2018 National Officers Retreat

On August 26-28 the SUP National Officers had a National Officers Retreat. National President-elect Tony Tidwell invited us to stay in two of his lovely vacation homes right on the water of Bear Lake. We had a wonderful time getting to know each other better, for friends both old and new and near and far. We toured the Paris Tabernacle and several historic houses nearby, then we drove to Mountpeliar to tour the Oregon Trail Museum and the Butch Cassidy Bank Robbery Museum. Diamond Jim Davis entertained us with some Cowboy Poetry and Kent Smith gave an intriguing presentation of the Bear Lake area including his own family history who settled there. We had a great Board Meeting where Pioneer Magazine Publisher Bill Tanner gave an inspiring presentation on the development of the Pioneer Magazine in recent years (we will be hearing more about this at the National Encampment in Cedar City next month). Many thanks go to Kathy Tidwell for her hours of excellent work in the kitchen and weeks of scouting out the fun local tours.
