AZ Chapter Inaugural Rally:

Quail Ridge RV Resort is located off Hwy 82 & Hwy 90. It is 18 miles from Tombstone, 8 miles from Kartchner Caverns, 10 miles from Fairbank Ghost Town on the San Pedro River, 12 miles from Sierra Vista and Ft. Huachuca.
The roads are all paved and the sites are all gravel pull through.
Book through Linda and she will take your credit card number BUT not run any charges on it until she sees the Whites of your Eyes. "Per her comment"

We have the Club House with full kitchen and BBQ reserved for our use as follows: Thur-6-10pm, Fri-7-9pm, Sat-7-10pm, Sun-7-10AM.

PotLuck: Thursday Oct 16th, the chapter will provide Veggie Lasagna and grilled chicken. Please post what you will bring for the pot luck so we won't have an overload on one item, also bring your beverage of choice.

Friday Oct 17th: Bring a gift valued between $10-15. We will have a Steal a Gift night. Each person or Rig that brings a gift will receive a ticket. Two people in one rig may bring one gift or two, they will receive a gift ticket for each gift they bring. We will pull a ticket for the first gift and that person will select from the Table of Gifts. The next ticket pulled, may select from the table or take the first persons gift, at which time that person will again select from the table. This will continue until the last person is drawn, in which case they have an option of any gift already selected or the final table gift. So you have to be honest and not hide your gift...everyone must be able to see all gifts during the "Steal". Bring your own beverage of choice, it will be a fun evening.

Sat: Oct 18th: Raffle and door prizes & 50/50 drawing.

Sun: Oct 19th: I will be cooking breakfast burritos before we all head back home.

Activities: Tombstone Helldorado Days will be going on during our Rally. The largest Old West gun fight in the State. Parades, shoot outs in the street, trolley rides, stagecoach rides and even an evening GHOST Ride via the Trolley.

Kartchner Caverns has daily tours and this is a super tour under ground. For reservations call 520 586 2283.

If enough interest, we will have a group lunch in Sierra Vista on Saturday. Tombstone will not accept large groups during Helldorado Days.

Stay tuned: More to come later.

Let me know when you book your reservation with Linda.

Since this is our Inaugural Rally, I was thinking we should do something special.....ie The Two Crazy Ladies that make the Heartland Name tags and hangers can make us a special inaugural hanger... The cost of these hangers would be $3.50 each.
Let's bat this around and see what everyone would like to do.... My initial idea:
Rally 2014
Arizona Inaugural
This would be a two line hanger as a one line hanger is limited to 15 spaces, but a little larger print.....
Is this something that would interest you? This would be a one time printing and just for those who attended the Rally.
Since our Chapter fund isn't sufficient enough to cover the cost for now, would you be willing to purchase this item at the Rally?
This is just another idea and not to say we have to do it.....just putting it out there for food for thought....

Hello to everyone! We are new to the RV lifestyle. Just bought our rig, waiting delivery this month. We plan to follow the drag boat racing circuit, and in October there is a race in Lake Havasu City and Phoenix with two weeks in between. I saw this Rally online and I think it would be perfect for my husband and I and the dogs to attend! It will be our first! How do I sign up? We want to come and see and meet and greet! Do I call the RV camp? I'm a greenhorn so point the way!

We are unable to reserve a table in Tombstone for a Saturday lunch due to the Helldorado days. I will book something in Sierra Vista for that Saturday and post it on the Rally listing.

Had a nice lunch in Tombstone on Sunday after our Meet-n-Greet with Jeff and Ruth. After our lunch walking around, someone shot a 45 long colt "Blank" and unfortunately Dakota, my service dog about lost it.
It took her about 10 minutes or so to stop shaking. So just a warning if you take your dogs into Tombstone, you never know when gun fire will be active in the streets. A strong leash and gentle heart is required if they
are not use to gun fire.

I just updated the pot luck dinner. The chapter will host Veggie Lasagna and grilled chicken. Start posting what compliment you will bring to the pot luck. Post you items under this thread so everyone will know.
We have some members who don't eat meat, some who don't eat red meat, so I went to two items, in hope of satisfying everyone. So if your dish has a meat item within, Please Please let everyone know!!!
I would hate to have members go into anaphylactic shock and require CPR on our Inaugural Rally....Or any Rally!!!!!!

Remember I will also be making breakfast burritos on Sunday morning before our departure and looking for an appetizer "snack" for our Steal a Gift Game Night....I am thinking about Jalapeno poppers since we have an oven to use in the club house. Your ideas are most welcome!

Can't wait to see everyone there and to meet our new members as well.

Feel free to bring any drink of choice as the cub house allows alcoholic beverages as well. There is also a nice freezer and refrigerator in the clubhouse in which you may store items during our Rally.

Oct is getting closer.....any last minute snow birds that would like to join us, let me know as I can expand the block of sites required to accommodate our Rally needs.

Group Lunch....If you are interested in having a group lunch on either Friday or Saturday, let me know. While we cannot book into Tombstone for a luncheon due to Helldorado days, Sierra Vista is only 10 miles the RV Resort and has a number of great places to eat. If you have any interest, post your desire. Once the size of the group is determined, I will make arrangements for whatever day will be available to our group. There are a number of activities going on during our Rally and many places of interest to visit, you can be as busy as you want or just lay back and enjoy, so don't feel pressured. This is just one more element being offered, should the interest be there. Can't wait to see everyone!

On Sept 1, 2014, I will close down the name list for our Oct Rally. I am doing this as I am having something made for each participant and need time to have this completed. These items will be made for each Heartland Member who attends our Rally. This will be a one time order and the chapter will not order any extras. If we have late bookings, we will obviously allow everyone to attend, but they may or may not receive the special gift, depending on how late they booked. I will send out an email to each participant to reconfirm your RSVP prior to the Sept 1 cut off. Our Rally is getting closer!!! Can't wait to meet all the new faces in our Chapter and out of state guests. So far we have guests from Colorado and Texas on our RSVP list.

With a month left of our summer, may everyone enjoy your travels and remain safe!

See you in Oct....

Thought this would be the best place to post something of interest regarding Arizona even if it's not about the rally. Rick and I are in the White Mountains for a heat respite this weekend and we just got snow at the 260/sunrise turnoff!! Driving through there after a visit to Greer and it dropped around an inch for about 200 yards at 2:15 this afternoon. It was fun!

Beat of luck to all of my further south and further east arizona friends. This storm looks like it's tracking right over you. Hopefully the rv park remains good for our rally. Stay safe

Well, just got home from a very wet last weekend in the white mountains (we missed you bob and Marion but it was really wet) pulled the rig home so we can now get ready for our very first HOC rally and the inaugural arizona rally. Looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing some semi new friends we met at the meet and greet. Gotta go now and make a shopping list for icecream!

For the 9 of us that are going to be at the rally early- I will be hosting a Mexican food dinner on Wednesday night. This is NOT a potluck , everything will be provided except your beverage of choice. Please indulge me.... I have fewer and fewer people to cook for as my family gets older and I just love doing it. There will be beef, chicken and vegi options. let's get ready to paaarty!!

We don't have a portable fire ring but we do have a propane "campfire in a can" that we always have with us just in case we are in an area without fire rings or an area that does not allow wood burning. We also have a couple group games.... ladder toss is one.
The Wednesday evening dinner sounds wonderful Ann, thank you for doing that:)
We just got back from the Regional Rally in Amana, Iowa....what a great time...we're "resting up" for the Arizona "wing-ding":D
See everyone soon, safe travels to all!

I had a wonderful time at my FIRST Rally! Thank you all for such fun! I thought I had better put in a word of thanks to those who stopped to see if they could be of assistance... I had Good Sam Roadside Assistance on their way... Someone at the Stop Sign had told me that I had a balloon on the inside of my rear passenger trailer tire... Check out the picture of the tire in the bed of the truck..... When I got home (I drove slow) I found that after another 160 miles my front drivers side trailer tire was ready to blow as well... I now know why they are called BLOWMAX tires!! Only about 5000 on this set of tires on my 2013 Sundance... Check out this picture as well... Anyone know of good replacement tire? Thanks again for a wonderful FIRST Rally and thanks again for checking on me on the side of the road! Nice to have concerned friends!

Our first rally was a 10!!!! Met so many fabulous people, some incredible kids and well mannered dogs. We are now even more excited for quarztcite and seeing everyone again. Thank you to everyone for everything you all did to making this so awesome. To Jeanne for her recipes, to Terry and June for their tunes, to Greg for his wit, to Michelle for her awesome girls, to Monica for her never ending help and to everyone for just being there and making it as good as I could have dreamt. Garry was incredible and worked way too hard. We'll make sure we're even better organized for the next one so he can have some time off. Now that we all have one under our belts the next one should be a hoot. Safe travels to those who haven't left yet. See you all soon!!

Hello, to the group!!!

The Inaugural Az. Chapter Rally was also our first Rally, and it far surpassed our expectations. Not only did we meet some fantastic people, the rally fee was a bargain for the vast amount of knowledge that I gained from our knowledgeable chapter members. If for nothing else if anyone just wants to spend the weekend with like minded soles who share the common bond of owning a Heartland RV, you cannot believe the comradre of this group, we have never felt so welcome to a new group in such a short time. We cannot wait until the next one in Quartzite!!

We've been to two HOC Rallies thus far, and Quartzsite will be our third!

We met Garry at our first rally, as well as Monica and Don (the Colorado HOC leaders), and countless other members (like Terry & June), and I can't say enough about them!

What a bunch of great people and a fun time!

Anyone who hasn't yet attended an HOC rally or campout needs to do so right away!

We'll see you all at Quartzsite in January, 2015!

A big thank you to all who attended our Inaugural Rally.....You are the one's that made it special and as great as it turned out. In my opinion this was one of the best Rally's I have attended.
Thanks to all who helped out, cleaned up and brought all those super snacks.
Also this was the first Rally I have attended with Children and WOW what a special Treat.....I hope they will be at all our Rally's.
To our out of State guests, thank you for attending and we all wish you safe travels.
See you in Quartzsite in Jan 2015. Our RSVP has exceeded all expectations and working on clearing those with pending confirmations.

I feel blessed to have such close Heartland friends in the Arizona Chapter and the Heartland Owners Club everywhere.

To the two AZ members, whom I will not mention their names, who had tire blow outs after the Quailridge Rally....I trust it all worked out and no damage was done to the one siting on the RV or the other on the truck. I feel bad you had these problems and wish you all well.
Safe travels in the future.

Garry,

Do please share their experiences so we as a chapter may learn from their misfortune, also putting it out for the chapter, I do carry an onboard air compressor with a 50' hose, and if anyone need to check their tire before hitting the road. I'm offering up my air compressor for use to all chapter members, (it may need cold beer) to work effectively...Lol

[One rig had a blow out on his blowmax tires, tread partially separated from the tire. He had Good Sam service and they changed tires, leaving him without a spare. About 20 miles from the Phoenix area another Blowmax decided to do the same thing. He limped home and putting a new set of Goodrich Tires on this week. No damage to the RV. Several AZ members offered assistance but he was okay. The second person had a blow on on his truck, not sure of the details, but apparently no damage to the truck or RV. ]
