Hi there!

I booked a site from the 24th through the 26th and it's our first rally!! So excited to join you guys! Yeah Riley is ok, could be worst lol. So i booked at Compton Ridge campground, is that ok? The only thing is she wasn't sure on the price, wasn't that already previously agreed on? She said we'd know the final total when we get there. Funny thing was too that I first called to make sure that there was space and she quoted me 40$ minus 10% group discount and then when I called to book she said it was 60? I'm confused may call them again.

Originally when the event was booked, we were supposed to get a group rate if we had 20 trailers. The weekend of the event is one of their "Witchy Weekends" that is considered a holiday, and is never discounted. Because of hosting 4 previous events at the campground, they made the group requirement 20 trailers because of all of the additional activities they include for the weekend (See the flyer posted earlier in this thread). A couple of weeks ago, the park called and offered me 10% off the Holiday rate if we could not get the 20 trailers for the event. I probably need to call Rene at the park to see where we are at, but I don't think we are at 20 yet. As far as the rate you were quoted, here is what I think is going on. The park has many different types of sites. Primitive, fully paved, etc. Better sites are a higher cost per night. Perhaps you got one of the nicer places to park. I don't even think the park has grouped us together since call ins to book were sporadic.

Im going to cal now to see what is going on. As long as you told them you were with the Airstream event then it should be okay.

Steve

Hey Steve,

yes I told them, I spoke to Miranda. I was kind of in a rush and not able to really ask and just took her word. I would hope that we are all together sort of, because if at an Airstream rally you wanna be with Airstreamers lol...

Okay,

I too just spoke with Miranda and was told there are 30 spots available between the North and South Campgrounds. That means plenty of room for people waiting till the last couple of weeks to jump on the rally wagon. We are actually very close to 20 trailers, and could possibly get the BIG discount with a few more attendees. I don't know if y'all have looked at the list of events the park is hosting for the weekend we are there, but we look forward to Hay rides, the spook house, hot dogs, marshmallows, and wassel, bonfires, the costume contest, and the kids trick or treating!

When the park changed owners a few months ago, they put a new reservation policy into place...FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. This is highly annoying to me! As a rally planner, I want all of my attendees to be grouped together. First come first served makes that difficult especially when people are arriving a day late (I'm looking at you Twinkiemand!).

I would like to get the opinions of those attending the event on campground preferences to stay at. We will likely be guaranteed to all be placed together in a big group if we camp at the north location. The north location is much smaller, away from the Witchy Weekend festivities, has a lighted pavilion for gatherings, and is on a hill. The South park is much larger, has more amenities, and while hilly, it isn't as hilly as the North park. With Witchy weekend going on, the South Park's pavilion and facilities will be utilized for the events going on. If we are at the north park then we have our own pavilion to go to when not at Witchy weekend.

Here is a map. You can see the different colored sites for Delux and Premium (essentially a concrete pad requiring you to pay a small fee extra).


Pictures of the North park can be found at these links Branson Fall 2007 and Branson Spring 2008. I couldn't find pictures from our event at the South park in 2009, but that's because we were at Silver Dollar City the entire time!

Let me know your preferences, and I will discuss them with the park. I am going to stop in there tomorrow after work.

Hey Steve, change in plans for us. We are actually going to extend our stay and come down on Thursday night, but late, late arrival. We are also contemplating staying until Monday, just because we have some warranty issues with the rig that we have to let Airstream Springfield look at. So there you have it, we'll be all hands on deck !

Dunja

PS> I would like to stay where the majority of you all are for sure, that's the point of the rally right?! So I am going to go with the majority here, our earlier arrival may make this easier...

I called and told them I was with the Airstream rally. She charged my $118 for the two nights. I thought that was a little high but all camping places are different so I went with it. I hope we are all together!!

I think we really need to check out the pricing, she was going to charge me 92$ for two nights?
Perhaps that is the already discounted price?
See you there, I am really excited!

You will likely be seeing a refund on your expenses. Unless you are on the most expensive type of camping space. I don't even see a discount applied yet to that amount.

I will take care of all of that, so nobody worry about the rate!

Steve

I had been looking to attend this event for a long time, it seems sure that bad circumstances are not going to allow.

This would have been my first Airstream event. Maybe next year.

Well that's a bummer, but it seems inevitable that we always lose someone as we get close. Hope it isnt many more.

My preference is North - especially if we can all be together - I probably won't do as many of the activities so having our own pavillion would be my preference. Also because we are arriving later Friday night it would be easier to find a group of airstreams!

Steve,
Are they not going to be able to place us at least somewhat together?
How many have booked?
We have not reserved yet because of some uncertain situations that could cancel our plans!
Still hoping to come. But not sure.
