Pensacola Vintage Rally - April 20-23 2006

The Pensacola WBCCI Unit invites everyone to their Annual Vintage Rally at Mystic Springs Airstream Park on April 20-23, 2006. Go to the Mystic Springs Airstream Park web site (www.geocities.com/mystic-springs) to see the rustic beauty of the vintage campground high on the banks of the Escambia River 30 miles north of Pensacola. The web site includes a map to the park. Display your vintage Airstream and tour others at the vintage open house on Saturday afternoon. Rally agenda includes the vintage Airstream Open House, a Polishing Demo, vintage movies/presentations and fireside stories. We expect 15 to 20 vintage Airstreams and a like number of newer Airstreams. This year the club's 58 Airstream Pacer (predecessor to the Bambi) renovation is underway and will be at the park. By April we will probably be working on replacing the floor. This will be an excellent chance to see a renovation in progress. This Pacer will be given away via a raffle at the Region 6 Rally in Gray TN in Oct 2006. Tickets will be available at the rally. Rally details are at:

Thanks for posting the information, I am working on plans now to attend but I won't know for sure for a few more weeks.

Being just a few hours away I hope to join you all on upcoming events.

We were hoping to make this one (especially after meeting everyone today-I didn't want to go home!), but we've got commitments for t-ball that weekend.

Pensacola Vintage Rally

The Pensacola Pacer raffle Airstream will be at the Vintage Rally next week. We are currently working to replace the floor so the the inside is stripped and the floor work is underway. If you are contemplating doing floor work this will be a good chance to see one "opened up".

See our progress at:

BTW, this rally is a buddy rally so all are welcome!

1st Rally!

We will be attending this rally and are pretty excited to see all the vintage Airstreams! Due to many family "things", two of us will be arriving Friday evening and the remaining three will arrive mid afternoon on Saturday. Looking forward to our first rally with our unit!

It looks like we may also be able to attend this rally with our two youngest kids but may not arrive until Saturday.

Does the park have a nearby playground or a safe biking area?

Hope to see you all there!

Mystic Springs Facilities

We don't have a kid's playground with swings, etc. There is a shuffleboard court and horseshoes. The park is 10 acres on the Escambia River. Bikers can ride through the campground roads. The park is a mile or so away from the busy US 29 on a little used residential road that deadends at a boat ramp a couple of blocks past the entrance to our campground.

Thanks Herb,

Any idea how many Vintage campers will be there?

Mystic Springs Vintage Rally

It will probably be about 30 to 35 Airstreams with about half vintage. Also a few "buddies" are signed up. I haven't seen the full list as it is at the campground which is 70 miles away.

Unhappy Can't make it....

Due to a reoccuring back problem, we won't be making the trip out to McDavid this weekend! My parents have already called to tell me what I'm missing out on- -but my back doesn't care! So I look forward to next years vintage rally-and any I can see between now and then!

Well, Devo, from the sounds of things, we missed a good one!! But my back is feeling better, so I guess something good came from NOT going.

I could not make it again this year also, too many obligations and last minute issues with work that could not wait.

I hope all enjoyed and we hope to attend in the near future.

Yea I bet it was pretty fun.This would have been the first time to go to something like this for us.I have not been to a gettogether or rally as of yet but plan to when the winter hits and I have the time to.
I did get a couple of days off by trading out with someone at work so we stayed at Topsail Sunday to Tuesday.We just got home today and are already planning the next trip in about several more months from now.(Really about 7 months from now.)I am hoping we will get a chance to do it again after labor day weekend.
