5. Come join us, we look forward to seeing you there!

Agenda:
------------------------------
Doc's Seafood - Great place to eat but not very large. Thus, often can be a long wait and they do not take reservations. I've spoken to them and explained we will have a good size group coming for dinner on Thursday. They tell me that if I give them about three hours notice they will set up tables for us and accommodate our group. I'll get a headcount Thursday morning of those planning to attend.

Working on the rest of the agenda.

Rig Wash or Wash & Wax - John Rider, RV & More, will be offering a discount to rally attendees that want to get their rig washed or washed & waxed. See the attached info sheet for John's contact information and details on the available discounts.

Hi Anita & Wayne,

We have a "rally section" that consists of Sites 4,5,6, and 7, 56 thru 61, 62 thru 68, and 85, 86, and 87. Lynne (resort manager) is not assigning sites just yet but I'm sure if there is a particular site that y'all would like (in the rally section or elsewhere) she would do her best put you in it. For instance Site 8 is a nice one as it is the only lake site set up for a towable.

For anyone unfamiliar with the area the route Emmitt36535 suggested is certainly an option. However, the traffic on HWY 59 is terrible and the turns on to Canal road (from either end) are not that friendly for big RVs. The Beach Expressway is twice as fast and the toll is pretty cheap ($5.50 for 4 axels and $6.50 for 6 if you have a toy hauler). I've gone both ways and found it a much more relaxing trip to take the expressway.

It well worth the extra 6.50. We use the other way when we are just running around without the rv.

Hi Emmitt,

Heartland rallies are not specific to any of the Heartland sub-brands, like North Trail, or Bighorn (there are a lot of sub-brands). So at any Heartland Rally you can expect a wide variety of trailers, mostly all manufactured by Heartland. Occasionally an SOB (Some Other Brand) will join a rally, but that's the exception.

Activities also vary by chapter. There's generally a meet and greet evening with some type of refreshments. There's usually a dinner; often a pot luck. Sometimes there will be scheduled events, like everyone going to a local restaurant. There are game nights at some rallies, tours of Heartland rigs at some rallies, visits to local attractions, etc.

One way to get an idea about a specific rally is to look at the EVENTS tab and select a rally. Post #1 will usually detail what's planned.

Regional Rallies are larger, with a bigger budget provided by the Club, and have more activies, meals, entertainment, etc.

And the North American Rally, in Goshen, IN in June 2017, draws a few hundred rigs from all over the U.S. and Canada. Don't miss the pre-rally. Tours, Entertainment, meals, vendor seminars, special pricing on accessories, and much more.

Anyone have a head count on the Orange Beach Rally? I keep getting updates on new reservations and although I'm excited about the gathering, I keep thinking we only have twenty sites reserved and there are other groups with functions going on during that time. I hope that if anyone is still indecisive that they go ahead and make up their mind to reserve a campsite before they no longer have options! :cool:

Post No. 1 lists the attendees and it is accurate as of today, 2/24/2017. We have been in Orange Beach the past several days confirming details for the rally, and the number of sites available was one of the topics of discussion. While we may have some drop out, due to a change in plans, we could easily have as many as 5-10 or more sign up. Lynn (resort manager) assured me that this was no problem, they could accommodate us and still keep the group together. So do not worry about the number of sites available, come and have a good time.

Hi Paul & Shelia,
I have called and canceled my reservation due to the fact of not having enough recovery time after surgery on April 5th. I am having neck surgery to repair 3 disc in my neck. Have fun and I will miss seeing everyone.

Paul and Sheila,
This is to let you know that Paula and I will not be able to attend the Alabama State Rally. I received an email that there are certain dog breeds that are not acceptable to Pandion Ridge RV Resort and our 10 year old Boxer, Dakota is on the list.
At the time we made reservations, they did not say that there are breed restrictions. We do enjoy going to state rallies and as our dog is our family, we are hurt and really put off. Maybe in the future, restrictions could be put in the rally
postings so we all know.

Thanks and will see you in Goshen,
Glenn and Paula Martin

Glenn and Paula,

I too, just received the email from the RV Park explaining their pet policy and identification of what their insurance carrier considers “aggressive breeds.” After talking with the RV Park management, it my understanding that the email was the result of a recent directive (last couple of weeks) by their insurance carrier to strictly enforce the pet policy and breed restrictions. I’m assuming there was something that prompted this but never the less it doesn’t make it any easier to accept for owners of pets identified on the list.

Thanks for letting us know you had to cancel. We look forward to seeing you and Dakota in Goshen.

Paul and Sheila...may have met you but can't remember for sure. We are Dick and Reta Hill, aka, thehillsonwheels. For health reasons, we are giving up camping. Have been talking with our buds, Hogan & Donna and Eric & Dorothy, and they have talked us into one last hoorah.

Reta loves Doc's oysters so we would like to be part of the Thursday evening eat out and any other rally gatherings of HOC members. We are still members but will be staying at a motel nearby.

Sorry to have taken so long to let you know....look forward to being with "family" one more time.
