Default Mini Rally

Would anyone be interested in attending a mini rally at Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville, TX? I was just thinking that it would be fun to get together and talk "Newell". And it would give us an opportunity to connect faces with the names. I for one would really like to meet you guys. So, what do you say?

Great Mike, Karen and I look forward to meeting you and your wife. What do you think about this coming spring? The blue bonnets are beautiful in the spring and the temperatures are delightful - cool at night and sunny during the days.

I have a friend in Carencro, LA who is considering the rally also. So it looks like we have the beginning of a mini rally!

Tuga,

Most definitely we would love to meet in Kerrville. And if you can get your "friend" in Carencro to come, he can see his old coach.

Thank you so much for setting this up.

Since we have kids in school, let me consult with my social director for possible dates that would work best for us.

Michael,

It is starting to look pretty good! Somebody suggest some dates in April. I'm thinking about 4 days more or less; that way the guys who drive long distances (Michael & Georgia) can justify the trip a little better.

Richard,

I didn't know that you knew Arnold. He's a great guy, I've been knowing him for years. He was responsible for me buying my first Newell. Dave Prince recommended that I contact him since he lived so close to me. I drove to his house; he offered to let me drive his 1985 Newell, and I was hooked.

April would work for us as we will be travelling to Tyler, TX for a family wedding in April, also, and we were talking about making it a longer trip in the Newell! I'm checking with my wife on the date of the wedding, so we can attend the mini-rally. I'll post that date later today when she gets home and can confirm the date of the wedding.

OK...the family wedding in Tyler is April 18 (Saturday), and we will probably be in that area a day before and after that, so if you can set the dates for the rally before, or after that it will work for us!

Tuga,

I bought my coach from Arnold. His lovely bride fed me gumbo, and he provided cold refreshments, and we had a deal :-)

He also told me the story of you coming to his house to drive a Newell.
