Vintage Birds Chapter Rally
Red River, New Mexico
Road Runner RV Resort
1371 E Main St.
Red River, NM 87558
Arrive at Road Runner campgrounds in Red River, NM on Wednesday October 2, 2019.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday will have planned activities to be determined and finalized at later date, but most likely Thursday night will be open with Friday and Saturday nights being either a catered or pot luck dinner for one night each.
It is Octoberfest weekend in Red River during our rally with days being open for attending whatever events are happening. It is my intention to plan on some sort of morning coffee/breakfasts on Thursday-Sunday morning, day of departure.
Keeping in mind that the Albuquerque Balloon Fest will be October 5-13, 2019. It is a must see for anyone who has never seen 500, or more, very colorful hot air balloons ascend virtually simultaneously . It is the ideal time, if you have never been in a balloon, to make advance plans to take an early morning ride. I urge everyone to make very early plans for the Albuquerque as space for hookups is extremely limited. They will not work with a group for reserving spaces, so everyone is on their own after departing Red River.
Reservations open for the 2019 Albuquerque Balloon Fest on October 23, 2018.
See: https://balloonfiesta.com/guest-guide/rv-information for additional 2019 information.
Also, Santa Fe Skies RV Park has been suggested as an alternative RV park to stay at for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fest.
See: www.santafeskiesrvpark.com for additional information.
Stops from Red River to Albuquerque should include at least a day in Taos (50 miles) and a day in Santa Fe (50 more miles) . It is an additional 50 miles to Albuquerque and Balloon Fiesta Park. See https://redriver.org/things-to-do/day-trips for more information.
There will be ample time during the rally for off road 4 wheel Jeep trips or Jeep rentals, hiking, biking, trout fishing in the river or several lakes around the area, on your own.
However, everyone should keep in mind the altitude is 8,500 feet and nights are usually at or near freezing during that time of year.
More firm details to follow in Spring, 2019 .

Rally Fee Refund Policy for a
Vintage Birds Chapter Rally
Whenever possible, the Chapter will attempt to refund any uncommitted rally fee due to a member’s cancellation.
Chapter policy for a Vintage Birds Chapter Rally is to spend all rally fees for the specific rally and normally subsidize the member’s rally fees with Chapter funds to enhance rally activities.
Therefore, in the case of a cancellation after the rally fee due date, most likely all of the member’s rally fee will have been committed as well as Chapter funds.
Refund policies for all other rallies, Non Vintage Birds Chapter Rallies, are determined and communicated by the Rally Host.
