ours came today as well and as it worked out we had a gathering of the Minnesota Airstream park this evening. Both my wife and I wore ours. Great timing!

Nice shirts.

I'm wearing one of my two shirts as I write this. I wanted to wear both shirts once and wash them once before moving them permanently to the Airstream.

Is there any chance that next year this event could be planned for dates when kids are out of school? We would love to attend but both last year and this year school is still in.

The date is set to coincide with the big festival that Jackson Center holds each year. When I went to the Homecoming, that was the case and it was also the case for Alumapalooza last year. See Jackson Center News about halfway down the page.

It also is a lot cooler earlier on in the month and a lot more comfortable living in that field without the benefit of AC.

... I understand but unfortunately it eliminates families with kids in school. Some families would love to attend but cannot.

Yes, when we first talked to Airstream about this event, they made only one request: that we hold it in conjunction with Jackson Center Days. Airstream wants to support its local community, which I think is admirable.

That puts the event at the beginning of June every year. Our apologies to those who can't make it at that time.

We are looking forward to this one!

Hope you don't mind, but our WBCCI Unit agreed to allow me to bring a Unit Caravan to the rally. Don't know how many I will have, but it will definitely be an INFORMAL group!

mbmstreamer: You're not the only one bringing in a unit caravan. I've heard from others who say they are caravanning into Alumapalooza 2011 as well. No solid confirmations yet, but it sounds like great fun.

Heck, I was even thinking about organizing my own little caravan, maybe from Arizona via Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I can't say yet if this is possible, but it sure would be fun!

By the way, as of today we have 128 trailers registered out of 200 possible.

Rich,
If your caravan is coming through Indianapolis, lest us know. We may just jump on with you.

Group : We have just purchased a (new to us..) 2002 Classic 34 & are considering attending Alumapalooza.

The wife & I are 50'somethings (not retired) & are from Windsor Ontario (next to Detroit) so Jackson Center is within a day's drive for us.

We're just curious...if any other Airstreamers were planning to be travelling through Windsor on their way to the event, that we might be able to convoy along with ?

Would any WBCCI Ontario unit folks be going ??

P.
