International Rally Report
Wow – another great rally in the history books! This year’s rally was held the first week of October in Sedalia, Missouri. We had a total of 457 units in attendance. Many of our attendees took advantage of four different pre-rally tours to surrounding areas of interest including Warm Springs Ranch and the Budweiser Clydesdales. We enjoyed great entertainment, five days of seminars (including extended chassis training classes held by Spartan, Freightliner offered their tow day Camp Freightliner classes, and Ford for the gas units), four craft classes creating unique items and jewelry, several catered meals, lots of popcorn, lemonade and an ice cream social.
This year we had an increased amount of vendors and Newmar suppliers in attendance as well as the full line of Newmar Kountry Klub Merchandise. We were greatly supported by Newmar as usual with Newmar Service Techs doing minor repairs as well as the Parts Dept. setting up a parts store. We also had the Newmar Executive Team on site ready to answer any questions our members may have had. Transwest was our dealer on site with twelve new units on display, including the all new New Aire. Unfortunately we did have some rain that “dampened” activities, but you were all troopers and we made the best of it. All in all the week flew by with many new friendships made and reconnections with those of the past.
We would like to take this time again to thank the directors and the hundreds of volunteers – without your help and support we would not have had such a great event.
