The Shawnee rally was a great experience for all who attended. We now focus our efforts on the 2018 rally to be put on by the board. Our first choice was the Pueblo, Colorado fairgrounds but the Fords and Sotelos paid that venue a visit and it was found wanting to say the least. So now we our seeking another venue so that the next national rally will be a most memorable one.  The Southwest chapter has drawn the responsibility of parking for that rally.

I encourage all Southwest chapter members to make the effort to attend the 2018 national rally.  Our chapter’s representation at the Shawnee rally was not what we would have liked.  Hopefully we can improve on that next year.

Stella and I are in Colorado enjoying the mild summer weather, although we have had plenty of rain this week.  It’s nice to have a break from the hot and humid weather we encountered travelling through the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma.  It made us appreciate the dry heat of Phoenix.

Have a great and safe rest of the summer and the rest of the year. We hope to see you all very soon.

Fred and Stella
