Region 5 Annual Dinner February 14 at the Florida State Rally
The Region 5 Annual Dinner will be held on Thursday, February 14, 2013. The place is the same, but the name is changed. It is now called Der Dutchman Restaurant and last year it was called Troyer’s Dutch Heritage. Last year was our first year there. All the comments I received were positive. You could partake of the buffet or you could chose something from the menu. I did not hear a complaint about the food – all said it was delicious. How can you go wrong! We will gather around 4:30 p.m. for a meet and greet time. We will start the dinner at 5:00 p.m. You will receive a check for what you choose and pay at the front register. For those of you who are attending the Florida State Rally, you will have plenty of time to make it back to the fairgrounds for the evening entertainment.
No tickets or commitment is required. Just show up and enjoy a great meal with your friends from Region 5. We hope to have a larger group this year, since the dinner was very popular last year. So hope to see all you snowbirds at our dinner.

Region 5 Annual Computer Rally on September 8-10 at General Butler State Park, Carrollton Kentucky
I am looking forward to this. Our location will be unique. The rally will be held in one of the large cabins in the General Butler State Park. We will have WiFi and plenty of new topics as well as computer basics. The cabin has a kitchen, so yes there will be the famous hot breakfasts (thanks to Bob Green and his kitchen crew).
Region 5 Annual Region Rally ” Unbridled Spirit” on September 11-15 at General Butler State Park, Carrollton Kentucky
If you have never been to General Butler State Park, you are in for a treat. The campground is wonderful. Lots of things to do in the park, as well as our special rally activities. There is a change – the park is allowing us to book your camping through our Region Treasurer, Ron Gordy. So we will have our normal coupon to send in for registration. This park has a gourmet chef who will be in charge of our catered meals. We will have a buffet breakfast, a lunch cook out, and two evening meals. Maybe we should change our motto to “Food, Fun, Fellowship and Adventure”. A special thank you goes out to Larry and Kathy Spaulding (Kentucky Unit) for taking the lead in planning some terrific tours, special entertainment and guest speakers. More information on what we have planned will be provided in the near future.

Don and Lana Russel of Noblesville (#12356), welcome to our CIU family!
Some of our members first met new Airstream owners Don and Lana at the Vintage Open House at DuQuoin. We invited them to join our Top of Indiana Caravan and they accepted. Apparently they had a good time, because they joined our unit at the spring luncheon.
Don and Lana have progressed thorough the camping seasons in the typical manner: tent, pop-up trailer. Lana’s annual childhood family vacations were in a pop-up and Don grew up in a farming family, so they were not able to get away to experience a family vacation. Don and Lana honeymooned camping out west for 3 weeks in her family’s pop-up. Stops included Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, LA, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, San Francisco, Rocky Mountains, and Sequoia National Park. Don owns an IT Consulting Company and Lana teaches 6th grade Language Arts in Westfield. They have two children. Ben is an energy auditor in Bloomington and has one son, Andrew. Amanda and her husband, Mike, live in Portland, OR and are both employed in the IT market. Don is actively involved in the Westfield Lions Club and Lana enjoys reading, sewing, quilting, and anything in or around water.
