Greetings from Region Seven. Sure hope everyone is safe and healthy. Arrived home in RI the middle of May safe and sound. Did have to stop at the rest area on I- 95 N in RI after entering RI from CT. No problems. Just a quick stop and they waved us through. Pulled into the back yard around 10:30 pm and within minutes the slides were out and we went to sleep. It was a long day! The house could wait another day to be opened up after a long winter! After 14 days of stay in place we had the chance to see our kids and grand kids. What a strange feeling not being able to give everyone a big hug!!! But with masks, social distancing and a beautiful day to visit outdoors we all got to see one another after a long winter!
As RI and MA started to open up and entered into phase two we decided it was time to exercise the coach and go somewhere. So it was Cape Cod for a few days. The Cape was so quiet! The campground we stayed in had opened up and was about 50% occupied. Lots of rules to follow but very do able. Had to be self contained due to no rest rooms opened. No problem! The beaches were open but few visitors on the beaches we chose. Restaurants were open for take out only. Bob was a “Happy Camper”!!!! He got his fill of lobster! Boiled, baked or steamed it didn’t matter!!!!!!
So It looks like a quiet summer for our Region Seven rallies but a busy September could still happen. Time will tell!
Pennsylvania’s Penn’s Friends has a rally on the calendar for September 23-27 with plans to start up a new chapter in the western part of the state. PA is a big state east to west about 400-500 miles to travel for a rally. We need to get another chapter. It’s what our members are asking for. So lets make it happen. Our State Directors Wayne and Sue Burke have been such a positive force in PA. Let’s support their efforts. Hope to see many of you there!
- New York, as of this writing, is still a go for their rally in upstate NY July 9-12
- The New England Aires rally in September in CT is still planned to happen.
- The Hudson Aires and New England States Rally scheduled in September are CANCELLED due to Covid-19. Have any questions or concerns contact the hosts.
Please keep an eye on the COE for any rally changes or pop-up rallies
Take care and remember – Stay Smart = Healthy!
