2016 International Rally

I just received my notification for the International Jayco Rally to be held this year in Lebanon, Tn., July 18-22, 2016.

It will be at the James E. Ward Agri Center.

We are going to try and re-arrange our schedule to attend.
Wondering if anyone else is already considering it?

If so, Check with Jayco Travel Club by calling 1-800-262-5178 or 574-258-0571 and ask for
Jackie.

We are certainly considering going to the Rally. Have been to the last five or six and have enjoyed the experience. Renewed old acquaintances, saw some country not visited before, and enjoyed the activities. Good times.

That's where the majority of the membership lives so it was hard to get people to drive long distances when gas prices were high. That could change in the future if gas stays down, who knows?

Talkiing about the JAYCO JAYFARI Membership, the highest concentration of FLIGHTS(local clubs) are in the Midwest or East Coast. I think that it would make the Club Managers estatic if every member here joined.

Does anyone know what electrical service is available at the rally site (30 or 50 amp)? I am not sure DW will agree to go if we can't use both air conditioners.

Best to contact the event sponsors. Some rallies do have limited 50a for first come first serve, others not. I am sure more info will be forthcoming.

So I looked at the web site and find nothing on advantages to belong. Lots more info right here.

Info yes, personal friendships not as much.

The camaraderie that comes from the local rallies and the same for the International is amazing. Our kids have been to Rallies (in their own units) with kids that they met at the Rallies 25 30 years ago. Unfortunately sports and other school activities now encompass 13 out of 12 months so families no longer do the week long Rallies as they did in the 70's and 80's so the club is now more of the "older generation" unfortunately.


We have made hundreds of friends from across the country with the STARCRAFT Club. We've been members there since 1973 and we also belong to JAYCO, but since the Rallies (JAYCO/STARCRAFT or vice-versa)use to be back to back we've only attended a couple.

We probably would not have traveled to as many states and provinces as we have, had it not been for the Rallies. Starcraft's Club started in 1968, JAYCO's started many years later.

Our yearly $25-$35 membership fee is/was, we felt, well spent
