Region 7 Blue Beret for March

The IBT Rally in Casa Grande, AZ has been completed. Barbara Vaughn, the Region 11 president, and her crew did a great job. We were entertained and fed well at a very reasonable cost. I will again lend my voice to attending this rally. It is a good value and gives you easy access to the decision makers for the club. Next year the IBT rally will be in Sarasota FL.

We also conducted the club business with a number of meetings. There were over 35 motions on the table to be addressed. About half of them were for unit name or flag changes to include the word Airstream. These were all put on hold as Airstream is reviewing the licensing agreements for the use of their name. We hope to address these requests in Escanaba, MI. There were a number of motions brought forward that brought the language and definitions in the constitution and by-laws into agreement, There was a motion to allow units to design their own badges. The badges are required to have some specific information on them. The motion passed to allow units to use these badges at the unit level. When attending a region or international event the standard club badge needs to be worn also.

The days have been getting longer. The RV shows have been happening The spring social events are taking place. The camping season is drawing near. Get out there and attend a social event. Sign up for a rally. Better yet, offer to host a rally. Those unit presidents don’t have to do it all. Give them a hand.


There will be a Region 7 breakfast at the International Rally. Get your tickets at the registration area.

As Always,

Travel Safe.

Pete Yanke, Region 7 President
