Tom & Gloria Rezentes (21867)
Virginia Wheels – Presidents
The Virginia Wheels hosted our first rally for 2022 at Williamsburg, Virginia, and we had a blast! We had 21 motorhomes and one guest couple in their travel trailer. I believe they are on their way to becoming future Newmar owners!
We had seven new or first-timers attend our rally. It was great to see the enthusiasm and fun everyone was having during the four days. The Newmar Roundtable was a big hit, and I would like to especially thank Geoff Baker from the Manatees for sharing his knowledge and recommending products and tools we all need to be using in maintaining our motorhomes. Special thank you to Margee Mangus for suggesting this forum, and I think we will put that on our agenda again.
Speaking of special thanks, I need to recognize Tommy & Becky Rygiel, Nick & Margee Mangus, and Mike & Tipper Bradford for being part of our rally committee and helping to ensure this was a success. Also, a big thank you to John & Carol Weber for your help during the rally.
We danced around showers and rain, and I was concerned that our walking tour of Colonial Williamsburg would be rained out, but that did not happen. We had guided tours of several buildings including the Governor’s palace, different trades that take place in Colonial Williamsburg and learned of the history and preservation.
Our ice cream socials were big hits with our members, along with our excellent meals, both catered and at the Golden Corral Restaurant right after the walking tour. Thanks to our State Director Mike Vreeland for calling Card Bingo. Congratulations to our winners as we all enjoyed the evening.
Our first annual Corn Hole Tournament took place, and we fielded ten teams all looking to take home the bragging rights. Tommy Rygiel and John Weber won that right and we are all looking forward to the challenge next year. Guess I better start practicing if I want to win! Congratulations to Tommy and John!
Gloria & I are off to Alaska and will miss the Virginia State Rally and International Rally. We hope many of our Virginia Wheels friends and family enjoy themselves at these two rallies, and we look forward to hearing about them when we get back.
We look forward to seeing you on the road. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org Cell Phone 804-892-7727.
