Additional Info:------------------------------We are excited to return to the Branson KOA for our South Central Region Rally. Everyone loves the entertainment "strip" in Branson.The rally will begin on Thursday May 10th but we urge all attendees to come in early to take in a show or three.The KOA is located on a hilly site and walking can be difficult, but the park offers rental golf carts. The regular price of site rentals is $45, however if we reach 50 or more rigs in attendance our rate will be $41, so let's make this a record for attendance and exceed it.We will publish an agenda as soon as it can be finalized.

NOTE: All attendee MUST BE members of the Heartland Owners Club and own a Heartland RV trailer.

Please add you tee shirt sizes when you sign up here! If you've already signed up, please either add them here or send an email or PM with your sizes.

Countdown...! Looking forward to this! Garry, we no longer need Cheap Heat, but thanks anyway! Also, we will need to leave 1 day earlier than planned...on the 10th. I don’t suppose there are any refunds when this happens, right? Or perhaps the $20 could be used for a donation to Soldier’s Best Friend?

hey friends- I think you put this in the wrong thread. I believe you meant to put it in the Pueblo/mountain region rally thread. Maybe a moderator can move it for you....pretty please

Just finished this tour. Aquarium is outstanding! If your a fishing enthusiast, much to see in the museum sections-lures, tackle, memorabilia, etc.
Wildlife tour too was quite interesting with mounts from all over the world.
We spent 3 1/2 hrs and skimmed many exhibits. Lots of walking and steps. ADA at critical sections.
Hopefully when you visit simultaneous school field trips will be few. I’ll leave it at that...

Attention!!
The following people need to contact Angie at the Branson KOA (417 334-4414) about their reservations.
Frank and Debbie Baker
Debbie Fouts
John and Kathy O'Donnell
Doug and Kathy Robertson
Dave Thurber

The two following people have made a reservation, but chose a luxury site. We do not honor group rate for luxury sites. The only discount they could get is 10% with a KOA Value Kard:

Bradley & Toya Black
Joseph & SanDee Marks

They can choose to stay in the luxury sites as long as they are aware of the discount issue. If they want to change to a regular site for the group rate, they need to contact Angie directly.

I doubt it, at least anything like at the Goshen rally. I'm sure there are some people in town that do it, you'd probably have to talk to them in the office to see, and make your own arrangements.
