So the rockets sound like they are popular. Any model boat people? I built a 1930's Barrel Back Race Boat from a kit 10 years ago. The kit, remote control, and motor cost me close to $500. Over 300 hours went into building it. It does a scale 100mph on the water. I have always been afraid to put it in the water. The Bash will be it's maiden voyage.

The check is in the mail. How close to the 115 allotted are we? As a sidebar, it is our intent to go up to the TAC Clear Lake, Minn rally when this is done. If anyone wants to caravan, it might be fun to see how much trouble we can get into going thru Chicago during rush hour :-)

Funny you mention that...caravanning to the MN rally. Andrea and I are contemplating the same thing. I see you're on the "yes" list for the TAC-OH rally in April. ts8501 is planning to be at the OH rally...perhaps we can work on other TAC'ers to make the caravan from the Bash to MN, too!

Caravan From Penn Wood

A few of us from Penn Wood will be making the short run down to the bash so anybody wanting to caravan in with us let us know and we'll set up a mini-caravan. It would be great to see a long "silver snake" of Airstreams pulling in at one time. Plus it will keep Obie busy

For the last three winters, or as time permits, I've been laboring on a 1/8 scale 1930 24' Chris-Craft Mahogany Runabout. She's all planked, sanded, and ready to be glassed. She won't be ready for Bash II, but maybe Bash III or IV. Then we can have wooden boat races!

Maybe we could sneak into PennWood and tag onto their caravan to the Birthday Bash, just to practice for the trip to Minn. I'm proposing we call a long silver snake, the TAC Goat Dance. BTW, thats a great looking boat. If I did it, it would look like Homer Simpson's do it yourself BBQ grill.

Oh, yeah... almost forgot. We launched a web site today. It is still being built out. Yes that is DOT INFO. This is an info site about the BirthdayBash. It is one page just launched at this point. Any photos from last years Bash that you care to share would be appreciated.

a look back at the 1st Annual Birthday Bash

The learning curve was uphill but I finally managed to figure out how to take my video from camera to Windows MovieMaker to YouTube. I just wish that I had more footage but that's what happens when there are no rules!

YouTube - Airstreams at Birthday Bash 2010


The buzz about a caravan to the Mn Tac rally July 8-10, 2011 is great! Sounds like it's gonna be a party. My band is playing Saturday night and we will be camping with y'all.

Have a super 2nd Annual Birthday Bash. It looks like it's on track to be a killer!

Hansen!!

You are the man. That brings back memories (not just the sound of snoring coming from your trailer either).

Definately a once in a lifetime experience.

Thanks!
Tom

My God, that video got me pumped for this year. Thank you so much Steve. I cannot wait to camp with you again....

On a very happy note I would like to announce that ArtStream is going to be joining us again this year. You see him there playing the drums with Antsy and Grant under the awning. Talk about an intimate concert!!! Michael will be front and center with his shirts. Hopefully he will pull out the drum set and entertain us again.

Rose the Kettle Korn Lady will be there again this year too. She will also have her kettle going from time to time. Not sure how much she charges, but it is well worth the cost.

We are actively working on more vendors. If anyone has any suggestions or wants to help us out with door prizes, they will be gratefully accepted.
