Inaugural Oklahoma Heartland Rally, May 2012

The Oklahoma Chapter of the Heartland Owners Club (HOC) conducted its inaugural rally May 24-28 at the WinStar RV Park in Thackerville, Oklahoma.  Chapter Leaders, Larry & Donna Keever, did a remarkable job of organizing and hosting the event, which resulted in 13 rigs (27 people) attending.

The rally began with the arrival of the attendees, which included Terry & Carol Hershberger who own “Demo #1.”  Their Heartland coach is a 2009 Pinehurst, previously assigned to Jim Beletti, Director of Owner Interests, Heartland RVs.  This baby has it all!

A couple of brave souls ordered a “Beer-rita,” which is a frozen margarita with a small bottle of Corona beer turned upside down into the mug.  Apparently, the beer seeps into the mug over a period of time.  DSCN2205

Most came as strangers, but all left as an “Oklahoma/Texas Heartland Family!
