Alabama Dixie Aires – President
Autumn is our favorite season of the year, and we were able to spend some time in Sevierville, Tennessee last month where we were actually able to experience this season. The changing of the colors of the leaves and their colors are so beautiful and vibrant. The days were warm, and the evenings had a little bit of a chill in the air, which felt really good. It being peak season there was a lot of traffic and a lot of people everywhere, but we considered it well worth it to be able to be in Sevierville during this time.
While in Sevierville, I had the chance to take some pickle ball lessons and I really enjoyed it. The sport of pickle ball has really taken off and a lot of people are playing it. You will find a lot of resorts that have pickle ball courts. Some resorts offer indoor pickle ball. Paddles and balls are all you need to play this sport and they take up very little room in your coach. It is also a great way to get some exercise while you are on the road. If there are not any pickle ball courts where you are staying, check to see if the city parks in the area have pickle ball courts.
As this is written, we are getting ready to attend the Region Five Rally in Savannah, Georgia. This will be our first Region Five Rally since COVID, and we are happy to be going. Savannah is a nice place to visit with a lot of tourist sites to visit and a lot of good restaurants to eat at.
The Alabama Dixie Aires are getting ready to have their first rally since the chapter was brought back together earlier this year. Plans are already in the making for next year’s rally. Once rally information is available it will be posted on the Newmar Kountry Klub website so you can register.
We welcome the following new members to the Alabama Dixie Aires: Jerry & Shirley Roberts, Edgar & Beverly Shaw, Mike & Connie Spiller, Joseph & Jewel Symmes and Robert & Sara Trachsler.
If you live in Alabama or Mississippi and would like to meet fellow Newmar owners that live in your home state, come, and join the Alabama Dixie Aires. Attending a chapter rally is an ideal way to meet people who enjoy doing the same thing you do. It is also a good way to learn from others about your motorhome. There is always good food to eat, interesting sites in the area to see and plenty of fun and fellowship. To find out more about the Alabama Dixie Aires, please contact us.
