Want to join us?
Ed and Eileen are offering a mid winter break to gather and talk Airstreams!
Save the date - Saturday March 28th 2015.

In 2014 some of us with vintage Airstreams and friends gathered together in Onawa for a rally.
Enough of us had fun that we want to meet up again. Join us?
A rally is being planned for late June, with details to follow asap.

If you want to join the new Facebook Group - Vintage Airstream Club Midwest VAC WBCCI Region 8 - just let me know. This is started as a closed group.

I'm really looking forward to meeting you, or seeing you again!
Kathy

Midwinter Vintage get together

Hi Mike and Kathy,

Everyone is welcome! We will hold it in our heated shed where we are restoring the '59 Tradewind. Don't have a agenda yet but anything vintage will be fair game. We can also talk solar since we are just finishing our solar installation on the '94.

You do not need to own a trailer (vintage or otherwise) to attend. In fact, if you are thinking you might want to consider vintage this would be a good opportunity to talk to people who have vintage trailers and see our two vintage trailers the '51 Flying Cloud (as is not restored) and the Tradewind (in the middle of a body off restoration).

Topics will include plumbing, flooring, electrical, propane, frames, etc.

We will also have scrap aluminum set up for those that would like to practice buck riveting.

We will probably start about 10:00 a.m. Early arrivals can join me for home made blueberry buttermilk pancakes. The event is free and we will provide a mid afternoon meal plus snacks.

Suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

Ed and Eileen

Mike

We will love to have you!
Our group is vintage and friends.
Ed & Eileen's solar power will be interesting - vintage, newer, or "just looking".
It will be fun for anyone with an Airstream interest.

This sounds wonderful!
Can we bring a side dish for the mid-afternoon meal?

Midwest VAC Region 8 Rally 2015 - Urban Rally in Blackwater MO

As Lee posted on Facebook earlier today, here is the first information on a Midwest VAC Region 8 Rally.

We are trying something new this year. Last year we were in Onawa, Iowa and had a great time. This year we are organizing an “Urban Rally” in Blackwater MO. If you are not familiar with the concept of urban camping here is a website to go to for more information: http://www.wakeupdowntown.com/


The probable dates are June 12, 13, and 14.
Our tentative rendezvous point will probably be the Arrow Rock State Park MO.
More information will be coming.
At this point, let either Kathy & Scott Allen or Joyce & Lee Cantrell know of your interest.

Blackwater MO is just north of Interstate 70.
Their website is http://blackwatermissouri.weebly.com/
Their Facebook page is: https://facebook.com/pages/Blackwate...76194085877793

Scott, Kathy, Joyce, and Lee are still working out the details.
The rally timing is designed for members on their way to the International rally.
This rally is 3 weeks before the International rally
This rally is 2 weeks before the VAC “Roaming Rally” which begins in Durango, CO.
This rally is also for members who are not attending the International rally but want to rally in Region 8.

If you are interested, please contact the Allen’s WBCCI #3534, or the Cantrells WBCCI 4241 cljccantrell@gmail.com.

Again, this rally is in the beginning planning stages, we just wanted to start getting the word out.
