Quartzsite AZ Gathering

It's almost time go get ready for the trip to Quartzsite, AZ, and the BIG LadderBall Tournament.  It's only a few weeks away now.  All of our interested fiberglassers can start looking for partners for the double elimination tournament.  Can't find a partner? Not to worry, we'll tell you how to join.  In the next week or so, I will be posting the tournament rules.  Want to build a set to practice on?  You can Google "Team Dandy" for plans.  I also understand some prizes are forthcoming.  It's easy, and fun, to join in.  See you in Quartzsite.  - - Earl A.

Touring trailers

For those interested in touring different brands of molded fiberglass.....

Not only is there a "tour" time for all the different brands of trailers attending the Quartzsite Gathering, but also this year a dealer is bringing the new 2014 Trillium Sidekick to tour and Oliver has brought their 2014 models to tour.  The new Sidekick will be at Dome Rock at the gathering and the Olivers are set up in town.

Fantastic Quartzsite Gathering

The weather was beautiful, the people were fantastic and a great time was had by all.  Many thanks to the organizers George and Betty, and the Casita Forum folks for putting on this great event every year.

1st Prize -  Mike and Patti

2nd Prize - John and Lance

3rd Prize - Mike and Larry
