Celebrate the history of our club by visiting the first Airstreams.  Each one has a “story,” which the owners love to share.  The VAC parking area is at the top of the hill, near the large white tent.  Remember, everyone is welcome to attend the VAC Happy Hour at 5 p.m. each day in the VAC tent.

Learn about great, and not so great, apps for travelers at 1 p.m. in the Cafeteria – “Smart Apps for Smart Travelers” Presentation and Sharing Session 

You will kick yourself tomorrow if you miss tonight’s entertainment: Bob Stansbury & Friends.   He’s wonderful, and he’s ours.

Today’s Tech Tip:  Know your Passwords?

Passwords are our first line of defense in our online world and most people think theirs are as strong as Fort Knox. Sadly, “fool-proof” passwords don’t usually translate into “hack-proof” ones. (Click here for more . . . )

ATTENTION:  Vendor BLUE OX will not be attending the rally.  Members who were expecting to pick up product are asked to contact their Blue Ox Representative.

The Ladies Tea and Retro Fashion Show was a hit.  It was amazing what came out of some closets, and what still fit!

Today the VAC really kicked it up a notch with their 5 o’clock Happy Hour in the VAC tent.
