Welcome to the Shore!! Glad to have you with us. However the closest I can get you is J3. As Glen and Fran are on the last Q site. If they would like to move over to another site along with you we can try to do that. Let me know after you look at the map and talk with the Schaaf's

WOW in six days we have filled 40% of our sites! Never in our wildest dreams did we expect the awesome response so quickly. It just goes to show how wonderful Heartland owners are. BTW just spent the day with John and Deb at the A/C RV Show helping out our friends at Crossroads Trailer Sales.

tom & mary

The show was not as good as it has been in the past. The slow pace gave us some nice time to sit in a Bighorn and chat with our friends. It was great seeing Pat and Lou again too! We appreciate the offer for dinner but as John is on 12 hour days we needed to get a quick dinner and get home. I really liked your organizational skills and the preview of your rally plans.

It's lookin' good so register for the 3rd NJ Rally before sites are gone!

11-11-2011, 09:59 PM
Tom - are the sites being held by you? Every site I checked for at the campground is unavailable?
Seems a little unrealistic to have so many transient sites taken a year in advance.

TomSt
11-12-2011, 07:48 AM
Sorry you are having difficulty with the campground. Please go back to the first posting of the rally, you will see the list of sites we have reserved and which ones have been filled. Then let me know or post which site you would like (except. Q1). Then you send your deposit to CG with site # on it. Hope this clarifies the issue

My Appologies to everyone!! Some how I transposed the address of the campground to 702 and it should be 720 Seashore Road.
I am sorry for any inconvience that this mistake may have caused anyone. If you have not received your cancelled check back this may be the reason.

I did talk to the Campground though and 702 is the Church that they attend---so they have been getting their mail just with an extra blessing :)

Hey,

Tho the company might a little bit suspect :eek: (Bylinski? Dean? Schaaf? Hicks? Proto? Clause?) we figured you might as well add some more outlaws :cool: to the mix! The Hills want to come to the party. :D Let us know what site we'll be on and I'll get payment off to the CG ASAP. Be great to see/meet new folks and dodge bullets from the old! We plan to arrive on 18 OCT and depart on 22 OCT.

That is awesome news Tom. At the 1st New Jersey Rally in Avalon we took a side trip to the Cape May Zoo. It is amazing what they do there working strictly from donations. Congratulations on finding your Give Back recipient!

TomSt
04-27-2012, 07:40 PM
I just spoke with the Seashore Campground to confirm our sites and names. We have just FOUR beautiful sites left!!! J 04, J06, J08 and Q1. It sounds like we should leave site J 21B open until last. Something about it being for close friends on J 21A??.

This evening we confirmed the reservation of the activities room for our exclusive use as follows:
10-19-2012, Friday from 5pm to about 9pm for our pot luck dinner.
10-20-2012, Saturday from 6am to 9:30am for continental breakfast and again from 5pm to 10pm for our dinner and awards meeting.
10-21-2012, Sunday from 6am to 9:30am for continental breakfast
Additionally on Thursday night and again Saturday afternoon we will be hopefully holding a small BBQ in the pavilion area. This could be moved to one of our sites if need be.

I guess this lets the proverbial cat out of the bag for part of the weekends plans.

Tom & Mary

Well our ten week tour of about fourteen states, the Gillette International Rally and the Cody Wyoming State Rally is near an end. So it must be time to get back to work on the NJ Rally. Updates to the front page will appear soon but here it is in a big nutshell…..
Ed and Barbara Raunch, Loren and Joann Smith plus Bob and Betty Floyd are joining us and regretfully we are losing the Millers to a prior engagement. John has done a lot of work to set up our Heartland Gives Back program with the Cape May Zoo and we are sorry that he will not be with us to see how generous the HOC members can be, THANKS JOHN. That being said I am looking for someone to step up and head up the collection and delivery of the donations to the Zoo.

I will be posting the donations requests on another post and place the posting number on the front page. The agenda for the weekend is in final development as well as the list of donors.

Tom & Mary

dbylinski
07-27-2012, 01:06 PM
Hi Tom,

Is it possible to contact the zoo and see if they will have staff available to pick up the donations at Seashore. Other chapter leaders have done this and invited the staff to dinner on Saturday. It may be worth a call to the zoo. This also allows them time to speak to the club about their projects and what our donations will do for the animals in their care.

If this is not possible, John and I will help you with the delivery as long as the plan fits into our schedule.

TomSt
07-27-2012, 06:16 PM
Attendees, here is the list of items that the Cape May Zoo has provided us with for our Heartland Gives Back donation. thanks

Items Needed:

Perfume/cologne (any kind)
Sturdy bird toys (bigger is better)
Wood blocks (for birds)
Natural twine and rope
Rawhides (medium to large); pigs ears
Non-plush dog toys (sized medium to large)
(Kong and Nylabone brands are best)
Fisher Price crib toys, sound toys, etc.

Catnip (dry or fresh)
Small CD players
Nature CDs
Balloons (not inflated!)
20 gallon aquariums with screen lids
Crayola modeling foam (for animal footprints)
Non-toxic paint (for animal paintings)
Picture Frames (8x10 or 11x14)
Canvas or sturdy paper (for animal paintings)
Aluminum Foil
Hand Soap
Dish Soap
Kitchen Knives
Scissors
Disinfectant Wipes
Round cake pans
Paper towels
Loppers (Branch Cutters)
Metal chain

I just wanted to apologize the the group and say how sorry I am for not being able to follow-through on what I started. Lisa and I were really looking forward to attending our first group rally and we were excited about helping with the give back program that will help such a great organization as the Cape may Zoo. I would encourage you all to inundate them with donations and show them that Heartland owners do really care.

dbylinski
07-29-2012, 09:11 AM
Hey John and Lisa don't fret none! Although we would love to have you and the kids with us, we understand that things happen and plans are always bound to change!

Hi Tom, We've not communicated before other than your welcome to me into the club. My wife and I would like to reserve J17 for the oct. rally. Let me know if this site is still available so I can contact the the CG. Thanks in advance, looking forward to meeting everyone!!! Ed

ok, reservation made deposit paid with one small snafu. J17 it seems is already occupied by a smith so I had to take J4. If J17 is available when I get there maybe I can swap it out. Either way looking forward to meeting all of you.Ed.

Ed, I have updated the site assignments, and will check with the CG to see what happened. I believe that someone cancelled and when they did the CG lost track of its dedicated status and it became an open site. I am quite sure that we will give these people a warm Heartland Welcome.

We say goodby to Calvin and Judy Hicks who are unable to make the rally
Aromatic Fusion, Inc joins as a donor (insect control)
and we got hit with a 'CHINA BOMB' 40 miles from Myrtle Beach. We are OK, trailer is hurt but movable. Funny but we had stopped and checked less that 60 miles prior on a short 180 mile run

Tom, sorry to hear about your tire bomb blowout. I'm glad you are okay. I had two China Bomb Blowouts driving across country and and had over $6,000.00 of damage to my Bighorn. After the second blowout changed all five tires. See you in Copake.

Hello all. Being new to the club, I haven't had the chance to meet any of you yet. That will change at the rally in Cape May 10/19-21. TomSt has graciously asked if I can help out with the Heartland gives back drive for the Cape May County Zoo, which I immediately accepted the responsibility for. The zoo is near and dear to my heart, and is the catalyst for some very happy memories when I was a kid. Please check out the donations list of things the zoo needs donated to continue their good work. I'll find it and repost it so it is nearer the top of the thread. I'm honored that Tom asked me to do this, and I'd like my first venture with the club to be successful. With that said, look into your hearts (and your storage areas) so that we can make this give back one to be proud of !!!! P.S. Cash always fits if you don't have any of the other items they need. I'm sure all of you will be as generous as possible to benefit the animals. There is no admission charge to the zoo. They operate strictly on donations. Once again I'd like to thank Tom for the opportunity. Ed

oldmannj
09-27-2012, 03:13 PM

TWO WEEKS TO GO! Posting #1 has been updated, made a boo boo and copy/pasted from MS Word. check changes on times for breakfast and the Saturday night dinner is now posted. Still need to confirm dinner time. There wil three rigs at the campground starting Monday the 15 so if anyone decides to come in really early company will be there.

FYI We just got the insurance estimate to repair our camper after the China Bomb hit us. I know a number of folks saw it at Copake and after reading this more might look at the NJ Rally. Thank God for trailer inusrance it costs about $350 a year but the repair to the trailer, and I thought it did not have that much damage, came in at $9,500.00. WOW at that rate you get about 25 years of insurance coverage for one repair. Seems well worth it so if you do not have insurance give it a second thought. BTW this is my second claim in almost 30 years. First claim cost almost $100,000.00 to replace trailer, tow vehicle and contents. Not a bad return on my investment.

We will be arriving at the campground today, and are looking forward to getting settled. I had checked out both mapquest and google maps for some directions, but the last few turns did not seem to be jiving with google earth, so we called the campground yesterday to get the accurate directions. I thought I would post the directions for anyone else out there who might be interested....
Garden State Pkwy to Exit 4A...which is Rt. 47N...
At the third traffic light take a left onto Railroad Ave.
Go about 2 miles...after going through a light, will see a Church on the right...the next right past that is Seashore Campsites.

The company I work for has a huge over abundance of spray bottles.

I'll be bringing dozens that are sitting unused in the attic.

Just wanted to let everyone know in case they were going to throw a few bottles in with their collection.

The office is thrilled to get rid of them.

Getting ready for dinner and the cake is too pretty to eat.

Want to thank Dina and her staff at Crossroads Trailer sales for a great dinner last night.

Thank you all for attending our first NJ Rally. Mary and I hope that you all had a good time and enjoyed the goodie bags and door prizes. Thanks to those who helped in any small way. We tried to make it so no one had to work all weekend.

Special thanks go to Ed Matulewicz for taking over the Heartland gives Back to the Cape May Zoo, I appologize for forgetting about him both times at dinner. We all need to give him a big job well done!

We also want to thank again our 'behind the scene' helpers without whom the rally would not have happened-Pat, Lou, John and Mary thanks again.
