Messages from the President, May 22, 2019

Welcome to spring and the start of another great RV travel season. While it may be Spring according to the calendar, I am not so sure.  The weather has once again been wet and cold here in the northeast and snow is still flying in the Midwest.   But like most Bigfoot owners I am optimistic and look forward to another great year on the road in our Bigfoot. I am particularly looking forward to this year’s Annual Business Meeting and Rally to be held at the Diamond Grove RV Park in Spruce Grove, Alberta from September 8th to the 12th.   The Rally registration form was distributed via an eblast and is also available on the website under the BOCI Rallies tab.  In order to get the best price be sure to get your registration form in before May 31, 2019.  Once again Mike Henley and his committee are putting together the plans for a great rally, the Club’s sixteenth Annual Rally.  There will be more specifics on the Rally coming soon.

Speaking of rallies, the mini rallies held in April at the Fidalgo Bay Tulip Festival in Anacortes, Washington was a huge success (and not so mini) with twenty-eight Bigfoot rigs in attendance.  The mini rally held in early May at Angle Fire, New Mexico was also a great success with some members coming there after being at the Anacortes mini rally. Hopefully, we will soon have a mini rally report and some pictures to post on the web site from both mini rallies.  There is also a mini rally planned for June at the Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park Vancouver Island, British Columbia June 17th to 19th.  Our members are truly an active and enjoy getting together with fellow Bigfoot owners.

At this year’s Annual Rally and Business meeting we will elect two members to the Club’s Board of Directors for a two year term.  I urge you to consider serving on the Board or one of the committees that support your Club.

I am looking forward to getting back on the road to go exploring in new places and revisiting old familiar places and friends.   Hope to see you on the road and at the Annual Rally.

Art Dunn – BOCI President
