We are scheduled for site 501 from the 17th to the 20th. We live close by in South Lebanon and we will probably only have a handful of trips before this. I did try and get site 510 but they said it was reserved by someone not in the group.

We are on our way home (Lima) after spending the winter in Florida. We arrived this afternoon about 4:45 pm. It is really cold after having the warm weather. It was a cooler winter but was still warm during the day. We plan on talking with them tomorrow about our Rally sites so will let you know the outcome of our conversation.

Hello everyone, Happy Spring lol! Lots of strange weather here in Ohio. Warm & sunny one day and snow the next. We are scouting out the Rally site and it is pretty amazing! We know it will be even better come summertime. We will be checking out a Restaurant as a possible choice for supper on Friday evening. We now have 14 Rigs registered so far. This area is really fantastic for everyone to have some fabulous adventures! If anyone has suggestions for group activities, please let us know. Looking forward to seeing you all in August.

We reserved 20 sites for the Rally and are available until July 16, 2018. If you wait until after that date to register, you may not be with our group. There are 8 sites left in our pool now because 2 Members opted for Deluxe sites in our area. The sites available are 61, 63, 67, 505, 515. 516, 518, & 521. The owners have been making improvements on the Campground. Hoping to see some more members at our Rally. We are really looking forward to our first Rally.

Mark & Roberta,

Call the Lebanon/Cincinnati NE KOA at 513-932-7717 if you mention you are with Heartland Club rally they should give you the rates at Thurs - Sat $57.76 per night, Sun-Wed $54.76 per night.

Perhaps if you take the loop around site 520 you should be able to go pretty straight at it instead of attempting to make that hard of a left. We stayed there last weekend and was led to our site I'm sure they're aware and will direct you accordingly.

Safe travels. :)

Hello everyone,

We are about 10 weeks away from the start of the Ohio Rally. There are 3 sites left in our pool that are held until July 17th. After that the Campground may have or may not have sites available. Check out the TENATIVE Rally schedule located on the last page under Thumbnails. Also we have 2 dinners scheduled, one on Thursday at the Buffet located at Miami Valley Gaming. The other one is Friday at The Houston Inn. Please let us know if you plan on attending the dinners so we can get a head count. We will need this by August 11th. Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

Anyone making a reservation, please let us. As always know, if there are any questions or concerns please contact us.

So sorry to hear that you are unable to attend the Rally. Hope to see you at another Rally in the future.

Only 4 weeks until the Ohio Rally. Any sites left in our Pool will be released today. You can still attend the Rally if the KOAhas open sites available. It just means that you may be in a different part of the campground from the rest of the members.

Check out our schedule for the Rally and also the Charity we are sponsoring. If you plan on attending any of the dinners out and have not let us know, please RSVP by August 11th. We have had numerous donations for our Door Prize giveaway plus there will be a Silent Auction.

There is also a Map of the Campground showing where all the members are staying. The Schedule, Charity, and Map are located on the last page of this thread under Attached Thumbnails.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Rally and safe travels to all.

We just spent a few days at the Lebanon KOA. This is going to be an excellent destination for our Rally. We really appreciate Bob and Connie Sims setting up this Rally Site. We visited several RV stores and obtained more goodies for our Welcome Bags. Also finalized arrangements at the Houston Inn in Lebanon. We will have a room reserved for our group and everyone will be able to order off the Menu and enjoy the 52+ item Salad Bar. Our Rally starts 3 weeks from tomorrow.

Any questions or concerns, please contact us.

See everyone soon and have safe travels

We are looking forward to our first rally even though it is only about 10 minutes from our house. We will be camping at East Harbor State park till the 16th then home for a day to replenish before going to the KOA on Friday. I was worried about the tight turn to get into our spot but they said they escort us on the scenic rout and come in from the other direction.

I waited as long as I could hoping I would not have to cancel for this rally.

As much as I am truely grateful for Wayne to have a good job, it seems that planning a trip is next to impossible.
About the time I cancel, they will change the schedule and then we won’t have a spot.

*Anyone need a great site?
#511 is now available.


Everyone enjoy the rally and we we will miss seeing you all!

We thought we would not be coming in until Friday, but will be able to get there Thursday (not early enough for dinner though).
I (Kathy) want to go to Fabric Shack in Waynesville sometime Friday or Saturday - any other ladies want to go along?
See everyone soon!

Well Folks....

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that Kellie and I are going to have to cancel our attendance at the rally. Not being full-time quite yet, the work gets in the way sometimes. With a new major client from the Cincinnati area getting ready to come on board, I need to stay here to prep. We were signed up in spot #63 and were signed up for both dinners. I have let the kind folks at the KOA know we will not be there and ask that you please remove us from the reservations list.

Please accept our sincere apologies and our hope that we will catch up with all y'all very soon.

Take care and we hope you have a great time!!

We are also sad that you are unable to attend the Ohio Rally. Maybe next year. We know that you are disappointed and we understand about the work situation.

On another note we are here in Lebanon preparing for the Rally to start on Thursday. We also signed up a new member last evening, Henry & Jessica Prince. Everyone have safe travels to the Rally.

We are going to get some firewood tomorrow but if you have room it would be good to have scrap and smaller starter wood.

Thanks,

We really appreciate all the kind words from all of those attending the Rally plus all the generosity of everyone. It couldn't have happened without all those attending. We were really able to build up the treasury of this Ohio Chapter. The Silent Auction was great, 50/30/20 was awesome plus our 1st Corn hole tournament was a great success. We met many new friends and met up with many old friends.

We had many hands helping when it was needed. We especially want to thank Ken and Kathy AmRhein for manning the Campfire, Bob and Sheila Prince for the Wednesday Campfire, helping cook breakfast Friday and Saturday, Gerry and Debi Atkinson for coordinating the Corn hole tournament and hot dog lunch plus all the other friends who pitched in wherever and whenever needed.

We did have some rain but it did not stop us from having fun! We want to include our thanks and appreciation to all the Vendors, Businesses, Companies, and People who donated items for our Silent Auction & Door prize giveaway. We want to thank everyone for attending the Rally and hope to see everyone next year.

Steph and I had a great time. Sorry we had to depart early, but with them changing my schedule for work I had to be in at 2 pm instead of 10 pm we had to leave. It was so nice the way everybody treated us when we were there just visiting for the few hours we could. We can't wait for the next rally to get here.
Yes starting Sept 1, 2018 I will be retired from Corrections after almost 27 years. Steph is going June 1, 2019 in time for the National
