[CENTER]Houston Spring Rally


Please join us again at the Rayford Crossing RV Resort in Spring Texas for another fun-filled weekend of fun.


The weather in Houston is great in the spring. The cold will be gone and the flowers will be coming in. If you are in Texas or if you've spent the winter in the Rio Grande Valley, you'll have a ball with us here in one of the nicest parks in the United States.


Please contact Melissa, rally coordinator, at the park to make your reservations at 281 298-8008 or by email at Rayford Crossing RV Resort (//heartlandowners.org/rayfordcrossing@sbcglobal.net) Rally rates are to be determined.

Bill and Ornell, you haven't missed one yet, so you're down!

Jim, I hope these Karaoke CD's are easier to sing along with.

Jaime, it was nice meeting you and we'll look forward to seeing you in April.

Buddy, it was good meeting you and Maureen and congrats on joining the club. Jim B told me he had gotten your info and was mailing out your packet.

Kathy, I think that in April you and Jim can be the singers. We had a lot of fun singing though.

Paul & Nan
11-02-2009, 10:21 PM
Paul and I may be there, we will wait and see as we are looking to leave the RGV early April and meander our way to Oregon by the way of Arizona to visit a friend and also the Grand Canyon by early June. As newbie sorta fullltimers it is hard to judge time. Nan

jayc
11-03-2009, 06:39 AM
Paul and Nan, we hope to see you in the spring. Its not that far out of the way to come to Houston and I can guarantee you'll have a good time with other Heartland owners.

jayc

Rick Dagiello called me tonight to tell me that he and Blanca are coming to the rally.

jimtoo
11-03-2009, 09:50 PM
Can you pronounce Rick's last name for me????:D:D

And we are planning on being there also Jay.

Jim M

Tom of Ypsi
11-03-2009, 09:56 PM
Jay may be able to pronounce that name correctly but he would not be pronouncing the right name. It is Richard G. Jagiello and I can not pronounce it correctly.

jimtoo
11-03-2009, 10:25 PM

Come on you guys.. It is spring.. time to get out and have some fun.

Jay and all,

It looks like we will have to miss the rally this spring.:mad:
Startup at the plant from a 3 week turnaround is that week. I will be working long hours.:o

Sorry to miss it. I know you will all have a good time.

We are going to Valentines day in hill country. See you there it appears.

Hopefully in a couple of years this pesky job won't get in the way anymore.:D

Have fun.

jayc
01-24-2010, 10:51 PM
Bob and Sue, we'll miss you at the rally. We're going to miss the Sweetheart rally but will be in the valley for the potluck on the 16th at Retama Village and the luncheon at Ron Hoover on the 18th. Wish y'all could make it down there.

landp
02-03-2010, 07:05 PM
Please add Libby and me to the list

Charlie Harris
02-06-2010, 09:47 AM
Jay, Please add Peggy and I to the list. Managed to trade out with another guy so that I will be off call on that week! Will call the park today.

jayc
02-06-2010, 09:56 AM
Charlie, thats good news! Glad you could trade out and can make it to the rally with us. I remember those on call weekends too well.


We are halfway there for filling the reserved sites. Come on down with us and let's fill the park with Heartland Trailers.

plumberdude
02-06-2010, 10:31 AM
We are so anxious to get to warm weather! We just had another 6 in of snow yesterday. (Why we are still here is the DH has to still work!):) We look forward to meeting everyone! This will be our maiden voyage!

Pat and Lori

jayc
02-06-2010, 11:27 AM
Pat and Lori, too bad you can't come down here to the Rio Grande Valley with us and many other Heartland owners. It's going to be in the upper 70's (finally!) here today. We're having two events next week!

plumberdude
02-07-2010, 10:05 AM
Really wish we could do that now. DH still has some jobs to finish before we can travel. So for the time being we will have to stay where it's cold and complain!

Lori and Miriah

By the way Miriah and Cassie look like they would have fun meeting each other!

jayc
02-07-2010, 10:11 AM
Looks like Cassie and Miriah will have to wait until April to be able to meet. We'll be looking for you.

We are new Heartland RV owners and would like to attend the Spring TX rally. Is that a problem?

Bob Williams

jayc
02-13-2010, 11:22 PM
Bob, coming to the rally is not a problem at all. We'll be glad to see you in Spring.

TomMar
02-23-2010, 09:55 PM
Jay;
Marti was just asking when the Spring Rally was scheduled. I have been out of the country and just checked the forum. Put Matri and me down for one site. We will get ahold of Rayford for the site info. Well see ya'll there.

kakampers
02-24-2010, 05:45 AM
Hey Jay...we will be traveling out of the valley with some friends who unbelieveably do NOT own a Heartland, just a lowly Teton...can they join us at this rally? Didn't think we would be making it, but the show in OK we were looking at already has a Rescue Tape distributor. I'd rather be here anyway...LOL!!

jayc
02-24-2010, 08:18 AM
Tom, I'll add you and Marti to the list.

Kathy, I guess we can allow a "lowly" Teton in with us. Maybe them seeing so many nice Heartland units will sway them to change.

meandg
02-24-2010, 04:25 PM
Sign me up, I'm there. Just made my reservations. We will be arriving on Thursday and staying through Sunday.

kakampers
02-25-2010, 09:53 AM
OK Jay....thanks! Looks like we're a go for sure, just reserved site #37. Our "Teton" friends aren't sure yet, depends on whether they can close on their Casita Home in Phase II by then. If they can't it will just be us, and they'll catch up to us in Denver later....can't wait to see everybody again!!!

jayc
02-25-2010, 10:13 AM
Sounds good Kathy. Can you let me (and Rayford) know as soon as possible if your friends are coming so we won't hold a site unnessarily for them?

SueJean
03-02-2010, 06:36 PM
Greetings!

DannyLee and I (aka "Johnny Cash and June) would love to join up for the rally.

Maybe we can ramp up the "karaoke" to a higher level as that's our business and we love to share our music. We've got over 7,500 songs in our repertoire so I'm sure there's something for everyone. :cool:

Since we're supposed to be meeting up with JimToo during that time anyway, maybe this works out better for you Jim.

We will be arriving on the 16th so I guess we need to contact the park for reservations? (This will be our first Heartland rally.)

Blessings,

SueJean (and DannyLee)

Jim M

Hmmm................"Happy Birthday"????? :confused: I'll have to talk to "Johnny" about that. Did you want the country version, the Johnny Cash version, the Elvis version or the kid's version? Or maybe you'd like them all, eh? Let me know if there's some version that you like better than the others and we'll see if we can line it up for you! :p Just kidding!

It would be a treat no matter what version you like! :angel:

jayc
03-02-2010, 09:54 PM
Sue Jean and Danny Lee or Johnny or Elvis or whoever, you can sing Happy Birthday to Jim and then do karaoke on Saturday night. Maybe we can get some of the others to sing too.

Jim and I would love to join you at the Spring Rally at Rayford Crossing RV Resort in April. Just haven't figured out how to register for the thing on this website. Ya'll have any directions on the web address and how to get there???!

jayc
03-03-2010, 10:51 AM
Gloria and Jim,
You will find the sign up sheet HERE (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/12942-EVENT-Heartland-Chapter-Rally-TX-Spring-4-16-2010-to-04-18-2010). The location of the park will be found there. You will also have to call the park (281 298-8008 to make a reservation with them. We will be looking forward to seeing you soon.

I see that you live in the Woodlands. You won't even get your truck warmed up to get to Rayford Crossing!

jayc
03-04-2010, 11:46 AM
I got some good news today. Ron Hoover RV has agreed to bring a couple of units to the park for us to look at and they will be furnishing a hot dog lunch for us from 11AM-1PM on Saturday.

jimtoo
03-04-2010, 12:20 PM
OHhhh Booyyyy....... :D More free food!!!!! :D

jayc
03-04-2010, 12:39 PM
Yep, I was thinking about who would be the most interested in free food, and guess who it was...? LOL

jayc
03-04-2010, 08:12 PM
I made a mistake from the get go. I used last year's rates and they have gone up to $30 instead of $27. I am sorry for the mistake and the late time to notice it.

jayc
03-08-2010, 09:43 PM
I've got more good news! I have been in contact with Pat McFall and he has agreed to offer us a show special price on the Pressure Pro tire pressure monitoring system with free shipping and no tax at the rally. I will have the information when we arrive at the rally.

This is a great deal on a great product.

jimtoo
03-09-2010, 12:03 AM
Gee Jay,,,, I'm just not sure how much more I can handle..... I mean a free hotdog... maybe two.... and then a special for a Pressure Pro tire monitoring system ..... all for my birthday..!!!!!

Jim M

(Jay... think you can find anyone willing to pay for my space and fuel???:D)

jayc
03-12-2010, 05:09 PM
Jim and Gloria, I got your post about being in site #38. I also heard from a couple that came to the park where I am and want to come too. I added Mike and Zanetta to our list. We are getting close to filling up so come on down with us and sign up.

jayc
03-26-2010, 12:50 PM
We got some more good news about our rally this morning. Jim Beletti will be able to attend the rally, so we'll have a "news from the factory" time set aside. I was thinking that since Ron Hoover will be bringing in some units for us to check out, we could have this session after breakfast at 9:30-10:00? That way we could have the afternoon to hang out together, go shopping, or nap, and guess which one I will vote for?

jayc
03-26-2010, 04:27 PM
Jim Gratz has a DVD on trailer maintenance that he is willing to show us. Unfortunately, it is copyrighted. Here is what it contains: Proper Propane Handling; Installs; Awnings; Water Heater; A/c; refrigerators; 5-vip things you need to know and much more. It was produced by Terry Cooper the Texas RV Professor. He is a master certified RV Tech and Jim has taken classes from him. He is good. The DVD was provided by him as part of the fee he paid for one of his classes he took. It would be something good for all to see.

kakampers

Don't worry! The Karaoke will be great!

DannyLee's been practicing his favorite Johnny Cash songs for weeks.

Oh! I mean, he's been practicing "Happy Birthday"...........;) We wouldn't want Jim to miss out on anything else.

We think we're in space 52 or something like that. Looking forward to meeting everyone! ;)

Can we help with anything for any of the events. Or is this a dangerous thing to ask:)

Hey Bob, I'll work on it. I've been kind of busy with selling my house (Yay!!!) but I'll get it done.

jayc
04-06-2010, 07:11 PM
OKay, here's my latest update. I added everyone's site number, so we can tell where we'll be. Sadly, I learned that Rick and Blanca had to cancel.

The registration now must go through the park, as registration is now closed through this site. Simply call the park at 281 298-8008 and ask for Melissa and she will try to get you a space with the group. We still have some sites, so if you have put off signing up, please call quickly and come party with us. We're gonna have another fun time!

We are going to have a wreck in site #98...

I found this
6. Buddy and Maureen Riddle - site #98
13. Pat and Lori Santaniello - site #98

That better be a wide or real long site..

04-07-2010, 06:02 AM
Oops Bob, I must have gotten something on my glasses and wrote down the wrong number. No, it was the computer's fault because I hit the 96 keys and somehow the computer wrote down 98. Yeah that's it, it was the computer.....

Got it fixed, thanks for catching it.

I don't know if he fixed the email address, but it works for me. I use Outlook and it brings it up properly and it is the same as I made my reservation.

Here is the email address from my email's to Rayford Crossing.. rayfordcrossing@sbcglobal.net

Works for me.

Well Jerry, my part of the sale is about $1.25, so thats your limit. We took a big hit on the sale, but it's a done deal now and thats all that counts.

I just wanted to let everyone know that theres a new car wash guy at the park, Dr. Detail. He said he is getting $125.00 for a wash and $200.00 for a wash and wax. He asked for a few days notice if we are having many rigs done so he can be sure of having a full crew. If anyone is interested, please let me know and I will notify the Dr.

Ken And Denise Moore are headed your way late on the 15th. Rayford indicated that we were in #82 (apparently a late cancelation opened #82). Looking forward to our first Rally. Better late than never.

Ken and Denise, we will be looking for you soon.

I heard some bad news from Ricky and Dee Cobb. Dee's father is very ill and they will not be able to attend. Please join me in keeping Ricky and Dee in your thoughts and prayers.

On edit, I see that there is a conflict on site #82. I will have to check with the office in the morning about who will be where.

Well,,,, we are on the road to the rally..... Left home today, George West, Tx,, made it to Columbus, Tx,,,, gonna stay a couple of nights at the Thousand Trails Colorado River Park to recoup... You know,, long drive,, beautiful flowers and country side.....almost got an overdose of color from the flowers.... did not get on a freeway at all today. Texas is beautiful this spring.

May need a recoup day to think about driving Beltway 8 and having to pay for it.....hate toll roads.

Soooo anyway..... we will be there Wednesday afternoon,,,,, ya'll get the margaritas ready... I will need one after the beltway///// most likely....

Met some folks in a Bighorn today.... did not know about forum or rally,,, will talk to them some more tomorrow,... they indicated they may drive up for the day Friday and visit.

Sounds like things are shaping up for another great gathering and rally. Diane and I are sorry that we have to cancel as we have really enjoyed the rallies and meeting new friends. We still look forward to Nashville and know that another opportunity to visit with many of you will just be a few months away.

Enjoy the Rally and be safe,

Jim, we were in Port Aransas for the Sandfest and received call from my brother in Corpus (Annaville)that his wife passed away. Funeral will be Friday and, of course, we had to bow out of the rally. Everyone else is fine and in due course will resume our travel to include Nashville and other sites along the way.

There is always a first time for everything, I have never posted before. Just wanted to say I have had a good time this weekend. Good food, making new friends and seeing old ones. Having fun listening to karaoke and trying to sing to two Collin Rays song. Won't be doing that again for awhile didn't do a very good job. Waited till almost everyone left then stood behind screen, but had fun. Now just have to get it past Jimtoo. Good nite see all next time.

We had great time at the rally. Enjoyed the good company and food. Looking forward to seeing everybody again in October. We made it home before it started raining. But then we got soaked when we went to put the 5th wheel in our storage stall. It stopped raining as soon as we got the doors locked.

Yep,, Jay did it again. Thanks Jay and thanks to Stella for putting up with Jay during all the preparations. (Of course Stella probably did most of preps anyway.) We had a great time and hopefully we can make the fall rally.

We did run into some really heavy rain just as we got to Sugarland area on Hwy 59 headed South...traveled about 30mph for about 12-15 miles..even the big rigs were moving slow... was really bad.

Sorry we missed seeing Jim B, Jay and Stella and some of the others before we departed this morning. But we did have a good time. And some more good news,,, our son and his wife got home this afternoon, so things are good.

Thanks Stella & Jay for a good rally, good food and most importantly good friends. Made it to Lakeview RV Resort in less than 1 hour and hit the rain while setting up. Rained so hard we just sat in the coach until it let up then finished setting up. Hope every one travels safe and see you on the road.

I too wish to commend Jay and Stella for another fine rally. I also want to recognize this as the 6th Heartland rally they've put on :)

Thank too to everyone who came. I think there were 22 rigs or so. We ended up with 16 club member rigs with 2 more joining the club at the rally. Thank you for supporting this club event!

Hey Jay,,,, I almost forgot,,,, did you get any help for me, on the rental space???I suppose the refund check is in the mail???/ And ,,,, no HOTDOGS,,,,,!!!,,,Just cold ham, turkey... beef deli sandwiches. chips,,, drinks,,, all the trimmings.... supplied by Ron Hover RV's ,,, they were good,,, but,,,, do they beat a HOT DOG???? Yeah.... I guess they do... they were enjoyed by eveyone...including me.

A big thanks go to Ron Hover RV for our lunch and providing a couple of units for everyone to look at.

Thanks to all who helped, Especially Jay and Heartland RVs, and Jim B.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. As always, it was fun putting it on and having such a good time. I'm going to try to work harder on the October rally to get one of the local dealers to bring a Bighorn and a Landmark out so Charlie will have something to take home with him.

Now if only this rain will let up so we can get started on our next trip to Elkhart.

See everyone in October!

:) You're welcome, Jim! That's one thing that my "Cowboy" is always happy to do - sing! AND I wanted to say that Bette did a great job with her two songs and we look forward to hearing more of her singing anytime. Next time we run into each other, she may want to come by and spend a little private time rehearsing at our rig so that she can get used to the song layout beforehand. We're always happy to help people find their "right pitch"!

We had a great time at the rally too. Thanks to Jayc and his DW for pulling this together and everyone else that pitched in to make it a special time. We look forward to seeing ya'll again sometime.

Thanks also to Jim B. for all of his tips and info on how to make better use of our "Nest". So much to learn........so little time, eh? :p

Blessings,

SueJean, DannyLee and Ariela Grace

Just wanted to thank you all so much for allowing me to be a part of your gathering this past weekend at Rayford Crossing. I appreciate your time and even more, your kindness and courtesy.

I hope to see you all in October (God willing).

I am planning to make a good home made chicken and sausage gumbo (okra on the side) and maybe some venison and beef chili for lunch for that one (really feel bad about the cold sandwiches by the way).

I also plan on having a Landmark and a maybe another trailer on show for that one.

Anyway, thank you all again for letting me be there and I look forward to having you all meet my wife next go round.

I think maybe I did something wrong here, so I am writing this again. If it actually shows up twice ... sorry.

I just wanted to thank all of you for letting me be a part of your meeting. I appreciate the kindness and courtesy of each of you very much.

I apologize for the cold sandwiches and pop we served for lunch and I plan 110% to serve the tastiest chicken and sausage gumbo(or duck and venison) and maybe some chili with venison also in October to make up for it. Of course, my wife will be the cook. Of course I will bring the Princess Gretchen the Schnauzer also and her brother the brat Toby the Schnauzer also.

We will also have a Landmark and another 5th Wheel yet to be determined at that one also.

Again, thank you all so much and God (and Jay) willing, I will see you all in October.

Happy and safe RV'ing.

Thanks again,

Kevin
