Southern Route Coordinator News – June 2020 Part 1

One of our great U.S. Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, said “Anything worth having is worth waiting for”.   I am sure he was talking about RFTW XXXII.  I guess he could have just asked, “Is it May yet?”. 

The good news is, as Run For The Wall goes, it’s Reunion Season.  Time to get the ride plans together, make reservations and RIDE.  Details can be found on the Forum and in the RC Newsletters.  This year we have: the Tour of Tennessee; Angel Fire in New Mexico and the TX Reunion in Kerrville, TX.   Reunions are open ALL riders, Past, Present and Future.

A great many of you were able to get some riding in and took on the R.F.T.W. Quest 2020. Some took the additional challenge of the H.O.P.E. Quest.  One couple Chris and Kristin Andrews knocked it out of the park, by creating and completing their own POW*MIA Challenge.  Outstanding, especially since they would have been FNGs in 2020.  I congratulate all who have, and encourage all who will take up the Quest.  Because many of you are still restricted by local restrictions, I have extended the deadline to July 5, 2020. 

We would love to see your pictures on the Photo Board. In case you forgot here is how you do that:

Go to the RFTW.us website

Select a Virtual Route

Click on RFTW Quest 2020

Scroll down to BIO Submissions section

Fill in the information and select your picture file and Submit

Your pictures will eventually show on the Photo Board

We still have a lot of work to do and some new challenges ahead in preparing for RFTW XXXII 2021. This “extra” time has allowed us to take an in depth look at every stop along the way and see what we might do to improve the Southern Route experience.   Soon I will announce a few open positions on our support team, so if you are interested in volunteering, watch for that.
