2010 PA Chapter Rally

We have secured our rally site for the 2010 season! We're really excited about this place. Very nice, large, level, wooded sites, plenty of room between you and your nearest and dearest neighbor. Think state park but privately owned. Themed weekends...2 pools, mini-golf, swim lake with beach, horseshoe pits, volleyball, and a Saturday night dance at the barn. Full hook-ups on all sites with cable...plus wi-fi in selected areas.

Deep in the heart of Amish farms, outlet shopping, antiques, food (lots of food including Amish restaurants), amusement park, a railroad museum and train tour, and comedy theatre, just to name a few places of interest!

Welcome to SPRING GULCH RESORT CAMPGROUND!

In Lancaster County, this resort is easily accessible from the PA turnpike. Check out their website at

www.springgulch.com (http://www.springgulch.com/)

June 11-13th, longer stays welcome! Please call Toll free: 1-866-864-8524 to make your reservation.

Group rate of $49.80 per night. Mention code 7203 when you call...Heartland Group.

We have lovely sites. We have reserved 20 to start with, but should we get more than 20 rigs, there is plenty of room to expand within our area....meaning, we should still all be together, even the last minute reservations...

But why wait??? Check your calendars, then put a big red circle around the dates (June 11-13) and pick up the phone. They do require full payment at time of booking. See their website for additional information.

They will hold our spots till Feb 1st (which is what I asked for) but reserve early!!!!

Tell your friends and Heartland brothers and sisters!!! Everyone welcome (even non-PA residents!!!), SOBs (and future Heartlanders) are welcome too...so if you have a friend who wants to join us...he/she is more than welcome!!



05/25/10 update

I have attached the following link for the great Shady Maple Smorgasbord:

http://www.shady-maple.com/smorgasbord

Oh, one more thing. For those of you logging on to their website, check out their site map...we have sites 1542-1552, 1554, 1553, and sites 1529, 1535. I think you should be able to request your site #. When you make your reservation and site #, please let me know so I can keep a record of attendees.

DH and I are in 1542.

Hello cheryl,
kubo here, I see that you have a pa rally for spring gulch, GREAT CHOICE !!! I can tell you from personal experience from camping there several times a year for the last 10 years, it is a great place ! and what is cool , I only live about 40 minutes away :) . You must put on your list of places to visit , shady maple buffet. Its about 10 minutes away from the campground, all pa dutch food. all you can eat, Its is awsome !!!!! (I suggest throwing away the weight scale first) The agusta is on the assembly line as I write this, If all goes well, should be taking delivery in a few weeks. then the real "schooling starts" I think I should put a yellow stripe on the back of the unit to designate a rookie, that's what nascar does on the race cars of rookie drivers, hum, sounds like a good idea to me :) Have a great day !!!!

Hi Kubo and welcome to the Pa thread!! The Flying Dutchman (Eric and Dorothy) have already notified me of Shady Maple...but DH and I are already well familiar with the place...and YUM! I am thinking we will do our meal here instead of pot luck since we can't have the barn on Saturday anyway. It is our experience that SM is very crowded on Sat nights so I am thinking of brunch.

Yes there is so much to do there in Amish-land and eating is only part of all the fun and excitement!!!!

Make your reservation today! The info is at the beginning of this thread. I'll need to get DH to make it a permanent front page.... Use our "code" number to reserve, then let me know what site you have and date of arrival!

Enjoy your week!!!

Hello, this our first post after taking delivery of our new Sundance 28RLS
in June. We're in upstate NY but spend lots of time in southern PA in early June most years. In case anyone is interested, the York Street Rod and Muscle car show is the weekend before your rally date. Carlisle All Ford Nationals show also. If you're into cars, you can make a full week out of your trip. Heck. we might even join in your rally fun! Happy Camping and we love our new camper.

I'm not positive but I think Shady Maple might have a seperate room for large groups. I'll be sure not to eat for a few days before going there! Love that place.

Hi Cheryl,
Great choice, will have to let you and Jim know after we get home and get everything sorted out. We think that is the week the kids go to the shore asked Chris to send me the dates. Will be leaving Gallup NM Wednesday. Not hurring back finding out what the BC is made of so far great.

Something to keep in mind at Shady Maple - we went there for breakfast and missed the "allotted" time slot, they stop taking customers around 9:30 to get ready for the lunch crowd. IIRC it was a 1.5 hour wait and the price nearly doubled.

I received a message wanting to know if anyone was interested in a Rally in PA in 2010 back in June. The time frame was the month of July. Is this the 2010 Regional Rally that you and Gus were conversing about back around June of this year?

No, they are different. There is an Eastern Region Rally in Cape Hatteras in Apr/May (see discussion here: //heartlandowners.org/showthread.php?t=12500)

The PA Chapter is holding it's own rally in June - see the first post in this thread.

Still on the wagon (diet)

Jim, you deffinetly need to fall off the wagon and go to Shady Maple. It is by far the largest buffet I have ever seen.

dieselengineer
10-29-2009, 09:44 PM
Yes, Jim you do need to work this rally into your schedule. The food at shady maple is unbelievable. The camp sites are wonderful and Strasburg (steam railroad museum) is nearby. I hope this gets you going on the right track. Oh, I almost forgot, the Strasburg train ride will take you to Paradise.

Hey there y'all! I've been off the forum due to being very busy with the school semester! I taught full-time for the nursing department, plus taught as adjunct for the Allied Health Dep't...so the end of the semester is always very busy for me...test development, finals..grades..that sort of busy stuff. I'm just checking back in and re-reading everyone's posts...hopefully once the calendar turns to 2010 everyone will have a better idea of time off for the rally in June!! Focus, focus, focus...RV time will be fast approaching!!

Happy New Year everyone...and I'm raising my glass to a great 2010 full of friendship and happy RV times!!!

Looking forward to going to all those places mentioned in the early discussions ... buffet, flea market, train ride ...

I am attached to the internet, just have to decide if I want to add the $5/day fee. Maybe there will be just too much to do :angel:

Hello everybody taking a look at the PA rally information. The folks at Spring Gulch will hold onto our sites for only 2 more weeks, and then they will release them to the general public. Today (Feb 1) was the original due date but I spoke with the nice lady today and she extended the date till the 14th...we have 8 definite rigs confirmed and 12 more sites available. If you choose to wait until after the cut-off date to make a reservation you will just have to take your chance that you will get in somewhere near the group. So....if you are planning on attending the PA rally in June...don't hesitate!!! Call Spring Gulch ASAP and get your reservation made! Let me know what site you are assigned and what date you will be arriving...as I am keeping a log.

Don't put it off another day!!! Dig out your calendar, and make that reservation!!!!

Thanks!!!

Well, as of this morning, my daughter has missed 11 days of school due to SNOW. We are now somewhere around 62"-63" of snow, with 4"-6" expected by Thursday am. She now is scheduled to go until June 11th. We are to arrive at the rally on Thursday the 10th. I guess it is time to talk to the school about an educational vacation.

Oh my gosh!!! 11 days missed! Ya I guess you are up higher than the rest of us..more snow...we had 22" in our area...more snow to come tonight/tomorrow...but not sure how much or when the bulk of it will arrive. Supposedly it will be worse on Friday when 50 mph winds come to town...better make sure the generator is working!!!

i wish we had an exact delivery date on our 21FBS -- we've never been to a rally, and it sounds like FUN! (rumor has it that we'll take delivery end of may/early june.. apparently some delay due to our choice of fabric).

my husband used to camp at spring gulch as a child and it's still on our list to get to this year -- he's definitely in at just the mention of the shady maple!

Hello everyone!! By now I'm sure you are stocking up your Heartlands in preparation for your first camping trip of the season....we are headed out in 2 weekends and can't wait! I hope the w/e is as nice as what we've had...

I just wanted to prepare you all for the game we will be playing at our rally in June...we are going to play "Minute to Win It" and if you haven't yet seen the show on NBC I suggest you take a look...Sunday nights at 8p on your local NBC channel. You have a minute to complete a task and move on to higher levels. We will play in teams. Also, check out the game online...look under NBC.com and check out the show!!

Happy April!

Hello Cheryl,

Thanks for allowing us to interrupt your dinner at Lums Pond. We are looking forward to the Pennsylvania Rally and meeting some of the other Heartland owners / members. Maybe, we'll even find another owner in the big state of Delaware. Jim thinks we are on site 1550 at Spring Gulch ? Arriving Friday afternoon after work?

Ha ha Jim and Terry...sorry about that Terry! In fact, Lynne had remembered after I already posted.... it was good to meet you and welcome to the forum...officially!! Lazydaze, welcome to our group! We are happy to have you! Jim and Harriet...you know that rule about the first volunteer to "sit out" is the first to be volunteered to play...haha better start practicing!!

I am winding down the college semester and things are pretty busy for me right now. Next week will be a little quieter so I will be sitting down and devoting more time to planning the rally. Last year the rally was in August and school didn't interfere... but yes we are planning a trip to Shady Maple (maybe we should play The Biggest Loser after our trip there!)... Shady Maple on Sat for brunch... also, I have thoughts for a Welcome Reception on Friday evening. I'll be putting together plans for that as well.

There is a lot to do and see in this area. Let me know if you have any special interests for sight-seeing or shopping...etc. I will also be working on a directory-type book for attractions in that area! FYI, there is a comedy dinner theatre in close proximity... check out the Rainbow Dinner Theatre website for information:

https://www.rainbowdinnertheatre.com/

More information coming soon! Stay tuned!!

Jim and I will be hosting a welcome breakfast at our site on Friday AM....Saturday is Shady Maple, and Sunday we will host a "Happy Trails" breakfast to say goodbye... Saturday evening will be the "Minute to Win It" game (with prizes for the winners....no money sorry... :-))

Also, how about a recipe exchange? Since we don't have a big place to have a community dinner, bring along a favorite recipe (on a 3 X 5 card) to share...this recipe should be easy to make, with common ingredients (no trips to a specialty store), and RV'ing friendly (which means we can make it on the fire or on our little RV stoves). Start looking through your box of recipes now! Make sure you have multiple copies of your one recipe to share with others!!!

Do they know what they are doing ? Called to try to register for a spot and they said that none were available in that area of that park and they could offer a w/e site in different section of the park - I guess we can always call back and try to get someone who cares a little more....

They were a bit 'snippy' when I called. I explained that two of us (porthole and us) had been confirmed for the same site. I was told that was 'impossible' with their system???
Anyway, they looked up my confirmation # and told me that I had been moved to 1520. That's ok but it would have been nice if they had emailed me or something to let us know as its a bit
unnerving to think you might travel 400 miles and not have a site ! Louise, hope to see you there. Looks like a beautiful park -- once we get straightened out. Happy Camping

Oh yeah...they were playing around with Porthole and Hertzberg sites...moving them back and forth...that's why you got caught in the middle of that... they moved them without asking too...then when they complained they moved them back. Somewhere in that move you got inserted into 1553. Have to think that the KOA in Pine Grove and Oogie wouldn't have done that!!!!

Hey Jim,
Mark did mention to whomever he spoke to that we were part of the Heartland Group, and he gave them the code. He was told we could book a site in another location I believe without full hook-ups. I will call them today with the hope that someone else will be more willing to look a little further. We really want to be there and be amongst the group.

Louise Burton
05-12-2010, 09:44 AM
Jim,
Good news! There was a cancellation yesterday, and Mark and I were able to reserve site #1576. Bad news is the young lady spoke to a manager about the possible "expanded" sites for Heartland, and he said that because they did not hear back in time from Heartland, they booked them all. There may be some other sites available, but not with the group. I did want to say that the young lady I spoke to was very nice and helpful. Very glad I called back....see everyone soon!

Do you know you can save $$$$ at rallies by being a CLUB MEMBER??? The membership fee pays for itself in a short amount of time....

Yes JOIN NOW! - You're almost there anyway just by sharing with us a common love of camping and the outdoors. We can't wait to see all our wonderful, new Heartland friends again and know there will be many more. One of my favorite evenings was the pot luck dinner...Nelly's 4 layer blueberry cake was actually made in her convection oven!!! I got so many ideas - the variety....!

I figured there was a mix-up 'cause I checked trhe drive distance from the PA cg to the
flea market and saw it was much closer than 150 miles. :rolleyes:
might go to the flea market on Saturday afternoon - unless we just decide to nap after

Jim & Harriet, have you considered Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in Quarryville, PA. ? Their pnone number is 717-786-3458 I think they charge $ 54,00/nite and offer packages. It's more geared up to family's and kids but... it's about 1.3 hours from Philly and in a nice country setting. A second choice is our place, the cost is free, ya get electric and total country and it's kinda ruffin it for a couple of days. The cost is free. ya can't beat dat, can ya ? If it were me, I'd choose the yogi place... JMO

Thought I saw that someone else was on that site. I was a little concerned when I read that their were double bookings. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone and starting out our camping seasons! You heard right....this is our first trip out this season. I think Bob needs to retire so we can hit the road!!! I saw that someone was asking about a Bluegrass festival? Their is a Blues/jazz festival this Saturday in Elverson. It is called the Chester County Blues Barbecue Festival, hosted by the Lions club. Their will be 3 bands and it starts at 2 and goes until 7. If you go to Chestercountyblues.com you can find all the info. about this event. We plan to go....tickets are $17.00 a person.

The "big rally" is scheduled for the same amount of time that others are...however, because of the distance for some...they like to go in early...so Jim usually has "unnofficial" things planned for the early-goers. We are thinking if we have our rally S-S-M...people can leave Tues AM and head on in to Elkhart. You can always mapquest Pittsburgh, PA to Elkhart and get that mileage....Pgh is close to the Ohio border.

Jim and I went to Spring Gulch today to refresh our memory since it was last fall when we last saw it. It's so much different with RVs in it! We talked to Lisa...who must be the manager...and she said YES.. we can have the Dance Barn (although limited hours) but we can have the barn on Friday 5-7 and Sat 5-7. Now we don't think much is going on before that...so we could probably tweak a 4:30 in there and make it go till 7:30. On Friday night there is Bingo at 8:30 for all you bingo lovers...and Sat at 8p is the dance.
Someone mentioned a "jazz" festival? We're not sure about that but they seemed to have their big jazz festival in May (we saw the leftover T-shirts on sale!)...we are thinking they have entertainment out on the lawn Sat in front of the dance barn. There was a band there today. So maybe that's the same idea. We'll know more when we check in on Wed because they print out the weekly activities.

So..............who's up for a simple pot luck for Friday? We can do an impromptu meet and greet (we did it in NJ huh Deb??)...so let's plan on that for Friday around 4:30-5p ish till we have to vacate. And on Sat...we can do any leftover food and desserts ...plus the game. The dance barn is nice and big...tables and chairs...plenty of room to play the game plus have something to eat!

So I feel a lot better since we went down there and I talked to Lisa...who I didn't talk to before this. Seems she's the "go to" person!

The sites are nice! Shaded...so if it's hot...we should be cool! Plus, the pool and tennis courts are right at the end of our road...so everyone can walk to swim or play tennis...!!!

Stay tuned for more info as the week begins...Jim and I will be headed there on Wednesday late afternoon.

A potluck sounds great! This time I will prepare the items before I leave so I can visit more of our friends! :)
Last years' PA rally was our first with Heartland and I remember spending so much time preparing our contribution (shrimp toast). Plus, not having brought my bread from home, my boys couldnt find the kind I usually use.

With the great cookbook Deb Bylinski put together for the New Jersey Rally :) , I sure hope everyone passes on a copy of their recipe so we can start adding to it.

I know we all cook a bit and enjoying eating a lot so we need to really start sharing them.

*****BIG PLUG***** for those going to the Nashville Rally - CHERYL has a great cookbook she will be selling there so please remember to see her for yours.. it will also make a great bridal shower gift or for xmas...***** HINT Cheryl -- time to start putting the info out unless you have and I just missed it.

Thanks Deb for the cookbook plug! I will actually have them at our rally next week! "Cooking for a Cure" was co-authored by myself and a colleague (we teach in a nursing program) and she is the captain for her area Relay for Life team. What started out as something "simple"..."hey let's pass recipes around" turned into an order for 500 books of collected recipes from other nursing faculty, church members, and other friends and family. $15 donation (every penny goes to the Relay for Life chapter) and the hardback (not spiral bound) ring binder type, 541 recipes is yours. We have received a lot of positive feedback on our collection. All the recipes contain ingredients which you would have on hand or find at the local grocery store... No recipes calling for anything odd that you wouldn't be able to find... everything from smoothies to cakes to potatoes to lollipops to dog biscuits...and even a recipe for bluebird food and rabbit and rodent deterrent!!! Conveniently cross-referenced by author AND recipe title....

I will take cash or a check. $15 to help the fight against cancer. We really need to find that cure to all cancers...medicine has made much advancements and improvements over the years...but we need to find the way to end all cancer!

Thank you!!!

I will bring my fuel. $ 2.70 in NJ

Hey John, So now I understand how you can afford to operate the powerstoke. (hee hee) Diesel is always more pricey in PA, that because we pump our own at the pumps.

DEB: The Y'all is for you.

Really guys we are coming! Duane had a neat job that kept him tied up prior to leaving and then he had to really work at his real other job .
Of course, he had to do a few modifications too prior to leaving. This was instead of showing up and having to modify something the minute we got level as was the case at the great New Jersey Rally.
So dont let anyone take our spot Cheryl or Denise's other side may come out...

Boy would it be nice to arrive before dark....
Have fun!

It would be unusual to actually see Duane and Deb arrive. We usually wake up and find them backed in! Although, there is an art to night backing and Duane's got it down pat!

Duane rocked at getting back in around 11pm.... assisted by the extremely large and brilliant (something like 2 kazillion megawatts) flashlight owned by the diesel engineer.... do they still call them flashlights when they are that big??? I think they saw that beam of light on the space station! And thanks also go out to Freckles who also came back out to see what all the commotion was about!

Having a great time and the b-fast at Shady Maple was quite the experience! The weather continues to be beautiful and the fellowship is the best!!!!
