Monaco’s ‘Western Family Round-Up’ 2007

“Western Family Round-Up””

The Monaco ‘Western Family Round-Up” theme this fall was ‘DISCOVER THE OREGON TRAIL.’ Attending, were: Ed & Jeanette Block Doug & Vera Clark Ken & Judy Schindler Ben Paschall Penny Braden Lou & Eileen Eddy Fred & Marilyn Rose Frank Kummerfeldt & Lorraine Gabel

Serving on Chuck Souter’s posse of SHERIFFS was a fine volunteer experience for Ken & Judy, Ed & Jeanette and Lou & Eileen, who oversaw dining hall seating and general order for the evening meal & entertainment. Official hat, vest & badge were provided! As usual, all activities were well organized and a lot of fun.

Teddy Eddy looked smart for the pet parade in his Dog Pound Athletic Club outfit! Jeanette & Penny enjoyed craft projects and Eileen proudly completed the Ladies Driving class. Monaco products & vendor seminars, various classes & shopping kept everyone busy and an ice cream social & gift giveaway, keg party, wine & cheese tasting, and evening happy hours gave all plenty of opportunity to tour the many tempting display coaches! No surprise quite a few sold.

Many of us took advantage of the free services of Monaco/Safari techs to fix a problem or two on our coaches. A Safari Adventures camera crew cornered Ed & Jeanette for a happy Trek owners photo wearing Safari shirts. Who knows where that photo will wind up! Catered meals were yummy and entertainment great. Music performed by The Marlins (four brothers entertaining nationwide for 25 years) had us clapping & couples dancing, as did the wonderful performance & patriotic tunes of Lee Greenwood and his band. We’ll remember the occasionally gross, but clean humor of Dick Hardwick. Additional members joined the group for the NWTFC’s membership meeting following the rally.
