Full Timers Chapter Rolling Rally 2020

5 Stops - Each stop will also be listed separately

DECEMBER 1, 2020 - JANUARY 7, 2021

Join the Fulltimers Chapter at every stop, or meet us for just part of this Southern California Winter Cooperative Rolling Rally from Death Valley National Park south to San Diego and East to Yuma, AZ.

We will make 5 stops in 36 days. We will visit 3 National Parks before exploring the bright lights of Hollywood and the deep harbor of San Diego. We will end in Yuma, AZ to chill before deciding whether to attend the Arizona Chapter’s annual Quartzsite, AZ rally or go our separate ways.

Cooperative rolling rallies give all attendees the chance to contribute to the success of each rally stop as hosts, co-hosts, activity leaders, etc. Some stops will have a volunteer host before the rally starts while others will have a Temporary Point of Contact until volunteers step forward.

If you are willing to host a stop on this Cooperative Rolling Rally, contact Donna Carmon, fritored@gmail.com, 405-209-5001.
