Here’s a neat idea, brought to us from our President Susan Kercher. Let’s have a photo challenge! Not sure what that is? Well, hang on…..
Your challenge will be to post one picture of any Traveling Supreme member of members, from any time or event. It would be nice if you also posted when and where the picture was taken. Let’s get some memories started!
You may be aware that we have a Facebook community page. You can go there from the search bar on top of the Facebook page. Just type in Traveling Supremes. You have to be a member to post here, if you’re not a member, it’s easy… just press the “Join” button and wait for a note letting you know you are a member. No credit cards, no forms, that’s it. You can now fully participate in any discussion, or start one of your own.
Once you are in the Community, you have many options. A few lines down you’ll see a section in a blue box labeled “Contact us”, and right below that you see the option “Publish”. Touch that and you will see this screen:
Now you can type whatever message you want. Below that is a green Photo button, press that and you will be able to select any photo in your camera roll. One note… if you’ve never done this before you will be asked if Facebook can access your pictures. Answer Yes.
You also have the option of adding a Check-in (where this picture was taken), how you feel about it, even open your camera and take one. Once complete, touch “Continue” in the top right and your glorious picture and comments will show up on Facebook for the world to see.
Try it! Any specific questions ask here, or on Facebook, and we’ll try to answer them.
A&E signs, who manufactured our yard signs, has decided to discontinue making the individual yard signs. Too many signs were being returned as the post office bent or damaged them in shipment, and it was not cost-effective to replace the sign.
So if you have a sign fly it proudly, treat it as unique, because you can’t get a replacement.
I just picked up a supply of Traveling Supremes hats. There are two styles, a summer hat with mesh and a winter hat in solid material. They will be available at the New Years Rally at a cost of only $13 each.
Be sure to pick one up so you too can be among the RV fashionistas.
Our bylaws were updated in September 27, 2017. Although our Bylaws were properly edited, the web site was not updated with the changes. This has now been remedied. Here are the changes:
Article 2, Section 2 now reads:
Section 2. The officers shall be elected at the annual business meeting for terms of two years, but shall hold office until the successors are duly elected and installed. No elected officer may serve for more than two consecutive terms in any one office, except the secretary and treasurer.
Also added Article 2, Section 5:
Section 5: In the event that an officer resigns or is unable to serve, the Executive Committee shall appoint a replacement to serve until the next officer election.
The entire Bylaws may be found by clicking on this link:
In a few weeks we will have our Business Meeting. For more info, click here. Our Officers Corner has been updated with names and contact info, for more info click Officer’s corner. At the business meeting we will be taking pictures to add to the page so you’ll just have to wait to gaze at your officers until then.
Meanwhile be sure to make plans to attend the business meeting. You’ll be glad you did.
Most of you know that when the Traveling Supreme company shut down its assets were purchased by Jayco, and went back in production under the Entegra name. The Entegra company has an annual Homecoming Rally, where Entegra owners can meet, mingle attend class and brag about their coaches. This year, the Cooks and Laninga’s will be attending. It is held in Elkhart mid May.
Sine this is so close to Dick and Nancy Akers, we decided to drop by for a visit. So we made reservations at the Riverside RV Park in Coldwater, MI. As luck would have it, the Kerchers will be in the area and also stop by. That prompted this post, if anyone else want to join in we will be at the park May 24 – 31.
As a side note, the rains and cold weather continue in the Midwest and South. The Cooks needed help getting out of their own driveway, and the Tom Sawyer RV Park is closed again due to flooding. Let’s keep all the people impacted by the weather in our thoughts.
On edit: Deanne and Dave Phillips are also attending the Entegra Homecoming Rally. And your webmaster added the wrong RV Park name in Michigan, that should be Harbor Cove RV Park in Coldwater, MI. Oops!
A while back the Cooks and the Phillips each bought a Cricket. No, not the hopping kind, but the battery powered wheeled kind. It comes in real handy when trying to get around in these ever growing larger RV parks. So, as a public service, here is a link to the Cricket web site:
Well we just finished our West Memphis gathering hosted by Ted and Susan Kercher. They did a great job and we all had a great time despite the rainy weather. Love that Memphis BBQ! If you missed this one there are plenty more opportunities to join in the fun.
In June we have a tag a long to Trader Village in Houston. Check in May 31 and check out June 3rd. Call Tori Brooks at 281-890-5500. More info Here
Then in July we have a gathering in Buena Vista Colorado hosted by the Butauds and the Hoovers. Check in July 21st and check out July 28th. The blocked off sites at Mt. Princeton RV were released in March but you still may be able to get in by calling Cindy at 719-395-6206. Join us and escape the summer heat in the mountains of Colorado! More info Here
From there we go to Chama NM. The Gathering dates are August 18th to the 25th but as most of you know many members come and go at various times. Another great way to escape the heat in the mountains. Sky Mountain RV doesn’t open until May 15th ( it snowed in Chama yesterday) but call 575-766-1100 or go online to start making your reservation but do it soon as this park is very popular! More info Here
Then we will have the annual business meeting in Ruston LA at Lincoln Parish park 318-251-5156. Check in Sept 21st and check out Sept 27th. More info Here
That rounds out our current schedule for 2019 but I’m always open to ideas. We are also in search of a host for the next new year’s rally. I am also considering another tag a long to Quartzsite next January so let me know if you might be interested.
As posted in Rallies, the 2018 General Business Meeting and Rally will be held October 10-14, 2018 and hosted by President, Gail Smith. We will stay at the Cowtown RV Park, the address is 7000 Interstate 20 East (exit 418), Aledo, Texas. Spots are being held for us until September 15. You may reserve by calling 817-441-7878 and talk to Jaynie. She has a special section for 40-45 foot rigs. Rally rate is $31 per night and includes rally room.
There are obviously lots of fun things to do in the Fort Worth/Weatherford area. Tentative plans are to visit the Railhead Smokehouse for barbecue and music, have free time to visit the Texas State Fair or museum area of Fort Worth, take a Fort Worth tour by bus, including the Stockyards Parade, visit the Vintage Car museum and Chandor Gardens in Weatherford. Of course we will have our annual club financed catered meal at the business meeting, with lots of other good meals at restaurants, camp and more!
There will be no rally fee, although there may be a small charge for the bus and garden
tours. More details and reservations for tours when we are closer to the event.
