Hello everyone!

The first Oregon Rally is scheduled for June 12-15, 2009 at Seven Feathers RV Resort. (http://www.sevenfeathersrvresort.com/index.php)

Some or all members of the group can then meet for a follow-up, or post-rally, at Winchester Bay RV Resort (http://www.marinarvresort.com/camping.htm) on the beautiful Oregon Coast. We'll arrive on June 15th and check out on the 18th.:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Of course, any who can't make it to Seven Feathers, but can get to Winchester Bay are welcome to join us then.

Any Heartland owners from other states who want to come to Oregon, please do!:D:D:D

I haven't contacted the parks yet to reserve a group of sites or get rally rates. I'll do that before too long, but I wanted to get a good idea of how many sites we'll need at each location. I'll post rate information as soon as I get it from both parks.

The following people have expressed interest in both parts of the trip.

Mark and Kristy (ziggy)
Deb and Ray (slmayor)
Art and Teresa (TessaM)
Dale and Judy (dbarnard)
Dave and Kathy with SOB friends (dtvista)

Possibly
Chuck and Deb (Chuck Richard)
two SOB friends with Art and Teresa (Jim and Lucy, John and Lori)

It's marked on our calendar!

I have a suggestion.... it would be nice if all of us could be parked near the Club House or BBQ Pavilion. The pavilion is a nice covered area where we can have our get-togethers and potlucks, and we won't have to walk too far. It's a nicer location than the other side, which we found to be noisy from all the construction. Something to think about.... ;):)

Thanks. We haven't stayed there before so I had no idea where the best areas would be. I'll request one of those locations.

We were thinking the same thing, Bill. I think it's South Oregon. Better luck with weather there! Plus we are already planning Rock Creek with some other friends a couple of week later, so might try a Heartland Rally elsewhere. How are you guys doing? Snowmobiling yet?
Oregon people - you OK with some Canadians joining you?

Seven Feathers RV Resort is 25 miles south of Roseburg on I-5.. We have been there several times and it may be one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. I hope you find time to make it down to the Rally. We look forward meeting you.

A quick note about our Rally's. At the last two Rally's, Las Vegas and Jackson, we discussed the possibility of having a Western Regional Rally. One of the issues about the National Rally is that many of us these days would have a difficult time traveling that distance. Jim Beletti said he would support this idea. So keep in the back of your mind something in 2010.

Bill and Pat, BigRedTruck,
Of course you are welcome to come to the rally. As dtvista said, Seven Feathers is on I5 just south of Roseburg which is in Southern Oregon, but not the far south like we live. Winchester Bay is west of Roseburg on th coast near Reedsport. Its an easy drive from Seven Feathers and only takes a couple of hours of scenic driving to get there.

Everybody who owns a Heartland or comes with someone who owns one is welcome.

For all those will toyhaulers, Winchester Bay is right outside the entrance to the sand dunes. Lots of ATVs and motorcyles like to go out there and rip around in the sand. You can always rent machines if you can't bring your own.

Well,
I've got to go to school..... I would rather be camping!

Mark and Kristy,

We are also very interested and are just working the details with "Work":( but will for sure try and be at seven feathers and trying to see if we can make both.

Chuck and Debby:D

Kristy, If I might butt in and say; while you can stay there with the atv stuff, you cant run em in the park. You have to tow or haul em out of the park before you start em up. We were there last year during the "dune fest" Holy Cow, never saw so many of the little obnoxious lil things in one place before. But with the park rules, it really wasn't an issue for us. I'm sure it was a pain for the riders.

That said, its one of the nicest parks we've stayed at. Although the spaces are a bit close together.

Hope you can work it out with the job so you can join us. Making any part of it would be better than missing it all together.

Thanks Tim for bringing that up. I should have mentioned that you can't start them up in the park. The friends we were with were staying in one of the county parks across the road, so it really didn't dawn on me to bring it up. The park has some pretty strict rules so people who don't use ATVs can enjoy the area as much as the people who do bring them along.

That being said, it isn't much of a walk to get out of the park unless you end up at the far end. We could also look at getting a space in the county park for one of the toy haulers who want to come and others could put their toys in that space too so they wouldn't have to walk them around a lot. That one toy hauler's people could easily join us, or us them, for whatever activities we do.

That's something we could figure out later I guess when we know more about who is coming for sure.

Right now, I'm looking at asking Seven Feathers for a block of 15 sites as per Teresa's (TessaM) suggestion. I'll have to see what kind of payment arrangements they want to set aside the sites and what kind of rally pricing I can get. I plan to call them this weekend, so I'll let everyone know what I find out.

I want you to know that both Dave and Kathy Timpone (dtvista) and Troy and Carol Ratliff (our SOB's) are a go for the Rally and for Wenchester. We will probably come in early Wed or Thur to Seven Featers and stay Mon -Thurs in Wenchester. Troy and Carol are with the same McKenzie group that Teresa's group are with. We will be SOB's at each others Rally.

Hay Dale: Both Troy and I will be bring our clubs. I'm sure John will want to play. Troy played the course last year at the McKenzie Rally. Said it was a great course. He hopes it is still open. They were having finacial problems. ----Anyone wanting to play, drop a note here to let us know you are initerested.

Hi Ziggy,
We are interested in going to the 2009 Oregon rally at 7 Feathers as well as the follow up in Winchester Bay. Since it is my DW Debbi's bday on June 13th, I have to sell her a little on the idea of roughing it up in Oregon LOL. Put us down as very interested. Dave and Kathy, you can always throw her a bday party, so we can guilt her into it. I wanna go! Maybe JimBo will fly in for the occaision. Better book him early as he is a very popular fellow.

You know how nice the Oasis was in Las Vegas, and how nice Jackson Rachera was. Well Seven Feather is a step above both, and Wenchester and the Oegon coast is really nice. I know you live next to the Southern Calif ocean, but the Oregon Coast is magnificant. Soooooo if Debbi comes up (she can even bring you) on Saturday I will have something for her Bday......I'm thinking Dark Chocolate and Cabernet :-)

Hi Christy,
Please add Diana and I to your list of both places. I think we get the "closest" award on both weekends. It's just a hop, skip and jump for us to both places. Seems like this could get BIG!!!

Dave and Kathy,
I promise we will try to come to Oregon as the Goshen trip is just too far for the national rally. It's still a long trip so maybe we can meet you guys and others in northern ca for a stopover. btw, Deb hates dark chocolate, but loves milk chocolate and Cabernet is her favorite, as the Paso Robles wine country trip after Jackson emptied our bank account with many bottles of wine in exchange. Hopefully, we will see you guys before then and we can all talk her into coming. Thanks for the kind words. Funny you mention the Oasis in as we are going there this morning for 3 days for a party for her father in vegas. we are meeting forrest and karen for sunday nite dinner as well.
We shall talk soon to discuss our next camping trip. We have traveled over 11,000 miles in our big horn since our valentines day disaster with minimal mishaps thanks to all the help of the many heartland owners advice and mentorship.

Larry,

You and Deb have really traveled this year in the 'Horn. Good for you.

I now need to take another trip this year to catch you on miles towed. I am at around 10k. Got a trip planned to Louisville, KY next weekend. That will add over 1k.

Hope to see all you Californians again next year. Give my best to Forrest and Karen.

Be sure to talk Forrest and Karen into coming to the Oregon Rally... I know you can do it.

This is going to be great fun!
Larry, tell Debbi we'll have a party for her. Ray's birthday is the 18th. We can have one then too! Mine will have already happened on the 1st. A bunch of Gemini's... WhoooHooo!
I'm hoping Ray will take the plunge and retire on his birthday, then we could have a longer trip, but not holding my breath.
I think Ray would also play golf, I would like to as well, but I really suck after not playing for a couple years after I hurt my back. Let's just say I have an "adaptive" golf swing now. LOL
If some of you want to make the trip in a couple legs, let me know what days and I can find some spaces up here for overnight. About 4 hours to Canyonville from here if you drive at a normal pace.

Dave, Glad to here you and Troy are bringing your stix. I agree that John will play also. He told me he won a free round there at their SOB rally at Seven Feathers. So if Deb & Ray bring their stix this could develope into something real fun. I hope there is more golfers that sign up. At Jackson I went over to Ione and joined a 3-some of locals for a round. I enjoyed the round, as always, but it would have been more fun with someone from are group.

Jim, Any Pic's from John yet?

dtvista
10-31-2008, 04:50 PM

I'm sure we will get more golfers. I think this Rally is going to grow. Maybe we can even find a course over at the coast for a second round.

ziggy
10-31-2008, 05:52 PM
Well, we got another one. Marybeth, aka flamingknitter, will be joining us.

So we're up to 11 rigs that say they will come (Larry you are in this group or I'll send Dave down to get you!), and to both parts if I understood all of them correctly, with 5 (Dennis, I put you here for now) more saying they might come.

I'm getting excited! I know its over 7 months away, but it gets cold in Oregon and we have to have something to look forward to!


Thanks Dave (dtvista) for going out and recruiting for us. Keep talking it up!

Hey Jim, How many will be at the National Rally? We need a goal to beat!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

May as well put me in as a possible, even if Larry is going to be there (Hi Bro), just have to see if I can get away from the job during that time. I love both Seven Feathers and Winchesgter Bay, we spent time at both of them last year.

Dave, There is a real nice nine hole course in Reedsport, just 15 minutes from Winchester Bay. I've played it several times.

ziggy
10-31-2008, 06:38 PM
Here's the current list.

Mark and Kristy (ziggy)
Deb and Ray (slmayor) Birthday party "needed" for Ray on the 18th or maybe the night of the 17th?
Art and Teresa (TessaM)
Dale and Judy (dbarnard)
Dave and Kathy (dtvista)
Troy and Carol (SOB with Dave and Kathy)
Marybeth (Flamingknitter)
Gary and Diana (boatdoc)
Larry and Debbie (larryheadhunter aka Crash:D) Birthday party "needed" on the 13th for Debbie!

Possibles
Bill and Patty (Bill&Pat)
Brent and Lori (bigredtruck)
Gary and Edie (grizzlygiant)
Chuck and Debbie (Chuck Richard) at least the 7 Feathers part/maybe all
Dennis and Debbie (DennisZ)
Jim and Lucy (SOB with Art and Teresa)
John and Lori (SOB with Art and Lori)


Did I miss anyone?

jbeletti
10-31-2008, 09:08 PM
100 rigs Kristy - that's how many sites I have reserved. Don't think you will top that but I welcome the challenge. You are doing great and I am bummed that I won't be able to make it. That said, I am thrilled that there is a really nice rally shaping up in the West during the same time as the North American Rally as it gives those 2000+ miles to the west of Goshen, another option during the same period to attend a great rally.

Have fun y'all.

Jim

ziggy
10-31-2008, 11:05 PM
OK, 100 might be a little much to beat, but maybe we can make 25 or so? That would be pretty respectable for the first Oregon rally.
Kristy

11-01-2008, 08:19 AM
25 would be HUGE for any chapter rally. It has been done and it will be great if you guys can do it. Hope you do!

THREAD CLOSED - SEE LATEST INFO ON THIS RALLY IN CURRENT THREAD AT THIS LINK (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php?t=7549). ADMIN

Hi everyone,

I need to know how you feel ASAP so I can let the parks know.....

I called Seven Feathers today and found out that they can't take us anytime in June. There is one window in July (10-13) but we might not be able to be together. Evidently lots of RV groups have decided that they are the place to go next year. They already have a group of 40 rigs and a group of 120 rigs with people coming early and staying late from both groups on our dates. How dare they!:mad:

I called Winchester Bay and they have room for us in June, but they don't have a block of sites in July.

I started another thread for this new plan in the Oregon folder.

Who's up for it?

Kristy
