Hi fellow members,

We are experiencing a “hint” of spring which is appropriate as our Canada-West Rally in “Hinton, Alberta” is just under three months away. For fellow Canadians, it is going to be a dry spring with no team to cheer on to the Stanley Cup. So, the next best thing is to get out the RV and plan to attend your first or another great Heartland Owners Club rallies. You will not be disappointed!
We currently have 10 members registered for the event and would certainly like to see this number grow. If you were thinking of coming but just haven’t gotten around to it yet, book now and let us know you are coming so we can add you to the attendee list. This will also help us get a better sense of numbers to begin finalizing arrangements.
Join us in making our first Canadian Region Rally a resounding success!

Hi Carole,

The registration instructions are included in post #1 of this thread.

You should know, however, that while non-club members can attend chapter rallies at a nominal cost of $20/rig, Regional rallies are substantially subsidized by Heartland and as such, only club members can participate in them.

You can join the club using this link: https://heartlandowners.org/vbMemberManager.php

Benefits for joining the club can be found at this link: https://heartlandowners.org/club/membership-benefits/

The cost for joining the club is minimal considering the benefits, especially being able to attend any of Heartland Owners club rallies for free.

Hopefully, we can meet you at the Canada West regional rally in Hinton/Jasper.

Regards, Bob

Hi everyone,

There is still time to sign up for the Canada-West Region Rally in Jasper, Alberta June 16th – 19th. We currently have 12 registered and are reaching out to you to consider joining us if your schedule permits. We are looking for at least 3 more attendees to reach a threshold of 15 by June 1st. Please reach out to your fellow members and encourage them to attend.

As of May 22nd, we have the following:

• 10 confirmed for the Early Arrivals Dinner @ Jasper Brewing Company

• 11 confirmed for the Jasper SkyTram.

For this event, we need a minimum of 15 individuals to qualify for the discounted rate ($31.96). The regular rate is $39.95. Both are plus 5% GST.
And remember, the HOC is subsidizing this event by $10/person.

• 3 (maybe 4) are interested in Golf. The Hinton Golf & Country Club spectacular course lies in the heavily forested foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Its fairways meander over rolling hills and through tall spruce trees. The modest length of the forward tees at 5082 yards accommodates the recreational player while stretching up to 6500 yards at the back tees provides even the best players with a challenging, scenic round of golf. The club was formed in 1962, opening with nine holes, and expanding to eighteen holes in 1993.

The course is located 4 km (2 miles from the Campground)

GREEN FEES (GST is not included)

Adult - 9 holes $36.19
Adult - 18 holes $57.14
Senior- 65+ - 18 holes $52.38

If you have registered but have not provided your interest in dinner/SkyTram/golf. Please let us know as soon as possible.

For those registering now, please send us an email to confirm and to indicate your interest in the above.

Christine & I are in Edmonton having visited with Christine's relative the last couple of days.

We’ll be heading to Hinton tomorrow morning. We’ll probably be arriving around noon. We’ll be busy making the final arrangements with our suppliers in the afternoon. Then we will be heading to the early arrivals dinner. I believe we have five couples who will be attending. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Hi everyone!

We have just completed our first Canada Region rally in Hinton/ Jasper AB :D. What a beautiful part of Canada this is.

Arrived in Ottawa safe and sound yesterday afternoon.

We would like to thank everyone who attended our first Canada-West Heartland Owners Club rally! It was a sincere pleasure meeting all of you and we hope you enjoyed yourselves. Although the weather was not perfect, it certainly did not stop us from enjoying the campground and the local attractions especially the SkyTram. It was a picture-perfect day with incredible views!

Our thanks to all the cooks who provided such delicious munchies at our Campetizer Night and the Potluck!

Here are some photos taken by us during the rally. Enjoy!

Yes, Thank you Bob and Christine for planning this Rally. Lee-Ann and I enjoyed being there and meeting new friends. We are looking forward to the next Rally, especially now that our fridge is repaired. Very happy we could make it to the Rally especially since the province of S has had thunderstorm go through and start 20 plus fires today. Malcolm
