Maritime Holiday April Press Release

Published: March 29, 2008

Cape Tryon lighthouse What’s that I hear? It is true, Bob says there is deep sea fishing charter boats real close to the rally site and great golf courses near by. So bring your golf clubs and enjoy. Don’t fish? Well how about going to one of the several “clam beds” and dig for clams. You bring the clams and we’ll cook them. Don’t like to dig for clams but love to eat them – there are lots of fine lobster restaurants all over the island and a great steakhouse in Charlestown. Charlestown is only 15 minutes from the rally site.

While touring the island, plan to see the theatrical play “Spirit of the Islands” sightseeing is great – bring digital camera and plenty of batteries. Or a good paint set with lots of canvas.

Several of the seminars have special booklets which will be given to attendees. These include RV communications, wheels, bearings and brakes, power sources for RV’s, water filtration and purification and others.

On Friday, we are having a great open house with a flea market, craft displays and sales by local community members, a vintage trailer display and new trailers on display. There will be a BBQ all afternoon.

What a week this will be, DJ’s and dancing, fiddles, bingo, and more.
And did i mention the breakfasts and dinners that are included as well as the happy hours and much more – door prizes, raffles, silent auctions

Although the Canadian Atlantic Unit has had many rallies on Prince Edward Island, this is the first regional rally held there. Now, if you were to miss this year’s Region 1 Rally, it may well be 18 years to the next regional rally in PEI. Why, because the Canadian Atlantic Unit covers three providences – New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and PEI. Now CAU only hosts a region rally every six years and since they have three different providences to cover, it may well be 18 years to the next one.

This is one rally you do not want to miss. For more info contact host Bob Thompson (WBCCI 280), the address is in the WBCCI directory or e-mail at So load up the Airstream and join us in Prince Edward Island.

Bob Thompson, your rally host
