Sweet Times to Sugarcreek Region One CaravanRegion One is heading to Ohio to attend the 50th Swiss Festival Special Event Rally in Sugarcreek, OH and you are invited to join the caravan. The caravan will rendezvous at the Danbury, CT (eastbound camping rest area) on September 14, 2012 to start the adventure.

There are 7 days of easy driving planned along the way. The caravan has been arranged so you won’t feel like you have been on the road pushing for that destination way off in the distance. Experience no time-consuming registrations or paying out of pocket at the campgrounds; it has all been done for you.

Caravanning is all about friends traveling together and enjoying each other’s company, so the schedule has been worked out where our campfires, ice cream socials, dinners and happy hours take place just when you want them; we have not encroached on downtime so you can relax or be as busy as you want to be. Our drives are reasonable in length and will not be considered a chore on driving days. Hooking up and traveling with fellow caravanners will be easy because we have even arranged “work” for everyone to take part in. Providing some responsibility for caravanners is just part of the game of getting member’s schedules together, thus traveling and having fun with someone you might not know quite as well as another.

Region One News – June 2012

As I am sitting here putting thoughts together for this, the June issue, it is actually April, or what I like to refer to as BBT (Blue Beret Time). As many of you know we need to put together our monthly regional news two months prior to it’s actual publication. Now I am not complaining because I actually find it not only fun but a very creative challenge. On occasion I do pull out my crystal ball to help me see the future so that this column is presented in a timely fashion, other times I just sort of make things up as I move along. In BBT many of us are getting our final plans together for traveling out to Sedalia while others are getting ready for something closer to home. But the great news is that we are all camping here in Region One. As mentioned in the past, there is a vast and varied schedule in our region of some really great rallies.

The Region One 2012 Rally is well into the finished planning stage and with the central location of Thornton New Hampshire, the drive will be moderate for most members. With fuel prices as they are, this location is very comforting not to mention a very historic location once being an Airstream Park. Currently there are many exciting and educational seminars and demonstrations planned along with the WBCCI Regional Bocce Championships. Continue to check for updates of activities on the Region One website.

Just a quick reminder to all the unit presidents, please be sure to get your entries lined up and presented at International. There are a lot of Merit Awards to be had and I am proud to report that our region has done quite well over the years in bringing home these awards.
