Branson's finest...Table Rock! Or maybe even Taney? Water & elect. hook-ups, fishing for some, but still close enough to Branson's conveniences and shopping. I suppose the only problem would be reserving spaces together at a state park...but maybe there are other privately owned ones near the water? Just an idea, and please send out your thoughts and ideas. I can't be a host because we are putting our house on the market about March and have a lot of preparation to do for that, and no idea what will be happening in April, but I will help do what I can with whoever will come forward to be host. I also think Acorn Acres is a great place for our needs too, just thought a water-front place might be interesting.
So here are a few pics from Friday night's campfire...

here are some from the Sat. open house, waiting to start the tour and Carol handing out her home-made Airstream cookies. Then Phyllis with her beautiful curtains, Shane & Kathy's great '53 FC work in progress, then Kathy's sister's Mark Twain was a real treat to see...beautifully done!

Here is John & Charles' nicely recoved sofa & love the bed covers in their '93 30' Excella. Next two are of Jay & Terry's brand new International...warm, bright & big! Then Tikiman's cool island-themed digs in their '68, then Isadora's '76 Argosy done up for Fall & them inside... orig. lime green countertops! Last is Max Well's colorful '71 Caravaner...way to go on the curtains and covers...She did them herself!

We are on the way home. We'll get our photos up as soon as possible. Ag71 won the draw we held because all the BBQ was so good we couldn't choose (or eat) just one! So he will be receiving a wonderful Citizens Eco watch from Brad. And then Marc & Sharon also won the vote for best open house presentation. Can't wait to show you the photos!

Jay53 has our group photo and many others. They pulled out this morning bound for St. Louis, so I'm sure he'll put photos up, too, after they get settled back in & rest up.

We had such a great rally because of all the wonderful people who attended - each one made it better! You are all such a great bunch of folks to camp with!

Phyllis & Tim, Terry & Jay, thank you so much! It couldn't have been the rally it was without you guys! But others helped so much, too! Carol & Drew, Joe & Nikki, Brad & Zell, Aw, all of you helped, and it was truly a group effort. And, not to be mooshy, but, we love our AIR Midwest friends, the ones we met in the spring, and you folks we met this time. You rock!

Whoa! Ghostriders! There is much to be considered when setting the rally place! Acorn acres has been home for a while and they contribute a $300 rec hall with kitchen, equipment, etc.

We've gotten the part about keeping us together worked out and Tommy & Cheryl said they'd always make room "for our airstreamers."

We need to poll on the date and place. But I, for one, would not be for moving it. It has a storm cellar big enough for us to cram in, and that was a comfort last spring! But, the majority will have to rule. We'll set up polls, etc.

We also are contributing the money you raised to cover expenses to the next rally! It was so kind of you, but we didn't mind a little expense, and it wasn't bad split between all three couples.

Hmmm, I read over my last post, and thought it didn't sound like I meant it to. I meant, if the majority wants to move the rally, I'm just one vote. I also meant we will have a little moola for the next hosts to start with, so that's cool! I hope you all know, everyones opinion counts, and mine is just one! :-)

One more request- if you have a chance, please thank our generous sponsors! Maybe they'll keep those great prizes coming. It was, of course, Blair Prestin & Reliable RV out of Springfield, Crain RV, the new Arkansas Airstream dealers, Bill Thomas RV of St. Louis area, Brad Mitchell, and Acorn Acres. The campground loves reviews on Trip Advisor, etc.

Thank-you all for a truly wonderful first-time rally for us. We felt right at home with such great people and feel we have made some great new friends!
Thanks to Carol, Terry & Phyllis...you all did a great job!! We will certainly plan for the spring rally also. Is there anyway we can make it at the lake?
That would be awesome..we love camping near the water...just a thought!!
I took some great pictures I will try to start uploading soon.
Brad, the Colliers took home all the bacon!! (lol)..they won the best presentation and best bar-be-que. (although, they drew names for the food, it was all so good). Has anyone seen a more unique and lovely Airstream as theirs? WOW! Jim and I came in 2nd place...another WOW!...there were so many great ones! AND I drew number 1 for the drawing, so we went home with one of the great chairs from BT! Yay! Shane & Kathy got the $250 gift certificate from Reliable..everyone cheered for that one...too appropriate! So much more fun stuff, but I won't keep going on and on!
Thanks everyone!
Debi & Jim

No those first pictures are not of ours, but the winner, who was Sharon & Marc, (Ag71) from Springfield, and I think this was their first rally, as was ours. Hope to meet up with you all sometime, I got the inspiration for my red walls from your blog! Loved it...wish I could see the completion! Debi & Jim

Thanks Carol, I'm not finished posting yet, but had to get something else done today besides internet! lol Shane...your picture is coming!
And Carol, I apologize for sticking my nose in about changing, I didn't realize all the particulars. I had heard from a few others about going to another location, so thought I would throw that out, but I was certainly happy with AA! I am sending a thank-you to BT for the chair! Glad you all made it home ok!

We wanted to thank all of you for allowing us to crash into your rally even in a moho. We had a great time and enjoyed visiting with all of you and seeing your beautiful traylahs. The food was out of this world. Don't even want to think about how much weight we gained. Again thanks to those who put in all the work to make this rally so great.

We left this morning and wandered around Branson a bit and decided to head toward Oklahoma City, not sure why but it sounded like a good idea. We are camped at Cherokee Landing State Park. It was a pleasant drive through some nice back country roads. As soon as we got here we were treated to a great lightning show. It was off in the distance but really lit things up reflecting off of the lake. Quite a show.

Anyway thanks again for the wonderful weekend, Dan, Irene and Hagar

I just wanted to thank you all for making our first rally a great experience! We felt welcome from the first moment we pulled in when you all "swarmed" us to the moment we pulled out. Thank you all for sharing your beautiful trailers and your great ideas. And thanks especially for making us feel so welcomed.

Ken and Nan
