Airstream enthusiasts rally in Benton County

VINTON- The Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI), an association of Airstream owners, held a rally at the Benton County Fairgrounds May 15“18, 2008.

Chuck and Nancy Helle, Vinton, hosted the event. Rallies are held four times between May and October each year. The annual international rally will be in Bozeman, MT in June.
The last rally hosted by Vinton was probably 20 years ago, stated Nancy Helle. There were about 14 Airstream trailers present at the rally.

The attendees were treated to tours of the Braille School, courthouse, Ray House, Horridge House, and the new Vinton-Shellsburg High School. They also viewed the wall murals in downtown Vinton.
The rally agenda also included a board meeting, business meeting, potlucks, and card bingo.
The WBCCI, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1955 in Nova Scotia by Wally Byam, a lawyer who never practiced law, but instead became a publisher and entrepeneur. Read more Airstream....
