1996 National Rally, Hutchinson, KS

30th Anniversary "Home to Hutchinson" Rally

1996 Rally Logo

By week’s end, 38 coaches had gathered for the occasion.

One of the highlights of our rally was the convoy from Cheney State Park to Hutchinson for a parade of 27 coaches through town. Hundreds of people took thousands of photos, and television stations from Wichita and other cities recorded the event. The photo below is a panoramic view of the coaches forming up for our convoy.

During the week long encampment at the Kansas State Fairgrounds, hundreds of former Ultra employees and local citizens took the opportunity to visit with us, look at the coaches, talk to owners (both original and recent purchasers), and learn more about these unique vehicles. A group of about 20 Cushman Scooter owners rode down from Topeka to visit with us and share the nostalgia of old, classic vehicles.
