We have another addition to your calendar. Billy and Myrna Braly are hosting a Traveling Supreme gathering in Elephant Butte, New Mexico. The arrival date is April 19th, 2020. The departure date is April 24th but you are encouraged to come early or stay late to enjoy the area. Be sure to check on the weekly rate.
You can call Elephant Butte RV Resort at 575-744-5996. To check their web site, click https://www.elephantbuttelakervresort.com. As always be sure to tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. They are holding 10 back in sites until November 1st but they can accommodate requests for a pull thru as near the group as possible.
The City of Elephant Butte is home to the largest lake in the state and also The Sierra Del Rio Golf Course. It is the premier destination for recreational boating in the beautiful state of New Mexico.
Enjoy the local restaurants, hotels, rvparks, fishing guides, watercraft sales and rentals, city park and the beautiful walking trail. And of course mingling with your TS friends…
Mark your calendars. We will be celebrating the arrival of 2020 with a gathering in Gladewater Texas at the Antique Capital RV park. The official dates will be December 29th thru January. 2nd. Your hosts will be Jerry and Hessie Smith. Co hosts will be Jim and Tina Hoover.
To celebrate the new year we will be attending a music show at the rally hall featuring Dale Cummins who performs 50s, 60s and 70s music. Dinner will be served before the show. Here is a link to Dale’s website, https://thecdale.webs.com, or simply click here.
You can make your site reservation now by calling 903-845-7378. They have started a folder for this event so be sure to tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes. There are 15 sites blocked off for us and we need to fill at least 10 of them to have use of the hall on the other nights for cards, dominoes or pot lucks. Tickets for the show aren’t being sold just yet but aren’t expected to be very expensive. They will notify us when we can buy those tickets.
One last thought. Gladewater is about 60 miles from Canton TX. First Monday is January 6th so the weekend is the 4th and 5th. Possible tag along to the flea market? Maybe. Let me know if anyone might like to do that.
TS Members, I’m getting more excited about the North Louisiana “Southern Pride” Business Meeting to be held at Lincoln Park, Ruston, Louisiana for September 23rd to 27th. But before you come to North Louisiana, don’t forget we have two other gatherings, Buena Vista for July 21-26 and Chama on August 18-25th. Check the web page for details.
Now for info about the NL “Southern Pride” Business Meeting, don’t shy away because you think it is just a business meeting, you’ll be disappointed. I want to encourage you to go ahead and call for your reservations early (318-251-5156). You will not be given a site number but when you arrive you pick out the site you want and park. Most all sites are easily accessible to the club house.
This is a rally that is hosted by your executive committee. You will be served a welcome meal, two breakfasts and desserts on two other evenings. We will eat as a group at an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet with a senior discount and we’ll meet at an Italian Restaurant for a group meal which is across the street from Miss Kays’s (of Duck Dynasty) bakery. You’ll have options of several tours in three cities, Ruston, Monroe and West Monroe. We’ll have a few guest speakers through the week and you’ll learn why so many people are proud to be from North Louisiana. You’ll learn about some of the well known people from the area including a visit to Duck Dynasty. Our decorations and meals will reflect the culture of the area and that is not South Louisiana culture or dishes, I’m talking about North Louisiana pride, country food.
So mark your calendars now with the date and call to register. Tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes. Hope to see you in September in Ruston. Linda Brian
James and Gail Smith and Ted and Susan Kercher are heading to New Orleans after the General Meeting in Ruston, Louisiana. We leave Ruston on the 27th of September and stay somewhere in between and arrive in New Orleans on the 28th.
We are going to stay at Pontchartrain Landing, the address is 6001 France Road, New Orleans. Their phone number is 877-376-7850. It’s $61 per night (pull through full hook up site) and is paid in full at time of reservation. It is NONREFUNDABLE unless you pay a 10% trip cancellation charge. We are staying 3 nights, leaving on October 1st.
The campground is 12 minutes from the French Quarter and right on the water. They have a shuttle to town for $6 per day per person. There is a bar and grill on site with live music and BBQ and local cuisine.
This is a tag-a-long and there are lots of things to do in the area, but there will not be any planned activities arranged in advance. If you have nothing planned after the General Business, plan to join us in New Orleans!
Jim Hoover, your Wagon Master, has an update on some upcoming events.
As per my recent communication the tag along to Trader’s Village scheduled for June 1-2 has be canceled, or should I say postponed until a better time. This is something that I would still like to do, so with your input we will try to reschedule.
I recently put out information on a tag along back to Quartzsite for the RV show in 2020. We have four rigs signed up so far but I need to remind everyone that Black Rock RV park in Brenda AZ agreed to hold 8 sites until the end of May. That would be this coming Friday May 31. If you think that you might be interested call 928-927-4206 and tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. Just be aware that this is the slow time in Arizona RV parks so the office is only open from 8:00 – 12:00 Mon. thru Friday mountain time. To add to the confusion Arizona does not observe daylight savings time so this time of year mountain time and pacific time are the same. Anyway….try to call when the office is open.
Buena Vista, Chama, and Business Meeting
No changes at this time. I hope to see everyone in the mountains!
I spoke with Tori Brooks at the Trader’s Village RV park and she tells me that there are only two rigs reserved for the June 1-2 weekend. If this is correct I am thinking of rescheduling this event for maybe sometime in the fall. One of the things that I failed to realize was that many people may be involved in graduation events that particular weekend. If in fact there are more rigs registered then please let me know as soon as possible and we will go ahead with the plans.
If not, I will be glad to hear suggestions on when would be a more favorable time. I plan to contact the park tomorrow 05/21/19 based on feedback from club members. Thanks!
So we had a good time at the Entegra Homecoming Rally. Despite the rain and temps in the 30’s…. but a good chance to meet, greet, brag, and get some important lessons in how to care for our coach.
Now the Laningas and the Cooks are heading up to Michigan to catch up with the Kerchers and the Akers. The Phillips will be on their way to their 60 day caravan to the Canadian Maritime provinces.
As webmaster, I will encourage any members to send me any information with or without pictures so I can post it on our blog. That way we can all keep up to date on our travels and who knows, meet somewhere!
