CINCINNATI, Ohio — Family Motor Coach Association is pleased to announce revised dates for FMCA’s 87th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase, to be held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The new dates for this event will be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Aug. 27, 28, 29 and 30, 2012, with family parking days on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25 and 26, 2012.
This will be FMCA’s first international convention at this location and the fourth FMCA international event in Indiana. The last time FMCA met in Indiana was in 1991, at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend for the 46th convention of the association.
“We are extremely pleased that the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds was able to work with us in moving our Family Reunion to August dates in 2012,” said Judy Czarsty, FMCA national senior vice president/acting national president. The change of dates was necessary due to the changeover to the new model year for many motorhome manufacturers during the first week of July. “It would have been a challenge for many of our commercial members to bring sales representatives, service technicians, and support staff to Indianapolis in early July.”
A host of activities are already in the works for this late August Reunion. Racing enthusiasts may experience the “Endurocross Race” at the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ Pepsi Coliseum on Friday evening, August 24, as well as “IndyMile Motorcycle Race” on the mile track of the fairgrounds’ grandstand Saturday afternoon and evening. The “Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show” will take place in the Exposition Hall that same weekend.
“Members have asked for things to do once they arrive for our Reunions," Mrs. Czarsty said. "These are great events available for our members to attend at the 250 acre Fairgrounds. Indianapolis is known as the Racing Capital of the World and this weekend truly gives our members a flavor of that!" Additional admission fees may apply for these events.

We look forward to seeing you at FMCA’ 87th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase in Indianapolis, Indiana!
