Vintage Advantage Newsletter

The latest issue of the Vintage Advantage Newsletter has been mailed out. Unfortunately, an error by the printer caused the cover to be printed incorrectly - it was printed at about 15% of the full purple metallic color it should have been.
It looks bad and is hard to read. We apologize for the error. we are going to be working more closely with our printer to ensure the quality is perfect for the next issue.
I will have the latest issue uploaded up to the web for registered users this weekend. Until then, this is what the cover SHOULD have looked like:

Glad to see that the upcoming WBCC International Rally highlights are included in this issue. I've been trying to find them for a couple of weeks now.

Great job.

Thanks,

Lorrie and I got ours today too. It looks great and if you had not told us, I would have not known the cover was mis-printed. I look forward to reading all the stories.

VAC Still Around?

Owning several vintage Airstreams, I decided to join the VAC. Maybe I should have asked these questions before signing up. How active is this group? I see the last published newsletter was back in 2011. Is this group still in existence? Thanks!

The group is very much alive. We now have about 600 members. VAC is an interclub of WBCCI, so you need to be a member of WBCCI ($65) to become a full member of VAC. There are 12 Regions within WBCCI and Penn. is in Region 2. To learn more about the local units that are available to you and the activities past and planned use this linkhttp://wbcci.org/home/regions-a-units/region-2

Each Region has a VAC rep. assigned.
Use this link to go there: http://vintageairstreamclub.com/

Tim K. is currently working on upgrading the VAC website. You can join VAC, and pay your $20 dues, on line at that website.

Your rep, is Bob Novak (11411)
vacregion2@vintageairstreamclub.com
1550 Sunrise Hwy
Copiague, NY 11726

Contact Bob for further information and what VAC events are planned for VAC your area next year.

I'll second what Dwight said. VAC is still very much alive. Regarding the Vintage Advantage, VAC now has an email newsletter that comes out more frequently to keep members informed of upcoming VAC events.

VAC Website & past publications

I just want everybody to know that hopefully by the end of the year I will have the "new" VAC website up and running. Along with that I will have all of the past Vintage Advantage newsletters published. I have been focusing a lot of attention in many directions including the new WBCCI website. But each as I can do them.
I will say that if anybody wants to be an assistant webmaster to the new VAC site, I could use your help. There isn't tons of work to do, but any help on it will help me tremendously. Just let me know if you want to help out.

Tim
