The 41st Annual WIT Grand National Rally Celebrates Hollywood Legends!

FOREST CITY, IOWA, July 19, 2010 -- Winnebago Industries rolled out the red carpet to welcome 1,240 coaches to Forest City as they celebrate Hollywood Legends at the 41st Annual Winnebago-Itasca Travelers (WIT) Grand National Rally (GNR). The WIT GNR began on Sunday, July 18 and runs through Friday, July 23.

“We’re off to a fantastic start,” said WIT General Manager Doug Formanek. “We’re in the process of getting reacquainted with old friends and meeting some new ones as well.” Held at the rally grounds across from Winnebago Industries headquarters in Forest City, this year’s rally is full of movie stars – both past and present. John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Frank Sinatra and even Elvis have been sighted at the rally!

Rally attendees are participating in a number of activities this week, including tours of Winnebago Industries’ state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, informative seminars, and of course, lots of entertainment. There are even some GNR firsts, including the filming of their very own movie, “Hollywood Endings,” as well as a new activity tent that is scheduled to host group gatherings for such events as woodcarving and banjo jam sessions.

Select vendors also participate in the GNR through displays and informative seminars throughout the week. In addition, new 2011 Winnebago and Itasca motor homes are also on display. Winnebago Industries features 24 model lines and 76 floorplans for 2011, 45 percent of which are new or redesigned! Rally participants looking for that hands-on feel, are also able to ride and drive some of the new 2011 units while they’re here.

Membership in WIT is open to anyone who owns a Winnebago Industries motor home. There are currently more than 14,000 Club members. WIT members are eligible for special member benefits and can also participate in local, state, regional and special interest clubs, and travel on a variety of WIT Club managed special events called caravans and rallies.

I think that the 1,240 coaches that are attending the GNR is awesome! That's impressive especially since it overlaps "The Rally" from Affinity Group.
