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.
Vaya Con Dios Amigos!

Yes, the New Years Rally is here! And to start things off, here are a few of the rallies/gatherings we’re starting to organize:
Memphis end March 2019;
Traders Village in Houston spring 2019;
Buena Vista in July 2019;
Chama in August 2019.
More to follow as plans firm up. Meanwhile, here are pictures of some of the rigs of New Year Rally attendees, in no particular order.
Your humble webmaster is already parked at the Vineyards, where we will be until mid January (but not at Christmas). You can see our coach all by its lonesome in the middle of the picture above. The park is almost empty, hard to think it will be sold out at New Years!
So looking forward to some company and help us drink our wine. We’re in site 78.
The Vineyards of Fredericksburg RV Resort has been completely booked for weeks now. We had a cancellation for our New Year’s Gathering today and the manager has agreed to hold the site for a Traveling Supreme for a day or so. If you know of a member or a guest of a member that would like that site please advise them to call the park tomorrow am Tuesday the 18th. Do not delay. If not that’s OK because there is a waiting list of other campers that want in the park.
For those already signed up, we will see you soon! And for all a very Merry Christmas!
Don’t forget to take a white elephant gift for bingo at the New Years Rally….
Please note that this is not a Travel Supreme event. In fact, Jim Hoover will be publishing an agenda for the rally before long. And there are conflicts between a scheduled lunch and the Elvis concert. But some of us will have non-TS family members attending the balloon festival so the info was published only for information purposes.
So keep this event in mind but only as an alternative to other scheduled events.
Turns out there is a big deal balloon glow and ascension, polo match, and festival in Fredericksburg during our rally time. You can see more info on their web site, just click here.
Jim Hoover is looking into it, meanwhile, tickets are selling fast. A $20 ticket gets you in to the festival and the balloon glow the night before. You can get to/from the festival with a $5 shuttle bus from Fredericksburg.
This is just an alert that this event is going on at that time. But if there is an interest we can go as a group but we should buy festival tickets now. This is not a club event, so everyone is on their own to get tickets etc.
