The 2005 Great North American RV Rally, scheduled July 11-14 in Redmond, Ore., at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center, has attracted more than 5,500 registered rigs and is expected to swell to nearly 12,000 people.
The Redmond rally marks the sixth year for the event, which will be held on a 132-acre facility offering participants a full slate of scheduled seminars and activities.
“All too often, we get so caught up in our busy day-to-day routines that we forget to just kick back and enjoy the little things, such as sharing stories with friends,” said event organizer Bev Dalton. “We like to make the rally a place where RVers can do just that. Here they don’t have to worry about anything. We take care of all of the details.”
The rally also is geared to promote camaraderie among the attendees.
“People love meeting other people,” continued Dalton. “The most common sight at each of our rallies is people sitting in their lawn chairs, swapping stories about their travels, grandchildren and whatever else may come up. It’s really an amazing feeling when you get to experience the many relationships being established.”
Organizers have already locked in on the site for the 2006 rally, scheduled to run April 8-11 at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Fla.
The rally is hosted by the Good Sam Club, Camping World President’s Club, Coast to Coast Resorts, Woodall’s and MotorHome and Trailer Life magazines. All are business units of Affinity Group Inc., parent to RV Business and RVBUSINESS.com.
