Messages from the President, June 26, 2017

June is here and finally we are getting some warmer weather in the Northeast while the West is having record breaking heat.  Now that schools are out the grandkids are clamoring to go camping in our Bigfoot.  All of the campgrounds near here are open and despite the cool damp weather of early June have been busy with campers. 

Summer is a great time to see the country in your Bigfoot and I hope that you do just that.  I also hope that your end of summer plans include joining us at the Blackwell Island RV Park in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho from September 10th  to the 15th for our annual Business Meeting and Rally.   While we have past the first discount period for the Rally Registration, you can still save by registering and paying by July 31st.  Check the website under BOCI RALLIES for the Rally Registration form for the details and to review the preliminary schedule.  The Rally Committee is working hard to ensure that this Rally is the best one yet.  Also, don’t forget to get your special Raffle tickets for the Quilt, (handmade by our members) and tickets for a chance to attend the 2018 Rally for free.  You do not have to attend the Rally in order to win either Raffle.  

At the Rally this year we will be electing two members to your Board of Directors.  If you are interested in serving on the Board please read the Clubs Bylaws on the website and contact Norm Rector at for additional information.

From what I have been told, the mini-rally in Barkerville, BC scheduled for June 29th thru July 2nd has filled up.  Many of the attendees will have recently returned from a Bigfoot caravan to Alaska; several will be attending their first Bigfoot mini-rally.  Check the website for information on holding a mini-rally near you; it is a great way to meet local Bigfooter’s.

I hope to see you at the Rally at the Blackwell Island RV Park in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.  Enjoy the summer and your Bigfoot!
