Region 5 Rally Brandenburg, KY Sept. 16-20, 2009

Five N. Illinois units attended the 34th Region 5 Rally at Hobo Haven. Wayne Kortum stood in for our President. Jim and Bobbi Matkovich ran the Hobby Show/Swap & Sell. Wayne also supervised Tables & Chairs. Bob Koch acted as the coordinator. Anita Koch and Lillian Kortum ran the Door Prizes. Everyone (including Ron and Mary Dahlberg) helped distributing gifts. Bonnie Nester attended. She still continues to take parliamentary classes.

We went to a Civil War site at Corydon, IN (the only skirmish above the Mason-Dixon line). We had a chicken dinner buffet at the Ohio Overlook Restaurant. Following dinner, we went to the Scout Mountain Winery for some wine tasting. We stopped at The Red Barn in Corydon to do some “antiquing” on the way home.

The Southern Illinois Unit has recruited 4 new members from  AirForums  Bobbi Matkovich was 1st place winner at Joker. The entertainment was 4 star quality – all 3 nights : Blue Grass 101; Jim Roberts, Humorist, and the Juggernauts.

Tom and Norma Collier (incoming International president) invited us to “Explore and Discover” at the 2010 International Rally in Gillette, Wyoming.  Region 5 President for next year, Louise Humble and her husband Jerry invited us to attend the 2010 Silver Bullet Shootout in Du Quoin, IL next September 15-19th. A good time was had by all 70 units attending. Written by Anita Koch
