Hi Hogan, we will put this on our calendar. You do mean GULF Shores, don't you?:confused:

Absolutely loved Gulf Shores this past springs rally. Nice state park :). Will have to see if we are still in AL next spring and if so would love to come again.

Please put Lily and me on the list. Wouldn't miss it. I'm sure it will be a full house once again, probably even more folks. Seems to get bigger each year.

Now Eric, you get the award for the first to find my cryptic challenge. Of course it is GULF SHORES. I was in a hurry trying to get the Rally on the books and stumblefingered, did not check my work before posting, then when I spotted it, went back and changed the line from which it came, but that did not change the banner line. I will have to seek higher powers ala Jimaletti for fixing that. Great to have so many quick postings. Lou and Bette, you are the rock. Always can count on you two. Jerry and Lily have posted they will be there also. And Nabo says they will be there if still in Alabama. So let's hope they stay PUT and make the Rally. So, to make it official, Donna and Hogan will be there too. Will get an attendee list started.

Add the traveling Talleys to your list. We had a great time at Gulf Shores last rally!

hogan
09-19-2013, 02:36 AM
Oh man, this Rally is growing quickly. The Traveling Talleys will be there and new members John and Alina Lindstrom from Palm City, Florida have said they will definitely be attending. Herm and Vickey from Morristown, TN are in the TN/KY Chapter and have said they will be attending Gulf Shores Rally. They want to spend at least a week so they will be right there with a bunch of us who come early for this Rally. If I remember correctly, there is a discount if you book a whole week at Gulf Shores State Park.

With all the good inputs we've received about the 2013 Gulf Shore Rally - we have to attend the 2014 rally!
We made our reservations today and will arrive on Monday (4/21) and leave on Monday (4/28).
Reservations were made with Emily at (251) 948-7275. One does get a weekly discount. However, the discount
works out to the rally rate of $26.35 + tax per night (at least that is my take on what Emily told me).
Looking forward to a great rally and seeing everyone!

Hello Terrell and Carol, So glad to have you join us for the AlaMissiBamaSsippi Rally down at Gulf State Park next April. I know you are going to love the park and the area in general. It is a really great place with so much to do. My daughter's family did the Zipline when they visited this summer and I intend to check it out in April. Also, you made a good choice by coming in early. Earlybirds check out the local eateries and some fine seafood to be enjoyed.

Only a few months till our Get-together down on the Bama Coast. If it's cold where you are, think how nice it will be at Gulf Shores in April. Best time of year for this region. No one from California has signed up yet. TandT where are you?

Here is the latest. The New Members, Mike and Shirley Kline from Evergreen Alabama have been added to the Attendees list. And Jan and Bill Raber were added yesterday. Jerry Worth emailed to say that the Car Show we enjoyed during last year's Gulf Shore Rally is going on again this year; same dates as our Rally. So we can look forward to driving over to The Wharf to see some beautiful Classic Autos along with several very unique showpieces. We will try to find out when they plan their parades and other activities so we can pass that along to you.

Kathy - you guys will enjoy this rally. Not only are Hogan and Donna great rally hosts as chapter leaders, but an amazing group of Heartlanders attends this event. Then there's the fact that it's GULF SHORES! Warm. And close to Pensacola Naval Air Station and many seafood shacks along the miles of beach.

hogan

Just added another couple to the Gulf Shores Rally list. Clay and Candy Hudson will be attending their first Rally in the Heartland Owners Club and they are making a full week of it. Yippee! As Jim Beletti commented, Gulf Shores is a great venue and they are sure to enjoy the area, but even more will be socializing with our great bunch of Heartlanders.

Hey Donna and Hogan - we will not be able to attend the rally at Gulf Shores. A family conflict has popped up which I can not avoid. My sister is being presented with a national collegiate award in education and the presentation is that weekend. Got a go support my family. Ya'll have a good time and sorry we will miss it. Great location for a rally.

Hey Hogan, put Ann and I down we won't be able to arrive until Friday, but would like to stay and not leave until Monday. Then we're going just a short trip over to a place called Paradise Island to camp and visit with my Brother-in-Law and his Sister for a few days.

Hogan. Hate this, but Connie's treatment schedule has been adjusted. Won't have time now to leave here, get to the Rally, then get back to Ohio for her next treatment. Sorry, but we're going to have to cancel. Hoping you'll understand.

Another new member couple coming to their first Heartland Rally. John and Pam Burkes from Irondale, Alabama will join up with us for the Rally. Good to have them and look forward to meeting them. The Blue Angels are having practice this year so as we get closer to Rally time, will gather information on which of the two days we go to watch; maybe both days. Also, will be posting on March 1st that time is here to do reservations for the Rally so here is your first pre-warning.

Hey Hogan sorry to say that we have to pull out of your rally this year. DW has a cousin that decided he wants to get married that weekend so we will not be able to make it. We were both looking forward to it since yours was only one that fell during her spring break time period.

The time has arrived to make reservations with Gulf State Park for the April 24-27th Spring Rally. So please arrange your reservation and don't worry about your site assignment. They do not do advance site assignments. They will assign you to our Group area when you arrive. The Blue Angels practice sessions are on so those arriving early can make the trek over to Pensacola Naval Air Station to watch the Blue Angels practice. I think Wednesday will be the best day so more folks will have arrived. See you soon.

Sorry to hear Ken's got problems but it does sound like he got a leg up on it by getting the angiogram. Too bad they can't fix him up with stents.

Regrettably, Glenn & Ginger Martin will not be able to attend the rally at Gulf Shores. We have been looking forward to attending but as stated in my original post we are trying to sell our farm so we can go full-time. Although we would love to attend, we have decided it makes more sense to work more diligently on the sale of the farm. We look forward to meeting up with old friends and new a bit further down the road, and wish everyone a safe trip and know that you will have a great time at Gulf Shores.

Welcome! Rallies are like potato chips, after the first one you're pretty much hooked. We are scheduled to arrive on Saturday the 19th, to unwind and relax, so look us up when you get in. Food, fellowship, and great people are in abundance at these events. The T-shirts may have been ordered already, but you might send Hogan & Donna a message, to see if they can still order or if they have some extras.

Hogan - I tried to send you a message, but it didn't go through. I have 3 questions. 1 - never got a message about ordering shirts (maybe because I told you sizes when we signed up for rally), just want to be sure you got our sizes. I originally said (1) XL and (1) Lg, if possible make that (2) Lg. If you can't change it, that's ok. Also if you have any old rally shirts in a Lg I would like to get them. 2 - my sister is going to tag along with us on this trip (she lost her husband in January), so please let me know how much $$ you need to cover ice cream social, dinner, etc. 3 - speaking of the ice cream social, would it be possible, could Donna get a sugar free vanilla? If not, let me know and I'll bring my own. Looking forward to seeing everyone. We will be there on Sunday - meeting our friends from FL again, but they will leave before the rally begins.

Hi Wyndy,

I know it appears that I dropped off the 3rd Rock; but suffice it to say, I have been more than a little busy with the Campground responsibilities in Florida, much more than I would have hoped for. It has been very demanding and stressful to boot. I have not been tuned in to the Chapter activities, but Donna and I are spending a few days in our new Landmark at Gulf State Park and will head home to Tupelo tomorrow to get ready for Rally, spend time with our Family and go to Texarkana, Arkansas for an Easter Family Get-together. We are leaving our rig in storage here at Gulf Shores and will drive back down on Easter to move to Gulf State Park for the Rally. Sorry to say, we will not have Tee-shirts for this Rally. It was just more than I had time to deal with. Gulf Shores is really looking good and the weather is so nice, I just want to stay here. I will be posting several messages over the next day or two about the Rally. What street or Road did you get placed on for the reservation? Let me know please. Look forward to seeing you and your friends and meeting your sister.

Made sure it is small enough, but it won't let me save it when I try to add a photo to my signature. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong? Thanks.

When we left yesterday morning headed south, it had just started to drizzle. The further south we went the harder it rained which made for a stressful drive. Thankfully we ran out of it about an hour north of Gulf Shores so we were able to set up in the dry. The Raber's are here, Bear Rd, site 131.

Hi Bill and Susan,

You snuck in while we were gone to eat at Doc's Seafood for supper. Donna and I arrived around 2pm and are in Site 148 on Bear Road. Several others arrived on Monday also. I think we should leave around 7am to drive to Pensacola Naval Air Station for the Blue Angels. About a 45 minute drive if I remember correctly and that should get us there early enough to walk out to flight line and get seats. Show is at 8:30am.

Will see you today. And will try to get an Agenda printed today. I think a grouptogether is planned for this evening at Bill and Jan Raber's on Possum Road. Campfire included.

For those arriving at Gulf State Park, when you arrive at Park Check In, tell them you are with the Heartland Group Rally and asked to be put on Bear Road if you are not already reserved for Bear Road. There are plenty of good sites and most are in this area. Plan to head over to Pensacola Naval Air Station on Wednesday morning for the Blue Angels Training Exhibition. We need to be wheels up at 7am so as to arrive in time to walk out to flight line and get seats in the grandstands. Weather should be great. Some chance of rain this evening, but should be beautimous tomorrow.

Linda,
You are most correct. They have revised the schedule which is really nice in many ways: Get to sleep later, and it gets the arrival after the morning rush hour at the Naval Base. So, I have posted a 9:30am departure time on the Yet to be finalized AGENDA. Should get us there in plenty of time to walk out to flight line and get good seats. Everyone must have a photo ID with them to get on the base. And no weapons in your vehicle. I will post the AGENDA in a few minutes.

Thanks Linda,

We made a good decision to stay another day here. Our kids in Tupelo are all okay and a neighbor called to tell me the tornado had come directly over our neighborhood, but he had checked our house and it was okay. If you see Tupelo damage on TV, that area is about one mile from our home.
Glad you got home safely,
Hogan

Shirley & I want to thank the AlaMissiBamaSippi Chapter for allowing us to be part of the rally this past week-end. We sure met a lot of great folks! Yes, even you dix36!!!!!!!! Thanks to Hogan and Donna for a great time, lots of great food, more laughs at story telling time and a fun "Dirty Santa" of RV products. Where is that blue cooler anyway??????

Hope everyone is ok after storms. We came thru the hit area of Clements & Athens about an hour before they hit. Has anyone heard from Donna & Hogan?? I know Tupelo was hit also. Wyndy & Pat

We were extremely fortunate as the tornadoes and storms passed just to the north of us. Many of our neighbors were not so fortunate. Many houses destroyed, and many injured in the Sardis, Mountainboro, and Smiths Institute area. First responders worked through the night freeing people trapped in their collapsed homes. Please keep these and all the others affected by the storms in your prayers. Hopefully our fellow Alabama and Mississippi Heartlanders survived a terrible night.

We spent an hour in the early morning hours in our campground's bathhouse due to tornado warnings. Nothing much more than a little wind, rain and lightning. We are down in the Montgomery, AL area. Haven't seen much evidence of weather around here. We're praying for those much less fortunate. Looks like another round coming through this afternoon.

All that we lost was a bit of sleep. Prayers for those more affected. I might nap in the basement tonight rather than waiting for the sirens. Need to be cleaning my house instead of dealing with mother nature's antics!:mad:

Hey y'all. Glad to hear everyone seems to have weathered the storms well. I just want to thank you folks for your hospitality at the rally, Janet and I really enjoyed seeing how you folks are set up and looking forward to joining in more fully on the fun once we rig-up") a special thanks to Hogan and Donna for introducing us around a bit and to Paul & Sheila and Kim & Dottie for walking us through your rigs and giving us some great pointers for down the road. Cheers.

John & Janet

To everyone that was at the Gulf Shores rally, my son, David, received his card today. He was greatly surprised and pleased with all the messages and signatures! His responses was..."WOW, there were a lot of people at the rally!"
Thank you again, everyone, for signing the card!

Thanks, Linda! We are very proud of him! I could not ask for a better son, daughter or son-in-love! We are proud of them all....especially the two granddaughters!
