BB Coachworks at Ft Valley Closed
For what it's worth, I was talking with a friend yesterday and he said that Kenny and Glenn are now back at Coachcraft again in Columbus. (those guys are like yos-yos). He says that now BB Coachworks has suspended everything at Ft Valley (basically closed it) and that any warranty work will now have to be done in CA. Apparently only 2-3 guys are left there to try to get rid of the parts inventory.

If anyone knows anything else, I would be interested.

FRom Brenda Rodgers " Dear Tom, Sandi, Maurice and Rozanne
Per a call I received this morning from Alan Barbee- it was announced by the General Manager at Coachworks at 5:30 today that Blue Bird Wanderlodge is oficially closed. I wanted to share this sad news with you. Thanks, Brenda"

Distressing news - I am schedued for service at Ft. Valley next week. Nobody has called me. I sure would like to know for sure before I go down.:(

Horrible news.

Hopefully, this is a temporary closure, and not permanent.

I was just working on plans for a springtime drive down to Florida, with a stop at the Nest.

I'm scheduled for some work in October before RATS. Maybe I should say I WAS scheduled?!?!

Let's just wait a while
It hasn't happened here on this forum yet, but before everybody jumps on the wagon and starts to predict the future, why don't we give Macy a chance to reply in his own time. I would rather hear the story from him rather than a lot of speculation about what may or may not be happening with Blue Bird. Starting a THE SKY IS FALLING prediction going on here, isn't going to help any, I think we all need to take a breath and step back a few paces and let Macy explain what is going on.

BB Closed
I spoke to Allen Barbee on Monday to schedule work in March and no word of anything being closed?

These guys have a yet to be filled contract with the Fed's for a bunch of buses I thought?

Thewonderer 01-31-2009 11:17 PM

I just left the factory yesterday, I made another appointment for March while I was there.
