South Central Chapter News
Hello South Central Members
Summer has been busy for most of us with the National Rally and summer road trips all across this great nation. We have been on the road since June 3rd, and I know many of you have also been travelling now that most of us have been vaccinated.
The news I must share with you is that our Fall Rally & Christmas Rally are now on the books and being planned as we speak. The Fall Rally will be held Sept. 28th- Oct. 1st (4 nights) at Red Bud Ranch RV Resort in Round Rock, TX. Check out our website for all the RV parks contact info. and rally details. This is a new RV park that opened in 2020 with great amenities. The sites are all pull-thru and it has a nice clubhouse.
The Christmas rally will be the first week of December, Dec. 7th – 9th (3 nights) at Port A RV Resort in Port Aransas, TX. Jack Jones is putting it together and we’re looking for a Rally-master to host this rally. If you can help, please give Jack or myself a call, or you can email one of us.
On another note, our chapter has picked up over ten new members in the last 2-months. I’d like to personally invite all new members to one of our future Chapter Rallies and offer a $20 dollar discount on your rally fees for the first chapter rally you attend.
I’d also like to thank Deb Merritt, “Ask RV Debbie” for attending our Spring Rally in Eufaula, OK. Our members really enjoyed her expertise and walk-around time to get to know their coaches better. Nineteen coaches were in attendance and Robin & Myrna Fagala along with co-hosts, Gary & Rosa Stevenson put on a fantastic rally.
On a sad note, our long-time members Jackie & Gene Anderson recently lost their son Matthew. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them for their loss. Jackie and Gene Anderson have established a memorial in honor of their son, Matthew Anderson, with the VA Dogs of Texas. All donations in his honor are appreciated by the Anderson family and the VA Dogs of Texas who help our veterans in our chapter’s regional area. Donations through the website are by credit card only. You can find this website at: https://vadogs.org/memorials/
Wanted to inform you of another member to keep in your thoughts and prayers. One of our well-known fellow travelers, BJ Stampley, recently fell some distance from a ladder and sustained numerous injuries. BJ, we all wish you well and hope you have a speedy recovery.
