    I have a dumb question. Are we using the TDC website for discussions or the RV Village website? I think the club needs to decided which website will be used for discussions. That way a member doesn't need to go to both sites to see whats going on.

      Jack & Karen Arnold We have 3 places where members can communicate, TDC Forum, Facebook, and RVillage.  It would be nice if everyone could settle on one site but some like Facebook, some do not use Facebook and never will.  Some like our Forum (my favorite) but we ...  more

      Gisela and Ken I like the Forum for discussion and RV Village to keep in touch with and meet new friends.
    • TPM
      TPM There is nothing wrong with RV Village, but when we are discussing TDC matters or items such as FMCA allowing towables,  it should probably should be discussed on the TDC site not RV Village since the TDC site is for TDC members only and not more or ...  more

      Brian & Terry For those that have not explored our RVillage page the Group Forum button at the top of the page goes right to the TDC forum. So when ever you visit the RVillage page you can pop right over and see if there is any new activity in the Forum. Hide 1 Reply

      l1brass You can also setup RVillage to send you notices when there is activity so you don't have to check it everyday just when there is activity! :) Hide 1 Reply

    Here's a chance to connect with your fellow TDC members! We've seen quite a few Palazzos, Mandalays and Tuscanys parked here at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. A TDC get-together is planned for Saturday afternoon (July 15) at 3 pm in the Ag Building, Seminar 7.

    Below is the FMCA press release on the towable proposal. Reading it you will see that it is ultimately up to a vote of the entire membership to make this happen. It failed 5 years ago. FYI

      Jay & Nancy The Governing Board voted to allow towables into FMCA today with 84% of the chapters represented voting FOR the proposal.  However, it won't be official until December when all FMCA members will have had an opportunity to vote on the change.

        Jay & Nancy The reason for opening FMCA to towables is to prevent FMCA from going down the drain!

      Jay & Nancy FMCA is not about the equipment. It's about people and family celebrating the RV lifestyle. This is a positive move for the organization.

      TPM I think everyone needs to know more about how FMCA is going to be structured before any vote is made.  Are there going to be separate rallies?   Combined rallies with coaches mixed in with trailers?   Are there going to be 2 magazines one f...  more Hide 1 Reply

        Jay & Nancy Thanks TPM for the good questions.  I agree that people need some details in order to make an informed vote.  FMCA will be structured as a united organization that includes all eligible members.  Every member will have the same benefits. &n...  more

      TPM In other words it will be another Good Sam except it will have one magazine instead of one for Motorhome and on for Towables.

        Jay & Nancy FMCA is a member run, not-for profit organization.  Good Sam, part of Camping World, is a shareholder owned, for-profit corporation.  Perhaps that makes a difference in goals and objectives.
