Tennessee State Rally

Lebanon, TN

October 17-20, 2019

Come, join, and enjoy the fall colors, October 17 to 20, 2019 at the Tennessee State Rally, in Lebanon, TN just a few miles from Nashville’s Music City. Our theme this year celebrates “Tennessee Music.” Tennessee is noted for the birthplaces of Bluegrass in East Tennessee, home of Country Music in Central Tennessee, and the Birthplace of Rock-N-Roll (Elvis) and the Blues (Beale St.) in West Tennessee.
 
Check in early to visit area attractions and attend pre-rally tours - like the Nissan Automobile Plant. Other activities will include free drivers training in a motorhome, various individual and team games, live evening entertainment, auction, workshops, vendors, cake walk and more. If enough interest we will schedule a pre-rally golf outing. We will start off Thursday evening with the Tennessee hospitality food table, followed by catered meals on Friday and Saturday. We hear some line dancing and some new RV recommended cooking methods may be offered. As always, our mascot “Davy Crockett” will be hanging around the rally.
 
Come early, enjoy the pre-rally and rally activities, and stay late to enjoy the friendship of all attendees and the local area. The Ag Center camping fees are $20.00 per night. 
 
Registration forms and rally fees will be published at a later date. For current and up to date information go to the TN VOL STATE WINNIES website www.tnvolstatewinnies.org. If you have other questions about the rally, please contact the President of VSW, Ralph Wiggers at 931-787-4157 or rvwiggers59@gmail.com
 
Mark the dates on your calendar as we hope to see you at our biennial Tennessee State Rally. We are planning on some new and exciting tours and workshops for all attendees.
 
 
 

Texas State Rally

Mineola, TX

October 17-20, 2019

Y’all come! Texas is having its 2019 TEXAS STATE RALLY in Mineola October 17-20! Everyone is invited and we particularly look forward to entertaining our out-of-state friends. Less than 175 miles from Ardmore, OK and just over 100 miles from Shreveport, LA, we hope to see many of our near neighbors there. 

Wherever you are in our great nation, THE place to be in mid-October is with TX W at our state rally in Mineola! Plan to arrive early. Although the details are still hush-hush, we’re planning some fantastic pre-event excursions for a couple days before the rally actually starts. As soon as these great events are confirmed, the reservation form will be on the website at http://www.texasw.org/ – print it out, fill it in, return it and mark your calendars for Mineola October 17-20! 

As a very special treat, this year we’re going to have the great band Shake, Rattle & Roll, an all-female 50s & 60s Tribute Show Group – the songs, the singing, the costumes and the comedy will keep you glued to your seats, unless, of course, you want to get up and dance to those tunes you so enjoyed in the past! Bring your 50s and 60s attire and get into the swing of an era that brings back such sweet memories! I suspect that a nice prize might be hiding among those cherished outfits still hanging in the back of your closet or storage space. (If you still need convincing, you’ll want to see the video at https://www.gigmasters.com/50s-singer/shake-rattle--roll)

In case you’ve missed our great Mineola gatherings in the past, the Mineola Civic Center RV Park is a great facility with paved roads, level cement pads and plenty of grass. The auditorium is huge, has a great stage, and plenty of meeting rooms. And, as always, we’ll be having the fantastic catering of the Mineola Civic Center, vendors galore and all the comradery of the road along with all your favorite games. While you’re in the vicinity, there is soooo much to see: good antique shopping, a great quilting shop, museums of the railroad, of history and a lovely nature preserve.
