I understand Jim's desire to clarify Guaranty's position with regard to the upcoming rally, but I will NOT allow these forums to become a platform for discussion regarding the political "differences" of two factions of Alpine Owners, or anyone else for that matter.
Jim's post will stay, but PLEASE let's keep the political discussions out of these forums.

For the record, Danny Gayhart has tendered his resignation as an iRV2 moderator.

We need to move on folks....

Takepride,

I will accept your thanks, but have to let you know that I so far have only been the messenger. Dixie and I are still out of town, but will help when we get back and do what we can, at the rally, to help. Jim/Guaranty gets the big thanks for stepping in at the last minute to give us this rally. The Alpine owners who are doing the real work, as we speak, you can thank at the rally.

Danny- Sorry to see you go, and especially sorry to see you go in a huff. Thanks for everything.

Jim H.- A group Vegas-show excursion might be fun for the rally goers. I asked an insider @ Cirque du Soleil and should have contact info later today for their group ticket source; will relay when that comes in.
Mike

Hi Everyone,

We need some help from everyone who is planning on attending the Rally. Anyone who has mailed their application to Jim, please send a confirmation email or call him. He is working at the Quartzsite lot and won't be home until the first of Feb. Anyone who wants to come but hasn't committed, please do so right away.

email jim.hardy@guaranty.com
Jim Hardy 1 541 915-6364
Kathie Hardy 1 541 915-6400

Jim is planning some great stuff for us and is having to commit some big bucks. It will help greatly if he can get a firm number for the rally ASAP. Guaranty and WRV are supporting this rally as they always do and you will get more than you pay for. I have heard some of what is being planned and can guarantee that this is going to be a really great rally. Jim is planning on posting more information later today about what is planned. I am looking forward to seeing lots of my friends there and us all having lots of fun. Don't miss out, there are a limited number sites available and it is first come first confirmed.

For those of you who might want to come early, fill in the days between the Pahrump rally and this one or stay late here is a link to a coupon for 5 free nights at the resort. This can not be used for the rally nights but is good for any other days that they have available.

Update on the Itinerary of Las Vegas Rally.

We still do not have the "finished" Itinerary, but I can give some insite.

Check-in is on Feb. 20th. Anyone who wishes to arrive early or stay after the Rally can do so free by going to the Las Vegas Outdoor Resorts web site where you can download a Complimentary Coupon and stay as Guest of Las Vegas Outdoor Resorts for up to six days for free. Advance reservations are required and it is not valid during the Rally.

We will have the usual potluck/heavy Hors'douerves that evening with a social 1/2 hour beginning at 4:30 p.m. At 7:00 p.m. we have tentatively planned a Texas Hold-em Tournament with a $10.00 buy in.
There will be some "special" prizes given out, along with the $ prizes.

We have a 4X4 trip scheduled with a local enthusiast planned for one of the days. This will be a 3/4 day excursion probably through the "Valley of the Fire" and including Lake Mead.

We will have a pet parade with prizes given to the Class Valedictorian, Most Athletic, Best Dressed, Best Personality, Class Flirt, Class Clown, Best looking etc., so start getting your pets ready!!!

We are planning a Guaranty bean bag competition.

We will have the traditional Guaranty Wine & Cheese event.

We will have at least two dinners, one of which will be at the Excalibur, taking part in their "Tournament of Kings" extravaganza dinner & show.

One NATIONAL Thousand Trails Membership, valued at $9,995*, will be given away. Compliments of Guaranty RV and Thousand Trails. *Annual dues of $549 are required to activate the membership. This will be a drawing. To get into the drawing you have to be signed up and at the rally. This is a "NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP", good anywhere in the United States.

There will be a caravan to the main FMCA Rally in Pomona.

I am currently at our store in Quartzite and will not be back in Oregon until around the 1st of Feb. Use of the internet here is much more difficult and time-consuming than normal usage back home. We only have 75 spaces available. This will be on a first come first serve basis. If you have sent in your money without letting us know, be sure you communicate. My e-mail is jim.hardy@guaranty.com and/or Kathie's (my wife)e-mail is theskymeadow@clearwire.net

Thanks

"One team, One voice, One purpose.........TO HAVE FUN"

It will certainly be a pleasure when this rally or whatever you are know calling it is over.

Danny, like Mike I am very sorry to see you leave. You have been a real asset to me and I would assume a number of other members. By the way I received my shocks yesterday. If it is not to cold this weekend I will put them on. Thanks again for all your help.

TED,

I am sorry you have such a negative attitude towards the rally. It is not our intent to upstage or degrade anyone. If you would like to express your ill feelings, I welcome them, but would you agree that doing it privately would be more benificial to both of us? My e-mail is jim.hardy@guaranty.com

Jim Hardy, the only negative attitude I have towards this rally is the extreme amount of posting and bickering that many have done. I thought rallies were to be enjoyable, entertaining and a learning experience. This is something new and different to me. Absolutely no offense to you or Guaranty. Read back through the posts and you will certainly get my meaning. Possibly it is the childish bickering that should have been done privately!

Thanks Ted, I could not agree with you more on the childish bickering part. I do want to make one thing perfectly clear. This is not an ACA Rally. It is a Guaranty Rally. I would ask everbody involved to NOT USE THE ACA MEMBERS E-MAIL LIST TO PROMOTE THIS RALLY. My goal is to bring the members back together again, not divide or create bipartician views. Please respect these wishes. As this is a grass roots event, I would ask all of you to get your friends to come. Guaranty's promise to you is we will give 110% to make this an enjoyable rally. Your $300.00 will be a GREAT VALUE. Let's get ready to HAVE SOME FUN.
