Alas!!!!!!! The camping season is winding down for our group with the conclusion of the Southern Idaho campout. As with many of the Good Sam functions, total attendance in Emmett was down. But the Time to Travel group made a great showing by having more rigs in attendance than any of the other chapters in the state. Just shows that some of us know where the fun is. I always like the Southern Idaho campout because it is not that far from home (requires minimal gas consumption) and parking in the city park works out great in that there is minimal traffic noise at night, our rigs have power, there is grass outside the front door and lots of shade if one needs it. I have always felt like this is a great campout even though it is right in the middle of the city of Emmett.
As our year winds down , we look forward to having new officers for the coming year. So I would encourage anyone to step forward and help lead the chapter to another great year. None of the positions are that difficult. The past year has been good in that we have had some great camp outs and we have had good growth in the chapter. This is partly due to all of the help you have provided as members and particularly those who have held office and appointments. I would like to thank all of you for your help. It takes the assistance and cooperation of everyone to make the chapter a successful and effective chapter. And for that I thank you very much.
For those of us not going south for the winter it is time to think about winterizing our rigs for the winter months. It is somewhat sad to think about doing that with all of the good times we have had this summer. But the planning is in the process for developing the campouts for next year. I think you will find that there are some good outings being planned. For our snowbirds, we wish for you a great winter season while basking in the sunshine of the South. We will miss you but hope you have a great time in your travels. The reason we have these RV rigs is to enjoy them. So we need to get them out and use them as often as possible.
HAPPY TRAVELING TO ALL.
