2022 Retiree Rally Recap


Attendance expectations for the 2022 Retiree  Rally were exceeded with 82 RV units and 170 + people on hand at the Mineola, Texas Civic Center, It was a great facility for the 50th annual rally with level parking, full hookups, lots of meeting / activity rooms, the large Live Oak Auditorium, and lots of usable outdoor space for games. Several early arrivals opted to attend a Mystery Play Dinner Show at the Civic Center. After a 2 year moratorium caused by Covid, old friends from all over the U.S and Canada were very glad to see each other again.

2021 Campvention Recap


After a tumultuous 2020 with no Campvention and no Retiree Rally the 129 units (families, couples, singles) attending FCRV’s 61st Campvention at Elkhorn, Wisconsin welcomed the opportunity to get together with friends both old and new. Joyful greetings of “Hey, glad to see you, how have you been?” accompanied by hugs, hand shakes and fist bumps were heard everywhere. Some of the early arrivals took time to “Wander Wisconsin” as the theme suggested. Unfortunately travel restrictions still in effect in Canada prevented most Canadians from attending.
