TUMBLEWEEDS UPDATE for upcoming season

First, thank you to all who attended the Planning meeting. It was a very productive meeting and we enjoyed taking a few minutes to get to know each other. 

We have a couple of new members signup -- Welcome to Tom & Kit Bielawski, Bonnie & Dennis Bowers, Mae Engelhart, and Le & Carla Hult. We are now up to 21 new members and waiting on one more (Ted & Dani Renk). That's a lot of Tumbleweeds! 😊 

Second, my apologies for my tardiness in getting this information out to you. Time just plain got away from me. 

Attached you will find updated files for the Tumbleweeds Boise Good Sam chapter. 
  • Minutes from November 6th Planning meeting
  • Membership roster
  • Camping 2022 schedule
  • Text file to use when sending out emails to all the members
  • Wagon Master Duties

We have two dates available for wagonmasters/hosts for the 2022 season -- April 1-3 and May 13-15. If you are interested in playing wagonmaster, please let me know. You don't need a location just yet -- just a commitment to host the campout. NOTE TO NEWBIES -- all the "seasoned" members will be happy to help you out with your duties as wagonmaster. It's not really hard -- just takes a little bit of time. 

Where can you find campgrounds? A good place is Idaho Campground Review
Sort by region > Southwestern Idaho
Although Sawtooth Mountain and South Central could work too. 

The next campout/meeting will be Saturday, March 12th at noon. Outback Steakhouse on Overland in Boise. 

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions and if you'd like to host a campout. 

Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to some good times next year!
