Hey y’all! It is Fall, so it must be RALLY TIME!

After enjoying a couple of “cozy” member lunches in August and five days around Washington DC in early September, Gayle and I were excited to join the Virginia Wheels and South Carolina Palmetto Pals for the Tri-State Mayberry Rally in Mt. Airy, NC. The rally was a ton of fun and the North Carolina mountains were cool and relaxing. Following the rally, 5-10 coaches (the numbers fluctuated) caravanned towards Sedalia MO … with stops in West Memphis AR and Branson MO … to attend the Newmar International Rally. Thanks to Roger and Peggy Weeks for coordinating that effort and guiding us safely to Sedalia.

Speaking of Sedalia and thanks – THANK YOU to Bob and Bonnie Krieger for all your planning and behind-the-scenes work, and to all of you wonderful Tarheels who volunteered and helped to make the Newmar International Rally another huge success. I am particularly thankful that Gayle and I love our Dutch Star, because helping to set-up the new 2018 coaches really heightened our awareness of the new features and luxuries being offered by Newmar and how much attention they pay to their customers’ suggestions. I don’t know about you, but when people ask what kind of motorhome we have, it gives me a sense of pride to tell them we own a Newmar.

Hey y’all! There must be some truth to the old saying, “Time flies when you’re having fun. ”Gayle and I have sure had a LOT of fun traveling through these beautiful United States–PLUS London, Ireland and Scotland, but it’s hard to believe we are already in the third quarter of the year. I believe that calls for a Newmar party!   We’ll start with a couple of Member Lunches in August. Mark your calendar and plan to gather for lunch with your fellow NC Tarheels at Julia’s Talley House Restaurant in Troutman on the 16th and/or at McCall’s BBQ & Seafood Restaurant in Clayton on the 22nd. Both get-togethers start at 11:30 AM and are “Dutch treat”. Please let us know which one(s) you plan to attend.

Hey y’all!  Since we are new in our respective officer roles and this is our first Konnection article, our Carolina’ s Directors suggested we take this opportunity to introduce ourselves.  

NC Tarheels President – Carl Webber After serving in the U.S. Airforce, Carl embarked on a 31-year career as a Police Officer, working primarily in Marshville and Wingate, NC. However, at the request of Marshville’ s Mayor, he took a nine-year sabbatical from that role to serve as Town Administrator, although he kept all law enforcement certifications current and continued to serve as a Reserve Officer during that period. Subsequently, he returned to full-time law enforcement, working for the Union County Sheriff’ s Office for three years before returning to Marshville as Chief of Police, the role he held when he retired in 2014.
