Palmetto State Unit 22 had fun at the Region 3 Rally

There were 12 rigs and 23 members of our unit that were able to attend the Region 3 Rally held recently in Hiawassee, GA at the GA Mountain Campgrounds.   It appears that everyone had a good time and really enjoyed getting together for fun, fellowship and adventure. Looks like a beautiful place to camp! There were helpful seminars and enjoyable entertainment, and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends from other units in Region 3.

If you missed the Feb rally, you missed a good time at Myrtle Beach!

We had 12 members and 3 guests attend the Feb rally at PirateLand Family Campground at Myrtle Beach. The weather was breezy but sunny and we enjoyed a view of the Snow Moon (Feb full moon) over the ocean on Friday night. We had Happy Hour at George and Martha’s motorhome every evening and enjoyed  delicious  seafood and a wonderful Italian meal with the group on Friday and Saturday. Add to that some relaxing (or invigorating) walks on the beach (depending on what day you were on the beach), plenty of fellowship, other good meals with friends, and you get a wonderful rally! It served as a good reminder that Spring and lots more camping is just around the corner.

One couple decided they were not ready to de-winterize their trailer and chose to stay in a rental cabin at the campground, which proved to be very comfortable and convenient. A nice alternative if you want to join the fun but don’t want to tow!

Grandkids enjoyed the June Grandkids Rally !

We had more grandkids than ever before at the June Rally – 7 were there for the whole weekend and 3 more joined us for fun on Saturday. The kids had a great time, having fun in the swimming hole, watching movies, playing cards, competing in a “minute to win it” and having their own Jalapeño Pepper eating demo by Connor!

We had lots of help and the adults had fun too. Hope we can keep growing this event each year, the more the merrier!

April Rally was held jointly with Southeastern Bus Nuts

Nine units from our club joined with 11 rigs from the Bus Nuts for a fun April Rally. The Bus Nuts/Airstreamers cooked some great food and we loved seeing them and looking inside their rigs. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Fred, with Sarah looking quite sporty in her new short hair style. 

The decision was made to host the Carolinas  State Rally this year – so work is already underway in booking entertainment, catered meals, etc. Be looking now for good auction items to add to the silent auction. Let us know if you have ideas for good craft projects, decorations, local tours, etc. We want to make this State Rally extra special!

Please keep these members in your thoughts and prayers as they face challenges:

Sarah and Linda: continuing treatment for cancer and their spouses Fred and Dean

Martin: facing additional surgery on Friday , also remember  Ann

Dick and Luci

Marion and Edna

George: skin cancer surgery on his face means stitches and reduced talking (poor Martha!)

We miss you, please hurry back!

Christmas Brunch well-attended in Greenville, SC

dec1011singalong.jpgdec-1011-bernie-jeff-and-chuck.jpgdec-1011brunch.jpgMany thanks to our hosts, Chuck and Beth Lee, for allowing us to meet at their lovely, historic home in Greenville, SC for our annual Holiday Brunch. 24 members attended this year, and we all enjoyed the festive setting, wonderful food, and beautiful piano playing provided by Beth (with some Christmas caroling lead by Luci). Dick gave us a short Holiday message. We missed Diane and Sarah who were out due to illness or injury, and all the others who were not able to attend.

Fun at the Carolina’s State Rally!

state-rally-11male-fashion.jpgstate-rally-11game-day.jpgMany folks from both North and South Carolina units pulled together to help make the 2011 Carolina’s State Rally fun and successful (and many thanks to Alicia from the South Florida unit.) The weather was a little rainy but we had pretty Fall weather for the “Day In The Park” Game Day on Friday and the Saturday Open House that welcomed interested people from the community to tour both vintage and newer Airstreams. The Male Fashion Show certainly drew some laughter, and we enjoyed fine professional entertainment other nights. The Yesterukes once again were a big hit. Generous donors and bidders made the Silent and Live Auctions a success. We had outstanding items this year that made for some competitive biddingst-rally-11mtn-view.jpgst-rally-11open-house.jpg!

We also held the Officer’s Installation on Wednesday night, other events included a  Joker tournament, Card Bingo,  crafts, and a safety lecture. Thanks to Dick Martiny and his wife from Region 3 and everyone who helped with set-up, clean-up and food. We had a great emcee and tons of help from many people. Hope to see you all next year!

April Rally at Barnyard RV Park

We had a great turnout for the first camping rally of the 2011 season. We had more units come than planned for, so we even used their overflow parking! We enjoyed a wonderful BBQ meal prepared by Bill.  We had wonderful weather and had fun shopping f0r bargains at the flea market adjoining the campground. Plans are set for a repeat next year.
