Winnebago and Friends Chapter was chartered in October of 2008 and functions in the geographical Great Lakes Area (GLA) of Michigan, Ontario, Ohio and Indiana. Our members also volunteer at our annual Area Rally and the National Rally when held in our area. As of February 2014 we currently have less than 30 member coaches and have many member coaches in attendance at our rallies. There are usually 5 to 6 monthly rallies a year presently held within the Great Lakes Area, beginning in May and continuing through September or October. Our Rallies promote fellowship, social activities, good food, area events and tours. Rallies are typically held between Monday and Thursday unless specific events or activities require a weekend, where our rally would then start on a Friday and end on Sunday. Some of us will arrive early or extend up to a day or two as there are always many activities in our rally areas. Rally costs have typically ranged from as little as $75.00 to $150.00 per coach and include camping and some meals depending on venue.
