Our Kansas State Rally was held at Lighthouse Landing RV Park, South Hutchinson, Kansas, on July 18th to 21st. We had eight rigs attend our rally on a very hot week. There were also two rigs who planned to attend but were forced to cancel. The RV Park had a well-equipped and cool meeting room where we held most of our activities including our bean bag tournament. We also went to the Kansas Cosmosphere, where we viewed the IMAX film “Apollo 11”. Missouri NKK members Kay and Allen Oshel brought us up-to-date on SkyMed and also provided our evening ice-cream. Sherry and I want to thank all who were able to attend, with a special thanks to Jeanette Wehmeier and Alice Elkins who planned and prepared most of our meals.
August 22-25, Darrell & Jeanette Wehmeier and Dudley Feurborn & Carole Gibb hosted a Kansas Kountry Sunflower chapter rally at the Triple J RV Park at Russell, Kansas. They had 13 rigs in attendance, with at least three new member (or soon to be new members) by the end of the rally. On Saturday we car-pooled to Hoisington, Kansas to tour B&B Metal Arts. They are Bruce and Brent Bitter who are cousins of Darrell Wehmeier. They are true artists and craftsmen with metal. From flat silhouette metal art to park benches and spiral stairs, they do beautiful work. Many towns in Kansas have examples of their work on streetlight poles and in the parks. Thank you to our hosts for a fun rally. Even with rain every day, we had a fun time, and it was great to meet our new Sunflower chapter members.
The International Rally in Syracuse, NY will be history by the time you are reading this, so we will report on it in the next Konnection.
November 16th, at 12:00 noon is the Kansas Kountry Sunflower Drive-in Luncheon at the Dutch Kitchen at 6803 W. Highway 50, South Hutchison, KS. This is the last chapter event of 2019, so give Mike and Jeannie Girton a call and let them know that you will be there.
Thank you to all of our Newmar Kountry Klub friends for making this a great year.
