Missouri State RV Rally

Each year thousands of Good Sammer's migrate to RV Rally’s held throughout the United States and Canada.  All of our Missouri Good Sam friends “RALLY” together in September at the Missouri State RV Rally held at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri.  The Missouri Good Sam Rally offers games, seminars, entertainment, ice cream social, but most of all lots of fun!

A Good Sam Club membership is not required to attend, nor do you have to be a member of a Missouri Chapter to participate in the Missouri State RV Rally, but we bet you’ll become a member before you leave!

MISSOURI PRISON BLUES TOUR


"I hear that train a comin’, it’s rollin’ round the bend"….unlike Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues, this train will be taking you to tour the oldest prison west of the Mississippi; the infamous Missouri State Penitentiary!

A motorcoach will pick you up at the Mathewson Exhibition Center for a short ride to the Sedalia Train Depot. You will be rollin’ eastbound on Amtrak’s River Runner passenger train bound for Jefferson City. A motorcoach will meet you at the Jefferson City train station where the day’s activities will include:

     Lunch at Prison Brews Restaurant,
     A guided tour of the "unoccupied" historic 1836 Missouri State Penitentiary,
     A presentation on the Puppies for Parole program at the Algoa Correctional Center,
     A tour of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Museum, and
     A stop for a delicious scoop of Central Dairy ice cream.

Relax in comfort as your motorcoach carries you back to the Missouri State Fairgrounds for an evening of fun and fellowship.

The same tour will be offered on two dates: Tuesday, September 24, 2019 and Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

Cost is $79.00 per person and includes everything! All tickets, transportation, lunch (limited menu: entrée and drink included), tours, ice cream (choice of flavor: one scoop cone or cup), all applicable taxes, and gratuities.

We are limited to 50 attendees per tour so please register early!  

***Important Updated Information***
Due to a change in Amtrak's reservation requirements, the tour must be paid in-full by Saturday, June 1, 2019.***

Cancellations: Please be mindful when cancelling your reservation, if cancellations bring the number of attendees below 40, we will have to cancel the entire tour.  Cancellations must be made in writing and sent to Marc Applegate, Missouri State Treasurer.  All cancellations will incur a 25% cancellation fee of the total tour amount to cover deposits made for your behalf.  No Refunds can be made for cancellations made on or after August 15, 2019 or for No Shows. 

Additional Information: You must be registered to attend the Rally to be eligible for the tours.  Please bring a Government Issued ID, which may be requested by Amtrak.  Since the Missouri State Penitentiary was built in the early 1800's the tour is NOT handicapped assessible and not suitable for scooters, wheelchairs, crutches or walkers, etc. Attendees should wear comfortable closed toe shoes, no sandals are allowed.  Children must be 10 years old or older, no one under the age of 10 is allowed on the tour.  There is no heat or air conditioning it the buildings so dress appropriately. The tour will be inside, but there is a short walk between buildings, so if it's raining bring an umbrella.  The Missouri State Penitentiary requires all individuals to sign a liability waiver form.
