As we get closer, we will be asking attendees about their interests. Deadline for your registration is Aug 1. This is an Airstream Club rally. If you are not a member, but own an Airstream, and would like to attend as a Guest, please contact the hosts.

If you would like to come earlier or stay longer you are welcome to do that, just let the folks at Rose Valley know your plans. If you arrive early and would like to, we can put together a dinner or meet at a local restaurant.

For those who want to join us we’ll be heading 7 miles north for dinner in Pinos Altos at the Buckhorn Saloon and Opera House.
