Over 1,000 visitors expected to attend four-day event
North Bend, Ore. – An expected 1,000 visitors and their RVs will be rolling into town beginning June 19 as The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park hosts the annual Northwest Area Rally of the Family Motor Coach Association.
This will be the first time the national organization will hold its Northwest Rally on Oregon’s South Coast. The event is scheduled for June 21-24, but organizers say that their members customarily arrive two days early. Although the event is open to FMCA members only, a vendor show and display of RV coaches is open to the public.
“To be a member of the FMCA is to be someone who loves to travel and to visit new and interesting locations,” said Larry Close, general manager of The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park. “Hosting this event is a great opportunity for The Mill, but it is an even greater opportunity to present all of the attractions of our communities to visitors from throughout the Pacific Northwest who definitely love to travel.”
The Mill has planned a variety of activities for rally participants including a poker run to shops and local venues in North Bend and Coos Bay. Tours of local attractions will be available to give visitors a taste of what the region has to offer.
Rally participants will be encouraged to visit area restaurants for one evening’s meal. A second evening will have members of the Coquille Indian Tribe demonstrating native cooking techniques and discussing Tribal culture at a traditional salmon bake.
