Evening all,

I spoke with the park today shortly before Sams had posted he made his reservation. With Sam, we only have 5 people officially registered for this event. I guess some people have signed up on the "Sign Up" page, but not called the park. The park is not holding these sites for us any longer as I initially told them we would expect 20 trailers. This leaves about 20 spots open to the public to book for the event weekend. It goes without saying that if you are the least bit interested in attending the event, you need to call and book a spot. The park will give a full refund up to seven days before if you cannot make it.

With the group not meeting the required 20, we were offered 10% off. I truly hope more folks are able to join up in the next 4 weeks, but it appears many people are just unable to make it.

It sounds like people need to reserve their spots! It's killing me that we won't make it this year and Air Midwest is always a fun rally so get your reservations while you can.

I just received the "Witchy Weekend" festivities information. All of these activities are free to those camping that weekend. Not sure how many of you are bringing kids, but I know my son and Kani's grand kids will want to partake in them.

So we have never attended an airstream rally but we are thinking of attending this one. Are you still open for sign up and what do I need to do? Thanks.

You will definitely make it there before us. I just found out my son is off school the 24th, and I have requested the entire day off. If that is allowed then we will drive down on Thursday evening.

Only a few spots left folks...get em while you can.

Steve

Danielle and I certainly enjoyed the AIR Midwest spring rally we attended in 2013. We hope to make it out your way again and spring 2015 is looking good for us. We'll keep an eye on this thread to see if/when the spring event is announced.

Less than three weeks to go. Weather has been cooling off quite a bit and we are looking forward to the warmth of the campfires to be had at the rally.

Smile Fall MO rally

Hi everyone, is it too late to sign up for this rally? While I am kind of late in the game to notice, this is the weekend we were going to take our Silver Girl out once more for this year. We are fairly new to the Midwest, live at Fort Riley KS and since we are military our weekends off aren't quite as predictable as we prefer, so short term decisions have often to be made. We are not members in the club, do we have to be to be at the rally? I would love to hear from you!

Twinkiemand, it's never too late to sign up for the rally as long as space is available.

I believe Soldiermedic is the host and he has the right URL info for you to make your reservation and join in the fun.

Unfortunately we are on our way to Lake Catharine State Park and will miss you.

I grew up in Jct City (of which I don't necessarily lay claim to… :-) but have lived in Branson for the past 28 years.

Hi there!

I booked a site from the 24th through the 26th and it's our first rally!! So excited to join you guys! Yeah Riley is ok, could be worst lol. So i booked at Compton Ridge campground, is that ok? The only thing is she wasn't sure on the price, wasn't that already previously agreed on? She said we'd know the final total when we get there. Funny thing was too that I first called to make sure that there was space and she quoted me 40$ minus 10% group discount and then when I called to book she said it was 60? I'm confused may call them again.

Originally when the event was booked, we were supposed to get a group rate if we had 20 trailers. The weekend of the event is one of their "Witchy Weekends" that is considered a holiday, and is never discounted. Because of hosting 4 previous events at the campground, they made the group requirement 20 trailers because of all of the additional activities they include for the weekend (See the flyer posted earlier in this thread). A couple of weeks ago, the park called and offered me 10% off the Holiday rate if we could not get the 20 trailers for the event. I probably need to call Rene at the park to see where we are at, but I don't think we are at 20 yet. As far as the rate you were quoted, here is what I think is going on. The park has many different types of sites. Primitive, fully paved, etc. Better sites are a higher cost per night. Perhaps you got one of the nicer places to park. I don't even think the park has grouped us together since call ins to book were sporadic.

Im going to cal now to see what is going on. As long as you told them you were with the Airstream event then it should be okay.

Steve

Hey Steve,

yes I told them, I spoke to Miranda. I was kind of in a rush and not able to really ask and just took her word. I would hope that we are all together sort of, because if at an Airstream rally you wanna be with Airstreamers lol...
