Hello all,
We're gotten our confirmation from Ken that we are in the magic 100 group and are starting to plan our trip from Iowa in earnest now.
We are new to Airstreaming and this will be our first rally. I see from re-reading this entire thread that most people are staying at Enchanted Trails the night before. Does anyone know if there is space for 1 more with the group forming there? I was too late by phone tonight when I called Enchanted Trails, will try an email just in case.
Thanks,
Eileen

Balloon Fiesta is always a first rally for a number of folks - and they walk/drive away having a GREAT time!

Call Vicki at Enchanted Trails and let her know you are with the Airstream group - hopefully she can fit you in...........

Us too (our first Airstream and our first rally)! I hope we can manage to seek you out - we'll be the 25' with the blue Ellie Mae on the back window come find us, there's only a hundred to choose from

Coming in from Denver the night before (29th), we're going to stay at the KOA in Las Vegas NM, Santa Fe is about $10 more - if you don't have luck with Enchanted Trails.

Wendy - as in Jim and ...

Hello, I talked to Vicki this morning and luck was with us again--we have one of the last spots at Enchanted Trails for 29Sep.
Looking forward to meeting as many of you as we can and connecting some forum names to faces.
I'm guessing we might be the only ones in the group with Iowa license plates.

Here's a bit of Iowa balloon trivia: the National Hot Air Balloon Championships were held in Indianola, IA from 1971-1988.

I went to one and it was very impressive, though surely much smaller than what we'll see in Albuquerque at the Fiesta, and we certainly didn't get to stay right next to the launch field.
See you soon-
Eileen

Well because the Balloon Folks like us so much - they are giving us some of their reserve sites, so if you are interested in joining us, we have a few spaces available.

We really appreciate these folks - if you were to call the fiesta folks, they will tell you they are full - so those of you attending, be sure to thank any of the staff on the Fiesta grounds. So these are the only spots available.

We have confirmed Camping World as our meeting place on 9/30 - it is important you arrive there by noon at the latest - we will have over 100 trailers to get to the fiesta park all about the same time - don't try this at home we ARE professionals

We are talking to the parking folks and getting that all dialed in, so we will let you know how that shakes out.

Right after Labor Day Weekend, we will be sending regular updates and info to all attendees - this event is going to be incredible!!

Ken,
We won't be able to attend, and it's not because we don't want to...you host an exceptional rally, and our regret is that Mr. finance will not allow us this venture...I wish all of you well, and hope you will hoist one for us...TTQ is an honor not taken lightly, and I thank you for the gift...m

I second Ken's mention of the outstanding Parking Staff in post #257. We really DO appreciate them and we'll let them all know personally when we host a 100 Airstream strong Thank You potluck party to recognize their efforts! Put on your thinking caps and pull out that favorite appetizer, salad or entree dish to share. More info at the Fiesta!

We hit the magic 100 Airstreams! What a great way to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this International Balloon Fiesta. Tired of balloons....is that possible?! The International Balloon Museum is just steps away; don't miss Old Town Albuquerque; meet and greet Airstreamers from across the country! Come ready to enjoy this popular rally which has grown from a few dozen, to 100 Airstreams in just a few short years!

Hey, Ken - since this is such a large gathering of Airstreams, is there any chance of the factory pitching in some trinkets? If they will, I'd be glad to swing through on my way West.

Pat

Generators at Balloon Fiesta?

What are the guidelines for using generators at the Balloon Fiesta Rally? Is generator useage (a) condoned, (b) loved, (c) hated, (d) tolerated by the members of the Four Corners Unit? Or, (e) all of the above?

Yes, yes yes and yes - most of us have generators

They must be off by 10pm....

We do have the generator cop in our group and if she catches you will a generator that is not approved by her - you will be marched down to the Honda dealer on site and you will have a new generator........
