Tiffin Travelers Rallies and Gatherings:
Rallies - Tiffin Travelers have rallies numerous times a year in various locations throughout the country.  We are not bounded by geographic regions.  We go where our members want to go, and our members are spread far and wide.  Rallies are multi-day events most often organized by Tiffin Travelers for our members, prospective members and guests.  These rallies often have planned outings, dinners and other activities for our members.  Our chapter rally calendar has been quite active for several consecutive years.  The 2020 calendar is wide open for you to schedule a chapter rally in a location of your choosing.  

If any member is interested in hosting a rally, it is never too early to set those dates.  To schedule and host a rally, contact chapter officers by email at tiffintravelers@gmail.com

Our chapter rally schedule is dependent upon our members stepping forward to host and we look forward to you creating a busy 2020.    In addition to numerous event Gatherings each year, we enjoyed 4 chapter rallies in 2018 and another 4 during 2019.

Gatherings - It is also common for Tiffin Travelers to meet and glamp "together" at an event such as an FMCA International Convention or FMCA Area Rally or Allegro Club National Rally.  The "together" part can be tricky due to large events offering several different parking venue options for our members (handicap, volunteer, electric, generator, etc.), but we convene for fun regardless of how our coaches might be spread about the grounds.

Tiffin owners who would like to be "Roughing It Smoothly" with us are encouraged to come and visit with us.

Prior year Rallies and Gatherings information has been moved from this page to the "Rally Archives" link.

Because we have so many members and friends, we have a friendly rule for all of our events:  Wear a name tag to all of our functions or incur a 50cent fine for each infraction.  The sheriff is always on the lookout.  

Tiffin Traveler events on the 2020 drawing board: 

Gathering - The Sun n Fun Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida was the site of the FMCA Southeastern Area Rally - aka SEA - Feb. 5th until Feb. 9th, 2020.  More than 25 of our member coaches were in attendance.  Thursday afternoon most of those members, and a few new ones, gathered for two hours of social time, sipping and snacking beside the chapter president's coach.    

Gathering - The Sun n Fun Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida will be the site of the "Up Up and Away Balloon Festival" February 28th, 2020.   Tiffin Travelers members received a discount for hook-up site reservations made by September 30th.  Click the February Florida Balloon Festival link below for event information and registration instructions.  If you reserved for the event and haven't already notified us, email us at tiffintravelers@gmail.com so that we can include you in any chapter socials sure to occur.  Those known to have registered will receive a tiffintravelers@gmail reminder the week prior to the event.

The rally agenda will include our 1-hour-or-less annual business meeting.  Deadline to reserve a site was January 31st.   The rally officially begins April 22, 2020 with official departure on the 26th.   There are options for early and/or late departure.  Do not contact the RV Park to be put on the wait list.  Information regarding the rally and the unique reservations instructions can be found at the below link. 
Rally - Put a placeholder on your calendar for a chapter rally in October.   Members and repeat rally hosts, Bill and Pat Murton, will host our chapter rally in Lewisburg, WV immediately following the FMCA Eastern Area Rally (GEAR) being held at the same facility.  The chapter rally will be a four night event beginning October 4, 2020.  Check back here for future updates as this event is in the very early planning stages and it is not yet time to be thinking about making reservations....just mark the date on your calendar and check back later as more information is available.

Rally - There is an early spring 2021 chapter rally brewing in the southeast.  Stay tuned for dates and more information.
