Chuck & Michelle Steenwyk (20036)
Region Six Directors
We have had such an exciting and full rally season in 2021; it’s hard to believe that it has come to an end. We have visited museums, glass factories, Victorian houses, bulk food stores, Amish homes, Amish restaurants, the Kountry Klub office, a lunatic asylum and the Soo Locks. We have traveled over mountains, through hill country, across flat lands and gone across the Mackinaw Bridge in good and BAD weather. We have had the opportunity to see the region on bikes with two different beautiful bike trails in two states. Some members even flew in a 1928 Ford Tri Motor plane! Our rally attendees were able to go on two boat excursions this season, one through the Soo Locks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the other took them to Put in Bay Island in Ohio. We were able to play games and have campfires, and eat LOTS of food. Our last rally of the season gave us the opportunity to visit Rabbit Hash, Kentucky where the Mayor is a dog!! We had members very graciously open their houses and lake cottages to our members during a rally to host a meal and social time.
THANK YOU to all the rally hosts this season for all your hard work and creativity for planning all of these great rallies and adventures! We have received several COE’s for the 2022 season already. 2022 looks like it is going to be an exciting rally season with many great rally events to choose from. Please check the Klub Calendar in the Legacy Magazine and the Kountry Klub website for details. Many of these rallies have open registration now and some open up for registration right after the 1st of January to reserve a spot at some of the rallies. Many of these campgrounds fill up fast, so be mindful of the dates and instructions for registering for these rallies!
Our region grew during 2021. Every chapter gained new members, and the state of Ohio even had a second chapter form in their state. The Lake Erie Drifters were chartered at the International Rally in Lewisburg, West Virginia! They even held two rallies in 2021 after the International Rally.
On the other side of the spectrum we are sorry to hear that John & Judy Van Loo (601-L) have decided to move on to a different chapter of their lives. We just want to recognize them for 32 years of Newmar Kountry Klub Membership. THANK YOU for all the rallies you have hosted, units you have parked and registered at several International rallies, chapter offices you have held and all the wisdom and mentorship you have given to us all! We wish you the very best in this next chapter of your lives!
We want to CONGRATULATE the Hoosier Kountry Klub (charter #2) the Michigan Aire Kampers (charter #5) and the Buckeye Kountry Travelers (charter #4) who celebrated their chapter’s 35th anniversary this year! Each chapter had a celebration during the rally season and gave an anniversary gift to its members.
Our Region Six Rally will be held May 18-22. The rally will be held at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds located in Berea, Ohio. Rally details are in the works.
We want to wish all of our Newmar Family & Friends a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! We look forward to seeing you at a rally in the near future.
