Greater Midwest Classics

The GMC Greater Midwest Classics motorhome club was formed in the Spring of 1991, and is a chapter of the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA). In the Fall of 1990, a group of Midwest area GMC owners were attending the GMC International convention at Mackinaw, MI. A sign was put up asking all the Minnesota GMC owners to meet with the idea of forming a Midwest area club. At this rather informal meeting, it was agreed to continue to pursue the forming of a Midwest area club.

In 1991, letters were sent out by Fritz Kruschel and Harold Neumann for the first rally, which was held at the KOA campground in Rogers, MN on May 11th and 12th, 1991. Those attending this rally were Al & Laurie Amsden, Wally & Phyllis Arntzen, Wayne & Viola Beek, Gayle & Reava Brodil, David & Debi Erickson, Conrad & Linda Freeman, Fritz & Elaine Kruschel, Bob & Carma LaCasse, Ron & Chris Larsen, Bob & Yvonne Miller and Harold & Fern Neumann. Wagonmasters were Fritz Kruschel and Harold Neumann. Officers elected at this meeting were; President, Fritz Kruschel; Vice President, Al Amsden; Secretary/Treasurer, Yvonne Miller. Dues were set at $5.00 per year.

The next rally was at Breezy Point, MN on June 28-30th, 1991 with Conrad and Linda Freeman as wagonmasters. At this rally the name of Greater Midwest Classics was chosen, and the area will include Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Manitoba and Ontario. Nebraska would be added at a later date. It was decided that the club would have three rally's per year, which has occurred since that time.

The club grew rapidly in the early '90's under the leadership of Fritz Kruschel. Today the club includes around 80 families, still meets for three rallies during the Midwest camping season, an occasional working rally, and typically gather for a holiday party.
