Hi Dave. Is that a mistake on the "Pets Ok? No" line? That would definitely make this a no-go for us.

Gus - pets are allowed at this park. We camp there regularly and 90% of the campers have pets soooo come on down (as Bob Barker would say).

Yes that was a mistake on my part, keying error. It would be a serious problem to schedule a rally in a park that did not welcome pets, no one would come.

Perfect timing, we'll be leaving Florida next year on 4/17 and were going to stay in Pigeon Forge for two weeks after that. Now we'll just switch to Sevierville! How soon can we make reservations?

Thank all of you who are interested in the Regional Rally. I will verify exactly what you need to do and say to get the rally rate on Monday.
I think we have plenty of time before the rally. I will post all of the additional information Monday.

Thanks,

I just spoke with the park manager at River Plantation and asked about making a reservation this early. There is no problem we are all set up you just have to tell them that you are with the Heartland Owners Club.
If by some chance you have to cancel you have 72 hours before you are schedule to arrive to cancel without any penalties.

Hey all,

Here is a good news update for the 2016 Southeast Region Rally.

RULES:
There is only one Cheap Heat System to be awarded.
You must register with the campground and on the forum, by 5:00 PM, September 1, 2015 in order to be included in the drawing.
The Cheap Heat System must be installed on your coach, i.e. the prize cannot be reassigned, traded, or sold to anyone else. If the winner does not meet the eligibility requirements, another name will be drawn until an eligible winner is named.

Would really like to make that reservation but it seems they are way short on help as I either get a busy signal on their direct number or sit on hold on the toll free.
Any suggestions??

Well we're in.
After 2 days of attempting to make contact, I finally reached a very accommodating person.
We'll be arriving on 4/19 and staying 7 days in our Bighorn.

John & Marina,

Yes there are plenty of sites available for the Region Rally. Now is a good time to register for the rally because everyone who registers by September 1, 2015 will be entered for a drawing for a Cheap Heat system to be install on their rig.

A note to everyone else who is a Heartland Owners Club member I encourage you to call the campground and register for the rally. That way you too will be entered for the drawing for the Cheap Heat system, and even if you do not win you will be at the rally having a good time.

The rally attendance is growing at a rate so fast I cannot log everyone as fast as I use to, (maybe I am getting old???) anyway what I mean to say the attendance for this rally is shaping up to make this rally a BIG one. We still have al ot of sites left. We may have to expand the rally a little bit.

The latest members to register are:

Walter & Linda West

Dick & Fran Bernard

Ron & Ann Parrish

It will be great to see all of you again.

Hi, Everyone,

If you haven’t already signed up, the 2016 Southeast Region Rally (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/52025-EVENT-Heartland-Regional-Rally-TN-Sevierville-4-21-2016-to-4-24-2016/page2?p=418713#post418713) will be held at River Plantation in Sevierville, TN from April 21 to 24, 2016. We have spaces for up to 100 rigs, so we hope you will come.

The agenda will be in draft mode by November 2015, but for now I can share some exciting news.
As you know we are fortunate to be able to offer some exceptional prizes thanks to the generosity of Butch and Karen Burson, owners of RVs For Less, Knoxville, TN.

You have missed the opportunity to be eligible for the drawing for the totally free CheapHeat™ System as you had to be registered for the SE Region Rally prior to 5:00pm on September 1, 2015.

HOWEVER, the next prize for early registration is a totally free Joy Rider Shock System plus free installation. The value of this prize is $900 (parts and labor).
This is from the Joy Rider website. http://www.rvimprovementsystems.com/joy_rider.html
“What does Joy Rider do? Joy Rider is a high performance, RV trailer, Ride Control System. New RV trailers are not equipped with a Ride Control System like other types of highway vehicles. How would you benefit by adding the Joy Rider, Ride Control System to your RV? Controlling vehicle leaf spring, compression and rebound, movement is a cardinal objective of ride control engineers. The most common control method used on highway vehicles is hydraulic shock absorbers. Until Joy Rider, RV suspensions lacked sufficient room to install shock absorbers in an effective operating position. Excessive, uncontrolled suspension movement fatigues leaf springs and quickly wears out suspension components. Hopping tires and bouncing springs throw interior contents repeatedly, causing damage from rubbing, colliding, drawers slamming open and furniture walking into nearby walls. Over time the entire unit and its contents will have prematurely aged and require more and more maintenance. Joy Rider’s control of the trailer’s tires improves braking traction, especially in a panic stop. Rear axle roll-up is reduced so all four tires grip the road surface.”
Joy Rider has also been featured in an article in Trailer Life.
IMPORTANT: This prize will be awarded based on a drawing. To be eligible for this drawing you must REGISTER FOR THE RALLY PRIOR TO 5:00PM on DECEMBER 31, 2015. You must register both for your camping at the campground and register with me by posting on the Forum and/or sending me a PM. You must also attend the rally. The drawing will take place at the rally.
Good luck to everyone and if you have any questions, please email me at dyocum881@yahoo.com

We have the Joy Rider Shock system installed on our Key Largo and I can say it have made a difference in the ride of the coach. When we got our new coach in April 2014, it rode really rough with things, and cushions, moving all around in the coach. The Joy Rider has taken some of the rough bumps out of our "wonderful" roads systems with less movement within the camper.

davebennington

Mike and Justina,

The reason there is no fee for non club member is because in order to attend a region rally you MUST be a current Heartland Owners Club member at rally time to attend.

Yes we'll miss making new friends and seeing others but immediate family will always supersede...

Right now we do not have a cut off. I have 100 sites reserved for the rally once they are gone I guess that will be the cutoff. I would suggest keeping checking on the count of attendees to see what is available.

The Heartland Gives Back project will be helping a local orphanage called the Smoky Mountain Children's Home (http://www.carecampus.org/). The Home was originally started in Cleveland Tennessee in 1920 before moving to the present location in Sevierville in 1949. These at-risk youth, mostly due to situations not of their doing, range in age from 13 to 18 years. The Home needs all kind of household items from paper products to clothing. Please review the attached list and lets help this group as they provide hope and a future to these young people.

davebennington
01-24-2016, 10:21 PM
Here is a brief glance of what we have planned for the Pre-Rally fun time.

Pre-Rally
On Wednesday there is a golf outing for anyone who would like to participate. For the rest of the attendees we will have a quilt intro class here is a class description. If you are interested in attending this informal class I will need a head count so send me an E-mail that you are interested in the class or golf.

QUILT MAGIC CRAFT CLASS
Join in to have some creative fun! Quilt Magic uses a combination of paint-by-number and paper doll skills. By simply cutting easy shapes from the provided fabric kit and pressing them into the pre-cut foam board (also provided), you'll create a small wall hanging or trivet in an attractive design. No previous experience or sewing skill are involved. A short supply list of common household tools will be given at a later date. Gather with your fellow Heartlanders for a stress-free class--just bring your enthusiasm to try something new. You'll be surprised at your creativity--everyone can do it! The supplies for this class will be provided for you, This is why I need to know if you are going to attend.

Now if neither of these are of interest to you, you are welcome to explore the area on your own there are many interesting things to see and do.

I guess I had a little senior moment I forgot to let you know my E-mail address: dyocum881@yahoo.com, Sorry.

Saturday night is a special night as we are offering a Pigeon Forge dinner show to rally attendees. Billed as Feudin’ Feastin’ Family Fun we will be attending The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show™! Picture West Side Story set in the mountains, with clogs instead of wing tips and twangy bluegrass music instead of Leonard Bernstein. Just remember, this is not a historical production, so get ready for cheesy jokes and silly dance numbers. If you like a side dish of fake dance-fightin’ with your supper — and who doesn’t — you will definitely want to join us.
Dinner is a Full Southern Homestyle Feast and includes:


Feudin' Fried Chick'n
Open Pit Pulled-to-Pieces Pork Barbeque
Southern Style Creamy Soup
Smashed Mashed Taters
Buttery Corn on the Cob

Ma's Hot Homemade Bread
No Tellin' What's In It Coleslaw
Granny's Famous Specialty Dessert


Speaking of dinner, make sure you get there early, at least 45 minutes or so – as the dinner service ends at 5:00pm when the show begins!

The dinner theater is located between lights 0 and 1 on the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge, next door to the Titanic Museum.

Here’s the good news. The regular price for this show is $54.95 per person, BUT we are very pleased to be able to offer this show to you for the low, low price of $25.00 per person, thanks to the generosity of Heartland RVs.

Tickets do need to be paid for and purchased in advance. Send your checks to me, David Yocum, PO Box 571, Placida FL 33946. The checks must be in my hands absolutely no later than April 1, 2016. We will not be able to obtain additional tickets after this date, so please don’t ask.

Several of you have asked about the craft Class, as far as the date and time. First things first the class will be presented by quilter extraordinaire Chris Brotemarkle. Chris has a great deal of experience in quilting, we are so lucky to have her give up her time for us.

The craft class is a Pre-Rally event and will be on Wednesday morning at 10 AM, however if there is enough interest we plan to do another session in the afternoon,

Dave gave you a hint of the plan for the Wednesday Pre-Rally dinner extravaganza. Hopefully my enthusiasm will catch on and this will be a feast to remember!


THE FIRST (and maybe last) Southeast Region Pre-rally POTLUCK and SMOKE-OFF WEDNESDAY evening APRIL 20.

I came up with the idea of a Smoke-Off for one of the dinners at Sevierville and Dave thought it was a good idea (especially if I volunteered to take charge of it)!

I realize not everyone owns a smoker let alone travels with a smoker in their rig. That's not a problem as I'm sure that those "non smokers" will bring a wonderful contribution to the meal as they always do.

What I'm hoping is that those who do like to cook with a smoker will share the outcome of their best efforts. It doesn't matter if you crank up the smoker at the rally or taunt your neighbors at home with the delectable aroma then bring it to the rally!

I will bring a meat slicer along if your favorite offering is better served sliced. (Any other required items like meat, wood chips and smoker will NOT be provided)

So far the only known contributors will be Randy Allen, Jim Beletti and myself . Those who attended the Kentucky and Tennessee rallies in October know what Jim and I can serve up! We're not worried about duplications because small differences in technique can make big differences in the outcome. C'mon and show us how you do it!
42771

We would like for all those willing to show off their smokey dining delights to send your name and what you are planning to bring (also, let us know of any items that we hadn't thought of and are able to provide) to: RALLYSMOKEOFF@YAHOO.COM

Remember this is a potluck dinner! If you aren't bringing something from your smoker you are still invited to bring a side dish or dessert to share with all to enjoy.

Hi all,

Attached is an update from RV for Less about what specials that will be available from Mor/ryde Ind.


Good Friday Heartland Owners;
We hope that this newest email finds you doing well and are enjoying this weird winter so far. I know there weather has been crazy here in Knoxville and continues to be unpredictable again this week. There was some good news this week in the fact that Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, meaning that we will not have the six extra weeks of winter! So what this means is that we should be excited that we will be getting our units ready a little bit earlier than normal! YAY!
What this means is that the weather will be better and warmer than what we have experienced in the past. So if you are needing some work done to your camper or just wanting to add some new things give us a call and schedule your work before or after the rally in April. Come and enjoy a couple more days in the beautiful Smokey Mountains and let us service your camper, no job is to big or small, for our talented technicians.
This week we are revealing the discounts for MORryde for those of you in attendance at the rally April 21-24, 2016 at River Plantation RV Park. Gary Wheeler of MORryde will be doing a seminar on Friday, April 22 at 9:00 am to discuss their extensive inventory available to each of you. Make sure you sign up and take advantage of Gary’s vast knowledge of the RV industry. Below you will find a list of MORryde’s offers:


15% off Entry door step with free shipping

http://www.morryde.com/products/154-entry-step?return=%2Fproduct-category%2F8-other-products


15% off Sweet Mattress Deck Slide with free shipping

http://www.morryde.com/products/134-sweet-mattress-deck-slide?return=%2Fproduct-category%2F8-other-products


15% off The Chair Buddy with free shipping

http://www.morryde.com/products/123-the-chair-buddy?return=%2Fproduct-category%2F8-other-products
The above list is just a couple of the products that MORryde offers. Make sure to attend the seminar to find out more about this great company. There may be some more products offered later on so keep your eyes out for that.
Only eleven weeks left until the Heartland Rally! Are you registered yet? Remember these and the future discounts will only be available to those in attendance.
We hope to see you there!!

This is our first rally ever and our second trip in our new bighorn. Our first trip was a month long trip from Kansas to Texas to home in Alabama. Looking forward to it.
