The WI rally is August 12 - 14, 2011, because the Heartland national rally is in mid June.

Please fell free to suggest an activity or event for our rally. If you have an opportunity to obtain a door prize for the WI rally please jump at the chance and bring the item to the 2011 rally. Your help obtaining door prizes is greatly appreciated. Safe and happy travels to all.

Hi Herbiesrig,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. We have a great bunch of people here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge if needed.

You are welcome to any part of the forum. On the front page, "portal page" or "front page", you can click on any of the pictures to be taken to that specific brands forum. You can participate in any of the threads. The only one that will not post as soon as you enter it is the "Ask The Factory" threads,,,, they are moderated.

Enjoy the forum and your Landmark.

Herbiesrig, You are very welcome to join our group, and the Heartland product you have does not make a difference. We like them all. If you would like to register for the 2011 WI rally use the contact info found at the start of this thread. Also, be sure to consider joining the Heartland Owners Club. You can get all the info on the club by clicking on Owners Club tab at the top of the page. The Owners Club has a number of positive benefits.

Herbiesrig, welcome. If you like to travel then you should consider making some chapter rallies. WI would be a good one as well as MI.
I see you are in the UP aye? We have been to three MI rallies. We try and make as many as we can in one season. Six Heartland rallies this year. Our friends from Erie PA have made, I believe seven. So you see they can be fun.
Hitch up that Landmark next summer and we will see you at some rally. Be sure to check out the June Goshen rally.

Peace
Dave

The WI rally is "only" 4+ months away, but it is not too early to register. In fact we have a total of 10 units, including Gerry & me, already registered. Paul and Sue Alfano (Alf) were the first to register. Those that followed are Bob & Lynn Schmid (Saukville Bob), Jerry & Karen Vredeveld (JerryV), Jim & Jan Quella, Dave & Mary Hromek (Cookie), Mike and Chris Born (born2roam), Reg and Nancy Hromek (Convert), Jerry & Jaci Volden (jnv), and Larry & JoAnn McCullen. Fifteen sites are being held, but the earlier you register the easier it will be to add additional sites when they are needed. So, please consider registering ASAP. By the way, Jim B., have you made the call to 608-253-2132? If not, what is the delay?

Heartland, Goshen Rally Heads Up: Those of you attending the Goshen rally please mark you calendar for the WI Pot Luck Meet & Greet. On Wednesday, June 15, Gerry and I will holding the WI Pot Luck Meet & Greet on site 408. A formal invitation with detailed information will be sent out to the WI and MN members at a later date. Wednesday, June 15, is currently an open evening on the Heartland rally schedule, so consider joining us for a great time. Maybe Alf will start to warm up his grilling skills so he is ready for the WI rally. What do you say, Paul?

I believe you have made a “GREAT” choice in having ALF be the "Grill Master". There is no better pleasure in life than to sit around the grill, with a cold one in hand, and watch Alf do his magic over a hot grill. I am always amazed at his technique and control of the situation. He is an artist at the grill. His grilled pizza was the best I have ever had.

WI Chapter Rally Update: Thank you for contacting me regarding registration for the August 12 -14 rally. We now have 12 rigs officially registered, and waiting for Jim B. to be number 13. Here is the list of those registered for the August 12 - 14 WI rally. If there is an error, or you registered and are not on the list, please contact me ASAP. Tom/Gerry Weber, Paul/Sue Alfano, Bob/Lynn Schmid, Mike/Chris Born, Jerry/Karen Vredeveld, Jim/Jan Quella, Dave/Mary Hromek, Larry/JoAnn McCullen, Reg/Nancy Hromek, Jerry/Jaci Volend, Michael Numberick, and Bruce Bishop. There are only 2 sites being held open for our rally, and when I spoke to Terri Lynn at Country Roads on Sunday, April 03, I was informed that our chances of getting more sites is currently not looking too promising. So, if you are planing on joining the WI group at Country Roads Motor Home & RV Park please make your reservations ASAP. Call 608-253-2132 to make your reservation, and after making reservations please send me a message confirming your rally reservation. Happy travels to all.

What's up Wisconsin! Always wanted to say that :)

Okay, Tom rode me pretty hard so I decided to get him off my back :) Spoke to Terry today, she's feeling better but still under the weather. She placed me on rally site 37. I am arriving on 12-Aug. Sorry I can't get there sooner. I'll be there for 5 nights.

See y'all in Wisconsin and many of you in Goshen and parts in between, before August.

I think Jim B and I have taken the last 2 available sites. So sad... Tom, we may have to look for a park with more availability in the future?? How big is Walmart's lot?

tweber
04-06-2011, 03:49 PM
Actually Jim B. and Ray reserved the the 13th and 14th sites respectively. There is 1 site still available. Fifteen sites were reserved, and that is and increase of 5 over the previous year. There still may be other sites available at Country Roads. Any one interested in attending the WI Chapter rally call Terri Lynn, 608-253-2132, make your reservation and then send me a message so I can add you to the rally group. I have to keep an accurate list of those attending for Grill Master Paul. Happy travels to all.

Ray is correct. The "pot luck" does run Friday through Sunday afternoon. However, the Grill Master"s feast will begin at 5:00 P.M. (1700 hours). If anyone has contacts that can be used to obtain door prizes, please consider helping out our WI Chapter, and try to obtain door prizes for our rally. The dealer from whom you purchased your Heartland unit may be willing to donate items to be used as door prizes. Please consider asking. Thank you.

Who is coming in on Thursday? Tom, do you know if Country Roads has a large covered grill? I was thinking of doing some chicken wings as a Thursday afternoon snack.

Saukville Bob
04-10-2011, 06:20 AM
I accept the challenge! It will be an honor and a privilege to apprentice under the “GREAT ONE”. It is not every day that Grill Master Alf will share his vast knowledge and skills. I will have to resurrect the humble cooking skills I learned many years ago working at the Big Boy restaurant in West Allis.

Saukville Bob

We will be there on Thursday. We have a Weber 18” table top charcoal grill. Do you want us to bring it?

I have a Weber Q but the racks for the wings won't fit under the lid. I need a normal sized grill, either gas or charcoal (best option). I have an old Weber kettle I could bring if I can get the legs off. If the campground has a grill we'll be fine. Thanks for the offer though...

Yes....it is not a rumor. The "Grill Master" has accepted the challenge and welcomes Saukville Bob as Grill Master Apprentice! He always needs someone to do his fetching.

04-10-2011, 08:06 PM
Thanks, Ray. Chicken on Thursday is a great idea. Yes, Country Roads does have a large covered propane grill. It is in the shelter, and we use it to prepare the pot luck meat. It is not too easy to move great distances. I would have to check with Terri Lynn to clear using it on Thursday.

Saukville Bob
04-10-2011, 09:36 PM
Today I attended my first grilling lesson given by the “Grill Master” Alf. We did not even fire up the grill for the lesson. Today I learned the number one “Most Important” thing to keep the Grill Master happy. Have plenty of beer and make sure it is cold. This grill training is going to be tough! I will do my best to not disappoint any of the Wisconsin HOC members.

WI Chapter Rally Update: Fifteen rigs have registered for the August 12 - 14 rally @ Country Roads, Lake Delton. Three rigs are from MI, but Dan & Kathy Halverson are official WI Chapter members. Any one still interested in attending the rally should give Terri Lynn a call, 608-253-2132, ASAP. The number of rigs has increased about 50% over 2010, and 100% since 2009. That is outstanding. Gerry and I are looking into group rates for Dells boat rides and Dells duck rides. If any one has suggestions for other activities please email us so we can investigate them, tank67tommy@gmail.com. Happy camping and travel safe.

Welcome Don & Kathy to the WI Chapter of the HOC. Glad you were able to contact Terri Lynn and make your reservation for the WI Rally, June 12 - 14. You are not the only Gophers attending the rally. John & Sue Younger are also from MN, and they will be at the WI rally, too. I can assure you that, as Ray describe it, "expanding your horizon" will be easily accomplished. We are looking forward to meeting you in Goshen. Again, welcome to the WI Chapter.

Gerry and I are currently spending a few days at Country Roads Motor Home & RV Park. We will be meeting with Terri Lynn to go over plans for our WI Chapter rally in August. For example, there has to be enough fire wood on hand so Grill Master Alf can prepare his famous "Like the Indians Done It" Pizzas. We also want to look into group rates for a number of different Dells attractions, suck as the Original Ducks or the Upper/Lower Boat Rides. If any one else has a suggestion for a Dells attraction please let me know and we will check it out and report back. Happy camping to all.

05-12-2011, 09:28 PM
Gerry and I received a number of messages asking who is attending the WI Chapter Rally, August 12 - 14. I am happy to report there are 19 rigs registered for the rally.

Information will be sent soon requesting your input for a Saturday activity. Please watch for it. If you are attending the National Heartland Rally and plan on attending the WI Chapter Meet & Greet Pot Luck, but have not notified us of you intention, please send us an email stating you will be attending the Meet & Greet, Wednesday, June 15 at 5:00 at site # 408.

It was my pleasure Paul. Whenever I see a Heartland arriving in the dark, I know an extra flashlight being held by someone who knows the campground is usually a plus.

Jay/Stella and Ray/Lin - see you guys soon.

The "token Texans" are having a good time. We enjoyed a nice campfire last night and making new friends. Much cooler here than Texas has been.

I read this morning that Dallas didn't break the record for consecutive 100 degree days when a cold front came through and it only got up to 97 yesterday.

I have to say I'm jealous of all of you! Being a Wisconsinite (transplanted in AL due the Army!) I'm wishing that we could have made it to the rally. Having been in WI for the entire month of July and leaving on August 6th (due to the Army, once again!) we are quite sad that we just missed you all! Have a wonderful time and we sure are hoping that we can make the next rally!:)

We had a fun filled day today. Breakfast, winery wine tasting, cheese and crackers meet and greet all finished off with campfire pizza. Not to mention the iced Cinnamon buns at Denny's. Denny's corner restaurant that is.PeaceDave

Another great day at the WI rally. Great breakfast, Upper Dells boat ride, pot luck feast, and a warm evening fire. Thank you goes to Leonard Wagner, Wager RV Sales, Green Bay, WI for sponsoring breakfast on Saturday, and Jeff Peterson, Scenic RV, Slinger, WI for sponsoring the meat for the pot luck on Saturday. Their support is greatly appreciated.

Lynn and I would like to thank both Jim and Tom for all the pre-planning, and behind the scenes logistics they have to do to put together such a "GREAT" event. Without them none of this would have happened.

Thanks Bob and Lynn. Trust me - Jim did no planning. It was all Tom and Gerry. I was always in the background for support for Tom.

Thank you Tom and Gerry, Bob and Lynn, Paul and Sue and all who really helped out to make this another great WI rally!

And the rally continues. A group of us went to Wollersheim Winery yesterday and a group went out last night to Ho Chunk Casino for a little food and fun. Most are leaving today (Monday) with a few of us holding over longer. Other than some rain, the weather has been outstanding!
