VAC National and Region Rallies

July 7 – 10, 2017:  VAC Region 10 Vintage Rally, Farragut State Park, Sandpoint ID.  Rally hosts are Rob and Diane Nicol, VAC Region 10 representatives.  For registration information/questions contact them at robnicol@comcast.net or call (541) 745-7761.

Back by popular demand, the 2017 Region 10 VAC rally will be held once again at beautiful Farragut State Park in western Idaho.  Last year was the first time we’d used the park and we didn’t have nearly enough time to take advantage of all there was to do.

There are just 13 sites left plus a rustic cabin.  Cost for 3 nights, including dinner on Sunday is $135 US per couple.  There is an additional $5 per night fee for non-Idaho residents.  To register, please contact Rob or Diane Nicol by email at robnicol@comcast.net or call (541) 745-7761

Farragut State Park is located on the south end of Lake Pend Oreille, in western Idaho.  It is the former site of Farragut Naval Training Station during World War II that trained nearly 300,000 sailors in 30 months of operation.  It also housed a POW camp for captured German soldiers.  The museum at the Brig honors that legacy and includes restored vehicles, memorabilia, and films on area history and geology.

There are over 40 miles of trails to explore, plus swimming, boating and disc golf available in the park.  There is also a radio-controlled plane airfield at the park.  Silverwood Theme Park is a short distance away.

VAC Parade into Escanaba International Rally site:  Thursday July 20, 2017 at 11:00 am.  WBCCI has asked us to provide the name and WBCCI number of those units participating in the parade into the International Rally so they can streamline parking after the parade.  The city of Escanaba and WBCCI President Richard Girard would like a big turnout for the parade which may include city fire engines and other city vehicles.  Richard (VAC member) will lead the parade with his vintage Airstream.

Please also let Victor Blood know at 1vp@vintageairstreamclub.com if you would like to join us in the parade through Escanaba and into the international rally ground.
