Winter is a time of quiet and reflection. But have you looked at the Kountry Klub Calendar lately? There are 30 events listed from December through February. For the members of the Kountry Klub it looks like a time of Fun, Friendship, and travel. But then we would expect nothing else in the Klub. As we travel around the county and visit with you, we notice a few common themes. Newmar Owners are welcoming, fun, and up for an adventure. Our ‘Rigs,’ A’s, C’s, 5th’s and travel trailers are made to move, adventures are out there. If you can’t find an event or rally to attend, think about hosting one yourself. Contact your Chapter Officers, or State Directors and plan one. The more opportunities we have to meet the more fun we have.
Have you ever thought about hosting a rally, or special event? Maybe you have a great idea for a caravan, but don’t know how to go about planning or suggesting it. Hosting a rally is kind of like putting on a big party. Find a location, pick a date, plan some food, add some activities, and invite people. It can really be that simple. Don’t over think it. Ask around and find a member who has hosted in the past and ask for help or to be a co-host. Chapters are always looking for someone to step up and give it a try.
Same type of thing works for larger events like ‘Special Events’ and Caravans. If you have the desire to plan one or have a location that you think would be great, contact the Klub Office and let them know. This is your Klub, but we need your ideas and help in making things happen.
And since it’s never too early to plan…our International Rally will be in Sedalia, Missouri this fall. Now is the time to think about leading a seminar or teaching a craft. Are you good with the Insta Pot, or maybe you are great at convection ovens? Have you developed ideas for travel day meals? Can you teach a stretching class, or maybe the Two Step dance? Think of things you know and love and share them with the Klub. The more options we have the better the rally. Contact the Klub office to send you a seminar request or craft Instructor form.
We have planned our winter and are in the process of planning our spring and summer travels. We make our plans based on the Kountry Klub’s Calendar. If you are planning a rally that you have not yet put on the calendar please do so, so we can see if we can attend. Below are the rallies we are currently signed up for in the coming months. We have others that we will be signing up for soon.
