Rallies & Events
Come Have Fun With Us!
Rallies, Rolling Rallies and Caravans are the main events by which our Club promotes travel, entertainment and camaraderie for our members. These events are what builds friendships which become part of the bond that holds the Club together and gives it purpose. They are also great opportunities to see different areas of our country and to learn about these areas and the people who live and work there. And it's not just the rallies that are enriching opportunities, it's the journey there and back.
The Club offers several rallies each year and periodic caravans. Members may attend as many events as they wish, pending availability. A Club member from any region may attend a rally or caravan in any of the other regions. You must be a member in good standing of the Born Free Leap'n Lions RV Club in order to register for and attend any of the club-sponsored rallies or caravans.
The Club sponsors three different types of events:
- Fixed Base Rally: This is the type of rally you usually think of. It takes place over several days in one campground. There is usually a theme and there are activities and group meals scheduled for every day. There is also time for you to explore the area and do what you'd like to do. Transportation to group activities is often arranged so generally you don't have to worry about bringing your toad. These can be regional or national in appeal.
- Rolling Rally: This is a hybrid of a Fixed Base Rally and a Caravan. It lasts several days and has scheduled activities, meals and free time. However, it starts in one campground, then proceeds to one or more campgrounds. A Rolling Rally typically lasts a few days.
- Caravan: This activity takes places over several weeks and can cover several thousand miles. Caravaners spend 1-3 nights in a campground, then move on to the next. There are scheduled activities, meals and free-time, and transportation to group activities is often arranged. There's often time en route from one campground to the next to do things on your own. There's usually a wagon master (picture Ward Bond) and a tail-gunner, who is the last to leave and checks for those who might have encountered difficulties en route.
