Alright!! This looks like it's rapidly shaping up to be a real nice get together!!:D I've added everyone to the list so far..keep'em coming!

01-09-2011, 01:11 AM
Looking forward to it. I'll bet we can hit the outdoor seating capacity!

Those bringing other couples with them - which is encouraged, please have your friends bring a dish to share as well, or double the size of your own planned dish. Hate to run out of chow :)


01-10-2011, 11:21 AM
Just talked to Kathy. J.D. and I plan to attend the meet-n-greet. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

01-10-2011, 11:24 AM
Hey CJ...just added you and JD to the list, and another couple who called Ron and Dorothy Wagner...this is gonna be alot of fun!!!:D

01-10-2011, 02:02 PM
Just added another couple I spoke to in Bentsen Palm Village RV park, next door, Jerry and Karen Smith and added them to the list...we're now up to 24 attendees already...:cool:

Just heard from another couple who will be headed this way soon, Jerry & Karen Vredeveld, they've been added to the list and will join us on the 9th...:D

01-11-2011, 09:55 AM
I hope all these folks are coming to the dealer open house the next day!

01-11-2011, 03:47 PM
Just added Rick and Blanca (travler07) to the list. They are up at Falcon Lake workkamping and will be coming down for the event...

Don't worry Jay, we'll make sure we get as many as possible over to the open house the next day...can't imagine too many will pass up the opportunity!!

01-11-2011, 08:08 PM
Thanks Kathy, you're doing a great job and I know that most will be at the open house.

01-11-2011, 08:58 PM
Please add Nelly and myself to the list. I don't see a problem for us to make it from Corpus Christi to Edinburg, get the Landmark set up, prepare a dish to share and make it to Mission by 4:30. Seems like a fun-filled day ended with extreme fun and food with fellow Heartlanders. What more could one ask for in life. See you in Texas. Guess I need to get out of Florida first.


01-11-2011, 10:33 PM

I am predicting right now that you and Nelly may obtain the 2011 record for number of Heartland events attended :). I love it!

See you this week in Tampa!


01-12-2011, 10:29 AM
Kevin and Nelly, you've been added to the list and look forward to seeing you there!!:D

Hi Herbiesrig,

This is the Portal Page or first page you should see. (//heartlandowners.org/content.php) This page is full of links. All the rally info on the right side is clickable. Each listing will take you to more information about the rally or to the rally page. Also all the supplier links are listed. Each of the pictures of the different Heartland brands is clickable and will take you to the area of the forum for that brand. This forum is really a clicker....point and click and you will go there.

Hope this helps.

01-29-2011, 11:32 AM
I went around to a few parks yesterday and found a few people that didn't know about the open house or the potluck dinner. Larry and Rita Thompson, Bill and Cheryl Thompson, Marvin and Carla Pruter, Dick and Marcia Kalmes, Dale and Cindy Sanford, Ray and Judy Seaton and Dave and Char Zimmrman all said they will be there.

01-29-2011, 12:05 PM
WOW!! Thanks Jay...they've all been added to the list which is now up to 66!!:D

Gonna be alot of great people, food and fun...can't wait!!:cool:

Boy Jay...you must have been really busy...just heard from Joseph Dorsey, he and Gene Herzog, along with Ed and Ellen Crape will also be at the meet-n-greet...that makes an even 70..:cool:

01-29-2011, 02:21 PM
It kept me out of trouble yesterday. I plan to go out again a couple of times. Just about everyone I spoke with said they were not on the forum and knew nothing about the events.

01-31-2011, 08:33 PM
Just heard from Jim and Janice Davis who will joining us...

01-31-2011, 08:46 PM
I went to a few more RV parks around Donna-San Juan-Alamo area today and spoke with several Heartland owners. None knew about the events, the forum or the club. They were all interested and said they will call if they can come.

02-06-2011, 09:04 AM
Just added Ron and Sandra, they are coming with the Davis'...that makes 76!!

Let's make that 78...almost forgot to add Corbet and Slora Tayloe...Can't wait till Wednesday!!

I hate to bring this up but with the wind and lowering temps it's going to be a little airish.I'm hoping this is going to be moved indoors ?.

02-09-2011, 12:12 PM
Weather will NOT be an issue...we are moving the pot-luck into the Retama Club...it's a beautiful private club with full kitchen facilities, lounge area, billiards, etc....we may be a little cramped with almost 80 attendees, but we've actually had more than that for other events without issue...see you all soon!!

Happy Campers
02-09-2011, 12:25 PM

Kathy, Thanks for all of your efforts to host this event. Lin & I had a great time. My only wish would have been to be able to meet everyone attending.
