View Full Version : 2013 Goshen Rally - Registration Process

09-27-2012, 03:00 PM
Registration for this rally is on track to begin sometime in the second half of January. Registration for this rally will be limited to 300 rigs.

Here's the plan:

CORE TEAM LEADERS will be offered a chance to register first. This ensures they get a spot at the rally and allows us to stress the registration application. Any bugs that turn up during this short window of fewer than 10 registrations will help ensure future registrations work more smoothly. This process will take 3-days.

2011 RALLY ATTENDEES THAT ARE CURRENT CLUB MEMBERS will then be offered their 2011 rally sites and a chance to register for the rally, in those sites or they may elect to be re-sited elsewhere. This registration window will be opened for a few days.

CURRENT CLUB MEMBERS will then be offered a chance to register for the rally. This registration window will be opened for a few days.

ALL HEARTLAND PRODUCT OWNERS will then be offered a chance to register for the rally. This registration window will be opened until no sites remain.

A WAITING LIST process will be in place for those who are not able to get their registration in before all sites are gone. TRUST THE WAITING LIST PROCESS! The cancellation rate for this rally will be about 20%. That's 60 rigs that will register, then cancel at some point. In past years, 100% of those who got on the Waiting List - GOT INTO THE RALLY!

Please visit the rally discussion thread (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/32122) to discuss this rally or to post questions about it.

Thank you and see you in Goshen!

UPDATE: We are pushing the start of registration out to the second half of January. Registration will NOT be open in December as previously planned. I will keep everyone posted in the rally discussion thread (http://w.heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/32122) as we get closer. Then emails will go out to club members when we're all set.

Registration for the rally will begin tonight for ALL Heartland Owners Club members.

Each of us have an email address tied to our Forum/Owners Club profile. I will be loading those addresses into the Rally Registration site.

Tonight, I will be sending Club Members an email to those email addresses. That email will have the rally registration link in it.

The first part of the registration process asks you for your email address. Here's where it's critical that you use the same email address that is tied to your Forum/Club profile.

Hope this makes sense :)

All club members may now register. An email was sent out tonight. It may take some time for all 1,110 members to receive it. Here's the link to the registration site (https://www.regonline.com/2013Goshen).

Tomorrow, Thursday, February 14th, later in the evening, we will be closing the window for 2011 Goshen Rally Returnees to reclaim their 2011 rally sites.

If you attended the 2011 Goshen Rally and have not yet registered for the 2013 Goshen Rally and you wish to reclaim your 2011 site, you must do so today or tomorrow.

Should you be unable to register by Thursday evening, you will still be able to register for the rally at anytime, so long as sites remains available.

By closing this window, as planned, we will be able to begin getting organized for site assignments for everyone.
