2011 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta!

2011 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Rally is on! We will be camping beach front right on the grounds of the Balloon Fiesta. Since we are a large group, we get the best seats in the house. If you have never been before, this is a great opportunity to see this event close up - the balloons will be taking off yards from your front door. For more information log on to Welcome to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

This year will be particularly special as it’s the 40th Anniversary of Balloon Fiesta.

The dates are to arrive September 30 and leave the morning of Oct 4th. The cost is $341 which INCLUDES FREE (that alone would cost almost $200 if you were not camping with us) entry to all events for 2 people. The only thing we charge is $1 to cover some bank charges for handling the rally funds - which means you would pay the same if you were to stay there on your own.

Don’t miss the early morning Dawn Patrol where a dozen balloons light up the pre-dawn sky. Next up is Mass Ascension where you will see hundreds of balloons take to the sky. The best part is that you are not sitting in grandstands taking in the action from a distance but you are right on the field watching as balloon crews set up their balloons and take off. The evening brings more balloons and fireworks!

We have 90 spots reserved at this point - This event fills up fast and I need to know who is attending by mid March, and of the fee ($170.50) is due at that time (The other half is due sometime in July). After that point I can’t promise a spot although the past we have been able to accept later reservations – it just depends on how they fill up. At this point we have a fair number of pre-registrations, so don't wait.

A fresh water truck and pump out service is available, however there are no elec hookups. Generators are ok and solar works great.

This is the perfect family rally so bring the parents, grandparents, kids, pets and lets have a great time at this VERY popular and NOT TO MISS event! Don’t forget your camera!

Refund policy - the balloon fiesta folks have a strict policy of no refunds after September 1st. I also can’t promise full refunds up to that point – their policy is a $10 charge until July 15th and from July 15 – Aug 31st there is a 50% charge. We work well with the balloon fiesta folks and they have never charged us for refunds up to Sept 1st – after Sept 1st we know we can’t refund any money.

Attached is the sign up sheet – and please please write your e-mail clearly so I can read it because that’s how we will communicate with you and let you know whats going on prior to the fiesta – you will receive several updates as we get closer to Balloon Fiesta!

Ask anyone who has attended this great event before and they will tell you that you just cannot describe it – you just have to be there.

See you at Balloon Fiesta!

Does one (two) have to be members of 4CU? Are there hook-ups? When is the grey water service available; does it necesitate moving one's rig?

Ah - now I know which rally you are asking about - - - No there are no hookups - there are water and sewer trucks that come around pretty regular - and they come to you so you don't have to move. Pretty slick

No you do not have to be a member or the FCU - this is a buddy rally.

And........ ta da - you get the moring newpaper delivered right to your door - well at least to your tongue...

Brad S - are you going to bring your formally leaky trailer with you? Good decision - this is the year to be there - but then any year is good to be there....

Charlie - glad to see you coming back - kinda addictive isn't it?

Ken,

Mary & I mailed our check last week. Hopefully, it has arrived by now.

I've installed a gray tank in my '63 and bought a new Yamaha generator. We're ready!

Hi Ken

No Holly, our formally leaky trailer, will be far from done. We have a 2006 22' CCD that I remodeled a couple of years ago. We are looking forward to seeing some nice trailers when we come to visit.

I noticed that no pets are not allowed on the grounds. Are they allowed in the camping area?

Normal rules for pets in the camping area. On leash and pickup after them.

We will be there! The check is on its way. What a great time - Airstreams, Airstream people, and BALLOONS, BALLOONS, and more BALLOONS! (Not that I'm excited or anything.)
