I hope you are looking forward to your adventurous summer travels!

There is exciting news in the Southeast chapter!  Our webmaster and treasurer Keith Landers has updated our website (www.southeastaca.net).  It is now possible to join Southeast, renew annual memberships and register for southeast rallies, using a credit card if desired. Mailing in membership and registrations forms remains available but since this update came online in early March, most transactions have been completed using our secure on-line program.

We are looking forward to the “Shawnee Jamboree” the American Coach Association’s one and only national rally in 2017!  Southeast will be well represented and I hope to see you there!  Our rally coordinator, Doug Thompson has been working on the pre-rally agenda and I am sure that will be a wonderful time!

The American Coach Service team will be in Shawnee, I encourage you to take advantage of their services!  You can register for rally service here:  http://www.americancoach.com/rally-service-request

A reminder that the annual “Return to the Keys” rally is being hosted by the Northeast Chapter this year.  The Keys rally will have a similar format as past years, register and be eligible for up to four early (pre-rally) days and four (post-rally) days at a remarkable rally rate.

The annual December Rally at Sun N Fun Sarasota is already taking shape.  Our hosts for 2017 will be Terry & Belinda Moorefield, Wendy Gaynor and Dave & Ann Laudick.  The registration for this rally is available on the southeast web site.

We are already receiving registrations for the 2018 Eastern Regional at Lazydays!  Registration is now available on our web site and there are no immediate expenses.  Following registration, you will need to call Lazydays to reserve your site.

In January 2018, we will once again be attending the Florida RV Supershow as a group.  We’ll keep in touch with the Florida Recreational Vehicle Trade Association (FRVTA) but do not expect registration to be available until September 2017.  Last year this popular event was sold out in October!  – we had 32 coaches attend this event and the input we received was unanimous to do this again!  Information and registration will be through the Florida Recreation Vehicle Trade Association at www.frvta.org .

Welcome to Southeast’s newest members!  Rick & Virginia Gilbride, Naylor, GA, James &  Robin Giles, Simpsonville, SC, OL & Karen Kimes, Cape Coral, FL Donald Damstetter & Gail Stenger Dunedin, FL and Tony & Marsha Boyd, Winter Haven, FL

Our Rally coordinator Doug and I are working on our rally schedule for 2018 and hoping for your input!  Southeast is an active, friendly chapter and we would welcome fresh ideas on places to hold a rally.   We have a lot of experienced hosts and volunteers that are always willing to lend a hand.  We can be reached at pauline@southeastaca.net or doug@rvzoomin.com

Ray and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this chapter and we hope to see you soon!
