CCFI SPRING RALLY—Y’ALL COME! by Jerry OConnor
Fantastic Food from the Buckhorn Lake RV Resort kitchen and Great Entertainment like Thomas Michael Riley and a visit to Rockbox Theater – these are just the tip of all that there is planned for the CCFI Spring Rally. 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!
Fredericksburg Wineries and Texas Hill Country Vineyards
 
Visit a countryside reminiscent of the wine growing regions of central Italy and the Rhone Valley in France. Our Fredericksburg Wine Road 290 is an association of Texas wineries along US Highway 290 on either side of Fredericksburg, Texas (see map). The wine, ambience and experience at each winery is unique to say the least. 
 
WE ARE WORKING ON THIS AS A RALLY ACTIVITY!  More Details to come!   Fredericksburg, Texas has been featured in virtually every travel magazine, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and a regular on HGTV, Fredericksburg and the surrounding Texas Hill Country has become a must vacation destination. A beautiful, historic main street, amazing shopping, excellent restaurants and a plethora of fun things to do …including those wineries and vineyards.
 
Kerrville Texas is the place to be this Spring at the CCFI Spring Rally!  Register today here online!

CCFI IS COMMITTED TO GIVING BACK!  by Jerry OConnor
Charitable giving is important to us individually and to CCFI as a club... After our organizational meeting back in June 2011, the membership agreed we needed to give back to the communities in which we rally. Junction City Local Aid is one of those charities we support annually. JCLA was a godsend to many former Country Coach employees displaced back in the days of the the company’s bankruptcy and closure. Many of the folks who built our coaches received a hand 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 a transparent vital service to the community in which all Country Coaches were originally built.  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.  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.
Friendship is another. Make Friends4Life at a CCFI rally! Join the club; join the fun!
 
Update from John - Club President
Posted on Dec 11th, 2017 Comments (0)
It's that greatest time of the year when we all push PAUSE on our busy schedules and enjoy the extra time with family and friends. Juanita and I want to extend our warmest wishes for a very healthy happy holiday season and coming year.
Boy we sure have had a great year as a club, haven’t we, enjoying rally fun together and sharing information back and forth along the way via the yahoo forum, Facebook page and our website! We look forward to seeing many of you again soon in 2018 at our two scheduled rallies. Our spring rally is in such a great location with great things to do and see within easy driving distance. Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville, Texas is a top notch resort with an wonderful staff. You may register for the CCFI Spring Rally within this issue.
Watch for registration information coming soon for our summer Friendship Rally in Oregon. It's that annual trek back to the state where all Country Coaches were originally built. We love stopping at all our business partners/club sponsors who offer such outstanding services to our club members.  Two of them are OMC and Bob Dickman Tire. Oregon Motorcoach Center is the founding advertiser in the CCFI Enews. We appreciate the commitment of advertising dollars to help offset the cost of producing this little gem each month. Bob Dickman Tire Center is another loyal CCFI business sponsor. They advertise within this eNews and they generously support our annual Friendship Rally experience each year in Oregon. Be sure to thank these companies personally for advertising within our FRIENDS TO FRIENDS eNews when you next visit their establishments (and all the other great business friends we have in the Lane County area!). To all our business friends, thank you for your generous support of our motorcoach travels.
Thank You George Shallbetter for all your efforts on behalf of this club as MidWest VP. George recently resigned and I have appointed Bryan Van Loo to finish out George’s term. We appreciate each and every one you, too, our members.
Your continued membership is what makes this club what it is today—undoubtedly one of the FRIENDLIEST.  Invite your friends, the more the merrier! ALL BRANDS WELCOME.
We are truly blessed to be able to enjoy this special lifestyle together. Enjoy these final days of 2017, and travel safe.
 
$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.
