It's that time again! My team and I are looking forward to seeing each of you at the 2018 RV Convention. We are believing God to move in big ways during our time together.
Once again, the convention will be held at the Lake Williamson Christian Center in Carlinville, Illinois.
If this is your first time to attend the national RV convention, please join us for the 1st general session on Saturday, September 29th, from 2:00-4:00 in the auditorium. You will meet the national U.S. MAPS team, as well as receive information that will help you not only this week, but through the rest of the year. All current & prospective RVers are invited encouraged as well! We also include a time for Q&A.
The annual tool show will be held on Wednesday from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. If you've never participated in the tool show, you will want to bring your money!(they also take cards) Team Tools will bring their new tools to display and sell. This is a great time to pick up new equipment.
The auction is on Wednesday morning. If you'd like to include something in the auction, please bring usable and sellable items as a donation to auditorium on Tuesday evening. If your item is valuable, please include a written description. The proceeds from the auction helps to further the RV ministry around the United States. I am blown away by the generosity of our people! Seriously—pies have sold for $600!
It is our goal to make this week a highlight of your year. Below is some helpful information as you plan to attend this year's convention. If you have any questions, please contact the U.S. MAPS office at (417) 862–2781, ext. 1391, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you in Illinois!
The dress code for the convention is casual for the duration of the convention. However, we do have a few fun nights where you'll want to dress up!
Monday evening is our super hero night. This is a fun theme evening, so bring out your super apparel! Biblical or otherwise.
