Membership Requirements

You must possess (own, rent, or borrow) a self-contained* RV unit with integrated holding tanks for fresh, black, and grey water, and agree to abide by the club rules and regulations.

 

*no porta-potties.

Membership Privileges

Reserved parking at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport field for the Adirondack Balloon Festival, and participation in various club-sponsored activities during the festival.

Please note:  The RV parking area is not a "campground" - it is simply an open, unimproved field that Warren County generously allows us to use for one weekend a year during the Adirondack Balloon Festival.   There are no hookups for water or sewer, all garbage must be brought home with you after the event, and there are no campfires allowed.  

 

The Northeast Hot Air RV'ers makes no claims as to the suitability of the site for RV parking and assumes no responsibility for your vehicle.  

Parking

Field Assignment

Please see photo for parking sections.

Groups

Groups that wish to ensure parking together must return all applications and dues at the same time.

 

Groups wishing to park together must arrive together.

 

If you arrive in the area early, need to detach a tow, or need to meet with your group, you can stage at the Northbound I-87 rest area between exits 17 & 18, or at the K-Mart at the corner of Quaker Rd. and Dix Avenue in Glens Falls.

Gates open for RV Parking 2pm Friday

RVs may arrive on Friday from 2 pm until 7:30.  RVs cannot be parked after dark

 

Once the RVs are parked, they are expected to remain parked for the duration of the gathering.  

 

Volunteers will direct RVs to their assigned parking area.  It is VITAL that your parking assignment be affixed to your windshield when you come through the gate.

Please don't cause a back up

RVs that wish to detach their towed vehicle must do so before arriving at the gate!

 

We do not have a place for you to detach other than in the field.

Towed Parking Area

This is a separate parking area for vehicles that will come and go during the weekend.  (No vehicles in the field may move after dark on Friday until Sunday's exit)

 

If you tow your RV and will need to go back out, you should detach your tow vehicle and park in the Towed Parking area on Friday.

 

The circular parking decal is used for the cars that park in the Towed Parking Area.  This decal must be affixed to your windshield at all times.

Assistance

If you need help, please ask.

If you need any assistance, please see one of the officers or committee members. 

 

The “Host RV” at the beginning of each section will also be able to assist you.

Organizing Committee

The club is 100% volunteer-run.

The organizing committee is made up of a dozen or so dedicated volunteers, including the officers, who meet throughout the year to plan each year’s event.  They put in countless hours designing and maintaining the website, preparing materials for mailings, processing applications, planning activities for the annual gathering, making phone calls, recruiting and organizing volunteers to work at the event, assigning parking spots, etc.

 

We thank them for their outstanding efforts!

 

More committee members are always welcome.  If you would like to join the organizing committee, please contact us for the meeting dates and location.
