Todd Knieriemen (25607)
Lake Erie Drifters – President
We are excited to have three of the four new officers for our Lake Erie Drifters, President, Todd Knieriemen; Vice President, Becky Laird; Secretary, Jane Cozad; and returning as Treasurer is Phyllis Rose. We are looking forward to an amazing 2023 camping season. There are currently two rallies already planned for this season, but we are working on probably two more. If any of our members have ideas for rallies they would like to suggest, or perhaps even host, please let us know. The more ideas and participation we have, the more fun we all will have.
Currently planned is a rally at Camp Perry Campground in Port Clinton, Ohio. There is a beautiful campground there that is easily accessible and close to many activities. Look for this to appear on the Newmar Kountry Klub Calendar after it has been approved. If you are interested in this rally, please call the campground and reserve your site as soon as possible as they will not “hold” campsites for us but will locate us close together if you let them know you are with the Newmar group.
There is also a Tri-State rally that has long been planned with the Michigan Great Lakers, Michigan Aire Kampers, Indiana Hoosier Kountry Klub, Ohio Buckeye Kountry Travelers, & Ohio Lake Erie Drifters. The Tri-State Chapter is Rally May 25-May 30 at Shipshewana Campground South Park. This rally is still open for reservations. Please see all the details on the Newmar Kountry Klub Calendar.
We are working very hard to get our campers ready for the season. One member told us we will spend twice as many hours readying our camper as we do camping in it. I think he may have been correct, but it is a labor of love as you all know.
We would like to thank the Indiana Hoosiers for the amazing joint rally they hosted at Sauder Village Campground in 2022. It was an amazing rally, and we truly appreciate the hard work and planning that went into it. It was so much fun, our Secretary, Jane, suggested that we should do another rally there. We couldn’t agree more. Keep watch for more rally information on the Newmar Kountry Klub Calendar.
