The Bucket List
seems to be the
p o p u l a r t e r m
these days for
things one wants
to do before the
end of ones life.
Well one of the
things that has
b e e n o n m y
Bucket List for
some time is to spend a year or two
wandering around the country in a motor
home and I have decided to check that off
my list. So I am in the process of moving
out of my house and into the motor home.
Once more it is back to packing everything
up so it can go into storage one again. Less
is going into storage this time and the
number of cars is being reduced (see ads).
Currently I plan to continue doing the news
letter but everything will be done via the
internet. If we find that this does not work
or is not beneficial to the club a change will
then be made.
Along that same line a quick look at the
adjacent column shows thirteen club
positions but only nine people. These
names and perhaps another ten or so have
been filling these positions for some years
as well as being the key folks in bring about
two very successful national events in less
than ten years. While hard to believe,
another year is almost gone an the VP is
going to be looking for some new
volunteers to fill club positions. If you have
never done this or it has been a while since
holding a club position please give it some
consideration - - at least a few of us are
getting really really old and tired.
Till next month - - - Bob
