Thanks Tim I see George made it with his new 60 series install in his Eagle I like your photos of all the Eagles in a row even if Hal's doesn't look like a Eagle lol but nice anyway 

Sad to see that rally getting smaller each year the first year we had almost 40 Eagles alone

That was the last Rickreall rally Clifford.  Next year it will be a combo somewhere.  Everybody who registered got their money refunded.  Sad.  Sign of the times I guess.

Timkar

Thanks for the pic's. We really tried to make it this year. Last year we went as wannabes and wonted to show all the people who were so nice our 4106 that they helped us to decide to get one or not. Sorry to here it will be the last. Let us all know where and when on a new one.

Thanks kevin

Mark talking with Dick at Qsite I kinda figured it would be over if attendance wasn't way up this year have to hand it to him he tried his best
Is the club going away also I know they have lost a lot of members  some of us were charter members 

Mark rallies have never been my cup of tea we like traveling with a couple of friends hanging out on a river bank in Idaho some of us  3 or 4 couples will be in Garden Valley Id the end of July and the first week of Aug doing some white water rafting if you and the wife want to join us give me a call
good luck

'Preciate that offer for sure.  Take a rain check for next year?  I'm living in the Eagle near Coburg trying to get the Silverside finished by Sept.  If I can get it done the plan is to take it to the Branson rally in Oct, then on to Gene's to put the new engine/trans in.  The powerpack is all finished and looking good.  I feel the same way about rallys; like to see my friends though.
Dick said the club is not disbanding, just dropping the Rickreall rally and combining with another.  You and my buddy Lyle Davis and Gregory were smart, sold out while the buses were worth something.

I think there is a new Reliabilt and a couple complete core engines with VR731's on them left where I got mine.  I'm looking forward to the 12+ mpg.

George's bus looks good, I'm happy he got the cruise and jakes working. I'm kinda looking for about 20 foot Zip Dee if you or anyone sees a deal on one. For some crazy reason my bus was built with only window awnings.

We were there for about two hours on Sunday. Sorry we didn't hook up with more friends, just didn't have much time. We had a long drive ahead of us and needed to get back on the road.

Mark, We saw your brother pull out. His 4106 sure sounded good!

George's repower looked pretty darn good. He said that a few things need to be finished up but overall very happy with it.

A few busnuts got some good last minute deals on some stuff that needed to find a new home. I'm sure all of the treasures are already installed! Roll Eyes

Clifford who owns that immaculate 4106 that comes to Q with the AZ plates.  Painted in the old LTR colors.  Sure like the looks of that one.
