The dates for the rally are June 5 through June 8 2019 and the location is the Allegan County Fairground in Allegan Michigan. This is the second rally to be held at this location. The 2020 rally will likely be held at a different site as the membership voted to change the area rally venue every two years.

You will enjoy the Thursday evening free night with a choice of card bingo or a potential trip to the casino. Other events for your enjoyment include new RV displays, vendors, book exchange, chapter officer/vendor reception and a volunteer dinner.

Volunteers will receive an additional $5 in vendor bucks on top of the $5 included in each RV registration packet. As a further incentive to volunteer, Tuesday night, June 4 camping is free. Other attendees who arrive on Tuesday will have to pay $30 cash to camp on Tuesday, the earliest arrival date.
