Looks like a great group to hang with. One of these days, I'll get mine on the road and join you all somewhere.

Thank you for posting the pictures from our great day at your place. We had a great time and all the club members really enjoyed themselves. Everyone in Billings were really welcoming of the Chevrolet Nomad Association. Thank you for hosting our Club. Dale Gosnell, Midwest Region Director

Thanks for the pictures.
I bet you blew some peoples minds
with all those Nomads parked in one place.
I would have locked 'em up if I ever saw that.

I see at least 2 non-Nomads. Is an actual Nomad not necessary for membership?

He who dies with the most toys doesn't necessarily win, but had more fun getting to the finish line.

You do not need to own a Nomad to be a member.

The two non Nomads were friends of mine that helped me do the cooking for everyone. Could not have done it without them.
