Greetings from Northern California. It’s been a while since we have been able to see each other in person. The vaccines are here and it sounds like by early to late spring everyone that wants a vaccine will get one!
The Golden Bears 2021 Rally should be a go! The dates are: checking in Monday the 27th of September, checking out Friday, October 1st. It’s a 4-night 5-day rally. It will be held at the Jackson Rancheria Casino RV Park, 12224 New York Ranch Rd, Jackson, CA 95642. The Rally fee is $395 for two people, $290 for one person and includes four nights camping, two nights (Monday & Thursday) catered dinners, three hot breakfast and one continental breakfast. Again, this year Super Chef and owner of Busy Banquets, Tiffany Schneider, will be supplying some great food for us! Wednesday night, pot luck dinner, this meal will include Penny Nuttall cooking up some prime rib for everyone along with appetizers from one of our favorite sponsor’s, Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, supplying again some of the best in the world Sushi and Japanese food. We will also have salmon for those who do not eat beef. Coordination for who’s bringing what side dish, appetizer, or dessert, will be handled by Sandi and Kathy as we get closer to the rally. Tuesday night we will go to the casino buffet as a group, for now this meal will be on your own dollar $19.95 per person. Another one of our favorite sponsors are back again this year Panera Bread! They will be suppling our continental breakfast on Friday. Thursday night wear your dancing shoes, live music provided by the KMC band. I have seen this band several times at the VFW hall and they rock the house. They have an extensive song list of well-known Country and Classic rock songs; I will send the list out to everyone that registers in advance. You markup your request sheet and the band plays your favorite songs. If you have one you love to sing, get up and sing it while the band backs you up!
An added part of this special rally will be raising money to donate equally to The American Cancer Society and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Each Coach will bring a raffle prize of $30-$40 value to be raffled off, 100% of those funds and any money collected above the cost of the rally will be donated.
Again, by popular demand, our very own Tom & Teri Chelbana will be doing another “Everything You Wanted to Know about Traveling in your Newmar but were Afraid to ask” seminar!
As I am writing this our special 20-year plus 1 Celebration Rally is still SOLD OUT. A big thanks goes out to all that have already let me know they are still coming! We have a wait list for cancelations. Thanks to those that have signed up on our wait list. The wait list is long enough to not accept any more to the list at this time.
Make checks out to Lee Burkhouse/Golden Bears and mailed to Lee Burkhouse, 101 Rocky Cove Court, Folsom, CA 95630 after January 1.
The Golden Bears are looking for someone to step up and lead our group in the future. If you are thinking it might be for you, please let me know. I can fill you in on what’s required. Sandi & I figured we would give it a try for a couple of years/rallies, this will be our 3rd year as presidents and other than COVID-19 showing up it has been great, and fun to do.
We can be reached at email email@example.com or cell 916-799-2986.
