The Northern Illinois Airstream crowd
Business meeting

We had a great show up with 18 trailering couples plus 7 more members who drove in Saturday for the business meeting and the great Turkey feast, featuring two roasted and one deep fried turkey. The club members brought along many interesting dishes to pass. Weather was good. The Unit grill was used for Friday dinner and the large indoors commercial kitchen for the rest of the meals. The Unit projector was used for the business meeting and to watch some of Wally’s old adventures, as well as an Airstream plant tour out of the 50’s. Thanks to all those that participated.
