Sign Up Info 2008 East Coast VAC Rally

OK,

After input from the "East Coast VAC" thead, email and talking to people who have offered to help, the call was made, camping sites on placed on hold and sign up is ready to begin!


Here's the details:

The "East Coast VAC Rally" will be held during the dates of "June 19, 2008-June 23, 2008" which is a Thurs-Monday. The rally will be held at the "KOA" in "Staunton, Virginia". Staunton, Virginia is located off I-81 between I-66 & I-64 in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley.

The "KOA" offers things for the family with kids and the kids at heart. Nestled within a 1 Miles Horse Shoe Bend of Middle River. SVKOA is the only campground in Virginia with a spectacular Waterfall and four 6-person Indoor Hot Tubs. We offer Free Wi-Fi, River Tubing, Wading and Trout and Bass Fishing in the River as well as Trout and Bass Fishing in our Well-Stocked Lake. We have a Huge Pool and a Kiddie Pool, 18 Hole Mini-Golf, Game Room and Two Playgrounds and Nature Trails.Be greeted by our Tame Bunnies, Squirrels, and Ducks on your way to the Pitstop Cafe for a Pizza. Pitch Horseshoes, play sand Volleyball or cool off under the refreshing Waterfall. On summer nights sing Karaoke (Fridays) and dance to our DJ (Saturdays).

Here's how you need to sign up for the rally. "You need" to call the "campground" and make your own reservations. Let them know you are with the "Airstream" group. Since their sites range in size, we ask those of you that have the smaller trailers (16-21 footers) please let them know (we're trying to save the longer sites for longer trailers).

I have on hold 48 sites that have water/elec ($34-37 a night). They have about 12 more sites that have water/elec/sewer ($39-42 a night) that require a credit card to hold them (I was not going to use my personal credit card to hold these). They also have many other sites at the campgound that can be used.

Shenandoah Valley KOA
296 Riner Ln
Verona, VA 24482
Information: 540-248-2746
Reservations: 800-310-2580
Staunton/Verona - I-81 Exit 227 KOA - Verona Va. (540)-248-2746

I have the 48 campsites are on hold until 30 days before the rally, at that time, "ALL" campsites are released to the general public. The other campsites (water/elec/sewer) can be held by anyone and anytime (general public) by using a credit card. Again, I "do not" have these on hold.

My thought is this, in an "attempt" to please everyone:

Sign up for the rally is open to only "WBCCI" members until "March 1, 2008". On "March 1, 2008" the rally is open to "ALL" Airstream owners .

I do want to make a (personal) offer to all "non-WBCCI" owners out their that have a vintage Airstream trailer (25 yrs or older) that would like to attend. If you have a need/want to use the early "WBCCI" sign-up option, if you sign-up for the WBCCI before "March 1, 2008", "I will pay" the added $20.00 dues to become a member of the "VAC" for the first year! But, you "must" attend the rally and "must" become a "WBCCI" member "prior" to March 1, 2008. At the rally, we will fill out the "VAC" paperwork and send it in with a check from "my checkbook"!!!

I can't do anymore than that!!

I'll send out an agenda later.


Please email me letting me know you have signed up.

Paul, I wanted to attend this rally, but other commitments make this date impossible for me. I hope this rally will be well attended.

Nice Work, Paul!

Paul,

I love your dedication, generosity and tenacity in supporting not only the WBCCI but the VAC as well.
As the VAC Membership Chair, please let me know what I can do to support you in this effort. I make myself available to you. I hope you get 100 new members (and if you do I will help you fund it myself out of my own pocket).

Just learned something

FYI,

When making your call to the campground, be sure to tell them you are with the "JUNE" Airstream group. Oh and by the way, I am hold four full hookup sites at this time. One of them is for myself(so please don't take it) and 3 spots to have as a backup. I have also paid for a site next to the river that is large enough for everyone for campfires at night.

We already have someone signed up!

Any questions, let me know.

Paul

I guess that would be me. It will be my first VAC rally so I'm excited. Thanks Paul for going through with these plans. I'm looking forward to meeting lots of vintage owners and other Airstreamers. This event will be held in one of the most picturesque areas of the country too.

Paul, I wish I could give you more credit than the karma I sent. You make me proud to be part of your unit and the club as a whole. To offer up the VAC membership just blows my mind. That folks, is what Airstreaming is all about. I will be phoning up the KOA first thing in the morning to put in our reservation. Now if I can just get the floor put back by then we will be set.

You have made a most generous offer and have certainly put your money where your mouth is.
It's too far out for me to know if we can attend yet but I will pencil this on my calander and start trying to make it a reality. That is a really beautiful part of the country.
Reckin if one looks round hard 'nuff, they mighten just find some bluegrass!

I can't believe I missed this when I first read the thread opening. I was so happy to see an East Coast VAC rally on dates I could do that this offer totally blew over me.

Paul, you are remarkable and a credit to the WBCCI and the VAC. Major Karma to you.

This sounds like a great event in a perfect part of the country. I'm sure, because of the location, there will be many vintage Airstreams. We don't want to miss it, we'll try make it. Thank you for the information.

This is great, an East Coast VAC event. It's about 600 miles for us from Connecticut. The Bat Cave Express will be there....

Quick "FYI"

I have learned since posting the sign up info, the campground is "somewhat" closed. It appears for the winter they are in and out of the office. Which means, sometimes they do, sometimes they don't answer the phone.Most that have tried to call back a couple of times have got through and able to make their resv. Keep trying or do it on line.

We're in for the VAC Rally

Hey there Paul,

Just signed up for the rally at the campground. I think we're going to be caravanning down with Nancy and Brian Platt. It will be good to see you all again.

You bringing the Travelall

Paul,

Glad to see you guys are going to make! Had a great time with you on the "VAC Wagon Wheels Caravan" down to the International Rally last year in Perry, GA. Are you using the International Travelall this year as a Vintage tow rig? I plan to bring my 1962 Ford Galaxie Conv.. Used it last year for a rally, only 7.5mpg on a 16gal. tank. I had to stop every 65/70 miles and fill back up!! Vintage cars and Airstreams, I've also had someone offer to make breakfast for everyone. It's shaping up to be a good rally.


Can't wait to see you and the girl.
