Carolina BalloonFest 2020 Rally

Please join members of the Southeastern Camping, Carolinas, South Carolina Coastal, Piedmont NC, Florida, and other Airstream Clubs from Region 3 and beyond for the Carolina BalloonFest Rally in Statesville, NC October 16-18, 2020. We will have parking convenient to the entrance to the festival grounds.

The schedule is available at: http://www.carolinaballoonfest.com/. New this year there is a password-controlled page for us to sign up and pay online at. Due to privacy restrictions from the festival, please e-mail me at awaschka@bellsouth.net with your unit affiliation and I will put you on the list and e-mail you the URL and password.

Download the application from the portal, fill it out, pay online and send in the application or send in the application with a check. The application includes a privacy release allowing the festival to release names of those signing up to the rally organizers (me) so that I can know who has signed up. There will also be (only on the password-protected page for us) a listing of those who have signed up so that members can see who is coming.

We will have access to sign up before the general public. In order to guarantee a space with the club, our applications and deposits will have to be received by the end of May. After that the festival, as last year, will start assigning spaces with WBAC starting at space 1 and the general public starting at the other end (whatever that may be, this year it was 75).

This will be a no-frills rally with no rally fee. We attempt to plan our happy hours and meals around the festival events which requires some flexibility as the event timing is dictated by weather conditions.

Note:
1. Reservations are not refundable, but the festival has committed to support transfer of a reservation to another person as needed.
2. This is boondock-style camping. Arrive full of water, batteries charged, and holding tanks empty!
3. Generators are allowed and pets are OK in the camping area.
4. There will be food trucks on site, but they have been crowded in the past. Exit and re-entry are possible, but not convenient, so best plan to bring enough food and drink for the rally.

Our club rally schedule shows it is and our officers have been keeping the cancellations current. That is not to say things won't change by then....

Hi Peter et. al. I corresponded with the Festival Director about a month ago. He had been in contact with local health officials and was confident the Festival would go on as scheduled. That said, with Covid-19, who knows what the future may bring. Earlier this week the pay on line feature was "temporarily not available" on the web site. I haven't checked in the last few days to see if it is back. They should be getting close to letting non-airstreams sign up.

Sorry Peter. I posted notices everywhere else but I forgot about the thread on here. It was cancelled due to the uncertainty regarding the pandemic. Planning in work for the 2121 festival and may include new site with better access and more RV sites.
