Jason,

These are the exact fees you and Andrea paid in 2009:

Weekend Trailer Parking Fee
X $15

Rally Fee
(per Adult, Mandatory) X $10

Service Project
(optional, perperson)X $5

Sunset Safari and Dinner Buffet
(Sat., Optional)
Note: Other tours
do not require reservations.

X $65

The biggest change is in the parking fee which is not set by me. The increase in rally fee is so I don't lose as much money this year!

Now, there's a rally fee, a parking fee, and I have to notify and pay 2 people.

Not trying to make a negative post; just calling it like it is. We're still planning on coming...and paying. if it lives up to half of the 2009 experience then it's worth every cent.
I think you're wrong. I think I remember writing a check to Dan for the first rally at the Wilds.

Dan - Either way, we plan on being there this year. Do you want me to fill out the form and mail it to you or should I just give it to you when I see you this weekend?

Dan posted before me. He just had a nicer way of saying that you're wrong.

This weekend will be great, over a bottle of wine!

Shameless plug: We still got room for anybody at the Vintage Ohio Rally!

Just to be completely transparent:

The Wilds increased the "Parking Fee" in an effort to generate revenue. I'm in know way going to fault them for that.

The Wilds is an extrodinary place that unfortunatly has taken a major funding hit. I can't imagine what it cost to operate, but I know my $15 per night might just feed a giraffi or wild horse that night.

To clarify from my perspective:

I know not what my wife has paid for. If I didn't write the check, schedule the payment, our send the paypal, then I think it's free. Never trust anything I say without hard data. My memory sucks, especially 2 minutes ago, let alone 2 years ago.

Do not let the ramblings from my poor recollection deter you from attending the Wilds. It was a great time 2 years ago. Maybe the fact that I remember so little of it is a sign of how much fun I had there.

If nothing else, maybe all these posts will keep the thread at the top of the portal for a while. I hope other people were as lost as me and will now wake up and ask their better half to clean up the mess and register like Andrea has for us. I want to see the wilds happen...especially since we've already bought safari tickets.

I'm going to decide next Monday on pulling the plug. If you want to come, let me know now.

I invite you to email or post any questions or concerns.

Sorry to hear of this Dan, you and I have spoken and we said we would prolly be a last minute add in and would most likely be camping at the state park but would come hang with you guys Hope this can be saved. It seems like there are many Rally's this year that aren't getting the membership turnout.

I'm sorry to have to officially announce that this rally is postponed
indefinitely. Thank you to those that supported this effort.
I do encourage all to please consider visiting the Wilds and experiencing all they have to offer. You won't be disappointed.
I look forward to camping with everyone down the road.
-DanB

Bummer - this looked like a great time. Thanks for putting in the effort Dan, hopefully there will be another opportunity.

If anyone else is in the same boat as me (already bought tickets to the The Wilds) or still would like to go, my family is still planning to go on the same weekend, just camping off-site. If interested, please refer to this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f290...end-80879.html
