Yes, we recommend the Hampton Inn in Sidney. You can get a special Alumapalooza rate (discounted to $75 per night). Mention code "AIR". A number of attendees will be staying at the Hampton, so car pooling to/from the event will be possible.

Be sure to register as a "walk-in" on the Alumapalooza website beforehand, so we can get an accurate count for dinner, swag bags, etc. (Registration at the gate is possible but will cost an additional $10 per person.)

Red face Come and stay at our Hampton Inn

We would love to have you as our guest at Hampton Inn, Sidney, Ohio! We are offering a special Airstream rate of $75.00 plus tax per night. This is lower that AAA or AARP. We offer our "On the House hot breakfast bar" served daily from 6-10 am; free wireless; all rooms have microwaves and refrigerators; heated indoor pool and a exercise room. There is also a guest lundry on the 3rd floor. We are hoping that attendees of Alumapalooza will gather here and share stories as well as "carpool" to the event. It should be a great time for all!

Anyone gathering and staying at Poor Farmers Campground or nearby campgrounds and attending the Jackson Center festivities and then the Open House of Alumapalooza? I am considering going on a "shoestring" budget... I would love to see the Long Long Honeymoon speakers, Sean and Kristy and hopefully buy their new release of their video shorts on DVD then!!!

I can't answer your question about who's staying in that particular campground, but I can tell you that we currently have 23 people signed up as "walk-in" attendees, so there might be a few who are camping off-site. I think most of them are staying at the Hampton Inn.

I believe Sean told me that they will have DVDs for sale at Alumapalooza. They should be interesting!

Exclamation Photography review at Alumapalooza

Here's a note from Bert Gildart to all attendees of Alumpalooza:


Folks who will be attending my seminar (Bert Gildart’s Photo Seminar at Alumapalooza this June in Ohio) can help greatly by submitting one or two of your best images.


This is not for the weak of heart, as I’ll be criticizing and otherwise evaluating your images as they might work for publication and other forms of public viewing. Could be I’ll using the same terminology on your slides that editors have used on my work. “Bert,” said Joan Tapper at National Geographic Traveler, “this works, but this stinks.” Now I’ll be in the editor seat and I will be blunt – all in the interest, however, of good fun and in advancement of your skills -- and mine!

Prior to the seminar I will be evaluating all submitted images for composition and other esoteric considerations such as the “WOW” factor. Though I can’t promise to use all those submitted, (after all I need time to show examples of my work) I will use what I can fit into the allotted time. Most likely that will be 10 to 20 images.

What we need are good images that you’ve sized for proper viewing on our digital projector. Send one or two images to me at 1676 Riverside Road, Bigfork, Montana 59911 on disk (not as an email attachment!) and size them to 100 dpi with the long dimension at 1200 pixels. If you have any questions, you may certainly contact me, and that’s best done through email (bertgil@cyberport.net.)

If I get enough submissions, this should provide for a healthy exchange of ideas.





------------------

Rich when does the parking at the factory start? If people come early is there a place to "gather"?
I understand the Factory campground is for Service Customers and not Rally attendees.

Good question!

Everyone should plan to arrive at the factory on the day they chose when they registered (i.e., if you registered for 5 days you can arrive Tuesday, if you registered for 4 days you should arrive Wednesday, and if you registered for 3 days you should arrive Thursday).

If you arrive at Alumapalooza earlier than you paid for, it's not a problem but we'll charge you the difference ($30 per day) on the spot.

If you wish to arrive before Tuesday, check with WBCCI. Cindy Reed has told us that they will attempt to accommodate early arrivals at WBCCI headquarters at 803 E Pike St. Those will be "overnight parking" spots, with no hookups. Space at WBCCI is limited, so if you plan to take advantage of this offer, please contact WBCCI by phone or email to let them know. Phone # at WBCCI is 937-596-5211.

Need Shirts

OK, I registered on the website, but I couldn't see where to order shirts. I thought that was on the registration. Did I do something wrong? Oh no, is it too late to get shirts???

Thanks
Kaye

Not too late to order shirts yet, but it will be soon! We have to place the order by May 10. If you are attending Alumapalooza and you are already registered, just shoot us a note and we'll add whatever you want to your registration. Be sure to tell the sizes of the shirts you want (M, L, XL, XXL).

If you aren't attending, you can order Alumapalooza shirts on our store website and they will be shipped to you in June.

If you've missed the deadline, check with us at Alumapalooza. We should have a few extras on hand, but I can't guarantee every size.

Last chance!

Alumapalooza registration closes May 25! It looks like we're going to have a great week. We've got 112 trailers signed up so far, about 260 people, and 22 presentations scheduled to keep you busy.

When you arrive, just self-park in the appropriate section (blue=electric, orange=generator). You can pick up your registration materials/goody bag either as you pull in or at Happy Hour (4 pm daily under the big tent).

You can arrive without a registration but it will cost $10 extra "at the door."

The full event program will be posted online in a week or two.

See you there!
