Yes, we have had some great media for the St. Malo rally, but it is hard to beat NATIONAL news (both TV and Radio). For other examples:

Steinbach Online and Steinbach 1250 AM radio have posted a nice article with a video interview and a longer radio interview (just look to the right column to play the audio interview with Jack Klick), taken during the St. Malo get-together last weekend. (same story and interviews also on PembinaValleyOnline.com - Local news, Weather, Sports, Free Classifieds and Business Listings for PembinaValley, Manitoba

rova,
I have to say that I appreciate both your research and posting style. Thanks for all the links.

I don't know if you noticed it but you've been here 2 years today. Happy Anniversary.

Not sure why I have not noticed you before, might have something to do with having made only 47 posts. That being said, please accept my belated welcome to FGRV.

I've enjoyed seeing the comments re. the St Malo Vintage rally. I stopped there over-night and had a short visit with Rick and his friends the Wed. bf the beginning of the rally. How I wished I'd had more time to stay for the rally!

I was on my way to BC to visit my son and grandson.

I did this same drive about 6 or 7 years ago, towing my 13' Trillium. It is still a long, dusty drive across the prairies now as it was then. But I loved seeing our great country day by day rolling passed my windows as I drove along.

One interesting observation I have to make......

When I made this drive 6 or 7 years ago I did not see any other molded fiberglass camper. This time I lost count! I saw 3 Scamp 5.0 before I left Mich. Of course one was at St. Malo along with Rick's Boler. Through Man., Sask. and Alberta, I was thrilled to see reconditioned Bolers rolling merrily down the Trans Canada along with a few 13' Trilliums. But I totally lost count of the campers when coming through the Rockies....Several of everything but notably a silver 13' Trillium, a royal blue Boler and turquoise Boler, an couple Escapes and an Outback.

I would say, these little campers are definitely popular!

Thanks Roy! Two years? Yup, that's how long our Boler was in the shop, too!

My next project is to add a few things to the history of the Boler that I wrote earlier, so this will be a slightly revised history of the Boler (version 2.0) which I'll be posting as soon I finish a couple of additions about Scamp and Trillium and getting those confirmed. I really relied a lot on Roy and others on this Forum for their posts about Boler history. Stay tuned.
