Luigi and others,

Although it appears there was talk of the rally getting as many as 125 spaces, the original allotment was right around 100. This event is growing fast and this year spaces got filled very fast. Last year there were still openings into summer.

Ken has posted that he is trying to get more spaces opened for us and has reported on that as yet because he does have a life other than this rally. Last I saw he was holding on to applications for spaces as the festival organizers hadn't released more spaces. I don't think I saw any talk of 150 spaces.

You'll just have to be patient and if you want to try to get a space, send the stuff into Ken.

I hope I got this right since there seems to be confusion of what is available.

Gene

This has truly become one of the most popular events for Airstreamers and should be on your Bucket List! We've got our fingers crossed and are hoping the Fiesta folks throw a few more spots our way. Your best bet is to complete the form, attach your check, and send it to Ken. He will take names/wait list based on post mark! Your check WILL NOT be cashed unless you are booked into the rally.

Thank you, I appreciate the response. I will move on and make other arrangements for this event. Maybe in the years to come I can find a way to join in the fun. Patience usually works for those that wait. Hope to see many of you there. Travel safe shiny side up.

I don't know if you have been able to contact Ken J yet ... if not, keep trying... he is the one who can let you know for sure. If you can't reach him through the Forums, try emailing him at fourcornersunit@hotmail.com ...

Good luck!

I'm here - kinda - we had the annual Airstream Restoration Rally going on this past weekend which takes up a lot of my time - I'll get to all my e-mails and PM's as soon as I can....

I'm not sure where we are for spots - the balloon folks are giving us more than the 105 they orginally gave us, but not sure exactly how many - if its as I understand I may still have a few spots after I fill the waiting list first. It appears we wil have 125 spots - maybe more.

So as we have been saying - if you want to attend, send your deposit and coupon and we won't cash the check unless you have a spot and we will notify you as such.
Also we always have cancellations.

So stay tuned - with the restoration rally behind us, we can focus on Balloon Fiesta!

OK folks - this is where we are.... I talked to the balloon folks this morning and they are telling me to hold off on any addtional spaces - they are having a meeting on 7/1 and will decide at that time if we can have more spaces - so as of right now we are full - if you want to try to get a space, I suggest you send your deposit, we will hold it and if we get more spaces will release as of postmark date

Another update - I just talked to the balloon folks, and we are going to arrange a meeting for more spaces - those of us on the organizing committee as well as the parking folks know of more spaces where we could put folks - I my view this is win win - it provides more revenue for the fiesta folks and gets us spaces. So somewhere around 7/1 I plan to meet with them - keep your fingers crossed I can get more spaces - if not we will be limited to cancellations only - we currently have about 20 on the waiting list.

The latest news is the weather is looking great for launch, and the balloons are on schedule. By now everyone should have sent or is sending there final payment for the fiesta - I have a stack of checks I need to go through and will confirm with everyone when I go through them - remember the August 31st deadline. At this point we have not been able to secure any addtional spots - not for lack of trying.

Hi from GA/AZ. . . OK, I have to admit I'm getting a little nervous. Sent check a month ago and it hasn't cleared the bank, so I'm (still) taking it on faith that we'll get acceptance/particulars soon. It's kind of a big deal trip for us, including bringing the AS to it's new home in AZ after, so forgive the nerves please . Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone in ABQ, regards, Craig

I think they're waiting for the 31 August deadline and processing it all in bulk. As long as it's your 2nd check and not the 1st it should be fine, Ken J said he has a big stack to process. My 2nd check hasn't been cashed yet either.

Yea mine hasn't been cashed either - That is my plan this weekend to get all the checks ready for deposit and I'll update everyone.... yes I'm a little behind on this, had had too great of a summer - but as I said I'll catch up on this over the weekend.

I'm still waiting - very patiently - to hear if we can get more spots - I'll know for sure next week as I know everyone needs to make their plans - this year is unusual as we have only one cancelation so far - we normally get several

We have about 30 or so folks on the waiting list - so next year if you want to attend, you really need to let us know asap - I'm going to once again try to get more spaces

Ken:

Margie had back surgery in Jun. It appears that she has not recovered well enough to make the drive. So we, unfortunately, will need to cancel our fourth trip to the 4CU Fiesta. Don't have to much fun without us.
