Gathering of the Times of Vintage only

I am it hosting this rally, but attending. It's a tin can tourist event, in Georgia South of Atlanta, in Pine Mountain. This is home to the beautiful Callaway Gardens, and very close to the FDR home in Warm Springs. Also a terrific antique motorcycle and stuff museum that is amazing.
Open to 1976 and older campers only.
Expect over 100 attendees.

How can it be a tin can tourist event and have year restrictions?

It's a "Vintage" Rally

So "vintage" is 40-years and not 25?

Missing the point, if it's an official tin can tourist event all trailers are welcome, it's in the membership rules. Year of trailer is irrelevant, unless the rules have changed. What year is considered vintage varies. For judging a year limitation is involved, I think, but not for membership or attendance.

Per the link in Post #1, this is a rally for all vintage trailers, not just Airstreams, of a certain age, to take place in October 2017:

http://www.gatheringofthetimes.com/a...the-times.html

They also have a Facebook page.

The rally is a fresh start due to rising attendance at previous rallies, at a new campground, and is not specifically a tin can tourist rally.

Limiting the attendance to trailers of a certain age seems consistent with the new rally's intended goals IMO, given a limited number of campsites.

PS -- A quote from the About Us page linked above:
"That leads us to today. No longer called the North Georgia Vintage Trailer Rally we took on a new name and a new location. Pine Mountain RV Resort is a big, full service campground with a large pavilion and tons of amenities. It has been the national rally location for Bluebird Wanderlodge motorhomes for many years. Last year we had campers come from as far away as Massachusetts and Montana so don't let distance stop you. We can promise that you will have a time to remember and be back the following year. See you at Pine Mountain next Fall!"

PS2 -- The photo/video gallery from this year reveals a number of interesting vintage trailers IMO:

well stated. The Tin Can Tourists back other rallys that are not officially sanctioned. They merely offer them on their web page to encourage attendance. The MOTORAMA is another example, open to 1989 and earlier.

For me its refreshing to be in a club with lots of members and little headaches. You can only get a rally on their web site if you are a member organizing it.

I believe the "Vintage Rally at Piano Beach (I believe this is correct location) has age restriction on attendees. It is open to all makes, models of older trailers. We have a "Vintage AS" 1984 to VAC guidelines. Can't go to Piano as attendee, but can go as a observer. Good luck with the above mentioned rally. I am guessing it will fill up. ��

Gathering of the Times rally

Hi,

My name is Pete Whitley and I am hosting Gathering Of The Times vintage trailer rally in Pine Mountain, Ga next fall. I would like to thank Alan David for helping spread the word. This is a vintage trailer rally not an Airstream exclusive rally. There will be many varieties of vintage trailers there including Airstreams, Spartans, Avions, Silver Streaks, and Streamlines. There will also be an excellent example of a 1955 Wally Byam Holiday. This is not a Tin Can Tourist sponsored rally. I just advertised through them and have their blessing. It is open for any vintage trailers, campers, and motorhomes built before 1980. Hope to see you there!
