Ken will be sending out more information the time to the event gets closer.

Arrival date is the 30th and that morning we should be gathered most likely at Camping World on I-40 west of Albuquerque. From there we break into smaller groups to caravan into the Fiesta grounds. Vicki's place (Enchanted Trails) would be the perfect location to spent a night or two before the rally since it is right next to Camping World and it is a great place to stay.

We are there for the first 4 days of the Fiesta, other groups come later and stay for the end of the Fiesta. That is why we have to be out of the area on our last morning. There is always another group taking our place.

Richard is correct as alway - the only thing I would add is Vickie has a block reserved for us - but like everything Balloon Fiesta, she needs to know asap - she told me the Sisters on the Fly have reserved a bunch of spots also - so we will all be getting to know each other well as we all fit into Enchanted Trails. I'll check with her next weekend as well and see how we are doing with reservations.

Yeee Hawww!!! This is a going to be another great time!

Ken, I just tried Vicki's website (www.enchantedtrails.com). The links are not showing in an IE8 browser, but they do show in Firefox. I've written her about it.

Yeah, I only reported it because most folks use IE, and if her links are not functioning, then she can't be contacted via the website. (She doesn't have contact info on her main page.)

When should we make reservations for Enchanted Trails? Do we do this through you or them?

Also when we will be getting confirmation of registration for the Ballon Fiesta?

We're comming to albuquerque! Yay!!!

Howdy Ken:

I've been wrestling w/ this rally for some time. We had already verbally committed to another rally, but for some reason I can't get this one out of my mind, and I still haven't heard from my employer re: vacation request for additional time off for this Albuquerque Rally (the other rally was much shorter, and very close). HOWEVER, I'm throwing caution to the wind and signing up!! . We couldn't decide what to do for our 25th. anniversary, so this is how we will be celebrating! (albeit a little late).

Considering today is 3/13, Post #36 said he paid via electronic check, how do I do that? (We really want to be there!) However if I don't get (see) a response from you before tomorrow - end of day, then I will send it snail mail, REGARDLESS, count us in, BAR NONE!

Additionally, as stated before, since we are coming from quite a distance....(traveling across I40 if anyone want's to join us?), we might as well take advantage of the full experience, I questioned about staying for the full event (past your rally) and you stated you could help us arrange a longer stay. Could you send us info (PM me if necessary?) on what we need to do to make that happen? Also, we may be bringing along one of our older children (almost 23). I haven't seen any info about a third person charge.

Hope this isn't a problem , and thanks for all your help.

Regards, Terry.

Gary - we only plan balloon fiesta - so if you want to come the night before, you will need to make arrangements - we do have a block of sites reserved at Enchanted Trails so call them directly - I'll be sending confirmations via e-mail sometime after this week -

Terry - I don't think you will regret this decision - just send snail mail and you are fine - we have folks coming from all over the US and have had folks from Canada - so hopefully someone will chime in here and let you know they are coming your way - yes you can stay longer, but they will move you from our spot because they have other groups coming in - which is fine because they are all good spots - I'll need to put you in touch with the fiesta folks and have you make those reservations directly. We have had others stay longer over the years - so not a problem. Just remember this is dry camping, so plan on using the pump out folks for water and dumping - again not a problem - may need a generator or solar... You can bring as many folks as will fit in your trailer or car or ground around your trailer and car - there is no extra charge for us, you will get two passes that you can share or you can always buy more at the gate when you get there. Let me know if there is anything we can do to make this happen for you.

This must be the year for anniversaries - its the 40th for balloon fiesta and we have a number of folks coming this year to celebrate anniversaries! Pretty cool!

Couple of reminders....

This is a GREAT rally for families, family reunions, units traveling together, friends traveling together and..... Anniversaries - - - - we will do our best to make sure groups/families and friends are parked together - two things are required for this rally - - - - - - - - lots of smiles and a camera! The organizing committees loves to see all young and young at heart faces the first time they see 750+ balloons go up at one time - it is a real treat for us!

Let us know how we can make this happen for you!
