I thought I would bump this to the top for various reasons.

First of all, we have many new members to this forum who are either looking to buy an Eagle bus, or who are just starting down the conversion path. There is no better place to meet Eagle bus owners and get a diploma in Eagle Buses 101 (maybe as high as 301 :D ).

Secondly, I want to make sure that folks get this rally on their calendar and make plans to attend what has traditionally been a great rally.

Lastly, we need to emphasize that, while this is a rally sponsored by the Eagles International Chapter, everyone is welcome to attend. If you don't have a bus yet, or it is not yet in a condition to travel, you should still put this one on your calendar.

I wanted to bump this to the top to make sure that folks have another chance to learn about this great rally.

This rally has become a tradition for Eagle bus owners. It is held every other year and is a very fun, laid back rally.

We have had several new folks join our group. Some are new owners and a few others are looking for Eagles. There is simply not a better place in the world to learn about Eagle ownership/maintenance/etc. The combined knowledge of the owners/builders who attend is amazing.

You do not have to own an Eagle or bring your Eagle to the rally. If you have to stay in a hotel, you can still pick a few brains :o and have a ton of fun.

Our money is in the neighborhood of Branson as I type. Really looking forward to the rally.
I am sure there will be some 30th anniversary Eagles International shirts available there for the first time.

I wanted to again get this thread to the top so that everyone is aware of this great rally.

If you are not sure about your ability to attend, but are thinking about it, let Byron know so that he can plan on adjustments as the time gets closer.

Sadly, we are not going to make it this year (first time in 15 years).

Pat has to have both knees replaced and between my teaching schedule and other factors, the only schedule that works is Sept. 28 for the first one. She will not be able to travel for several weeks after that.

Really bummed, but she has not choice but to get them done ASAP.

Boy, am I having withdrawals. Sure wish I was there. I hope folks are taking pictures to share with those of us that could not make it.

Jim, Yes, plenty of pictures were taken, It has been a great rally. I believe 32 buses attended and we had (6) new members join the club. We missed seeing you! Hope Pat is feeling better.
