  • The Rainbelles made their debut at Star Thru The Golden Gate in San Francisco, 1986. A list of with club member/Belle name associations thru 2001 is reproduced below.
  • I know there have been additional Belles since then. The main coordinators have been Joe Petersen and Timmy Cole, but in recent years Michael Austin has played a role.
  • The second generation of the Rainbelle dresses were created for Peel The Apple. The third generation of dresses were created for Make Magic.
