We are very excited to begin our new adventure with Newmar as International Directors. With Linda making sure we stay on track, with all of the Regional Directors and Members-at-Large working on the team, with the continued efforts of our State and Chapter officers and with the enthusiastic support of our membership, it will be a very fun time!
Many of our Region Five folks know us well but maybe we need to share with all of you some facts about Bob & Bonnie Krieger. Sometime about 2001, we were at a music festival pulling a Newmar 5th wheel and were approached by some folks driving Newmar’s. Over root beer floats they asked, “Do you know about the Newmar Kountry Klub”? From that beginning we joined our local chapter, the Virginia Wheels, in 2001. Over those years, we served in just about every office in the local chapter, Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President and then President. We were then State Directors for Virginia and became Region Five Directors in 2009. We have held four or five regional rallies and even had one canceled at the last minute due to a hurricane on the North Carolina Outer Banks. Not to be outdone, we just rescheduled the North Carolina Outer Banks rally for the next October and had a wonderful time (we left just in time – two weeks later Hurricane Sandy hit the Outer Banks). We have hosted the Tampa RV Super Show Special Event for the last four years where we had the pleasure of meeting many of you. We have volunteered on the International parking teams twice, and several times on other functions such as parts, service, demo units, stage, and then there was the duty of “Breaker Bob” fixing electrical issues, etc.
We had so much fun and support at the Regional level we decided that the next step as International Director just had to greatly increase all that FUN, FOOD and FELLOWSHIP. We have been introduced to so many new and interesting places and friends in Region Fvie and at Internationals – We look forward to our new travels, friends, and adventures in these beautiful United States and Canada and Special Events around the world!
We are also grateful to have the Corporate support that we do – the synergistic effect of the NKK being closely involved with our dealers and Corporate is certainly good for our Klub, and our work as ambassadors for the Newmar product also has positive results for Newmar. Never miss the opportunity to thank our dealers and ask how we can support them. These are exciting times for Newmar and the Newmar Kountry Klub!
We all are so very blessed to be able to experience this wonderful lifestyle! Where ever we travel, let’s leave a positive “footprint” in that community that leaves them saying“ that Newmar group was fantastic – they were great people”.
Join us in the fun, get on the bus, and happy trails……safe travels!
