Rally Work Party

We will meet at the Augusta Museum at 9:30 am on Saturday, September 22nd and move stuff on out to the Aviation Museum to store for the rally.

Bring whatever is needed, gloves, water, truck and strong muscles.

2009 Convoy

Gary Allen is ready to go on the 2009 convoy. Here is his personal packing list (Remembering his 50’s and 60’s convoys).

Attention Members

We had a meeting tonight with the leadership of the Kansas Aviation Museum about our rally and what they can do to help make it a success. One of the topics was the media coverage expected: TV, newspapers and radio. To maximize the potential for media coverage, it would be good to have an idea how many of us are planning to attend and what we are going to bring to display at the rally.

If you are planning to attend, could you please let us know right away so we can get the information to the media contacts.

Please try to bring your vehicle, the more vehicles and exhibits the better and bigger the rally. If you haven’t fully restored your vehicle, bring it anyway so we can see how restoring is accomplished. Also, if any of you have military parts or military related things to sell or give to our club store, please bring them.

Thought you might enjoy the article on pages 17 and 18 of the September Supply Line. These are our friends from Topeka. Five of the group came with their M151’s to our first rally. They are the ones who got us into this hobby.
