The ” First Nations Rally 2011 ” from August 4TH to 8TH , 2011 in Quebec Canada, organized by the Quebec Unit was as successful as possible. We enjoyed having over 60 trailers in our small town of Rivière-Rouge. It was an event to remember and believe me, we will! One thing to really keep in mind is the friendship we felt during the most important activity, which was the “First Nations’ Day”. A hundred and three people participated and they came back with only good, or should I say excellent comments. We had everything, nice people, nice weather and a sunny and hot day. The only thing we have to deplore is that as chairmen we didn’t have enough time to spend with people, which means we will have to attend other Region Rallies to have time to get to know the people. But what we will remember the most is the wonderful experience it was to organize such an activity. Once again thanks to everyone in the organization who gave us a hand even if some people feel they didn’t do much, without all of you it wouldn’t have been possible.

FLASHBACK – Due to the deadlines we have with our printer, sometimes our Region news is a bit delayed. Not that this is a bad thing since it does give us all a chance to reflect on what is happening within our perspective regions and share news and items of interest with good intentions. Hence our going back in time just a little to review the Region One Rally for 2010. AWSOME! This year’s hosts were the Quebec Canada Unit directed by Jean-Pierre Meilleur and Clémence Lemay. First, a standing ovation for them and all the wonderful volunteers who showed everyone true Canadian hospitality. You may now all be seated. Thank you all for a job well done. From the opening ceremony we all knew we were in for a special time. Guest were treaded to many wonderful meals, live entertainment, a visit from the Rivière-Rouge Mayor, visited a local casino, town tour and a very educational visit with the local Indian Tribe at their sacred site and were served a fine lunch. On behalf of everyone who attended I wish to congratulate the Members of the Quebec Canada Unit for a job well done.

After Saturday’s dinner the New England Unit presented their plans for hosting the Region One Rally in Thornton, New Hampshire and it looks to be another good time for everyone. They have the registration form up on the WBCCI web-site and I know they are looking forward to hearing from you all.

REAL-TIME – As I review the remaining rallies for our region there is still a lot of camping left to do. My personal prediction for our first snow fall this season is November 22 so everyone has plenty of time before needing to winterize their rigs for the coming cold months. Fall in New England is always a magical time and just seems a little bit better when shared with friends. I know that a few of our units are already putting next years rally schedules together and I personally look forward to trying to get together at least once with each unit in our region. Till next time, keep camping, enjoy the adventure and remember to keep me posted on any news or events upcoming or past.
