Time to “Saddle up” for Sedalia

on Friday, 17 March 2017. Posted in Klub News

2017 International Rally

This is the first in a series of “news flashes” that will occur on the website, in the Konnection, and in the “Happenings” as we develop the programs, entertainment, and seminars and other events for the Sedalia International Rally.

Sedalia is a small town of about 21,000 people located about 2.5 hours North of Branson and about 1.5 hours southeast of Kansas City. It is the site of the Missouri State Fair and the hometown of Ragtime piano player Scott Joplin.

We will have a total of about 1,200 sites; 246 each are 50 amp full hookup and the rest 30 amp full hookup. Temperatures the first week in October should be moderate so 30 amp should be fine for most cases.  We are parking all of the volunteers and regional directors in 30 amp full hookup so that the 246 each 50 amp full hookups will be available to our other members.

2017 Gathering in the Desert

on Wednesday, 01 March 2017. Posted in Klub News

The “Gathering in the Desert” in Quartzsite, Arizona this January was a great success with attendance at around ninety coaches. This was a healthy increase from last year. Included in attendance this year were Bonnie & Bob Krieger our Kountry Klub International Directors.

Prior to the rally this year we spent more time doing more formal planning delegation and it paid off very well with volunteer crews assigned to handle parking, first-timers, seminars, trash & water, campfires and pictures. Of course we also had signup sheets for help with the meals. We hope this made everyone’s experience a good one including those who volunteered! It sure made the event run more smoothly we think. We have said that this Gathering cannot happen without all the wonderful volunteer help we get from the attendees.

2017 Tampa Supershow Highlights

on Wednesday, 01 March 2017. Posted in Klub News

Over the years, I have stated that you can tell it is Super Show time because of the weather. It is always cold, windy, and rainy. Not this time. With the temperatures in the eighties almost every day and no rain, the show exceeded all attendance records. The report is that over 70,000 people attended. It would have been interesting to see what the numbers would have been had the cold front with high winds not come in early on Sunday, keeping the attendance down for that day. Before opening on Wednesday, traffic was backed up on Martin Luther King Blvd. and stayed that way until after 2 PM. The US 301 Gate closed due to no parking space.

As for the Newmar Rally, held in conjunction with the show, we had 180 coaches registered. Luckily, our group came in on Tuesday with minimal traffic and parking went well with our own Newmar parking team!

For the first time, we had a fellowship time with finger foods under the tent on Wednesday afternoon. Over 75 attended and as usual the food was great. Several Chapters enjoyed the use of the tent for Klub socials. Of course, we had coffee and donuts each morning in the tent also.

Grand Circle Caravan

Silverton-Durango-Train Grand-Central-Caravan-250

We started our adventure with a get acquainted get together at the Pueblo Colorado Fairgrounds on September 30. On October 1 we headed out for our first stop in Salt Fork Colorado just a few miles short of Wolf Creek Pass. The scenery was already beautiful on this short drive. The next day we moved on to Ancient Cedars RV Resort, directly across from Mesa Verde. We looked out of our units to see Grand Mesa Ridge. Our tour guide at Mesa Verde was a retired school principal and was extremely knowledgeable. Due to restoration projects on Cliff Palace we had a substitution of Sun Balcony for our cliff dwellings exploration. This was more strenuous than Cliff Palace would have been. We were told that in order to enter we would climb a tall ladder and to exit we would have to crawl through a hole in the rock that was about 18” wide and about 30” high and about 3’ long and then climb another tall ladder. The NPS guide was a rather large man and some of us said if he can get through it so can we. About half of the group backed out and went to visit the museum while the rest of us trudged on. I must say it was very interesting and amazing to see how people lived on the side of a cliff. The exit hole did present a few problems but we all made it out. The next day we took a tour bus to Silverton CO. The mountains were full of golden Aspen and beautiful mountain streams. We scattered for lunch in Silverton and then boarded the train for the return to Durango. We had two cars reserved on the train. One was all glass, The Night Sky, so you could see out and up, the other car had tables, The Alamosa, that groups of two or four could sit at. We were going to trade seats about half way but the group in the Alamosa were having so much fun they wanted to stay. They said The Night Sky was Duds Ville. It was very quiet in The Night Sky and very loud in The Alamosa. The next day was a free day and people went in all directions. Some went hiking and biking and some went to visit towns in the area. Everyone was saying how beautiful it was and how this was God’s country.
