We are going back to the Sun ’n Fun venue for the FMCA SEA rally. We were last there in 2017. As many of you may know this rally is a bit different than other Leap’n Lions rallies as it is piggybacked onto the FMCA Southeast Area Rally.

Organizing our participation as a Leap’n Lion rally enables us to park together at the rally site. We will add a few activities of our own such as a potluck dinner and our daily afternoon social gathering. We also have planned an offsite outing at the best strawberry shortcake venue in Florida… the nearby famous Parksdale Market ( Many of you may know this is Dean Preston’s favorite place. He has given us his secret tip to getting the most strawberries. Order the Strawberry Shortcake without the shortcake.

The registration for this rally is done directly with You can register by downloading and printing out this rally registration form for mail in by clicking on the 2019 SEA Lakeland, FL Rally Registration Form.pdf located as an attachment directly below on the left side of this posting window. The registration form is also available at ... onForm.pdf. Or you can register online at the FMCA website, or by calling FMCA at 1-800-543-3622. Please note that you should elect ‘Dry Camping/unlimited’ or if registering online it is called general parking (generator 7 AM-11 PM) as your site choice. Those registering must advise your rally host ( so that a participant list can be assembled to let FMCA SEA know how many of us (coaches) need to be accommodated for parking at the rally’s campsite. Be sure you register as soon as possible as campsites are limited and we wish to ensure that we are all camped together. You do not have to be an FMCA member to attend.

This list also enables the host to check that all have gathered at the holding area for the rally. This is in the holding area field in front of the main entrance to Sun ’n Fun Expo Center. We will then be guided to our parking/campsite location. We should meet there on Tuesday February 5th at 11 am. The official FMCA SEA publicity states that the rally starts on the 6th but if we arrive on the 6th you will miss the events scheduled for that day.

The potluck dinner will be on Tuesday February 5th. Please bring a dish to share and enjoy that time of fellowship to kick off the rally. Your Hosts are supplying the main meat. There will be a nominal per person charge to cover the cost of the dinner meat, paper supplies et al., and the wine for the potluck dinner. We will collect this at the rally. The cost for the dry camping sites is $195, and after January 15th, 2019 the cost goes up to $205. These costs and others are noted on the FMCA registration form.

Our strawberry shortcake outing is planned for Saturday. The plan is to coach and/or car pool there and be back at our campsite well in time for the scheduled evening entertainment. Participants will be responsible for the cost of their indulgences.

If you plan on attending please call Joel & Sandy Lefkowitz or email us at Please include 2019 FMCA SEA rally in your e-mail subject line.

We strongly suggest that you arrive at the holding area with your fuel and fresh water tanks full. Fresh water is available at the facility but probably not very convenient. There is a sewer dump available.

We are looking forward to many of our old and new friends joining us.

Respectfully submitted,

Joel & Eric
