Well here we are halfway through 2022. Welcome to July and I hope this finds each of you doing well as we prepare to celebrate our great nation's Independence. We had a great time at the State Rally in Glenns Ferry and were represented by 8 rigs, nearly one fourth of the 38 total attendees. As I stated in an email to each of you we got 'Breaking News' at the rally in that Good Sam is no longer going to support the State or Provincial Directors (Camping program) after Dec. 31, 2022. Please refer to Eldona's newsletter, the minutes of the June Rally, or my email for details. One difference from my newsletter is the contest for naming the new State organization will end July 31. A name will be chosen from those submitted to Eldona at email@example.com and a new contest will commence to determine a logo for the State organization with submissions to be voted on at the Fall Roundup.
After the Rally, several of us moved to 1000 Springs Resort in Hagerman where we were treated to the treasures of the area by Ed and Kathy Jones. A huge thank you goes out to them for organizing the outing, having an old time picnic in the park and sharing Ed's knowledge of the area having grown up near there. We got some spectacular views of the Snake River and Canyon areas preserved as a State Park.
Coming this month, we are looking forward to a trip to Union Creek Campground (Phillips lake out of Baker, Oregon). Scott Dowdle and Marilyn Fredricks are the Assistant Wagonmasters for the outing. They will be sending an email with the agenda and opportunities to volunteer for meals etc. I'm sure they would also welcome any tips for exploring the area. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The State Fall Roundup in Jerome is set for September. At this point our Chapter will be putting on the Silent Auction so be rounding up your new or slightly used items you are willing to part with.LOL The 2023 State Rally will be in June at the Elmore County Fairgrounds. Our Chapter along with the Kavemen Travelers and Capitol Gypsies will be hosting it.
Finally, thank you for being a member of our Chapter. You are appreciated and God's blessing to each of you,
Ron Agenbroad, President
