Due to COVID-19 most of the 2020 Special Events had to be cancelled for the health and safety of our members and event leaders as well as the travel restrictions that were put into place. These events are being rescheduled in either 2021 or 2022. They are being first offered to the members that were registered when we cancelled the events. Any open sites will then be offered to our general members on the designated opening dates. Below is information on the events and dates when reservations will open thru our website newmarkountryklub.com under the menu option of Klub Calendar.
The first of the events cancelled was the Spring in the Texas Hill Country and San Antonio Event. This will now be held from April 1-10, 2021 and our leaders will be Jerry & Sue Argabrite. This event will be opening for reservations on Monday, October 5th, at 10:00am through our website.
Enjoy three days in Fredericksburg, Texas with planned visits to the LBJ National Historic Park, Lukenbach, WWII Pacific Museum, as well as the abundance of the springtime Texas wild flowers. After exploring Fredericksburg, we will have a short move to San Antonio to experience The Alamo, San Antonio Botanical Gardens, Riverwalk, San Antonio Shoe Company, a river cruise, Buckhorn Saloon and Museum, the Texas Ranger Museum, early Spanish missions and more, with time to explore the area on your own. Experience the flavors of Texas, from authentic German food in Fredericksburg, Tex-Mex and Mexican cuisine, or just good ole Texas barbeque. Transportation most days will be via car-pool, so tow vehicles are encouraged. Your fee includes 9 nights full hook-up camping, 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 3 dinners, and admission to the attractions listed on the itinerary.
Next up will be the rescheduled Lewis & Clark Caravan being held from July 28-September 14. We anticipate this opening for reservations on Monday, December 7th. Caravan leaders will be Jeff & Kaynell Zeman. This schedule allows for 5 travel days from the International Rally location of Lewisburg, West Virginia to St Charles, Missouri the beginning point of this adventure.
Our Caravan will follow the route of the 1804 – 06 journey of the “Corps of Discovery”, up the Missouri River to its headwaters in western Montana, across the rugged Bitterroot Mountains, and thence down the Columbia River to the Pacific. Our journey will cover just short of 3,000 miles, 17 RV Parks, and have no one-night stays planned.
While the theme of the caravan is the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition, we are planning some great modern adventures along the way. Including two riverboat cruises, a few bus and trolley tours, a jet boat trip up Hells Canyon, as well as many meals. There will be time for exploring on your own, including a National Battlefield, National Parks, the Garden of 1000 Buddhas, and the National Bison Range, various hiking trails, some great golf and swimming opportunities, and the fantastic Route of the Hiawatha bicycle Rails-to-Trail (imagine 17 miles all downhill through tunnels and across trestles, with a bus ride back to the top!).
The rescheduled Christmas in Branson Rally will be November 7-14, 2021. This will be led by experienced hosts Jerry & Sue Argabrite. Reservations opening in June 2021. More details on this event coming later this year.
Dates Yet to be Determined
The Grand Circle Caravan is in the very early stages of rescheduling. Caravan leaders will once again be Jerry & Phyllis Rose. We are looking at a four week caravan in late September 2021. As this is further along in planning we will announce more information and an anticipated reservation opening date in early 2021.
At this time it looks like the Calgary Stampede will be rescheduled in 2022. The final determination of rescheduling the Black Hills event in either 2021 or 2022 has not been made at this time. We will keep you updated as these events are firmed up.
