Dixie Rally May 16th – 18th 2014
|Hello Red Knight Brothers and Sisters,As you may or may not know, RKIFMC Region 4 stretches from Delaware south to Florida, and west to Louisiana and for the past 9 years a chapter from one of these states has volunteered to host what is nick named the “Dixie Rally”. In 2004, some friends from several Region 4 chapters met in Alabama for a good time and came up with an idea to get all Red Knight Chapters throughout the Region to come together for fun and fellowship by hosting annual rallies. These rallies are not only for fun and fellowship; they are used to help the host chapter to raise money for their selected charities.Through their dedication for fellowship in August 2004, they created the first Chartered Regional Association within RKIFMC, “Southern Regional Association #1” a Confederation of Southern Chapters.As always, all RKIFMC members from around the world are invited and encouraged to attend.
The next “Dixie Rally” will be our 10th Annual Event and is being hosted by Virginia 6 at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel & Conference Center located on the beach of the Chesapeake Bay, situated 3 ½ miles east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and 6 miles west of the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
