ROAD RUNNERS RV CLUB                            Ellen Say, President, 941-505-9605,

                                             "When did you get back to Punta Gorda?" "Where did you travel to this
                                             summer?" Road Runners filled the auditorium with chatter at the October
                                             meeting as we learned about each other’s travels and adventures over the
                                             summer. Now we are ready for some fun trips exploring Florida.

                                             Unfortunately our first scheduled trip to the Keys and Fantasy Fest on Key West
                                             had to be cancelled. Curry Hammock State Park (our destination) and many
                                             other parks remain closed because of Hurricane Irma. After the hurricane nearly
                                             140 Florida State Parks were closed. Missouri and Virginia sent volunteers to
                                             help Florida State Park employees clean up and return the parks to their usual
                                             pristine condition. You can learn which parks are still closed by looking at the
                                             storm information page on the Florida State Park website.

         The Road Runner ladies have a
         lunch on the fourth Wednesday of
         each month. In October the ladies
         enjoyed lunch at Carmelo's Italian
         Ristorante in Punta Gorda. No
         luncheon is scheduled for

         Several activities are planned for
         November. The monthly meeting on
         November 9 will feature a speaker
         from the Punta Gorda Fire
         Department who will talk about the
         services they offer, including the
         medical Red Dot program. On
         November 16 we will enjoy Dinner
         and Darts, hosted by Sharon and Art
         Schott, at the Ice House Pub,

         Over Thanksgiving weekend, Nov.
         22 to 26, some of the Road Runners
         will be traveling to Upriver RV
         Resort, Ft. Myers. This trip is hosted
         by Marian and Richard Delfs. We will
         share a delicious Thanksgiving
         dinner with other RVers in the park.
         We also plan to visit some of the
         interesting locations in the area.

         If you would like to know more about
         RVing, join us at one of our monthly
         meetings scheduled for the second
         Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at
         the PGI Civic Association building.
