Family Members Buy RV’s At Sevierville Rally

2015-09-25 21.25.58

When Tammy and Rodney Ripley bought their first Tiffin Phaeton 2007, Tammy’s parents were so impressed with the Tiffin products that they bought a 2008 Allegro Open Road. In 2014 Tammy and Rodney decided to join the Chesapeake Allegros Camping Club. The club members told them about how great the Tiffin Rallies are so they decided to register for the Sevierville Rally held in September.

Tammy asked her parents (Paul and Nancy McGee) if they wanted to go along and they said they would like to attend. The trip started with the Chesapeake Allegros Seafood Festival Weekend at Bar Harbor RV Park in Abingdon, Maryland. From there the two couples traveled to Sevierville with a stop in Natural Bridge, Virginia to break up the trip.

On Monday, they arrived at the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally. There were a lot of Tiffin coaches set up for attendees to look through. Paul and Nancy McGee found a coach they liked even before they all made it up to the Tiffin registration table. After registering and enjoying lunch both couples started looking through all the coaches and talking with a salesman from Tennessee RV (Ronn Tritto).

After a few days of deliberation on the coaches they wanted and a lot of negotiating, both couples made a deal on a trade in and a new coach around 4:30 pm on Thursday night.  Paul and Nancy McGee bought a 2016 Allegro Open Road 36LA, Rodney and Tammy bought a 2016 Phaeton 40AH.  Friday brought a day of paperwork; walk through on the coaches and transferring all of their items from their coaches to the new coaches.  After a few glitches and repairs taken care of, both couples (parents and daughter and son in law) drove off the lot with new Tiffin Motorhomes. They stopped again at the Natural Bridge KOA this time with newer coaches than they had a week ago.

Thank you to Tiffin for the great rally and to Tennessee RV for hooking us up with our new coaches.

Spring is here and chapters are out and about enjoying their beautiful Tiffin coaches.  Below are some rally recaps and interesting places to visit.  Perhaps you will learn of something fun and interesting to add to your next rally!

New Mexico – Zia Allegros

Hi Everyone!  Hope you all are having a nice spring.

Our April Rally was held at Lady Bird Johnson’s RV Park in
Fredericksburg, Texas.  George and Pam Raney were our Rally Masters.  They did a great job, Pam outdid herself with our wonderful welcome evening dinner.  She made BBQ Pork, Mac N Cheese, beans, slaw, apple salad and 3 homemade pies for dessert.  Yummy, thank you Pam for all your hard work.

Those who attended were the Barbers, their friends the Fords, Boyadjians, Eckels, friends of Hoffmans, Harrisons, Holmes, Twinings and of course our hosts, the Raneys.

On Thursday several golfed, others went into town and shopped or just looked around.  Then we all had dinner at Andy’s Restaurant.

Friday some couples went for a ride to see the beautiful Bluebonnets and other wildflowers, or to the LBJ Summer Whitehouse Ranch.  That night some went out for pizza.

Saturday the golfers went again and that night we had dinner at Auslander German Restaurant and onto the Rock Box Theater to see Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and Aretha Franklin and George Strait impersonators.  What a great show and John Barber was such a great sport to get up on stage with Marilyn.

Saturday we had the pleasure of being entertained by some airplanes from the World War II era that were flying at the airport near the RV Park.  It was quite a show.

Sunday some went to church, that afternoon we went to Luckenbach to enjoy some Texas music.   There is so much to do in the area.

Monday more golf and a potluck.  We had so much good food and fellowship.

The Holmes had to leave Monday.  Tuesday the Boyadjians, Barbers and Fords left.  That day those remaining went shopping and had lunch at Fredericksburg Brewing Co.  Dinner was at another German restaurant.  Boy, now we all need to go on a diet for sure.  After dinner we had a movie provided by Bill and Bev Eckel.

Wednesday everyone said their goodbyes.  So a big thank you to George and Pam for putting on a great Rally.

We had our club meeting Monday.  For those who know Dick and Diana Hickox, they are moving from Pagosa Springs to lower elevation for Diana’s health problem.  So they will not be with us too often.  Dick has resigned as VP of our club but Bruce Twining has stepped up till January.   Thanks, Bruce.

Our next rallies are:

June 8th – 13th takes us to Durango, CO at Alpine Rose RV Park.  If you plan on going you must make your reservations by May 8th.  If you are interested please call 970-247-5540 ASAP and be sure to let Norbert and Patsy Baca know you are coming.  Npbaca52@gmail.com or call Patsy 505-459-3611

June 30th-July7th takes us to Creede, CO.  Harrisons and Hoffmans are Rally Hosts.  We are staying at the Mountain View Rivers Edge RV Resort.  Please call 719-658-2710 and ask for Helen.  Let her know you are with the Zia’s or DJ Hoffman.   It’s a beautiful area if you haven’t been. Please let DJ or Betty know you are coming.  jphffmn@aol.com or betharris351@q.com

July 7th will take us to Pagosa Springs, CO at Wolf Creek Run RV Resort.  This will be a “NO Rally Rally” meaning no Wagon Masters and no firm agenda.   I believe we have 6 sites and so far we only know the Barber’s, Harrison’s and Hoffman’s are attending.  So if you are interested please call Diana at Wolf Creek for your reservations at 970-264-0365 let them know you are with the Zia’s.  It will be from July 7th – 11th.

August 16th –September 13th is our second “Rolling Rally” to Yellowstone, the Tetons and Rapid City, SD (Mount Rushmore).  John and Brenda Barber will be our hosts.  So far we have Baca, Barber, Halasz, Harrison, Hoffman, and Twining.  Brenda is making all of our RV Park reservations and then we are on our own.  More information to follow from Brenda.

Chapter 81, Pelican Allegros of Louisiana

Mai Cherie this ol’bird’s wings sure are sore.  As you know a number of the flock, including us, ventured off in various directions from Charleston in search of great roosting areas.  Many of us deciding that if we were already away from the nest we’d just keep the journey going and use Meaher State Park in Spanish Fort, AL as a way point on the flight home.  The early birds on Wednesday were the Holliers, Louvieres, Robichauxs and guests Lee & Anna Darbonne and Francis and Ann Brian.

Thursday the rest of the flock began arriving as the Browers, Garys, Griffins, Heberts, Lams, Mieschs, Raybons, Schnebelens, Trahans and Tregues landed after a safe flight, albeit full of those dreaded love bugs.  After ridding themselves of the black masks, some of the folks visited Fairhope and Pt. Clear to see historic homes and sites.  Late that afternoon we met to share assorted treats and stories of our journeys.

Friday dawned another beautiful day that was enjoyed by all to the fullest.  A few visited Mobile, while others continued their exploration of the East bay area or on to the west to Dauphin Island.  That evening we all gathered together at Felix’s Restaurant on Battleship Parkway near the battleship Alabama where we enjoyed many great dishes from Soft Shell Crab to Red Fish Oscar.

Our meeting Saturday morning was held under the pavilion and Dwight started the meeting with the first order of business of voting in our newest members Lee and Anna Darbonne. Stacie gave the treasury report. There were some minor corrections that were needed to members’ address/phone numbers in our membership booklet that Liz Miesch put together so if anyone has any personal information that needs to be changed in the booklet or the PALS roster, please let either Stacie or Liz know ASAP.  Debbie went over the evening’s dinner plans and the upcoming outings including those in early 2016.  It has been proposed that we look into going to the Kentucky Derby for our long trip in May 2017.  Let us know what you think.

After the meeting, most everyone went to the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL for lunch and then to either ride their bike along the coast or enjoy a beverage on the veranda while they waited for the bicyclers.   After working up an appetite, we got together to watch the Kentucky Derby and then eat a fabulous crawfish etoufee made by Glenn Hebert.   After the rainstorms of early last week, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for our weekend.

Safe travels,

Lonnie

Texas Bluebonnet Allegros Chapter 202 South Central Texas

Boerne Rally (pronounced Burnie for non -Texans) April 8-12, 2015

The Texas BlueBonnet Allegros rallied in Boerne, Texas May 8-12. Our beautiful Texas Bluebonnets were in bloom everywhere. There were many things to do. Members went shopping in quaint downtown Boerne. They drove around the hill country to view the Bluebonnets. Some went as far as Fredericksburg and Pipe Creek. For those that arrived early Wednesday, we went out to the Dodging Duck Brew Pub for dinner. All kinds of games were held every night in the clubhouse and most participated. We had “42”, jokers and pegs, card games and puzzles, etc.

The hosts Art & Shirley Buckert and Shirleen & Hank Smith provided a ham for the potluck on Thursday night. Friday night, the hosts put on a catered feed of brisket, sausage, smoked turkey, pinto beans, a spinach salad, and a chocolate dessert.  Saturday we held our regular business meeting, where we elected our new officers for the coming year. We followed the meeting with our usual tech talk forum discussing anything from add-ons, to things about our coaches. Afterwards many went downtown to the Saturday Market Days. Saturday evening we went to the Hungry Horse Cafe for good meals and plenty of food (which we did not need!)

Sunday saw a light breakfast and good-byes until next month at Port Aransas, Pioneer RV Park, May 13-17 although many are coming earlier.

We had members from Houston, Vidor, Victoria, San Antonio, New Braunfels, Dripping Springs, Salado and many other towns attending. 15 coaches in all!

Spring Campout – Zooland Campground, Asheboro, NC

Our club just returned from its first campout of 2015.  Five couples camped at the Zooland Campground in Asheboro, NC from April 8-12.  Two other couples came to the campground on Saturday to spend the day with us.

The Hales hosted a welcome “Mexican Fiesta” meal in the campground clubhouse followed by fun and socializing.  Friday saw the group splitting up with some visiting the Asheboro Zoo, others sightseeing and shopping in town, and a few lazing around the campground.  That night everyone went into town for dinner followed by bingo and card games at the clubhouse.

Saturday night was potluck at the clubhouse and all the dishes were excellent as usual including TOO MANY wonderful desserts.  Our meeting followed, then a card bingo game with two very happy winners.  We followed this with a small goodies grab bag giveaway – one per couple.  Each member was then forced into committing the crime of theft of one item from another couple’s booty pile.  A Tiffin visor became the most coveted item incurring four thefts before it finally found a home.  The grand door prize drawing won by Snow included several larger items including another Tiffin visor which made Pat Snow, an earlier visor theft victim very happy!

Sunday morning found most of us standing around saying our goodbyes and getting off to a last departure.  Hope everyone had a safe journey onward!

Chapter #_215, Peach State Allegros, Georgia

Chapter Reporter – Clint Boyd, 770-478-3613, jcboyd@bellsouth.net

Tropical Palms RV Resort, Kissimmee, FL: 278 full-hookups,(202 pull-through), 30/50 Amps, heated pool, free (but weak) WiFi.  NOT recommended for chapter rallies.  Park failed to keep contract for adjoining sites.   Site maintenance was below average for a “resort”, with tree litter and ruts in overgrown grass.

We visited Capone’s Dinner and Show, Kissimmee, a buffet dinner with musical comedy show.  Service was very good and a good time was had by all.

Regarding attractions:  it’s Orlando, after all!  Disney World, Universal Studios, Atlanta Braves spring training all close by. A classic and street-rod car show was held a block from the park on Saturday.

12 coaches from the Chapter (including two first-timers) met for a weekend of camaraderie before the Allegro Club Orlando rally. Hosts Jens and Henny Christensen expertly planned several participatory meals and appetizer arrays and arranged for the group outing at Capone’s.

The group met at one especially large area between two member coaches, and did not need nor use resort facilities. A Chapter business meeting was held on Sunday morning, followed by a discussion of the route and times for getting to the Tiffin Allegro Club rally.  The group travelled independently to the Fairgrounds, met in the staging area, and entered and parked together which enhanced social gatherings of the Chapter.

Two Chapter members purchased new Tiffin coaches from La Mesa RV during the show, and many more crunched numbers at the new coach display. Kudos to the volunteers who parked us and made the Rally a success, especially for the first-time attendees.

Thursday, April 9th.      We arrived at beautiful Williston Crossings and began our rally with a social hour with light snacks at the pavilion at 4:00pm.  After social hour, we had a pot luck picnic with fried chicken and picnic side dishes.  We enjoyed the spaciousness of the pavilion and getting together again.  We ended our first evening with a Corn hole competition with tonight’s winners looking forward to a playoff round tomorrow night!

Friday, April 10th.      Today most made the 25 mile drive to Dunnellon to take the “Singing River Tour.”  Captain Jon serenaded us as we explored the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers on a 40’ pontoon boat and learned about Florida’s fascinating ecosystem.  We spotted exotic birds, turtles, and even a gator.

Lunch at the “Blue Gator Restaurant” in Dunnellon followed.  All agreed it was a great day trip!  Back at Williston, supper was a Pizza Party with Ceasar Salad and other salads and desserts.  We had a book and magazine exchange so we could get some new reading material.  The championship Corn hole competition was held with the Van Fleet’s emerging as winners!  Their prize?  Five tickets in tomorrow’s 50/50 drawing.

Williston is a great CG for hiking to the quarry, or for a bike ride through the park.  We gathered at the Activities Building at 4:30pm for our first ever “Suncoast Auction.”  We had great participation with buyers and sellers earning tickets into the 50/50 drawing.  The 50/50 drawing was won by the Griffins who received $65.00, with a like amount going into the club’s treasury!  Dinner was at the “Ivy House” restaurant in Williston.  Not wanting the day to end, many gathered around the host’s coach for campfire chat and games after we returned to camp.

ORLANDO TIFFIN ALLEGRO CLUB RALLY

Report By: Sally Moore
Rally: Central Florida Fair Grounds

MARCH 23-27, 201

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Tiffin Allegro Club hosted our first rally of 2015 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, Florida on March 23-27th.  We were fortunate to enjoy beautiful weather with sunny skies and gentle breezes all week after a slightly damp start on Monday.  The rally was staffed with folks from Red Bay as well as a host of WONDERFUL volunteers!  We simply could not host a rally like this without the help of our hard working, energetic volunteers!

These people come in a day or two before everyone else and work hard to mark parking sites, check-in coaches, greet everyone and get them registered and parked on arrival day. Throughout the week they ran golf cart shuttles, helped serve meals, sold apparel, assisted with seminars and made themselves invaluable to everyone.  The best kept secret is:  “They have more fun than anyone!”  Our volunteers pay the same rally fee as everyone, then stay busier than everyone, meet more new friends than everyone else and WE LOVE THEM!

We had 250 coach owners parked on the fairgrounds along with several vendors’ coaches and display of beautiful new Tiffin Motorhomes by LaMesa RV, Sanford, Florida for approximately 275 total motorhomes.  This was a “Buddy Rally” and friends driving another brand of motorhomes were also welcomed to experience the Tiffin lifestyle.

After all coaches were parked, slides out and awnings extended, guests were greeted with a “Welcome Bag” packed with goodies from the Tiffin Allegro Club and others.  One person said unpacking her bag was just like Christmas morning!

On Monday night, guests were treated to a delicious meal catered by Maddy with Professional Catering, Inc.  Again, volunteers stepped forward to see that guests were quickly served and greeted with a smile!   After dinner, Tom & Pat Webber, our official “Bingo Experts” explained the rules for Tiffin Allegro Bingo.  Prizes were awarded after much fun and laughter.

A few hardy souls rose very early Tuesday morning for our daily Tiffin “Walk for a Healthier You” led by Joanne Brown.  But, everyone rolled out of their beds in time to enjoy a bountiful country style breakfast.

Immediately after the meal, seminars on RV related topics began. Classes on Convection Microwave Cooking, Caring for the Exterior of Your RV, Towing, Motorhome Insurance, and many other topics were covered.

A parade saluting our veterans was held Tuesday afternoon.  Golf carts gaily decorated in red, white and blue bunting with marching music blaring followed Old Glory presented by veteran, John Frederiksen.  Veterans from various military branches participated in the parade.

A treat for all of us was veteran and Tiffin owner, A. H. Maher, dressed in his uniform.  Mr. Maher, 82 years young, was headed up the east coast after our rally to attend a Rangers reunion!  Thank you for your service, Mr. Maher and all veterans!!!  Because of your sacrifice, we can enjoy the freedom and blessing of touring our beautiful country and gathering together with friends as events such as this.

Following the parade Hearthside Grove RV Resort graciously hosted an ice cream social for everyone complete with sprinkles (because all our owners are winners) and whipped cream!  This was a great opportunity to visit with one another and share travel experiences.  Thank you, Hearthside Grove!!

As always it was wonderful to have Bob and Judy Tiffin join us for the rally.   Everyone always enjoys visiting with the Tiffins.  They are legendary in the RV industry.  Their southern charm and graciousness are unmatched.

On Tuesday night, people began gathering in the large conference hall dressed in tie-dyed shirts and bell bottoms!  It was time for “A 60’s Experience!”   After another delicious buffet meal, we were treated to music by the band, “Yesterdaze”.

This musical group carried us on a 60’s journey playing hit songs by a variety of artists.  Everyone loved to get back in the groove!  Drawings for door prizes were held and many folks were excited to have the winning ticket for “Tiffin Allegro Stuff”!   Prizes were also awarded to the grooviest 60’s outfits.  Great participation by some really ‘cool dudes’!

Wednesday brought another busy day with seminars and tours of the beautiful new Tiffin products.   A big shout of “thanks” to LaMesa RV for their help and sponsorship of our rally.  Several attendees made their dream come true with the purchase of a new coach while enjoying the rally!

Purchasers of coaches were recognized each evening and presented with a gift basket from the Tiffin Allegro Club.  This rally’s basket was a “Made in Alabama” basket featuring delicious items all made within the great state of Alabama – just like your Tiffin Motorhome!

A new rally feature we have recently added is our Owners’ Forum discussion.  Participation and attendance was overwhelming!  Great ideas were shared, including “50 Ways to Solve Black Water Odor!”  Future rallies will include forums divided into smaller groups with a common theme for discussion.

Our catering team fed the group mouth-watering grilled burgers and ‘dawgs’ with all of the trimmings for lunch.  Once again, we left the tables with a smile and maybe just a dab of mustard remaining.

Wednesday afternoon found many ladies and a few men participating in our traditional Afternoon Tea Party.  Refreshments were served, but the highlight of the event is the sharing of stories and experiences.

Once again the group gathered for a delicious dinner Wednesday evening served by our fantastic volunteers.  Door prizes were awarded with lots of Tiffin “stuff” again being handed out.  Everyone then was treated to a great show, Spectacular Magic & Illusions featuring Al Belmont.  The salute to America at the end was a crowd favorite.

Knowing the end of the rally was fast approaching, Thursday morning found everyone once again enjoying a big country style breakfast. Seminars concluded at noon on Thursday, then everyone turned out to experience the Tiffin Allegro Club Swap Meet.

Tables were provided and anyone interested in swapping/bartering/trading their treasures for another’s treasures enjoyed the time together.  A wide variety of items were available as you could imagine.  There were bargains galore to be found.

A gala buffet dinner featuring roasted turkey, ham and carved roast beef was served Thursday night by our wonderful volunteers.  More “stuff” was awarded to many lucky winners!

After dinner everyone enjoyed vocalist, Connor Lorre.  Connor interacted with the crowd and entertained the group with his tributes to many artists through the decades such as Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Elvis just to name a few.  Great show!

During the rally, attendees were fortunate to receive minor repairs and service on their motorhomes from a great group of technicians!  Gary James, Terry Ray, Roger Holland and Rusty Holland from the Tiffin plant in Red Bay were joined by four technicians from LaMesa RV in Sanford.

Together this team of expert service technicians worked long hours every day to insure each coach at the rally received their help with the owner’s top three issues. Sometimes the technicians’ abilities were limited by the availability of parts on hand, but if the job could be accomplished with the coach parked outside in a grassy field, then these guys could make it happen. They are truly the rock stars of our rally!  A great big thank you to each one of these hard working men!!

Friday morning saw everyone hooking up tows and heading on to their next adventure.  Again, a precious volunteer, Carolyn Mitchell, was there to wave everyone good-bye and wish them “Happy Trails!”  So ‘until we meet again…..’, keep enjoying your beautiful Tiffin rig, travel safe, and experience the open road with all that life offers!  All of us at Tiffin Allegro Club and Tiffin Motorhomes enjoyed our time together and thank you for being a part of the Tiffin family.
