    That is right, once AGAIN we will be setting up and then camping this night (as we have the past several years…) feel free to join us for a laid back time of just hanging out by the fire. There is NO extra charge. Potties should be there also.

    Friday, Oct 13th, 2017
    2:00pm The grounds will officially open for people to start arriving. be sure to come early to get your favorite spot.
    6:00pm there will be a FREE HOT DOG and BURGER FEED sponsored by AAA / RT 66 AC VW Club !!! Yep… FREE FOOD again this year! So get in line and stuff your face! We will also have potluck items to eat so feel free to bring a dish if you want or just show up and eat!

    The rest of the evening will consist of good times around the campfire. There usually is a great fireworks show at the Balloon Park we can see from the site!!

    2pm The Raffle Starts!!!

    Sat night:
    Those that have a long trip home are welcome to stay the night and leave bright and early Sunday morning.

    Sunday, Oct 15, 2017 We must be OFF the church property by 7:00 am , As every year we have to pack it up and leave due to the church having services that day and they need the parking area. Those dragging a bit that morning have to at least move to the far north east corner of the lot..

    That is about it! Keep in mind ….
    October in New Mexico can be interesting weather wise. Hot days and chilly nights are not uncommon. Be prepared for weather changes. Bring sunscreen but don’t forget your jacket. Nights can dip into the low 40’s or even 30’s! If campfires are your thing, please bring your own firewood, and all fires must be above ground and contained (fire pits, portable fireplaces, smudge pots…etc). There will be metal trash cans for all ashes. please do not leave your ash on the parking lot. if you need a hand dumping your fire pit, let someone know.

    This show is all about having fun, hanging out with friends, and raising money for good causes. There are, however, a few rules.

    No glass containers.
    No animals off leash or in the show area.
    If you bring animals, please control them, and clean up after them.
    Please be mindful of other people, and don’t impede their good time.
    No on-ground fires. Use Drums and put your ashes in the metal trash cans.
    Quiet time from 10pm – 6am.

    Although everyone is welcome to attend, we reserve the right to remove anyone from the campout at any time (with good cause) without a refund. Please understand this is to help keep the event fun and keep it going for next year.

    For more Info you can visit our Facebook page:
    Or our web site http://aaavwclub.com
    Please go to Busses and Balloons Thread.
    This event coincides with the International Balloon Fiesta, and could make for a great trip overall. If you’ve never been it’s worth going to for sure!
    Hope to see you all there! DRIVE SAFE!!!
