It's that time of the month again when our newsletter articles are due!
Actually, I’m a couple of days late! Our hot, humid and rainy days continue.
It has become somewhat of a game dodging the rains and beating the heat. Hey,
this Florida and we love it! With September comes the Region “A” Fiesta in
Eufaula, Alabama September 12-13-14 2013. The Region team has prepared a
FUNtastic time for all who attend. Florida is tasked with manning the
Registration and Indoor Game area on Thursday from Noon – 5 PM (Shifts:
Noon-2:30 and 2:30–5) and on Friday from 8 AM until 5 PM (Shifts: 8–10,
10-Noon, Noon-2, 2-5). We need 4 folks for each shift of Registration and 10
folks for each shift of Games. FL1-M was the first to volunteer to help with
Games at the Region “A” rally
even before we asked! They will take the Thursday from Noon – 2:30 shift for games. Thank you! We still need more volunteers. Email us with names, preferred area: Registration or Games, and the preferred shift. We will confirm with you once we check the schedule to see what shifts still need manning.
A new Region “A” Couple of the Year will be chosen in Eufaula as Florida’s very own Dana and Jo Voight will be completing their tenure. Wouldn’t it be great to have Florida’s District Couple of the Year, Donnie and Aimee Peters, be selected as the new Region “A” Couple! Florida can handle a repeat of this great honor! If you are attending the rally, be sure to support our couple on Friday during the selection process! Chapter FL2-A, Florida’s very first chapter, will be holding a party (35th Anniversary) on September 7 in Lantana. They will have FUN and GAMES and FOOD! Everything is FREE and it is Double Point Month. They do ask
that you RSVP by August 24. Contact Cheryl Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-445-1624. Show your support for the first chapter chartered in Florida. I know you will have FUN! Gina and I will be there!
October really gets the “rally” season in full swing. Start planning now!FL1-A, FL1-D, FL2-G, and FL1-H all have FUN events planned in October. Please support your fellow GWRRA FL friends. Also, our Mississippi friends have their District Rally/Convention October 17-19 in Gulfport. Anyone feeling lucky?! Mississippi
knows how to have FUN, too, and would love for you to join them in Gulfport. The District website has the details of these events under the FUN tab!
Don’t forget to start preparing for the January 2014 Chapter Conference. It is very important the Chapter Officers attend this event - January 4 & 5 at the Hampton Inn & Suites, Oldsmar, FL. We start early on Saturday. Plan to arrive Friday if possible. It is a new facility and should be great! We promise to provide as much FUN as possible and still get the “business” of GWRRA covered.
In closing, as always, please feel free to contact us if you have a question or just would like to share ideas with us. We welcome your suggestions and comments.
Ride safe and always Have FUN!!!
See you soon and always remember Rule #1...Have FUN!!!
