October brings the sights and smells of pumpkins, spices, cooler weather and for some even the beginning of winterizing their beloved Newmar. For others it is a looking towards warmer weather in the south, both east and west. No matter where you might travel, or park, we hope you take a few minutes and read this magazine. Each and every chapter, state, and region have information to share, whether reporting on past events or future events.
For us, this past year has been exciting, as we were able to attend more rallies than in the past few years. The country is getting back to a new normal and more are traveling and attending at rallies. We are seeing new members at each rally. It’s exciting to be a part of this Klub.
This is the report we gave during the International Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming, in July.
For period July 15, 2021 through July 22, 2022 – We have traveled a total of 13,790 miles. We attended: 1 breakfast, lunches, 2 Region Rallies, 8 State or Provincial Rallies, 3 Chapter Rallies, 1 International Rally (West Virginia), 1 NKK Special Event Rally (Quartzite). For a total of 16 rallies or events plus the Regional Directors Meeting. We attended rallies in 5 of the 9 regions. Those rallies have been in 11 states
We spoke to approximately 838 members. This does not include International attendees. Nor does it take into account that some of these members we met at more than one event. We provided the Board of Directors a list of twenty topics so far and have more to provide them before the upcoming meeting.
There are still two more Region Rallies on our schedule for this year, as well as our annual Board Meeting scheduled for early October in Nappanee, Indiana. Then we begin 2023 at the Tampa Super Show Rally. We will do our best to post the rallies we have scheduled to attend ahead of time. If you want us to attend a specific rally, please let us know as soon as you know the dates and location, so we can look at our calendar to fit it in. We want to meet and talk to as many of you as we can throughout the year. This is your Klub, and we want your ideas and suggestions to make this the best Klub to belong to.
We would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to those members who took the time to take up the QOVF Quilt Block Challenge. We received 189 completed blocks. This is enough to make 4 1/2 quilts to be awarded to deserving Veteran’s. We had 17 people who donated. Kim Anderson, Chris Barsh, Charlene Budd, Kathy Davis, Fay & Steve Day, Melissa Hale, Debbie Hughes, Kathy Linn, Danya MacDonald, Michelle Moore, Pat Robshaw, Karen Terry, Terry Trammell, Nancy Wills, Joanne Wyble, and Gayle Young. Every single block will be a piece of something special.
At this time, we plan to participate in the QOVF Block Challenge in 2023. The new block pattern will be released in January sometime. We will make sure to publish the information once it is announced.
We wish you all a wonder filled Autumn.
