Looks like we are on our way to having a rally! I can't wait, I'm more excited about this than Christmas. At least when I'm with you guys I don't have to put up with the relatives LOL!

We'll also get our national rally caravan details finished up too.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

12-22-2011, 06:55 PM
Hi guys
I was looking at my itinerary for 2012 and we will be traveling north about this time. If I can work it in we may try to swing over to make this rally. We will be leaving the RGV and heading north to the Gillette Rally and try to meet up with some others in KC just before the rally. Not going to make a reservation until I can get my itinerary firmed up. Have you on my calendar...


12-25-2011, 09:37 AM
Larry, we're going to try to make it to the inaugural Oklahoma rally.

12-25-2011, 10:17 AM
Great Jay, We would love to have you there, hope more of your group can make it as well. Looking forward to seeing you'all again. We are looking forward to coming back to Canton too..

We would love to be able to make it but I have to work that weekend. I'm going to mark it down on my calendar is case something changes.

01-01-2012, 01:08 PM
We would really like to attend your first rally, but it is going to be tight as we have to be at ASU in Flagstaff, AZ for our granddaughter's graduation on 11 May. We are penciling it in and will register once our plans for the graduation are firm if we can make it. Mike

Wouldn't miss your Inaugural rally. And besides that, it kicks off our summer trip to the mountains.

02-14-2012, 01:15 AM
We may be able to make it to that one as well. We've been wanting to do Winstar for a while but haven't. Only maybe hour and a half to 2 hrs. Once I run it by the DW and we're free I'll get us registered. We need to fill that 1st OK rally, :)

02-14-2012, 08:30 AM
We will be proud to have you at our first of many rallies.. I am also sending you a PM ...

04-09-2012, 09:20 PM
We just purchased our first Heartland RV last October. It is a 2011 North Country Lakeside. We upgraded from a PopUp camper and had run into a couple that were camping in a Big Country and they had us convinced that this is the manufacturer we wanted! The rally looks like a lot of fun! Not sure we can attend this one but sure look forward to more!

04-11-2012, 05:19 PM
As of now we are official paid members and look forward to getting together with everyone soon! :D

04-11-2012, 11:05 PM
Glad to have you and welcome to the club. We hope to see you at our inaugural Oklahoma Rally. There are also sites available at Gillette for the national rally. We are caravaning up there and it'll be fun.

04-12-2012, 10:13 PM
Thanks for the warm welcome Hastey! We are discussing how we can make all the rallies. We have another in late June in Wisconsin. I will need to go back and read up on the caravan! :D

04-13-2012, 05:15 AM
NittyGritty, Glad to have you in HOC, WELCOME... We will also be pleased to have you as members of the Oklahoma Chapter. The newest Chapter and a fast growing Chapter we now have 13 rigs. We are looking forward to meeting you and going camping.. The season is just starting.. Our group will probably be going to the Texas Chapter Rally in Canton Texas again this year. Again WELCOME

05-14-2012, 09:15 PM
Glad to hear you are coming. Was there no one at the Windstar RV park to get you signed up? I just talked to one of the girls who works there and told her that I was with the OKHOC and there is a note or something in the computer.

05-15-2012, 04:59 AM
Great Angela, glad to have you and Johnathan signing up. Looking forward to meeting you. Anyone at the RV park can register you, just let them know you are with the Heartland Owners Group Oklahoma Chapter. See you there.

I spent the day yesterday off and on trying to call and reserve but no one ever answered the phone... ugh! But today I called back and we are in! We arrive on 24th and leave on the 28th! Johnathan and I are looking forward to meeting everyone!

Oh thanks for the phone call Larry! I just thought I should let you know it was received! :D

Well we've got another grand daughter graduation in the AM (this time kindergarden, not college like a couple of weeks ago) so we'll be leaving right after graduation, but probably won't get there until late afternoon tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

05-23-2012, 03:35 PM
We are here, set up and enjoying the Penguin II A/C we had installed in the front. Thinking about strolling over to the casino.

Well, the last 4 trailers are still here at the RV park. We had a great time visiting all day. After dinner everyone played a wild and rowdy game of Chicken Foot, which I was the winner........No I did not cheat! Thank you Larry and Donna, I know everyone still here had a great time during the whole rally!

05-29-2012, 12:23 AM

Donna and I are back home from first Oklahoma Chapter Rally. WOW what a great fun time was had by all. I hope this is the first of many rallies we have with the interest and participation of everyone there. Every time there was an activity everyone was there ready to go.. Several people took lots of photos, I will be posting them several places. I have sent a report of our rally to Debbie for the news letter.. [watch for it] A special big THANKS to everyone that came to the rally, you are the ones that made it a success. We are already starting to plan for a fall rally, and looking ahead for next years spring rally. I hope you'all will send me any ideas you have for the rally.. After all it is your rally. Let's make the next one even better.. Thank You all !!!! Larry and Donna

05-29-2012, 06:46 AM
We made it to Kansas last night. We had a great time, good job Larry and Donna!

05-29-2012, 07:09 AM
We had a GREAT time and are looking forward to the fall rally! Thank you Larry and Donna for all the hard work that you put into the preparation. If I can help you with anything in the future, let me know.

Thank you Larry & Donna, and Susan and all that made this rally so enjoyable! We cannot wait to see everyone again for another rally and we are really looking forward to Gillette!

Johnathan & Angela (Angela Posting)

05-29-2012, 08:34 PM
Well, we made it home OK and finally got time to sit down and write a post here. We really had a great time and lots of fun and lots of laughs too. It was great to see everybody again. Larry and Donna, you did a really bang up job with the rally and thanks ever so much for all your hard work. We're eagerly looking forward to the fall rally too. The trip to Gillette should be fun also.

05-29-2012, 09:13 PM
We are so glad everyone has made it home safely. Thanks to all for the wonderful threads about the rally. The fact that everyone had such a good time is plenty of thanks. I too am ready for another rally. I am going to be checking on some sites for it. If anyone has some good suggestions send them to me. I am endebted to all of you for being there and participating in all the activities. That is what makes a good rally... If we share this with all our members they will want to be at the next one and get some others to come as well.. Plus all our friends from Texas. So let's all get ready for Gillette and enjoy that rally. We will be traveling with most of you and we will see the rest there.

I wish we could have been at the rally. Sounds like you all had a good one. We are in Greenwood NE and making our way to Lusk Wyo @ BJ's Rv park then to Gillette. See you there.

About the pictures, you can contact JB and make album in the Heartland Gallery. I posted a number from the rally in Rayford Crossing..


05-30-2012, 05:30 PM
Super rally Larry and Donna! Worth every one of the three hundred miles we drove to attend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved meeting and getting to know better all of the attendees. Thanks to all who helped make this rally so great. I know a lot of folks helped. I think my only disappointment was when our super ladder ball team was soundly beaten. Thanks all. Mike and Peggy

05-30-2012, 06:40 PM
Paul and I got home about 2 hours ago. As all have said, a wonderful time, great rally. Last night at WinStar was a nightmare though. Severe storms about every two hours all night long. Looking foreward to the next rally. Nan

05-31-2012, 12:26 AM
Where should we post the pics? I have a few to add.
