Sisters on the Fly host vintage camper tour
The public is invited to join Sisters on the Fly at Elk Creek Campground in Grand Lake on Saturday, Sept. 12 ,from 2-4 p.m. for a tour of their (mostly) vintage camper trailers.
Admittance is free but a suggested donation of $10 per person will be collected to benefit Casting for Recovery, a breast cancer support group using fly fishing to heal participants both mentally and physically.
Over 50 members of Sisters on the Fly will be attending the “R n R” Rockin the Rockies Grand Lake Style Meetup event in Grand Lake. Participants are coming from as far away as Oklahoma with many from Colorado and Wyoming. There will be 40 trailers.
Sisters on the Fly was founded in 1999 by two real-life sisters and has grown to 6,000 members in all 50 states and several foreign countries. There are about 300 members in the Rocky Mountain region. The organization has been featured in numerous national and local magazines as well as on television and radio.
“We love to show off our trailers, and many are hand painted and decorated by Sisters and restored from the ground up. Most trailers are from the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, and a few new ones as well, and they are really fun to tour,” according to Suzi Maki, sister #2572 and event organizer. “Our motto is ‘We have more fun than anyone’, and this event is a great example of fun. We encourage the public to join us for the trailer tour and support this important cause.”
Sisters on the Fly has supported Casting for Recovery with thousands of dollars raised through auctions, special events, and trailer tours. Casting for Recovery is a non-profit organization founded on the principles that the natural world is a healing force and that cancer survivors deserve one weekend — free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace — to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure.
Elk Creek Campground is located at 143 County Road 48, Grand Lake.
