G.E.A.R. 2023 – we need your help

We need your help in finding Exhibitors, Seminar Presenters and Vendors for our October 2023 event. Please take a moment to look over this document and print out a copy (or several) to keep in your RV. When you go to Perry in March to attend the FMCA National Convention, hand a couple out to vendors, exhibitors and seminar speakers that you would like to see at our Great Eastern Area Rally. You may know of others who might not be at Perry for one reason or another, or don’t even realize that there are FMCA Area Rallies where they could vend, exhibit or present. With your help, this October could be the GREATEST Eastern Area Rally:

Eastern Frustrated Maestros Sharps & Flats October 2022 Newsletter

I just figured out how to embed a fanfare on this page to celebrate a first – the first on-line (here, at least) digital copy of an Eastern Sharps & Flats newsletter.


Chapter President Bruce Taylor shared this newsletter with me this afternoon after we were introduced to each other during an Eastern Area Zoom meeting.  This colorful newsletter is filled with news and photos – check out the Santa on page 5.  He’s the real deal (I should know)!  Make a note of their newest members so you can personally welcome them at your next rally.

I hop you enjoy this newsletter as much as I did.

By the way – The Santa is Nick Hefner.   He is saxophone player extraordinaire and a graduate of Santa School.  He is also the President of the Sea Sharps Chapter of the Maestros.
