Apologies that everyone was addressed as Jon :)

On tapatalk, the link takes me to a page about Jim on vacation in 2007. I'll check in the computer.

X2. But this happens all the time with Tapatalk on my smartphone. At least Jim could put pics of his 2007 vacation on that thread! [emoji905][emoji907]

Wow - this is really weird! On all forum threads where I linked to specific rally articles on the Club website, for Tapatalk users, the links all resolve to a 2007 forum post. As a temporary solution, I edited that 2007 forum post and added a link to the Club website.

Thanks Jim, that did the trick. I actually thought it was just me or my dumb phone.

Jim, Bette says we are interested in all the tours. Tour one, if it turns out to be an evening tour as that is our arrival day; tour two good to go any time; and tour three she would be by herself because I am playing golf but I'm sure Dave and Amy would be happy to watch out for her. LOL

Peggy and I are planning on taking all three of the tours. They look like an excellent way to see a lot of the popular sites and it leaves the driving to someone else . . . perfect! Many thanks to Jim and all the folks that are instrumental in planning and organizing this rally and these events.

We will do Hoover Dam, unless Floyd needs help. Trace

The tours look great, Jim! I'm sure we'll take in at least two of them. On a side note, the last time I was in Vegas and took in the Strip, Vegas Highlights and Hoover Dam Greyline tour was during the Oct. 1987 stock market crash. Between that and my blackjack luck, it was a memorable and educational experience!

Jim or Julie, we will be coming through the Hoover Dam area that Wednesday morning on our way to the rally. If we should happen to be there when you all arrive would it be ok for us to buy a ticket and tag along with the group for the tour?

Hi Ken and Kathy - we are only offering the tour tickets in one fashion and it includes bus the transport cost. That said, I don't want to dissuade you from touring Hoover Dam. I suggest you just buy your tickets when you get there. You may see our group - you may not. Just depends on your timing. You've likely already done this, but I'm curious whether they allow RVs in the parking lot there.

In any event, I look forward to seeing you guys at a venue outside the Midwest :)

To the best of my knowledge you cannot drive an RV across Hoover Dam anymore. You have to take the bypass below the dam. Trace

Jim,
I was attempting to sign up for a tour. When I finally get to the MS Word link, I can't access it. The "LINK" is blue, but it won't go anywhere. I don't get the hand that appears over a link, I only have the curser arrow. Any ideas? Thanks, Trace

Signed Bette up for Hoover Dam Tour, hopefully correctly ��

OOPS, as usual, in a hurry and didn't read info Dave pointed out. The registration editing seemed to work for me but who knows when it comes to this techy stuff

Apologies to all who are receiving the Pre-Rally Tours Announcement email. They are all address to "Jon". My oops on that for failing to check the merge fields.

Anyway, check your inbox for the Pre-Rally Tours Announcement. In it is a summary of the tours and a link to the rally registration page (https://www.regonline.com/builder/site/tab2.aspx?EventID=1746733) as well as a link to a help guide (https://heartlandowners.org/rally/2016/2016_las_vegas_how_to_add_pre-rally_tours.pdf) on how to edit your registration to add one or more pre-rally tours in the Agenda section.

Okay - v2 of the 2016 - Las Vegas - Pre-Rally Tours Announcement email was just sent out (starting at 4:20 pm MDT).

Two errors were fixed in it:



I sent the first email to the 2010 Nashville Rally attendees. This error was made based on a poor assumption of mine when I chose a contact list called "Registered Attendees". In the years since the Nashville rally, we've employed better report naming conventions. Guess we need to clean out some of those old reports :)
"Hi Jon" was replaced with "Hi nnnn", where nnnn is the first name of the rally registrant

This stop was considered but my tour guide felt it was just an "okay" stop and perhaps not worth the time on the tour - so we passed. Sorry.
