In what is undoubtedly disappointing news to many RVillage members, exhibitors and seminar participants, the RVillage 2022 Spirit of the Road Rally, scheduled for March 9-13 in Live Oak, Fla., has been canceled.
RVillage is a social network of 500,000 RV owners and enthusiasts and part of Roadpass Digital.
The announcement was issued to attendees late last week and read in part:
It’s with heavy hearts that we inform you the RVillage Rally 2022 Spirt of the Road has been canceled. This was a very difficult decision to make, as we were excited to gather together again and share another unique and wonderful event with you. Unfortunately the current travel environment prevents us from hosting an event where we can guarantee the health, safety, and RVillage rally experience that our community expects….
According to RVillage spokesperson Gayle Teskey, “We just didn’t feel the time was right to be able to deliver the kind of experience our RVillage family has come to expect from the Spirit of the Road Rally.”
The last Spirit of the Road Rally was held in March 2020, also in Live Oak, Fla., and drew over 1,000 participants. This year’s rally was expected to be as big or bigger.
