African-American RVers Hold 16th Annual Rally.

SPARTA - Hundreds of travelers paved their way to Sparta this week as part of the National African-American RVers Association, Inc.'s 16th annual camp rally.

The rally, which began Sunday and ends Sunday, is expected to draw between 300 and 400 RVers to the World Shooting and
Recreational Complex north of Sparta, said Elbert Smith of Dallas, first vice president of the association.

Many attendees have been coming since the association began 16 years ago, Smith said, making the yearly rally an opportunity to see old friends.

"It's a big family reunion," he said.

Although many came early, the crowd is expected to pick up significantly on Wednesday, when the official opening ceremony begins at 7 p.m.

Numbers for this year's rally are expected to be less than previous years - when as many as 1,000 would attend, Smith said.

Recent gas increases have kept some people from taking as many road trips, keeping some people from this year's rally, he said. For Smith, staying home wasn't an option, despite the high travel expenses.

"We're gonna come regardless because, hey, this is what we like to do," Smith said.
