Region 12 Updates February 2015

January 2015 Region 12 newsletter

Regions 12 has several pieces of business to address in the 2nd month of 2015
1. Merit Award applications are due from last years Presidents now.  I, as your Region President, have to review, approve and mail them to Florida by the 1st of March. The forms can be found on the website.  It is listed under the title "Unit Planning Guide and Merit Award Application."  You can fill it out and mail it to me or send it by FedEX to:
Robert Stansbury
2615 Oak Ridge Drive
Carson City, Nevada 89703

Don't bother sending it to WBCCI.  They only take them from Region Presidents.  Last year we had Seven units that qualified.  I hope we can do as well this year.

2.  There are still some units that have not submitted their calendar to Eric McHenry, our Region 12 webmaster.  He puts them into a Google Calendar Format.  This allows all our members to know what is going on for the whole year.  Please send your calendar to Eric.  Thanks to the units that already done this.

3.  The Balloon Fiesta is no longer being sponsored by Region 12.  Please direct any inquiries to Region 11.  They can check

4.  The Cali Rally is almost full.  Check the R12 website if your are still interested.

5.  The 2015 Region Rally will be held in Carson City, Nevada on October 6 - 11th, Silver City RV Park, Sponsored by the Sierra Nevada Unit.

6.  The 2016 Region Rally will be held in Hemet, California on October 12 - 16th, Golden Palms RV Park, Sponsored by the El Camino Unit.

7.  We have to publish a ballot soon for the election of R12 Officers.  We still have no candidate for 2nd VP.  The current VP's have to be reelected to move up.  Please let me know of anyone interested in the positions. 

Thanks:  Robert Stansbury, Region 12 President.

Greetings Region 12 Unit Presidents, Webmasters and Newsletter Editors:
This year, Region 12 officers extend a warm welcome to join us for the inaugural Cali Rally to be held near Santa Margarita, California.  Camatta Ranch, nestled in San Luis Obispo County, is comprised of 32,000 acres and is sure to provide a unique, off the grid, drycamp event for all.
Unit presidents, we would like to include a member from each unit to be part of the organizing team and request your assistance in finding an enthusiastic volunteer. Newsletter editors and Webmasters, please help us in getting the event publicized in your upcoming newsletter and websites. The agenda is still a work in progress and awaits a creative team, but we look forward to offering a little bit of something for everyone!
