Washington State Directors
Hello again everyone and Happy Spring. We made it through winter and now it’s time to get the wheels turning on the New Aire.
As you are reading this, we are in Yuma, Arizona along with several other Newmar owners that are riding on a Freightliner chassis. This is our first-time visiting Yuma, and it is so different than we pictured it being. There is so much more to Yuma than expected, we can see why so many people spend their winters here. When we leave Yuma, we will be traveling to the Phoenix area visiting with friends, and then we will celebrate Easter with our grandson and his wife that live year-round in the Valley of the Sun. Sad to say we are arriving in Phoenix too late for some spring training Mariners games. Perhaps better planning on our part next time.
The Washington State Rally is on the NKK calendar and several of you have already made your reservation. We are excited to see that so many are anticipating the fun we are going to have at Northern Quest Resort Casino RV Park in Airway Heights just outside of Spokane. Dates are arrival September 6, departure September 10. If you are planning to attend, we urge you to make your reservations now, as they are open to the public and are not holding sites for us. To make your reservations call 833-702-2082 and make sure that you give them booking number 28362. The booking number will ensure that you get our discounted rate. These are premium back-in sites, and the sooner you make your reservation the more likely we will all be parked together. They have a 2-day cancelation policy for refunds so make your plans now to join us in September. Final date to register is July 1. The price for the rally is $295 per couple which will include 3 catered dinners and 4 breakfasts.
We have an international theme for this rally which we think you will find interesting. The rally is early enough in September so that those planning to travel to the International Rally in Missouri will have plenty of travel time. We sure hope you will join us.
We welcome all you Oregon Pioneers and Idaho Spudnuts that are looking for a home. Also, for those that are going on the NKK Alaska cruise, please feel free to join us following the cruise.
Don’t forget the Evergreen Aires chapter rally is June 25- 29 in beautiful Sequim, Washington along the shores of the beautiful Strait of Juan de Fuca. We are looking forward to seeing many of you there.
Blessings for safe travels,
