Additional Info:
------------------------------
We're planning a 3rd Luncheon/Open House at the Ron Hoover RV store in Donna on February 10, 2011 from 11:00AM 'til 1:00PM. We had such a good time last year, that we're going to do it again.

Like last year, the luncheon will be from 11AM 'til 1PM at the dealership. Hot dogs and hamburgers with all the trimmings will be served.

Door Prizes will be given and best of all, discounts on new units will be offered. If you're thinking of trading for a new unit, now would be a great time to do it!

Please, if you know of another Heartland owner that is not on the forum and doesn't know about this event, let them know about it.

I've got everyone down. The only thing I can think of right now is to get the word out to all the Heartland owners that aren't on the forum. We'll be down there on the 23rd or 24th of January and planning to stay at Mission West again.

Let's mobilize the "Heartland Army" again, like we did last year to post fliers on the activity boards in your winter CGs and on Heartland units in your winter CGs. Jay and I will work up the flier and get it posted on this thread for downloading and printing around Feb 1.

In addition to an owner appreciation event, we'd also like to make this a nice "reach out" opportunity to non-Heartland owner friends of yours, also wintering in the RGV. Bring them along to show them the product, drink the Heartland Kool Aid, possibly win some free stuff and definitely have some free food :)

Jay,

We should be able to make it, although we are arriving back in Tx from a cruise on the 9th and may be jet-lagged somewhat.

We will be there for sure !!
We are staying at Canyon Lake RV park in Mission.
If someone can post some kind of flier for the event we can print a few & pass them out in the Park.

Jay,

Myself and Nelly have solidified our travels across the lower 50 from the east and have found a spot to park in Edinburg so we will be able to attend the Open House. Nelly thinks I'm crazy to drive that far south just for a "free lunch" but I look at it as more than a free burger. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Admit it Kevin, you are a rallyholic and these shows (Tampa, Donna...) are as close as you can get to a rally in the winter :)

Be great to see you both again, and again :)

Jim, I'm still considering how to respond to this. Paybacks are he|| ya know. Beside, I didn't get any Gruel from the boss so I have to eat 5 burgers to make up for it. :-)

Hi Dick,

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.

The Dealer open house is a good event. You will meet quite a few other owners at the luncheon or open house. Invite your friends that don't have a Heartland product also as this is a way to introduce them to Heartland and the dealer and other owners.

Don't know how long you will be staying in the RGV, but a Heartland Chapter Rally (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/19297-EVENT-Heartland-Chapter-Rally-TX-Spring-4-15-2011-to-4-17-2011?p=150133) will be in Spring, TX in April 15-17, incase you can hang around.

Enjoy the forum.

Jim M

Hi Dick, I'll add you and Jane to the list of attendees. As Jim said, bring your friends to this get-together. We'll be looking forward to seeing you in February.

As Jim said, if you can' stick around the RGV until our April rally in Spring. Please check it out HERE (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/19297-EVENT-Heartland-Chapter-Rally-TX-Spring-4-15-2011-to-4-17-2011?p=150133).

OK, I never said I'd eat 5 burgers. That was Jim I think. I was making that comment because there are gonna be a lot of friendly Heartland folks there. And Jim McGee. I think he gets Gruel.
