  1. Cincinnati, OH — FMCA, a Cincinnati-based international association for RV owners, has announced the dates and locations for its conventions in 2019. FMCA will be making a return visit to a popular venue for the association’s 99th International Convention and RV Expo — the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter in Perry, Georgia. The March 13 through 16, 2019, gathering will mark the 11th convention FMCA has hosted at this middle Georgia facility, which FMCA leaders describe as tailor-made for an FMCA event. “We haven’t hosted a convention at the same venue two years in a row since the early days of FMCA. So, this is a bit of a departure from the norm, but Perry is such a fantastic facility and meets our needs so well that we have decided to go back there next year. Meanwhile, we’ll be exploring other potential locations for future winter/spring events,” FMCA national president Jon Walker said. The location of the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter, just off Interstate 75, and the usual timing of the gathering, as many snowbirds are heading back home, play a role in the success the association has with events held at this facility. A number of the group’s largest events have taken place there, most recently in March 2018. “The staff at the fairgrounds are great to work with,” noted FMCA executive director Chris Smith. “And the facility has made substantial improvements over the years to help accommodate FMCA events, including adding roadways and drainage in RV parking areas. Not only that, but the community rolls out the red carpet to welcome FMCA families. So, we’re looking forward to being in Perry again next year,” he said. Summer 2019 will find FMCA members in the “Magic City” — Minot, North Dakota. RVers will gather at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds August 14 through 17, 2019, to celebrate a milestone in the association’s history — FMCA’s 100th International Convention and RV Expo. “FMCA has hosted conventions at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds three times in the past, most recently in 2005; so, this will be a long overdue return visit,” said FMCA events director Doug Uhlenbrock. “Minot offers a small-town feel with big-town amenities and attractions and will make a great destination for this special celebration of FMCA’s 100th convention.” Registration for the Perry, Georgia, convention will begin on September 12, 2018; registration for the Minot, North Dakota, convention will begin on February 13, 2019. RVers need not wait until 2019 to join the fun. Registrations currently are being accepted for FMCA’s 98th International Convention and RV Expo, set to take place July 18 through 21, 2018, at CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities in Gillette, Wyoming. RVers who sign up before May 23 receive early-bird pricing and save $30 off the gate registration fee. Various registration options are offered. FMCA international conventions include an RV Expo that showcases the latest RV models, as well as booths filled with RV-related accessories, components, and supplies, plus companies offering services RVers need and want. When they aren’t shopping, attendees can take part in seminars about topics ranging from RV driving and towing tips to microwave-convection cooking and satellite television for RVs. Approximately 100 different sessions are held, so plenty of educational opportunities present themselves. A variety of entertainment options are offered as well.

  5. FMCA Website

    Hey all just wanted to let you know that I was working in the FMCA Data Center on Saturday and had a few hiccups which resulted in having to take all of the servers down at one time. I was able to get them back up pretty quickly. I was attempting a server swap out without taking down the entire server farm but was unable to do so. I apologize for any down time that you may have experienced. Also just to note we are aware of the slowness of the fmca.com website and this is being addressed in the new website build.

    Extended LTE is included in the plan unlimited this does not go against your roaming. See clip from Sprint page.

    The sprint plan through FMCA is getting a lot of attention. The truly Unlimited aspect of the plan seems to be really beneficial to the current users of the plan. There are users that have exceeded 80gb of usage and have not been networked managed. PLease review the Map below to see the 3G/4G/LTE/extended LTE Coverage that sprint can provide.

    I will say that the above pictures only show 4G coverage. The maps do not show the extended LTE that is available. Below you can see the coverage included with sprint covering 3G/4G/LTE/ExtendedLTE. When the term truly unlimited is used in the plan it really means truly Unlimited.
