Pre-Rally Tours / Activities

2019 North American Heartland Owners Rally – Goshen

Pre-Rally Tours and Activities

We are holding a 7-day Pre-Rally (June 3rd – June 9th) for those who can come to Goshen early.  Rally attendees will be able to sign up for the Pre-Rally and Pre-Rally Tours and Activities at the same time they register for the Rally.

You do not need to commit to all 7 days of the Pre-Rally.  You’ll choose your Pre-Rally arrival date during the registration process.

Pre-Rally is a great time to arrive, get settled into your site, meet your neighbors, check out the area, and take in some of the planned, optional Pre-Rally Tours and Activities.  If you plan to take in any of the Technical or Lifestyle presentations during the rally, you will definitely want to arrive at least 1-day prior to the start of the Rally as Rally activities begin first thing Monday morning, June 10th.

Pre-Rally Dates: Monday, June 3rd through Sunday, June 9th.

REGISTRATION AND TICKETS
Each tour / activity will be priced “Per Person”.  Advance registration and payment using the rally registration system will be required.  Rally attendees will be able to register for pre-rally tours and activities during the “rally registration process”.

TOUR CANCELLATION / REFUND STATEMENT
As we will be paying in advance for tour buses, tour guides and in some cases, admission for ticketed events, NO REFUNDS will be issued for these tours. If your plans change such that you cannot attended a Pre-Rally tour that you’ve registered and paid for, we encourage you to gift this to another rally attendee.  Give them your tour tickets and let Club Manager, Julie Hancock (email link) know the names of the people who will be taking your place.

“On Your Own” – Activity Planning Resources

In addition to all 7 Pre-Rally days, we will have some “open periods” during the rally to afford rally attendees more opportunities to “do their own thing” without having to miss any Rally items.

Some sights and activities in and around Elkhart County require advance planning and tickets, while others require no planning and are free.  Below are a couple of resources to consider when planning your non-rally activities.
