2017 Gathering in the Desert
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.
There were eleven seminars presented, four evening meals served and campfires every night but one. As in all Kountry Klub events if you don’t arrive early you are late. We had over three dozen rigs onsite one day early and at least a dozen coaches staying after the Gathering was officially over. We did have to tolerate some less than great weather a couple days and one day, heavy wind and rain that forced us to cancel the evening meal and campfire. Watch the calendar this fall. We will try to make the 2018 Gathering even better.
