Rallies are wonderful! Rallies consistently offer quality in meals, entertainment and activities. It’s the norm with Country Coach Friends events, not the exception. Locations vary for events, with an annual Friendship Rally held each year in Oregon. Being able to participate in fine five day events, helping plan them, volunteering at them, are all great benefits of being a CCFI member.
Wherever a rally finds Country Coach Friends gathering, one thing is a given—fun, friendship and food will be central to the rally’s agenda. No better people have we met than those we’ve met across the table at a CCFI event, or on a swamp tour while snapping photos of alligators and other critters! “We’ve met lifelong friends as we helped on the Parking and Rally Registration committees,” George Shallbetter said. “The topnotch entertianment and wonderful catered meals are exceptional at CCFI rallies. Fun casual events like “playing card Bingo” nights are a fun way to promote fellowship and have a lot of laughs! The extracurricular activities outside of the onsite rally agenda vary widely with each rally. It is these adventures that often prove to be the most talked about items on the schedule. A Mackinaw Island boat tour, food and wine pairings at local wineries, and a Louisiana swamp tours have all been highly reviewed.
Awesome Auctions for Worthy Causes. Each of our rallies includes a charity auction and CCFI members have been exceedingly generous. Beneficiaries have included Wounded Warriors, Junction City Local Aid, VA Dogs of Texas, God’s Storehouse, and others.
