Summer Rally 2017 – Lewisburg, WV

TIFFIN ALLEGRO CLUB

SUMMER 2017 RALLY

LEWISBURG, WV

By:  Sally Moore

The rolling landscape of southeast West Virginia was the setting for our summer Tiffin Allegro Club Rally in June 2017.  This picturesque area in the historic Greenbrier County was a lovely area.  We were pleased to have 300 coaches for the rally.  Many guests were eager to take in the local sights and coaches began arriving almost a week early!  Many, many thanks to our willing volunteers who forfeited their sightseeing activities to help owners get parked and set-up before the rally.  Those beautiful rolling hills posed some hardships in getting 300 coaches leveled, but our parking crew persevered and everyone had a space.    After a rainy Monday, the weather settled in to cool mornings and pleasant afternoons.  Colton RV Center, North Tonawanda, NY brought several Tiffin coaches to the rally including the brand new Wayfarer by Tiffin.   Thank you, Colton RV, for being a part of our rally.  We appreciate your support and participation!  You made several people very happy by helping them move into the coach of their dreams!

As always, we could not host a Tiffin rally without our wonderful volunteers!  These folks come early and stay late helping with all the activities involved with the rally.  They truly are the face of our Tiffin rallies and we are so indebted to them.   These folks are priceless!  The harder they work, the happier they are!

In spite of a rainy start, our guests quickly found their way to the RV vendor displays, to the Tiffin Parts Store and Tiffin Allegro Club area.  At the Registration building, more volunteers helped guests with the upcoming rally activities and presented them with a welcome bag of gifts.

To kick off the activities, everyone gathered in the West Virginia Building on Monday evening for a delicious meal followed by welcoming remarks by Bob Tiffin, Nick Palm and Kelly Moore.    We consider it a privilege and honor to be able to recognize those who have served our nation.  Sarah Getto stirred everyone’s hearts when she sang the national anthem.  We salute our veterans and first responders!   We can never thank you enough for the service you gave.  After our veterans’ tribute, we had a fun time awarding door prizes and then everyone enjoyed a few games of Tiffin Allegro Bingo. Thank you, Bob & Joanne Brown, for being our Bingo hosts!  Prizes were awarded with much fun and laughter.

Tuesday morning saw several of our energetic souls out for an early morning power walk.   Immediately after breakfast, seminars on several RV related topics were held.   You have made a sizeable investment to own and operate a Tiffin motorhome.  Our goal is to help provide you with the most information possible to take care of your coach and receive the maximum enjoyment from it.  Some seminars are repeated at each rally so new guests will receive the information.  Others are added as presenters are available.  At this rally, we were happy to have Nick Lacasse, Director of the Greenbrier Historical Society, lecture about the area we were visiting.  Information from major components and suppliers such as Freightliner, PowerGlide, Onan, Convection Cooking and the Tiffin electrical systems are always vital to our rallies.  We were very happy to have the Freightliner service trailer available during this rally.   Everyone loved the Attitude Adjustment Art Therapy classes led by Marty Whitney at our first rally this year and Marty had three move wonderful sessions at this rally.  Ladies LOVED making art projects and these classes were filled to maximum each day.  Pattie Jean Warren also taught a great class on making Greeting Cards by stamping that everyone enjoyed.

All owners were invited to participate in a craft & hobby show Tuesday afternoon.  It’s always interesting to see the crafts that RVers make while touring the country in their Tiffin coach.

Volunteers were available inside the Colton RV display with delicious ice cream treats for everyone on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.   This was a great opportunity to visit with one another and share travel experiences.

Tuesday night we welcomed back Tiffin’s sweetheart, Sarah Getto.   Sarah has entertained our guests at several Tiffin rallies and our guests love her!  So much talent, poise and beauty!  Sarah is a joy and an inspiration to many.  We’ve already been asked when Sarah is coming back!

Wednesday morning saw our dedicated walkers out on a chilly morning.   More interesting and informative seminars were held throughout the day in the West Virginia Building and the Underwood Building.  Everyone gathered at noon for a Tailgate Buffet of delicious grilled burgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings.

Many owners participated in our “Summertime Fun” site decoration contest.  Lots of originality and thought went into this.  Judging get harder and harder at each rally!  Gift certificates were awarded to the winners after dinner on Wednesday evening.  Thanks to everyone who participated!    The Joseph Sisters were the entertainment after dinner.

On Thursday morning everyone gathered in the West Virginia Building for another delicious buffet breakfast followed by a morning of educational seminars.

The new coach display was a busy area and Colton RV sales staff was able to make several people’s dream come true during the rally!  Folks gathered here after lunch for a “Swap Meet”.  Many folks brought items that needed to find a new home!   Others made their best deal to take those items home with them!!   This is always a fun activity at our rallies.

Thursday evening brought an end to our festivities.  After another delicious meal, more fantastic Tiffin door prizes and Red Bay stories by Kelly Moore, everyone enjoyed entertainment by the number 1 ranked Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons tribute artist, “Let’s Hang On”.   This group of men backed by a live band brought down the house!  They did a great job singing the songs we all love and remember.

We simply cannot say enough about the hard working service technicians from Tiffin’s & Colton RV.  They are our unsung heroes and do a remarkable job of visiting each coach during the rally to perform minor repairs/adjustments to the coach.  Kudos to them!!  The occasional rain shower slowed them down, but they also persevered until every coach was visited.

Friday morning many Tiffin friends hooked up the tow and headed on to their next destination while several extended their stay in Lewisburg for a few more days.  Many stayed to visit the beautiful Greenbrier Resort.  Whatever your plans, travel safely and we hope to see you at a Tiffin rally somewhere in the near future!  The schedule for our upcoming rallies in 2018 has been announced and you can see it at www.TiffinSideroads.com.  These rallies will sell-out so make note of the on-sale date & time so you don’t get left out.  Happy trails!

2018 TIFFIN ALLEGRO CLUB RALLIES

TIFFIN ALLEGRO CLUB 2018 RALLIES

See 2018 dates and locations below.

The Tiffin Allegro Club is blessed to have a difficult problem! Tiffin rallies have become so popular, we can’t accommodate everyone who wants to attend!  All of our 2017 rallies sold out within minutes of the opening bell!  It has been suggested that we have larger rallies; back-to-back rallies; or more frequent rallies.  To increase the size of our rallies would change the format and benefits that we offer at a rally.  Most caterers cannot prepare more than the 5000 meals in four days that we currently offer; service techs cannot visit more than 300-325 coaches in four days.  Back-to-back rallies take our OEM suppliers, Bob Tiffin, service techs, sales staff, office staff, etc. out of the office for too long.  A rally takes days of on the grounds preparation and back-to-back rallies would consume almost 3 weeks.  We now host three rallies per year serving almost 1000 coaches.  Just a few years ago in 2013 & prior, we only hosted a yearly total of 250 coaches.  So you see, we have given careful thought to this.  We do not strive to become a FMCA or Good Sam rally; that is not what we offer.  Our intention is to keep it small and manageable.  Bob Tiffin loves to meet his owners and shake their hands.

To make rally registration fair and available to everyone, we use an outside registration processor.  This outside vendor accumulates all registrations and provides us information in the order that registrations are received.  This has eliminated problems with overloading our email server, jamming the fax machine, etc.   No rally registrations are accepted by mail, in person or by telephone.  The only way to register for a rally is online at www.Tiffinmotorhomes.com.  Click on the Owner’s tab, then click Tiffin Allegro Club, finally click on Rallies and go to the specific rally you wish to attend.  The Registration Form will not be available until exactly the opening time stated.  Be at your computer and ready to begin completing the required information when the clock rolls over to “ :00”.    A PayPal page will open immediately after you submit the registration form.  It is not necessary to have a PayPal account to make payment.  You can also pay as a “guest” with your credit card the same as someone with a PayPal account.

Again, early registrations will not be accepted and you must have a current membership in the Tiffin Allegro Club to participate.  Anyone not having access to the internet should ask a friend or family member to register for them as we will not be able to register anyone by telephone.

As always, we are here to answer any questions you have concerning upcoming rallies.  Give us a call at 256-356-8522 Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Central Time.  Travel safe and enjoy your beautiful Tiffin coach!
