Updated 2019 Tumbleweeds campout schedule

We had a very nice lunch at Casa Mexico for the pre-season meeting last Saturday. Several folks thought it might be fun to hold another meeting there. No lunch to provide, no mess to clean up. We missed those of you who were unable to attend. (FYI: Rosemary mentioned in an email that she and Roy ran into Anna and Floyd Hope at the Sportsman Show. They are in Idaho City at the moment and doing well.)

Dennis & Marcia, Janet & Tino, Jim McDonnell (Beccie was home with the crud going around), Jim & I enjoyed lunch with Jack & Kathy Haynes from the Military Chapter. Jack showed off the new flags used at the Idaho Good Sam meetings. They are beautiful -- one for the US, one for Idaho, one for each of the military branches, and one for MIA. Thanks, Jack. We really appreciate you joining us. We hope you can join us at one of our campouts soon. 

Jim & Beccie asked if we could move the Castle Rock campout to July 26-28. They will be out of town the weekend of July 19th so we agreed to move the campout back a week. Also, Cathie & Mike will be joining us at this campout. They just bought a new side by side and say the trails at Castle Rock are loads of fun. So for those of you with ATVs/UTVs -- come and enjoy! 

I have updated the campout schedule and attached a copy. I have also included the site number for the wagonmasters so you reserve a site close to the them. Be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible! Campsites are going fast for all campgrounds. 

Since Mark & Emma are unable to host the campout at Bully Creek on April 26-28, Jim & I will be taking over. We'll have appetizers on Friday night and dinner at the Starlite Cafe in Vale. I have attached a pic of the campground so you can decide which site you want. Jim & I are in site #10. 

Marcia will be sending out info shortly about the upcoming campout at Snake River RV Park. Looking forward to seeing you all there. 

Travel safe,
Rita 😎

Let the good times begin!!!!

Daylight Savings Time starts -- March 10th -- only 1 day!
Pre-season Get Together -- March 16th -- only 7 days!!
Spring Begins -- March 20th -- only 11 days!
First Tumbleweeds campout -- April  5-7 -- only 27 days!!!!!!

Is it obvious I'm counting days???!!!! 😎

The pre-season get together meeting will be held at Casa Mexico, 10332 W Fairview Avs, Boise at noon on Saturday, March 16th. Please RSVP so we can have a count as to who will be attending. 

Casa Mexico is in the shopping center on the northeast corner of the intersection of W. Fairview Avenue and N. Five Mile Road, next to Harbor Freight Tools. It's inside the building. 

Also, we have company coming! 😀  President Jack Haynes and his lovely wife Kathy from the ID Good Sam Military State Wide Chapter and the Time To Travel chapter will be joining us. They will be showing the new flags that were recently purchased for the state to chapter meetings of Good Sam chapters in the Boise/ southern Idaho area so that they can be seen prior to the Samboree in Lewiston in June. It will be fun to see flags since most of us can't be at the Samboree in June. 

The first campout is at Snake River RV Park, hosted by Marcia and Dennis. You'll need to contact the RV park if you haven't made your reservations yet. Marcia, since you are now retired and have time, we're putting you in charge of making sure we have lots of sunshine that weekend!!!! 😂

I have attached the camping schedule for this year in case you can't find the latest and greatest version. If you see changes that need to be made, please let me know. 

I'm looking forward to getting the 2019 Season underway!

Again, please let me know if you are attending pre-season get together. 

Safe travels,
Rita
