Defiance Tools Attends the FMCA Six State Rally!

Rich and I had the pleasure of attending the FMCA Six State Rally!

What is FMCA?

As we mentioned in an earlier blog Defiance Tools® and RV'ers? Yes, Please! – we discuss what FMCA stands for.

According the FMCA website, since 1963, they have issued more than 475,000 memberships to families who look to the association as their source of information about all facets of RV ownership and travel. One of the greatest benefits of FMCA membership, is the opportunity it provides for enjoying the fellowship of friends from all over the country who share a common interest, RVing. The Association is rich in the tradition of FMCA members extending hands of genuine friendship to one another with a lot of great music, food and products for RV'ers.

FMCA recognizes approximately 400 chapters across the United States and Canada. Many of them encompass specific or general geographic regions. Others consist of FMCA members who own a particular brand or model of RV. And still others are based on a common interest, such as music, sports, coach conversions or amateur radio.

FMCA members can be identified by the FMCA membership emblem, that many members display on their RV. This oval plate, embossed with the family's membership number, opens the door for many friendly encounters while traveling. 

RV Rally?

A RV Rally is an event where multiple RV owners get together in one location for all things RVing. It includes education, vendor shopping, entertainment with the main focus of camaraderie.

Earlier this year we attended the FMCA Rally in Perry, GA and also the Good Sam’s Rally in Okeechobee , FL. We realized after these 2 wonderful events that RV folks are a perfect customer for Defiance Tools. Most of our tools are compact and have multiple uses. RV’ers have small storage space and our tools fit that bill.

So, Rich and I packed up and started traveling to Shreveport, LA from our home base of Orlando, FL. The rally which was sponsored by the  South Central Area region which consists of Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas was located at the Louisiana State Fairgrounds. Defiance Tools had an indoor booth in the vendor area and we showcased a number of our multi tools, coffee tools and bar tools.

As it turns out the Louisiana State Fairgrounds has the Independence Stadium where the Independence Bowl is played every year. One of the nights of the rally there was a high school football game being played at the stadium. Who knew - but these high school teams (and the bands, mascots and cheerleaders) were all extremely impressive and could easily be mistaken for college teams!

We loved Louisiana. The food, the people, the rally were all fantastic and look forward to returning again soon.
