Prior to 1995 we don’t know if there was a theme for the annual Western Regional Rally, the 1995 theme was California Country:

Notes from Jan Watson:

I have attached some of the earlier rallies that Amigos did that I don’t have a CD for.  First ever Amigos decorations was the California Country in 95.  The scene changed every day and the cow and the bull wound up in the same pen, he-ing & she-ing and so did Ma & Pa.  1996 was the Water Fantasy, created by Mac Price.  The pond held 2000 gallons of water coming from a stream painted on the backdrop.  A mama bear and her cubs were feeding on salmon coming out of the stream and a family was camped nearby.  Don’t think all of that is visible in the photo.

I can’t find any pictures of Tropical Adventures (1999) but it was a lot of very real looking palm trees, big tropical birds and a Hawaiian theme.  The other one I can’t find any pictures for is 2001, which was “Mardi Gras, CA Style”.  I know I have pictures, just not sure what box they are in and don’t know if either of us will live long enough for me to find them.

The Days of Wine & Roses [2002] was very pretty and we made  flowers out of coffee filters that we painted with water colors.  Center stage you can see a huge wine bottle pouring into a LARGE glass and it ran continuously and the entertainers joked about it making them want to pee.  The bottle and glass is still sitting on the back porch of the old house.
