We are pleased to announce that the Heartland Owners North Texas Chapter will have another rally in Canton TX. The rally will be held at the Mill Creek Ranch Resort, a 10-10-10 Good Sam rated park that has also received high honors from Woodalls and the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO).

We have 30 sites reserved for our rally. If the rally sites are not reserved by August 9, 2016, the sites will be released back to the resort. After August 9, 2016, reservations can still be made, but the site may not be close to the Rally group.

Please call the park to make reservations and post on this thread or send me a PM with your dates.

Come join us!

We will have a White Elephant Exchange. Please bring an item you don't want in a paper bag - no name. We will number them.

ExploreUSA will host a lunch at their Canton location on Sept 10, 2016 starting at 11:30 am. They will grill and have new coaches for us browse through. Of course, if you are in the market, they will work a deal!

Not sure if I want to go to a rally/camp out in Canton...lol. Last time we did it ended up being a $70k trip replacing an engine and then buying a new truck. Lol we will try but not sure if we can make it due to football schedule.

nander,

I want to come to a North Texas Rally, but I was thinking more like next year. September 10th is an away game for my Red Raiders and if I tell Helen it's in Canton... I know she'll want to go!!!

I noticed that Trade Days is on the First Monday of the month... Will there still be vendors & booths the Rally weekend that she can drag me around shopping???

Hi Mike,
We would love to have you in Canton! We cannot have a rally on First Monday as there are no discounts. I'm not sure if there would be as many vendors as first Monday. Some do stay the season. The park would know more than I do! [emoji3]

There normally aren't any booths open, but there are several quasi-permanent vendors around the periphery of the fair grounds that are always open plus a couple of interesting stores (we like the Fiestaware store that carries a lot of seconds.

That's great... Helen reclaimed her Fiestaware from my daughter that just got married and she probably needs a few pieces to round out the set!!!

Nancy and Dave, we'll be up north and unable to attend this one but if you or anyone has need of our 4 seat, lifted gas golf cart, I can leave it on the trailer and someone could pick it up for the rally if they want. Would be about an hour trip to p/u. Let me know if you want to make arrangements. Jacksonville isn't too far if you want it. Have a great rally and we'll see you at the next.

Hi cndcrutcher,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and to the family. We have a great bunch of folks here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge when needed.

Be sure and check out our Heartland Owners Club (//heartlandowners.org/content.php/128-heartland-owners-club-portal). Join us at a rally when you can and meet lots of the great folks here and make friends for a lifetime.

A rally is a place to meet other Heartlanders, play games and EAT FOOD. Also lots of things get planned and the #1 post will usually be updated to let you know what is happening.

Enjoy the forum and your new unit.

There are lots of strange goings on at the rallies. Our ritual is a lot like the Masons. The newest attendee has to wait on the rest of the group. For your 1st rally, it's good to bring a bottle of Fireball to share with everyone................

But on a serious note, It starts officially with some sort of meet and greet. (Maybe Ice cream, donuts, etc..) Just a fun time getting to know fellow Heartlanders and sharing their experiences on the road. Lots of good tech info and friendship. Always food on everyone's mind. Attend one and you'll get hooked on the comradery and find yourself attending more just to meet friends you'll make who share your passion for the RV lifestyle. I Guarantee you'll be made to feel at ease and enjoy yourself at your 1st rally. Just fun people getting together. You just need to bring yourselves to the rally. Normally a Pot Luck dinner with the main course provided. Everyone just brings a side dish to these events. You could sum up a rally with casual, laid back and friendly. Come see for yourselves and you'll never look back. These events are where you can start putting faces to the names of people you meet here.
Best part of owning a Heartland RV is you are eligible to join the HOC. Don't miss the opportunity.
Later and have a great day.

Hello cndcrutcher!
Fun and food goes on a rally. Baker summed it up nicely. Go to the first post, get the info and make your reservation. Be sure to tell them you are with the Heartland Owners Club. That's another thing, you don't have to, but should join the Owners Club. If you are not a member of the club, you will have to pay $20. This helps cover our costs for paper items, etc. We have a meet & greet, usually Friday evening. Saturday is the potluck. Everyone brings a dish. We play games - mexican train, lcr, etc. If you need additional info, please feel free to contact me.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

we are interested in the concealed carry class but are wondering if it would be valid in Oklahoma?

See question #11 on this page (http://dps.texas.gov/rsd/chl/faqs/). Texas and Oklahoma have reciprocity on licenses. But it does occur to me that Oklahoma might prefer that their residents have OK licenses. So you might check OK laws.

Hey Jay, where is the local gun range near Canton? I know there is one in Kerrville that we have been to a couple of times, but didn't know there was one in Canton.

On edit: Never mind. I found one that really looks good in Wills Point, TX within 10 or 12 miles. It is Wiley's Gun Shop, covered 100 yard rifle range and 25 yard pistol range. Had good write ups. The shop is supposed to have a really good inventory, good prices and friendly people. One review I read said the range cost was 10 bucks for the first gun and 5 for each gun thereafter.

I think I see a road trip for some of us already licensed folks who want to do some one stop shooting and shopping. I suspect Dave will want to try his long guns out.

Jay, Unless it has changed you might point out that if you qualify with a revolver, only revolvers are covered by your license, but if you qualify with an automatic, then both automatics and revolvers are covered by your license. This may have changed since I last qualified, but I haven't seen anything that says it has.

jayc

Mike, the law has indeed changed and you may qualify with either a revolver or semi auto and carry what you want.

I spent some time trying to see if we could make it, but Tony has a football game Friday. Looked into the cabin rentals, OUCH! may just have to miss you guys. We'll have to play it by ear, if we could come for the day or something.

But if anyone is traveling I-20 from West Texas, towards DFW, please stop and say hi, we're between Cisco and Eastland. MM337. PM me!

No problem, Erika! We understand some people have to work! ;):rolleyes:

ExploreUSA in Canton will host a lunch at their Canton location on Sept 10 (Saturday) beginning at 11:30am. They will grill some goodies for our lunch and have new coaches available for us to browse. Of course, if you are in the market, they will be ready to deal!

Don't forget our White Elephant exchange. Bring a white elephant in a bag - no name. We will exchange on Saturday evening after the potluck.

Info on the License To Carry Class taught by our own Dave Tyler will be on Thursday, Sept 8. More info in post #38.

Nancy,
I know we don't need another "seminar" on the disc brakes and tires but I think Jay Coffman is coming and he and I can share our experiences and even pull a wheel off and let folks get an up close and personal look at the system installed on our coaches and talk about how to get one done on your rig. Once I know my site and Jay's, he and I will put out that info and let you know where they can come to talk and see. I'm also trying to rig up an air gauge test station so let folks bring their air gauges by to see if they are accurate or at least what their actual reading is. I just returned from 3,700 miles of high country travel in Colorado and Arizona and believe me, I was glad I had my disc brakes many times.

See everyone in Canton.

Ok. Before you call take a look at your attendee list and the sites' location on the web site's park map. You can expand the map, then click on the bath house or office (any of the circles) and it will zoom in so you can read the numbers. The sites right now are all on the same side of the lake but all over.

I called Mill Creek and now have everyone's site number. It has been added to the attendee list in the first post. We are all together. We take up most of the first three rows.

Thanks Dave and Nancy for another great rally. We got to see a lot of our friends and met some new ones. We had some extras like getting to shoot and visiting ExploreUSA for lunch. The bonus was all the great food at the pot luck. I am convinced that most everyone prepares what they feel is their best recipe for potlucks so it is always good. Thanks again for all the effort you both put in making these North Texas rallies happen.

Not sure, but we think our water check valve may have gone crazy. It cycles water to the fresh tank no matter what position the control knob is in. We will have out local repair guy stop by and confirm tomorrow.

Glad you made it back safely!

The check valve is what we were dealing with all weekend. Our fresh water tank was filling with the city water on. The Anderson 4-way valve was the problem. One of the o-rings was cracked. There are some threads on the forum dealing with this issue.
