star covering Sports events usually. My regular column is "At the Wheel" which usually has to do with things automotive. This is an online paper for small towns in West Texas where the local papers have gone out of business.

In another vein, we are really looking forward to the Rally in June, and have made plans to be there to learn more about our Bauxite Bus. It's always enjoyable to meet new friends and learn more about the unit in the offing. And yes, I will be covering it for the paper and make daily updates about what we are doing. So you will have the press on site and working.

Mike , Mary Dee, & Chloe (our Lab)

Do you have to be a member of the WBCCI to attend this rally? Can I bring my '74 Argosy? Or does it have to be "Silver"?

Nope - all are welcome - and yes Argosy's are VERY welcome!! You have have some company - there will be other Argosy's - no it does not need to be painted silver - will take it even if its purple... - in fact you don't even need a trailer, or bring a tent (yes we've had folks with tents and sob's) - the point is for folks who love these old trailers and want to learn skills necessary to repair or even rebuild them - or if you are thinking about buying an Airstream just to see whats involved before you take it on - we promise you will learn a lot!

I don't know if I mentioned this before - we seem to always have a vintage trailer or two (think we had 3-4 last year - and I know two were sold during the rally) for sale.

OK! I'm all excited about this rally. I have the plane ticket website up and am ready to book flights. I had trouble with the campside website- it didn't have any links showing how to arrange anything with them or directions, etc. I will need a rental car, and?? anything I need to know about? What will the weather be like?

Sign me up! PLEASE :-)

Yippy yippy yeah! I think others in the past have taken some sort of shuttle - I would think the route 66 hotel/casino has a shuttle - then its just a short bike ride to the campground...

As far as the campground, call Vickie she can give you all the details about how to get to/from her place - she owns the campground and lets us take if over for a weekend each year. She - if its still available - has a Sparten trailer you can stay in for 40/night

The weather - perfect - low humidity with warm days and comfortable nights.

Sure hope you can put it together - again let us know how to make it happen.

Very good! I'll be booking the flight tonight. I'll see if I can't get a shuttle when I arrive. If not, I'll get a car- they must have them at the airport. I'll call the campground-- might be a little late now- so I'll do that in the morning. Hopefully I can grab a bunk in the Spartan.. that would be cool! The closest I have been to a Spartan is about 20 feet. There's one in a storage area off the road in S.Aug. that I pass frequently. I'll be bringing camera(s) and a notebook for sure!!

Thanks so much, and I can hardly wait!

Rae

If I remember correctly, Vickie also had a vintage Overlander that she rents out as well.

I've got my flight booked and I'll be staying in a Silver Streak (I'm pretty sure that's what she said!) SO excited

OK- so what kind person wants to get me from the airport?? It's only a 15 min. drive and Vickie says there's a back way that avoids the city... .

I'm pretty sure its a Sparten - Pee Wee has the Overlander reserved - Vickie is so excited that a Byam is staying in her trailer....

Rae - we will try to figure out something for you - we have a number of folks flying in, so hopefully we can hook you up with someone.

Shari - so sorry to hear you won't make it you y'alls presentation was fabulous last year - will see if we can fill your shoes... are you coming to balloon fiesta? or even the route 66 rally (I really need to get that one going.....) I have the Rocky Mtn Vintage rally on my calander for this year... I'll get that going after 4/15 - - - -when I come back among the living...

Not sure on the balloon rally yet, we are definitely going to International and I'm not sure if we'll be able to take enough time off to make it this year...I'll let you know. Hope you can make it out for the RMVAC - it's going to be our 10th celebration so we're going all out!

You have mail.....

I sent out confirmation on reciept of your reservation for this rally - so if you did not get one, then I either did not get your reservation or you have decided not to join us this year...

We have a great rally planning so look forward to lots of fun and learning....

I'm in!

With the [hopefully] lower winds in June, maybe I can repair a dual pane window without getting too much dust inside! Otherwise, we'll just buck some rivets.

We have folks coming from all over - yes there are others flying in and staying in motels. I need to get with it and start nailing things down - so you all should hearing from us soon.

From what I can tell the weather looks good for that weekend... Our past two rallies have been over this upcoming weekend - AND - forcast - cool and windy...
