Texas Vintage Airstream Rally - 2013

I know it is early, but I have been getting some questions regarding the next Texas Vintage Rally. We have agreed that Colorado will have their vintage event on even years and we will have our event on odd years. We have moved from February to October in order to get more predictable weather conditions. October, in Texas, generally brings moderate weather.

We are scheduled for the first full weekend in October, 2013 at J. B. Wells park in the historic city of Gonzales, Texas where the first shot in the war to gain independence from Mexico was fired.

Three of us went to Gonzales yesterday to do some advance planning with the J. B. Wells park folks and the Chamber of Commerce. We received a great reception; those folks are eager and ready for 100+ Airstream rigs to visit their city.

The park has several hundred full hookup sites on grass. We have reserved 100 sites with the option to expand into as many as another 80 sites. Meals and seminars will be in on concrete floor in a big, open sided arena. New trailers from the dealer and vintage trailers in process of restoration will be brought right in to the arena. Seminars will be in the arena and in an air conditioned room. The park has a fine sound system with wireless microphones.

As before, we will have a pot luck and two catered dinners. In addition to our seminars and vintage open house, we are scheduling our activities to allow everyone to make maximum benefit of the events in town. We can enter some events such as their photo show. There will be a cutting horse competiton in the park and we can watch at no cost.

We have been invited to include one or more vintage Airstreams in their big parade.

Some info on Gonzales can be found at Welcome to Gonzales - Gonzales Texas Chamber of Commerce, including the brochure from the 2011 "Come and Take it" event in 2011 at http://www.gonzalestexas.com/images/...omegetit11.pdf.

As before, WBCCI membership is not required to attend.

Sponsored by the Texas Highland Lakes Unit of WBCCI.

Hot Diggity John! Sounds exciting already. Love the advance planning already going on. Will we still allow those ugly new trailers to come like last year? KIDDING everyone! Who knows, we may not be vintage then.

The Colorado event is open to WBCCI members only. Is this rally also a closed event?

Hi John:

Sounds like a wonderful vintage event during a beautiful time of the year. I have already marked my 2013 calendar. See you there!

Fred, I'm tickled to death to hear you are coming. As seminar chair, can I prevail on you to give a presentation?

Hi John:

Sure, I'll cook up something before then, perhaps spiced with some tangy BBQ sauce.

I would be interested in attending a seminar that may help with my renovation. Trailer won't be ready to roll by then though.
