“Streamin’ the Region” October Press Release

Published: October 29, 2011

Streamin' the Region
Now that our 2011 camping season is winding down it is time to start ramping up our 2012 Region One Rally planning. As everyone knows, we will be hosting, as a unit, the 2012 Region One Rally at Goose Hollow Campground. We have worked very hard at listening to what WBCCI members have said in the past about region rallies, both positive and not so positive. There is no doubt that taking on the task of hosting such an event is a lot of work and takes a lot of planning. With that said, I feel very good about what our members have accomplished to this point.
First and foremost we have an incredible venue for the event. Formerly an Airstream Park, Goose Hollow offers 200 private sites with water and power, fire pit, and table. 90% of the sites have sewer hookups; for the few that do not have sewer, we will offer pump-out on demand. There will be no crowding of rigs; we will have plenty of space for happy hours and special activities on the lush green lawns of Goose Hollow. There is also a swimming pool along with campground activities such as horse shoes and a bocce tournament. There are some nice local attractions as well.
Special activities we are working on include:

  • Red Hook Beer Tasting
  • Airstream Maintenance Seminar
  • Leather Craft Class
  • Table Fruit Decorating
  • Photography Seminar
  • Pampered Chef Demonstrations
  • Streamin’ the Region Event
  • Pink Flamingo Costume Ball
  • Open Mic Night
  • Vintage Airstream Open House
In the works are possible visits by Zip Dee for installations and repairs, and Vintage Trailer Supply for a talk/demonstration. We would like as many suggestions as possible from our unit members for committee discussions.
We would like to hold an organizational meeting in mid-January. We are asking our unit members for suggestions of dates and locations which would meet our needs and be conveniently located.
The next newsletter will list our existing chairpersons, committees that need help, and open slots. We are open to suggestions for events and input from all members. The important thing to remember is that the unit needs your help to make this a great event. We have a very solid foundation in place and we are all ready to kick off the event planning with each and every one of our unit members as part of the team.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with your suggestions, comments, ideas, or concerns via phone or email: mrjrick@aim.com. Remember, this is our event to make as enjoyable and fun as we have in the past.
To all the committee chairpersons: I want to thank everyone who has stepped forward. To the rest of the unit members: thank you in advance for your help in the coming months as we prepare to host another well-presented and well-attended Region One Rally.

Region One Rally Chairman
