 – Ten members brought their rigs out for a perfect fall weekend.  Saturday, five more couples visited us.  Saturday business meeting, members voted to rename our club ” Northern Illinois Airstream Club”.  To make it official, the International’s IBT and Thor must approve the change at their Jan. 2017 meeting. (NOTE:Thor has put a hold on all name changes having “Airstream” in their name. (Unresolved as of 4/10/17)   Bob Whitesell (Region 5 1st vice president, and NIU member) installed our new officers. Thanks to our outgoing and incoming officers for their volunteered service.

After just baptizing his new truck on the WBCCI Revolutionary War  Caravan, Warren Dutton brought his new 2016 Chevy 250HD 4WD diesel truck for a visit. All the men had to fawn over it in the parking lot.

Dinner was served at 6:30 PM.  Afterwards; using a Smartphone (with unlimited data), married to Club’s video projector (through a laptop) we watched our Chicago Cubs clinch the National Baseball Championship.  After all these years of waiting, it was great!
