Today, Tony joined the Heartlanders to go golfing. About 20 went to Black Squirrel Golf Club. While Tony was doing that, I worked to gather items going on the "Owner-to-Owner Sale Table", and getting all of the Agenda, Seminar, Marketplace, Region Event, and Sponsor Posters up where they go and prepped for the following days. Our job is to make sure they get changed out properly every day during the rally. (putting up and/or changing nearly forty 24x36 posters, over the course of 6 days.)
I also have a table in the Marketplace building for my Hairball Creative Business, and I'm selling easy custom designed (template) "Travel Cards". So I was setting that display up, as well.
I was also able to visit with the Heartland Customer Service Manager about some of our concerns about the rig we had during our warranty period that have not been addressed. Nothing major--stuff that we didn't feel was worth hauling to a dealer or having a tech out -- when it could be normal. He said they would be sure to look at them while we were here. I was told they would by the Service Rep I'd emailed earlier, but it was nice to hear from the head guy, himself.
After doing all that work for the Rally in the morning, I came home and had lunch. Not too much later, Tony came home and ate, as well. He said they had a really good time golfing. He took a shower and took a nap, while I did some more Hairball work.
After he got up, we decided to head to Rise n'Roll. We encountered this amazing bakery 2 years ago at the Pre Rally, and have been craving it ever since. Finally, we were able to get away and go!
They have a new treat, Ice cream-stuffed donuts! Wow, they were really good. We also picked up a dozen of their famous Cinnamon Caramel donuts and brought them back.
After we returned, we joined the in-progress Chili Dog Meet-and-Greet, which was "bring your own" chair and drinks, food supplied. We had a good visit with various folks. After dinner, we headed back to the rig and collapsed. The day got hot and toasty, and that seemed to drain both of us in our endeavors. It was another great, busy pre-rally day!
pics to come.
