    FYI - For those who want to attend the Rally but can't stay on-site, isn't it possible for them to stay at one of the other area RV parks on their own and drive over to the Fairground venue for the day to attend the activities? Just wondering?

    Hey Jim - you never stop wondering things do you? Keep that mind working and sharp

    Seriously - great questions Jim.

    For all, the honest truth is:

    The rally costs about $400 per rig to put on. Rally attendees pay $175. So, the $225 difference x 200 = $45,000. I had to budget for this difference. The budget is approved and will not be changed.

    As one can see from the math, the rally is heavily subsidized by Heartland as a thank you to those who can make it. But since I have to budget these dollars a year in advance, it's now locked.

    Now, if someone wanted to pay the full unsubsidized rate (Jim's next question/wondering ), I'd have to consider that.

    This all said, I want to state that I never really wanted any of this to come out. Not that it's a secret, but no need to bother attendees with such matters as it's the behind the scenes business stuff that I deal with.

    Jim

    Good point Mark - and spot on. The Heartland Owners Club exists for the benefit of its members. Having an exclusive registration window to sign-up for the biggest Club event of the year has become more and more important and the 2011 rally seems to be the turning point.

    I didn't get registered in time! What are my options?

    If you were unable to register for the rally before it sold out - there is still hope. See this thread for the process to be Waitlisted. It really does work!

    Hi Gene (and Song),

    I love potlucks. But on this scale (over 400 people), potlucks are a huge challenge. We will be having one. It's on Thursday night. I am catering the meat (Nelson's Port-a-Pit chicken) and you all are bringing side dishes, salads, desserts Still noodling how to pull it off.

    We do have one rally breakfast - it's Sunday. It will be catered. Looking forward to seeing you guys again. No new RV for you this rally Unless you really want one.

    Jim

    Hey all,

    We had our first rally cancellation today. As planned, the person at the top of the Waitlist (now with 14 names on it) was automatically removed from the list and I assume the process sent that person an email, giving them 24 hours to click on the link in it, to register for the rally.

    The point I want to make is that the Waitlist process is real, it's automatic and thus far, it seems to be working. What I do not know is, if a person does not respond within 24 hours and the next person on the list is notified, does the first person get back on the list automatically and if so, are they next again or now last. I'll update when I learn more on that.

    Jim
