Hi Mark....Vintage Trailer Supply is a great resource for polishing supplies...altho you won't need the cyclo polisher just yet. Varying perspectives on which circular polisher works best but we found that the DeWalt with the Velcro 3M heads worked awesome

Thanks Monah.

That's good to know on not needing the dual head polisher right away.
The DeWalt is of good quality to,

Thanks,
Mark

When you get to the polishing stage I would be willing to help (time permitting). I am in Kennewick. Been down for a while but back amoung the living now.

No offense to the hard working Washington members, but just my 2 cents, Oregon is where it is at if you're a bit younger, have a family and are looking for really friendly outgoing club members to welcome you in!

There used to be a Spokane based unit - it was called the Inland Washington Unit. This is the first unit we joined about 10 years ago and after they cashed our check they went out of Business. I got a letter from the WBCCI office explaining that we had been merged into the Lacey WA unit.

A few weeks later I called the WA unit to inquire about attending our first rally (new airstreamers). They were less than welcoming, not sure that our argosy was allowed, hadn't heard of the merger, etc. They finally said they needed to confirm all this and would get back to me - they never did. I think the Lacey Unit has improved their outreach efforts since then but I joined the Oregon Unit and have never looked back.

I live in the tri-cities (not quite Spokane) and hang out some here at AIR forums

Did you know the OR unit is planning a rally this June in Pasco?

I ride BMW motorcycles and clubs can be a hassle. I can certainly understand folks wanting a more informal group setting. Politics and clubs is no fun...especially when money is involved. $90 is a bit steep to join a club especially since the WA state campground is in Olympia. IMHO.

Like my BMW aspirations.. I just want to ride and learn more about that hobby and the same can be said for this experience. I learned a lot from the Web and Air Forums has been a great resource. I just wish more folks would post picture s of their projects and become supporting members.

Hi All -I checked the Oregon and North Cascades websites last week, and only the 2012 dates are listed. Also, the latest newsletters are not up.

Sadly, same here. I called to attend a rally. I was too late to sign up. I didn't get a "sorry we missed you, we'd have loved to meet you." It was more like "so sad, too bad."

I attended one rally with the Vintage Airstream group, and ran across a couple from the Alaska caravan during vacation. Had great chats with them all.

And while I'm thinking about it, can we update the event form from "luncheon" to "lunch"? No one goes to "luncheons" any more.

LL2, our experience the last 2 years with Oregon has been great. If we want to go to a function cool, if we'd rather go into town and check things out, or take the kids to the playground, or just hang in the trailer, there is no pressure, except someone maybe coming over with some of Doug's kick butt food to fatten us up some more. Mona's a hoot, kids love her to death, and she's a pro with sidewalk chalk.

Thanks! Our kids are grown, but I can still do sidewalk chalk.
