Rally - September 26, 2017
The Red Bluff Fall Roundup held at the Durango RV Resort in Red
Bluff, CA and hosted by Janet Ream, Debbie Smith, Bobbi & Dave Peterson and
Sheryl & Tom Costa was a huge success. The country is extremely beautiful and
filled with endless things to do, see and explore. One of the highlights of the
rally was we were able, almost at our leisure, to explore the fantastic real log
cabin home of Janet and Debbie. It's located 9.5 miles east of Redding in a
remote but beautiful little town. In addition to this adventure, a number of
Romers went to the Lake Shasta Caverns. 28 coaches and 58 people attended.
Don & Nancy Baumgart have sold their motor coach so they "hoteled" it for the

TAYLOR - New Newsletter Editor
- December 14, 2010
As I mentioned below, our new
Editor in Chief of the
Monaco Romers News e-Newsletter is Marsha Taylor, a Monaco Romers
member since January 2005. Marsha and her husband Dave bought their first Monaco
motor home in September 2003. After attending a Monaco "Come Home" Rally in
Salem and meeting several Monaco Romers they decided to join the club. They
found out how much fun the Monaco rallies were and have attended many rallies
over the last number of years.
Marsha enjoys working and playing on the computer and
thoroughly enjoys the art of photography. These combined skills have led her to
produce various newsletters for other clubs that she has been involved with.
When asked about why she agreed to become the Monaco Romers new Editor in Chief,
she commented "After belonging to a club for over 5 years, it was time to give
back in a capacity that allows me to be more involved by staying up-to-date with
club news while meeting more of the members when attending the rallies." She
also said " [I'm] looking forward to fun rallies in the future!"
