Hello from Region 6!! Summer is in full swing as far as the calendar is concerned. The weather is cooperating so far, and the farmers have been able to get their crops in up here. Socially though, summer is still in a wait and see pattern here in Michigan.
We were very lucky and we were able to sneak away in June to Shipshewana, Indiana for a pop-up rally. It was GREAT seeing our Newmar family for the few days that we were there. We had 11 units there from four different states!! We ate at the Das Essen Haus restaurant located in Middleberry, IN for one of our meals. We were allowed 6 people per table, and ate family style. The food was very good and it was really nice to actually sit in a restaurant and eat with friends. We also had a socially distanced potluck and socially distanced campfires at night. All the precautions that we put into practice worked very well and everyone in attendance had a good time.
There are still Newmar rallies scheduled for our region in August, September, and October. Remember to keep an eye on the calendar of events, the Region Six facebook page, and your email for schedule changes, pop-up rally information, or possible cancellations. As always, if you have any questions please reach out to us or any of our state directors in the region.
Looking forward to the 2021 Newmar rally season we would encourage you to consider hosting or co-hosting a rally. We encourage you to contact your chapter presidents with any questions you may have about hosting, and for available rally dates in 2021 for your chapters schedule.This is a good time of year to contact campgrounds and reserve your sites for the 2021 season! Region Six, along with Region One, will be taking care of parking and registration at the International Rally in Lewisburg, West Virginia (July 17 to 24). We will be looking for volunteers, if you are interested in helping please let us know. Volunteering is a great way to get involved and you will meet and make many new friends!
We want to send out a huge thank you to all our State Directors, chapter officers, and chapter members for staying in contact with us and each other. You are all doing a great job of keeping your state and chapters informed of all the changes that keep taking place within your states! We could not do this without help from all of you! Thank You!
We look forward to seeing all of you as soon as possible. Safe travels to all!
