Richard & Donna Ritchie (16254)
Illinois State Directors
As soon as we pull out our coats and gloves, we know it’s time to start packing the RV to head south. We’ll be there before Thanksgiving, so we can visit family on our way.
We’re already filling our calendars with graduations and weddings, next comes the rallies. Our State Rally will be held jointly with Iowa this year, and this time we’re going to be in Iowa. We decided to go to Clear Lake, Iowa, with the theme of Buddy Holly! Our dates are June 9-12. We often like to do rallies back-to-back so we can continue the party from campsite to campsite. The RV Park is Oakwood RV Park in Clear Lake, Iowa. Their email is Oakwoodrvparkllc@gmail.com and their phone number is 641-357-4019. They close for the winter, and they wouldn’t take reservations until February. So be sure to mark your calendars to call early. If you’re planning on attending, please register through the Kountry Klub Calendar, so we’ll have an estimated number of attendees. Thanks in advance.
Joe & Donna Delaney are having a combined chapter rally for Northern Illinois Kountry Kampers, and Illini Kountry Kuzzins June 4-8 in Keokuk, Iowa. They have many plans including visiting historic Nauvoo. More information is on the Kountry Klub Calendar, and the deadline is April 20.
Our Region Four Rally will be in Amanda, Iowa July 20-24 at the Amana RV Park and Event Center. It’s a great campground, but we haven’t been for years. More information will be available later.
We’re looking forward to the Newmar Luncheons in McAllen, Texas for all the Winter Texans. The first one is in December, and when we get an update, we’ll share that too.
Enjoy the holidays! Take care and stay healthy and happy. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-804-4274.
