Mid-Winter IBT Meeting

IMG_0028

The WBCCI Mid-Winter IBT meeting was held January 10-14 in Rayne, Louisiana.  Region 5 members in attendance included, left to right, Monte Barksdale from the Illinois Lincolnland Unit, Shala & Larry Wilson from the Kentucky Unit, Jerry (& Louise taking photo) Humble from the Southern Illinois Unit, and Karen & Barry Bell from the Central Indiana Unit.

Kickoff of the Rally Season

The fifth annual AirForums “Back to the Basics” Rally at Hidden Springs State Forest was featured as the Southern Illinois Unit’s April rally.  We had six units from Illinois, Iowa and Florida.

The rally was very laid back with no schedule and no business meeting.  The only guarantee was that there would be a campfire burning all weekend.

The weather was perfect for boondocking and nobody ran out of battery power.  Lots of great food was prepared over the fire and Saturday’s potluck had a wide selection of gourmet dishes.

Take a look at the photo gallery below.  Hopefully we can fill out the entire loop next year with twelve units.
