May 2017 Update (Odds and Ends)

At the last luncheon meeting at Brunswick, we discussed updating our unit name to include the word “Airstream”. This was a suggestion from Region 3 to make the sites more search friendly to the public. Well, that has been put on hold because the lawyers at Thor (the parent of Airstream) is reviewing their policies of free use of the “Airstream” name. It has now also been recommended that the state name be the first on the unit name to enhance membership. This will be up for discussion.

There were 4 members present at the Region 3 rally at Hiawassee. The park is very scenic, but had some challenging spots. Ray Lewis had to move because his 30 footer was too long to handle the grade change and was hitting bottom. There was a lot of entertainment and food. As president, Ray represented our unit in the opening flag ceremony.

As a member, you are invited to join any unit’s rally. I (Barry) attended a rally sponsored by the Southeast Campers Unit held at Veterans State Park in Cordele, Ga. Kathy Narowski from SE Campers was the host and we had nice water front lots. Even had a bagpipe concert!

April 2017 Update

Hi Everyone

Those of you that missed the last rally at Bull Creek really missed out on a good one.  I believe that rally was one of our better rallies.  Thursday night we ate at the restaurant on the grounds.  It was a really good meal and prices were reasonable.  We had breakfast at the restaurant on Friday morning. During the day Friday several folks tried their hand at fishing.  A couple of mud fish were caught.  We had a visitor hanging around,  It was about a 3 foot alligator.  It did not bother anything just laid on the stump sunning.  Friday night we had a low country boil.  Everybody ate until their gut was stuffed then waddled on back to their Airstream.  We had some rain but it did not hinder our activities.  Saturday night we had steak night with everyone bringing a side dish.  There was plenty of food and great company and good conversation. We had an at large visitor form the Tampa area join us on the rally.   His name was Paul Emick #9008.  He said he had a great time and may join us again.  We enjoyed Paul’s company during the rally.

We have several activities coming up.  First, will be the Region 3 Rally in Hiawassee Ga.  The rally is scheduled for April 26 thru April 30, 2017.  Many have already mention they will not be able to attend this rally but there are several who will.  As of right now myself, Barry Fuller and Stu and Mary Soule will be attending.

Our next Coastal Ga. Airstream Club Rally will be at Blythe Island on May 4 thru May 7, 2017.  Go ahead and make your reservations and be sure to tell them you are with the Airstream group.  They said they would try and keep us together.  Let me know once your reservations are made so I can have a good head count.

See Ya There

Ray Lewis, President

February 2017 Update

On Feb. 3rd, we had a joint rally with the South Carolina Coastal Unit 150 at Walterboro, SC. This was the first joint rally in recent history that anyone can recall. We took up a large part of the park and the food was great. Kathy Narowski, their president, led the ceremonies with the Superbowl theme.  We hope that we can do another joint rally next year. Thank you Coastal South Carolina.

Year End Rally

coastal1 coastal2 untitledLike each year, we wrapped it up at Georgia GA RV Resort in Brunswick. There was a good turnout, I believe it was nine units. We ended with a meeting by the clubhouse fireplace with a spaghetti supper. The same officers will remain in place for another year.  There was a discussion on next year’s rallies, with the first one being an invite from the South Carolina Coastal Unit for a joint rally at Green Acres in Walterboro, SC on Feb. 3rd. This is probably a first for this Unit. Before that will be the Winter luncheon on Jan. 14th.

International Rally 2016

On June 21st, President Ray Lewis and VP Barry Fuller caravanned to Lewisburg, WV for the International rally, a first for both of us. We made two stops enroute and then arrived three days early because of the registration and parking procedures. Over 700 units arrived eventually. We were put to ourselves on a hill, which we were not happy about until the floods started. We were high and dry and eventually others were parked with us. when the floods came to WV, we experienced electrical outages and a water boil mandate. But the show went on and we learned a lot and made new friends. Some of the other Southeast units entertained doing some joint rallies.
After the rally Ray caravanned with Barry to Northern WV to Barry’s place near Capon Bridge, WV. There we did the tourist and sight seeing thing. There is 30 amp power and all are invited to stop in on the river in WV.

Our Latest Rallies

Maddie&FranWe have had a busy hot Georgia Summer! Since the last update, we sponsored a rally at Hoboken, GA, Reed Bingham SP and Crooked River SP. At Twin Oaks in Hoboken, we had the complete camp to ourselves and plenty of Spaghetti for all and more. In June at Reed Bingham SP near Valdosta, there was a plethora of chicken in many ways. One night Barry and Fran hosted the group to the Pecan farm and had Bar B Qu from Smokin Pig. On the way home both Rays experienced tire blowouts. In August we met some new friends and had homemade ice cream. All of it was good. Later was a huge meal under the pavilion, with all the good stuff, especially the potato salad. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Ft McAllister SP in October, especially the new members.
