Hello Heartland Owners Club Members,

I have exciting news. Effective 27-Mar-2010, as part of your Heartland Owners Club membership, you will now receive up to 2 permanent Club badges per club rig. This includes all current and future members. So we're going back and having these made for all current members, right now :angel: We expect to have all badges produced and in the mail by 15-May.


Each badge will contain your first and last name and your club number, engraved on a PVC badge material. The badge will also contain a full-color vinyl Club logo.
7491

Each badge will be drilled at the bottom corners so it will readily accept "optional" hangers for other titles, events etc.
7490

Additional permanent Club Member badges (beyond the initial 2) and any hangers you may want, are available for purchase directly from the badge supplier, the Too Crazy Ladies. Reach Beth at 575-525-0141, orders@toocrazyladies.com or www.toocrazyladies.com (http://www.toocrazyladies.com/) They will take your order and you may pay by credit card via PayPal.

So, the 2 badges you are getting for your Club Membership will be engraved shortly, then mailed to the address we have on file for you with the Club. Now, 3 important comments:

1. There are 28 members who have no second person listed in their membership profile. I understand some of you are solo RVers, but I don't wish to presume this and short you that second badge. If you are not a solo RVer and have left off the second name inadvertently, please go back to your "Club" profile to add the secondary person's first and last name and click Update at the bottom of the screen. Here's the link to do this: //heartlandowners.org/vbMemberManager.php For those of you who are solo RVers, first, it's awesome to have you in the Club! Second, we'd love to make you a second badge, perhaps one that says "Guest". This badge can then be kept in your RV and worn by any guest that may be at a Heartland Owners Rally with you at some point. I will be contacting separately, all Club Members who do not have a secondary member listed, as I want to get this right the first time

2. If you want more tags or hangers to be included with your Club badges, contact TooCrazyLadies ASAP as your badges could be worked on very soon!

3. VERY IMPORTANT:

If you are not sure if your Postal Mailing Address is current in the Club database, or if the address you have listed, if not where you will be on 15-May, PLEASE visit this link now: //heartlandowners.org/vbMemberManager.php. Review your US/Canada "Postal Service" mailing address. If it’s no longer accurate, please change it, click "Update", then contact Jim Beletti (//heartlandowners.org/private.php?do=newpm&u=2) that you changed your address. This step is important. If I am not made aware that you have changed your address, then our badge provider will send your badges to the wrong address (address on file). This causes delays in delivery and costly reshipping. PLEASE help us in this matter and do so ASAP. Note too that there are a few members with a blank address. I will contacting all with "missing" addresses separately to obtain a current address.

Finally, as you meet other Heartlanders in your travels, please tell them about this new "Permanent Badge" benefit AND the recently added "10% Parts Discount" benefit.

Below is some Q&A I put together, anticipating some questions you may have.

PERMANENT BADGE FAQS


Q. Who gets a badge?
A. Club Members
Q. How many badges does each Club Member get?
A. Two badges per Club Member number will be provided by the Club
Q. What is the cost for the first 2 badges?
A. There is NO additional cost. It is included in your Club membership fee.
Q. I have 2 children that I want badges for. What is the cost and how do I get them?
A. The cost depends on what exact badge you want and what the prevailing rate is at that time. Likely in the $7 to $10 range. To obtain more information or to order additional or replacement badges, contact our badge producer, TooCrazyLadies at www.toocrazyladies.com (http://www.toocrazyladies.com) or orders@toocrazyladies.com or 575-525-0141.
Q. I have been a club member for some time now, when will I receive my badges?
A. Orders for the first 447 members (894 badges) were placed on 27-March-2010. We anticipate all initial badges to be in the mail not later than 15-May.
Q. I am a new member. How does my badge data get to the badge producer and how long will it take to get my badge, versus those in the initial batch of 894 badges ordered on 27-March-2010?
A. A process is being developed where the badge producer automatically gets an email with the relevant badge data, each time a new Club number is assigned. A club number is assigned after a Club application is completed and after payment is made for the Club membership. Once we are caught up from the initial push, we are using a figure of about 30 days from the date your number is assigned that you will receive your badges.
Q. I received my Club kit, but my badges were not in the kit. Where are they and when will I receive them?
A. Club kits are fulfilled either by the Club President or my Heartland Customer Service when the Club President is traveling. Badges are fulfilled by the badge producer, TooCrazyLadies. At this time, we do not envision Club kits and Club badges to even be fulfilled within the same box. Our commitment on both the Club kits and Club badges is to have them to you within 30 days of assigning you your Club number.
Q. How will my badges get to me?
A. Badges will be send first class U.S. Mail. Same for Canada. There are a few rallies coming up in April 2010. Club members signed up for those rallies may receive their badges at these April 2010 rallies.
Q. What address do you have down for me? I am wondering if it is my current address as my club kit was sent to me at a campground where I was staying in 2009 or I have since moved.
A. Great question. We do NOT know if the address we have down for you is correct. We NEED you to check it right now and make corrections, then send an email to Jim Beletti if changes were made. Here is the link to make changes: //heartlandowners.org/vbMemberManager.php
Here is the link to contact Jim Beletti that you have made changes to your address that will affect where your badge should be mailed to: //heartlandowners.org/private.php?do=newpm&u=2
Q. What does the badge look like?
A. It's squareish in size, made of PVC plastic and is engraved. See am image of it above.
Q. I want a different badge, a different color or some such. How can this be accommodated?
A. You may contact TooCrazyLadies to order a custom product. The Club will not cover the cots however. The Club will only be covering the cost of a single design, consistently worded and produced badge.
Q. What style clip is on the back of the badge?
A. We've elected to use the pin-style clip as it's the most flexible. If you have a Heartland or other lanyard, and if you prefer to have your badge hang at the end of a lanyard rather than being pined to your clothing, you may pin the badge to the cloth of the lanyard, just above the clip of the lanyard.
Q. I don't really want the pin-style clip on my badge. I'd rather have the magnetic clip. How can I get this?
A. The magnetic-style clip costs more than the pin-style clip. IF you place your order before your badge is produced, you can pay the $3.00 difference. To do this, you MUST contact TooCrazyLadies ASAP at TooCrazyLadies at www.toocrazyladies.com (http://www.toocrazyladies.com/) or orders@toocrazyladies.com or 575-525-0141.
Q. I Understand why my badge has my name listed as I entered it in my Club Membership application, but I want it changed to my less formal name or my nickname. How can I get this corrected to my liking?
A. You may contact the TooCrazyLadies to have a second badge produced for you exactly how you want it. The cost will be yours and they are not very expensive.

Great question CJ. This prompted me to write a list of Badge FAQs. See that list in post #3, near the end of the FAQs for answer and why I chose that style.

Sally & Dan Sullivan

Sally and Danny, we don't have any type of data from our members other than name and address. I think Jim B has the coach info? That being said, I think NorCal is about 1/2 and 1/2 retired vs still working. Only a few have kids still at home. Lots of us have grandkids. Mostly Big Horns with a few Landmarks and an occasional Cyclone and Sundance.
There is some overlap with Northern CA, Central CA and Oregon, and it really doesn't matter which one you belong to as you'll be welcome at all events.
Let me know if you have any other questions,
Deb

Here are some analytics I can share. Little bit of number creep during sorting and sub-totaling but I'd say within a fraction of a percent accurate.

Sorted/ranked by where members call home:
10334

Sorted/ranked by chapter membership. Bear in mind we do not have chapters everywhere that we have product owners and club members:
10335

Sorted/ranked by Heartland brand:

If you are a club member, you can get 10% off on parts purchased directly from HL Customer Service. You may need to mention that you are a member, they don't always ask.

Go to Settings, then Edit Profile. Look around and you should find a block where you can call yourself anything you want. The "stock" name changes based on the number of posts you've made. Twelve is still "junior."

Patricia:

You are looking at two different things. "Junior Member" is a Forum notation and is assigned by the number of posts. See the post below to change it to what ever you want.

You paid dues and have a number in the Heartland Owners Club. Your Club position is "Member".

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your interest in the Heartland Owners' Club.

Usually if the submit button does not become available it is because all the necessary fields have not been completed (everything with an asterisk is required). In order to get your club kit to you we do need a shipping address for FedEx AND a mailing address for the US Postal Service.

Another possibility is the VIN for your Heartland product is incorrect. The words VIN format is valid should appear under the VIN. The VIN will be rejected if you copy/paste it from somewhere else.

If the system is rejecting any other entries there will be an error message.

If you are certain that all your information was entered correctly and you received no error messages from the system, it may have been a browser issue, so you might try another browser such as Firefox. I have had problems with Explorer on occasion.

If you still have issues, email me the specifics and I will attempt to help you. I cannot tell what you may have entered because the submit button is what saves the data.
