I've done a quick look thru 17 pages of post and this post from Ken J indicates that there is still room somewhere? It's an event we've wanted to attend for some time and now the travel window is open and we'd go if there some guarantee of space, somewhere with other A/S'ers

And if things are too full, then we'll just have to plan for another year and go elsewhere this October.

Ken,
I am posting from the Labor Day rally in Williams. Having a great time. Could you give us an update on any open spots that we might have at this moment?

See post #230 - I still do not have final billing yet - been away for a few days - and I'm off for the rest of this week - so maybe - I would need checks like overnight if there is space....

What I need is definite commitments of folks who want to attend - have not heard from anyone....

Ken

Just saw this thread and am also wondering if there is still space left to join? We currently have reservations at the Balloon Fiesta RV facility from Oct. 7th through 12th. We would gladly change and am able to commit to join this rally with fellow Airstreams! Please advise - fingers crossed

Jerry and I need to cancel our reservation for the Fiesta. Unfortunately, work is interfering big time. That is good news for the pocketbook, but bad news for time off to travel. If it is possible for someone to take the reservation and reimburse us, that would be great.

Ken, let me know if there there is a way to have some one take our reservation. I am so sorry to have to do this--we were both ready to roll.

Ok folks - I can't promise I can do this last minute in 2009 - the balloon folks are fabulous to work with - soooo I've reserved several more spaces for about 1 week - they are holding our final billing for us - so PLEASE if you want to join us please let me know ASAP - I'm out of town tomorrow - Sunday, so you have about that much time to think about it when I check my mail on Monday.... I've heard that there are several out there that want to join us, so here is you opportunity to have the blast of your life...

Great news Ken. We were talking around the campfire (propane) about the event at the Williams 4CU rally and everyone agreed that this is something that should be on your Bucket List.

Caryl, that's awful! We were really looking forward to having another pair of Evanstonians there with us. Funny, it seems we can't meet up where we live 5 minutes apart, but we almost made it work 1000 miles away!

I know you'll be there in spirit though, and I'm sure you won't have trouble finding somebody to fill your spot.

Yup - this is the day - at the end of the day, we will no longer be able to accept any new reservations because we need to focus on finalizing our planning this great rally for the next few weeks - those of you who are joining us can expect a fabulous time! Expect to hear from us soon!

Registration is now closed for this rally - final count looks like 30 units - a 27% increase over last year! Pretty cool.

The planning committee is putting its final touches on this, expect to have a great time - if you are missing this year, you are missing the rally of a lifetime! Hope you can make it next year.

I will be sending a newsletter to attendees out in the next day or so, so please look for that as well as information on this forum.

Weather looks fantastic (easy to say now) for the mass take off on Sat morning - expecting tons of balloons with some new special shapes this year.

We will have lots of fun, lots of food and will be seeing some old friends as well as making some great new friends.

So stay tuned - less than 30 days!!!!!!!!

FCU ROCKS!

Ken J.

Newsletter #2 has been e-mailed to all who are participating - we do this because there are those who are not on this forum.

The summary version is we are meeting at Camping World, Chili cookoff on Fri night, various balloon and non-balloon events on Sat-Mon.

And - drum roll please - we now have official FCU shirts!

So we are looking forward to a fantastic time!

Ken J

Talking Chilli (chille)

Ken, RE: newsletter #2 - I don't think there is such a thing as a non-edible animal or creature, particularly when your talking chilli. Thats why the stuff was invented.

Thats what I was afraid of - in good chili, you can't really tell what's in it - and I've heard folks put some pretty crazy ummm stuff in it

But then I if you have to ask whats in it.... cooks secret

Hmmm, I see where early lift off is at or before dawn. So that means that there was a typo on listing the Happy Hour beginning at 4 pm - Methinks it should be 4 AM if we're gonna be in good humor at lift off.

Ya know the planners thought about a 4 AM happy hour, but we figured that after the 4 PM happy hour, we would not need one.... that is if (hummm you know who you are who were in a certain motorhome) we follow last year...
