datibbitts, the short answer is NO IMPACT, but that is obviously not the whole truth. Without WRV, there will be no new coach display, no service, and no sponsorship or sharing of cost for the rally. Without WRV, the dealers have to take the same position, and in fact neither WRV nor a dealer will be at the pre-rally. They, the good people not the $'s, WILL BE sorely missed!

Having said all of that, the rally WILL GO ON and it will be a great rally for those who choose to attend. To use Engineer Mike's words, without a ˜Mother Ship', it is most important that all current owners, not just ACA owners, meet and share our knowledge about how to maintain the coaches. The rally agenda has evolved to allow time for just that. The gear head session will cover information about the Vansco modules, a system in the coach that only a few understand. This information will be new and exciting to many of us.

This in addition to the usual food and fun will set the stage for all the great Alpine folks to gather and have a super time. So if you are an Alpine owner, get and send in a registration and join us there.

Daddy Louie,

I have a 2005 Alpine purchased in Dec 07 and never used. The Vansco Power Distribution Panel and Multiplex Unit are both dead, no input, no output, thus the coach is unusable. I would like to attend this meeting. Are there rooms at the Grand Casino Hotel and is it near. What is the cost to attend without my coach?

Lera

lera,
We would love for you to attend the rally and yes there is a hotel at the casino which is near teh RV park. There are also chalets available. The reservation number is 1-800-995-4726.

Above lodging, the rally cost would be $184 for a couple. This would entitle you to all of the other activities at the rally. Call me at 214-534-0399 and we can work out the details.

Louis

Hi ACA Gang,
Just a quick note to all the ACA folks in Hinckley to say Hello. How about letting us know how the Pre-Rally is going? Pictures would be most appreciated too for those of us unable to attend.

Sure wish we were there. Chuck's treatments start on Monday. Hope to be back on the road in the near future!
Safe travels to all of you.
Marca

Looks like a lot of eatin' and drinkin' going on...but then, what's new for an ACA rally. These are great pics, Louis, but I didn't see the one where the mosquitos were carrying off one of the coaches!

I'm just jealous, and wish we were there. Have a wonderful time there and at FMCA!
