TS Quartzite update

Hello Everyone,

I just got a call from Black Rock RV in Brenda, AZ. They are still holding 2 sites for the Traveling Supremes but can only hold them until the end of this week since they have others that want those sites. Actually I thought they had been released some time back but it looks like you may have one more last chance to go.

We currently have 7 rigs signed up and some of us are going on to Yuma for a few days after Quartzsite.

Contact me for additional information or call Black Rock RV. See you in Ruston!

Vaya Con Dios Amigos!

President’s report

Webmaster note: this report was delayed in posting because I was in an area where internet was poor or non existent. OTOH, we didn’t need AC…

Unbelievably 2019 has passed the halfway mark.   Ted and I hosted a Memphis Rally enjoying fellowship, sightseeing and some pretty good barbecue!

The Buena Vista Rally produced some great pictures and it looked like a good time was had by all!

Chama is currently in full swing and Ted and I are missing that cooler climate for sure…can you say jealous!

Next up is our Annual Business Meeting!  I know we are all looking forward to all the fun things Linda has put together for us and that fine Southern hospitality and food!

Mark Twain once said “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness; and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts”!  So let’s not worry about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey! (Bans Hoffman)!

2020 New years rally

Jerry and Hessie Smith and Jim and Tina Hoover want to invite you to the 2019 New Year’s Eve No-Fee Rally. So mark your calendar for Sunday December 29th—Thursday January 2nd. It is four nights at the Antique Capital RV Park in Gladewater, Texas. Reservations are open now (903-845-7378). Cost is $32.40 per night but could be lower ( special rate) on two of the night of our stay. Charlene and Heidi will also sign you up for the New Year’s Eve party right on the campground. The cost for dinner and entertainment ( music by Dale Cumin) until midnight has been estimated to be between $30 and &35 per person for the evening. Tickets are understandably non-refundable.

Please note that our rally ends as the January flea market in Canton begins. Also if you come early, there is a church western dance on Saturday the 28th that we are invited to attend.

More details will come, but go ahead and book your site. We are looking forward to a fun time with each of you.

Buena Vista gathering report

Buena Vista July 21-28, 2019

The Buena (Bu nah)Vista campers gathered late Sunday afternoon and enjoyed barbecue, beans, potatoe salad and Key Lime pie provided by co-hosts: Lou and Carol Butaud and Jim and Tina Hoover. In attendance were Carole and Bernie Lezell, Joe and Sue Kelly and Jerry and Hessie Smith.

The first full day of the rally started with Jerry, Lou, Joe and Jim producing a wonderful pancake breakfast with sausages. Most of the group drove up to St. Elmo to peruse the old mining town. All of us stopped at Hot Springs Restaurant for a late lunch. Then at 5:30 we gathered for Happy Hour, stories and nibbles.

On Tuesday we caravaned to Salida parking next to the beautiful park. Some shopped, but all returned for our reservation at the Boathouse on the River. Several rafters were spotted.

Wednesday was “an open day”. It was also Carol and Lou’s ninth anniversary. He was taking her out to breakfast and asked if anyone would like to join them. All of us‼️The first two restaurants were closed even when their websites said otherwise. The third place had scarce bakery goods only and the fourth restaurant recommended would be open at 11:00. So Sue Kelly made us delicious breakfast burritos with Jerry Smith adding crispy bacon. Carole and Bernie went to visit the local museum and tour the old railroad drive. The rest drove up to the beautiful Cottonwood Lake. Cards, pizza, brewery, and dinner filled out the day.

Thursday morning started with donuts provided by Lou and coffees by Sue beside the Kelly’s rig. We all drove up the gorgeous road to Cottonwood Pass. Some ate in town. Some played cards, a few napped, but we all attended the Mt. Princeton RV Park annual fish fry potluck at 5:00. Cindy invited our group to go first. Delicious!!!

Friday was Leadville Day. Those who had not previously toured the mining museum did so. Others drove the Silver Kings backroads and shopped. The meeting point was High Mountains Pies for the best pizza. Happy Hour at Carol and Lou’s park model in the front porch was more like a light supper with all contributing. Saturday was again a free day. Some ate breakfast at the Rooster Crow, last minute shopping, meeting after lunch for tasty ice cream on the patio at Louie’s. Then the daily card game. We ended our day at Quincy’s Restaurant for the Prime Rib dinner!! On Sunday Carol and Sue sent us off with pastry treats and well wishes. A VERY GOOD rally!

Thanks to Hessie Smith for taking these notes and Tina Hoover for her excellent photography.
