Airstreaming in the Heart of Indiana
Why should I join?? What does the Airstream Club do? The Central Indiana Airstream Club welcomes all WBCCI members and prospective members to attend our Rallies, Caravans, and Luncheons. We come from a variety of backgrounds but have a love of Airstreams in common. Our rallies offer tours, pitch-ins, meals out, and lots of fellowship around the campfire. We are all about fun and adventures.
We are Club number 041 and part of Region 5, formed in 1962.
Welcome to 2020 and to our first newsletter of the new year. Thanks again our Editor Joe!

Hello CIACers and Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable and warm Christmas holiday and were surrounded by family
and friends. As this is being written, Mary Ellen and I have our oldest daughter and her husband
with us, along with four grandchildren (ages 6 to 16), two dogs and two cats. It’s been a very
busy – and noisy – week in our home, but we love it!
This is a reminder of our upcoming Club luncheon this Saturday (January 4, 2020, 11:00 AM) at

member Dave Ansel will demonstrate his hot glue dent puller and we will continue working on
our Club logo. Please plan to join us for lunch if you can. We should be in a banquet room this
For those who will be in Florida this month, one of the largest RV shows in the country will be at
the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, January 15-19, 2020. This is the Florida RV Supershow.
According to web information, Airstream Corporate and the Airstream of South Florida
dealership will be there. In addition to the Tampa show, there are several other RV shows in
Florida between January and March, including Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach, and
Ocala. Just another reason to be in Florida during the winter! Here’s a link to more information:
A final reminder: Our upcoming club Season Opener will be at Brown County State Park, May 1-

The October weekender is a few short weeks away! Donna is bringing chili and hot dogs for roasting. Lisa and Tom Fry are bringing chili too. Please bring your favorite sides/dessert.
I’m planning on Saturday morning to visit the Milan 54 Museum in nearby Milan. I’m hoping to have a team member of the 1954 state basketball champs lead the tour. I’ve arranged to have the Visitors Center in Versailles put together a packet of local restaurants and attractions for each camper. I have reserved the Schimmerhorn shelter should we need it.
Saturday afternoon we’ll have a business meeting. During the meeting we’ll vote yes/no to have Artie Martin as 2nd V.P. for Region 5.
We’ll be voting yes/no for the officers for CIAC.
I’ll have firewood, so bring your roasting sticks and we hope to see you soon.
