I saw a sign the other day that said, “Move Beyond Your Expectations.” It reminded me of a recent visit to a local restaurant which I have not frequented for a very long time. I knew the place had great food. I was excited that I was able to take the time to have another meal here and my taste buds were just waiting for the time until they were able to enjoy some of the fine foods this establishment offered. But alas when we arrived it was found things were not the same as they once were but more to the point the food was nowhere near my expectations. It was disappointing to say the least, but we did not let that disappointment spoil the chance for a good lunch and in the end the new owners made two very happy customers that day and customers who will return another day to once again enjoy the delightful items they serve.
Mark your calendar for September 30-October 7, 2023, for the 37th Annual International Rally. Next year’s event will be held in the spectacular location of the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri. More info will be in the Legacy magazine in the coming issues.
We are reaching out to you for suggestions for the 2023 Region Nine Rally. Locations suggested so far include the Black Diamond Ranch in Merritt, British Columbia or the Tunnel Mountain RV Park in Banff, Alberta. If you get a chance, take a look at the Region Nine Facebook page and vote for your choice or make a suggestion of where you would like to see a rally held.
Newgle Nugget and Service Articles. Watch the Legacy magazine either online or your paper copy for articles of information on Newmar RV’s. These articles are very informative and very interesting.
Did you happen to catch the recipe in the August/September edition of the Legacy which was for Cheesecake. Kathy Morren (24439) sent the recipe in, and we thank her for the contribution. That cheesecake was awesome.
By the time you read this, we hope to have a new survey up on Facebook/Region Nine to help us better identify things of interest soon. I hope you get a chance to look and fill out the survey.
Eastern Canada was once again part of our 2022 travel plans. Joanne & I hosted the Klub’s 43-day Eastern Canada caravan. Although not as well attended as we had hoped for, it was fun nonetheless. Members were treated to lots of lobster and seafood meals as well as sightings of whales, moose, icebergs and puffins. Joanne & I had seen 15 moose on the famous moose alley evening drive. The caravan was not immune to the dreaded COVID, but of the few that got it they recovered quickly.
Rock Springs in Wyoming provided a great location for the International Rally with some interesting areas to discover in and around the area. It seems pretty evident by the great hospitality the locals showed us that the Klub will visit this area again. The Klub store was once again the responsibility of Region Nine and big THANK YOU goes out to John & Kathy Schretlen who helped us with the store this year. After the rally the clothing that is left over goes back to the Klub office and is now shown on their new online store. Check the Klub website to see the lineup of great quality made Klub merchandise. The Canadian gathering was well attended where we enjoyed pizza hosted by John & JoAnn McDougall (25654) from Langley, British Columbia.
It was decided at the Region Directors Meeting to have the logos that are used in Facebook changed to colour. Above is what all the region’s logos look like, but in their respective colour. This is a great change from the past black and white logos. Each region will have a specific colour which matches the colours shown on “search by regions” web page on the Klub’s website.
Thanksgiving was observed periodically by Canadians in the 17th and 18th centuries and with more regularity in the 19th century. The day was finally formalized as a national holiday in 1879. The actual day of celebration has moved around several times throughout history, but today the date recognized now is the 2nd Monday of the month. In 2022 this is October 10th. It’s a time to gather with family and friends for a festive meal.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO OUR NEWMAR FAMILY
We meet, We part, We hope to meet again….
