    Rally FAQs:
    ------------------------------

    • Q. I live in the area, can I attend the rally without bringing my RV and what would that rate be?
      A. Yes - please plan to attend. Register using the registration link above (when available) and select one of the No RV registration options. The cost will be $75 less without an RV.



    • Q. We're coming in early - any coordinated events/activities going on?
      A. Yes. See the agenda for more details. We are planning an "each pays his own" early arrivals dinner at the Blue Gate in Shipshewana on Tuesday at 5:30 pm



    • Q. What is check-in and check-out time for the Fairgrounds?
      A. We're using noon for both.



    • Q. Will we have specific site numbers assigned to us and if so, when will we know our site number?
      A. Yes - sites will be assigned by the rally team. Preference on sites for a very short window of time will be given to those attendees returning from the 2009 rally here. At the close of that window, the rally team will begin assigning sites. Specific sites requests cannot be honored as it's just too much for us to manage.



    • Q. We are traveling in with a group and would like to be sited together, can this be accommodated?
      A. For very early requests by Chapter Leaders, we will do our best. Groups are getting to the size now though where sufficient contiguous sites may not be able to be accommodated. Get with your Chapter Leader now to advise them of your intention to attend. Chapter Leaders get with the Rally Wagonmaster ASAP with your expected rig counts if you desire contiguous siting



    • Q. We want to come in earlier than Wednesday, day 1 of the rally or stay later than Saturday night, the last night of the rally. Can we do this and what is the cost?
      A. Yes - come in as early and stay as late as you want. If you wish to stay at the Fairgrounds, you will contact and contract with them directly (number above). Note that early and late stays are a function of site availability as determined by the venue. that said, you may or may not get in and if you get in, you may or may not get on your rally site for the early/late days. Not a big worry, but please be aware and be flexible.



    • Q. It's June in the Midwest - it's going to be hot - I NEED 50 amp power to run 2 air conditioners. Will I have 50 amp power?
      A. Maybe. While some of the camp sites we've used in the past are being refurbished and upgraded to 30/50 power, there is no guarantee that all sites will be 50 amp. So please know this up front and carefully consider whether this rally is worth attending if you have 30 amp power.



    • Q. Are the campsites full-hookup (FHU)?
      A. All "planned" sites are FHU. < as of 6-Jan, this is no longer the case as 40 additional sites were added that are 30 amp power and water only (no sewer)



    • Q. Are any of the sites pull-through.
      A. No. They are all back-ins.



    • Q. We've heard the hookups are in the back of the sites, is this true?
      A. Yes - as this is a multi-use facility, camping is only 1 activity that goes on in the areas where we will be camping. To keep sites free of obstructions for other events, all hookups are in fact, in the back of the site. As such, you WILL need longer water and sewer hoses and depending on where your power connects, possibly a longer power cord. I suggest you plan to have 35 feet of water and sewer hose. There is NO camping store or supplies at the venue.



    • Q. Is there cable TV and can I see the southern sky for a satellite dish?
      A. There is no cable TV. And almost all sites are tree/obstruction free with a clear view f the southern sky.



    • Q. I heard or saw on a map that there is a train line nearby. Is this an active line and will the train whistle be heard in the campground.
      A. Yes - the train tracks are at the south edge of the property, the line is active and we will hear the train whistle. That said, during this rally, little time is typically spent at the RV, so the annoyance will not be as bad as it could be, just hanging out at the RV day and night for 4 nights.



    • Q. We want/need to rent a golf cart for the rally. Will there be any to rent.
      A. Maybe - the venue does not have golf carts available, but there is a rental company nearby that we have used in the past. I have am willing to order in extra carts for rentals if there is sufficient interest. Indicate your interest for a rental in this poll (link). You interest there does not constitute a firm commitment. At time of rally registration, you will be able to order and pay for your rental.


    Agenda (summarized):
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    • Tuesday - June 14th: Shipshewana Day! Tuesday is a pre-rally day. We are suggesting early arrivals consider spending the day in the Shipshewana area, then join for an "each pays his own" dinner at the Blue Gate restaurant in Shipshewana at 5:30 pm

    can't wait. We have heard such good things about the rally in '09 that we are hopefully planning on being, up or around there, for a week.

    This is one of the high lights of the year for Lana & I. I sure plan on being there. There is so much to do and so much to learn. I hope we will see all our Heartland friends there!

    Woo-hoo - thanks Kathy. You're hired! Officially moving the Heartland Marketplace to the east section of the ECCC building where the display coaches were in 2009. The space is a little larger too. I think we can fit another 4 vendor booths there or give those we have, a bit more space. I will be in touch.

    George and I are planning on making this our very first rally ever and are really excited about attending. We are anxious to meet all of the great Heartland owners we have been reading threads on this forum from. We have it on the calendar.
