Feb. 18, 2013 ....This was a busy week with many classes of learning and gathering helpful information about your Airstream way of Life. We met many old friends and new too. Dinners, potlucks, happy hours, entertainment each night, seminars, open house new and vintage Airstreams. There is a lot of pride in the vintage trailers, I sure enjoyed meeting the owners of them. I even had time to make purchases at the flea market. Carol had a stand of paperbacks, she sold out in less than an hour. She made $4.25 and spent $5.00  from others. High profit day?
   The entertainment each night was fun and we had a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors Project and raised over $800 . Door Prizes were great too, I didn’t win this year. Each night they gave away a Fire Kindle to some lucky ticket holder. There were 350 rigs parked on the grounds. Bates Airstream from Florida brought about a 100 rigs to a RV Show that he sponsored. Many of the public were here to see them and also tour the grounds of Airstream Rally. The Vendors were in a building to sell their wares, shirts, computer tech, Tilley Hats, Airstream Store, Polish booths, accessories for the Airstreams  (inside & out) , Jewelry,Flags and Travel Insurance.
  All week was fun filled and hard to see everything. The classes were well attended and helpful ideas were shared. The meals were awesome all catered by the Fairgrounds, this is a one stop Rally Field for all. The staff were there for all needs and solved any right away. The Roberts Arena where we had evening entertainment was updated with new chairs and also brand new bathrooms as well as Wi-Fi for all to use. I would recommend this place for future Rally’s for anyone. 
 The end of the Sarasota Rally, this is the last year for the WBCCI Sponsored Event. They could not fill the chairman’s positions for next year. So R&B Events will be taking over the event with new ideas and format to come. They also run all the Alumapalooza Events nationwide. This event will be called AlumaFlamingo in the future. People already have signed up for next year and they are underway to plan big plans for 2014. You may see it on the Web Site as .  Thank-you to all Volunteers that made this Rally a SUCCESS !!!

  Well it’s time to hook up and move north/west to Louisiana to the Cajun Caravan on March 5th to meet 26 other rigs there and share travel experiences for 2 weeks.. I am READY for the next Airstream Way of Life.. come join Us !!
