WOW! Thanks for all the kudos guys...but I didn't do this by myself! I had lots of help from the Planning Committee:

Randy Unter - VAC Regional Representative - the one with the local vision!
Fred Coldwell - VAC Historian
Luke Bernander & Donna-"Rita" Thomas - Helpers Extrodinaire!
Dan & Pat Huizinga - Early-Bird Scouts
Louie DeCarolis - Past WBCCI Unit President & terrific all-round guy
Kris & Jill Gosar - For outdoing themselves again this year with the terrific BBQ
John & Jodi Guerin - Wonderful T-shirts & Coffee
New Belgium Brewery - The Beerstream, Beer & all the goodies!
Jim Cooper - For tracking down the Cajun Cooker for the Chili Dump
Everybody who helped "schelep things" back & forth to the community site
The NBC Crew (Mario, Scott & Andre) - for helping to promote the wonderful community of vintage Airstreamers
Rob Davis - My husband who puts up with my Type "A" personality & all my projects!
And finally, for all the attendees who made the 2003 Rocky Mountain VAC the best ever!!! It wouldn't have been the same without you!

Shari

P.S.

1. We are working on the Rally Report website, I will post a link when complete.
2. To see a list of attendees and trailers check out the Rally Website Link above...there is an "Attendees" link.
2001 = 15 Trailers
2002 = 26 Trailers
2003 = 40 trailers/90 people!
2004 = Will you be there? No firm plans yet...but we will advise ASAP
3. Good mix of Forum/VAC Members...maybe a few new forum members will show up!

BTW...Randy Hedges won the Silent Auction for the banner with a very generous bid!

Shari -

Sorry we missed you! We got caught in a hail storm on the way down Saturday afternoon... didn't get there 'til late, but we got a few 'tours' anyway. We won't be late next time - it was great!


Anybody know about the rally in Loveland coming up soon?

Concerning the Loveland rally,

Will there be a time for wanna-be's to show up and talk to owners?

Thanks!

Typically, the Denver Unit WBCCI Rallies do not have a dedicated "Open House" like the VAC Rallies. However, there are always folks hanging around willing to talk to wanna-bes and admirers...oftentimes, you'll be invited inside.

If we're there, we'll always welcome visitors...but we're not sure we're going to make it to this one having just got home from La Veta Tuesday evening (rally starts Friday)...gotta work sometime!

Shari

Glimpse of the rally~

As mentioned earlier in this thread, NBC Nightly News sent a film crew to the 2003 Rocky Mountain VAC Rally to film a segment on Vintage Airstreams. Mario, Scott & Andre hung out all weekend filming & interviewing...we took Maxwell, to a local park to film the last 13 seconds with Roger O'Neil, the "talent" this afternoon.

Roger confirmed that our VAC Rally segment will air Friday, August 15th at 5:30-6:00 MDT, check your local
listings.

The entire segment is only about 2 minutes...so don't blink!

North Side Blackout vs Airstream Rally

Looks like the blackout pre-empted the coverage of our glimpse of the La Veta rally. Bummer (all the way around)!!! Any word on when they might reschedule the airplay of the Rally segment? Told several people to watch, so hope to get the word~~so none of us miss it. Leigh

I guess NBC found the "little blackout" more newsworthy than our rally...

I have a call into the producer (in NY) to find out when it will be rescheduled...I'll pass along whatever I find out!

Here's the latest...

I spoke with the producer in NY this morning, they have rescheduled the segment to air this Friday the 22nd, at 5:30-6:00 MDT, check your local listings. Again it's supposed to be at the end of the the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw...kind of a "have a good weekend" segment...hopefully no more crisis will preempt us...

Unhappy Bumped again...

Well...I just found out NBC bumped us again...now it's supposed to air on Monday, August 25th...Do you think NBC is just trying to up their number of viewers?

Basically, if you are interested, just watch the NBC Nightly News EVERY night 'til it airs!
