Chuck & Lynda Gumeson (22459)
Colorado Kruisin Aires – Presidents
What a great time we had at the International in Rock Springs! The Sweetwater Events Center turned out to be a great venue, and all of us with dogs certainly enjoyed the many grassy areas to hang out with our furry friends (and their owners, of course). The many terrific volunteers made an especially wonderful experience for all! And a huge thank you to Linda and DeAnn, from the Newmar Kountry Klub office, for their many hours of hard work. It just could not have been any better.
The Colorado Kruisin Aires had their annual rally in mid-June in Fort Collins, Colorado, and we all gathered together in a very great facility. A few of our members braved a whitewater rafting experience, and most of our members attended the tour of the Morning Fresh Dairy. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather, and everyone got to enjoy lots of outdoor time. One of the evenings, we were fortunate to have Bill Haberkorn from Transwest in Frederick, Colorado and his assistant AC join us for an interactive Q & A session. We could have kept them around for hours as we all got to figure out more details about the operation of our coaches. It was so informative.
We have increased our membership up to 48 coaches now! We always have room for more to join. This is just the best group of folks anywhere! Welcome to all of our new members, and thank you to Nancy Witthuhn, who will take over as our Treasurer, and to Kathy Danhour who will take over as our Secretary. Of course, a huge thank you is in order to Kathy Bohmeyer who has faithfully been the Treasurer for seven years and has earned the right to pass this job along. We can always use more volunteers so step up and we will find a job for you to do!
Prior to attending the International, Chuck & I were lucky enough to spend two weeks in Yellowstone just after the flood, at the newly renovated Fishing Bridge RV Park. The National Park Service has done an awesome job with improving that campground.
Currently, we are spending a few weeks in northern Michigan before we head down to the Newmar Service Center in Nappanee to have our annual maintenance completed. Then we are off to Colorado in time for the Colorado State Rally which will be held in Colorado Springs in mid-September.
We have a few more trips planned in our Magic Bus before we park the coach for winter. So, we will see you all down the road.
We are working on putting together a luncheon in mid-November, somewhere along the front range again, and most likely in Castle Rock, Colorado. We are also trying to work on our rally location for next June. So far, most of the votes are for going to Durango. After the first of the year, watch for information on this. If you join our chapter, you’ll be the first to hear about it!
Please reach out to us at any time, even if it is just to say “hi”! We welcome your input, comments, and ideas! We can be reached at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
