The First Florida Chapter MVPA was founded in 1981 by Earle Byers

Our Club covers the entire State of Florida. It is divided into 7 Regions, each with a coordinator. We currently have over 200 active members with nearly as many vehicles. Some members own more than one Military Vehicle. Our calendar lists over 100 events for our members to participate in each year. Click on the Calendar Link to see our current Event Calendar. The highlight for the club is our Annual The Charles Craven Winter Rally and Swap Meet held each year in February at the Renninger's Flea Market in Mount Dora Florida. We recently completed our 2015 Rally and it was a huge success! We had over 100 Vehicles, 40+ vendors and thousands of spectators. The 2016 Rally will be in February and promises to be even bigger. Click on the 2016 Rally link to the left for more information.

We invite everyone to join our group. You do not have to own a Military Vehicle to be a member, just an interest in them and a willingness to be part of a dedicated group of Men, Women and Families who enjoy Military Vehicles, making Friends and enjoying life in Florida. Click on the Membership Link for more information. You can also see an issue of our club newsletter, THE SOUTHERN OUTPOST there. Each issue is packed with stories and photos of events, members vehicles, For Sale and Wanted, Event Calendar and much more. After you join, you will begin receiving the Newsletter by mail. An electronic copy is also posted in the MEMBERS ONLY section located in the Membership link.
