Lance, Randy and Santha have not signed up yet because we are going to be very busy the month of October. Santha is going to retire next week
so She would say yes but I have conference in Charleston Oct-16-20th. We will make every effort to attend. Now that is said if you notice on the
portal page of the forum I have announced the Georgia Rally will be labor day weekend in Dillard Georgia. We hope you can join us.

Lance, It is looking like we might be able to attend the first Lance and Kem rally. The Poodles said if it was just Lance there was no way.
Why are they scared of you? It was just a video. Something about a big rock makes them nervous. They suggested a grilled T-Bone
steak would help the mental recovery. Talk to Santha and the poodles next week in Waynesville. Good luck

Spent last 2 days trying to reach David Paschal to make reservations, even talked with Jim Chaffin who passed it off saying only David could work reservations for groups. :confused: Did finally have Debbie call back today, and she at least took the information, so now waiting on e-mail from them giving confirmation and site number. This may take more days of waiting. Well Lance, as they say, "God willing and the creek don't rise", we plan on rallying with y'all. Will let you know when I know.:p

Hmmmmmm, David said both he and Jim were handling groups?? I have heard from serveral folks that Debbie, who does "normal" reservations, has been assisting them. You should get a email confirmation within 24 hours.

You are def in a nice tree area, however folks get their dishes through the trees in sites at that end of CG. If I were you, bring LOTS of movies!! It is a decent area for over the air channels.

We're in - and are looking forward to seeing some familiar Heartlanders again - this will be our 2nd rally.
Park pics look great! We're in site 53, arriving 10/31 leaving on 11/4. Not sure how we got an ADA site (53) -- I'm kind of thick headed at times but don't think that fits the criteria. If anyone going qualifies for it, let us know - and we'll take an alternate site (but not too far away from the pizza).

Russell DeShields, is my business partner and friend for more than 35 years. Russ & his wife, Anita, knew me BEFORE I was married to my wonderful bride Kem. YES, he probably has some, (totally fictitious), stories of my past!!!
Russell & Anita have been watching us have all this fun with the Heartland group and recently purchase a 2002 SOB fifth wheel to test the "waters".....he says "I would have bought a Heartland, but they just don't have any 2002 models I like!!!" I keep telling him he WILL have a Heartland product in the near future!!

Due to an unplanned need to head out west this fall, we must regrettably cancel our reservations for the Waxhaw event. That's the bad news. The good news is that at least we will be RVing for an extended period as we traverse this big country in our Big Country.

***HEARTLAND GIVES BACK***

In an effort to continue an awesome "tradition" that we have experienced at several rallies, I wanted to reach out to a Union County group that has a tremendous outreach in the Waxhaw, NC area. The H.E.L.P. Crisis Pregnancy Center exists to represent the voice of the UNBORN child. They also feel called to extend the offer of hope and healing to the Post-Abortive Woman. There are many other FREE services that they make available for men, women and babies before and after critical "life" decisions. Below you will find links to their "Urgent Needs" list and more detailed information about the organization. Both cash and "items" are appreciated and can be dropped off at our site (63) by dinner time Saturday.

Thank Your Heartlanders!!

Cool! Gate code if locked is 5444. They lock it at 6pm I guess.

When you get close, if the GPS says you've arrived and you are at an intersection, keep going straight ahead rather than taking a turn to the right. Follow the road in and when you get to a T, you'll see locked gates to the right to a group area. Go left towards the family camping area. When you get to the campground, don't go up the tiny hill, take a right and start looking for your site. You will find me on a curve and you are further down, on the right. Drive safe and see you soon!

Rallying at Cane Creek State Park in Waxhaw, North Carolina

We caravanned with our friends, Ed and Barb R (brauch) from their home in Statesville, NC to Cane Creek State Park near Waxhaw, NC for the North Carolina Chapter of the Heartland Owners Club's fall rally. It was a short 2 hours trip here. We arrived around 1 pm. We're all setup in site 39.http://www.beletti.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Cane-Creek-State-Park-Site-39-Waxhaw-NC.jpg (http://www.beletti.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Cane-Creek-State-Park-Site-39-Waxhaw-NC.jpg)

They made over a dozen pizzas from scratch - yum! Thirty-two people came by Paul and Sue's for pizza. We all had a great time visiting

Yup, that is Dorothy's jar. If it is not too much trouble, hold onto it until we meet again. You are coming to Camp Hatteras, ... aren't you? I mean, we Virginians are holding our rally there just so that you and Kem will not have to travel out of state.
