Why do you renew YOUR SOTF membership each year?
A current member recently posed this question on Sister’s on the fly Members’ Facebook page on the eve of renewing her annual membership ($70 annual dues) and the answers were very insightful. Here are some of those-
Carol M– I love meeting new sisters and I love my friends I’ve met before. I love how supportive this group of women are and how warm and welcome I feel when I’m with them. I hope you can experience the same.
Pat D– I saw an article in a magazine years ago about SOTF and thought “how cool is that?” I put it in the back corner of my mind, but never forgot. I was talking to a friend one say about getting a little trailer, and she started sending me all kinds of pictures. Then, I met a gal at a craft show and we started talking about trailers and both ended up joining and have consecutive Sister numbers! I had bought a beat up trailer and had started working on it before I joined. I found out about an event in McKinney, and Tammie, the hostess convinced me to come, even though I was’t finished with it. Before the McKinney event, there was a sister event in Fort Worth at the Cowgirl Museum. I went over on the Friday when they had a public event and realized I had found my “tribe.” I met Tammie face to face that night, and she nearly squeezed all the air out of my lungs. Joining SOTF is the most empowering thing I have ever done. I LOVE towing my trailer. It is one of those “happy places.”
Ann F– I love meeting all the sisters and enjoy time with woman that are so nice and welcoming. It is fun to travel to places you wouldn’t get to without this organization.
Susan B– If it weren’t for SOTF I’d never have herded cattle on a Wyoming ranch, swam with the Manatees in FL, wandered Custer State Park again, kayaked Lake Superior or been going to New England. I feel sisters support and encouragement in everything I do.
Julie B- Adventures, getting me back to my home state of CA… I wouldn’t be going back without my sister trips. Wouldn’t be a sister if I didn’t do trips. You can find lots of groups on Meetup for lunch and movies but this group is for the travel/camping.
Bette P– I’ve camped since I was a kid, love to fish (hubs doesn’t) and I use to own and show horses (urban cowgirl) and I’m a little crazy. When I saw a segment on Travel Channel years ago and knew someday I’d be a Sister. Joined last month Sister #10371?. Presently restoring my little trailer and can’t wait for my first event.
Kristin M– I’m Sister #29. Oh, the stories I have and the fun… Oh my. The friends I’ve made….priceless.
Kathy W– Just one reason….. The sisters I’ve met are amazing. I would have never met them without SOTF.
Nancy E– I enjoy the friendships I have made, the memories. I wouldn’t have met these women had it not been for SOTF! SO looking forward to meeting and having fun with many more! To me, its well worth the money!
Lugene W– SOTF is made up of some of the most kind-hearted, vibrant, FUN, brilliant, talented, welcoming gals in the world. Nuff said! #3333.
Vicki B- The last 6 or so years of my life, I’ve gone through major life changes. 1) Major surgery with the potential for cancer, but thankfully, no cancer 2) Move away from my *peeps* & support system 3) Daughter off the rails 4) Loss of Mom and Dad 5) Cleaning & packing up parents’ & childhood home. About halfway through all this, I joined SOTF and have so much enjoyed, needed and am thankful for the support, friendship and simple hugs I’ve gotten.
Kris B– Omg….where do I start??? Life changing, fun, challenging, amazing, one of the best things I have ever done for myself and SOTF has brought some of the most amazing people into my life….and did I say FUN? It has brought me laughter, tears, amazement and joy….. Many of my friends and family live through my eyes and adventures…SOTF is a gift to myself.
JoAnn S- So I don’t have to travel alone. My husband doesn’t like to travel so I probably won’t go without my sister’s. And oh the places I’ve seen!!!
Becki F– I’ve met some of my closest friends in this group. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. As women, everything is our responsibility. Trips with the girls become my time to take care of me. Unwind, laugh, cut up, do nothing, do something, whatever I feel like. These ladies are my tribe and I’ll autorenew until I die.
Ginny McK– I lost my husband five years ago. The Sisters showed me HE died, I did not. I love the sense of community SOTF provides!
Kathy C– Sister support
