Rally Update

sorry I'm late putting up the info. The rally is on but the parking space is still up in the air (no pun intended). When I went to confirm everthing a month or so ago, the new president of the skydiving association, told me they could not park more than on RV at a time there. The "neighbors" across the field have been complaing and trying to shut them down for years. (typical for Genneral Aviation Airports). They are afraid that with 10 RVs there, the people will call out the Sherriff and make a big ruckus
My bottom line backup is the Moose Lodge in Rockville, CT about 7 miles away, that's available for sure but tight parking......but you can walk over and be my guest at the "social quarters".
We were talking to the Town of Ellington about a field they use for various activites but I can't seem to get an answer. Can't believe I did not think of this until this morning, The Four Town Fairgrounds in Ellington, should be able to get 30amp and water there with no parking issues about 4 miles away.
I'd like to hear from those that are coming to get an approx count. I will post as soon as the site is confirmed, most likely if there is a parking charge (fairgrounds) you can just pay when you get there.
Please PM me here at Airforums so I can keep all the responses together for the count.
Thanks
Dan

ok we're all set, we are dry camping at the Four Town Fairgrounds, confirming price tomorrow, but I think about 10 bucks a night per trailer. only 3 miles away from Airport.
Also, fyi, within 1/2 mile of the airport are a large Harley Davidson Dealer and a Classic Car Showroom for your enjoyment. I'll confirm the price tomorrow and post.
also, the chicken roast at the jumpsite is 5 bucks a person, BYOB. I would like to give them a count a few days before so please let me know if your participating in the chicken roast, and if your jumping.
Thanks
Dan

unfortunately this years skydiving rally has been cancelled. Several people from out of state that were coming either are not or have not responded to me. The main cause, being the fact that we lost our parking at the site, had a hard time finding another one, and no sign up flyers being published.
Luckily I've found another much better site in Danielson CT for next year, also the tandem jump fee is only 185.00
SKYDIVING CT RI MA - 1860 774 5867
