VACation in Oregon!

June 20-23, 2018:  Vintage Airstream Club Rendezvous, Brooks, OR.  VACation in Oregon! If you have a vintage Airstream, Argosy, Byam Holiday or Curtis Wright please join us at Powerland Heritage Park (antiquepowerland.com), 3995 Brooklake Rd., Salem, OR 97303 – June 20-23, 2018.  We will be dry camped behind the Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum on the Powerland grounds.  Follow the signs or look for shiny aluminum. While it is dry camping, there are two bathhouses on the property with showers and toilets.  Also, porta potties.  Cost is $25 per night plus an initial $15 entry to the park with unlimited egress and ingress during the Rendezvous.  There is a dump station at the Pilot Station just down the road so pump before you come!  There will be a commemorative VAC Rendezvous sticker and window placard. The Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association Swap Meet is held on the grounds at the same time.  So, with 14 museums on the property, a working trolley, miniature trains and more, it is an action-packed location.  Entry to the museums is included in your one-time $15 fee. The VAC will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary and the Summer Solstice, expect to have fun.  This is the endpoint for the VAC Caravan and the staging point for the police escorted VAC parade into the WBCCI International Rally 8 miles away on June 23.  The Bend Classic will end in time for attendees to make it the 115 miles to the grounds. Expect to see the earliest (masonite sided!) Airstream, the 1936 Silver Cloud.  It is the oldest factory produced Airstream and was on the road and camping before Doc Holman’s 1935 Torpedo (built from plans).  Expect to see the oldest known Curtis Wright and one or more “Around the World Caravan” trailers.  A gathering of 50-year-old 1968 Airstreams is being planned, so bring yours and attend whether or not you are able to attend the WBCCI International Rally! Contact VAC 1VP Dave Morrison at 1vp@vintageairstreamclub.com for further details.

This rally/show has exceptional hosts. The participating trailer folks and accompanying car show delights visitors. IMG_7140   IMG_7104 Tribute concerts are of the highest quality every year (and you can even get up and dance if you choose to do so). IMG_7142   IMG_7149 The staff checks with you throughout the weekend to keep things going (thanks to Tracie with her big, friendly smile who keeps everything balanced and organized). They have a wonderful indoor shuffleboard of the highest quality, a beautiful pool, pickleball and volleyball courts and much, much more. IMG_7078   IMG_7080 Their website states, "...luxurious RV resort in Southern California–top rated by customers and Good Sam Club. Hemet is centrally located in the heart of SoCal’s top vacation destinations. We are located in Hemet, California known for its natural hot mineral springs, Diamond Valley fishing, and Temecula’s Wine region." . . . and it's true! One of the nice features of this weekend is that they have so many sites that your non-vintage trailer camping  friends can book this outing and be right around the corner from you . . . the snowbirds have already returned to their homes. There are 1,000 sites at this resort, so there is plenty of room to get your friends with similar interests together.
