The sunny state of Florida can lay claim
to one of FMCA's first chapters, the Roll'n Rebels, which was
chartered in July 1968. Many devades later, it's still a strong group that
stays active by rallying at least once a month, from September to
Saturday is filled with games such as beanbag
baseball, dominoes, bocce, or cards. For most games, they
usually form teams consisting of either couples or women versus men.

entertainment, or they have a special themed evening.
Roll'n Rebels rallies have a fairly regular
structure. Most rallies are held on weekends, officially starting on
Friday night with a happy hour, which later is followed by a
relaxing communal dinner. It is not uncommon for members to arrive
on Thursday for an extra evening of togetherness.
On Sunday the rally wraps up with a continental
breakfast and farewells until next time.

to their different ideas as well. The membership believes that new
people with new ideas are key to a successful chapter, Dues
