We are looking at a very busy year for our chapter!  I cannot recall a time when we had a rolling rally, two FMCA Conventions and a multiple stop summer rally all on our agenda!  Please take the time

to review all we have planned.  Our rally calendar on our web site ( ) is much more detailed.  Registration for FMCA’s Convention in Lincoln, Nebraska is now available, registration for our pre-rally will be available in late March!  Mark your calendars August 23-26 ACC Pre-Rally, August 26-29, 2020 – FMCA Convention.

Rolling Rally to Tucson We are just a few weeks from our rolling rally to Tucson, thanks to Jim Graham for his efforts in arranging this multiple stop event.  There are two documents in the “Rallies” section of our web site, one with our schedule and another far more detailed itinerary provided by Jim.  If you are interested in taking part in this, please let us know.

Next stop Tucson!  Registration is available online for March 2020’s FMCA’s 101st International Convention in Tucson, AZ. Our Western Director Willie Morris has put a lot of effort into our Tucson Pre-rally!  We will have wonderful social hours and catered meals.  More good news!  The American Coach Factory Service Center team which travels all year long providing emergency services to attendees of national RV rallies will be at our American Coach Chapter pre-rallies in 2020.  American Coach owners attending these events qualify for on-site rally service.  Information is available on the American Coach Owner’s web site.


Rolling Rally is still on:  ACC Summer Rally Our Eastern Coordinator, Jean Borin and her husband Bruno are to be commended for planning a great summer rally.  There has been a lot of interest in this rolling event and we are near capacity.  Stops include Gettysburg, PA, Marathon, NY and Byron, NY.  Looking forward to this adventure!

Has been cancelled, due to COVID19 – Looking ahead to Lincoln, Nebraska.  This is new news!  FMCA’s 102nd Convention will be held at the Lancaster Event Center, Lincoln Nebraska, August 26-29, 2020.  Our chapter will have our pre-rally from August 23rd till August 26th at the same location as the convention.  Registration for the FMCA Convention is in the February FMCA magazine and is available on line ( )   Our pre rally registration will not be available till the third week in March.
