Region Five Directors
Region Five Rally 2022 was very successful despite all the obstacles leading up to the event. Thanks to the help of our State Directors and many members who stepped up to help. We cannot thank them enough.
We began with our traditional BBQ dinner sponsored by Campers Inn. Bob Amato represented Campers Inn at dinner and breakfast. We had two beautiful 2023 Newmar coaches on display.
Following dinner was the drawing for door prizes. Everyone received a prize from a $25.00 gift card up to a Blackstone Tailgater, with many nice gifts in between. All thanks to sponsors from Independence RV, National Indoor RV, Retorband, and MagnaShade.
Monday night was a Low County Boil provided by ShellHouse Seafood Restaurant, and sponsored by North Trail RV.
Tuesday morning, we were treated to a hot breakfast sponsored by SkyMed.
Wednesday evening at 6 PM we boarded the Savannah Riverboat for a three-hour cruise up and down the Savannah River. Not only was the buffet meal featuring Prime Rib and Shrimp and Grits excellent, but the views and our guitarist provided great music that led many to the dance floor.
Thursday morning, we toured the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force. What a history lesson. After the tour we enjoyed a Southern Buffet lunch. Folks we owe so much gratitude to the men and women who sacrificed so much for the freedoms we have today. If you are ever near Pooler, Georgia, I urge you to stop and see this great memorial.
Two more things, our Ice Cream Social sponsored by FCIS was enjoyed by all and there was an unexpected visit by Ilean.
In closing, mark your calendar for the 2023 Region Rally in the North Carolina Outer Banks starting on October 13th.
