Didn't see much interest generated here yet. But we are considering this, looking to see how it will pan out with our other travel plans.

10-24-2011, 08:54 PM
We plan to be there! We've attended pretty well all of the Titanium Rallies and Re-unions there since they commenced, so we know the park and area well. Kingston is a nice city, lots to see and do, and many good restaurants.

Do you plan on getting sites in the L and M rows?

10-24-2011, 10:40 PM
We are also working out a schedule with this rally on our planned travel route.

10-26-2011, 12:33 PM
Glad to hear that some new members are interested in our 2012 Ontario rally. We have 25 sites booked for now with more available if needed. It is a very nice campground and a great bunch of regulars that attend every year. Our rally is growing every year and we are hoping this will be the biggest and best yet. If you need any info just send me a message and I'll get back to you. Hope to see you all there.

Dale and Alice Smith plan on being in attendance at this rally. I would think that I will probably have a tag along of my brother and and sister-in-law, whom many of you know from last year's rally! I'm trusting that they are still welcome!

The rally last year in McGregor was very well done and a lot of fun.

We look forward to this again this year.

Dale :)

Dale and Alice.
Glad to hear you will be attending again this year. Your brother and sister in law are always welcome. See you then.

We are planning to attend the Ontario Rally this year at Rideau Acres Campgrounds. Looking forward to seeing everyone

Hey Charlie and Jane. The rally wouldn't be the same without you guys. Glad to hear you are coming.

We were at Rideau Acres for our annual Titanium Reunion last week and reserved our site for September. Rideau Acres weren't sure of the rally cost at the time and just charged us the normal one night fee for a deposit. Are we going to get a better rate or would it be advantageous to use Passport America?

I'll be emailing Joanne the fee shortly. What exactly does this cover?

If you need a hand arranging anything, let me know. I often compile trivia quiz's for rally's, and could do one if there is interest. I also live close to Morry's, and could twist Eric's arm for draw prizes if required.

The site fee is $40.19 per nite tax in for the rally. The $20 fee is for a pizza supper on friday nite and breakfast on sunday morning. It is $10 per person. Looking forward to seeing you. Any donations are always gratefully accepted and appreciated.

We've made our reservation today. We will arrive on Sept 06th and leave on Sept 10th (4 nights). Their email confirmation indicated $42.05 deposit and $190.07 for full payment ($42.05 x 4 + tax). We did indicate on the online reservation that we were with the Heartland rally. I have to call them tomorrow to give them my credit card information and I'll mention that my understanding is that the cost was to be $40.19/night, tax included. I'll let you know if this is a problem although I don't expect any.

I'll be mailing a cheque to Joanne when we get back in Canada in July.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the rally.

I just emailed $20 to Joanne. Per your last reply to me, would you like me to approach Eric at Morry's for some door prizes? I don't want to duplicate someone else's effort's, but I know Eric well, and Morry's is quite close to us.

06-23-2012, 07:30 AM
Bill That would be great. We can use all the support we can muster.



06-27-2012, 12:33 AM
This will be our first Heartland Owners event. I guess I'm just curious about what's being planned. Any golf by chance? If not I've got a son-in-law there that I can force into going out for a round I guess. ;)

06-27-2012, 05:39 AM
No golf is organized for this year. We did play last year but only 6 of us played. We hope to be going to the Casino on sat afternoon.

If anyone is interested The Landings is a 18 hole executive course that has a "4 play for the price of 3" deal. For future reference if the group visits the area again there are great dinner cruises available at a pretty good price too. I think Bill can vouch for that.

I look forward to meeting fellow Heartland owners in September.

I also look forward to seeing WillyM, we have met before; I used to have a Titanium 32E37 and if I recall correctly is was he who helped me trace a weird electrical issue with it at a Titanium Owners Group rally at Rideau Acres some years ago!

Tim Barr & JoAnn Boissoneault.

On Edit:

I'd love to join in a round of golf, if the other participants don't mind going out with a real 'hacker', and I recall a wonderful dinner cruise from that other rally.

07-29-2012, 07:15 PM
I look forward to seeing you again Tim. I remember the reversed wires (ground and neutral) on your trailer well. We still attend most Titanium rallies, including the annual Kingston Reunions.

08-13-2012, 06:59 AM
i play golf jon and if the chance is there to play i would play. have to see what rally schedule is like.

08-13-2012, 12:52 PM
Jon & Mike,

I'll have my golf clubs with me, so I can play if time permits. Beware, I'm not that good.

Sooo... one more to make a foursome. If not the 3 of us can go.

08-14-2012, 05:59 AM

Hope everyone's having a great rally in Ontario this weekend!

We had a great time at our 2012 Ontario Rally. The weather held up for us. We had campfires every nite and again the potluck dinner was fabulous. I think a good time was had by all. Thanks to all the regulars and a special thanks to all the newcomers for their support.

We had a great time, met a bunch of nice people, ate a bit too much but that's to be expected when there's so much good stuff. I'm planning on going to the national rally in Goshen next year (June 18 - 23) on the recommendation of everyone who's been to one.

A great big thank you to Rick & Joanne for organising a great rally, arranging all those fabulous gifts and making it all come together.

We had a great time and enjoyed seeing the people we met last year and meeting some ones. Thanks to Rick and Joanne and their helpers for putting this on. We'll miss next year's planned rally and he big one in Goshen, but we're game for a get together in September if anyone is interested for an informal rally, say in Toronto or Niagara. As for the spring rally, consider having a "tech" session, where people with issues or interesting RV experiences can share them with the group and maybe get some help. With my SOB group, some owners would also volunteer to open their rigs for showing or hold a "show and tell" to demonstrate neat accessories/gagdets, or modifications they they had. We also set up a sale or give away table for items that we didn't want.

We had a great extended weekend a the Ontario Chapter rally at Rideau Acres, Kingston.
Thanks to Rick and Joanne and everyone for their hard work to make this rally another success for the Ontario members.

09-11-2012, 10:13 PM
yes it was another great ontario rally. thanks to joanne and rick for a job well done and congrats to bob and christine for being passed the torch to keep the ontario chapter going. was nice to hook up with some friends we have not seen since last year. unfortunately our rv'ing year is coming to an end soon while some of you will be going south. have a great time as i know i would. we like bill and margaret's idea for a show and tell and tech session next year. keep the idea's coming everyone.

09-13-2012, 11:27 PM
Thanks for a great time! It was great meeting everyone in Kingston. We haven't managed to find our way home yet but should be there some time next week. Just enjoying the quiet of the Bruce Peninsula during the off-season.
