Ken,

Sammie and I would like to Attend. I'll PM for details. Never boon-docked, never rallied, never been out of Texas with either of our Airstreams and have never seen a balloon up close. So needless to say, we're game for a little adventure. Count us in...

Ken,

I was just looking at the NM Unit page for the Balloon Fiesta and it says "Dont miss getting up early Saturday morning (5:00 AM) to carpool to balloon field...". Is the 4CU rally at a different location or is this the same rally? I'm assuming they are in a different location, since their rally fee is substantially less ($215 for two people for 1-5 Oct).

I also saw that the Region 11 Rally in Gallup is 6-11 October. Is there some coordination between the [two] Balloon rallies and the Gallup rally for a caravan? Are many of the Balloon attendees going to the Region 11 rally?

Zep

There are two different rallies in two different locations. The NM rally is being held at the NM Fair Grounds which is downtown Albuquerque and the FCU Rally is being held on the grounds of the Fiesta Park.

I don't know of any plans for a caravan to Gallup, but I will get in contact with the other group and see if we can put something together.

Jan and I will be attending the R-11 Rally.

Thaks, Richard. Where does the NM Unit Rally park? Not that I'm thinking of changing rallies, just curious about the exact location.

Great post Richard! Seeing that foot bridge onto the field makes it seem like we were there yesterday. Our Airstream was about 150 feet from the bridge.

Dorothy and I will be attending the Region 11 Rally after the Balloon Fiesta. If there is to be a caravan we will join in.

The Fairgrounds are bounded by San Pedro on the West, Central on the South, Louisiana on the East and Lomas on the North. Probably 8 mi southeast of the Fiesta site as the crow flys.

HOLY COW - $215 to stay at the fair grounds and be bused to the balloon fiesta - now I understand why our numbers are so high this year - I wonder if that covers admission to events - wait till you get up in the morning and see the traffic lines coming into the event - 8 miles does not sound like a lot - even with no traffic you are a good 20 - 25 minutes to the fiesta field.

We still have a few spots left - like less than 5 at the moment - given that I'm being asked about this daily I'm going to re-group a bit and see if we can take more - I reserved 70, talking to the balloon folks, we can expand that a bit - they really like us because we are an easy group to work with, in that we all arrive at the same time.

Does this mean same day, same hour, or same minute?

We all arrive at the same time, so they can get us all parked at once - it is difficult for them to park large groups if everyone does not show up at the same time - our plan this year, since we are so large is all meet somewhat early in the day, then we will leave in groups of 10 about 10-15 minutes apart, that way while they are parking the first group, then the next group will be arriving - we will be sending details later - later will be after labor day when the parking crew arrives in town and we sort the details. We will get 70+ trailers parking within about an hour. Its a site to see!

Once parked you can come and go as you like.
