NOVA-fest Rally at Airstream

As we move forward with the process of forming NOVA, we felt a rally to allow founding and prospective members to get together would be appropriate.

What better place for the first meeting than at The Airstream Factory. This Rally is open to all who have an interest or even curiosity in what we are confident will be the newest WBCCI Unit. Even if you currently have no plans to join NOVA - we still welcome you to join us in Jackson Center.

The Rally dates are March 25, 26 and 27. Feel free to attend all or part of this event.

Airstream has agreed to host us at their Terra Port. For those of you that need service, this would be a great opportunity to join the Rally and also have your trailer serviced. As of this week the Service Department at Airstream has openings on Thursday and Friday. If you are planning service they ask that you please arrange that as soon as possible.

Here is the link for Service information: http://service.airstream.com/airstream-factory-service/index.html

The Factory Store will be open on Thursday and Friday. If you have not been there before I’m sure you will find some part or accessory that will be a must have.

If we receive enough attendees, Airstream has agreed to provide us with our own factory tour on the morning of the 26th.

We will need to provide Airstream a count of possible attendees as soon as possible. Sign up through the Rally Calendar - the cut off date will be February 17th.

We are excited about the formation of NOVA and thank everyone who has signed up as a member or associate member already.

More details will follow - please join us at this unique event.

NovaFest makes me think of the Star Wars bar scene.

bumping this

I just want to remind anyone who has been following the formation of NOVA that even though we had to start with OH as our geographic location of this unit, we are really all about drawing in ALL locations around the world. We hope that MI, IL, IN, PA, KY, TN folks are close enough to join and come to the rally, as well as those willing to join us from afar! This rally will be all about coming to JC to have fun!

For those of you who have been to the Terra-Port before, what is it like?

I've seen references to campfires, so I'm assuming that we can have them. Is there a pavilion of some sort? I have tried to find some pictures, but I couldn't find anything. Is it set up like a normal campground? Is there grass? Bathhouses?

There are loops of wagon wheel parking, each with perhaps 6 sites. All Trailers back up to the full hook-ups with their rears together at a center landscape circle. It is paved. There may be a table off to the side and there is a barbecue pit off to the side under the trees by the fence. The sites do not have firerings or tables and there is no bathhouse but the building has a lounge with seating, wi-fi, bathrooms, tv and free coffee and cocoa machine and the Airstream store. Animals are allowed inside the lounge. I will look for pictures.

We were just checking things out on Google Maps w/ satellite view. Looks like 3 circles, yes? Either way, it appears that there's plenty of places to "overflow" to although that basically means parking next to the plant or in the employee parking lot late Friday or into Sat.

NO ONE is to mention free cocoa to Parker! If you do, then YOU will be the one trudging in there with him every hour to get another cup.

Here are a few more snaps of the Airstream Terror port and Main Street, Jackson Center
When I was there it was very clean and well maintained!

facilities

The restrooms are inside the "store" area. There are no outside facilities and no shower house. Limited "yard" space, most is graveled or paved. In other words, no play area to speak of for the youngin's. It is pretty much a parking lot with hookups in wagon wheel shapes.

Actually, in the back is some grass to run around in. I believe a barbecue is also located back their with a couple of picnic tables.

It is possible that I may be able to provide a large shelter (heated) that would hold about 15 people. Not sure though.

I was wondering if we wanted to get a hold of a local restaurant to see about using a back room for a dinner Saturday night? Chances are good that weather is gonna be cold. Might be nice to have a place to sit around talk, and maybe have a couple of beers. Wonder if there's a bowling alley in town?

place to gather in the cold

I got a PDF file from Rich Luhr that gave us a great description of JC and the businesses and stuff there. I did not see a bowling alley listed there, nor on the town's website. Rich says that the Veranda restaurant is the one they like. He did not say whether they had a meeting room, or party room. Anyone been there???
There is a Wally Byam Memorial Park in town that is used on a first come, first served basis. It has two shelters with electricity, however they are probably just open sided. We could always rig a couple of tarps to stop the wind. I doubt there is competition for these during the winter months. LOL! Whether electricity is on in Mar. is a question too.
