Florida Sea Turtles – President
The Holidays are over and we’re getting our final preparations for our summer travels. Many of our Sea Turtles get antsy to hit the road after a long winter; well Florida doesn’t really have a long winter. I guess you could call it a long fall.
Our fall rallies are done. Each rally was attended by over 20 coaches, and everyone had a great time. One of our excursions during the December Rally in Punta Gorda was a trip to Fort Myers to visit the Edison and Ford winter homes. Lots of downed trees and blue tarps around the area. As we crossed the Caloosahatchee River there were many boats which were washed up onto the shore. Looked like they were dry docked but weren’t supposed to be on land. Hurricane Ian caused lots of damage. Our prayers are out for all those affected.
Our Spring rallies were:
• February 16-19, rally was at a new campground Santa Fe Palms RV Resort in Gainesville, Florida hosted by Rolf & Ann Kuhns.
• March 16-19, rally was at another new RV Resort, Southern Springs RV Resort in Ocala, Florida hosted by Brian & Nancy Howard.
We are working on getting our fall rallies scheduled. If you know of a great location in Florida or if you want to become a host or co-host, notify John Pietri our Vice-President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year’s Newmar Owner’s Luncheons attendance were well received. Our February lunch had over 40 people. Great food and fellowship and always a great time. Next fall we will continue with the Newmar Owner’s Luncheon on the 2nd Wednesday of each month starting in December through March at the Golden Corral at 4705 US Hwy 98 N, Lakeland, FL 33809. Social and lunch is from 11:30 to 1:00. All Newmar owners are invited to attend.
