For many years the SKP Boomers BOF have hosted a rally at the ABQ Balloon Fiesta and since there is NOT going to be a Balloon Fiesta HOP this year, we have decided to open up our registration for 2012. We have 40 spaces pre-reserved for our 12-night rally starting Oct. 3 and running until the day after Fiesta ends, Oct. 15 (+/- depending on your dates). We dry-camp in the RV Standard parking area, directly along the main landing zone, and the cost is only $270 (includes discounts for coming in early and staying more than 9-days). We also assist folks in learning how to "crew" and get you assigned to balloon pilots so you can earn a free entry to all events during Fiesta. We also have daily Happy Hours, a Potluck, and other activities.

To get further information on how to register for the "2012 Balloons and Boomers" (and others) rally, send your email address to: abq_boomers_2012@yahoo.com

We did the balloon feista this past year with Cool Judy and the Boomers and had a blast! Marcia chose to help crew and enjoyed it very much. She was even lucky enough to get a ride in one of the balloons. I on the other hand stayed in bed until the balloons started landing right in front of the rig. It was an awesome sight seeing balloons float across the top of the rig and watching some of them landing only yards away from our rig. If we were going to be on that side of the world this year we would be signing up for sure.

Thanks Joe for the endorsement! We had 46 rigs with us last year. I think the SKP HOP (and other club caravans) have priced themselves out of the market for just a 4 or 5 day event. Weather can play havoc for rallys that only cover one weekend. We like to say, "come early, stay late and see it all!"

Les & Susie, Did you ever decide if you were coming this year? I do not have you currently registered to be with the Boomers. I have space, just let me know ASAP. The Fiesta RV Office is asking me to confirm my rig count.
