Elkhart County Fair

The Elkhart County Fair is the second largest county fair in the U.S.  Parking is in a field with golf carts standing by to take you to the Fair gates.  Inside is a trolley which you can ride to the many areas – vender buildings, exhibit buildings, carnival rides, animals and, of course, interesting fair food.  There are also 275 50-amp full rv hookups & an additional 72 30-amp ones.  I believe they were all filled for the Fair!

Because of the inclement weather, some decided not to visit the fair.  However, the Phillips, Smiths and others did attend the Fair and had a great time even though during the course of the day the tornado sirens sounded and everyone was directed to shelters!  After the “all clear” the Fair activities resumed albeit a bit rainy.  The people were exceptionally friendly & welcoming.  Phillips said, “We’d go again but would wish for better weather!”

 

 

The first dinner

Frito pie!  What can be more Texas than that?  So we all enjoyed our arrival meal and the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and, in some cases, make new friends.  Nothing fancy but a great way to start the rally!

Unfortunately, our blog site (the one you’re viewing now) can’t show images taken with the latest “thing”, but our Facebook page does.  See it here in all it’s glory.

It’s not too late!

Traveling Supreme members are beginning to gather at the Coleta Creek KOA ( for full details click here ).  Joyful hellos, hamburgers, RV stories, pizza, even more RV stories, tater tots, and even more RV anecdotes are filling the air.  We can expect a wonderful new year event!

It’s not too late to join us!  Come join in the fun and bring in the new year in RV style.  Below are a few people in the clubhouse.  How many do you recognize?

Poor picture, but you get the idea…..

Tandy Krugler’s update

Tandy Krugler’s mother (and Paul’s mother-in-law), Alta Kirk, lost her battle with health problems/dementia on Tuesday, November 21. After cremation, memorial services will be held at a later date. I am sure they would appreciate any cards or prayers from fellow Traveling Supremes during this sad time.

Paul and Tandy have been members for about 3-4 years and are from Austin. Many active members know them and have been aware of her mom’s illness. They come to Chama every year and most Rallies.

Cancellation, Wagon Master notes

Canceled (proposed) rally

James & Gail Smith have worked very hard trying to secure a RV Park so we could attend the Earth Art Festival & the Rock Stacking Championship. However, they have been unable to find accommodations so we will have to cancel this event. It has been removed from Future Rallies.  Maybe next year!

Wagon master notes

This is an excellent time to light the fire, snuggle up to the fireplace, and think about future rallies.  Our VP and Wagon Master, DeAnne Phillips,  has also given this much thought and wrote an excellent reminder for all of us.  You can find it under the Officers Page, or click here  and scroll down to DeAnne Phillips.
