Today was absolutely phenomenal! The energy and time committed to this fantastic rally, by both the organizing committee and attendees, is unbelievable! The day started with everything you ever wanted to know about brakes and axles (Thanks Uwe and Luke!) in a seminar setting; then moved on to riveting, sheetmetal and tools. Following lunch, it was hands-on around the park. Kip drew large crowds for a riveting demonstration (which was riveting!) at his trailer; then everyone headed over to Levon's trailer to learn about polishing.

The presenters were chosen for a reason, and today it was obvious why. They are all experts in their fields and enthusiastically shared their knowledge with all attendees.

To wrap up the evening everyone participated in a catered dinner in the club house. Looking forward to tomorrow!

I would loved to have participated in the weekend, but stopping by on Friday was well worth the time. If a picture is worth a 1,000 words the physical manifestation is exponentialy more useful. How come no one has a polished swamp cooler though?

Here is another view of Kip's hands-on rivet demonstration at the FCU Restoration Rally. This is SteSpot and SilverPal2 trying their hand at riveting. Enjoy!

Restoration Rally Group Photo

A very educational hands on rally. Kudos to Ken J and the presenters, meal planners, commercial sponsors, etc. Notice all the Vintage Trailer Supply T shirts.
(Thanks also to Lewster for the terrific wireless backup camera door prize).

I wonder if the the Bee's back window shape had anything to do with sales?

From the look of the pictures everyone was having a fun and informative time.

I suspect that there are still some there hard at work/uh, play. A tremendous idea for a rally and one that I suspect will grow rapidly if it becomes an annual, or perhaps more frequent, occurrence.

I know I for one would love to attend one at some point although I'd have to hide my trailer way in back of the lot so no one would see my handiwork.

Great fun, thanks for sharing the photos

Barry

Four Corners Rally

This was my first rally and I enjoyed it immensely! Everyone was so friendly and willing to share their experiences and knowledge. Though I have to admit if I hear "rivets" one more time---Kip will be sleeping in the Globetrotter with his rivets! I hope to see many of our new friends at many sites "along the long and winding road"!
