Workhorse owners club sets new attendance record at spring rally

TUCSON, Ariz. (June 9, 2008) "” The spring rally of the Workhorse Chassis Motor Home Club (WCMC) set a new attendance record for Workhorse club rallies with 84 family units on the scene for fun and education April 15 to 19.

The event at the Beaudry RV Resort and Rally Park in Tucson, drew a great number of first-time attendees. "I would bet this was the first rally for nearly half of them," said Club President Ed Gray.

"A lot of people in the last six months have joined the club specifically so they could attend this rally," said Gray. The 400-site resort at Beaudry RV includes campsite patios with wrought iron furniture and other resort amenities. Also, the Workhorse seminars are a big draw, said Gray.

Seminars by Workhorse personnel, Redlands Truck and RV Performance Center of Redlands, Calif., Alcoa Wheels and Michelin Tires were well attended. Kongsberg Automotive, a supplier for Workhorse's WISE™ multiplexing system and adjustable pedals, made its first appearance at a WCMC rally. Kongsberg representatives explained their work and current advancements in chassis technology.

Rally goers were also among the first to see the new Winnebago model built on the Workhorse UFO™ rear engine gas chassis "” the Adventurer Limited, which was supplied by nearby La Mesa RV and purchased at the rally by one of the club members. Ride and drives on a Winnebago Destination demo coach built on the Workhorse UFO chassis were conducted over two of the days.

In official business, Ed Hessemer was named the club's new Vice President for Rallies "” West. He replaces outgoing Vice President Dan Moynahan. Moynahan and his wife Sue were the rally masters. The club, which is a chapter of FMCA, also heard from Jay Blumenthal, president of INTO (International) Area of FMCA, who updated members about FMCA benefits.

Fall Rally
Club members are now looking forward to the fall rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The "Sun and Surf Rally" will be Oct. 6 to 10 at the Ocean Lakes Family Campground. Registration is open, and club members will receive registration forms in the mail. Those interested should watch the WCMC website at WCMC.Workhorse.com for more details.

Is there ever a chance of a winter rally in southern Arizonia or California? January or Feb would be good. It would allow us snowbirds to join in.
Robert Zulian is worth listening to.

Yes, I second that request!

How about Palm Springs area Jan 12 thru 16 in 2009. That would be right after the FMCA rally in Rverside, CA and before Quartzsite, AZ show. Then Brazel's RV and Redlands RV could attend.
