Thanks. Just made a reservation @ Enchanted Trails. $51 for a full hook up site. Their website says $32 but they raise the rates for Balloon Fiesta.

Did you reserve for just October 03? We are thinking of doing the same

Edit - Just called and also made a reservation but for October 02 and 03 (full hookups) Quoted 48.95 per night

We reserved for Thursday night October 2. The rally begins on Friday the 3rd, so double check that! And yes, it was $48.95 plus tax.

Yes - Enchanted Trails is where we reserve a block of sites each year for those needing a place to camp the night before - you will have lots of Airstream company !

Okay it official - I'm totally screwed up! I read in an earlier post (page#1) from Ken saying the rally is October 04 - 07 I just assumed with the rally starting on the 4th that we would be moving into the grounds that morning. Hence I made the reservation at Enchanted Trails for the 2nd and 3rd. Will now need to call them back and change my reservation to the 1st and 2nd. Thanks for the heads-up! Sure hope others are not making the same mistake.

Cheers
Doug

Sorry about that - the reservation form has the schedule on it - we will move on to the field Friday morning between 9 and noon....... you will be amazed how we get 200 Airstreams set up and parked in less than 3 hours We do send out all kinds of info late summer to explain all this

Should I call them back and tell them to put me with the "airstream block?" Or maybe that block hasn't even been reserved yet..???

I'm wondering the same? Mind you, I think they already think I'm nuts with the amount of times I called them today.....

We stayed at American which is very nice and clean w a laundry and a break room w continental breakfast. there were many Airstreams there too.

We showered in our Airstream every nice. Navy showers..no problems at all. There is a multi stall bathroom trailer on the grounds w very nice facilities behind the vendors tents.

Ken does a great job putting this together and be assured all your questions will have answers. This group gets the best location on the grounds for the event. Ken is right, they do a fabulous job moving 200 rigs into the event area. We were all moved and set up very quickly; it is very well organized. We were sad when it ended last year and definitely will go again.

No need to call ET - we do not get any sort of special rate - ET takes incredible care of us and do everything they can to accommodate us - during Balloon Fiesta and other times as well - so even if there rate is a little higher than across the street - which is actually across the freeway - we encourage everyone to stay there - not to mention we have many in this event already staying there so you will have lots of Airstream company

I did look up the sheet music for Up Up and Away, and it's not super easy. So, if this is going to happen, we need to find an easier song.

Anybody got any song ideas? Anybody else bringing a band instrument? If not, then don't complain when you have to listen to a bassoon and a flute play Mary Had A Little Lamb for hours on end. (OK, I'm a wee bit more advanced than that)!!!
Hi Weirdstuff--sounds like a pretty good band: flute (high), clarinet (middle--my husband), and bassoon (low). What more do we need?!

I can bring music for a clarinet-bassoon duet by Beethoven; in previous performances, whoever of us finishes first is the winner--husband usually wins--but we could make it a three-way race if you can transpose on the fly! I'm not sure though that any attendees would rather hear us laughing like idiots over mangled Beethoven rather than Mary Had a Little Lamb ad infinitum....

And bassoon and flute go very well together, kind of exotic and Eastern-sounding, don't they start "Bacchanale" (sp?) from "Samson and Delilah"?

We're on the wait list but making plans and hoping like crazy.

Vivian

I'm sorry to say that it looks like we won't be attending after all. The good news is that someone can take our place!

Do I need to do anything more official than this to withdraw and request a refund?

Thanks!
