Theme Woodstock....

Will be going off to a State Rally..... and this years theme for the rally is Woodstock, the theme will also be carried over to our National Rally in July. So for those not old enough to know about Woodstock I'll try and explain.
Woodstock was to be a Music and Art Fair that was conceived by 4 young entrepreneurs. Their plan was to offer rock's biggest names in music for a 3 day event. However it turned to be a nightmare for they didn't plan on the crowds that came so they had inadequate sanitation,, traffic back-ups, not enough food to feed the crowds and a cloud burst that turned the area into a mud bowl. Still nearly a half-million young people assembled peaceably.
Woodstock took place in 1969 and our Winnebago-Itasca Travelers club has been gathering since 1969 however in Forest City, Ia., so that is how this years theme came about. (Winnebago is calling it WITstock.)
