Lucky 13: Open House Rally Recap
Super Bowl weekend marked the 13th Annual Liberty Coach Open House Rally in Stuart, and for the 35 Liberty Coach owners and 3 guests who were lucky enough to attend, it was a super experience from beginning to end.
The theme was Mardi Gras, which seemed particularly appropriate on one of the wetter opening nights we could remember. Not to worry, though. While outside Florida was showing off how hard it could rain, the party inside was plenty hot, thanks to some excellent Cajun cooking and a great dance band.
On Friday, the women enjoyed a cooking class while the men headed out for an afternoon of clay shooting before we all gathered at the Lyric Theater for a concert by country legend Mel Tillis and dinner at The Gafford.
Saturday proved to be a perfectly beautiful day at the campground. We built red wagon floats and decorated them in Mardi Gras style, breaking for a catered lunch from Parabas Grill. In the evening, with everyone in “Fat Tuesday” attire, we held our own Mardi Gras parade, followed by authentic “N’awlins” dinner and dancing until late in the evening.
The rally ended with another gorgeous day Sunday, highlighted by our traditional Super Bowl festivities including delicious food before the game and at halftime.
As usual, a number of third party companies joined us for the weekend. Mountain Falls and Hearthside RV resorts set up booths to display their properties for sale. A costume company from Lake Worth offered attire, beads, masks, and all sorts of other Mardi Gras items for rent and sale. City Mattress had a display showcasing their Prana mattress. And there was a beautiful presentation by Provident Jewelers, as well as a booth of women’s purses and accessories.
Last but certainly not least, a pair of the brand new, just completed 2015 Liberty Coaches were on display throughout the weekend. Not surprisingly, one was purchased at the end of the rally – a fitting conclusion to our “Lucky 13” Open House.
Of course, we’re the lucky ones – lucky to have such a loyal group of owners and guests, lucky to enjoy your support and participation rally after rally, year after year. Thanks to you, Liberty Coach is thriving as never before. So on behalf of our staff, ownership, and the entire Liberty Coach family, thanks for coming – and see you next year!
