Max Hicks wrote that he and Barbara just attended the planning session and to "Please encourage all our members to plan on going to GEAR as this a great venue and a good time should be had by all. I am doing the Trams again this year and am looking for Volunteers. Anyone wishing to drive a Tram (a six passenger golf cart) for a couple of two hour shifts can get that privilege by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org calling me at 757-375-9400."
December2-4 We had thought that this newsletter would include the location for the Christmas rally . Members attending the rally at Fort Monroe agreed to move the location back to American Heritage in Williamsburg for 2011, then to look elsewhere for 2012. Unfortunately, even though we had had tentatively reserved the weekend, another group who is guaranteeing 25 coaches made a reservation, and American Heritage no longer seems interested in us. We would get the smaller room for our activities and the other group gets first choice of the campsites. We still have Holiday Trav L Park in Virginia Beach reserved for the weekend and we're exploring other Williamsburg locations. So, more information will be provided in the next newsletter.
