This will be a full day (7:30 AM to approx. 5:00 PM) of museums, monuments, lunch and other places of interest. DOAI member Jerry Brown will be on the bus, giving you some facts that only can come from someone who has lived in the OK area for years.

The National Memorial and Museum is the 1st museum of the day. If you’ve never been inside the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, or it has been years since your last visit, it’s definitely worth a stop. And the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial honors the victims, survivors, rescuers and all who were changed forever on April 19, 1995.

There were 7 total land runs that took place in Oklahoma, beginning with the initial and most famous Land Run of April 22, 1889, so a stop at this monument for some great photo shoots is a must. Lunch will be on you own in the Bricktown area.

At the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum you will be welcomed by Buffalo Bill. This statue has been located at the museum since 1977 and serves as a tribute to the West and the Man who embodied this spirit. Experience the history and artistic beauty of American’s story as it unfolds across the West.

2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Discovery Owners Association. The anniversary celebration begins at the Southeast Region Rally at Lazydays RV Campground in Seffner, FL, on Sunday, January 28th. This rally includes the 8th consecutive presentation of Camp Discovery as well as many major rally events for those not interested in the technical seminars of Camp Discovery.

The “Start The Celebration” rally will be hosted by the Mason-Dixon Discovery chapter. Chapter members have already begun plans to put on a special celebration to kick off the anniversary year. Here is what you can expect:

  • Six nights of camping
  • Complementary breakfast and lunch at Lazydays Front Porch Café
  • Four catered meals
  • Three nights of entertainment
  • Technical and non-technical seminars
  • “Geeks on Tour” for seminars and help desk
  • Crafts and projects
  • Vendors
  • Pet parade
  • Golf
  • 2018 Discovery display with lunch, entertainment, and prizes at General RV
  • Complementary Florida sunshine!

Click HERE for a TENTATIVE rally schedule (PDF document). This will give you a good idea of what is planned. Please understand it is early in the planning and there will be changes. It is likely major events like Vendor Day, Golf Outing, and the day at General RV will not change. We expect to add more non-technical seminars and craft sessions.

Rally cost have increased at Lazydays but the DOAI board agreed to off-set the cost by fifty dollars per coach to keep the price down so that as many of you as possible can attend this rally. It is unlikely you will be able to attend another six-night Southeast Rally with the number of catered meals and entertainment at this low price.

Lazydays has set aside 120 sites for rally attendees. Submit your registration now to ensure you get a site. Approximately 50 reservations were submitted by members attending the 2017 rally so don’t delay. We expect to fill all 120 sites. Don’t miss this very special Southeast Region Rally!
