New Years Update

Hello everyone,

A few days ago I spoke with Charlene at the Antique Capital RV Park and was very pleased to find out that we now have 15 rigs signed up for our New Year’s Gathering! She also informed me that all had purchased tickets for the dinner show on New Year’s eve. That’s good news and even more good news is that there‎ are still openings for sites and tickets so don’t miss out on the fun. If you aren’t signed up, call soon before they’re all booked! 

Hessie sent me a copy of the flyer advertising the dinner and performance on New Year’s eve. I have attached a picture of it. Looks like fun! If you have already reserved your site, keep an eye out for additional information in the coming weeks.

Also, don’t forget about the tag along to Canton trade days after the Gathering if you are interested. 

I hope to see you there! Vaya con Dios!

Bylaws update

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.

New Orleans Tagalong

After our Annual Business Meeting the James Smith’s, the Cooks, the Braly’s and the Kercher’s took off for New Orleans. We stopped for the night, September 27th, at River View RV Park, a really nice park, in Vidalia, Louisiana. We sat out in the afternoon and went to dinner at Rioux 61 as recommended by some of the Louisiana folks! We all had a great dinner and evening.

The next morning we headed down to New Orleans! We stayed at Ponchartrain Landing RV Park for three nights.

Some of the highlights include the sights and sounds of the French Quarter including Pat O’Brien’s, the WWII Museum (fantastic), beignets at Cafe Du Monde, the French market, dinner at Pascal’s Manale, dinner and entertainment at our campground and more!

I especially enjoyed having never been to New Orleans. It was a fun tag-a-long and today we all headed out for other places!

Traveling Supreme yard signs.

Thanks to Dave Phillips and Jim Hoover for arranging for Traveling Supreme members to get swag (hats, jackets, signs). To simplify the ordering of yard signs, Dave has contacted the sign maker and set up an ordering system. Below you will find a picture of the order form. Just print it out, fill in the blanks including shipping and payment info, mail it to the address shown and watch your mail box with bated breath. Soon you too can set yourself apart from the horde of RVers with your very own yard sign and proudly announce that you are a Traveling Supreme member.

You can find the order form under the Member menu option on the left at any time, or, you can just click https://travelingsupremes.com/yard-sign-orders/. And the form is also shown below….

TS Quartzite update

Hello Everyone,

I just got a call from Black Rock RV in Brenda, AZ. They are still holding 2 sites for the Traveling Supremes but can only hold them until the end of this week since they have others that want those sites. Actually I thought they had been released some time back but it looks like you may have one more last chance to go.

We currently have 7 rigs signed up and some of us are going on to Yuma for a few days after Quartzsite.

Contact me for additional information or call Black Rock RV. See you in Ruston!

Vaya Con Dios Amigos!

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.

President’s report

Webmaster note: this report was delayed in posting because I was in an area where internet was poor or non existent. OTOH, we didn’t need AC…

Unbelievably 2019 has passed the halfway mark.   Ted and I hosted a Memphis Rally enjoying fellowship, sightseeing and some pretty good barbecue!

The Buena Vista Rally produced some great pictures and it looked like a good time was had by all!

Chama is currently in full swing and Ted and I are missing that cooler climate for sure…can you say jealous!

Next up is our Annual Business Meeting!  I know we are all looking forward to all the fun things Linda has put together for us and that fine Southern hospitality and food!

Mark Twain once said “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness; and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts”!  So let’s not worry about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey! (Bans Hoffman)!
