Trader’s Village update

Hello everyone,

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!

And here we are….

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!

And we clean up nicely too…..

Quartzsite 2020

Hello everyone….

A few of you have expressed an interest in going back to Quartzsite so we’re going to do a tag along again in 2020. ‎The show dates are Jan. 18th through the 26th, 2020. I called two parks in Brenda, about 12 miles from the big show in Quartzsite. Black Rock was the first and only one to return my call so we will stay there again. It is a full hook up park and offers a shuttle to the show several times daily. They have agreed to hold 8 sites but only until the end of May due to the popularity of this event so call them at 928-927-4206. Be sure to tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. Be sure to read the cancellation policy closely. This will be a tag along so no real agenda just fun and fellowship!

Call me if you have any questions.

Memphis changes, part 2

As the rains continue all over the country, there has been an update on the National Weather Service river forecast. They are now showing the river will not recede below the 31 foot mark until the 27th, which is not going to allow the park time to do any cleanup for our rally. This information was sent to me by Michael and Patti Hutton who have been following TS posts and would like to join us at the Memphis rally! Thank you Michael and Patti and we look forward to meeting you both.

Ted and I have decided to delay the rally until April 8, 2019 and hopefully this will give the river time to recede and Tom Sawyer’s time to clean up! The NEW GATHERING DATES ARE: Arrive Monday April 8 and depart on Saturday April 13. Those that can make these new dates and would like to join us, please let me know by text 619-972-6471 or email susankercher@aol.com.

Some of the things we are planning besides watching the barges go up and down the are: Memphis Rock and Soul Museum ($11 for adults).

There are several other museums we may want to think about, such as the Pink Palace or Civil War Museum. Dixon Gallery and Gardens ($7 for adults) and the Cherry Cafe. Multiple gardens with classical sculptures and world class paintings inside.

Peabody Hotel to watch the duck walk! Not joking…live ducks! Graceland for those that haven’t been.

Thanks for your patience,

Tes and Susan Kercher

Memphis Gathering update

As of this time we are still planning to have a West Memphis gathering from March 27 to March 31, 2019. But you may have noticed the park is closed due to high water. And the park does not answer phone calls or emails when it is closed. But current Weather Service projections are that the water level will be below 31 feet when the rally is planned. Just in case, I plan to call another campground that is not near the river and check their availability as a backup plan.

Please text me at 619-972-6471 or email me at susankercher@aol.com if you are still interested. If the Weather Service is correct, the park will not re-open until March 16th. I’m sorry it’s going to be last minute and I will send out another message about an alternate campground in a day or so. Also the details are on the website or check with me on the plans for the gathering.

So stay dry and think positive thoughts, and join us for a fun rally. Wherever it will be held.

Thank you for your patience…Susan Kercher

Traders Village tagalong

If you’ve never been to a Texas Trader’s Village event, now is the time to fix that. This is an extremely popular event, and we have got special rates at their very nice RV park. Arrive Friday, May 31st and depart ‎Monday June 3rd. You can arrive early or stay late but they have offered a reduced rally rate for those dates if we have 10 rigs. There are 12 sites blocked off. Call 281-890-5500 and ask for Tori Brooks. Tell her that you are with the Traveling Supremes.  This is a tag along so there won’t be a host or agenda.
