If you were unable to attend this years convention, you surely missed out! It was a fun time for all in Fabulous Las Vegas! The Presidents Award was given to Steve Forrester, Pappy Fry Award nominees were Region A: Bryan Rensi, Region B: Dave and Liz Hummel, Region C: Tom and Tonya Eaton with the winner being Bryan Rensi, Region B Chairman's Award was given to the Susquehannocks, Region C Chairman's Award was given to Karen Reinhardt and Tonya Eaton, The Connie Benner Award was given to the "Batman Group" for their efforts at the Jeep festival. After the general meeting and the award banquet all had a great time of fellowship sharing laughs and chips at our "Casino Night." It was also voted to move next years convention to a new facility, Comfort Suites, located in DuBois, Pa.
This new hotel was chosen for several reasons such as location, amenities, pricing, staff qualities, and overall hotel quality.
This hotel is newly constructed with beautiful and accommodating rooms, offering amenities such as a fitness center, library, indoor heated pool with slide and Jacuzzi's, free high speed wifi, and a large complimentary breakfast bar. There is a very nice country club on site with a bar and good food for those who would like to stay on site for meals. The country club has a very nice ball room which will serve as our meeting rooms/hospitality room. Pricing is very similar to the Park Inn By Radisson. The location is more central for our members to travel to and relatively easy to get to. The DuBois area features many restaurants and shopping areas close by for additional things to do while attending our weekend convention or for those who like having a larger selection of restaurants to dine at. The executive board meeting will be held here in the spring. For more info on Comfort Suites click Here.
The theme for 2018's convention will be "Retirement Home!" So grab your grandad's slippers and walker. This will be a fun theme! The date for next year is November 9-11, 2018. Additional details will be planned in the spring and posted at a later date.
