Yes, we'll be issuing a preliminary schedule as soon as possible. Right now all I can tell you is that there will be seminars, events, and door prizes every day.

You will not be able to do absolutely everything since we had to overlap a few things on the schedule, but you should be able to come close if you arrive by Tuesday June 1st at noon.

Here's what I can tell you right now. We have these seminars confirmed:

John Long: History of Bowlus trailers (a Bowlus will be on-site)
Dave Schumann/Tim Maxwell: (2 seminars) service demonstrations
Bert Gildart: (2 seminars) photography, "night of the grizzly"/national parks
Vic Smith: polishing
Ken Faber: Route 66
Michael Hold: European Airstreaming/Silver Swingers
Colin Hyde: Airstream restoration
James Webb: Zip-Dee maintenance
JJ Johnjulio: Sky-Med
Andy Thomson: hitching and towing
Bob Wheeler (Airstream president): happy hour talk
John Huttle (Airstream motorcoach division): happy hour talk
Forrest McClure: dynamic wheel balancing/tire pressure monitoring
Eleanor O'Dea: packing your Airstream kitchen

We have several other speakers and presentations pending as well. Those are just the scheduled speakers. Then there's the daily door prizes, movies at night, live bands in Jackson Center on Thurs-Sat nights, factory tours Tues-Friday, magic show & western roping show, architecture tour, barbecue, singles luncheon, Jackson Center Days, Swap Meet, and Open House. ... whew!

So, no, you probably won't be able to do it all. But you should definitely have fun trying!

Sure sounds like fun. We have registered a few weeks ago. Is there any way to see who all is signed up to attend? We have a 1986 345 motorhome. We wonder how many of us there will be.

An earlier post mentioned 83 registered as of March 20th. Looks like a few of us have RSVP'd at the following link that can be found under the Airstream Rally Calendar/Upcoming Rallies on the Main Page/Portal.

Tentative schedule now available!

I know a lot of people were waiting to see what's on the schedule at Alumapalooza, before deciding whether to go. Well, now is your chance! We've posted a tentative schedule on the official Alumapalooza website.

New speakers added this week (tentative):

Kristiana Spaulding: interior design
Sean & Kristy Michael (The Long Long Honeymoon)

We've gotten a commitment from Airstream for two factory tours on Thursday and Friday, so more of you can get a chance to see the factory while you are visiting. That's a total of six tours during Alumapalooza.

Actually, don't use the link in my previouse post to the exact schedule, since we'll be updating it a lot (and the link will change). Go to alumapalooza.com, scroll down to the bottom, and use the link on that page, for the latest version of the schedule.

I wanted to let my fellow attendees know that a commemorative, limited edition Alumapalooza print is available. And since I'll be at there myself - free delivery!

More speakers now confirmed for Alumapalooza:

Larry Huttle, Chairman of Airstream
Dale "Pee Wee" Schwamborn

We've also arranged factory tours twice a day on Thursday and Friday, too. We're almost up to 100 trailers and many more walk-in attendees!

We now have 105 trailers signed up!

We have room for you, but you have to go to alumapalooza.com to register.

Registration is closing on May 25th, and if you pay at the gate it will cost $10.00 more to get in.

Besides by pre-registering you get a nifty professioal printed badge with your name, if you pay at the gate it will be a hand written one with the Alumapalooza logo that people will have a hard time reading

Check the calendar, we ant to see you there. Yes that means you!

Problems with changing registration

Hey,

I am coming to you guys to find out if any one else has had this problem and what the fix is. I have been trying for several weeks to add a participant to my registration. I registered me just fine, then my husband decided he wanted to attend as well. Now, I can't get him registered. I consistently get an error message. I reported it as the error message instructed and got a pleasant email back. I still had problems a week later. I reported it again, got no response. I then tried to "bull" my way through and found that I had added several additional participants in my attempts to register and now have no way to remove them.

I am pretty computer savvy with internet registrations and, although, I may have made mistakes, I think this registration change process is unusually difficult. I would like to get my registration correct.

I am putting this on the forums for help because I have not had a response from the website and wonder if I am alone with this problem. If I am, then, whoops, it is me!

All the Best,
Caryl

Hi Caryl

Sorry to hear about this. This particular problem regarding adding attendees to a group has plagued us lately and we are waiting for the company that runs the registration system to fix it. Your queries went to them, not us, or we would have contacted you and helped you by now.

Please contact us at alumapalooza2010 at airstreamlife dot com with the names of the people you want to add, etc., or call 802-877-2900 extension 4 -- and we'll get you set up.

-- Rich

We are planning to go, but without our Airstream. I am looking for suggestions of where to stay. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks.
