Corporate Sponsors Support Fulltime Families Colonial Times Rally

Kimberly No Comments

For Immediate Release

The upcoming Colonial Times Rally is kicking off this September with the support of multiple corporate sponsors.

 

MORryde Logo Square RGB (3)MOR/ryde, the fabricator and innovator of many custom solutions, including the MOR/ryde Independant Suspension System, has been named the Cuisine Sponsor for both the Colonial Times Pie Contest and the FtF Annual Family Reunion Cuisine Event (theme to be announced later this year).

This is MOR/ryde’s first foray into FtF Event Sponsorship and club co-founder Kimberly Travaglino is excited to see the company supporting the full-time family RVing community.  “As full-time rving families, our whole lives are riding on the foundation of our campers.  We are thrilled to be able to enter into partnership with MOR/ryde at these upcoming events, so we can stress the importance of a solid suspension system.  This summer, we had our ISS with disc brakes installed and the difference in our handling is night and day” Travaglino commented regarding this partnership.

Marketplace-RVTRader-LogoMOR/ryde joins long time FtF Event sponsors, RV Trader, who is hosting the Parade of Homes for both the Colonial Times Rally and the FtF Annual Family Reunion.  RV Trader has been exceedingly supportive of the FtF Community, and even provides an exclusive discount to FtF Families looking to list their RVs on the site’s extensive ad platform, with nationwide coverage and great search attributes to help narrow down listings for potential buyers.  The FtF Parade of Homes is unique to FtF Rallies and gives attendees an opportunity to explore each others homes on wheels, highlighting modifications, layouts, upgrades and unique storage solutions.

letsrv-logo-200Let’s RV, also a long time FtF supporter, is hosting the Themed Trivia Contest.  Attendees are advised to brush up on their Colonial History knowledge as this year’s trivia contest is sure to cull many questions from that time period.

“The Fulltime Families rallies are exceptional events and I really look forward to attending them whenever I can,” said Greg Gerber, editor of RV Daily Report and Let’s RV. “When these very active, year-round RVing families come together it’s guaranteed to be a wild-and-crazy time, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to learn from the RV lifestyle evangelists.
“The people attending these rallies interact with tens of thousands of other RVers throughout the year as they travel the country working on the road and roadschooling their children. It’s a great way for me to get a pulse on what’s happening in the industry from an RV owner’s perspective,” he added. “The education provided at these events isn’t based on theory. The products, services and businesses they recommend to others are based on the members’ practical experience with the companies.”
Store_Logo_FASS_2013UPDATE:
FASS Fuel, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket diesel fuel pump and accessories for light duty and heavy duty diesel engines, has signed on at the Main Event Sponsor for both the Colonial Times Rally and the upcoming 7th Annual FtF Family Reunion (FL, Winter 2017).  Family Reunion attendees will be able to witness this fuel system in action at the FASS Mobile is slated to attend the event and educate attendees on the importance and benefits of these aftermarket fuel pumps.
YBCRSCol.HiResJellystone Park Camp and Resorts is also sponsoring two events on the Fulltime Families calendar.  With a focus on family fun, it’s no surprise that Jellystone will be bringing fun to FtF Events as the Family Highlight Game Sponsor.  The Colonial Times Highlight Game is a homemade boat river crossing complete with it’s own General Washington, motivating boaters across river.
Here is the list of Sponsors helping to the upcoming Fulltime Families Events to fruition!  We thank you for supporting these activities and learning opportunities!

 

We are currently seeking sponsors in the following market segments:

  • RV Dealerships
  • Camping Equipment Suppliers
  • Technology for RVers
  • Anything that makes RVing families lives easy

If you’d like more information or to sponsor an activity at these events and reach this growing market, email kimberly@fulltimefamilies.com

Jan. 24th – 28th, 30 families attended the 2013 Fulltime Families Winter Family Reunion.

[youtube cJVllZ9Qynw]

On Thursday, we started with a Journal Making Craft for all ages, so kids could collect autographs and contact information from their soon to be new friends.

Kids’ Craft – Making Journals

Then it was time to party until we were purple, or many various colors as the tie-dying began.  Kids turned plain white shirts into stunning one of a kind pieces of artwork, and the Highway Hounds tie-dyed their sheet for the highly anticipated “teens vs everyone else” kick ball game the next day.

Tie-Dying Fun!

 

At dinner time, we all met up for the Meet and Greet Pizza Party, sponsored in part by Chicks Connect.  

And then kids and adults alike went head to head in our Family USA Trivia Game, sponsored by Wright on Time Books. 

 

On Friday morning, our Appoholics (people addicted to apps) were out in full force to share breakfast and their favorite tablet / smart phone apps.  

 

After getting downloaded and fueled up, everyone hit the field for the Highway Hounds First Annual Homecoming Kickball game, where the hounds exercised their dominance with a score of 102 to 2 (according to their coach, Kimber Sparks).

After a short break for lunch, the day continued with a Roadschool Curriculum Convention, a Girls’ Beauty Parlor Party, and a Boys’ Scavenger Hunt.

Beautiful little fairies!

 

Everyone worked up a ferocious appetite for Steak Night, where grill masters cooked steaks to order and everyone brought salads, appetizers and desserts to share. 

 

That night, the kids enjoyed a movie by moonlight, while adults were able to share some grown up time around the campfire.

 

Saturday dawned to a Boondockers Breakfast, as guest speaker Marianne Edwards, of frugal-rving.com, shared her vast knowledge on dry camping with all the rally attendees.  

 

At noon, it was time for the Parade of Homes, when we get the opportunity to tour each others rv’s and see what mods / upgrades and great ideas we can steal from each other.

After a quick wardrobe change, the Family Talent Show, sponsored by Fodeo RV Frames began with talented family members delighting the crowd!

At 6pm we headed to the Ugly Sweater Social / Pot Luck Party and then played a rousing game of FtF Let’s Make Deal, sponsored by Workamper News where FtF’s won prizes like a TV/DVD Combo, free stays at surrounding rv parks, and even a racing package from Competition 101.

On Sunday morning, rally attendees got a sneak peek into what Fulltime Families has planned for 2013.  From more community building activities, to our summer rally and other meet ups around the country, we have a ton of stuff planned and hope your family will be involved!

 

We want to thank all our sponsors, our volunteers, and guests.  The 2013 Winter Rally was a huge success as a result of your efforts and eagerness to make this the best family rving event of the winter!
