Lori’s Latest News!Royal Coachman Guests;This is the second summer email from the Resort. This communication will be sent through Lori to all email addresses on the data base. We will send you news from Carla’s desk and George’s shop, with the goal of giving you some “off season” insight of the Resort. Occasionally we will include a picture of something of interest. So for the month of June here we go!From Carla’s desk;Well summer is rolling along nicely! The resort is looking very nice, colorful plants are purchased each month and planted in the common arrears’ and around the office. We had a nice Memorial Day weekend with pool entertainment. The July 4th weekend is upon us and will be busy and fun filled. The weather has warmed up nicely, I like the warm weather so it is very comfortable for me. The staff is doing very well and keeping busy. I hope all of you are having a nice summer, staying safe and cool.From George’s shop;Tree cutting/trimming is complete. We started May 29 and made our last cut on June 26th, long month. The maintenance staff is working hard to get everything done and I can’t ask for a better group to work with. We have approximately 125 more truck loads of cut limbs, palm fronds and large tree trunks to pick up. We will then move on to other projects scheduled to be completed before season begins. We feel all of our guests will be happy with the progress and hard work. For all the dog lovers, the dog park now has plenty of sun; all the oak trees have been beautifully manicured. We will soon begin phase 2 in the dog park. I have attached pictures 86 feet above ground of our beautiful resort. Enjoy your summer and I will see you soon!Thank You, Carla Easton & George Shepard

Royal Coachman Resort Senior GamesIn January 2001 former resident Hal Scott started the first RCR Senior Games. He had been active in senior games in Illinois for several years. What started as one person's idea with eleven events over five days has become a multi week effort with 46 events ranging from badminton to washer toss. Participants are separated into four 10-year age groups; 50s, 60s, 70s and 80+ and any participant can register for as many events as they like. The current RCR Senior Games occur each Feb starting with mixed bocce, golf, tennis and horseshoes. The second week is where the vast majority of events occur. We have managed to fit the remaining 42 events into eight days culminating with a bocce ball grand championship game between the men's and women's championship teams. The following day, Sunday, there is a banquet for all participants.We wish to thank all who participated, volunteer or player and look forward to your continued support and participation in the upcoming 2017 RCR Senior Games. As we close in on the time for those Games more information will be made available. The Senior Games are open to any Park Resident or Registered Camper aged 50 Years or more.
