This article is coming from Southern California where the weather is sunny and warm. The area is where snow birds from the north congregate to enjoy the amenities provided by several RV resorts and the pleasant day time temperatures but it does get cold at night in the desert. My report is based on information provided to me by “stay at home” folks in Salem. The February RV club meeting was conducted by the new officers for 2018 and was attended by 17 or so members. The usual business reports were made and the 2018 camping and event schedule was distributed. For those of you who were not at the meeting the camp outs are listed for your planning use. May 21-24 Sutherlin, June 11-14 Tillamook, July 12-15 NW Elks Rally at Hood River Fairgrounds, August 20-24 Elkton, September 17-21 Wapiti park near Lincoln City, October at Florence, dates to be determined. There is no camp out planned for the month of April due to a lack of hosts to make the arrangements so if you care to plan for an outing step up and let the club officers get it into the schedule.
