Texas State Directors
Greetings from coastal Texas! Our summer travel season has finished, and we are happy to see and hear that many of our friends had amazing trips in their beautiful Newmar coaches.
We personally started our summer at the International Rally in Rock Springs. The weather was hot and sometimes windy, but the rally was great fun and gave us all a chance to see old friends and make lots of new ones.
We followed that rally with time in the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico. It was wonderful to enjoy cool weather and lots of RAIN! Our heat and drought in Texas this year has been exhausting, depressing, and expensive. Our prayers go out to the farmers and ranchers who have been suffering through these hard times.
By the time this is printed, we will have had our Texas State Rally. It looks like attendance will be small this time, but I suspect everyone is still too hot to enjoy spending much time outdoors. We are looking forward to October in Mineola and November in Fredericksburg. Both of those locations have so much to see and do. The Klub is always happy to welcome new members, but it is also always open to visiting with any guests who want to attend one of the rallies. Please view the schedule of events as posted in the NKK website.
In the last printing, we related that we were in the process of replacing our refrigerator. I know that there are many great dealers associated with Newmar, but we want to give a personal shout-out for Wade’s RV in Glenpool, Oklahoma. They were fabulous with getting the replacement done quicker than scheduled and had superb customer service. Besides that, the cost was less than we expected!
