Greater Midwest Classics

2011 Rallies and Events


Hosts: John & Wanda Parker

Dates: July 13-17, 2011 

Location: Alexander Ramsey Park, Redwood Falls, MN

The July Rally was held in Redwood Falls, MN on July 13-July 17. Hosts were John and Wanda Parker, along with help from the Glenna's, Millers and many others who pitched in and helped with various duties. Although that area was hit hard by the severe July 1 windstorm, the city and power crews had most of the trees cut and removed and had the power restored. The Parker's had planned this rally for over a year, as the schedule included the annual car show at Belview, a small town several miles from the campground. Belview was also hit hard by the storm, but the GMC club was welcomed with open arms. Thirteen coaches traveled to Belview to be part of the car show, and a lot of interest was shown by the people about the GMC coach. The local Legion served an excellent lunch, and a hay ride throughout the town was available to show some of the storm damage and other highlites of the town. Our thanks go out to the Parkers for putting together such a great rally.


Date: May 13-15, 2011

Location: Cushon's Peak Campground, Houston, MN

The 20th Anniversary rally of the club was held May 13-15 at Cushon's Peak campground in Houston, MN. Al Talbot from FMCA awarded the Greater Midwest Classics with a 20 year Anniversary certificate. The group toured the Norsland Lefse factory in Rushford Friday morning where breakfast was served. Saturday afternoon there was a tour of a round barn. Saturday morning was the breakfast-in-a-bag and a catered meal on Saturday night. A good time was had by all.


Dates: September 9-14, 2011

Location: Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen, IN

The September rally was held at Goshen IN in conjunction with the GMC International convention. There was a good showing of Midwest classics members at the convention. The Midwest Classics members were also invited to join the Great Lakers motorhome club after the GMCMI convention, for the Great Lakers rally at Ludington, MI. After Ludington, the board of the Midwest Classics had put together a rolling rally into upper Michigan and upper Wisconsin. All in all, a very fun time.
