Welcome to California Chapter, Family Motor Coach Association
California Chapter is part of the Family Motor Coach Association. Just two years after FMCA was formed, a small group of motor home owners formed the California Chapter. This makes the California Chapter one of the oldest chapters in FMCA.
California Chapter (CCFMCA) is the fourth oldest chapter within FMCA and the first chapter west of the Mississippi. We were chartered in June 1965 by a group of 36 motor homes. At one point our Chapter had over 1,600 motor homes. Over the years a lot has changed and there are now over 52 chapters in California alone. We celebrated our 50th year in 2015.
We usually have five to seven rallies a year and they are typically held on the third week-end of the month. Our rallies start on Thursday and end on Sunday. We go as far south as San Diego and north as far as Buellton. Our average attendance is about 32 coaches.
Our Chapter also hosts one of the largest Chapter rallies in the Western Area. It’s called Oktoberfest and is held at Golden Village in Hemet. This rally is loads of fun and we invite other FMCA chapters and/or members to join us. The events include hot dogs, beer, wine, soda on Friday and Saturday, German Polka Music, seminars, vendors, crafts, catered meals, live evening entertainment and dancing, $250 blackout bingo, games and much more. This rally is held the first weekend of October each year.
CCFMCA has a membership made up of wonderful people. These are the folks that you love to sit around a campfire and swap stories with, or enjoy an early morning cup of coffee. These are the kind of people that makeup our Chapter, and this is where lifelong friendships occur. We invite you to join us.
