Our February rally took place at
Sunshine Travel RV Resort in Vero Beach, FL during February 21st and
22nd. Hosts and hostesses were Eddie and Joyce Julian and Bill and Eileen
Kopp along with help from Bob Danza and guests Steve and Fran Powers with
pancake help from Phil Sortore! Thanks to them and everyone else who chipped
in to help keep the weekend running smoothly.
We had a very large turn-out of
campers and guests; 17 rigs from our Chapter along with several visitors
camping with us from Chapter 193. We had a large number of round
dancers who were able to enjoy the cueing of our guest cuer, Joanne Helton
on Saturday night. It is always enjoyable to have Joanne and Ken come spend
an evening with us.
Our caller, Ron Reardon, gave us
two nights of fun dancing. He and Joanne also had a workshop on Saturday
afternoon taking turns working with us on calls and cues.
Our pot-luck dinner was well
attended, with 44 members and guests. Once again, we had a wide variety of
great tasting dishes. Dessert was a beautiful 55th Anniversary cake for Phil
and Deanna Sortore. Thanks to Al and Mary Teschner for ordering and bringing
it to the rally.
Once again, our Chapter took home
the trophy for best attendance at the International Camporee held in July
2013. We had it on display at the Board Member table during the pot-luck
We welcome new members Denny and
Carol Huff to our family. They are from IL and spend the winter in FL. Many
