Hello from Region Six! It has been a very wait and see period of time for all. Lately life has been more like our childhoods. We are home for dinner every night, neighbors are talking and children are out in their yards. Puzzles and board games are the new form of entertainment. People are picking up a book with a cup of coffee while sitting on their front porch and watching the world go by. There is a feeling of community and family. In general, life has slowed down.
Planning your summer travels will be more challenging with social distancing this year. With the International Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming being canceled we are looking forward to the 2021 International Rally July 17 to 24 in Lewisburg, West Virginia! We encourage everyone to keep an eye on the calendar of events or contact the rally host to check the status of upcoming rallies. Several of our Region Six chapters are considering pop-up rallies if restrictions are lifted. We will be posting all dates and information for any pop-up rally on our Region Six Facebook page. We will also send out emails to members.
As of the writing of this article there are still several rallies on the calendar of events for this fall for our region. We will be monitoring the situation along with the rally hosts and making decisions as we get closer to those rally dates. We are working closely with the campgrounds and planned tour locations.
On an administrative note we want to apologize to Flash and Bev Miller (Ohio State Directors) and the Buckeye Kountry Travelers for the error in which their Ohio State Rally Ad was accidentally omitted from the April/May Konnection issue. We hope this did not cause any confusion to anyone looking for information on this rally. This rally has since been cancelled.
We want to wish all of our Newmar Family a very safe and healthy travel season.
Chuck & Michelle Steenwyk (20036)
Region Six Directors
