In posting the above, I lost the formatting of the original document making it difficult to read in places especially regarding the seminars. If interested in more information, please let us know and we will email you the PDF files for this rally. See everyone in Montgomery, Texas.

Arrow Drop-Ins and Drive-Ups

Being that there are many (so it would seem) Airstream owners in the greater Houston area, and that some (if not most) of them might not belong to the hosting clubs (or any club in some cases); It therefore might be presumed that those folks (as well as others) might just like to "drop by" for a "sample" of what this much heralded event is all about.

Am I correct in deducting that they have but two (2) choices?

* One is to pay the full $40.00 registration fee and "drop by" anytime they like during the 5 day event. Partake (if desired) in all events including the Pot Luck Dinner and the Chicken Dinner, socialize at the 4:00PM "toasts" etc.

~or~

* Two is "drop by" only on Saturday afternoon arriving around 1:00PM and take in the open house and then leave promptly before sundown.

Am I further correct that the "drop-ins" are not welcome/permitted at the swap meet/flea mkt. Saturday morning, nor the gabfest/forum Saturday Evening?

Can a "drop-in" pay registration fee at the site?
Is the fee reduced (pro-rated) if paid on a later day?

Just a suggestion for discussion at the gabfest or wherever appropriate: have a $12.00 "drop-in" day pass (no meal included) available next year.
Also I hope that someone will "try" to get a list (names & contact info) of who drops in and whether they are Airstream owners and how they heard about the event.

note: this post is in no way a criticism of anything, I just think clarification of the "drop-in" protocol might save embarrassment and mis-understandings.

I am hoping my schedule allows me to drop-in.

Woo Hoo...getting close!

Looks like weather is starting to warm up ever so slightly too. I was informed by bajamist that you can purchase the meal options for the two catered events.

Smile Texas Vintage Rally Fees

Thanks for your comments, Distantdrummer.

The $40 rally fee allows a "drive-in/drop-in" to participate in any seminar, discussion group, enjoy daily coffee service, potluck, 2 catered dinners, a TERRIFIC Friday night musical variety show plus Saturday's Flea Market and evening Informal Forum. Now is that a bargain or what??
Whether you come 1 or 4 days, it is a flat (per person) rate. I do need a firm commitment (and your check) by Feb 3, 2010 due to reservations required by the caterer.

SATURDAY ONLY "drop-ins" may attend the Flea Market and the Public Vintage Open House at no charge. Again, I would need a commitment and check for $12 to attend the catered Chicken dinner. You are invited to stay for the Informal Forum to follow.

I hope I have clarified this for our Houston area visitors. We hope to see many of you there!

I'm glad this question was asked (and answered) as I am local to Houston, do not currently belong to any unit, want to attend (but will only be able to make it up on Saturday), and are particularly interested in the vintage " Open House".

To be honest , I like the idea of the "drop-in" option such that you could attend more than one day (but perhaps not all) at a fixed fee per day selected.

You will find that at this rally we bend over backwards to accomodate everyone and their needs.

1) Rally fees are fully refundable unless using Pay Pal where-in the small Pay Pal fee is not refundable should something last minute occur and you be unable to attend.
2) You do not have to be a member of any club to attend.
3) You don't have to own an Airstream to attend Saturday's open house and flea market.
4) We try and accompdate your attendance for one day, two days, three days, four days or even longer. Parking fees remain at the reduced rate either way.
5) We've scheduled what we feel is our most diverse group of seminars for this rally ever and there are more seminars scheduled than ever before.
6) Over the past six years we've listened to suggestions and we hope we're getting it right. That evaluation process is ongoing and will continue following this year's rally.

Come enjoy and learn what Airstreaming and Vintage Airstreaming can be about.

See you in Montgomery!

Gayland Stephens

As to the weather, I live about 200 miles north of Montgomery and we have had 70 degree weather the past two days. While that has nothing to do with what the weather will be like for the rally, our past experience with this rally site has been that we've generally enjoyed great weather for the rally and this year's rally is scheduled a week later than in the past.

Arrow 2010 Manifest ?

I know last year Gayland really spurred interest by regularly posting and updating a manifest of who was signed up to come. This kept the thread bumped to the main portal board (front & center) for longer periods of time. It probably more importantly encouraged some to come just to rub elbows with the "famous" or familiar personalities (from air-forums) they saw listed.

The other thread (in the rally section) >> http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...-10;&e=600&c=1 shows a list of rsvp'ers but it does not seem to be complete, or at least I hope not.

Never saw any figures from last year of a count or estimate of how many drop-ins showed up. That'd be interesting.
BTW if any data is gathered from the drop-ins this year, I hope they will be asked to enter their "air-forum names" as well.

We attended for 2 years before joining WBCCI and found it a great way to learn more about AS trailers and meet many great people. Unfortunately a conflict precludes us from attending this year, but I do encourage non WBCCI members to attend. It is a great event and grows every year.

When is the judging for the Vintage units going to be. Maybe I missed that in the schedule.
