    UPDATE:
    Camping:
    I just got off the phone with trailhead campground. I spoke to the main guy in charge and went over my frustrations and here is the deal. as he stated to me before and confired they have plenty of places to camp. WE HAVE NO NEED TO MAKE ANY RESERVATIONS HE ASSURED ME THEY HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM FOR ALL OF US AND THEN SOME IF WE FILL UP THE TENT SPOTS.
    So the guys who have reserved we will get together and add up the cost of the total and anyone who is camping who hasnt made reservations can pay into that so everyone is on the same page probably around $5 per night based on how many people are going and the sights we reserved....DO NOT WORRY ABOUT CAMP SIGHTS WE HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM AND THE RUN OFF THE PLACE SO NO MORE PEOPLE NEED TO MAKE RESERVATIONS AS YOU ARE THROWING MONEY AWAY :)

    Currently working on sponsors until I have definite commitments I do not want to comment yet but we should have some good sponsors giveaways etc. We are working with AOAA to put this event on and make it an annual thing. They are kindly letting us use their big covered garage area for vendors and setting up as well as the field next to it. We are working out the camping details now but even if we don't get a discount the camp site is brand new and very nice and has everything from tent camping to full on trailer setups. I will update camping details as I get them in the next few Days!
