FMCA 92nd International Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase Rally -Alliant Center - Madison, WI

On July 27 we arrived in Madison, Wisconsin to attend the Family Motor Coach Association's 92nd Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase Rally at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, with an assortment of over 1,600 motorhomes.  Upon arrival, the impression one gets is organized chaos, but through the experienced help of the FMCA organization headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, hundreds of volunteers from FMCA chapters throughout the U.S., and hundreds of commercial vendors in the RV industry, a four day packed program took place for thousands of people from all over the U.S. and Canada.

If you ever have an opportunity to visit Madison, the State Capitol of Wisconsin, there are so many activities to do and see.  Madison is the second largest city in Wisconsin, located in the south central part of the state is surrounded by 4 lakes.  The beautiful State Capitol, we were told, is the tallest capitol in the United States with the exception of The U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.  Along with the University of Wisconsin facilities and the various government buildings, the city is always filled with activity, and I might add, many people riding bicycles in the streets as well as miles of trails.

 We were busy during the Rally with our own organizational activity as well as finding an orthopedic doctor to examine the progress of my wrist injury.  In May, after we accepted the opportunity to present my class, we began planning our trip to Madison. For several years, I've presented Attitude Adjustment - it's FUN art, not FINE art, at the Florida Grande Motorcoach Resort, Webster, FL, and will also be offering it at the Spring FMCA Rally at the Georgia State Fairgrounds in Perry, GA. in March, 2016.  According to the students, the classes were most enjoyable. RV was our class photographer - I couldn't have done it without him!!
