We are members of the "other" Washington club, the North Cascades Unit, and welcome you to any event. Our club is small, has around 4-5 rallies a year. In April on Whidbey Is, May in Lynden, July Stanwood, & August Hoodsport.

We enjoy the Oregon units events, and also attend the BC units, both are fun and welcoming groups.

Thanks everybody for the invites. We will sure try to attend some of your rallies this spring and summer. We are moving over to Fort Flagler to help out for a couple of months the first of the year, but will keep track of everybody on the web. Thanks Mike

Hey there Monah... Quick question...

How do these rallies usually go down? Everyone with an AS, meeting up to camp together?

Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark - generally speaking that's what we do. The rallies are organized by members of the Wally Club (my abbreviation for WBCCI) based on their physical location. The Oregon Unit...and I'm sure our friends in Washington and elsewhere....invite AS owners who aren't yet members to join us as guests so you can get a sense of the activities & membership.

Because quite a few of our members are still working and their time is precious - our rallies usually begin Friday and end Sunday...with some starting on Thursday. Some meals are potluck, some hosted, lots of fun activities (bicycle rides, sightseeing, etc.).

Hope that helps

Mona

Thanks Monah!

More questions! What's the typical average age of the group members?

My wife and I are both 30. We are totally new to AS's and just picked up our AS late this fall and haven't
even had it out yet...

From an earlier post you had mentioned about having a campout in June in the Tri-citires.
I think at the moment Ill keep that in mind to shoot for. For just a trip or two do I need to sign up
with the club?

During the cold winter months I am trying to research this and that on the AS's. I have my
work cut out for me. Are you also one to talk to about advice on shining up an AS?
Sometimes I have found it easier to talk to someone that has done it before an read through pages of
posts/ blogs.

Thanks.

Mark

Hey Mark -
Feel free to ask as many questions as you want! I'll answer from the perspective of the Oregon Unit and invite others chime in. The Oregon group is a very diverse group - we have quite a few couples in their 30's with children...one who will be attending his first rally as a 1-year old in May as well as several members who are still working, just retired or long time members who are the heart & sole of our club. It's been really awesome to see those members become re-energized by the youthfullness of our members, regardless of their age.

Several of our new members have found us through social media, primarily Facebook and others come to us through our work with the local Airstream dealer in Portland. I think it's a good idea to attend a rally or two so that you get a sense of the members and the fun we have together. Can't remember if I posted a link to our Facebook page before but just in case here you go: http://www.facebook.com/OregonWallyClub?ref=ts&fref=ts

The January issue of our newsletter will have all of our rally info so when it's published I'll be sure to send you a copy. Look forward to meeting you in the New Year!

Mona

Mark - me again. Totally forgot to answer your ? regarding polishing. you're correct...you most definitely have your work cut out for you. We polished our '69 Tradewind...having to remove clear coat (not so much fun) and about 200 hours polishing her. The couple who are hosting the June rally polished both of theirs and also helped with ours...let me know if there's anything I/we can do to help.

Thanks Monah for the info on the rallies! That kind of stuff is good to know!

As far as the polishing.... I found a website I am trying to remember off hand. But I think it was
www.Vintagetrailersupply.com. They had the dual polishing head with different levels of abrasives.
Is that where I need to start on gathering equipment? I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for all the help,

Mark
