Hello SoCal Members, at the last newsletter we seemed to be just recovering from the winter rains and cold weather. Unfortunately they were not quite finished with us yet. The “NO RAIN RALLY” was a partial rain rally this year but every one still had a great time. Many thanks to Pat & Gary Adams, Rosalie & Gene Owens and the local VFW hall, Post 1508 for hosting this event. The hall not only let us use their facility each day but fed us some great dinners of BBQ ribs and one of the best Rib Eye steaks you will ever eat. Rain or shine this is always a great rally.

Discussions continued at the Western Regional Rally about the 3 Chapter merger and we have worked out the following details. This still needs to be approved by the National Board, hopefully at the 2019 National Rally. If approved the new chapter will be called “Great Western Chapter” Bob Clapper will be the President, Richard Hunter, John Carr and a TBD will become Vice Presidents, Marilyn Wheeler will become the Treasurer, Debbie Darby will be the “New” Membership Chair and Pat Adams as Secretary.

The Western Regional Rally had its share of rain as well but the resort and its amenities were great. Even the rain could not stop Joe Darby from making his famous garlic bread and BBQ chicken dinner on the last night. If you are traveling thru Central California you should plan to make this one of your stops. Thank you to the Rally committee of Adams, Clapper’s, Darby’s and Scott’s for planning and executing a very successful rally which included raising $3000.00 for the ACA Scholarship Foundation.

Most likely by the time you are reading this we will have just completed the National Rally in Lake Conroe, TX.

An August Rally is in the works and will be hosted by Jon and Brooke Wollam. The site will be the Yank’s RV Resort in Greenfield, CA. This is just a short drive from the Monterey Peninsula which is one of the most beautiful areas of California. The dates are now set for August 15th thru 18th.

September 1 – 4, 2019 will be at the Jackson Rancheria RV Resort hosted by Craig Ortet and Chris. This is a very nice resort with modern amenities and an Indian Casino on the property. There is an all-you-can-eat Lobster buffet that we may be attending as well.

Jerry Scott has reserved October 11-13, 2019 for a return rally to the Tapo Canyon facility to attend the Ronald Reagan Library. There are 16 sites with full hook-ups.

Rally registration for these upcoming rallies will be posted after the National rally in May.

Travel safely and enjoy your time on the road,
Jerry Scott SoCal President
