Winnebago Plans for 45th Annual WIT Rally
Winnebago Industries Inc. has started the countdown to the launch of the annual WIT Grand National Rally (GNR) July 16-20 at the rally grounds across from the company’s headquarters in Forest City, Iowa.
“We have started the countdown sequence as we prepare to host our WIT members for another memorable rally,” said Winnebago Consumer Engagement Manager Denise Yeager. “1969 was a year that not only launched our first WIT GNR, but also marked the first landing on the moon. We have a very special celebration this year as we celebrate these historic events. WIT members are already rolling into the rally grounds here in Forest City preparing to get reacquainted with old friends and meet some new ones as well.”
Several activities are planned during the event, including a visit from NASA’s Orion Project and the University of Iowa’s Mobile Museum.
GNR attendees can also sign on for in-depth building tours of Winnebago’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, informative seminars, and a variety of entertainment. Evening entertainment throughout the week includes the musical artists Rivoli Review, local comedy/singing duo Tina and Lena and a performance by Jefferson Starship.
Select vendors also participate in the GNR with displays and over 100 different informative seminar sessions throughout the rally. In addition, new 2015 Winnebago, Itasca, Winnebago Touring Coach motorhomes and Winnebago towables will also be on display, including brand new models such as the Brave and Tribute whose design harkens back to 1969 with a vibrant retro design with modern state of the art features. Rally participants looking for that hands-on feel, are also able to ride and drive some of the new 2015 units while they’re here.
Membership in the WIT Club is open to anyone who owns a Winnebago motorhome or towable product. There are currently more than 12,000 Club members. WIT Club members are eligible for special member benefits and can also participate in local, state, regional and special interest clubs, and receive special discount pricing on Winnebago Outdoor Adventure events and caravans.
