Silver In The City in York SC

For Fun and to benefit a cause …..

Beginning in 2018 Palmetto State Airstream Club sponsored a weekend long event in York, South Carolina bringing generations of Airstream travel trailers right through the heart of the White Rose City. Not only to show off their silver beauties, but to benefit a cause. The presence of all the “shiny ones” brought lots of people and support for the local merchants in this small but beautiful town !!

The tradition continues in March 8 — 10, 2019 on the same streets. Come to visit, tour an Airstream, enjoy a GREAT lunch and pick up a custom made T-shirt..

See You Down the Road   ===    Palmetto State Airstream Club

President’s Message

JANUARY LUNCHEON

Hello, Fellow Airstreamers!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everyone!

I hope you all had a blessed and wonderful holiday season. We officially closed out our 2017 scheduled events with the Christmas luncheon on December 9th at the home of the Puryears. There were 29 people in attendance at the luncheon. We also had six rigs camping at The Barnyard Campground in Lexington for the weekend. It goes without saying there was plenty of fun, food and fellowship at the luncheon. We are thankful for all who attended and missed those who were not able to attend for one reason or another.

Our Club will start off the year 2018 with a luncheon on January 20th at Silver Bay in Simpsonville. I want to take this opportunity to encourage our members to attend. You are really missing a good time and we miss seeing you as well. Hopefully, we will have good attendance and get the year started off on a strong, positive note. Also, do not forget our first rally of the year will be held at The Barnyard in February. The dates are February 9th, 10th and 11th. This will be basically a no-host rally, but, not to worry because I am sure we will come up with something that we can do as a group. The meeting facility at The Barnyard is being

expanded so it, more than likely, will not be available to us, hence, the no-host rally. Speaking of rallies, do not forget about our March rally to be held in York. “Silver in the City” will be held in York, March 9 – 11 and to our knowledge it will be the first urban air type rally in our area and possibly even the Region 3 area. I know there is a lot of excitement surrounding this rally and rightfully so! We will talk more about this rally at the luncheon in January, as it is important to get a good number on who will attend the rally.

I hope everyone is anxious to get the 2018 rally season started. I can hardly wait to go to Lake Wateree, Palmetto Cove, Tom Johnson in Marion, NC and the Region 3 Rally in Myrtle Beach. It is going to be a fun year and we should all strive to attend as many rallies as possible. It would be really nice to set some records for number of attendees at our rallies and also pick up some new members along the way. It is real easy to stand still and even easier, yet, to regress. We need to work hard to move forward with our Club in 2018. The year 2017 was a good year, let’s make 2018 a great year! Thank you for all you do for our Club at the local and international level.

We look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future. Safe travels to you all and we will see you around the next bend in the road.

Kind regards,
Terry and Annie

Palmetto State Unit 22 had fun at the Region 3 Rally

There were 12 rigs and 23 members of our unit that were able to attend the Region 3 Rally held recently in Hiawassee, GA at the GA Mountain Campgrounds.   It appears that everyone had a good time and really enjoyed getting together for fun, fellowship and adventure. Looks like a beautiful place to camp! There were helpful seminars and enjoyable entertainment, and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends from other units in Region 3.

If you missed the Feb rally, you missed a good time at Myrtle Beach!

We had 12 members and 3 guests attend the Feb rally at PirateLand Family Campground at Myrtle Beach. The weather was breezy but sunny and we enjoyed a view of the Snow Moon (Feb full moon) over the ocean on Friday night. We had Happy Hour at George and Martha’s motorhome every evening and enjoyed  delicious  seafood and a wonderful Italian meal with the group on Friday and Saturday. Add to that some relaxing (or invigorating) walks on the beach (depending on what day you were on the beach), plenty of fellowship, other good meals with friends, and you get a wonderful rally! It served as a good reminder that Spring and lots more camping is just around the corner.

One couple decided they were not ready to de-winterize their trailer and chose to stay in a rental cabin at the campground, which proved to be very comfortable and convenient. A nice alternative if you want to join the fun but don’t want to tow!

30 Airstream trailers and Motorhomes attended Carolina’s State Rally

Those who attended the Carolinas State Rally enjoyed a great time – lots of fellowship, laughs and of course, food! We saw old friends and made some new ones. Thanks to all who worked so hard to bring it all together – thanks for the helpers in the kitchen, the early risers who helped with breakfast each day and made sure the coffee was made, as well as all the help with the other meals and the President’s reception. I think we all enjoyed the entertainment this year, the repeat performance by the Yesterukes (their website includes photos from our event)          DSC_0078DSC_0119 DSC_0202                                                   as well as a new group : Music Club friends in the Country and our Saturday night feature band , the Mountain Creek Bluegrass Band. The weather was good for Friday, Game Day when we saw who was the best at BB shooting, holey board, golf putting and  hillbilly horseshoes. 

We’re not having the State Rally next year, but hope we see our Airstreamer friends from the other units “down the road”……

Grandkids enjoyed the June Grandkids Rally !

We had more grandkids than ever before at the June Rally – 7 were there for the whole weekend and 3 more joined us for fun on Saturday. The kids had a great time, having fun in the swimming hole, watching movies, playing cards, competing in a “minute to win it” and having their own Jalapeño Pepper eating demo by Connor!

We had lots of help and the adults had fun too. Hope we can keep growing this event each year, the more the merrier!

April Rally was held jointly with Southeastern Bus Nuts

Nine units from our club joined with 11 rigs from the Bus Nuts for a fun April Rally. The Bus Nuts/Airstreamers cooked some great food and we loved seeing them and looking inside their rigs. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Fred, with Sarah looking quite sporty in her new short hair style. 

The decision was made to host the Carolinas  State Rally this year – so work is already underway in booking entertainment, catered meals, etc. Be looking now for good auction items to add to the silent auction. Let us know if you have ideas for good craft projects, decorations, local tours, etc. We want to make this State Rally extra special!

Please keep these members in your thoughts and prayers as they face challenges:

Sarah and Linda: continuing treatment for cancer and their spouses Fred and Dean

Martin: facing additional surgery on Friday , also remember  Ann

Dick and Luci

Marion and Edna

George: skin cancer surgery on his face means stitches and reduced talking (poor Martha!)

We miss you, please hurry back!

June Grandchildren’s Rally was “awesome”

The Grandkids Rally held June 8 thru 1o, 2012 was attended by 8 units with 7 grandkids. Attending were Connor, Drew, Emily, Hannah, Max, Rachel, and Sarah. The children enjoyed a variety of activities, including lots of crafts, a scavenger hunt, a “Minute to Win it” gameshow, making their own pizzas and fun trips to a nearby “swimming  hole.” The centerpieces for the dining tables were created by the kids and depicted the places they would most like to take their Airstream travel trailers,  places included  oceanside,  at the zoo, Mars and Nashville, TN.  Adults enjoyed watching the kids compete in a version of the gameshow “Minute to Win It” with such games as “Penny hose”, “Defying Gravity”, “Junk in your Trunk” and “Dizzy Mummy”.
