We did have a snow pile-up on September 20 and had to cancel our planned campout; September and October did not have good camping weather, so we will look forward to next spring. Active Manitoba members and retired members met in October for brunch – great visiting and much reminiscing.
Manitoba Explorers plan to have a lunch in Winnipeg in the spring, probably April, for active and retired members, as well as new members and/or guests who would like to meet our group. If you are interested, phone Wayne Smith at (204) 222-7393

NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR
Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter
By George Joseph
A very successful fall rally/campout took place at the Terra Nova National Park on the weekend of September 14–15. Although the weather was quite chilly, the planned activities – including the regular horseshoe and ring toss events, as well as a wonderful “baseball” game (in which the ladies soundly trounced the men) – ran off very smoothly.
The weekend also included our Annual Meeting, and the following officers and directors were elected for 2019:
President: Una Joseph; Vice President: Vi Parsons; Immediate Past President: Dave Lewis;
Secretary: George Joseph; Treasurer: Walter Butler; Directors: Wayne Pennell, Charlotte
Morgan, Rona Holloway.
President Una extends her very best wishes to all for a wonderful RVing season in 2019.
The activities planned for 2019 so far are:
Annual Pre-season Luncheon Meeting: mid-May, time and place TBA.
June Rally at H W Duffett Shriners RV Park, Eastport: June 21–23 weekend, details to follow from Wagon Masters Wayne and Vicki Pennell.
