RVers, Start Your Engines; Daytona Beach, Florida, Selected to Host 2006 Rally

REDMOND, Ore., July 14 /PRNewswire/ — The event that has been known for several years as the Great North American RV Rally is simplifying itself. Beginning in 2006, the event coordinators will refer to it as “The Rally,” and what better place to jump-start their new image than in Daytona Beach, Florida?

Daytona Motor Speedway, and its annual race, the Daytona 500, became a third-year recipient of the Good Sam Club Welcome Mat Award for being the most RV-friendly NASCAR event in 2005. To express their gratitude, Rally event coordinators chose Daytona Beach, Florida, for the 2006 gathering hosted by the Good Sam Club, Camping World President’s Club, Coast to Coast Resorts, Woodall’s and MotorHome and Trailer Life magazines.

The Rally will be held April 7-10, 2006, and will feature an incredible lineup of activities, contests, seminars and entertainers for all participants.

This year’s Rally is wrapping up today in Redmond, Oregon. While there, RVers have enjoyed such events as the construction of the World’s Largest S’more, Oreo stacking contests, a dog show, valuable seminars and nightly entertainment.

“We had a fantastic turnout this year in Redmond,” said Rally Director Bev Dalton. “It’s very encouraging to see so many people making the journey from every state and even from Canada to come to our event. We had nearly 100 RVs come from Florida alone, so we are expecting an even greater turnout for the 2006 Rally.”

Known for being the home of NASCAR and the “World Center of Racing,” Daytona Beach offers visitors much more than fast cars and white, sandy beaches. Historic attractions, such as the Main Street Pier, Oceanfront Boardwalk and the Clocktower in Oceanfront Park add to the city’s ambience and world-class restaurants can be found throughout. Additionally, Daytona Beach is also home to the new Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) as well as the Halifax Harbor Marina.

The Good Sam Club, Camping World President’s Club, Coast to Coast Resorts, Woodall’s and MotorHome and Trailer Life magazines host the Rally.
