Dear Chapter Officers:
PLEASE FORWARD THIS INFORMATION TO ALL OF YOUR CHAPTER MEMBERS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
I know you haven’t received any updates in a while. We are in the home stretch of getting everything ready for the Rally to begin on July 9. You can still register for the rally up until Tuesday, June 30 through home office. Your packet will be waiting for you in Will Call when you arrive at Essex Junction. After that date you will need to register on site at Essex Junction. Let them know when you arrive that you need to register and they will assist you with that. Don’t forget we welcome all types of units, fifth wheel, tow behind, etc. You do not have to be a member of FMCA to attend. So, bring your friends for a great time.
For those that plan on attending:
* If you purchased tickets for the Dinner Cruise and/or Pig Roast you will pick up your tickets at the registration desk when you hand in your locator card.
* If you are part of a caravan please make sure everyone has a placard in their window showing name and # in caravan: for example –
SMITH 1 OF 10, SMITH 2 OF 10, SMITH 3 OF 10, etc. You may have to wait in the HOLDING area for everyone in your group to arrive; once your entire group has arrived our parking crew will do their best to get you parked as quickly as possible. Please be patient when arriving at the gate, and follow the directions given to you by our volunteer crews.
* IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOUR CREDENTIALS BE VISIBLE IN THE LOWER LEFT-HAND CORNER OF THE PASSENGER WINDSHEILD BY THE TIME YOU ARRIVE AT THE GATE. THEY MUST BE DISPLAYED AND VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES DURING THE RALLY.
* Don’t forget to bring a toy for the Marine Toys for Tots and a stuffed animal for the local Emergency Corps.
Our business meeting will be held on Saturday, check your program book for time and place. We will be installing 2 new officers and saying goodbye to 2 VPs. All are welcome to attend this meeting. Your National Director and President (or Alternate Delegates) are especially encouraged to attend for voting purposes. This is your way to see what is being done in the area and be heard if you have any concerns. We want everyone to feel welcome at this meeting.
This is the last email I will be sending until after the rally. I hope to see a great turnout this year and I look forward to meeting everybody. Please do not hesitate to introduce yourself to the Executive Board members when you see us wandering the grounds. We encourage you to ask questions as that is why we are here. We hope everyone has a great time at “The Junction”.
SEE YOU THERE………..and please travel safe!
