Oklahoma State Directors
The weather is finally getting warmer, and we bet that most of you are already out exploring. The anticipation of heading out to explore this great country is such a rite of passage. Whether you are headed to a National Park, State Campgrounds, Newmar Rally, or an epic road trip we hope that it will be the best ever. A good tip to remember when traveling is to check what county your campground or overnight stop is located in – just in case the weather in your area becomes severe. We also added a NOA weather radio to our travel stuff in case phone service is spotty.
The Oklahoma Spring Rally is in the books. We had 20 coaches attend the rally at Little Turtle RV at Lake Eufaula. They were great to work with and if you are ever in this part of the country, stop and spend a few days. The majority of the coaches were from Oklahoma with even two couples attending their first rally and had some visitors from other states also. It is so good to meet fellow Kountry Klub members from around the country. We learn something new each rally we attend or sometimes we find a new gadget that we need. Our Tech Talk on Saturday morning provided helpful information to all, and the open discussion was great. Thank you to all those who helped make this rally happen. These are only possible because of all the volunteers. We appreciate each and every one of you.
Thank you also to Prairie Grass Productions, LLC for bringing a little bit of Oklahoma and the wild west history to life with their stories. We were honored to share our Friday night dinner with them. US Deputy Marshall Bill Tilghman, Belle Starr, US Deputy Marshall Bass Reeves, US Deputy Marshall Heck Thomas, and US Deputy Marshall Chris Madsen thank you again. They shared about their lives and how they were a part of the law for the unassigned territory that became the state of Oklahoma.
Our group visited the Three Rivers Museum located at 220 Elgin St in Muskogee. If you are ever in the area, be sure to check it out. It is one of the best museums about local history you will find. The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame is just across the street and worth your time also. Who knew that the small town of Muskogee is home to the first Girl Scout Cookie, a highly decorated WW ll submarine, and is the final resting place of the famous US Deputy Marshall Bass Reeves and was the final point on the Trail of Tears for many Native Americans.
Thank you also to Evan & Debbie Hughes, Newmar Members-at-Large for attending and providing lots of great information about the Klub. It was great that you could be a part of our rally.
Don’t forget the Region Three Rally will be held in Branson, Missouri June 14th-18th. It sounds like it is going to be a blast with lots of fun activities. We hope that you all will be able to plan your spring and summer adventures around attending this rally.
The International Rally is September 30th-October 7th in Sedalia, Missouri. Registration is open, and we hope that you can attend. Region Three will be responsible for Parking and Registration. If you are interested in helping, please let Region Three Directors Larry & Patsy Wood know. We helped last year, and it was a great way to meet Klub members from all over the United States and Canada.
In your travels be sure to check out any Newmar Kountry Klub events along the way that peak your interest.
We hope that 2023 will be full of travel and new adventures along with making new friends and meeting up with old friends along the way. We can be reached at: Allen; email@example.com; 405-812-3150. Natalie; firstname.lastname@example.org; 405-812-3152.
