That’s a North Dakota Airstreamer in the North Dakota Badlands – Congratulations and a Big THANK YOU goes out to Ryan from Dickinson for snagging the cover of the February issue of the Blue Beret. Keeping North Dakota on the map!
Your unit and region officers have been hard at work planning out activities to participate in in the upcoming rally season. The Region 7 Rally has just been announced – it will be in the Baraboo – Wisconsin Dells area Aug 12 – 16. More details will be coming soon. Past Region 7 President Linda Agre will be leading a caravan to the International Rally in Farmington, NM, leaving from the Airstream Park in Clear Lake MN on June 16, or from Worthington, MN June 17th. North Dakota’s first activity of the year will be the Spring Luncheon in Valley City, weather permitting BYOA and make a weekend of it – more details to follow on that one as well.
Spring has finally arrived on the Prairie and we are ready to head out for adventure! The June issue of Prairie Rose Newsletter – June 2014 is now ready for viewing or download. In this issue, you will find information on the upcoming Medora Buddy Rally June 12-15 and the Rally Schedule. Westward Ho!
Well, isn’t Windows 8 ever so much FUN! GRrrrrrrr! I have finally been able (I think) to get this new computer set up far enough to get a piece of paper out of the printer, and now I aspire to have an actual post onto our website, without spending a half day and having to go outside to calm down in the middle of the process.
In this issue of the Prairie Rose Newsletter April-May 2014 you will find details on the upcoming schedule for May and June. Next week kicks off the Rally Season in Casselton for the Spring Luncheon and meeting. Thereafter, it will adjourn to a good old fashion campout and so well-needed relaxation. To view or download the newsletter, click the above link. Hope to see you in Casselton!
Check out the updates to the Monument of Peace Project. The Special Committee has been working hard, making sure the project is moving forward, even while Ol’ Man Winter and Mother Nature duke it out up north here. Spring is coming!
The November-December issue of the ND 07-0145 Newsletter 12-13 is available for viewing or download. In it, you will find the 2014 Unit Schedule of Events. Make sure to work these dates into your adventures for new year.
While the calendar may not agree, Ol’ Man Winter did a pre-screening on South and North Dakota already, and snowballs are threatening the area again. Time to make sure the Airstream is ready for cold temps by either plugging it in and keeping it heated, or running that pink stuff through all its veins. While the camping season is pretty much wrapped up for us on the outside, new President Allan is working hard on next year’s schedule, and several members have stepped up to the plate to help host the 2014 rallies. The 2014 Rally Schedule will be posted soon – make sure you let Alln know if there are any special activities you might be interested in or where you think you might be able to help out through the year.
Just received word that we have some new members in the North Dakota Peace Garden Unit! Douglas and Marie Jensen are from Aberdeen, South Dakota and it look like they now have the honors of having the oldest Airstream in the Unit, a 22-foot trailer born in 1957! We are all looking forward to meeting you, and to meeting your Vintage Airstream. Welcome to the friendliest unit in WBCCI!
For those planning on attending the Region 7 Tall Ships Rally in Duluth, Minnesota: Anyone that would like to purchase tickets for the opportunity to sail on Lake Superior aboard the Privateer Lynz, S/V Denis Sullivan, or the Schooner Hindu needs to do so starting April 1st. Each of these three vessels will sail several times daily, beginning Friday, July 26. It will not only provide an educational glimpse into daily life aboard a tall ship, but also the grandeur of experiencing Lake Superior under sail. The cost for these tickets is $95.00 per person AND IS NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR RALLY FEE. These tickets will sell out, so don’t delay if this is on your Bucket List.
If you are planning on attending the Region 7 Tall Ships Rally, the date of the Parade of the Tall Ships is the 25th of July. Vista Fleet Cruise Lines needs a firm head count by June 25, 2013, therefore rally fees need to be received by our Region Treasurer, Carolyn Grandstrand no later than June 24, 1013. This information has been updated on the Region 7 website and in the April issue of the Blue Beret. Please don’t wait to make reservations, as we are filling up quickly. Also remember that your Region Officers are going to be at the International Rally in Huron, so send in your reservations as soon as possible. Thank you. Linda Agre, Region 7 President
