9 a.m.: AAA / RT66 booth will start selling Raffle tickets and event T-shirts, we will also have some kids going around selling raffle tickets please help us raise money for the Storehouse Food Bank. Tickets are only 50 cents each and our profits go to this Charity. The club has raised over $2,500 the past three years for the Road Runner Food bank, and so letís continues this great tradition by helping this new Charity.

12pm ALL votes in for awards to the AAA / RT66 booth for counting, vote for your favorite and see who wins!

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.

PLEASE READ:
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!

My son and I are making plans to head down this year. Looks like a good time!

Question about the balloon park and activities. Is this walking distance from the camp out?

*** Just noticed it's about 4 miles away. Thanks!

There is a bus shuttle you can get to, that's easy enough And it will put you on balloon fiesta park. Very easy and fun, that's how most people do it cause of traffic.
We will help you. The balloon glows at night are super cool.

Very cool, I appreciate it.

I was just accepted to the FB group a little bit ago so I think I'll ask further questions there since this is a sticky.

Any room for non-VW bus campers? We have some friends in a little Casita trailer who might want to join us (he sold his splittie!)

Ok so now Iím being told if itís as small as a bus they can bring it in and leave the tow vehicle on the road. We are trying to keep it all Busses or Vwís generally in there. If itís a dual axel or larger, they will need to make other arrangements.

Is the Yuma AZ group going this year? If yes and y'all come through Springerville on US 60 we'd like to hookup and caravan with you.
