Well it is for rallies and has had quite a good track record especially here in Michigan and Ohio, not to mention Florida's Can Opener. Perhaps someone would like to resurrect "the best forums rally" threads to remind members that long before TAC was a gleam in Rob and Frank's eyes Air Forums was getting her done and will still continue to do so. Sure there's room for more clubs ...but just don't relegate Air Forums to only being a forum and not a club because TAC wants to have the scoop on the whole business. Nope. Forum rallies were here first and they haven't dried up and become obsolete even with TAC's current thunder.

This is the best way I think anyone could have put it. Every forum event I attend or host is open to everyone, doesn't have rules or strict organization, and is all about fun.

While there are other "Airforum Clubs", you won't see me towing around my trailer with a sticker stating AM-1 for "AIR Midwest. It is a forum's club, and the forum has their own numbers. I feel numbers are an unnecessary part or organization whatever the club. Numerous times have I run across other Airstream owners with or without my trailer, and I have never let numbers or the lack of numbers from saying hello, finding out where they were from, etc. Just having a love for Airstream is what brings everyone together.

Maybe the problem is calling "just camping together" a rally.

The word rally doesn't seem laid back enough.

Definitions of rally on the Web:
  • beat up: gather; "drum up support"
  • a large gathering of people intended to arouse enthusiasm
  • call up: call to arms; of military personnel
  • the feat of mustering strength for a renewed effort; "he singled to start a rally in the 9th inning"; "he feared the rallying of their troops for a counterattack"
  • muster: gather or bring together; "muster the courage to do something"; "she rallied her intellect"; "Summon all your courage"
  • a marked recovery of strength or spirits during an illness
  • return to a former condition; "The jilted lover soon rallied and found new friends"; "The stock market rallied"
  • an automobile race run over public roads
  • tease: harass with persistent criticism or carping; "The children teased the new teacher"; "Don't ride me so hard over my failure"; "His fellow workers razzed him when he wore a jacket and tie"
  • (sports) an unbroken sequence of several successive strokes; "after a short rally Connors won the point"
Maybe a new word should be coined.

Since TAC is an acronym. tac could be used as a word, either a verb or a noun depending on context.

For examble:

Does any one want to tac at the blue SP - verb

Let's have a tac at Red SP - Noun

'Just camping together' is really long in print........ as the resident rally event ad maker I'm adding my 2 cents for brevity

Damn, I though these were Led Zepplin lyrics. Glitter, gold, Robert Plant....

Based on timing I expect the the first ever joint WBCCI / AirForums / TAC Rally will happen here...

I wouldn't miss it for the world. Easy to say as I was already planning on being in the area.

I stumbled across this thead today while organizing my "subscribed" threads. Thought it was worthy of a bump.

I stand by my earlier comments that Air Forums has staying power and is the club that's not a club - exchange information, meet people, go camping... or not.

Hey TAC Folks. When everything crashed, I never updated you with our contact info. I think we were NH-1 or NH-3 or something like that!

TAC is dead.
Folks have moved on to other activities or back to the new and improved Wally Byam Airstream Club.
