The Southeast Chapter has had a very busy winter with four events in just three months! We are currently working on our rally schedule a year in advance, and are making a few adjustments- we always welcome hearing from you!
Our next event is the Spring Rally at St. Augustine. This rally sold out in January with over thirty coaches registered. This is a new location for Southeast and we are looking forward to a “destination” rally held at a highly rated RV Park, the closest campground to downtown St. Augustine.
There are well over twenty Southeast coaches registered for the ACA National Rally at Spearfish, South Dakota, this rally also sold out in January, but there is a stand by list. Southeast and the Happy Wanderers will have a three-day pre-rally at the same location as the National Rally.
We also have a new rally scheduled in October at Gulf Waters RV Park, in Fort Myers Beach, FL. This is the highest rated premier RV Park in the area and we look forward to a new adventure!
It is disappointing that the November Keys rally had to be cancelled for 2018. There are uncertainties as to the facilities and increased costs that made this rally impossible for successful planning. I hope that a Keys rally will be possible in the future!
Southeast will have our annual Christmas Rally at Sun-N-Fun in Sarasota. The Sun-N-Fun RV Resort is a luxury resort that is widely recognized as one of the premier RV resorts in the world. It is a multiple Mega Park of the Year Award Winning Resort.
Our rally coordinator, Doug Thompson is already working with Lazydays for our 8th Annual Regional Rally at Lazydays. This rally will be a little different in 2019. Based on comments we have received opening night will be more socially oriented (background music only). The rally will also be shortened to three nights with meals each night.
We are going back to the Florida RV Supershow in January 2019. There were 40 SEACA coaches in attendance in January 2018 and it was a lot of fun despite the unseasonable cold. Everyone seemed just fine on the 30A power. New to 2019, there is an agenda posted on www.myamericancoach.com and www.southeastaca.net.
re at Fort Wilderness” at Disneyworld in early February 2018 had twenty-three coaches in attendance. The feedback was very positive, and we have already planned a “Return to the Wilderness” in February 2019.
