Carl and Gayle Webber (20143)
The Carolinas (NC/SC) State Directors
Hey, y’all! ‘Tis the season … of giving thanks, of celebrating the birth of a Baby in a manger, of ringing in a new year. It’s the time of year when we look back over the previous year, sometimes with a giggle and sometimes with a tear, and often make resolutions for the year ahead. ‘Tis also the season of travel to a warmer climate for many of us Newmar owners. Since 2016 (when Gayle retired), us “Wandering Webbers” have taken the opportunity to spend 2-3 months in Florida, which gives us a chance to spend some quality time with Carl’s son (on the West coast) and cousins (on the East coast), while avoiding the coldest part of Winter in North Carolina. Speaking of giving thanks … we are blessed, y’all!
As we have done the last five years, Gayle and I will once again be attending the Florida RV SuperShow. We will arrive a week early to assist with the set-up of the Newmar demo coaches and NKK rally area. On arrival day (Tuesday, January 18), we will greet you in the “registration/staging area” before you are escorted to your campsite. A few reminders for attendees: #1) please read the information included in your registration packet. #2) you will enter the fairground property via Martin Luther King Blvd (Route 574). #3) arrive during your designated arrival timeslot (which is printed on your Parking Card). #4) be sure to have your Parking Card displayed on the passenger side of the windshield (high enough to be seen, please) upon arrival. #5) arrive with a FULL tank of fresh water and EMPTY holding tanks. #6) be prepared to have a GREAT time! 😊
Our Carolinas State Rally will be the perfect “welcome home” gathering as the aforementioned “snow birds” start to migrate back to the Carolinas (and some northern states). Scheduled for March 28-April 1 in Swansea, South Carolina, the weather should be ideal so members can acclimate to the cooler temperatures leisurely while enjoying some family time with their NKK family. As of this writing, the details are still in the works, but will be updated on the Klub Calendar in ample time to register and book your campsite (which must be done by mid-January). We hope to see you there!
Fun in the Carolinas will continue in April with the Tarheel Kountry Klub’s rally later in April (25– 29) in the North Carolina coastal town of New Bern. You can register and book your campsite now (and probably should, because it’s sure to sell out!) and the rally hosts, Ray & Kathy Dyer, will update the calendar listing as the specifics are finalized.
In South Carolina, rally hosts Jim & Carla Miller are also in the planning stages for their Palmetto Pals 2022 rally; again, keep checking that calendar for details. (Are you starting to see a pattern here? 😊)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, y’all. May the joy of the holiday season and the hope for the coming year fill each of you. As for us, we’re drinking from the saucer because our cup is overflowing!
