:) Received the e-mail about registration for previous competitors. All signed up. Looking forward to one of my favorite matches in one of my favorite places!

Yep same time as FB3 Gun. Sure hate to miss HDC.

Not sure about motels but I know the RV park raises their prices 50% for the Ballon Festival.

Register soon if you want to shoot this match. Match registration has been open for about two weeks and the match is already more two-thirds full. The registration link reports that 48 of 150 slots are left.

When I attend this match I usually stay at one of the hotels off of I-40 and Coors road. I booked my hotel for this match and pretty much all of the hotels in this area were still at their "Normal" price. The Balloon Festival doesn't seem to be affecting the prices of the hotels in that location. At least not yet. I would suggest that you book your hotel sooner than later though because there will be a limited supply of rooms due to a bunch of people attending the Balloon Festival.

We have the stages all done and approved - we will start posting them a little closer to the match and promote the sponsor with the stage they sponsored.

If you haven't booked your hotel yet I would highly recommend that you do it now. We don't have a match hotel because we weren't able to negotiate any better rate than you could get with any of the online hotel sites. The range in on the west side of Albuquerque and you want a hotel on the west or south side of Albuquerque to avoid the Balloon Fiesta Traffic (can be a nightmare!).

I'll be sending out a mass email soon with more details.

Was able to add 11 people off the waitlist today! If you are on the waitlist please check your email for your link to pay and squad. I expect we will be able to accommodate everyone on the waitlist in the match!

I just got the acceptance email for the match - I'm very excited as this will be my first travelling match. Any veterans of this event care to exchange PM's to discuss some logistics?

I see that the stages are up at rgpsc.com. Looks like a revival of some previous HDC stages from Master Bridges.
