Spring Rally Details by Jerry OConnor
Posted on Feb 1st, 2018 Comments (0)
CCFI SPRING RALLY—Y’ALL COME! by Jerry OConnor
Rally fun with our CCFI friends is straight ahead! The Buckhorn Lake RV Resort rally form is posted on this site. Prevost Car will again be among our generous sponsors list. This will allow us to take a tour of the Toyota factory in San Antonio, stopping at the Grill at Leon Springs for a no-host lunch (one of my favorites). We plan on doing this two days (the 18th and the 21st) as the factory tour allows 40 at a time. On our free day we there will be a concealed weapons class at the resort. This will be an additional fee activity.
Our entertainment will include Thomas Michael Riley who is always a crowd favorite on the 18th. Thomas Michael Riley has been recognized as Texas Singer of the Year. Our last evening we have secured 50 up front tickets for TG Shepard (dinner included in this evening of entertainment). We need to know how many tickets to reserve, so register quickly for the rally. Playing card bingo is very popular at CCFI rallies, so we will play high stakes card bingo on the next to the last night ($10 each).
One of the best rally nights is the raffle/auction charity night. Our goal is $12,000 to fully fund a dog for the VA Dogs Of Texas. Don’t forget to bring a quality prize for the auction or raffle. Tech talks and more is planned for Kerrville, too much to list. We’re also working on area attractions you won’t want to miss like the Museum of Western Art, which is an absolutely amazing collection of western art and also Fredericksburg’s Wine Road 290! Note: For our club dinners we will have a hosted bar including soft drinks except for the TG Shepard concert which will be BYOB and small corkage fee. REGISTER NOW FOR KERRVILLE TEXAS FUN WITH CCFI!
Also, the Country Coach Texans rally follows our rally by one day at the Cajun Palms RV Resort in Henderson, LA. This is another great resort. Our pull out day in Kerrville is April 22 and CC Texans start their rally April 23. Comfortably drive the 250 miles to Houston or Orange Texas, then drive to Henderson the 24th (about 250 miles). The registration form for the CC Texans rally is at www.cctexans.com. That rally price reflects the fact that rally camping charges are not in their registration price. Call Cajun Palms at 337-667-7772 to make you rally stay reservation for what ever length stay you would like before, during and after. Make sure you let Cajun Palms know you are with the CCT rally. Sherry and I are staying until the next Wednesday to go to the plantation, air boat ride and enjoy the local cuisine.

CCFI IS COMMITTED TO GIVING BACK!  by Jerry OConnor
Charitable giving is important to us individually and to CCFI as a club... With over $125,000 raised to date by CCFI rally goers, charitable giving is one of the attributes for which this particular motorhome owners club is known. Junction City Local Aid is one of those charities we support annually. Many of the CC employees displaced during that bankruptcy in 2009 and who built our coaches received a hand from JCLA during those dark days of job hunting. And to this very day it is still one of the most respected charitable organizations in Lane County.  It is the designated charity for the Annual Friendship Rally... Like wise when we really in Texas, we raise funds for VA Dogs of Texas, a wonderful support organization to our Veterans. 
Friendship is another. Make Friends4Life at a CCFI rally! Join the club; join the fun!

$125,000 and counting! CCFI Loves Supporting Charities
Posted on Dec 1st, 2017 Comments (0)
(*Now over $125,000!)
For CCFI (an International Chapter of FMCA), giving back within the communities where club rallies are held is just part of what makes belonging to this motorcoach owners club special.
 
In fact, since the club started they've raised in excess of $125,000 in charitable giving within the communities where they've rallied. Back in June 2011 a group of Country Coach motorcoach owners met along the beautiful Willamette River to discuss an owners club founded on friendship with less bureaucracy. They formed an international chapter of Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) and embarked on a fun filled cross country rally adventure that has quickly spanned five years! During that time they made giving back to the communities in which they rallied a high priority. The commitment of CCFI motorcoach owners to leaving a charitable mark within the communities they gather in is matched by the economic impact of the club’s visit to businesses throughout the area through goods purchased, entertainment, shopping, RV park stays and coach services purchased while members are in town. 
 
And the adventure continues. Membership in this fun loving club is open to all brands of motorhomes. Join the fun and meet some great new friends as you explore new locations with fellow recreation enthusiasts. Country Coach Friends Inc. was founded on Friendship with 42 motorcoach owners signing up at the initial rally in 2011. It now numbers over 200 Coach families and Growing! Member Benefits include discounts nationwide on services, parts, resort stays and more. CCFI members enjoy a robust list of benefits from Family Motor Coach Association, too, as all CCFI members also maintain a membership in FMCA.
