Congrats Robert on getting this organized. Unfortunately Kim has a standing annual "girls" weekend at the cottage that weekend. I would certainly like to attend so will give some thought to going it alone.

Thanks Alan.

Would like to see you there, even without your lovely wife Kim. This camping location is only about 2.5 hours from Ottawa, so it is an easy trek. We have also pick these dates to make sure we did not conflict with the Lake George NY rally the following week-end.

This rally is scheduled to start on September 8th (see details in Post #1). The rally takes place the weekend before the NY Chapter Rally for which many members are already registered or plan to attend. The NY Rally is in Lake George which is only about a 4 hour drive from Montreal.

I would personally like to invite all members (Canadian & American) to join us in Montreal. We have a “Smoked Meat & Greet” in the works and based on our recent survey, Parc Safari laid a big “Ostrich Egg”. So as good Canadiens, we have set up a tour of the Bell Centre (Montreal Canadiens home) and are extending this invitation to all hockey fans including those of the Senators, Jets, Oilers, Flames, Canucks and last but not least Leafs!

We hope you can join us and help us make our Regional Rally in Montreal a success!

Heartland Regional rallies are substantially subsidized by Heartland and as such, only club members can participate in them.

The price structure for joining the club has changed on Feb. 01, 2016. The new rates are outlined at the following link: https://heartlandowners.org/club/membership-dues/

Being part of the club entitles you to participate in any of the rallies held in Canada or the US.

Actually, the membership structure was changed on Feb. 01, 2016 and the club no longer accepts applications for Introductory Memberships.

Sounds like great fun guys! Let's see how many Ontario rigs we can get into this event!

I think most of us are home now from our winter vacations, so let's get on the website and get signed up for this event.

Alice and myself are looking forward to seeing all of you!

Even a Toronto Maple Leaf's fan like myself, looks forward to seeing the Bell center in Montréal.

Called today and booked my site for arrival Sept 8 and departure Sept 13. Yes, staying an extra couple of days to allow Kim to get home from her "girls at the cottage" weekend in Georgian Bay, so she can guide me as I back into the driveway. For those who have seen where the Kimberlodge sits you know why :)

We have just concluded our Canada-West Rally in Jasper, Alberta. Our final attendance showed 10 rigs, however, we had a few last minute cancellations. We had a great group with 4 first time rally attendees, three of them having only joined the owners club recently. All in all, it was a very successful rally.

Our Canada-East rally in September is coming up quickly. We would like to see 20 plus rigs join us for this event. Check out our rally agenda! If your plans include attending the NY Chapter rally September 16 -18, consider a visit to Montreal, Canada September 8 – 11. You will not be disappointed!
Interested? Send me an email to secure your reservation.

Let's welcome Ross White to the rally! He will be on his way to Nova Scotia and has decided to join us.

We have also updated some details regarding the Sunday breakfast.

Ross White, the most recent addition to our list of attendees, has suggested Exporail (Canadian Railway Museum), Canada’s largest and best railway museum in St. Constant QC, just off Route 20, south of Montreal, as a point of interest to visit during your free time.

The location is approximately 45 kilometers (35 minutes) from the campground. It looks like an interesting place to visit. Here is the link: http://www.exporail.org/en/

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the reminder. We were away for a couple of weeks and are still in catch-up mode.

I have sent an email to the attendees requesting that information. When received, it will be updated in Post #1 of this thread.

I am going to guess that no Tee times have been booked for golf, correct? If so I can do that. Those interested in golfing Saturday afternoon, please let me know here.

Thanks

There were only two members who expressed interest in golf. It was you and Mike Tinklin. We have not booked anything.

Robert Letourneau had suggested one of these two golf courses:



Club de Golf La Madeleine ( http://www.golflamadeleine.qc.ca/ )
Club de Golf La Seigneurie ( http://www.golflaseigneurie.ca/ ) This one is a little closer to the campground and is a more challenging course, a bit like Scottish links courses.
